The Human Right Scampaign Gets the TERF it Always Wanted

The Washington Blade is passing off as journalism a pathetic, sycophantic press release about the Human Right Scampaign’s latest manufactured millionaire-to-be, Alphonso David.  What the body count will be among those who drown in the slobber while attempting to read it is anybody’s guess.

All that trans people really need to take away from the thing is this quote from David:

The lesbian community may have very different concerns than the transgender community and we need to make sure that all of those concerns are being represented equally.

One person remarked to me that this sounded like code.

I disagree.

It doesn’t sound like code at all.

It is naked TERFism.

Sarah McBride and the other trans tokens of Rhode Island Avenue who think Gay, Inc. has accepted them now have a choice to make: Do they continue drinking the kool-aid while getting rich off of their own people’s blood? Or do they do the right thing?

Always remember: There are few sure bets, but you can bet anything and everything every time that HRC and everyone infected by its professionalized transphobia will always do the wrong thing.

The Next Cis Lesbian to be ‘Erased’ by Trans Women Will be the First

From Carrie Lyell at The Independent:

Yes, lesbians are marginalised within the LGBT+ movement, but this has nothing to do with trans people. These tactics are nothing but scaremongering designed to divide us….

Let’s be clear: in my personal life, and as editor of the world’s leading magazine for queer women, I know a lot of trans people. Not one of them has ever tried to recruit me or even asked me if I’ve ever thought about transitioning. Not one has “pressured” me to “accept them as sexual partners”. This is scaremongering, designed to divide us. But believe me: it’s not a thing.

Yes, it is scaremongering.

But there is another term for it: exterminationist bigotry.

There is a reason that #TERFIsNotASlur.  And a significant portion of it involves the fact that almost all of the voices fraudulently asserting that TERFs are being ‘silenced’ by trans women are allowed to use said voices in forums such as editorial column inches in major publications and – my favorite – tenured positions in academia that trans women are excluded from ever being considered for (often by the very TERF academics who claim that they are being silenced.)

#TERFIsNotASlur.

Never has been, never will be.

Is Cosmopolitan UK Going to Remove This Example of Group Libel Now That The Source Admits It Is False?

UK ‘journalism‘…

Murderer Ian Huntley wants to change gender so he can live in a women’s prison

…certainly seems to be TERF-infected.

The now-proven-false story of that particular male inmate allegedly desiring to transition was not merely false, not merely inflammatory against that particular inmate but instead an act of group libel against all trans people everywhere – created, perpetrated and propagated with the sole intent of driving negative publicity against all trans people everywhere, but particularly against trans women.

Christianist Hatemongers Admit to Their Fraud in Their Attempt to Kill Civil Rights in Massachusetts

I refuse to provide a direct link to any hate group’s site, but if you want to type it in on your own, here it is:

MA-LS-1

It can also be found here:

MA-LS-4

So…

What will you find there?

The rallying cry of the pro-family groups trying to repeal the law was the well-known “bathroom safety” argument – that in addition to transgenders, this law allows male sexual predators to lurk in women’s restrooms to prey on girls and women. This was technically true, but was largely contrived.

Contrived…

MA-LS-2

Translated: They made it up…

Just like trans people have been saying christianists and TERFs (not that there is any substantive difference between the two anymore) have been doing for years.

History repeats itself

Over a decade ago when LGBT movement took the “gay marriage” battles into the state legislatures, and later into the federal courts, the major pro-family groups tried a similar strategy. As we reported at the time, they refused to argue that homosexuality was immoral, had terrible health risks, was fraught with addiction and mental health problems, etc.

Instead, they concocted less offensive arguments such as, “Every child needs a father and a mother” and “the word ‘marriage’ is special” – and used them almost exclusively. It actually worked for a little while. But while technically true, before long they were easily picked apart by the LGBT lobby, and they began their string of wins. Nevertheless, on every level the pro-family lawyers and lobbyists refused to budge from that approach. Without any credible opposing arguments, the “gay marriage” push cruised to victories right up to the US Supreme Court. It was a shameful display of legal malpractice.

Now with the “transgender anti-discrimination” bills the same thing is happening. Our side concocted the “bathroom safety” male predator argument as a way to avoid an uncomfortable battle over LGBT ideology, and still fire up people’s emotions. It worked in Houston a few years ago.

But the LGBT lobby has now figured out how to beat it.

Concocted…

MA-LS-3

They dreamed it up…

which means they need to look in the mirror when they talk about people being delusional.

They made it up…

which means they committed actionable defamation against the entirety of the trans community.

They fabricated it…

which means they committed fraud – because they raised money off of it.

They invented it…

which means, like all professional con artists, they’ll just try again to invent something that might actually work just a little bit longer – just long enough for them to fully cash out and crawl away.

They lied…

which means they have conclusively demonstrated how little they care about the christian values that they claim they are battling to preserve by inflicting on everyone via force of law…

which means when next any of them appear in any forum – governmental or media – to speak in opposition to our civil rights, they should be vocally pummeled with “LIAR!” until they physically fall to pieces.

Its up to us to ensure that they don’t even come as close as they did this time to achieving their bigoted dreams.

But it is also up to legitimate media to bring their admission up – and place it front and center – any time that any christianisTERF squats in front of a camera or a microphone to bleat about the next fictional terror that they attribute to the existence of trans people (particularly trans women.)

“TERF” is not a slur now because it never was.

The same is true for “christianist.”

She couldn’t be bothered to include any words from any of the trans people who would be directly affected by TrumpCo’s smells-like-TERF-spirit policy.
