Terpsichore Maras-Lindeman #wingnut #conspiracy #crackpot #mammon rawstory.com

A QAnon adherent who claims she can time travel is whipping up her thousands of followers to carry out a plot to oust elected officials in the U.S. and replace them with QAnon followers, VICE News reports.

After months of building a network of groups in all 50 states, Terpsichore Maras-Lindeman promised her followers that "retribution is coming for what she says was the stolen 2020 election. She also claims Donald Trump will be reinstated into office.

While growing her subscriber base on Twitch, Maras-Lindeman, who streams under the name Tore Says, has raked in tens of thousands of dollars, even convincing her subscriber base to donate over $80,000, so she could buy a new Tesla.

"Maras-Lindeman is part of a growing ecosystem of grifters and hucksters who are leveraging the widespread belief that Trump's election loss was somehow orchestrated by shadowy figures and companies tied to the Democrats," VICE News reports. "This so-called 'Big Lie' has taken hold within the mainstream Republican Party, and fringe figures like Maras-Lindeman have succeeded in carving out a niche that's proving to be highly lucrative."

9/11 has been funny for a long time. the vast difference between the government telling you that you should cry about a couple thousand americans dying for 20 years as if it’s the biggest tragedy in human history and as if they actually care about human life and then proceeding to show a sociopathic disregard for human life at best and insatiable bloodthirst at worst cannot be squared away.

9/11 isn’t about human beings dying. the reason why the government shoves it in our face every single year and tells us to care is because of what they want it to represent, which is an attack on “america”, and they want to use that to justify wholesale slaughter of innocents overseas and perpetual imperial empire. 9/11 is a quasi-fascist myth about national trauma.

and now we live in a pandemic, where the same number of people who died on 9/11 die every single day because of the negligence and greed of the very same government who tells us to cry about it, and there is no reconciliation. no attempt made to explain this. there is an active movement to downplay it or to redirect blame to china, once again fueling our imperial ambitions.

so it is safe to say now that 9/11 is a fucking farce. I don’t even know how they’re going to be able to sell that narrative anymore because they’ve completely shown their ass. you officially have permission from the government to never ever have to give a shit about 9/11 ever again. enjoy.

You will never be a real woman. You have no womb, you have no ovaries, you have no eggs. You are a homosexual man twisted by drugs and surgery into a crude mockery of nature’s perfection.

All the “validation” you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock you. Your parents are disgusted and ashamed of you, your “friends” laugh at your ghoulish appearance behind closed doors.

Men are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed men to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even trannies who “pass” look uncanny and unnatural to a man. Your bone structure is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a drunk guy home with you, he’ll turn tail and bolt the second he gets a whiff of your diseased, infected axe wound.

You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.

Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. Your parents will find you, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They’ll bury you with a headstone marked with your birth name, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a man is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a skeleton that is unmistakably male.

This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.

No one deserves to be raped. It's an awful experience nobody should have to go through. And I'm not saying any of it is your fault at all... but maybe don't dress like a slutty nurse? We can't fight against rape culture by sexualizing everything. It's getting worse, and if you want to actually change things you have to start with yourself.

I enjoy it when people lose their child/son/daughter dies.

This joy is in no way sexual. But watching parents suffer in their own self loathing after anything from miss carriage to an accident or even older som/daughter deaths, such as military or illness really brightens my day. On one hand im sad if the kids older (13+) because maybe they were cool or had dreams or something. But watching people be so insanely distraught over the loss of their barely human infant is just the best thing to me. I genuinely, genuinely could not care less for a child and i dont see their worth in the world whatso ever. And their stupid social media “angel baby” posts damn near make me bust laughing at their attention grabbing, especially their howling of what “could have been”

Of course, when i interact with a child im nice, unfortunately their suffering is collateral damage in my enjoyment.

Stop forcing people to accept LGPT and feminism. (Rant)

I'm tired of being labeled a pigot if I think that a guy that cuts off his balls and dick or a girl that cuts off her breasts and womb are mentally ill.

I'm tired of being labeled a bigot if I reject toxic female behavior, or speak against it.

I'm tired of being forced to work with incompetent female workers just in the name of equality.

I'm tired of a society that ignores females abusers, or when men finally defend themselves or lash out against female abusers, they are instantly punished without any investigations about what caused it.

I'm tired of politicians that are using these issues to their advantage instead of focusing on what is right or wrong.

I'm tired of academics not being able to speak up their minds, afraid of losing their jobs or funding.

The Rantings of a Madman #elitist #wingnut youtube.com

No mommy state yet "social safety net".... You realize this is the same thing right? It's like saying a car is different than a sedan... nah pretty much the same thing. You can split hairs all day, but it's basically the same thing just different specifics.

