...I think this is the same article... googled the name of the author.... found this on a different website....
...copy/pasted just fine (for once).... quite powerful arguments, she makes... it would seem.... being 'open and accepting' just gets you steamrollered by the crowd with the agenda.... and being forced to 'accept/endorse' things you don't really like.... or something like that...
...I'll leave it to others to remark, beyond what I've ventured here.... not my fight... do not care to engage this one....

In their campaign to silence women’s voices, trans activists have now turned their attention to Medium.com, which I had previously understood to be a site on which ordinary people could express their opinions and present their arguments, regardless of how controversial they might be.​

It seems not.​

Feminist Olivia Broustra is, so far as I know, the first to be targeted by the trans cult. The latest of several articles she has published on Medium.com was taken down yesterday after complaints that it was “hate speech”. Olivia republished it on the site, only to have it removed again.​

Is it hate speech? How about letting people decide for themselves? Here is the full text of the article. Olivia is on Twitter @PolelifePussy​

Edited to add: At first it was just the one article that was censored. They have now got her entire account suspended. Two other articles linked to from elsewhere in this site can be viewed here: I am a Woman. You are a Transwoman. And that distinction matters and Dear Trans Women (Trans Identified Males)
The Trans Ego: Why Allies are becoming TERFS
Well done.

You got a trans woman to be considered enough of a woman to be put in the woman’s prison. You put a rapist into a woman’s prison, and you made that ok. You let women get harassed by rapist until the rapist was moved to solitary. You made that ok. Because the validation of the trans person mattered more.

Well done.

You kicked two women out of a women’s shelter. Because they were concerned that an intact (penis and balls) male would be in the their safe space. Because the trans persons feelings mattered more.

Well done.

You’ve made it cool to threaten women with violence. As long as you call her a terf, its ok. She deserves it. Transphobic bitch deserves to be beat right? Women getting punched at protests is fine since they were Terfs.

Well done.

You bully people who do not want sex with you. Label them transphobic. Because your validation matters more.

You’ve created new laws that allow any male to enter the sex segregated spaces of the female. As long as that male states, “ I am woman”, he is believed and allowed in. So now female spaces, created for safety, are all access passes. Because trans people matter more.

Well done.

You threaten places to use “inclusive language” and bullied those who still said female genital mutilation, pregnant woman, and dared speak about vaginas.

You’ve convinced the world that speaking about female anatomy is not inclusive, is bigoted.

Well done.

You’ve convinced the world that trans women have more right to speak about women’s rights, participate in women’s sports, hold women’s spaces in politics then women.

You’ve convinced the world that males are women. And you sacrificed women in the process.

Because you suffer from a narcissistic, egotistical, misogynistic view that you matter more. That you deserve more.

You did not fight for trans spaces. You fought for women’s. And you steamrolled over women in the process.

You did not say I am trans and thats ok, now let’s fight against male violence together. You demanded we call you woman, demanded we allow you in womanhood, and you threatened those who disagreed.

You demand the world fall at your feet instead. You demand the world worship your needs above all others. Especially above women.

When we ask what is woman, you say, “ a feeling”. When woman is meant to mean adult human female.

You call vaginas front holes and surgically altered and inverted penises vaginas. Because you need to be more woman than woman despite the fact that you cannot ever be woman, by woman’s own definition.

But the funny thing is, your ego will be your downfall.

I was prepared to fight for your right to trans spaces. I was prepared to support you when you bitched about having less dating options. Prepared to call you she if it made you feel better. Prepared to fight for your right to healthcare, and respect. Prepared to fight against gender and male violence against you. I was prepared to be your ally. Many women felt the same. Many terfs started as allies.

But then you said no. I don’t want trans spaces, I want yours. I want your vagina, your female spaces, I want you to stop using your words, I want you to stop talking about your body, I want to destroy you in your sports, take your places in public offices, schools, and organizations. I WANT YOUR WOMANHOOD. And you expected me to comply. To hand it over. And you’ve convinced many to do just that.

