Transgender bullying is scaring respectable old organisations into silence

For years Katie Alcock had helped that pillar of middle class Britain, The Guide movemeny run Brownie and Girl Guide groups in her hometown, Lancaster. Then suddenly she was fired. The reason given in a statement by Girlguiding
(the trendy new name for the modern, gender – fluid Girl Guides was that Dr. Alcock,who in her day job in a lecturer and researcher in developmental psychology at Lancaster University, was she had violated its policies on equality and diversity.

Her offence was to suggest that science is correct and fashionable virtue signalling wrong, that people born male who simply say they must be accepted as real women because they feel female inside, should not automatically be welcomed by a female-only organisation and, for instance, share tents or bathrooms with adolescent girls. Remember, these biologically male women need not have surgically reconfigured genitals, we are required to accept that chicks-with-dicks are not likely to behave any differently in communal showers that girls who are born girls.

In any other context, Alcock’s views would be seen as plain old fashioned common sense. But when it comes to transgenderism, common sense has been thrown out of the window. Read her account of the incident HERE

Organisations like Girlguiding must now have policies safeguarding the rights of transgendered girls in interactions with real girls. We all know adolescent girls can be absolute bitches and capable of being unspeakably cruel if, for example, the new girl has to get her dick out while on a camping trip, and that those whose male anatomy gives them the potential to be a threat to those girls cannot be trusted in one on one situations (adolescent boys are notirious for misreading signals, cn we reasonably expect adolescent chicks-with-dicks to behave differently. In a sane world, Girlguiding would stand squarely behind Alcock.

So why, when the interests of transgender people are invoked, does Girlguiding operate a different standard? Why not organise joint camping trips with the scouts and arrange acommodation so boys and girls share tents and shower facilities in the name of diversity?

Girlguiding is not alone in this insanity however. Universities, local councils, the BBC, and charities are among organisations where women and who question badly thought out, scientifically incorrect, politically correct policies intended to promote transgender equality fear to express their opinions because to question the extreme left line would be career suicide.

A common concern is that measures intended to protect people born male who now identify as women or vice versa will have consequences for services and opportunities previously reserved for people born with biologically female bodies. Because there is no getting away from the science, women and men are physically different. We have already seen evidence of this unfairness to biological women in sport, where transgenderd weight lifters with typically male upper body strength (and typically male wedding tackle,) have anihilated the competition in womens’ events.

The question of toilets comes up with depressing frequency in this debate too. Many organisations are introducing “gender neutral” bathrooms, or designating women’s toilets as “gender neutral” to spare transgender people the awkward choice of risking ridicule by use the facility that aligns with their physical sex or their professed gender or a kneee in the bollocks by using the womens’ facilities.

It is all being done in the name of transgender ‘rights. ‘But what about women who aren’t happy sharing such private spaces with biological males? Or who worry that opening facilities and services formerly reserved for women to male-born transwomen (who are not surgically altered or even receiving hormone therapy is unfair on women who, according to feminist orthodoxy, have faced a lifetime of social and economic sexism? What about their rights. Where is the fairness in stripping a group of their right to the privacy of gender – segregated facilities in order to grant a small but completely unreasonable minority the privileges they demand.

There has already been a case in Britain of a convict who in his male persona was a convicted rapist, successfully convincing the authorities that he ‘felt he was a woman’ to obtain a transfer to a women only prison, where within a few months he was arrested and sent for trial on several counts of rape and sexual assault against female inmates.

And then there is Canadian the case of Jessica Yaniv, who has sued several beauty therapists to financial ruin because they refused to give her a bikini line was on her female cock and big, hairy ball sack.

You Couldn’t Make It Up

A few days ago this blog reported on the case of Vancouver man Jonathan Yaniv, who identifies as Jessica and wears little girl style party frocks. In politically correct Canada this is sufficient for him to be legally recognised as a woman.

Revelling in his new, legally but not visually affirmed feminine identity Jessica, who in his male persona as Jonathan is a convicted sex offender, has been harassing female beauticians who refuse to give him a bikini like wax job because – well in short he doesn’t have a bikini line, he still has his big, hairy old male dangly bits. And some ladies in the beauty business do not wish to handle such ugly things.

OK, so why am I repeating all this when it was reported last week? Well, because today I came across this news item at Press For Truth:

“’Jessica’ Yaniv UNHINGED! Press For Truth ASSAULTED At Tribunal Hearings!!! Jonathan Yaniv (who goes by the name ‘Jessica’) wants to FORCE other women to legally have to touch his genitals. While covering the tribunal hearings Dan Dicks of Press For Truth politely requested an interview but was met with an aggressive reaction which led to an assault.”