How about none of that thank you. I've had to work my entire adult life to not have to be a part of any of these programs because where I am from it's shameful to be reliant on these systems, and I know many who can't function without them. The fault most of the time I see it, is on two things. 1 the government takes too much from them making them have to get on these programs where they otherwise wouldn't have to. or 2 They have no budgeting skills and waste way more than they should. In the first case I pity them and call for the government to steal less from us all. In the second I am loud and adamant that I shouldn't have money stolen from me to fund them when they are at fault. Of the people I know on food stamps about 7 out of 10 of them fall into the second category, so the majority by far. I've tried to help a few and always been met with, you don't know what it is like..... I lived off of minimum wage had a home, had food, had a car, and had enough to live on, I also smoked a pack a day and had enough to smoke weed every single day. This was off of a $7.25 minimum wage. How? Why? It's called a budget and it is basic life skill oh SO MANY lack. They buy what they do not need then expect the tax payer to fund their needs when they have wasted money that could've gone to it, while the average working person gets enough money taken out in taxes each month to pay for everything they would eat in that month. I'm more than willing to have a talk about getting that 3 out of 10 the help they need, but those other 7 can go fuck themselves and starve in a ditch because they are leeches surviving off of my hard work and the generosity of big government who is basically buying their votes with my money.

The old school gays are fine...being in the media industry I've worked with dozens of the mincy queens. One time I was the only heterosexual working at a radio station in Europe which meant I got to fuck all the cute young female interns who came in on work experience 🥳

Last time I met him for beers and food I moved my chair away from him just to eat my meal when he asked why, I said: "cos I don't want you spitting in my food you AIDS infected cunt." 😂

He looked pretty upset but he knows what I'm like and it's not like I spurned him once I found out he was

a) Gay (he was closeted for around 10 years of me knowing him)

b) HIV positive

@Senior Lexmechanic

Some of these centers were run like prison camps and had conditions that legitimately violated human rights TMK; shit like starving autists who refused to "act normally" or forcing them to sleep on concrete floors. Also, I think it had ties to the Scientologists, which would explain all the above. If I'm wrong and I'm thinking about a different scandal, please correct me.

I see a lot of on verified reports on that from blog sites, nothing else. All written by autists. Currently, it just reads like biased trash.
@Lord of the Large Pants

Autism Speaks had previously caught shit for being anti-vax, though they've since reversed their position and distanced themselves from that crowd. But I think in this case it's because some autism advocacy organizations are in favor of "cure" for autism, whatever that might mean in practice. Some 'tists get pretty uppity about it, in the same way that certain segment of deaf people do about cures for deafness.

I'm all for putting black triangles on their shirts and rounding them up. Also round up arbeitsscheu to go with them.

Del. John Mcguire is speaking against legalization of marijuana. He said he had 7-8 people cry in his arms when he knocked their door. He said they were crying because their child overdosed. I have strong doubts that these people’s kids OD’d on weed.

Del. McGuire is right. We have a drug problem in Virginia, and legalizing marijuana will only lead to more marijuana overdoses and deaths. Democrats want more marijuana deaths. As your governor I would never allow marijuana to be legalized.

There one thing i know for sure: when i am enforced to love smth i start hating it.

Exactly. When people say that you have to think a certain way or else you're a bigot or transphobe or whatever the fuck, it makes me hate them. We have a saying among American conservatives "Don't Tread of Me", which was used in the 18th when the British were causing problems.

I hate SJWs. I'd rather live in a world of Nazis instead of SJWs at this point. Yes, Nazi ideology is garbage, but at least they are genuine unlike SJWs, who are virtue signalers.

disconnecty #ableism reddit.com

something i find odd or interesting is that a great deal of furries are autistic.

I'm a digital artist and interact with the furry community often and like 95% are lgbtq+ and or autistic

...makes me consider the correlation

idk just something i noticed

I feel like it's halfway "child friendly," in the sense autistic people are childlike and porn may be too real for them. And this next bit might be a bad take and false, but I think it also has to do with them lacking cues for degeneracy. Most normal people would think dressing up in Nintendo merch and a fursuit while jerking it to Bowser eating Sonic is not good or normal, but autistic people see pretty colors and operate in a different reality than non mentally ill people. That's why you see autistic people being actually quite hateful towards other groups, they lack the ability to emphasize with other races or non normal people.

But I don't know why furries have a lot of gay people. I think it's a mix of people seeing gays as deviants and then pursuing that as well as being an extremely open community. Y'all are weirdos, but at least you are friendly.

Teah Vincent #pedo the-sun.com

A MUM cleared over sex with a 14-year-old boy today said she wants to see HIM punished - but insisted: "I'm not evil" in an online rant.

Teah Vincent, 32, last week admitted to initiating sex with the teen at her Gloucestershire home - believing he was over 16.

She was last week found not guilty of knowingly having sex with an under-age boy after just one hour and four minutes of jury deliberation.

And one social media user told the mum she was "pretty lucky" to have avoided jail.

Replying on Instagram, Teah replied: "I do count myself lucky.

"I hope his family get karma."

She added a crying face emoji, writing: "I'm not an evil person but what this is doing to my family."

It comes after the mum-of-three said she was considering selling photos and videos through saucy subscription site OnlyFans.com.

In an Instagram video, she tells followers: "I’m thinking about doing an OnlyFans account.

"People already hate me, so not much to lose."

If Teah opens an account, she'll join famous faces including Chloe Madeley and her rugby star hubby James Haskell, Love Islanders Arabella Chi and Adam Collard and musician Cardi B on the site.

