A Week in the War on Women: Monday 20th November - Sunday 26th November
Monday 20th November - “Both Sides”
Gender critical feminists tried to host an event in Oregon but were stalked, threatened and physically attacked by trans activists.
Feminist organisation, Women’s Declaration International (WDI), had planned an event at the Hollywood branch of the Multnomah County Library in Portland, Oregon, on Sunday 19th November. The intention was to address concerns about gender identity ideology and discuss the rights of women and children.
Of course, leading up to this meeting, trans activists issued their usual threats of violence and their usual hyperbolic rhetoric about ‘anti trans genocide’ etc etc. It was clear that trans activists were orchestrating a targeted campaign against WDI, even posing as feminists to gain access to planning information about the event.
Trans activists even singled out specific women, as demonstrated by this poster depicting Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) founder, Lierre Keith.
On the morning of the event, WDI USA President, Kara Dansky, and Lierre Keith reported that they had been stalked to the AirBNB where they were staying and that their car tyres had been slashed.
Later that morning, trans activists vandalised the library itself, breaking its glass doors and spraying graffiti on its exterior walls. Consequently, the library decided to close to the public. There were serious concerns over the safety of WDI members and library staff. Only a few hours before the event was due to start, county security informed organisers that they were unable to guarantee their safety due to the overwhelming numbers of trans activists and their clearly violent intent. The decision was taken to cancel. Instead, the WDI decided to host their event outside on the pavement near the library.
Within minutes of the women assembling to speak, a violent mob of male trans activists descended on them. Kara Dansky described events to Reduxx, explaining that a small group of around ten women was massively outnumbered by around 30-50 masked trans activists. Initially, the men were screaming at the women, calling them fascists etc. Then the trans activists started throwing cans filled with liquid at the women and pepper-spraying them in their faces. “Several of the women in our group were sprayed directly in the face with mace, causing immediate and temporary blindness, and excruciating pain”, Kara reported. “The men punched several of us and pushed them onto the ground and repeatedly kicked them while they were on the ground. Four women had to go to the hospital to be treated for their injuries”.
Some of the women at the event tried to record the behaviour of the trans activists. However, two of the women filming had their GoPro equipment stolen and a number of other women had their phones snatched and/or destroyed. None of the stolen property has yet been recovered. Sam Berg was one of the attendees who had tried to film the events. “They punched me in the face”, she reported. “When I fell down they kicked me in the hip. They immediately went for the camera, and stole my phone as well. It was very scary.”
A woman called Cass described being attacked by the activists, explaining that they’d also physically assaulted an elderly woman who wasn’t even involved in the demonstration. “I felt somebody either push me or punch me in the face. I fell down, my glasses broke. As I was walking away, I saw an unrelated elderly woman in her 70’s walking alongside us. They pushed her or threw something at her and she fell down.”
At least four of the women involved had to seek medical treatment at the ER. Although the police were contacted, they did not attend the event. Kara Dansky reported, “While we were being assaulted, several women called 911 as it was happening. No one in the Portland Police Department responded to these calls reporting active incidents of assault, battery and robbery”.
Lierre Keith posted photographs of the injuries she sustained on X (Twitter).
Other women also sustained cuts, grazes and bruises having been physically assaulted by trans activists.
Both sides, eh?
Tuesday 21st November - This Never Happens #1
REDUXX: A trans-identified male facing numerous charges of sexually abusing a child is being affirmed in his ‘gender identity’ by the forces of law and order.
We have reported on Michelle (formerly James) Blessant in the past. He is a trans-identified male from Bloomington, Illinois.
In April this year, he was arrested for five counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault. The official Facebook account for the police force in Bloomington reported this arrest naming the suspect as 33-year-old ‘Michelle’ Blessent. They failed to mention that ‘Michelle’ Blessant is a man.
Similarly, local news outlet, 25News Now, reported this incident, describing Blessant as a ‘Bloomington woman’ in its headline.
The alleged sexual predator, ‘Michelle’, however, is quite obviously male.
When first arrested earlier this year, Blessent was originally indicted on five counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Victim Under thirteen. Last week an additional three charges were applied, including one additional count of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Victim Under thirteen, one count of Grooming, and one count of Exploitation of a Child. The Bloomington police have confirmed that all of the charges relate to the same victim.
Officer Brandt Parsley of the Bloomington police department told news station, Cities92.9FM, that Blessant’s arrest is being treated as if he were a woman due to his self-declared gender identity.
Also Today - Is There A Special Handshake?
THE TELGRAPH: Academics at Kings College London have been advised that expressing support for Stonewall could boost their career prospects.
Academics at King’s College London have been advised that demonstrating support for Stonewall could help them achieve a promotion. The prestigious Russell Group University has distributed guidance to staff on education and research contracts about how they can rise to become readers or professors.
