Well sure, but how many other people employed a paedophile apologist (and that's at best, advocate or active participant at worst)

Which is the problem. This guy made very little attempt to hide this shit. So either they have to admit they hired him, knowing full well what his views were. Or that they didn't do the slightest bit of research before making him a trustee

This is going to have far reaching consequences beyond Mermaids. He's written for Pink News, he's employed at LSE, Sally Hines of refusing to even be on the same panel as Kathleen Stock fame has chaired panels where he's spoken.

It's why they're pushing so hard when it comes to sports, because it's an area where even people who aren't clued in at all can go "Well that seems like bullshit"

When it comes to things like men on lesbian dating apps or male rapists in women's prisons there's always some degree of (likely wilful to some degree) disbelief, people would rather pretend it isn't happening because it seems too ridiculous. But with sports it's not only acknowledged, but supposed to be celebrated.

Hatchet hasn't been the only one this time around, though most of the vocal critics are the people whose livelihood might be at stake once people realise you don't need a doctorate to say you're a woman and that has an impact on your day to day life.

Do I agree with everything KJK says? Nope. Do I agree with almost anything Corcoran says? Hell no. Do I agree with everything Hannah Berrelli says? Also no. All three of those women come from different points on the political spectrum, all three of them spoke at the Brighton event. At previous events there's been a Muslim woman explaining why she chooses to wear a hijab and how gender inclusive spaces clash with her religious beliefs. There's also been a Muslim woman explaining why she rejects the hijab. That's the beauty of the events.

Not to mention the other way around. One of your sons has gone missing, his older brother was previously molested by a guy and you can be pretty sure he's still in the same area. And that guy isn't the prime suspect for you? You don't go to the police and say "Hey, our kid's missing. There was this guy one of our other kids got molested by. Should probably look into him, see if he knows anything, he's definitely already on the sex offender registry"

Pretty much the same situation here. I've had some conversations where I've tested the waters, pushed the boat out a little then drew it back in to see where people's boundaries lie. I know at least a couple of guys who are of the "We don't have to believe the same stuff, so long as you're not an arsehole about your beliefs" way of thinking. Which is all I want really, I don't really give a shit what your political leanings, sexuality, race or fashion sense are, so long as I know you're not going to flip your shit just because I don't believe the same things you do, or advocate for the same things you do.

Really the LibDems should be manoeuvring their way into trying to snatch up the centre, but they're some of the looniest of the bunch right now. I really don't want to vote Tory, since they're so fucking awful on everything else. Wish I were in Sheffield, so I could vote for KJK and get to spite Eddie Izzard in the process

I sort of get where they're coming from, but at the same time his being gay did play a big role both in how he found his victims as well as why he got away with it as long as he did. Shit, one of his victims was handed back to him by the police because he told them they were gay lovers and he'd just ran away from a lover's spat. The kid was 14 and looked it. Maybe they could have leaned a little harder into showing the massive failings by the police and how attitudes around gay culture at the time played into that.

Anyway, Des was a good recent show about another gay serial killer Dennis Nilsen. There are definitely parallels you could draw between Dahmer and Nilsen, both in how they found their victims as well as what they did with the bodies after (though I believe Nilsen never engaged in cannibalism he certainly had an obsession with his victims' bodies and also had a habit of photographing them). Creepy performance by David Tennant in that

Ok, that was always allowed

We're making sure gay people know they're welcome in areas, where they've never really been made to feel unwelcome. What's the point? It's the same thing with adding the black and brown stripes to the pride flag. Has the gay community had its issues with racism? Seems like it, yeah. But the solution to that isn't elevating black people above everyone else and making a point of how welcome they are, it's cutting out the shit that makes some of them feel unwelcome.

It's insane, all because they refused to back down on archiving what Keffals did. There's no actual proof they were the ones who doxed Keffals, the information for that seems to have come from a different site. The weird Unionist threat against him came from a weird Unionist, not KF, apparently someone had told this guy that Keffals and a friend had been cutting down Union Jacks in the area and replacing them with trans flags.

Are the regular users of KF slightly obsessive arseholes? Sure, there's no law against being a slightly obsessive arsehole though.

Why do they always talk about bodies like they're plug and plays? It's weird to be that detached from your physical self and just see it as a collection of parts that can be switched around like a Mr Potato Head. That really ties into the whole "genital fetish" line too, since they seem to think it's basically a case of switching one around for the other, or that people are only attracted to the genitals, rather than the whole male or female body.

