Why This Tranny Is Against The Change In The Gender Recognition Act!

To begin with I was not going to write another blog. I had written about my experiences of being trans and what I had learned along that journey and how I become a better person through it! What many trans women in the UK were complaining about certainly weren’t my experiences. I believe many trans women in the UK were just going along with the rest of the internet crowd. I really had nothing more to say.

That is until now……

The Tories want to review the 2004 Gender Recognition Act. In doing so this would be a blatant attack on 50% of the British population. It would be an attack on every woman and girl in the UK.

This leaflet explains why:

Trans activists would have you believe this is an anti-trans leaflet but reality is women are fearing for the erosion of their rights and rightfully so.

At the recent Anarchist book fair in London radical feminists were threatened / abused for handing out said leaflet. Yet there’s nothing in that leaflet that I would consider offensive. Women have every right to have their say but prominent activists such as Helen Steel have been considered transphobic and therefore public enemy No 1. Yet the reality is women like Helen Steel are far from transphobic.

As a person on the trans spectrum living in the UK very publically it isn’t the act that needs to be changed. What needs to be changed is how the 2004 act is policed. I know there’s an issue with employment for example. Yet the Government are doing very little to ensure this act is adhered to by employers. That needs to change. Let’s face it everyone should be entitled to make a living / carve a career for themselves without the fear of discrimination and that should include the trans community in there.

Instead of reviewing the act the Government need to bring in an act to erase male violence including those violent acts from men transitioning. Violence towards women and girls is on the increase and very little is being done by the Government to protect 50% of the population. This needs to change.

There are more and more cases where men identifying as women are committing violent and sexual acts in the UK and yet women are expected to open their spaces to them etc. That is a disgrace. When these men transitioning commit such acts its male violence from their conditioning. This a very real issue. Well it is for many including myself.

Here’s my story regards sexual assaults on myself by those considered trans women.

The first assault came about shortly after coming out as trans. I went for a punk rock look after all that is the scene I have been part of since the age of 12. I went to a trans meeting and it was very sexualised from the start. I wasn’t too comfortable with that but I stayed anyway. While standing at the bar waiting to be served my skirt was quickly lifted and a hand slipped in my panties. I responded very quickly and the perpetrator left very shocked. The other trans folk all looked at me as if I was some kind of nutter and blamed me for wearing what they considered provocative clothing!

The second time I was at my local shopping centre talking to my friend’s 80 yr old mum. We were chatting away and this weirdo in a wig came up to me and put his hand up my skirt demanding to know what underwear I had on! I mean this was madness as I couldn’t respond in the manner I wanted since my friend’s mum was there. The perpetrator in this instance was later banned from the shopping centre by a court order for sexually harassing teenage girls in school uniform.

The third time was in Birmingham on a hot summer’s day. Not wearing that much I felt a hand touch my bum and as I turned this person identifying as a trans woman thought that was appropriate behaviour!

These sexual assaults were in public places. In two cases very public places!

I was able to brush all three incidents off and they haven’t affected my life but on a different day with different people it could leave them traumatised.

Now with what I have just written here would you really allow these people into spaces where women and girls are who could be in the state of undress like a changing room etc?

Allowing this gender recognition bill to be changed to how trans advocates want it will see women women and girls thrown under the bus. Everything that has been fought for will just vanish simply to please just 1% of the UK population.

Call me a TERF – In fact call me what you want I’m just telling you how it is.

It will be mainly lefties, anarchists etc who read these words. Why on earth do you oppose the Tories on everything they do then side with them in regards the Gender Recognition Act? Think about it for a minute before answering……

As I’m someone on the trans spectrum I oppose this change in the act and ask the Government, Stonewall, Trans Advocates and all their supporters to listen to radical feminists and come up with something that protects us all.

Thank You!