OnlyFans, which has around 80million users, allows adult performers to charge subscribers to see their videos.

Teah's home when she invited them in for a drink.

Teah was then accused of taking one of the teens upstairs where she stripped off and they had sex.

She later said she was "sure" he had told her he was 16 and "looked much older".

Teah burst into a flood of tears after jurors cleared her at Gloucester Crown Court.

And Teah earlier told The Sun Online she was "embarrassed" by the ordeal and now wants to focus on the future.

Teah told The Sun Online: "This has wrecked my life.

“It’s also wrecked any chance I would have had of a career. I’m too embarrassed now to do anything.

“I feel hot-headed and emotional.

“I just want to put all my energy now into my children and look after them."

What is with the universal bisexuality circlejerk?

"#Biweek". What the fuck? They have a month to talk about how horny they are. Why do they get a ton of publicity? And why do they always get more attention than their fellow degens-in-arms? Gays and lesbians stay quiet (thank god) while bisexuals are always vocal. At best, it's teenagers being too hormonal. It shouldn't be encourage lest they fuck up, get groomed, and live unhappily.

AITA for expecting my daughter to do chores?

I (50M) lost my wife ten years ago. It’s just me and my two kids N (17M) and E (F15), recently it caused a big stink with some family that my daughter does chores, but my son does not. I explained it’s because I have to spend extra on my daughter each month not only for her extra curriculars, but for her monthly supplies, so it‘s my way of having her pay me back. She cleans the shared living spaces and bathrooms in our apartment and cooks four meals a week. My brother said I spend twice as much on my sons extra curriculars and by my logic, he should have to do chores too. I explained he didn’t because I feel his could help him get into college but hers were just a hobby in my opinion.

E overheard me say this and was very upset. She started refusing to do chores because it isn’t fair. I told her she’d still be doing her chores and life isn’t fair so stop being a brat, or I’d refuse to pay for her extra curricular stuff or pads. I wouldn’t actually do that, but I was mad when I said it. She packed a bag and took off. She’s been staying with my sister who called me an abusive asshole when I demanded she send E home. My brother and sister are coddling her and I’m furious. N said I was being an asshole to E and that’s why she left. I’m completely fed up with the whole thing. AITA for expecting her to do chores?

ETA: My son plays Football and Baseball while you daughter is in choir and a dance group, so yes I do think my son has a better chance at getting a scholarship. I’m not sexist and I don’t appreciate being called one, and for those of you messaging me saying you hope someone calls CPS on me, I’m not doing anything wrong so that’s just stupid.

BitcoinIsFemale #racist #wingnut reddit.com

The problem is that Blacks don't know how to work, and definitely don't know how to work hard.

And I don't mean being lazy (though the two often go hand in hand), I mean they LITERALLY do not know "how to work".

This is why they cannot access any of the wealth that this country has to offer to everyone who is here, INCLUDING illegal immigrants who take full advantage of the economic mobility. This is why you have some Indian or Chinese peasant becoming a millionaire or multi-millionaire within the first generation of being here. This is also why you don't see Mexicans or South Americans complaining about "muh inequality"... because they know full well how fucking amazing it is to live in America and take part in our opportunities, even if they are illegal. It's pretty much incontestable that America has and still does provide the greatest economic mobility the world has ever seen. And yes, I have lived in multiple countries, grew up in semi-rural America and have lived in SF for 9 years, so while I don't have a perfect grasp, no one does, I have seen much of the world and how it works and I'd welcome anyone to challenge me on my assertion about economic mobility in America.

Before I continue, I don't hate Black people. Very few people "hate" black people, many may say they do but what they actually hate is the problems that blacks cause. BIG difference. So let's try to figure out what the fuck is black people's problem.

My theory is that they literally don't know how to work hard or even work at all. "Working" doesn't mean just physical labor or typing things into a spreadsheet. It also means working together with others in a civilized and professional manner that facilitates common goals of providing goods and services to society.

Hence why when a black person thinks it's ok to wear a "BLM" hat to work at Starbucks, self-overriding the corporate policy of having to wear a specific uniform, they are demonstrating that they don't know how to work and also demonstrating "anti-work" behavior. They don't even have a basic understanding of how to hold a job and sustain themselves, hence generational welfare, etc.

Call them lazy, call them stupid, whatever, I don't think that's the issue at all. Black culture (mostly entertainment, which targets the youth) promotes being shitty and stupid, as well as violence, immorality, and the carefree use of drugs. This isn't helping them. We probably all know this here, but during segregation the average black family did FAR BETTER than they did now. I believe the main reason is that they had to work together to survive and the concept of "working" had not been beaten out of them by a combination of democratic policies and "entertainment" aka hypnosis.

We have a real fucking problem in America right now, and it's not police brutality. It's that for whatever reason, blacks are anti-social, anti-work, cannot get ahead because of it, and starting to freak out.

The emotions they are feeling are very real, the reasons for them feeing that way are being manipulated for, most likely, nefarious reasons.

