‘Drop the T’ is one of the most important political petitions I have read in a long, long, time. Milo Yiannopoulos (@Nero), wunderkind cultural libertarian of Breitbart Tech (@BreitbartTech – worth a follow) has supported a petition for the Lesbian, Gay and Bi-Sexual rights movement to sever its ties with the transsexual ‘rights’ movement. It is essential that anyone who believes in freedom of speech sign this petition. Your author explains why #GamerGate should help.
The Washington Post recently decried the defeat of the so-called ‘Houston Equal Rights Ordinance’ (HERO) (archive here). This innocuously titled piece of legislation was controversial because, in essence, it meant transsexual people who identify as women but with physically male bodies (i.e. who have penises) would be able to access women’s bathrooms.
Some feared this would be intrusive to women and worse, enable sexual predators. Opponents, screech the liberals, engaged in, “a campaign of fear-mongering and deliberate lies”. We are repeatedly told by a wide variety of extreme leftist / SJW talking heads that there is in fact no evidence any sex offender has ever posed as a woman to find victims.
No evidence? Those concerned about such sinister legislation could do worse than look at evidence recently filed in the United Kingdom Parliament by the British Association of Gender Identity Specialists, basically the professional association for doctors who treat gender dysphoria sufferers in the United Kingdom. They gave evidence (archive here, pdf here) to the Transgender Equality Inquiry on 20/08/2015 that makes terrifying reading. Please remember that this is not some right-wing extremist group – this is the professional body of the UK doctors who deal with transsexuals, and their President is concerned about –
“[…] the ever-increasing tide of referrals of patients in prison serving long or indeterminate sentences for serious sexual offences. These vastly outnumber the number of prisoners incarcerated for more ordinary, non-sexual, offences. It has been rather naïvely suggested that nobody would seek to pretend transsexual status in prison if this were not actually the case. There are, to those of us who actually interview the prisoners, in fact very many reasons why people might pretend this.”