But women talk in the shadows about the truth. You cannot ever change sex. You can mimic the stereotypes of women, you can mimic our bodies, though considering the uterus, ovum, cervix, clit, pelvic floor, its a fairly poor mimic. You can “feminize”your face, though as an androgynous female thats a bit offensive, take voice lessons, and walking lessons, but you can never live the experience of being born female. You can never turn a male into a female so in truth sex change is a misnomer. You can never experience being born woman.

And that should have been ok with you. There is nothing wrong with admitting you are not the opposite sex. there is nothing wrong with having dysphoria and admitting that you are trans. There is nothing wrong with not fitting in with your natal sex. You can be something unique. And indeed if you look at the hundreds of ways trans people express their trans-ness, every trans person is unique. But all trans people are trans. But you decided that wasnt enough to fight for. It wasn’t enough to fight for your own unique being. At least it wasn’t enough for the male trans activists who became the loudest most volatile part of the movement. Instead you feel you must police the rest of the world into validating your dysphoria. But listen:

We don’t tell anorexics that their body dysmorphia is right and that they are fat.

We did not turn every restroom stall in the world into a disabled access stall.

We don’t force people to fuck incels.

We didn’t ban peanuts from existence when many people became deathly allergic.

We did not allow Rachel Dolezal to claim transracial.

And we shouldn’t be forced to sacrifice the needs and issues and concerns and spaces of 50% of the population for your minuscule undefinable group.

Most people who don’t fit in the norms, find ways to cope, they create support groups for themselves, spaces for themselves. Because most people get that life is not going to be fair for everyone, cater to everyones needs. The more you fight to destroy women’s right to woman, the more enemies you create.

You’ve managed to piss off lesbians and straight men for telling them its transphobic to not want your “lady dick.”

You’ve managed to piss off women by trying to claim womanhood and destroy our earned fought for spaces and condemn our need for safety as hate.

You’ve pissed off parents by trying to convince them their nonconforming child is trans and should have medicalized puberty blocking that can leave children underdeveloped and sterile. Bye bye grandkids and even future sex lives sometimes.

You’ve turned your own allies against you by becoming hostile at mere questions.

You’ve united women of color, white women, men, conservatives, liberals, moderates, lesbians, gay men, even de-transitioned trans people against you.

So well done.

P.S. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Thank you very much for finding that for me!

I feel very strongly about protection of many women being put at risk by a tiny few claiming they are women also.

I have known domestic violence survivors, r*pe survivors and incest survivors. Not a single one of those women could have physically been able to protect themselves from a transsexual "woman' who took a liking to them.

If wanting biological women to be safe at the expense of transsexuals' feelings makes me a TERF, then I will wear that label with pride.

I did a search on TERFS and we certainly are disliked by the thought police.

GLAAD: We Want ‘20% Of Series Regular Characters’ To Be ‘LGBTQ By 2025’
By Frank Camp

On Thursday, GLAAD published its annual “Where We Are on TV” report, which examines the number of LGBTQ characters on television.

In the opening paragraphs of the report, GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis states that television plays a crucial role in our culture when it comes to “changing hearts and minds.” She adds that according to a study, “less than one-quarter of Americans have a close friend or family member who is transgender,” which means many Americans “learn about trans people from what they see in television, movies, and news.”

Due to this statistic, Ellis says, the casting of trans actor Brian Michael Smith in Fox’s “9-1-1: Lone Star” is important.

The report then cites an online survey of 2,037 adults conducted by Harris Poll suggesting that 20% of Americans ages 18-34 identify as LGBTQ, and that approximately 12% of overall respondents identify as LGBTQ.

However, according to a 2017 Gallup survey that conducted “telephone interviews with a random sample of 340,604 U.S. adults,” only 4.5% of the U.S. population identify as LGBT.

According to Gallup: “The percentage of millennials who identify as LGBT expanded from 7.3% to 8.1% from 2016 to 2017, and is up from 5.8% in 2012.”