The whole story is beyond sanity of course, but what is so brilliant here is that the online news site reporter sent to cover the story of the man who wanted a bikini line wax on his cock and balls is called Dan Dicks!

You couldn’t make it up.

And for all you red blooded men out there, here’s another look at the lovely Jessica who, I’m sure you will agree, looks as feminine and alluring as a spotted dick pudding.

More Fake News Supporting Electric Cars

 

Another advertisement in The Telegraph today for electric cars, this on claining it only costs £4 to charge the batteries to the same level as filling the tank of a conventional car.

I fill up my car’s tank for just £4′: have electric cars reached tipping point?

Screams the headline over a picture of a couple of proud (and surprisingly unburned) Tesla owners and their pride and joy, £75,000 worth of what looks like a family sized car with nothing special about it, apart from the fact that by the time you get to the end of the street you will probably need to stop for several hours to recharge the batteries.

Tony Cuthbert with £75,000 Tesla (picture Telegraph)

 

But does the owner’s boast stand up to scrutiny?

The cost of owning an electric car could come down to equal petrol and diesel within two years, according to auditor Deloitte, but for savvy drivers, going green could already make financial sense  the Telegraph says.

The market for electric vehicles (EVs) is growing at a rapid rate, with the number of models available set to exceed 200 in the next two years. Analysts predict another 10 million electric cars will be on British roads by the end of the next decade. But while the number of models has increased, growth in the numbers of actual sales is positively sluggish.

As combating climate change becomes increasingly important to many consumers, according to maker’s publicity, yet electric cars accounted for only 1.15% of global sales in 2017. I could not find a figure for 2018, but reports say there was modest growth. There are also reports that energy providers are flooding the market with innovative tariffs specifically aimed at drivers of electric cars, but here too the low cost of energy does not compensate for the high initial cost of installation. .

Tony Cuthbert, 59, from Gateshead, has been driving his Tesla Model S for just over a year after deciding he could be doing more to save the planet. His conscience has paid off as the company’s national network of free-to-use charging points, combined with cheap energy at home, means his running costs have fallen. Mr Cuthbert, an IT manager, mainly charges his vehicle overnight at home. He uses Octopus Energy’s Go EV tariff, which provides power at the reduced rate of 5p per kilowatt hour for several hours overnight, meaning a full charge of the Tesla costs around £4.

 

It costs £4 to fill up the tank because the tank isn’t very big.

At 14p/kWh, £4 would get you 28kWh of electricity. 1 litre of petrol is equivalent to 10kWh.

Electric engines are more efficient, so it would give you the same number of km as 5kWh.

£4 is therefore the equivalent of putting 6 litres of petrol in your car, which would cost £7.38 at £1.23 per litre, which is what I paid on Thursday.

The tax on £7.38 (6 litres) of petrol is £4.82, meaning it costs £2.56 for the actual petrol. The tax on £4 of electricity is 19p, meaning the actual electricity costs £3.81. So the only reason electricity is cheaper for filling your car is because the tax is cheaper.

And while it does not entirely account for the discrepancy, I guess the tax is cheaper partly because electricity doesn’t pump exhaust fumes into the air as much at the point of use as petrol/diesel do, but simply moves the dirt to the places where mining of materials and manufacture of batteries takes place, (i.e. not in countrys that have committed to zero carbon targets.

When a newspaper publishes an advertisement disguised as an article isn’t there some law that says readers must be clearly informed the content is advertising material.
The article is just another ad for EVs and Tesla in particular, none of the problems of EVs are mentioned, not even the tendency of Tesla vehicles to barbecue theior occupants.

It isn’t until we get to the comments we read of the vast subsidies governments are giving EV makers due to the punitive taxes on petrol and diesel, or the absolutely filthy and energy intensive industrial processes involved in manufacturing batteries (especially the mining and refining of rare earth metals,) and the equally filthy and energy intensive processes involved in recycling or scrapping batteries.

 

 

Far Left Fascist Students Force US College To Ban Free Speech

“Far left fascists, isn’t that a contradiction?” you might well ask. Many people might think so, but fascism is not a political philosphy in the way that communism, socialism, liberalism or conservatism are, it is about centralised power, in fact the word derives from a latin word, Fasces, which is a symbol of unbreakable authority. Fascism is authoritarianism, and politics of right or left can be authoritarian. In this article, from National Interest blog an example of the fascism of left wind students is presented:

Williams College Kowtows to Students Saying ‘Free Speech Harms’

authored by Jonathan Butcher

In 1755, Ephraim Williams Jr. led colonial forces and some 200 Mohawk allies into battle against French and Indian troops near Lake George, New York. But Williams marched into a deadly ambush.

