A Week in the War on Women: Monday 4th September - Sunday 10th September
Monday 4th September - On Yer Bike
REDUXX: A duo of trans-identified male cyclists have stolen first place at two different cycling events in the women’s category.
29-year-old Evelyn Williamson has been competing in women’s events since 2017, stealing 18 first place titles during that time. In March 2020, however, he competed in the Sky Express Winter Criterium event in both the Women’s Pro Category and the Men’s 2/3 Category. He wasn’t even placed in the men’s race. In the women’s event, of course, he took the first prize.
54 year old Tessa (formerly Michael) Johnson was racing as a male until just last year when he began competing in women’s categories.
Competing as a team, Johnson and Williamson have won two separate championships in recent weeks… in women’s categories, obviously. Firstly, they won the xXx Racing-Athletic Relay Cross in Chicago on 27th August. Only a few days later, they won the women’s pro race at the State Championship in Madison.
During first the race in Chicago, they competed under the team name ‘TS-ESTRODOLLS’.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has stated he thinks that men can be women.
Speaking to Piers Morgan on Talk TV, Sadiq Khan was asked what a woman is. He responded: “I answer that question knowing full well that people are going to be watching this who may have gender dysphoria and may have concerns in relation to this issue… A woman, when it comes to biology and sex, is an adult girl. But there are some women who may have gender dysphoria and trans women can also be women as well.”
No, Mr Mayor. They can’t. Because they’re male. (You’ll note that Khan can’t bring himself to use the word ‘female’. And that his concerns are for the people watching who ‘may have gender dysphoria’, not any of the women viewers.)
Earlier in the week, The Sun revealed that Sadiq Khan’s office gave almost £100K of London tax payers’ money to trans lobby group, Gendered Intelligence, to indoctrinate children and young people aged 11-24 in ‘gender identity’.
Gendered Intelligence is a registered charity that “Works to increase understandings of gender diversity and improve the lives of trans people”. Much of its work focuses on children and adolescents and it runs workshops for ‘trans kids’ as young as seven.
It has been delivering training in schools, including primary schools, telling kids they can change their names and pronouns ‘at any time’, since 2008. As Transgender Trend says, “In itself, confusing young children about biological sex and eroding boundaries between the sexes through pretending that sex is not real, should be something that rings alarm bells for anyone concerned with safeguarding and child protection”.
Gendered Intelligence operates online sessions about ‘exploring medical and social transition’, it gives advice on accessing breast binders and hormones and runs swimming sessions where participants can, “Wear whatever you like as long as your bottom half is covered”.
Furthermore, it runs camping trips for 11-17 year olds and 16-25 olds which involve “Living in a trans-only space” ie away from parents.
Sadiq Khan’s office gave these child-catchers a grant of £94,847 this summer.

THE DAILY MAIL: A US mother is suing a Virginian school district and a Baltimore public defender over the unthinkable harm caused to her vulnerable trans-identified daughter.
Michelle Blair, a mother from Virginia, has filed a lawsuit against the Appomattox County School Board and district staff and a Baltimore public defender over actions which, she alleges, deprived her of properly parenting her child. Her teenage daughter, according to the suit, suffered a catalogue of horrors due to their interventions.
Michele and Roger Blair are Sage Blair’s biological grandparents but they legally adopted her when she was a toddler. Sage has a history of mental health issues, including depression, eating disorders, self-harm and hallucinations.
Sage was being treated for depression when, in 2021, aged fourteen, she started a new high school. It was at this school, her parents believe, that Sage was exposed to an array of sexualities and gender identities. Her new school was well aware of Sage’s mental health issues but still allowed this vulnerable young girl to ‘identify as a boy’ and call herself Draco. The school kept this change of ‘gender’ from Sage’s parents who had no idea that their daughter had been socially transitioned.
Sage was very badly bullied at her new school. According to Michele Blair’s law suit, this bullying involved both verbal and physical assaults and a barrage of rape threats from male pupils. Despite such threats, it seems that Sage was still encouraged to use the boys’ toilet facilities at school. Eventually, apparently because of the bullying she was suffering, Sage ran away from home.
Tragically, but perhaps not surprisingly, Sage was apprehended by a predatory male. He raped her, trafficked her to other paedophiles and carried her off across state lines, first to Washington DC and then to Maryland. Eventually, Sage was rescued by FBI agents. Her nightmare should have ended there but, instead of being returned to the care of her family, she remained in the custody of the Baltimore juvenile court. An area public defender, Aneesa Khan, deemed Sage's parents were not ‘sufficiently affirming’ of her trans identity. The law suit claims that Khan fabricated a story of parental abuse and neglect which persuaded a judge to retain Sage in state custody.