Even if the blacks get what they want with this quasi-revolution, they will not be happy because none of the actual concerns plaguing them as a demographic are being addressed

Freddie Lee Doyle #homophobia #psycho lgbtqnation.com

Man brought an AR-15 to a gay bar & shouted that he would “have killed those fa***ts”

A man who went to an LGBTQ bar in Missouri with an AR-15 and 160 rounds has been sentenced to 46 months in prison.

Freddie Lee Doyle, 32, pled guilty to a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm in federal court in exchange for prosecutors dropping hate crimes charges.

[…]

Video footage showed Doyle talking to a Black man who left the Just John Night Club, another LGBTQ venue in the neighborhood. The two went back to Doyle’s car, where Doyle pointed the rifle at his victim.

The man ran and Doyle went after him with the gun. Witnesses said that he pointed the weapon at the victim, then shouted obscenities and anti-gay slurs at the crowd. He started a “verbal countdown” and fired one shot in the air when he finished.

Police nearby heard the shot, but Doyle hid his gun and said that the shooter ran into a nearby alley. Police soon arrested him.

Court documents say that he shouted that he would “have killed those faggots” if police hadn’t shown up, according to Metro Weekly.

Doyle’s lawyer originally argued that he was not motivated by hatred of LGBTQ people but that he was acting in self-defense when the Black man “followed” him into his car.

Doyle later told the court that he was suffering from depression and anxiety and has ADHD. He said that he used to be a husband and a father, but then he lost his job, house, cars, and family and turned to methamphetamine. He tested positive for meth after his arrest.

J.K. Rowling #transphobia jkrowling.com

This isn’t an easy piece to write, for reasons that will shortly become clear, but I know it’s time to explain myself on an issue surrounded by toxicity. I write this without any desire to add to that toxicity.

For people who don’t know: last December I tweeted my support for Maya Forstater, a tax specialist who’d lost her job for what were deemed ‘transphobic’ tweets. She took her case to an employment tribunal, asking the judge to rule on whether a philosophical belief that sex is determined by biology is protected in law. Judge Tayler ruled that it wasn’t.

My interest in trans issues pre-dated Maya’s case by almost two years, during which I followed the debate around the concept of gender identity closely. I’ve met trans people, and read sundry books, blogs and articles by trans people, gender specialists, intersex people, psychologists, safeguarding experts, social workers and doctors, and followed the discourse online and in traditional media. On one level, my interest in this issue has been professional, because I’m writing a crime series, set in the present day, and my fictional female detective is of an age to be interested in, and affected by, these issues herself, but on another, it’s intensely personal, as I’m about to explain.

All the time I’ve been researching and learning, accusations and threats from trans activists have been bubbling in my Twitter timeline. This was initially triggered by a ‘like’. When I started taking an interest in gender identity and transgender matters, I began screenshotting comments that interested me, as a way of reminding myself what I might want to research later. On one occasion, I absent-mindedly ‘liked’ instead of screenshotting. That single ‘like’ was deemed evidence of wrongthink, and a persistent low level of harassment began.

Months later, I compounded my accidental ‘like’ crime by following Magdalen Burns on Twitter. Magdalen was an immensely brave young feminist and lesbian who was dying of an aggressive brain tumour. I followed her because I wanted to contact her directly, which I succeeded in doing. However, as Magdalen was a great believer in the importance of biological sex, and didn’t believe lesbians should be called bigots for not dating trans women with penises, dots were joined in the heads of twitter trans activists, and the level of social media abuse increased.

I mention all this only to explain that I knew perfectly well what was going to happen when I supported Maya. I must have been on my fourth or fifth cancellation by then. I expected the threats of violence, to be told I was literally killing trans people with my hate, to be called cunt and bitch and, of course, for my books to be burned, although one particularly abusive man told me he’d composted them.

What I didn’t expect in the aftermath of my cancellation was the avalanche of emails and letters that came showering down upon me, the overwhelming majority of which were positive, grateful and supportive. They came from a cross-section of kind, empathetic and intelligent people, some of them working in fields dealing with gender dysphoria and trans people, who’re all deeply concerned about the way a socio-political concept is influencing politics, medical practice and safeguarding. They’re worried about the dangers to young people, gay people and about the erosion of women’s and girl’s rights. Above all, they’re worried about a climate of fear that serves nobody – least of all trans youth – well.

I’d stepped back from Twitter for many months both before and after tweeting support for Maya, because I knew it was doing nothing good for my mental health. I only returned because I wanted to share a free children’s book during the pandemic. Immediately, activists who clearly believe themselves to be good, kind and progressive people swarmed back into my timeline, assuming a right to police my speech, accuse me of hatred, call me misogynistic slurs and, above all – as every woman involved in this debate will know – TERF.

If you didn’t already know – and why should you? – ‘TERF’ is an acronym coined by trans activists, which stands for Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist. In practice, a huge and diverse cross-section of women are currently being called TERFs and the vast majority have never been radical feminists. Examples of so-called TERFs range from the mother of a gay child who was afraid their child wanted to transition to escape homophobic bullying, to a hitherto totally unfeminist older lady who’s vowed never to visit Marks & Spencer again because they’re allowing any man who says they identify as a woman into the women’s changing rooms. Ironically, radical feminists aren’t even trans-exclusionary – they include trans men in their feminism, because they were born women.

