"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Seven police officers sent to remove four women from 'inclusive' talk on transgender issues featuring CEO of Mermaids - "An academic was forcibly removed by police from a 'transgender visibility' event after organisers complained she made members of a panel discussion ‘feel uncomfortable'... The women were asked to leave after being told they were not welcome at the ‘inclusive’ event at consultancy firm Accenture’s head office in London.The group, which included a journalist, a Labour Party activist and a woman who asked not to be identified for fear of reprisals, refused, telling organisers they had obtained tickets and had not interacted with anyone else in the room... Hours before the event, Surrey Police released a statement saying they were no longer pursuing a case against Caroline Farrow, a Catholic mother of five after Miss Green had complained about tweets she claimed were abusive including the misgendering of her transgender child. Mermaids encourages the reporting of online communication considered to be ‘malicious and nasty’ as hate incidents"
Inclusivity is only for people with the right opinions

Student 'barred from free speech debate for saying women don't have penises’ - "A student who was called transphobic after re-tweeting ‘women don’t have penises’ has been excluded from a free speech debate at Bristol university over ‘security concerns’.Many were unhappy with Angelos Sofocleous after he posted the statement on his social media account last August.The tweet led to him being sacked from his role as president of Humanist Students and assistant editor of Durham University’s philosophy society journal."
"Free speech"

Iain Macwhirter: Get over it - cis women are just on the wrong side of history - "WHEN is a woman not a woman? When she’s being addressed by the Scottish Government. It is now “pejorative” to call a person with a uterus and XX hormones a “biological woman”, according to a spokesperson quoted in The Times. In future, the Government intends to use the term “cis-gender” instead... the Scottish Government appears determined to press ahead with reform of the Gender Recognition Act, which will allow trans people to assign themselves legally and biologically female. Hitherto, trans people have had to undergo medical examination and get a diagnosis of “gender dysphoria”. No more. From now on, anyone can change their birth certificate to whatever they wish. Earlier this month, Holyrood’s culture committee warned that ending binary “Male or Female” questions in the Scottish census will render much of the results meaningless and, willy nilly, import an unscientific definition of sex into the law. But the Scottish Government is not listening. Nicola Sturgeon told a UN equalities conference last week that the concerns of feminists about the GRA are “misplaced”... a British transgender man, who had IVF by sperm donation and gave birth, won a court battle to prevent his child having “mother” on its birth certificate. It will be the first child in history to have no mother. The The AIRE Centre, a human rights charity, contested this on the grounds that it would make life difficult for the child in future, when they apply for visas or anything which enquires about family background. The Government said simply that this isn’t a problem. From now on, fathers can give birth – end of... If misgendering a trans person is unacceptable, surely demothering a child should be too. This is going to be confusing to say the least"

TERF SLAYER — trans people are never rapists - "rape has to do with power. transgender people are the most hated people in the world, therefore they have no power over cis people. so even if a trans person forces a cis person to have sex with them, it’s not rape. cis women can’t be raped by trans women. to suggest they can minimizes the struggles of trans women in society...
im sorry you’re a forced-sex survivor and i wish you the best, but it wasn’t rape. the trans person who forced you to have sex with them is socially below you in terms of power, therefore did not rape you. sending you lots of love and i hope you get better soon "

My [24FtM] girlfriend [25MtF] believes that I don’t have a right to an opinion on an abortion because I am a man - and it’s causing a serious rift in our relationship : relationship_advice - "I am a 24 transman and I am dating a 24 transwoman.I’m sure you all have seen the news that a fucking shitty ass American state just passed an extremely aggressive anti-choice law banning woman from having abortions.My girlfriend and I were discussing it and even though we are both pro-choice and pretty much acknowledge that a fetus is just a clump of cells that hardly constitute life, my girlfriend felt the need to remind me that as a man, I have no say in the matter anyway.She appreciates and thanks me for expressing solidarity with women’s rights but insists that men should have absolutely zero opinion whatsoever on the right to terminate a pregnancy.This really worries me because what if I get pregnant?"
Women who have had hysterectomies aren't allowed to have opinions on abortion. How about infertile women?

Blurred lines: A pregnant man's tragedy tests gender notions - "When the man arrived at the hospital with severe abdominal pains, a nurse didn’t consider it an emergency, noting that he was obese and had stopped taking blood pressure medicines. In reality, he was pregnant — a transgender man in labor that was about to end in a stillbirth.The tragic case, described in Wednesday’s New England Journal of Medicine, points to larger issues about assigning labels or making assumptions in a society increasingly confronting gender variations in sports , entertainment and government . In medicine, there’s a similar danger of missing diseases such as sickle cell and cystic fibrosis that largely affect specific racial groupsBlurred lines: A pregnant man's tragedy tests gender notions - "When the man arrived at the hospital with severe abdominal pains, a nurse didn’t consider it an emergency, noting that he was obese and had stopped taking blood pressure medicines.