He was killed in the fight, and his troops were driven back, suffering tremendous losses. But history records that those under his command fought bravely and made “a very handsome retreat.”

Today, the college that bears Williams’ name has been ambushed by its own students, and school officials have beaten a hasty and inglorious retreat.

At Williams College in Massachusetts, biology professor Dr. Luana Maroja wrote online last year that she was concerned about student and administrator attitudes regarding free speech.

She gathered more than 100 faculty signatures on a petition calling for the school to adopt what is known as the “Chicago Principles,” a statement in favor of free expression developed by the University of Chicago.

More than 60 schools have endorsed this statement, a welcome response to the disrupted events and other nonsense that have plagued universities around the country.

Some Williams students will have none of it. Maroja says that more than a dozen of them barged into a faculty meeting last November holding signs such as “free speech harms” and saying faculty were trying to “kill” the students.

 

After that, tensions escalated. The College Fix reports that a professor subsequently “threatened violence” if Williams adopted the Chicago statement. All this because Maroja dared to promote the idea that Williams should maintain a “climate of mutual respect.”

Williams is a private school, so the First Amendment doesn’t automatically apply to institutional activity there as it does on public college campuses. Still, students should expect that the school would want to promote the civil exchange of ideas.

And when discussions devolve into threats of violence, it’s small wonder that students opt to pursue truth via hysterical rhetoric and physical confrontation rather than through discussion and debate.

If you expected the college administration to stand up for free speech and mutual respect, think again. Earlier this week, Williams’ officials waved a white flag and announced the school will not adopt the Chicago statement but draft “speaker invitation guidelines.”

Turning away from principles protecting free speech adds to suspicions that there is a free speech crisis—or worse—at Williams.

Last month, the U.S. Department of Education launched an investigation of the college after its student government denied a pro-Israel student group official status.

As activity on campuses around the U.S. in recent years demonstrates, when individuals cannot express themselves without fear of harm, oppressors will threaten—and commit—harm.

A recent survey of college students found that more than half of respondents say shouting down speakers is “always” or “sometimes” acceptable. Sixteen percent of respondents say it is “always” or “sometimes” acceptable to use violence to stop a speech protest or rally.

These responses are disturbing. Civil society—life in the office, in your neighborhood, at your child’s soccer game—depends on people tolerating those who do not share their beliefs, not trying to silence them through intimidation or violence. The American dream dies if we live in fear of persecution.

Williams officials should take seriously the threats posed to the next generation of adults that come from limiting the ideas that can be considered on campus.

The school should require students to attend sessions on free speech during freshman orientation—and explain that hiding from ideas with which you disagree is a poor strategy for life.

New policies for public universities in Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, and Wisconsin now serve as examples of how to protect everyone’s freedom of expression in a campus community.

These policies affirm the idea that anyone should be allowed to protest or demonstrate in public areas as long as they do not prevent others from doing the same. Moreover, they stipulate that their public universities must be prepared to penalize individuals who silence others.

United Nations set to impose global ban on criticism of Islam

We have reported before on The United Nations (UN), a supra – national organisation made up of elitists appointed by other elitists, overreaching its mandate and trying to act as a global government, imposing policies that nobody voted, formulated by bureaucrats that nobody voted for, for on the sovereign nations of the world.

Here’s the latest example of this globalist authoritaianism and it is probably the most worrying yet for citizens of the democratic nations. The UN is planning to impose a global ban on telling the truth about Islam, because hearing the brutality of Islamic dogma described in detail upsets Muslims apparently:

from OneNews Now

Nations belonging to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and other governments adhering to Shariah law across the world are ramping up their new campaign with the United Nations to prohibit all speech that Muslims consider offensive.

“Islamist nations … long have sought a determination from the United Nations that any criticism of Islam or Muslims is ‘Islamophobia’ and banned globally,’” WND reported, noting that with 57 members, the OIC represents the largest voting bloc in the U.N. “But each time it has come up for a vote, more realistic arguments prevailed and the campaign never was legitimized.”

After U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres unveiled the new “U.N. Strategy and Plan of Action” to fight so-called “hate speech” at a special meeting in the packed Economic and Social (ECOSOC) chamber, Pakistan Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi incited more support to silence any opposition to Islam and its adherents – including speech condemning Islam for its scriptural inciting of terrorists to conduct jihad (holy war) on “infidels.”

“An inevitable consequence is to fan the flames of bigotry, intolerance, anti-Muslim hatred and xenophobia,” Lodhi proclaimed before ambassadors, senior diplomats and high-ranking U.N. officials, as quoted in a press release, according to MSN. “My Prime Minister Imran Khan has recently again called for urgent action to counter Islamophobia, which is today the most prevalent expression of racism and hatred against ‘the other.'”