The GLAAD report issued a final challenge to the television industry:
GLAAD is calling on the industry to ensure that 20 percent of series regular characters on primetime scripted broadcast series are LGBTQ by 2025. Further, we would challenge all platforms to make sure that within the next two years, half of LGBTQ characters on every platform are people of color. While broadcast has actually hit this mark two years in a row, cable and streaming have yet to reach this goal. These two steps are key moves towards ensuring that entertainment reflects the world in which it is created and the audience who consumes it.​
Even if one uses GLAAD’s survey data as a real estimate of the percentage of LGBTQ persons in the United States, the organization’s challenge that “20% of series regular characters on primetime scripted broadcast series” should be LGBTQ by the year 2025 would amount to severe overrepresentation.

Using GLAAD’s data, LGBTQ television characters would outweigh the actual LGBTQ population by 40%. Using Gallup’s data, the difference would be even more stark, with LGBT characters on television outweighing the actual LGBT population by 77.5% by 2025.

GLAAD’s push for overrepresentation could be a factor in the overestimation of the actual LGBT population by many Americans.

In 2019, Gallup asked respondents: “Just your best guess, what percent of Americans today would you say are gay or lesbian?”

The average respondent believed that 23.6% of the population is gay or lesbian. Broken down further, 35% guessed that the gay and lesbian population was “more than 25%”; 19% guessed that it was between “20% to 25%”; 10% guessed that it was “15% to less than 20%”; and 14% guessed that it was “10% to less than 15%.”

Only 8% guessed that the percentage of gay and lesbian persons in the United States was “less than 5%.”

""Do you want LGBT people to die?" the teacher reportedly asked."

10-year-olds say they were suspended after asking to be excused from LGBT lesson
Ryan Ledendecker, The Western Journal
Published November 11, 2019 at 10:47am

The thought police are on the prowl once more, reducing independent thinkers and religious individuals to a pile of embarrassment and shame -- even if their targets are only children.

In South London, two 10-year-old Christian students say they were suspended after they asked their Heavers Farm Primary School headteacher if they could forgo participation in a lesson about LGBT topics during "Pride Month."

Headteacher Susan Papas allegedly told both kids, who are of African heritage, that their opposition to the LGBT activity made them "a disappointment to the school," Christian Concern reported.

The students, Farrell Spence and Kaysey Francis, were given five hours of detention and were suspended for a week. Watch Kaysey defend her beliefs in the video below.

Christian Concern@CConcern

Watch a 10-year-old child’s view of the damaging impact of the LGBT agenda in schools. Kaysey was manipulated, bullied & unlawfully excluded by her headteacher for alleged anti-LGBT comments. Kaysey categorically denies the allegations and she is backed by children in her class.

The debacle started on June 20, after Farrell received propaganda-like LGBT coloring material from his teacher Alex Smith. When asked if he could skip the activity, Smith denied Farell’s request and told him it was part of the curriculum.

Later, Smith accused Farrell of saying "LGBT sucks and LGBT’s dumb," however, the pre-teen denies ever using "homophobic language."

During his next class, Farrell told a different teacher that he couldn’t "accept LGBT" because of his Catholic faith. He said this while sitting beside Kaysey Francis, a Pentecostal Christian classmate who shared his sentiment.

"Do you want LGBT people to die?" the teacher reportedly asked.

The two students responded "no," but added that same-sex couples would be punished if they lived in their countries of origin. Farrell told the teacher that he was of "African Jamaican" descent and that "everybody is Christian and Catholic, so they don’t accept LGBT."

Word spread quickly about the students, prompting headteacher Papas to allegedly harass the students and give them five hours of detention that day.

"How dare you? You are a disappointment to the school," Papas said, according to the two students.

Papas -- whose daughter is lesbian and the School Manager -- reportedly reamed Kaysey after the kids were put in separate rooms, saying, "How dare you say that you want to kill LGBT people?"

'I didn’t say kill." Kaysey responded. Papas shouted back "Yes, you did, and don’t lie" before beginning the detention.