But accusations of TERFery have been sufficient to intimidate many people, institutions and organisations I once admired, who’re cowering before the tactics of the playground. ‘They’ll call us transphobic!’ ‘They’ll say I hate trans people!’ What next, they’ll say you’ve got fleas? Speaking as a biological woman, a lot of people in positions of power really need to grow a pair (which is doubtless literally possible, according to the kind of people who argue that clownfish prove humans aren’t a dimorphic species).

So why am I doing this? Why speak up? Why not quietly do my research and keep my head down?

Well, I’ve got five reasons for being worried about the new trans activism, and deciding I need to speak up.

Firstly, I have a charitable trust that focuses on alleviating social deprivation in Scotland, with a particular emphasis on women and children. Among other things, my trust supports projects for female prisoners and for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. I also fund medical research into MS, a disease that behaves very differently in men and women. It’s been clear to me for a while that the new trans activism is having (or is likely to have, if all its demands are met) a significant impact on many of the causes I support, because it’s pushing to erode the legal definition of sex and replace it with gender.

The second reason is that I’m an ex-teacher and the founder of a children’s charity, which gives me an interest in both education and safeguarding. Like many others, I have deep concerns about the effect the trans rights movement is having on both.

The third is that, as a much-banned author, I’m interested in freedom of speech and have publicly defended it, even unto Donald Trump.

The fourth is where things start to get truly personal. I’m concerned about the huge explosion in young women wishing to transition and also about the increasing numbers who seem to be detransitioning (returning to their original sex), because they regret taking steps that have, in some cases, altered their bodies irrevocably, and taken away their fertility. Some say they decided to transition after realising they were same-sex attracted, and that transitioning was partly driven by homophobia, either in society or in their families.

Most people probably aren’t aware – I certainly wasn’t, until I started researching this issue properly – that ten years ago, the majority of people wanting to transition to the opposite sex were male. That ratio has now reversed. The UK has experienced a 4400% increase in girls being referred for transitioning treatment. Autistic girls are hugely overrepresented in their numbers.

The same phenomenon has been seen in the US. In 2018, American physician and researcher Lisa Littman set out to explore it. In an interview, she said:

‘Parents online were describing a very unusual pattern of transgender-identification where multiple friends and even entire friend groups became transgender-identified at the same time. I would have been remiss had I not considered social contagion and peer influences as potential factors.’

Littman mentioned Tumblr, Reddit, Instagram and YouTube as contributing factors to Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria, where she believes that in the realm of transgender identification ‘youth have created particularly insular echo chambers.’

Her paper caused a furore. She was accused of bias and of spreading misinformation about transgender people, subjected to a tsunami of abuse and a concerted campaign to discredit both her and her work. The journal took the paper offline and re-reviewed it before republishing it. However, her career took a similar hit to that suffered by Maya Forstater. Lisa Littman had dared challenge one of the central tenets of trans activism, which is that a person’s gender identity is innate, like sexual orientation. Nobody, the activists insisted, could ever be persuaded into being trans.

The argument of many current trans activists is that if you don’t let a gender dysphoric teenager transition, they will kill themselves. In an article explaining why he resigned from the Tavistock (an NHS gender clinic in England) psychiatrist Marcus Evans stated that claims that children will kill themselves if not permitted to transition do not ‘align substantially with any robust data or studies in this area. Nor do they align with the cases I have encountered over decades as a psychotherapist.’

The writings of young trans men reveal a group of notably sensitive and clever people. The more of their accounts of gender dysphoria I’ve read, with their insightful descriptions of anxiety, dissociation, eating disorders, self-harm and self-hatred, the more I’ve wondered whether, if I’d been born 30 years later, I too might have tried to transition. The allure of escaping womanhood would have been huge. I struggled with severe OCD as a teenager. If I’d found community and sympathy online that I couldn’t find in my immediate environment, I believe I could have been persuaded to turn myself into the son my father had openly said he’d have preferred.

When I read about the theory of gender identity, I remember how mentally sexless I felt in youth. I remember Colette’s description of herself as a ‘mental hermaphrodite’ and Simone de Beauvoir’s words: ‘It is perfectly natural for the future woman to feel indignant at the limitations posed upon her by her sex. The real question is not why she should reject them: the problem is rather to understand why she accepts them.’

As I didn’t have a realistic possibility of becoming a man back in the 1980s, it had to be books and music that got me through both my mental health issues and the sexualised scrutiny and judgement that sets so many girls to war against their bodies in their teens. Fortunately for me, I found my own sense of otherness, and my ambivalence about being a woman, reflected in the work of female writers and musicians who reassured me that, in spite of everything a sexist world tries to throw at the female-bodied, it’s fine not to feel pink, frilly and compliant inside your own head; it’s OK to feel confused, dark, both sexual and non-sexual, unsure of what or who you are.