Sage was accommodated in Maryland according to her ‘gender identity’ in a male juvenile facility. Michele Blair’s law suit alleges that, while there, Sage was sexually assaulted, exposed to drugs, and denied medical and mental health care. Blair’s attorney, Vernadette Broyles, commented, “This is a 100-pound girl, what do you think happens in this facility?”. Unsurprisingly, Sage ran away.
Again, Sage was snatched by a sexual predator who took her to Texas where, according to the law suit, she was raped, drugged, starved and tortured. Texan law enforcement officers rescued Sage and notified her mother who was finally able to take her daughter back home to safety in Virginia. Since returning to her parents’ care, Sage has been diagnosed with complex PTSD and undergone intensive therapy to address the extreme trauma she has suffered.
According to the Child & Parent Rights Campaign, who filed the law suit on behalf of Michele Blair, the school's decision to withhold information about Sage's gender identity deprived Blair of her ability to “Exercise her fundamental parental rights to direct the upbringing of her daughter, including making educational and mental health decisions”. Vernadette Broyles argues that the horrors which befell Sage were caused directly by school's actions. She said, “It is frankly just cruel and irresponsible for school officials to be encouraging confusion, gender confusion, in particularly traumatized young girls”.
Tuesday 5th September - The Naked Truth
REDUXX: Vulnerable young women who identify as male are being encouraged to attend mixed sex naked workshops and residential events.
According to Lee Gale’s LinkedIn account she worked as an admin assistant and massage therapist before becoming a ‘freelance trainer in trans awareness’. For the last five years she has worked at Gendered Intelligence and is currently a senior trainer consultant there. Jay McNeil is a senior clinical psychologist at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. She has worked for the NHS since 2016. They are both trans-identified females.
Together, Gale and McNeil set up TransBareAll in 2009.
The group hosts a variety of events, including residential ‘weekends away’ which are mixed sex - “A chance to be with other trans and non binary people to explore, share, learn, and relax” - and feature communal sleeping arrangements. They ‘explore’ a variety of topics including ‘relationships, creativity, sex, gender outside the binary and BDSM’.
These mixed sex weekends away also involve participants getting naked. “One of the founding principles of TBA is around supporting body confidence, our events include naked space in which everyone present is welcome to wear as little or as much clothing as they feel comfortable in”. Furthermore, there are ‘show and tell’ sessions at which residents “Can show any part of their body and talk about the significance of that”.
And if participants are concerned about sharing a bedroom with a stranger, TransBareAll assures them there’s no need to worry; “Please know that while it might not be something you’ve done since you were a child, it quickly feels quite comfortable”.
Reduxx reports that TransBareAll now appears to be targeting trans-identified women with eating disorders. One of the residential weekend events being held in November is called ‘Nutritional Relationships’ and described as an opportunity for participants to “Take a tender and sensitive look at our relationships with food and eating.” Again, this weekend is mixed sex - “Open to anyone who self-identifies as being on the trans spectrum or is questioning their gender” - and, again, “The accommodation consists of dorm type rooms of various sizes”.
Wednesday 7th September - This Never Happens #1
MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS: A trans-identified male recidivist sex offender has been convicted of sexually assaulting two prison officers.
Katana Paris has a long criminal history comprising 87 previous convictions, including sexual assault by touching and assaulting a police officer. He was already serving a three-year sentence for sexually assaulting a nurse when he groped two staff members at HMP Forest Bank in Manchester last year.
During the first incident, a female prison officer approached Paris’s cell to serve his breakfast. When she unlocked the door to the cell, Paris stepped outside. He was asked to move back but ignored the request and held the prison officer’s hand. He then ‘jumped up and down’ as if excited, moved towards the prison officer and touched her genitals.
The following day Paris attacked a male prison officer who was serving his lunch. The officer reported that Paris was ‘quite aggressive’ and that, as he unlocked the hatch through which to pass the food, Paris reached out his hand and grabbed the officer’s genitals. The court heard that the officer ‘felt violated’ and had to use ‘his body strength’ to push Paris back into his cell.
In Manchester Crown Court this week Paris pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault and was given a further six months on top of his original sentence.
Paris was referred to with female pronouns throughout his court appearance. Similarly, the media outlets - Daily Mail, Daily Record, Birmingham Mail and LBC - reporting on this case also referred to this predatory male as she/her.