Reality is transphobic

Ftm denied maternity leave : asktransgender - "Basically as the title says, my company is only offering me paternity leave since my gender is legally male. Paternity leave is 2 weeks versus 3 months for maternity leave. Is there anything I can do?"

Maria Miller called me a fake feminist over gender self-ID. Now she says I was right all along - "As I wrote when the report was released, Miller dismissed feminist concerns “about the erosion of single-sex provision in, say, rape shelters as ‘extraordinary’ bigotry; the Tory dinosaurs weren’t getting upset about it, after all. An alternative explanation is that those dinosaurs don’t give a tuppenny toss about rape shelters either way”... Mermaids, a group which supported a mother forcing her child to live as a girl against his wishes. (The ruling found: “There was no independent or supportive evidence that J identified as a girl at all, indeed there was a body of material that suggested the contrary.” So Mermaids were, effectively, misgendering the child, something which activists have repeatedly claimed is harmful to the point of provoking suicide.) But no women’s groups were consulted as witnesses. The inquiry did have time to hear from Jess Bradley, a non-binary trans woman suspended from the NUS for posting pictures of male genitalia on her blog, called Exhibitionizm. It is still shocking to me that Miller could be so little versed in feminism that she could sign off a report advising a change to the Equality Act, replacing “gender reassignment” with “gender identity” as a protected characteristic, without realising the profound public policy implications of that change. At a stroke, she advised changing our concept of gender from something that is partially socially constructed – how you are treated – to entirely a matter of internal essence. She entered the realm of metaphysics, asserting that everyone has a gender identity, something which no instrument can measure. That isn’t the kind of thing you can casually toss out in paragraph 4.108 and expect everyone to nod through, unless you have no idea what you’re proposing... I’ve had two tedious years of being abused online as a transphobe and a “TERF” or “trans-exclusionary radical feminist” – despite my belief that trans women are women, and trans men are men – because I have expressed concerns about self-ID and its impact on single-sex spaces"

Germany's third gender law is celebrated as a revolution. But some say it's just the first step - ""The doctors advised my parents not to tell me about my sex and simply raise me as a girl," Lynn told CNN. "And of course, it didn't work -- because I'm not a girl."... Germany will become the first country in the European Union to offer a "third gender" option on birth certificates.Intersex people -- and parents of intersex babies -- will be able to register as "divers," or miscellaneous, on birth certificates, instead of having to choose between male or female.
David Reimer (John Money's John/Joan case) was not the only victim of blank slate ideology

Germany's New Third Gender Option Excludes Trans People, Advocates Say - "LGBT campaigners said the move did not go far enough and called for new laws to make it easier for people who do not identify with the gender they were born to change their sex on official documents... Richard Koehler, a policy advisor for Transgender Europe, said the new category would in theory require “invasive” tests to determine whether a person was intersex.“Those who cannot or do not want to submit themselves to such invasive medicalization will remain excluded and without legal recognition. This is discriminatory,” he said."
In other words, they're upset Germany isn't allowing a free for all. Yet

Bruce Pardy: You have free speech, so long as you think the right thoughts - "the Tribunal found that Whatcott had discriminated against Oger and exposed her to hatred or contempt in violation of section 7 of the Code. He had discriminated because he expressed the view, based on his religious beliefs, that transgenderism is immoral. “To cast a transgender person as immoral purely because of their gender identity,” the Tribunal wrote, “is the very essence of discrimination.” The three-member panel found that Whatcott’s flyer exposed Oger and other transgender people to hatred or contempt because it inhibited the ability of transgender people to “find self‐fulfillment” and meaningfully participate in the democratic process. It did so by expressing, amongst other things, the view that changing gender is not possible, thus “den(ying) the reality of transgender people.” The Tribunal ordered Whatcott to pay $35,000 for injury to Oger’s dignity, feelings and self‐respect as well as $20,000 in costs."