I want to be very clear here: I know transition will be a solution for some gender dysphoric people, although I’m also aware through extensive research that studies have consistently shown that between 60-90% of gender dysphoric teens will grow out of their dysphoria. Again and again I’ve been told to ‘just meet some trans people.’ I have: in addition to a few younger people, who were all adorable, I happen to know a self-described transsexual woman who’s older than I am and wonderful. Although she’s open about her past as a gay man, I’ve always found it hard to think of her as anything other than a woman, and I believe (and certainly hope) she’s completely happy to have transitioned. Being older, though, she went through a long and rigorous process of evaluation, psychotherapy and staged transformation. The current explosion of trans activism is urging a removal of almost all the robust systems through which candidates for sex reassignment were once required to pass. A man who intends to have no surgery and take no hormones may now secure himself a Gender Recognition Certificate and be a woman in the sight of the law. Many people aren’t aware of this.

We’re living through the most misogynistic period I’ve experienced. Back in the 80s, I imagined that my future daughters, should I have any, would have it far better than I ever did, but between the backlash against feminism and a porn-saturated online culture, I believe things have got significantly worse for girls. Never have I seen women denigrated and dehumanised to the extent they are now. From the leader of the free world’s long history of sexual assault accusations and his proud boast of ‘grabbing them by the pussy’, to the incel (‘involuntarily celibate’) movement that rages against women who won’t give them sex, to the trans activists who declare that TERFs need punching and re-educating, men across the political spectrum seem to agree: women are asking for trouble. Everywhere, women are being told to shut up and sit down, or else.

I’ve read all the arguments about femaleness not residing in the sexed body, and the assertions that biological women don’t have common experiences, and I find them, too, deeply misogynistic and regressive. It’s also clear that one of the objectives of denying the importance of sex is to erode what some seem to see as the cruelly segregationist idea of women having their own biological realities or – just as threatening – unifying realities that make them a cohesive political class. The hundreds of emails I’ve received in the last few days prove this erosion concerns many others just as much. It isn’t enough for women to be trans allies. Women must accept and admit that there is no material difference between trans women and themselves.

But, as many women have said before me, ‘woman’ is not a costume. ‘Woman’ is not an idea in a man’s head. ‘Woman’ is not a pink brain, a liking for Jimmy Choos or any of the other sexist ideas now somehow touted as progressive. Moreover, the ‘inclusive’ language that calls female people ‘menstruators’ and ‘people with vulvas’ strikes many women as dehumanising and demeaning. I understand why trans activists consider this language to be appropriate and kind, but for those of us who’ve had degrading slurs spat at us by violent men, it’s not neutral, it’s hostile and alienating.

Which brings me to the fifth reason I’m deeply concerned about the consequences of the current trans activism.

I’ve been in the public eye now for over twenty years and have never talked publicly about being a domestic abuse and sexual assault survivor. This isn’t because I’m ashamed those things happened to me, but because they’re traumatic to revisit and remember. I also feel protective of my daughter from my first marriage. I didn’t want to claim sole ownership of a story that belongs to her, too. However, a short while ago, I asked her how she’d feel if I were publicly honest about that part of my life, and she encouraged me to go ahead.

I’m mentioning these things now not in an attempt to garner sympathy, but out of solidarity with the huge numbers of women who have histories like mine, who’ve been slurred as bigots for having concerns around single-sex spaces.

I managed to escape my first violent marriage with some difficulty, but I’m now married to a truly good and principled man, safe and secure in ways I never in a million years expected to be. However, the scars left by violence and sexual assault don’t disappear, no matter how loved you are, and no matter how much money you’ve made. My perennial jumpiness is a family joke – and even I know it’s funny – but I pray my daughters never have the same reasons I do for hating sudden loud noises, or finding people behind me when I haven’t heard them approaching.

If you could come inside my head and understand what I feel when I read about a trans woman dying at the hands of a violent man, you’d find solidarity and kinship. I have a visceral sense of the terror in which those trans women will have spent their last seconds on earth, because I too have known moments of blind fear when I realised that the only thing keeping me alive was the shaky self-restraint of my attacker.

I believe the majority of trans-identified people not only pose zero threat to others, but are vulnerable for all the reasons I’ve outlined. Trans people need and deserve protection. Like women, they’re most likely to be killed by sexual partners. Trans women who work in the sex industry, particularly trans women of colour, are at particular risk. Like every other domestic abuse and sexual assault survivor I know, I feel nothing but empathy and solidarity with trans women who’ve been abused by men.

So I want trans women to be safe. At the same time, I do not want to make natal girls and women less safe. When you throw open the doors of bathrooms and changing rooms to any man who believes or feels he’s a woman – and, as I’ve said, gender confirmation certificates may now be granted without any need for surgery or hormones – then you open the door to any and all men who wish to come inside. That is the simple truth.

On Saturday morning, I read that the Scottish government is proceeding with its controversial gender recognition plans, which will in effect mean that all a man needs to ‘become a woman’ is to say he’s one. To use a very contemporary word, I was ‘triggered’. Ground down by the relentless attacks from trans activists on social media, when I was only there to give children feedback about pictures they’d drawn for my book under lockdown, I spent much of Saturday in a very dark place inside my head, as memories of a serious sexual assault I suffered in my twenties recurred on a loop. That assault happened at a time and in a space where I was vulnerable, and a man capitalised on an opportunity. I couldn’t shut out those memories and I was finding it hard to contain my anger and disappointment about the way I believe my government is playing fast and loose with womens and girls’ safety.

