'Transgender Ideology' is Today's Anti-Feminist Backlash

Thain Parnell, radical feminist writer and activist, exposes 'trans-activism' as the latest counter-movement against feminism. Read her article, “Feminism has been co-opted but it won't last,” originally posted on Medium. Throughout history, when great gains are made by feminists in the pursuit of women's rights and liberation, a blacklash movement strikes back – often co-opting the term 'feminism'. The practice and ideology of 'trangenderism' is simply the latest form of anti-feminist activism (a.k.a. men's rights activism). We OBJECT.

Hot Chocolate Doesn't Help Women Exit Prostitution

Critique of an article in the Manchester Evening News, praising a so-called 'sex workers' charity' which offers prostituted women hot drinks – BUT calls them “sex workers” and claims that they are just doing a “tough job” like “any other worker.” We OBJECT to irresponsible media referring to the sexual exploitation of women as a “job”. The MEN article blames women for their own abuse and covers up the culpability of the men who use/abuse prostituted women. We OBJECT.

Beard Removal on the NHS: A Hairy Issue

Men who declare themselves to be 'transwomen' get laser-hair removal funded by the NHS – they don't even have to 'get the snip' first (or at all). The treatment received by 'transwomen' is a cut above that offered to women. An NHS Senior Consultant speaks out anonymously – public discussion of this hairy issue runs the risk of being accused of 'transphobia'. Let's not allow this to become the perm.

'Gender' Self-ID: Listen to Female Survivors

The female survivors of male-inflicted rape, sexual abuse and sexual violence need FEMALE-ONLY spaces and services for recovery. A rape crisis centre in Brighton is already operating ‘gender’ self-ID policy. This may be partially attributed to desperation for funding and unlawful victimisation under the Equality Act. Last week, Harry and Meghan (the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) visited the centre, but did they seek to listen to the female survivors excluded from this service? Please listen to female survivors and amplify their voices in your reply to the GRA Reform consultation (Deadline: 19th October).

Review of La Traviata

Janice Williams reviews and recommends a modern version of the opera La Traviata. La Traviata tells the story of a poledancer in “the most realistic portrayal of a strip joint you are ever likely to see on stage.” The performance is snappy, fast-paced and perfectly suitable for those of us who ‘hate opera’!

Critique of Jordan Peterson - Male Rights Activist - 'Father Figure'

In Jordan Peterson’s latest book, “12 Rules For Life: An Antidote to Chaos”, he presents himself as an archetypal wise old man and a father figure, appealing particularly to young men. He is a Men’s Rights Activist disguised as ‘Daddy’. This critique of his work reveals how he entices young men into adopting his misogynist philosophy. In his mind, WOMEN are CHAOS and CHAOS must be controlled, reigned in and disempowered by men. We OBJECT.

GRA Consultation - Fill in YOUR Protected Characteristics

Respond to the Government Consultation on Reform of the GRA before 11pm 19th October 2018. The consultation wrongly ONLY asks ‘trans’ respondents about their protected characteristics (under the Equality Act 2010). We recommend that, even if you are not ‘trans’, you fill in YOUR protected characteristics and give YOUR opinion on the proposed law changes.

The Brothel Next Door

Gemma Oldman describes her experience of a pop-up brothel setting up next door. She took extensive notes and reported her concerns to the police and a human trafficking helpline. Is enough being done to help victims of sex trafficking in the UK? We don’t think so. There are no consequences for the punters, the men who buy and rape the victims. We OBJECT.
