A Week in the War on Women: Monday 16th May - Sunday 22nd May GOOD NEWS SUPPLEMENT
So much good news from the gender beat this week, this edition is bursting at the seams. Enjoy!
The Long Arm Of The Law
The new HM Chief Inspector of Constabulary doesn’t seem keen on police upholding gender woo as law.
Andy Cooke, who took over the role last month, said that chief constables should remember there is a clear distinction between what is and is not a crime. “We’re not the thought police, we follow legislation and we follow the law, simple as that.”
Working For Us Whilst Against Us
No wonder trans activists are so determined not to debate!
This is what happened when the petulant ‘Jane’ appeared on Piers Morgan’s TV programme to talk about the Standing For Women event in Manchester. He had nothing more coherent to offer than sulking, swearing and insults. Give him his own show and let him peak the nation!
Sunday’s event in Manchester got plenty of coverage elsewhere in the media, with much focus on the thuggery and aggression of the milky bar militia trans activists.
One of the articles contains an interview with Aleks Kovacevic, the woman attacked in the scuffle, and quotes Kellie-Jay Keen. “In 2022 nothing could encapsulate the assault on women's rights so perfectly as masked men preventing women from speaking next to the Pankhurst statue.”
Aleks Kovacevic was interviewed on GB News.
Suzanne Moore wrote about the ‘Black Pampers’ in The Telegraph.
“One side is waving suffrage flags and singing, the other side is in balaclavas and using nooses. The horrible truth is that the gimps in masks believe themselves to be ‘progressive’ rather than cowardly anonymous misogynists. Hide your faces as much as you like. We see you.”
The Telegraph also described the incident in which Aleks Kovacevic was attacked in another article.
A Level Playing Field
Henry McMaster, Governor of South Carolina, has signed into a law a bill that will prevent trans-identified males from competing in female sports in colleges and state-run schools.
He’s Just A Skater Boy
Solidarity and huge respect to professional female skateboarder, Taylor Silverman, who spoke out about having to compete against trans-identified males on social media this week. She said she is ‘done being silent’.
Kudos to Tim Pool, YouTuber and podcast host, for stepping up to the plate and offering remuneration to the female skaters who lost out.
Colin Wright @SwipeWrightFemale skateboarded Taylor Silverman is speaking out after placing 2nd to a male competitor who identifies as a woman at the @Redbull Cornerstone contest. Silverman and other female skateboarders were robbed of their achievements and prize money "that was meant for women." https://t.co/jVA48itMRa
Keir Meets The Women Who Won’t Wheesht
Members of Labour Women’s Declaration sought out party leader, Keir Starmer, at the Labour Women’s Network gala. He agreed to speak with them on the issue of women’s sex-based rights. Watch this space…
On the other side of The House, Sajid Javid, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, was unequivocal that “Biological sex matters… Facts matter”.
The Times @thetimesA girl who argued that biological sex is real after a talk about transphobia felt forced to leave her school after pupils hounded her for challenging the views of a visiting speaker https://t.co/tnmddjIKao
The New York Post reported on JK Rowling being ‘uncancelled’ by David Zaslav, the new boss at Warner Bros. Discovery. According to The Wall Street Journal, Zaslav is already meeting with Rowling to discuss new Harry Potter projects.
Not only news to gladden the heart but the tone of Kyle Smith’s NYP article is a joy! Phrases such as “Rowling, known for holding such extremist views as ‘women are a different thing from men” and “Although most of Rowling’s antagonists appeared to be either spotty 14-year-olds or adjunct professors of gender studies” can’t help but raise a smile.
As he so rightly says, “Presumably, we’ll be getting some new Rowling/Potter content. Hurrah! The Prisoner of Wokezkaban is free.” Hurrah, indeed.
Top Of The Bill
There was yet more encouraging news from the US when comedian and host of HBO’s Real Time, Bill Maher, performed a blistering 10-minute monologue, challenged the validity of gender identity ideology and particularly the ‘transing’ of children.
“We’re literally experimenting on children… It’s a blow being struck in the culture wars using children as cannon fodder.”