Late on Saturday evening, scrolling through children’s pictures before I went to bed, I forgot the first rule of Twitter – never, ever expect a nuanced conversation – and reacted to what I felt was degrading language about women. I spoke up about the importance of sex and have been paying the price ever since. I was transphobic, I was a cunt, a bitch, a TERF, I deserved cancelling, punching and death. You are Voldemort said one person, clearly feeling this was the only language I’d understand.

It would be so much easier to tweet the approved hashtags – because of course trans rights are human rights and of course trans lives matter – scoop up the woke cookies and bask in a virtue-signalling afterglow. There’s joy, relief and safety in conformity. As Simone de Beauvoir also wrote, “… without a doubt it is more comfortable to endure blind bondage than to work for one’s liberation; the dead, too, are better suited to the earth than the living.”

Huge numbers of women are justifiably terrified by the trans activists; I know this because so many have got in touch with me to tell their stories. They’re afraid of doxxing, of losing their jobs or their livelihoods, and of violence.

But endlessly unpleasant as its constant targeting of me has been, I refuse to bow down to a movement that I believe is doing demonstrable harm in seeking to erode ‘woman’ as a political and biological class and offering cover to predators like few before it. I stand alongside the brave women and men, gay, straight and trans, who’re standing up for freedom of speech and thought, and for the rights and safety of some of the most vulnerable in our society: young gay kids, fragile teenagers, and women who’re reliant on and wish to retain their single sex spaces. Polls show those women are in the vast majority, and exclude only those privileged or lucky enough never to have come up against male violence or sexual assault, and who’ve never troubled to educate themselves on how prevalent it is.

The one thing that gives me hope is that the women who can protest and organise, are doing so, and they have some truly decent men and trans people alongside them. Political parties seeking to appease the loudest voices in this debate are ignoring women’s concerns at their peril. In the UK, women are reaching out to each other across party lines, concerned about the erosion of their hard-won rights and widespread intimidation. None of the gender critical women I’ve talked to hates trans people; on the contrary. Many of them became interested in this issue in the first place out of concern for trans youth, and they’re hugely sympathetic towards trans adults who simply want to live their lives, but who’re facing a backlash for a brand of activism they don’t endorse. The supreme irony is that the attempt to silence women with the word ‘TERF’ may have pushed more young women towards radical feminism than the movement’s seen in decades.

The last thing I want to say is this. I haven’t written this essay in the hope that anybody will get out a violin for me, not even a teeny-weeny one. I’m extraordinarily fortunate; I’m a survivor, certainly not a victim. I’ve only mentioned my past because, like every other human being on this planet, I have a complex backstory, which shapes my fears, my interests and my opinions. I never forget that inner complexity when I’m creating a fictional character and I certainly never forget it when it comes to trans people.

All I’m asking – all I want – is for similar empathy, similar understanding, to be extended to the many millions of women whose sole crime is wanting their concerns to be heard without receiving threats and abuse.

Facebook is currently undergoing a siege of advertisement boycotts because they won’t censor the platform enough, but for some reason, investors keep pouring money into the company. Basically, the Israeli group “Anti-Defamation League” is threatening to publicly accuse anyone who continues advertising with Facebook of supporting the Holocaust.

After stonewalling requests to ban Donald Trump and everyone who supports him, Facebook stonewalled. Now, they’re beginning to do categorical bans. They will no doubt just keep slowly doing more and more bans, all the while protesting that they support freedom of speech, like a woman protesting between giggles as you slowly tear off items of clothing. It almost seems like the whole thing is just a stage play being acted out for the edification of the audience.

The latest categorical ban comes against people trying to help homosexuals.

Male homosexuality is a vice and hygiene problem that has occurred in society for a very long time, primarily oriented towards pubescent boys. Historically, the men engaged in this behavior did not break away and form a degenerate subculture, or have this sterile aversion to women and family life. They had wives and families like everyone else.

This was a side behavior, not a lifestyle or an identity.

It was like this with the Greeks, Japanese and others, and is still like this with most Moslems and religious Jews.

Homosexualism, on the other hand, is a foreign ideology that was invented in San Francisco in the 1960s. It is an identity cult built around a pathological fixation on a sterile sexual hobby, to the exclusion of the principle function of sex. It is a rebellion against the natural family order – like feminism for men. Since it is a belief system and a cult, it should be curable by psychosocial intervention.

However, Mark Zuckerberg would rather that young boys be lured into this cult, get diseases, be psychologically destroyed, and die young with no children.

It is a disgrace to the medical profession that the American Medical Association would cite these over-the-top, holocaustic claims.

There would be no need to do anything traumatizing to confused teenagers in order to teach them to act normally. Like any other behavior disorder, this could be mitigated with individual and group psychotherapy and group activities reinforcing appropriate behavior.

Not only is it impossible to advertise these services, but it is increasingly impossible to offer them in the West – they were banned in Germany this year.