Staff are required to submit an 8-page application form, one section of which is titled ‘inclusion and support’. The guidance lists working with organisations such as Stonewall as an example of good practice. The document from the human resources department advises academic staff how to complete the form. “You should evidence how you create an inclusive environment”, it states before listing as examples, “Participating in equality, diversity & inclusion activity”.
Dr John Armstrong, a reader in financial mathematics at the university, told The Telegraph, “We are being told that if we campaign on Stonewall’s behalf it will help with promotion. There are no college-approved groups that support the needs of female staff or that support academic freedom. This clear bias is discriminatory and undermines the impartiality and credibility of KCL research”.
Wednesday 22nd November - An Unsporting Chance
DAILY MAIL US: A trans-identified male swimmer has been winning races and smashing records in the women’s category after years of losing against other men.
The Cougar Splash Invitational is a two-day swimming meet at which US student athletes compete in a variety of events. The 2023 contest was hosted this week by Misericordia University in Dallas, Pennsylvania.
For the last three years, trans-identified male, Meghan Cortez-Fields, raced on the men’s team. This year he competed in the women’s categories and, unsurprisingly, proved hard to beat.
Cortez-Fields, a senior chemistry major from Ramapo College in New Jersey, set a school record in the women’s 100-yard butterfly, won the women’s 200-yard individual medley race and took second place in the women’s 200-yard butterfly.
In October 2022, Cortez-Fields was interviewed in student publication, Ramapo News. At the time he was still swimming on the men’s team but he spoke of his determination to swim in female categories and cited Lia Thomas as his inspiration.
In the Ramapo News article, Cortez-Fields complained that he was not permitted to wear a swimming costume that covered his torso as doing so would disqualify him from men’s events. “I choose to tape my breasts because I feel it is very uncomfortable and kind of dehumanizing to swim without a top”, he said.
He does not seem to have a problem with the discomfort and ‘dehumanizing’ of the women against whom he competes and who are forced to share changing and bathroom facilities with him.
As if his mockery of women wasn’t already galling enough, Cortez-Fields sports a tattoo on his forearm depicting a naked female body, (seemingly a parody of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus) with bare breasts and male genitals.
Thursday 23rd November - This Never Happens #2
REDUXX: A trans identified male has been indicted on 14 felony counts after threatening mass murder and sexual violence in retaliation for ‘transphobia’.
As previously reported by Reduxx, in August this year the FBI intercepted a live stream on social media in which an individual was making disturbingly violent and sexually violent threats against schools and schoolchildren. Although he did not mention a specific institution, he suggested that a school shooting was imminent.
Using the IP address associated with the live-stream, the FBI identified the individual as Jason L. Willie, a trans-identified male who is also known as Alexia Willie. His address in Perry County, Illinois, was traced, and local police officers were asked to intervene.
Court records filed earlier this month reveal the extent and nature of the threats Willie issued during his livestream broadcast. Much of his diatribe involved the threat of sexual violence against minors.
“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.”
Willie also referenced Audrey Elizabeth Hale, the trans-identified murderer who killed three members of staff and three nine-year-old children at The Covenant School in Nashville earlier this year, and he threatened a copy-cat killing. “A person in Tennessee walked into one of your schools and shot up a bunch of your Christian daughters. That’s not the last of them if you don’t shut your fucking mouth. There’s a lot of transgenders out here that are tired of being picked on and we’re going to go into the schools and we’re going to kill their fucking children out here.”
Willie has now been charged with 14 felony counts of Interstate Communication of a Threat to Injure. He has been placed under arrest and is in the custody of the US Marshall Service. A trial date has been set for 16th January 2024.
Astoundingly, when Newsweek reported on this story - allegations that a violent male has threatened to rape and murder schoolchildren - the publication referred to Willie as a woman and used female pronouns throughout the article.
Friday 24th November - Witch Burning In Ontario
DAILY MAIL: An exhibit featuring powerlifter April Hutchinson has been removed from a Canadian museum because she objects to males in her sport.
In August we reported on trans-identified male, Anne Andres, stealing first place in a female powerlifting category at the 2023 Western Canadian Championship. Andres is a 40-year-old trans-identified male Canadian powerlifter who is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weights 250 lbs. Outrageously, he is permitted to compete in women’s events. The sport’s governing body in Canada - the Canadian Powerlifting Union (CPU) - allows competitors to ‘self identify’ their own gender. Consequently males like Andres can compete, even at the highest level, in women’s categories without requiring any medical treatment, physical alteration or testosterone reduction.