The man's an arsehole of the highest order. Happy to talk about what a great ally he is now, but his own voting record on gay rights back when he was in the closet was atrocious. His testimony yesterday was nothing short of laughable, just answering questions that weren't asked, throwing out wild accusations. I think he genuinely thought he could just act how he does on Twitter. At one point he claimed one of the supporters of the LGBA impersonated an MP (him). He was referring to James Dreyfus having uploaded a video where he was playing an obvious parody of him.

With both LGBT Consortium and Mermaids saying they're not medical experts, even though they've obviously been giving out medical advice, or at the very least steering individuals towards medical services this whole thing is starting to feel like a way less funny version of WKUK's RC Glow sketch. They're basically pulling the medical equivalent of "That's for finance to figure out" and expecting that will absolve them of any guilt.

The whole thing is fucking wild. The thread as a whole, her saying Basquiat is arguably the most popular artist in the world (which really just shows what kind of privileged bubble she lines in, because nowhere outside of upper class art snob circles is Basquiat the most popular artist), people actually trying to defend it.

And apparently she has ThreadReader blocked. I don't know why anyone would do that

I don't think she's even a manipulator, I think she's a genuinely unhinged person, who's managed to garner some sympathy from people too high off their own virtue to realise they're not helping (that's the modern arts scene, I guess). You can't really act surprised that nobody wants to work with you, when this is how you act towards the people offering to.

it's like an entire organization has NPD.

Large swathes of society. Today saw one member of parliament make a complete fool of himself with another currently in the process of making a fool of herself with her support of him. When Julie Bindel tells you you're getting it wrong, maybe your response should be to look into it a bit more rather than sarcastically say "Ooh looks like I've made a new friend". And I'm not saying she can't be wrong, there are a fair few things I disagree with her on, but when someone with her track record says "Hang on, this is damaging to women and lesbians as well as many other sectors of society" maybe it's worth at least giving it a second thought.

There are a couple of dozen tweets after these, but the craziness doesn't subside at all.

From what I can tell the origins of this issue stem from her being given an exhibition on Basquiat at the Guggenheim after she'd previously had success with it at her Alma Mater. She then let this go to her head, started acting like Billy Big Bollocks, flinging accusations of racism around, though it seems the Guggenheim certainly didn't act optimally. The cherry on top of this whole thing is her previously having told someone else not to idolise Basquiat, because he was a dope fiend and a homo (her words)

don't they realize the horrible optics of going after another charity?

They believe themselves to be in the right, the optics don't matter. What this trial has shown quite well is exactly why we need healthy debate and a plurality of opinions for a healthy society. Because some of the shit coming out of Mermaids' witnesses can only come from never having their opinions challenged, or being able to no platform anyone that does. John Nicolson today said "A lesbian is anyone who identifies as one. The lesbians on my commission would agree with that". That's because you kicked out all the lesbians that didn't, John.

We're onto day three an today we start off with John Nicolson MSP on the witness stand. He's committed to early mistakes, in trying to blur the boundary between adult and child and in using "born in the wrong body" which isn't even Mermaids' stance anymore.

Edit: And he's just said a lesbian is anyone who chooses to identify as one. Not really making a great case as to why LGB Alliance aren't needed

Not particularly, they're just cutting into their bottom line, both through their mere existence and their actions. Turns out when your whole business model is based on "If you feel uncomfortable in your body, get radical surgery to change that" someone saying "Actually, maybe you should learn to be comfortable in your body, especially if your discomfort is being caused by your sexuality" is dangerous to your profit. Organisations like Stonewall & Mermaids have pretty much had it out for them from day one, in part because they can't stand gay people who won't toe the ideological line

So for some context here, Mermaids a UK charity whose CEO flew her son out to Thailand at 16 to get his dick inverted, along with a few other organisations mostly notably LGBT Consortium (whose CEO Paul Roberts was the main witness today) have appealed against the Charity Commission's decision to grant LGB Alliance charity status. However, before they can challenge that decision it has to be determined if they're actually allowed to (if they have standing in this case), because it's basically unprecedented for one charity to file a claim like this against another. Which is what the current trial is about. And things are not going well for Mermaids side.