Who F-ing called it?!? I called it here, a Cook Coonty sheriff deputy I know laughed when we spoke about the fictitious nigger bullshit story about “a big nigger dinner” and some “nigger medicine” and “I beez feelin’ sleepy an’ sheeee-IT!!!” at 12:30am.

—> So it’s A-fucking-OK for lying niggersow Tawana Brawley to smear its own poop on its hide forgoing jenkem for a day and the Duke lacrosse players being embarrassed ALONG WITH their parents and families.

But it’s NOT A-OK for nigger Chicongo PD Superapetendent Eddie Johnson’s nigger fambly to be embarrassed because the big fat lying piece of shit nigger was at a jenkem party getting drunk and high off free jenkem and stolen Crowne Royal.

Double dumb animal nigger standard!! Fuck you nigger fats-O Johnson and niggersow lezboon Chicongo Mayor Lori Lightpaw, I’m surprised Lightpaw didn’t protect and obfuscate for big fat lying niggerboy Johnson.

Thank you TRH for the apedate on big, fat, lying, blubberlipped coon cop nigger Johnson.

I’m an attorney and one of my clients sent a photo of her naked child to me without warning me what it was and suddenly I had a child’s vagina on my screen at work. That was not a fun experience. That client was one of the worst people I’ve ever known.

That just says alot about the legal system, a picture of a vagina can get u in trouble, isnt that crazy draconian? Meanwhile we have children playing video games where they all kill each other and thats perfectly legal. Sometimes we as sentient human beings have to step back and ask our selves, are we doing the right thing or are we being played by powerful people who dont even care about us,

Inceldom is a cult. If you’re romantically / sexually desperate please read the following in order to protect yourself

It’s really sad how this cult-mentality has found a home online. And make no mistake it is a cult:

⁠Most if not all new entrants have come to them feeling desperate (with life in general or over something specific)

⁠Day 1 of being “accepted” into the cult is to have what little self worth you have left crushed by other members under the guise of “delivering the harsh truth” or even trying to “”help”” them.

⁠Isolation. The founders or longer standing members will ensure the new entrant never strays from the confines of the cult. Claiming to “””open their eyes””” to dangers that all conveniently exist outside of their group.

⁠Dependance. They will then make sure that you reject any form of help that is not exclusively provided within their walls. Berating therapists as ineffective is a popular narrative for cults to jump on since what constitutes effective therapy can vastly differ from person to person (not helped by the fact bad therapists sadly do exist)

⁠Preaching. Once you’ve internalised all of the toxic views of the cult they will then remind you of the “good” they’ve done for you and really make it hard to say no when it comes to returning the favour. This will usually manifest in reciting the cults beliefs now firmly ingrained to other desperate souls for the cycle to repeat, and for the cult to grow

People NEED to be able to identify these steps as it just makes me sad to see what can start as innocent desperation to be warped into hateful preaching (and much worse).

If you’re at all sexually / romantically desperate, I do not judge you for feeling the crushing weight of loneliness but PLEASE don’t ruin the potential for things to get better by buying into this manipulative group of cult-leaders who would sooner incite violence in their “lower ranking” members than actually do anything themselves. They do not care about you outside of what they can do unto you and get out of you. You are worth more than this community ❤️

TL;DR: Screw Cultcels (aka all Incel “communities”)

I can’t tell if you’re shitposting or literally retarded. But basically all of that is bullshit.

1. Telling people objective facts is no more soul crushing in this instance than in any other. If men are disadvantaged in the dating market, then why should they be deluded into thinking otherwise?

2. “Isolation“ is a meme at best. No one is forcing anyone to stop interacting with the outside world, many members have active social/career lives, and there’s nothing stopping anyone from logging out of their account, otherwise all these “ex incels” wouldn’t exist.

3. Dependance? We mock therapists because it’s retarded to think one can even begin to change all the external things that are wrong. Even the few “good” therapists only give the generic advice, many of us can’t afford it in the first place. Shit, many of us even encourage those who are able to go and get cosmetic surgery, since that’ll still at least assure you tangible results unlike (((therapy))).

4. Preaching? None of us spout any more rhetoric than what’s already there, if anything we have discussion regarding ways to cope with this shithole life filled with norm scum. And our so called “cult” wants nothing from its members, there’s no financial motive save for hosting websites, there’s not even anyone forcing us to stay. Users openly condemn fakecels and tell them to leave. If you wanna leave incel forums, just brag about all the Stacies you bang regularly.

Yes there is direct requirements for being a man

You're not a man if you can't handle liquor, didn't lose your virginity before 18, can't grow a beard, don't have favorite sports team for the 5 major sports (football, baseball, hockey, basketball in that fucking order), and speaking of sports, didn't play varsity (or college) in one of those, do drugs (including weed), and can't lift at least your body weight.

Other than that you're some beta male soy boy

Why are men literally so obsessed with their rape worms?

Imagine how much better society would be if males had their sperm harvested at one time, stored, and then they were all castrated.

Listen you fucking homo boys, your time has come
And if you are a lesbian, you still got a cunt to rape