Not surprisingly, Andres holds numerous records in the female division, including women’s deadlift and bench press, and he’s ‘won’ ten out of the eleven competitions in which he has participated. In August he stole first place in the Female Masters Unequipped category at the 2023 Western Canadian Championship. Not only that, he set both a Canadian women’s national record and an unofficial world record.
April Hutchinson is a female powerlifter who has courageously spoken out against the inclusion of trans-identified male competitors in women’s powerlifting events, challenging the CPU’s glaringly unfair policy. From the moment she started speaking out, she was warned that she would be banned from the sport over her views but she could not ignore the gross unfairness. In August, Hutchinson appeared on Piers Morgan’s TalkTV ‘Uncensored’ programme and spoke of the physical advantages which males have over women.
Anne Andres submitted an official complaint to the CPU and Hutchinson became the subject of an ethics investigation.
A few weeks ago, Hutchinson made public the results of that investigation. For speaking out for fairness in women’s powerlifting, she is facing a two-year ban.
Hutchinson told The Daily Mail, “Andres has been allowed to compete, take the podium in place of a biological woman and set national records that may never be broken. Everyone knows this is unethical. But the federation has been too cowardly to do anything… As a result, the rights of biological women are trampled”.
Now, because of her heroic stand against cheating males in women’s sport, April Hutchinson has been removed from an exhibit at Museum London in Ontario.
Hutchinson had been celebrated for overcoming alcoholism and maintaining her sobriety in an exhibit called ‘Resilient London: Meet Your Neighbours’, on which she collaborated with the venue for over a year. However, earlier this month, the museum wrote to Hutchinson, informing her that she would now be removed from the display.
“It has come to our attention through national and international media that you have recently made discriminatory comments regarding transgender women that deny their existence. Misgendering someone intentionally is a form of discrimination.
Unfortunately, your comments and the public discussion around them are harmful to the 2SLGBTQI community and are not consistent with the values of our organization nor are they consistent with the objectives of the exhibition. As such, our team has made the very difficult decision to end your participation in the Resilient London project effective immediately.”
Hutchinson told The Daily Mail, “I am just so shocked that they would do this. I am fighting for women, I am fighting for fairness in sports. This is not anti-trans”.
The museum, which has now protected its X (Twitter) account, claims ‘everyone welcome’. Unless you’re a woman who wants female sports to be fair and safe, that is.
Saturday 25th November - Balls To Men In Women’s Football
THE DAILY MAIL: A trans-identified male who played on a female football team, injured an opponent and threatened legal action after women refused to play against him has worked as a ‘naughty schoolgirl’ prostitute with a ‘surprise’ under his skirt.
Earlier in the week several different newspapers reported on 30-year-old Francesca Needham, a trans-identified male who, until recently, played football for Rossington Ladies in the Sheffield and Hallamshire Women and Girls League
It is reported that Needham caused a serious injury to an opposition player who suffered a broken knee after she tried to block a shot from him. Consequently, fearing for the wellbeing of their players, a number of teams have refused to compete against Rossington Ladies due to Needham’s inclusion on the pitch.
The manager of one of the teams explained their position to The Daily Mail. “I have 16 and 17 year old players playing for me and their parents weren't too keen to put their welfare at risk”.
Another team manager told The Daily Mail that said it was immediately clear that Needham is a trans-identified male. “It was obvious. Unfortunately, the FA allowed it to happen but didn't let anyone know. She's [sic] quite a big strong player. People have refused to play because they are worried about the safety of the players. Psychologically it's quite a big thing, when you are playing against a biological man it's quite scary. They were terrified.”
A further source spoke to The Telegraph of their experience playing against Needham. “Five minutes into our game, it was obvious Francesca was biologically male. The league is competitive and physical… We were gobsmacked. Even the referee at the time couldn’t believe it.” The source explained that they had tried to voice their concerns to the league and to the local FA but never received a response from them.
The source described the strength of feeling among other teams about the prospect of having to play against a trans-identified male. “We had a Zoom call together and you could feel the emotion pouring out,” they said. “We’ve been terrified of saying anything. We don’t want to be accused of being transphobic. We don’t want the names of our clubs dragged through the mud. It has been like walking on eggshells. I’ve heard of women thinking of deregistering as players because of this. There are psychological scars. It’s not fair. We’re volunteer coaches – we don’t need this. We’re responsible for the welfare of our players. And I don’t think it’s being taken seriously enough.”
With teams refusing to play against them, Needham agreed to withdraw from Rossington Ladies ‘for the foreseeable future’. However, he seemingly intends to return to women’s football and, astoundingly, is even threatening to take legal action over so-called ‘discrimination’.