The Daily Mirror even described Paris as a ‘woman’ in its original report on this case. Following a backlash on social media, however, it altered the text and deleted its initial post on X (formerly Twitter). The revised version still uses female pronouns.
Thursday 7th September - Leave Them Kids Alone #2
This week Transgender Trend published an article by ‘Cynthia’, a 15-year-old girl who is a pupil in a state secondary school.
Cynthia talks about the “Rabidly intolerant, frenzied, hostile, and dogmatic activists” of gender ideology who proliferate in her school. “There is an atmosphere of fear when it comes to this specific issue – even normally outspoken students are afraid to venture into the depths of this debate in fear of being called ‘transphobic’, since any viewpoint that differs from that of the ideologues is considered ‘wrong’ and ‘bigoted’. The online culture of no-debate seems to have leaked from internet forums into school, and I’ve heard threats of violence being spewed by my own classmates against those they deem ‘transphobes’ and ‘TERFS’”.
Staff members, says Cynthia, can be equally vociferous. “Some teachers also get in on the action and promote gender ideology in their own lessons, despite it not being part of the curriculum. One of my teachers talked about how ‘it was a shame that JK Rowling turned out to be a massive TERF’ during one of our lessons, whilst another told my sister’s class that Zeus – the Greek God – ‘could have actually been non-binary’”.
On the subject of social transition, Cynthia says, “This raises problems when children like me don’t wish to pander to the transitioning child’s delusions that they are the opposite sex, since forcing children to use biologically incorrect pronouns is questionable at best and active gaslighting at worst – it infringes against our freedom of speech and belief… Hatred towards people who don’t believe boys can be girls is already rampant at my school, and mandating the use of a political selection of language to endorse child transition, all the while gaslighting children into believing their classmate has changed sex, is not something we should be allowing, let alone promoting in schools”.
Earlier this week The Telegraph reported on hearsay that the promised and long-awaited government transgender guidance for schools could be shelved. However, writing in The Critic, Conservative MP, Miriam Cates, scotched this rumour as categorically untrue. Nevertheless, she did add that “The urgent need for this guidance cannot be overstated”.
Of course, she is absolutely right. The Cass Review stated that allowing pupils to socially transition in school is ‘not a neutral act’ and one widely believed to harm a child’s well-being. Furthermore, it affects the other pupils who are being gaslit, confused and asked to participate in a lie.
Miriam Cates: “The fact that schools — which have a legal duty to protect children from harm — are endorsing the social transitioning of children in their care should be seen as a major failure of safeguarding that requires Government action. But it isn’t just the harm being done to ‘transitioning’ children that should cause alarm. When schools allow a child to change their name and pronouns, other children in the school are pressured into accepting this new identity… When people are compelled by those in authority to repeat untruths or remain silent when lies are spoken, they lose their sense of self-worth and ability to resist coercion; it is unthinkable that this should be happening to children in a democracy”.

VOICE OF EUROPE: A trans-identified male has been convicted of abusing his partner’s two young daughters.
The trial of a Swiss trans-identified paedophile was held in Burgdorf this week. (The man has not been named to protect the anonymity of his victims.) Between 2009 and 2018 he was in a long-term relationship with the victims’ mother and lived in the family home. The mother worked full-time while the man was often at home alone with her two young daughters. He abused the girls over a period of nine years.
The eldest daughter was approximately 11/12 years old when the man began molesting her. The indictment states that sometimes he would abuse her wearing women’s lingerie. According to an article in 20 Minuten, the man had a BDSM fetish and often subjected the eldest daughter to ‘bondage sessions’ when abusing her.
The younger daughter was approximately four years old when the man began abusing her. She told the court about the grooming she and her sister suffered. She also spoke of the ongoing trauma she suffers as a result of the abuse.
The court minutes record that the man was wearing ‘clothing typical of women’ during proceedings. 20 Minuten reported that “The accused says he has been wearing typical women’s clothing such as skirts and stockings for five or six years. However, his internal gender conflict had already existed for 10-15 years. He now clearly feels like he belongs to the female gender”.
Reduxx reported that the man was found guilty of sexually abusing his partner’s two young girls. He was sentenced to 50 months (just over four years) in prison and ordered to pay a fine of around €41,725/£35,800.

IRISH EXAMINER: A trans-identified male physically assaulted a homeless woman at a Dublin shelter but has avoided a prison sentence.
