Saturday 10th December 2016 Jeremy Corbyn the leader of the Labour party was doing a speech on human rights which included domestic violence / domestic abuse. This was an important speech because it was the first time that a leader of a political party had addressed such an issue. Women were getting their voice heard and rightfully so.
As the above chart shows that 936 women have been killed by men over the past six years. 568 / 68% of those 936 women killed was down to a current or former partner. Those figures are shocking so it was about time a political leader spoke out in the UK regards domestic abuse / domestic violence.
However that speech by Jeremy Corbyn was not to last long. The stage was invaded by Peter Tatchell and his cronies to protest against Jeremy Corbyn’s apparent lack of response over Sallepo!
My response to that is Peter Tatchell decided to come in at the moment when Jeremy brought up the issue of domestic violence towards women in the UK as he hates women. This was a great opportunity to have the issues women face on a daily basis drowned out so Tatchell and his cronies went for it! In other words the voices / safety of women mean nothing to him!
Women were outraged by Tatchell’s protest and told him so over twitter like the response above. I removed the posters identity for safety reasons but you get the picture. Tatchell just ignored them in favour of going on about Syria. We know the situation in Syria is bad but that does not give you the right to shut down discussion about violence towards women.
So called Left Wing men took to twitter to defend Tatchell. This man above mansplained to lots of women that they were in the wrong and they should feel guilty for wanting Jeremy Corbyn to acknowledge that violence towards them is a problem. He even went as far to say he knew better than women because he served in the armed forces and single handedly liberated the Falkland Islands from the Argentinians in the early 80’s!
He went on and on making all kinds of assumptions about not just the women whose identities I’ve hidden but also myself too!
I mean to call people including myself ‘Anti-Gay’ for speaking out against Tatchell was simply madness and incorrect. Speaking for myself does the image above make me out to be anti LGBT? Baring in mind I only recently came out of a relationship with a gay man who identifies as a trans woman earlier this year! Assumptions of a straight white man who hate Jeremy Corbyn!
Tatchell’s natural ally ‘Pink News’ tried to support him in hope the readership would turn on Jeremy Corbyn but even that failed. Even the LGB community have had enough of Tatchell and his stunts. Some readers actually liked my comment which can be seen above. I just told it as I saw it!
Those who support Peter Tatchell why can’t they accept that he was wrong for shutting down Jeremy Corbyn for raising the serious about violence towards women? It’s all about male ego and pride isn’t it?
Sadly the Left wing men like their right wing counterparts tend to be misogynistic. Their hatred of women is compelling. From the SWP to Class War they’ve all silenced women who have been victims of rape by party members. They’ve even silenced witnesses too!
My own experiences of defending the former partner of an Anti-Fascist who had not only domestically abused her but he had also raped her too! Despite having court orders backed up by the police and the medical profession other Left wing men and some women didn’t want to know. When I exposed the perpetrator I had emails politely asking me not to expose him. I ignored them so eventually certain people have tried to smear me even to this day. Its fell largely on deaf ears mind you they were told by mutual friends they were bang out of order.
Misogyny on the Left is a serious issue and needs to be addressed as does the wider issue of violence against women bearing in mind they make up half the population of the UK. To be fair it isn’t just a British issue it also happens in other First World countries where women have been silenced.
It needs to stop! These issues need addressing.
I don’t know what else to say apart from making an apology to women everywhere for other Left leaning men thinking with their penises and not engaging their brains. It’s embarrassing.
I am so sorry for their behaviour and actions.