Writing on the club’s Facebook page, Needham made a statement:
“Rossington Main Ladies FC has faced challenges from teams unwilling to play against us while I am on the field. This unfortunate circumstance has prompted me to investigate pursuing a case of discrimination…
It's disheartening to acknowledge that this situation contradicts everything in the diversity and inclusion policies, given that I have diligently met every single requirement set out by the Football Association to play.
I sincerely hope that this issue of perceived discrimination against me can be resolved peacefully and promptly, with the full support of the Football Association and the policies they have written and approved.”
The FA’s trans inclusion policy for players over 18 is decided on a case-by-case basis. Biological males wanting to play in women’s football need to satisfy ‘hormone-based requirements’. All of the scientific evidence, however, demonstrates that, even after reducing testosterone levels, males retain numerous physical and physiological advantages over women and any loss of muscle mass and strength is negligible.
Fiona McAnena of Fair Play For Women told The Daily Mail, “Footballers are separated by sex for very good reasons. If you put one male on the pitch they are faster, they are stronger. It is patently unfair and in a contact sport like football it's unsafe. These women didn't choose mixed football, they chose women's football. It's not because this player is trans, it is because they are male”.
Later in the week, The Daily Mail reported that Needham has worked as a prostitute, marketing himself as a ‘pre-op trans girl’ with a ‘surprise’ under his skirt, and that he specialised in schoolgirl and cheerleader fetishism.
The paper published details of Needham’s profile on a sex work website where he is known as ‘Cleo’. His profile says that he is bisexual, willing to service male and female clients, and enjoys a variety of sexual fetishes including lactation, role play and foot worship. It also says that Needham specialises in schoolgirl and cheerleader fetish scenarios.
“Looking for a pre-op trans individual to fulfil your desires? Look no further! I can be your naughty schoolgirl, complete with a surprise under my skirt. Hello to all you adventurous individuals! Are you seeking a unique girlfriend experience or looking to be dominated by someone like me? …We can even roleplay a schoolgirl or cheerleader scenario where I can be your naughty student in need of punishment.”
Needham insisted that he no longer works as a prostitute and that he ‘accidentally’ left his profile on the sex worker website.
A source close to the women's football community told The Daily Mail, “It is clear the birth male playing on the ladies team has been a sex worker. This is a massive safeguarding concern. It's worth bearing in mind this birth male would be sharing changing rooms and single sex spaces with young females”.
Sunday 26th November - Witch Burning In Westminster
THE SUNDAY TIMES: Labour MP, Rosie Duffield, is being investigated for alleged antisemitism after she ‘liked’ a tweet criticising Eddie Izzard’s attempt to appropriate the Holocaust.
Earlier this year, together with over 4,000 X (Twitter) users, Rosie Duffield ‘liked’ a comment which Graham had made about Eddie Izzard.
In a Sky News interview, Izzard had not only claimed that he is ‘a trans superhero’ but also that, had he lived in Nazi Germany, he’d have been murdered.
Firstly, his claim to be ‘trans’ is laughable, especially as he was being interviewed about a film in which he plays a male character. Izzard was talking about his role as Thomas Miller in wartime drama, Six Minutes to Midnight. According to the interview, he uses ‘boy mode’ for acting and ‘girl mode’ for activism. How very convenient that he can slip back into his male persona when expedient, particularly as male roles are far more prevalent and far better paid for actors of Izzard’s age.
Furthermore, Izzard’s claim that he - a heterosexual, white male with no disabilities and no Jewish or Roma heritage - would have been murdered under the Nazis is also ludicrous. And offensive. Graham’s comment was spot on
Rosie Duffield was one of the few Labour Party MPs who raised her voice against the party’s antisemitism in the post-Corbyn era. She is a vice-chair of the all-party parliamentary group on antisemitism.
Lord Austin of Dudley is a former Labour MP and the adopted son of a Holocaust survivor who resigned from the party over its antisemitism in 2019. He has described the investigation into Duffield as ‘madness’. He said, “There are very few MPs who have fought antisemitism as strongly and as consistently as Rosie Duffield”.
Nevertheless, she is being investigated by the Labour Party for alleged antisemitism because she ‘liked’ Graham’s comment about Eddie Izzard. Consequently, she currently does not appear on the party’s approved list of candidates to stand at the next general election. Despite being selected to fight her seat last year, she has been omitted from the official list because she is facing a disciplinary investigation.
It seems the Labour Party’s determination to punish Rosie Duffield for her defence of women’s sex-based rights continues apace. As The Times reports, there are suggestions “There was a concerted campaign whipped up by LGBT Labour to weaponise the tweet because of their opposition to Duffield’s gender-critical views”. As is so often the case with the tactics of trans activism, the process is the punishment.
One source told the paper, “They have made a cynical calculation that complaints of antisemitism are more likely to result in action being taken against her than complaints about her gender-critical views, especially now they are party policy”.
See you next week.