This week The Irish Examiner reported that Shauna Kavanagh, a hairdresser with a violent criminal past, was sentenced after violently assaulting a homeless woman. What the article neglects to mention is that Kavanagh is a trans-identified male, not a woman as implied in the text. Similarly, The Irish Mirror and Sunday World reported on this case referring to Kavanagh with female pronouns, both outlets failing to mention his true sex and trans identity.
We have reported on 35-year-old Shauna (formerly Sean) Kavanagh in the past. Since 2009 he has amassed 15 different criminal convictions. In 2021 he pleaded guilty to two counts of assault and one count of assault causing harm after attacking three men in ‘a drunken rage’ at a pub. One of his victims suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain and had to spend eight days in intensive care.
This week Kavanagh appeared in Dublin County Court where he pleaded guilty to yet another assault charge. In April 2022, he attacked a homeless women in a Dublin shelter, punching her repeatedly and tearing out clumps of her hair.
The victim told gardaí that Kavanagh grabbed her by the hair, pulled her to the floor and punched her with a closed fist four or five times. He then sat on top of her and tore out clumps of her hair. Still traumatised after the attack, the victim was not able to attend the court hearing.
Kavanagh was given a three-month suspended sentence.
Thanks to Ireland’s self-ID laws, Kavanagh has a gender recognition certificate and is legally female. Consequently, this violent and volatile male can access any and every supposedly female-only space in the country. Indeed, he has previously been jailed in the Dóchas Centre, a women’s prison.
Saturday 9th September - Leave Them Kids Alone #3
THE IRISH MIRROR: Children at a Dublin primary school are being instructed they have to use ‘gender neutral’ pronouns for their female teacher.
On their first day back at their Dublin primary school, the third class pupils - ie eight and nine year olds - were instructed they have to refer to their ‘gender neutral’ teacher as ‘they’ in the classroom. According to parents, the female teacher is already correcting children if they slip up and call her ‘she’.
Psychotherapist and best-selling author, Stella O'Malley, commented: “Insisting on children using 'they/them' pronouns is in breach of the HSE's Children First guidelines… The concept of being non-binary is complex. Some children will be fine with it, some uncomfortable, some will not accept this rule and some will believe they are being asked to lie. Other children will have religious beliefs that prevent them from viewing this teacher as they/them (or non-binary). Children with additional needs could be confused and distressed”.
Does she really believe that confusing and gaslighting children, forcing them to participate in a lie, somehow gives her the moral high ground?
Sunday 10th September - Let Women Speak
This weekend trans activists proved, yet again, that they are just misogynist MRAs who seek to silence women’s voices.
Firstly, on Saturday, a Let Women Speak event was held at Park Paardenveld in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Hours before the event, the city council granted permission to an ANTIFA group to hold a protest on the very sport the LWS rally was due to take place.
From the outset, trans activists - many of them male and masked - swarmed in to try and derange the LWS event with their usual tactics of noise, intimidation and puerile attempts at sabotage.
They displayed a banner encouraging suicide.
A male wearing a tiara tried to blind the women speakers, using a mirror to shine sunlight in their eyes.
Trans activists tried to kick down the police barricades which separated them from the women in attendance.
The police removed the barriers because trans activists were planning to use them as weapons.
The following day, on Sunday morning, Sex Matters organised an event at the People’s History Museum in Manchester. Featuring Maya Forstater, Helen Joyce and Emma Hilton, it offered an opportunity to learn about the Equality Act, hear about the fight to ensure legislation protects women’s rights and share stories and ask questions.
Of course, trans activists couldn’t allow women a few hours in which to discuss and learn about their legal rights. With tedious inevitability, they turned out to try and disrupt the event and intimidate those in attendance.
Firstly, they tried to block the entrance to the venue.
They made noise.
The major protagonists were exactly as you’d imagine; mostly male and masked.
As usual, they had no arguments to present, only insults and childish gestures.
“Lots of aggression” was reported by attendees.
It was also reported that trans activists lied about the Sex Matters event to passers-by.
Those attending the event had to leave the venue by the rear door because of the danger presented by trans activists.
After the event, trans activists harassed attendees in the street and stalked Helen Joyce, Emma Hilton and Maya Forstater, dogging their heels and shouting abuse.
Trans activists (with obviously male voices) can be heard shouting “Fuck Helen Joyce” as they trailed behind her along the pavement. They can also be heard chanting “Free Sarah Jane” ie Sarah Jane (formerly Alan) Baker, the trans-identified male convicted of torture and attempted murder who called for women to be punched in the face.
Eventually, Helen, Maya and Emma had to be escorted from the area by a police vehicle for their own safety.
Both sides, eh?
See you next week.