Guterres said the overarching goal of the U.N. plan is to identify, prevent and confront what the U.N. and Islamic nations consider “hate speech.”

Oxford Academics Turn On Gay BLT Propagandists For Pushing Unscientific Claims

lgbt rights protest
Gay, Lesbian and Trans rights protestor holds a placard making a typically idiotic statement – human rights apply to all humans, trans-rights are the infantile demands of self pitying losers.

‘More than 30 Oxford academics have blasted Stonewall for pushing ‘tendentious and antiscientific claims’ in the trans awareness training it gives to universities according to a report in The Sunday Times (a more sensationalized version of the same story appears in The Daily Mail if you are blocked by The Times paywall).

The professors and lecturers have taken issue with Oxford University’s compulsory training programme on Gay, Lesbian and Transgender issues, that includes dogmatic statements about permissible attitudes “towards Gay, Lesbian and especiall Transgender rights, including such unmitigated wank as “gender is how people interpret and view themselves.” The Oxford academics expressed their opposition to such unscientific nonsense being forced on teaching staff, research fellows and students in a letter passed to The Sunday Times.

They call for universities to sever links with Stonewall and other LGBT charities until and unless those organisations dump their fascistic attempts to restrict freedom of though and commit to ‘fully supporting academic freedom of thought’.

Academics are also being bullied by student groups to withdraw invitations to “transphobic speakers,” i.e. anyone who do not accept “that trans people are the gender they say they are” or maintain that gender is determined by our biological sex rather that “feelings”.

They fear the new rules university managers have accepted after being bullied by Gay BLT lobbying could see staff lose their jobs, and that they contravene the roght of free speech.

Modern history professor Selina Todd is quoted by the Sunday Times as saying: “[This] is really pushing an agenda which is dogmatic and completely overruling freedom of speech… I am very scared that academics will start to lose their jobs.

“I feel uncomfortable. I’ve told my employer that I feel vulnerable and I’ve had students say they feel intimidated by what’s going on at this campus.”

Oxford and Cambridge last year spent £55,000 between them on LGBT training so staff are better equipped to help students who may be struggling. According to a NUS LGBTQ+ report from 2014, just 20 per cent of trans students feel completely safe on campus, which begs questions just how many of these mental cases are there at Oxford. One in three trans students said they had experienced bullying or harassment – while 51 per cent have seriously considered dropping out of their course. The Daily Stirrer does not see that as any loss to either the university or society in general were that to happen.

And what are these trans students studying for anyway, degrees in self pity?

Calls To Suspend New Labour MP Before She Is Sworn In …

Just when you thought politics could not get any crazier.

The Jewish Labour Movement (JLM) today called for the party whip be withdrawn from Lisa Forbes who was elected MP for Peterborough in a by election last night, before she has even been sworn into Parliament. The Jewish Labour Movement (and who would have thought the Jew – hating Labour Party would have a jewish section?) want Ms. Forbes investigated and possibly kicked out of the party over her alleged anti – Semitism.

0_count-and-declaration-take-place-for-the-peterborough-by-election

Ms Forbes won the seat by a small majority on Thursday, holding off the challenge from Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party whose candidate, local celebrity Mike Greene, had been tipped by polling firms to be heading for a landslide victory. Greene was beaten into second place by just 683 votes. However, a series of antisemitic posts from the newly elected Member of Parliament has led the JLM to call for her suspension.

Forbes reportedly ‘liked’ a Facebook post which said that Prime Minister Theresa May was pursuing a “zionist slave-masters agenda”. She also commented approval on a post that claimed that Mossad were responsible for creating Islamist terrorist groups such as ISIS.

The newly minted MP has also declined to accept the definition of antisemitism as put forward by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, something which other parties including the Conservatives have adopted as policy.

The JLM issued a statement saying Forbes was a “perfect example” of a Labour member who “rejected the accepted definition of antisemitism and supported anti – Semitic causes yet was still welcomed in the Labour Party and is allowed to seek public office as a candidate for the party.

“Ms Forbes should have the whip suspended immediately,” the statement continued, calling for the EHRC’s investigation into Labour’s institutional racism to be accelerated and widened in scope. The party is simply incapable of dealing with racism internally the JLM statement concluded.

The Jewish Chronicle reports that two senior Labour MPs, Dame Margaret Hodge, who last year accused party leader Jeremy Corbyn of being an antisemite, and Dame Louise Ellman, vice-chairman of the Labour Friends of Israel, have formally complained to the Labour Party about Ms Forbes.