Today was a dumpster fire, under the questioning of EHRC Commissioner Akua Reindorf (who was previously involved in a review of the University of Essex where she stated Stonewall are clearly interpreting the law how they would like it to be rather than how it is), the aforementioned Paul Roberts said some pretty fucking stupid things. Including that it would be transphobic to state that a female can't be a gay man, that he personally doesn't know many butch/femme lesbian couples, that he's only skimmed the Cass report (despite his organisation signing a declaration criticising it) and that he doesn't know if men are stronger than women

So with all that being said "He at least said TWAW and TMAM" is probably about the best Mermaids can say

The LGB Alliance got torn apart for suggesting that maybe, just maybe, they should consider shutting down saunas for a little while. Now months on the same people who criticised them for it (Little OJ, Buttergasp) are crying about the medical establishment not caring about gay people, because they've waited too long to give advice on how to stop the spread. You were given advice, you didn't fucking like it

I think what this shows is a further incident of a point someone made about a recent case involving Sheffield's NHS Trust involving discrimination, which is that the law is getting the comparator entirely wrong when it comes to discrimination on the grounds of gender reassignment. What Mermaids and many other organisations are arguing is that in not treating a female like a male (in this case a gay organisation being allowed to exclude them on the basis of being female), they're discriminating against them, because they're not treating them like a man. But that isn't, or at least shouldn't be, the comparator for gender reassignment. What it should be is, are they treating her the same as anyone who doesn't have that characteristic, in other words, are they treating her the same as they would any other woman, who doesn't have the characteristic of gender reassignment. That's how it is for any of the other protected characteristics (bar maybe disability, where you can discriminate by not providing adequate accommodations) and that's how it should be for gender reassignment too.

Just a further attempt to square the circle. I guess they're hoping if they use big words like "subconscious" people won't notice that this is the same "A woman is anyone that identifies as one" bullshit they've already tried.

For more word salad nonsense TribunalTweets are currently live tweeting Mermaids attempt to get the LGB Alliance stripped of their charity status and one of Mermaid's witnesses is getting torn apart by Akua Reindorf. Turns out that's what happens when you have to explain this nonsense to a competent lawyer.

Shit, there are rumours of China intentionally crippling athletes to be competitive in the Paralympics. Considering they went from 6th in golds and 8th in totals to 1st in both within four years I could believe that. And even 20th in golds and 22nd in totals to 1st in both in the Winter Paralympics between 2018 and 2022, something fucking stinks there. I'm willing to believe there are individuals and countries that will pull any trick necessary to win.

That happens more often than you think. You don’t notice it much because most bisexual men don’t want to make a fuss about their sexuality and they just date whomever they want.

I saw someone on twitter today arguing that one wouldn't be a straight relationship. Legit arguing that two bisexual men would be having bisexual sex (whatever the fuck that is) rather than gay sex.

Edit: Having read the whole thing, this is just a predictable fluff piece from the Guardian. Once again they're pushing the no advantage route by repeating the "I can't do stuff I was used to be able to" or "Some of those women are stronger than I am", fundamentally misunderstanding (let's face it intentionally) what an advantage actually is in a sporting context.

Safe from what exactly?

A question we all need to be asking more often. It seems like all you have to do nowadays to get your way is say some variation of "That offends me/That makes me feel unsafe/That causes harm" and nobody ever questions how or why. People need to learn to not instantly give in, just because someone says they feel unsafe. Sometimes it's fucking ridiculous for something to make you feel unsafe. When someone says they feel unsafe, simply from being in the same room as someone who maybe once said something not 100% supportive, the response needs to be a shrug and a "Sounds like a you problem"

When an estrogenated man with breasts loves women, that is not lesbianism, that is mutilated perversion. [Such an individual] is not a threat to the lesbian community, he is an outrage to us. He is not a lesbian, he is a mutant man, a self-made freak, a deformity, an insult. He deserves a slap in the face. After that, he deserves to have his body and his mind made well again.

Nope. Not that they didn't try, but actual lesbians saw it as a joke then and see it as a joke now.

Also, just more projection, since they're the gender essentialists. They're the ones trying to tie behaviour to presentation/identity. That's the height of gender essentialism.

Part of the reason for that is a lot of them not actually being written by gay people. It's like all those gay romance shows written by straight women, they're not for gay men, they're for straight women. That's why both protagonists are uwu softbois, so it's easier for the women to self insert

It's the mildest comment I've seen. All he said was "Rowling and Linehan might have a point" and implied autistic people are overrepresented in gender clinics, which is backed up by the interim Cass report. This is like the Salem witch trials, merely saying "Now hang on, how do we know they're a witch?" gets you branded with accusations of witchcraft
