Just google "porn shemales". This is really kind of dumb post not taking into account reality.

No one said men couldn't take female hormones and dress up like women. It just doesn't make them women.

As insanely politically correct as Britian has become, I'm surprised she was just fired. You can get a stretch in prison over there for such statements.

But, but, but, they have free speech and all, right?

Good luck to you if you are ever in a situation with a bunch of different people all using different identifying pronouns of choice ...

Remember, one slip up and you could be fired for misgendering. Terrible hate crime these days.

Can't forget to consider the gender fluid either! Their pronouns change as their gender changes -- being fluid and all -- so what is correct one day may not be correct the next day... or even the next minute....

Absolutely shocking.
But to single the UK out is highly inaccurate, there has been an avalanche of similar instances in many countries around the world, including the US.
The US is not immune from this inane disease.

As a bit of an aside; I travel around the UK quite a bit and I have quite a large circle of friends and associates etc from all walks of life and guess what, not one person I know has actually witnessed or experienced first or even second hand something like this.
We seem to read a bit about it.....but no-one actually see's it.

But I am sick to death of the PC Brigade and snowflake hyper sensitivities and their invasion and influence on MSM and the political class.

No you can't.
I frequently - possibly an understatement - voice my thoughts and opinions publicly which can be very, very non-PC and love winding up snowflake social justice warriors......never been brought to the attention of the police and/or authorities.

This is patently false: "There are two sexes. Men are male. Women are female."

Just google "porn shemales". This is really kind of dumb post not taking into account reality.



If this isn't an example of why no one should ever take you seriously, I don't know what would.

JK Rowling defended a person's professional quality as an employee who has an unpopular opinion and is being punished because of politics. There's no indication that her work ethic suffered for having such opinions and no reason to criticize her as a citizen let alone terminating her. Rowling disagrees with the basis for removing the lady and I personally find it hard to rebuke her for that.

Seems like people work in environments like that everyday without a problem.

If anyone is fired for this terrible hate crime maybe it isn't the situation that is the problem?

I just stopped talking to anyone at work or refer to them as if they are third person. It avoids all questions of pronoun.

Let's not forget that there are people that exist on this planet (and forum) that are intersex. Legitimately destroys the male/female binary discourse right out of the water.

We might as well redefine how many chromosomes people have because of genetic abnormalities. It's a stupid argument.

i know you're all having heaps of fun getting gigantically outraged over misinformation as usual but here i come to ruin the Rage Hour with a couple of inconvenient facts:

- the woman concerned was NOT FIRED. her contract came up for renewal, and after review the bosses decided not to renew her contract and let her go. Reasonably sure that's the sort of standard capitalist business practice you goons love to fight for but okay whatever

- ONE reason - and not the only one - for her contract not being renewed was that she was targetting and harrassing an LGBT member of the office she worked in. this wasn't some whiny sjw passive aggressiveness, other people in the office saw this happening and shared their concerns about it.

- the british court, who ruled against her, are known to be a quite conservative and traditional lot, hardly some backroom bar of flaming homosexuals so do you suppose it might be possible she could have been proven to be in the wrong? ;o

- JK Rowling is neoliberal trash and the details of her deteriorating situation have been known and discussed back and forth for a long time in left circles. this isn't something new or unexpected, this is the MSM finally picking up on what people have been saying for years thanks to a particularly tasty piece of gossip.

- trans women are women. trans women always have and always will exist. trans women are living full, happy lives out in the world, unencumbered by any of your hateful obsession and you will die mad, chewing on your bile because that's not something any of you can ever hope to change.

Translation:

"Neoliberal trash" means someone we used to like who is no longer "pure" or "woke" enough to be a fellow traveler with us.

You better be careful. Purge enough people from your cause and you may wake up someday to discover you have no friends left although long before then you'll find out that your threats no longer carry much meaning. When everyone is a "hater", they all tend to look around and realize no one actually is. Then they look back at you and wonder what your problem is.

I fixed that for you.

She lost her job. Use whatever weasel words you want to use, but she no longer has that job because her superiors didn't like her words...


- ONE reason - and not the only one - for her contract not being renewed was that she was targetting and harrassing an LGBT member of the office she worked in. this wasn't some whiny sjw passive aggressiveness, other people in the office saw this happening and shared their concerns about it.


No. MAYA was targeted by colleagues after her words and harassed for not using THEIR words.

In October 2018, colleagues at CGD confronted Forstater about her tweets, "alleging that they were 'transphobic'," Tayler's judgment said.

As usual, it was the Transactivists TARGETING and HARASSING others for not playing into their sexual fetish.


- JK Rowling is neoliberal trash and the details of her deteriorating situation have been known and discussed back and forth for a long time in left circles. this isn't something new or unexpected, this is the MSM finally picking up on what people have been saying for years thanks to a particularly tasty piece of gossip.


Neoliberal trash? LOL!!! Labels, labels, labels... here's one for you: JK Rowling is a proud, strong, and well spoken WOMAN who took a stand to protect both HER own interests, and the best interest of another proud, strong, and well spoken WOMAN, and pretty much every WOMAN. SHE took a stand for WOMEN and their rights against those who would trample OUR rights, dictate our speech, and inform our very thoughts.... as well as the very violent and misogynistic MEN who can and will put WOMEN and GIRLS in physical danger by exploiting loosened safeguarding in THEIR best interests.


- trans women are women. trans women always have and always will exist. trans women are living full, happy lives out in the world, unencumbered by any of your hateful obsession and you will die mad, chewing on your bile because that's not something any of you can ever hope to change.