When he was a man called Mark he was locked up after threatening to kill the mother of his child - "Men who identify as women are being allowed to live in refuge hostels for female victims of domestic and sexual violence – even if they have not undergone sex-change treatment but simply say they want to live as a woman, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.The move follows a radical change in policy by charities that receive millions of pounds in public money to run refuges for women fleeing abusive relationships.In one shocking case, The Mail on Sunday discovered that a transgender ex-prisoner and convicted domestic abuser, who made chilling death threats to the mother of his child, has been allowed to come and go from a female-only refuge after he changed his name to Melissa.Mark Addis, 44, was deemed such a threat to his former partner that he spent six months on remand in a male prison in 2014 after sending threats that he would kill her. One of his terrifying messages contained a picture of a dead body in a shroud. A whistleblower has told the MoS that despite knowing about Addis's convictions, bosses at homeless charity St Mungo's still allowed her to make 'almost daily' visits to a women-only hostel... One St Mungo's source claimed Addis had caused 'alarm and distress' to female residents at the women's shelter by behaving aggressively in front of them.But managers at the charity are accused of ignoring concerns from staff because they 'slavishly' followed a politically correct agenda promoting transgender rights"

Shelter forced women to shower with person who identified as a transgender woman and sexually harassed them, lawsuit says - "Nine women homeless women signed on to a lawsuit against Naomi's House and its parent company, the Poverello House, saying the last place they could go to feel safe is now dangerous because they're forced to shower with a transgender woman... the shelter requires them to shower in groups, and it opened its doors to a person who identified themself as a transgender woman who made lewd and sexually inappropriate comments, and leered at them while they were naked... Naomi's House has had good experiences before with at least one transgender woman."The staff was extremely accommodating," said Michelle Nastasis, a transgender professional poker player who stayed at Naomi's House a couple years ago. "In fact, we worked out a system where none of the girls would be offended when I went to take a shower."Nastasis says she got along with some of the women who filed the lawsuit and everybody treated her with respect. She joins them in questioning whether the person accused of sexual harassment is being honest about their status as a transgender woman... The women say they repeatedly complained to staff members, but were told if they didn't respect the person's decision to identify as a woman, and if they refused to take showers at the same time, they'd get kicked out of the shelter."
Too bad most people won't ask if they should discriminate against men in the first place

Forced to share a room with transgender woman in Toronto shelter, sex abuse victim files human rights complaint - "A woman has filed a human rights complaint against a Toronto shelter for female recovering addicts, claiming staff forced her to share a small double room with a pre-operative male-to-female transgender person.The formal complaint against the Jean Tweed Centre, which runs Palmerston House, followed Kristi Hanna’s efforts to inquire about her own legal rights in this unusual situation, only to be told by Ontario’s Human Rights Legal Support Centre that, by describing her new roommate as a “man,” Hanna was the one engaged in illegal discrimination... She described herself as an “active ally in the LGBTQ community,” but said this conflict has left her feeling as if vulnerable women are unable to voice their own gender-based rights for fear of violating someone else’s... the woman is in her late 20s, has facial hair, chest hair, and wears large black combat boots that “trigger” her with their thumping. She said at one communal dinner, the roommate talked about having had a wife in the past, and a pregnant fiancée, and was overheard talking about some unidentified women as “hot” and expressing her preference for Latina women. Hanna said her mannerisms came across as “piggish” and inappropriate... Hanna said she told staff this person made her feel vulnerable and scared, a view she shared with other residents, some of whom signed a petition to staff.“All of us were completely upset and flabbergasted, pretty much, and instantly all full of fear. They won’t even allow a man on the property without permission by the staff and all the residents"

Predator who claimed to be transgender declared dangerous offender - "A sexual predator who falsely claimed to be transgender and preyed on women at two Toronto shelters was jailed indefinitely on Wednesday.Justice John McMahon declared Christopher Hambrook — who claimed to be a transgender woman named Jessica — was a dangerous offender... the Montreal man, 37, attacked four vulnerable females between the ages of five and 53 in Montreal and Toronto over the past 12 years... Hambrook pleaded guilty in February 2013 to two counts of sexual assault and one count of criminal harassment involving two women — a deaf and homeless Quebec woman and a Toronto survivor of domestic violence — while he was living at a Dundas St. W. shelter and the Fred Victor women’s shelter in January and February 2012... He couldn’t control his deviant urges, inside or outside of jail, sharing his sick sexual fantasies and irritating other inmates during a four-year prison sentence served in Quebec and Kingston.After moving to Toronto in 2009, he boasted that he had received more than 800 e-mails from old Montreal friends “begging him to come home” for sex and shopping sprees."
Apparently the staff at the shelter weren't aware of the infallible way to tell who is really transgender and who is just pretending to be transgender
Or this is just another case of Schrodinger's transsexual - you're one until you commit a sex crime under those pretenses