The mothers of Farrell and Kaysey are fighting the suspension, noting that students cannot be suspended for "a non-disciplinary reason," per the school’s own regulations.

A spokeswoman for Heavers Farm Primary School issued a statement to The Western Journal on Monday.

“We take our duty to teach the fundamental British values of tolerance, equal rights and mutual respect very seriously," the statement said. "We will not tolerate any violence, or the threat of it, against any members of our community and we will always take necessary steps to protect our pupils, staff and visitors."

The incident reminds me of a Bible story in Daniel 3 about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego -- three God-fearing Jewish boys who refused to bow down to the King of Babylon, King Nebuchadnezzar.

When they refused to submit, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were thrown into a massive furnace that became so hot that the people who threw them were killed by the heat.

But when Nebuchadnezzar looked into the fire, he saw four people walking around -- Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego and the Son of God. Not a hair on their head was singed and they had the divine support they needed to withstand the fire and flames.

Farrell and Kaysey stood strong for biblical values in the heat of the moment and now they are joined by tens of thousands of like-minded people who agree with them.

Only 8% guessed that the percentage of gay and lesbian persons in the United States was “less than 5%.”
On Australian TV shows it feels like they have crossed past 20% easily. The men are the worst with the lisps and hand gestures.

As well as the soapies and the comedy shows every major non-fictional show has them, journalists, TV presenters, comedians etc.
Lifestyle shows e.g. My Kitchen Rules and House renovation competitions has a mandatory gay couple.

I feel like I am avoiding more and more TV shows as a result. I am sick of it.

Singer and songwriter Ellie Goulding threatened to cancel her planned halftime performance for the Dallas Cowboys' Thanksgiving football game unless the Salvation Army issues a show of support for gay marriage.

Goulding made the demands after her fans appraised her of the traditional marriage stance of the Salvation Army, which is a Christian organization.

The popular football game promotes the "Red Kettle Kickoff" show that raises money for the charitable efforts of the Salvation Army.

I hope they do boo her off the stage! Who does she think she is!? And to kowtow to the "oh, so compassionate" LGBTQ mafia no less.
Tired of all the virtue signaling and self righteous BS from these hypocrite celebrity types. Bring on the NUGE!

This was one of my first posts on this forum. The reason I made the post was because I became very aware that the music industry was leading a generation of kids into a trans agenda.

https://vigilantcitizenforums.com/t...ramming-in-the-music-industry.2693/post-90408

I was quite surprised at the time at the amount of posters who frequent VC forums who outright rejected that there was any agenda in play. On a platform that supposedly scrutinises the music industry I found that a bit odd to be honest. I haven't the time to go back and retrieve some of the posts claiming how paranoid I was and there was no agenda to turn people gay or trans.

The amount of supporting evidence posted by various posters in this thread alone supporting the fact that there is a transgender agenda is overwhelming. Face facts, open your eyes, stop denying it is happening. It is happening.

What I love about this interview is the fact the young trans activist blows his/her own argument out of the water by making a fundamental mistake. When challenged over the fact that at one school in Brighton there were 76 pupils who identified as either gender fluid or non binary they then use the argument that it's because Brighton is such a liberal area (its the gay capital of the UK) so there isn't so much stigma attached to expressing your gender identity.


.....but hold on a minute......from day one hasn't the argument always been that trans and gay people were just born this way?


She never ended up taking a whole generation of kids into the trans garden did she?


https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...same-sex-education-court-ruling-a9218101.html

For the people who claim this agenda doesn't exist....shame on you.

Saw this the other day..I have heard that Austin is very liberal..I think it must be true.

The Austin Independent School District’s Board of Trustees voted early Tuesday morning to adopt new sex ed curriculum that expands topics taught to third through eighth graders.

New topics include gender identity and expression, sexually transmitted infections and anatomy, and they sparked hours of public testimony before the unanimous vote just after midnight.

Critics said the new lessons are inappropriate and shouldn’t be taught in school.