Trans women are MEN... some men with AUTOGYNEPHILIA always have and always will exist. But these are not WOMEN living full, happy lives out in the world. And we both know it. There are so many sad stories -- many truly traumatic, others simply heartbreaking -- about the pain these men suffer. But pretending like they're really really REALLY women isn't the answer. Nor is bullying and abusing born WOMEN the answer.

Stamp your little foot and cry and scream all you want because the mean WOMEN won't play. This LARPing isn't helping them. Too many are suffering from genuine mental and emotional issues which need to be addressed, and this isn't being done.

Prison sentence? For spoken Words?! WTF REALLY?!?!? I hope You are Jokin'.
Whatever happened to "Sticks and Stones can Break My Bones, but Words can Never Hurt Me"?
Oh I get It. Jail for thinkin' unkind Words. Prison for Sayin' 'em. Ok Yeah, now that makes sense...

Ummm I found This. Is Relevant I believe.

"Hermaphroditism, the condition of having both male and female reproductive organs. Hermaphroditic plants—most flowering plants, or angiosperms—are called monoecious, or bisexual. Hermaphroditic animals—mostly invertebrates such as worms, bryozoans (moss animals), trematodes (flukes), snails, slugs, and barnacles—are usually parasitic, slow-moving, or permanently attached to another animal or plant.

In humans, conditions that involve discrepancies between external genitalia and internal reproductive organs are described by the term intersex. Intersex conditions are sometimes also referred to as disorders of sexual development (DSDs)."

uh, the people you're referring to here were cis? they were cis people working in the office who noticed how deranged and cruel she was being and rightly called it out.
So can cis people be transactivists now? i thought any cis person supporting trans rights was just hypnotised by the satanic agenda? y'all gotta get your epithets sorted out.




-- WOMEN living full, happy lives out in the world. And we both know it. There are so many sad stories --


dang, you really can't handle being called out for knowing absolutely nothing, can you? you've already admitted many many times that you don't KNOW any trans women and that you definitely don't want to listen so how about you stop pretending you have any idea what their lives are like? i don't know what the life of a shriveled hateful prune is like and i don't pretend to so maybe you have some psychological need for this, but i honestly think it would be a lot easier for you if you just dropped the pretense that you give a damn and just revel in your hatred. your posts would seem a little less dementia riddled, at the very least.

sorry, can't stick around, gotta go hang out with a bunch of my trans friends to just enjoy our lovely fulfilling lives together. i'd suggest finding a wholesome hobby or focussing on the nice things in your own life but you've made it abundantly clear that you want to be chewing on your bile. feel free to continue spitting your venom everywhere but u should really know it's just laughable and it effects nothing and no one.

No such thing as "cis" people. Please stop misgendering people. The sexual orientation and/or gender identity of the activism is not the issue. Their activism is.


you've already admitted many many times that you don't KNOW any trans women...


Yup. But I sure know WOMEN.


...and that you definitely don't want to listen...


I have never said or thought any such thing. And, in fact, it is because of the Trans Activists and all their tantrums that I decided to look into it. So no.


so how about you stop pretending you have any idea what their lives are like?


When the men PRETENDING they have any idea what a woman's life is like and stop trampling the rights, privacy, safety and dignity of women, then we won't have any more problems, and I won't have any more to say about it.

Just remember, for EXACTLY the same reason that you think your "you don't know" is a gotcha, men are not women no matter how much they say they are.


i don't know what the life of a shriveled hateful prune is like...


Neither do I. But calling me names doesn't change the truth. I don't give a rats' patootie. Just more narcissistic crapola from the kings of narcissism. Too many women have been bullied and intimidated and insulted by Trans Activists and their activism. Ain't gonna happen here Buddy. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not ever.


...so maybe you have some psychological need for this...


Just protecting women's rights.

However, given the disproportionately high rate of mental and emotional disorders in the transgender population, I certainly understand why you would go there. Because it is a source of pain and trauma in the trans population. Which is a very legitimate concern, and gender "affirmation" is not the end-all-be-all that it is touted to be... that we are being forced to believe. It is harmful.


...but i honestly think it would be a lot easier for you if you just dropped the pretense that you give a damn and just revel in your hatred. your posts would seem a little less dementia riddled, at the very least.


No pretense and no dementia on MY part. Unfortunately, because of the nature of the beast, it is necessary to defend against and fight back the activism, and the harm it causes to women and girls especially, but also trans persons themselves.

In fact, I am (and have been) working on a thread all about desistance and detransition sources for the MANY MANY folks who wholly (and too often painfully) regret their transition, and have very serious concerns for OTHERS who are being led to make harmful medical decisions that adversely affect the rest of their lives. The horror stories from "bottom" surgery are unconscionable.

I hope and pray that these folks find a way to be happy and at peace with themselves some day. I also hope with all my heart that these folks find a way to sue the frankenstein doctors -- and other professionals -- doing this to them for every freaking penny they ever earn... that might help them find their peace too. I hope the backlash and fall out absolutely ruins every single person responsible for these medical travesties.

But until men "identifying" as women stop trampling women's rights, safety, privacy and dignity, I can and will say whatever I so choose. If you don't like it, don't read it. But I will not be bullied into silence. Not by you. Not by Trans Activists. Not by anyone.

In effect, what you're all trying to tell us to do is say that 2+2=5. I'm sorry it doesn't and never will. 2+2=4, always has and always will.

Now when you back off and realize that perhaps in some instances there are those who deeply wish that 2+2 did not equal 4 even though it does, and that they will do everything to conform their daily existence to a reality that is 2+2=5 which can never truly be, we can talk. Because that's the truth the rest of us see and can accept and tolerate. You cannot expect us to play the game to the depths you do, but you can expect that we respect your right to play it.
