Oh FFS. Can we PLEASE cancel him already. He's an embarrassment.

by Anonymousreply 106/27/2020

I cant imagine how I’ve managed to make my way in life without Owen explaining to me what I should think and how I should behave.

He really has a hilariously inflated sense of his own importance.

by Anonymousreply 206/27/2020

He had his hair styled to make this video. And look at his house.

One of the most privileged individuals on the scene right now.

He's making bank by being a gay man who fashionably screeches the recent orthodoxy of "Gay Lives Don't Matter"

Also worth noting Owen Jones was supporting Lloyd Russell Moyle last night. This morning Russell Moyle offered a totally insincere apology for his comments, which are not being accepted by anyone.

Jones and Russell Moyle represent the absolute worst in misogyny amongst gay men.

A gay man recognising the misogyny in other gay men is now homophobic?

Would I be homophobic to describe as racist the gay men who put "no blacks, no asians, no offence" on their hook up profiles?

And from a BBC article published this weekend:

[quote]And this discrimination also extends to what some people describe as transphobic preferences in the dating world: from cisgender gay men not wanting to date trans men, to the routine fetishisation of trans women.

If you're a gay man who doesn't find someone with a vagina sexually attractive, YOU ARE TRANSPHOBIC.

Or only when you can use that as an avenue for transphobia.

A gay man not being sexually aroused by people with vaginas is one thing.

Saying you would never consider meeting a guy because of their skin colour is something else entirely.

R44 What if I, a white man, said I was only into black men? You'd say that was OK, right? Or if I said I'm only into trans?

Despite both being obvious examples of fetishisation that excludes whole swathes of the population you wouldn't have a problem with it.

by Anonymousreply 4606/28/2020

[quote]What if I, a white man, said I was only into black men? You'd say that was OK, right? Or if I said I'm only into trans?

There's a difference between a preference and not finding people of a certain race attractive. There's not a single white person you'd contemplate having sex with?

And if said you were only into trans, fair enough! Assuming its trans men, you are attractive to vaginas and not penises. That's fine. We all have preferences when it comes to where we put our fingers, tongues and dicks.

Do you have a link for that, R49?

by Anonymousreply 5006/28/2020

[quote] Why is he obsessed with trans rights?

He joins those gay men and others who want to use “trans rights” as a cudgel against everyone else. They absolutely MUST virtue signal how incredibly fucking woke they are, and to do that they will make damn sure that you know this is THE most pressing and urgent issue of our time to which you must pay close attention. In fact — let me get the wording correct — “we must do all we can to center the most marginalized members of the community.”

This has less to do with trans rights and everything to do with letting you know that they are the wokest of the most woke. 🙄

by Anonymousreply 5106/28/2020

Or maybe he just sympathizes with a group who he feels, like gay men, have faced a struggle?

by Anonymousreply 5206/28/2020

Ignore the spammy troll (r20, et al) who just comes into these threads to insult women and accuse us all of being women and radfems. He shows up in every trans-related thread and his tactic is to distract and divide, anything to change the subject from trans.

He posts endlessly and the only solution is to block him and not engage. He's posted 18 times in this thread already.

by Anonymousreply 5306/28/2020

Owen Jones is not entitled to criticism for his views. That's how he makes his living. And he takes many radical positions that are far out of step with most people, who are mostly moderate. So it's inevitable he gets it back.

Owen Jones is one of the reasons people are fleeing Labour. To get away from the authoritarians like him and Corbyn.

It'd be nice if he stood up for actual gay people and Lesbians.

by Anonymousreply 5706/28/2020

And again, Pride and gay issues are sidelined for Trans. They've got to be out front every fucking time - taking the banners away from the gays and lesbians who started everything.

If you don't want to get lost in Pride, start your own damn parade on a different day so you can have all the attention to yourself. But no, they don't want that. They just want to takeover and sit in front without doing the work of putting the Pride events together.

[quote] Gay men here--like myself--either don't care at all or have been annoyed by tranny shenanigans for a while.

Well, I don’t care about trans either.

It’s not my issue.

But I do oppose to the increasingly obvious homophobia in the radical feminism that’s behind the spate of transphobia on this site and in broader culture.

Of all the pro-trans people they could attack — including straight men and women — the TERFs seem to love going after Owen Jones more than anyone.

That’s homophobic.

by Anonymousreply 6506/28/2020

R64 - you have reading comprehension problems then. It's not black and white like that and you know it. You want to see it as people in support of things and anyone counter to 100% complete blind support must be bigots and conservatives.

The Owen Jones fanboy in this thread is the same one who thinks sex categories in sport should be abolished and women should compete against men the same height as them.

Owen Jones is angry that everything he's campaigned for over the last 10 years is coming to an end.

Sanders has been rejected in the US, so he'll be desperate for Trump to beat Biden so he can be pious in his "If Bernie had run he'd have beaten Trump" rewriting of history.

In the UK, Keir Starmer has only been leader of the opposition for 3 months and is already more popular than Boris Johnson and is the most popular leader of the opposition since Tony Blair. The candidate Owen Jones supported for Labour Leader was sacked for promoting an article by an actor with a Jewish conspiracy theory trope in, and Starmer's cabinet now has no Corbyn supporters of influence in it.

The movement he's supported is grinding to halt and he has no influence other than getting his 1 million followers to launch pile ons against women he doesn't like, which lets face it is most of them.

by Anonymousreply 7106/28/2020

Honestly, like so many of our progressive betters. My politics shifted from centre to the left during the last three months in particular, but I gotta be honest, many of the leading lights make it really fucking hard to be happy about it. You don't bring anybody along by hectoring or talking down to them or shaming, not unless you want to intimidate people into backing you... and those are pretty shifting sands. I know I will get killed for saying that.... DL is one of the great wellsprings of virtue by the running of the bulls.

by Anonymousreply 92Last Monday at 4:50 AM

I prefer Murray -- he's more gay centric, though I disagree with his conclusions as to whether trans are good for gays. All his politics are informed by what's good for gays.

Jones has the problem a lot of gay men have: caring about others. A lot of gay men tend to feel like stewarts of the broader LGBT community, unaware of the extent to which many on the not gay men in that community hate them. Jones' politics are more about what he believes is good for the world in general, not gay men specifically.
