URGENT CALL FOR ACTION

Can I urgently raise something for any readers in Wales - the Welsh government is running a consultation on its Electoral Candidates Lists Bill which closes this Friday at 4pm.

https://senedd.wales/consultation-senedd-cymru-electoral-candidate-lists-bill

Under the guise of ensuring gender equality in the Senedd, the Bill contains the following (capitals are mine):

"At least half of the candidates on a political party’s list must be women. ...

Where a candidate on the list is not a woman, the next candidate on a political party’s list must be a woman. ...

Women must be placed first on at least half of a political party’s candidate lists. ...

All candidates on a political party’s list would be required to STATE EITHER WHETHER THEY ARE, OR ARE NOT, A WOMAN. "

Like the SNP's attempt with Gender Representation on Public Boards, this is an attempt to put self id into law and to conflate gender identity and sex. It does nothing for equal representation in the Sennedd - quite the reverse as a Sennedd could be 100% male provided at least 50% of Members "stated" they were women.

Please, please can as many as possible complete this. You don't have to answer every question so it needn't take you long. You can request your responses remain anonymous.

Though this move is certain to be ultimately defeated in law as the Welsh government is acting outside its devolved powers, we don't want the possibility of years of taking it to court, not to mention the £100,000s required to fight it, and whilst it is used to further entrench self id.

Welsh Labour need to be sent a message that the Welsh people object to this dismantling of women's rights.

Can non residents of Wales fill it in? If yes, then I’ll do it.

Typically for our government they omit to tell you this!

BUT I've just tried using my old English postcode and it hasn't kicked me out so I think the answer is Yes.

Thanks.

WRN say you can fill it in even if you are not in Wales. I will put this in my update tonight 😊

Thanks for your hard work as always, JL, bringing us these shocking stories.

My wife and I and two friends were at LWS on Saturday and, despite the police allowing the bawling nutters with their insulting signs, to surround us, it was a great event . The Scottish Act is a clear breach of the Human Rights Act and seems unworkable. All you can do is repeal it in my opinion. I have reported on the event including with some photos here:

These trans laws are the product of a cynical programme to introduce the most draconian censorship which will have nothing to do with “gender assignment” or any of the other nonsensical chimeras of the “trans” discourse. Although there are no doubt vast legions of vulnerable deluded young people whipped up into hysteria on the one hand and legions of dangerous predatory males on the other, the whole operation is a theatre to install a fascistic dictatorship.

THIS!! 👆👆👆👆👆

Although all of this could only work if this culture already despised women. In a culture that actually respects women and girls there's NO WAY it would have got this far. It's a testament to how feminism has been co-opted by powerful forces to serve elite males at the top.

"Powerful forces" have not "coopted feminism": maybe only some third wave "LibFems" who aren't really feminist at all.

"Fourth Wave" feminists, as successors of "Second wave" feminists of the 1970s (including me), specifically resist the regressive trans cult and lucrative body dissociation industry, and the attempt to erase women as a sex class by calling us "menstruators" "cervix-havers" "chestfeeders and "birthing people", invading our spaces, sports, job quotas etc -- while "Trans Women Are Women", the new inclusive class.

Have a look at 4W, Reduxx, Sex Matters, the Women's Declaration International, the Green Women's Declaration, Green Feminists UK, the Women's Rights Network, For Women Scotland, Fair Play for Women, the11thHourBlog.com, and all the feminist authors, movers and shakers -- JK Rowling, Kellie-Jay Keen, Kathleen Stock, Jennifer Bilek, Eliza Mondegreen, Genevieve Gluck, Helen Joyce, Maya Forstater, Naomi Cunningham, Joanne Cherry, Abigail Shrier, Allison Bailley, Sally Grover, Rosie Duffield, Miriam Cates, Lisa Selin Davies, our own JL and many more.

"So there’s an acceptable risk of harm?"

So it seems. Even with the low bar of gender ideology excesses, that one never fails to shock.

You'd think the first crime committed by a dangerous man in a woman's prison (or a changing room or a toilet) would have led to mass outrage but no - it seems there's a level of violent sexual assault that we're just supposed to tolerate in obedience to the Cult of Tolerance and Kindness.

Not only that but the pronouns of the psychos who commit these crimes are to be respected. Orwell didn't see this shit coming but then who, in their wildest fever-dreams, would?

That was my reaction last week. I'll give this week a FFFS. Can't wait 'til our reactions are toned down to FS... evidently much work still to be done 'til we get to that level. As ever thanks JL.

Wow! HUGE amount of work gone into this blog. Thank you!

This truly EVIL man should have been given the death sentence! His words are taken from the blog:

"“I catch your daughters in them bathrooms alone, I am gonna fuck them. I mean I am gonna fuck them until they're dead… I’m in the bathroom feeling your little girls’ pussies. I love feeling on your little girls’ pussies. You can’t do nothing about it. I don’t care. I’m openly a paedophile. You guys can’t do nothing about us. You can cry. Put me on national television, I don’t care. I’m transgender, I’m in the bathroom raping your fucking daughters and I’m openly letting you guys know this… We will fuck your daughters in that bathroom, I guarantee it.”

Such evil humans have no right to life. None at all.

I am sick to death of the way this sinister cult is being allowed to grow and grow. Every teacher/union leader/judge/police officers/etc complicit in this HELLISH HORROR must be arrested, charged, go to trial...and be sent to prisons, globally, for decades!

We should really be grateful for this evil bastard expressing the true feelings of predatory sex offenders gifted access to women's single sex spaces, as vanishingly few of them will be so honest and upfront about their true feelings and motives.

This memorable speech needs MAXIMUM PUBLICITY on every social media platform, sent to every newspaper (though few will print it) and emblazoned on LARGE banners for Let Women Speak meetings and gender critical demos.

I might even send it to my MP, Lloyd Russell-Moyle: together with some ONS stats (though I need to check them first):

99% of sex offenders are male

88% of victims are female

Male pattern sex offending does not change with transition

2% of male prisoners are convicted sex offenders

50% of trans-identified male prisoners are convicted sex offenders

This thing that never happens isn't happening, as the first speaker at LWS Edinburgh said. They're all vile scum, every man that causes harm or discomfort to a woman or a girl by being in our spaces. That peach that ranted about fvcking our daughters, he is representative of the transgender' male, he is not the exception. Listen and take heed, all ye fools and handmaidens aiding and abetting state sanctioned sexual abuse of women and girls. All you rotten aiders and abetters deserve no mercy, and you'll get none, either, when the day of reckoning comes.

Thanks once again ,JL, for highlighting the insanity that's still gripping the world in spite of the ever increasing evidence of the harm it's causing to so many people ,especially to women and children. EVERY single person who is complying with , or enabling , this horrific anti human ideology should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves and they can no longer make excuses for themselves on the grounds that they " didn't know "!! The evidence is now overwhelming and the and ,more importantly ,out in the open where we can all see it. It's despicable !! As for the Scottish Government's hate crime bill ,I ,for one , won't "wheesht"!! They can shove it (straight into the nearest bin). Thanks ,JL 👍👏❤️

As Grahame said in his talk in Auckland last month, the 'Guilty' in The Guilty Feminist is now the operative word. How shameful that they hosted that cretinous con man running Edinburgh Rape Crisis as a re-education centre for raped women who DARE to request female-only counselling. If he conned his way into the role without a GRC, can't he be legally removed?

hi Petal, i was a bit high post run when i commented and i deleted it after fearing i sounded like a nobhead. I often have post comment ‘oh i sound like a nobhead syndrome’ There’s enough nobheads out there talking shit without me joining in. Not here- i just mean in the internet as a whole.
