‘Overcoming the Cotton Ceiling’, annotated
Morgan Page's School For Scoundrels
Halloo hurray! Allison Bailey’s case has reached the despicable Morgan Page stage! To celebrate, I’m sharing with you a handy guide on how to read ‘queer theory’ by annotating the text of his infamous ‘Overcoming The Cotton Ceiling’ workshop advert.
‘Overcoming The Cotton Ceiling’. That’s literally the name of the workshop.
‘Breaking Down Barriers for Queer Trans Women’ “We’re going to sexually harass lesbians.”
“Queer Trans Women” Men.
Morgan M Page. Such is Stonewall’s arrogance, Professor Rapeinstein is still on their website.
“Overcoming The Cotton Ceiling” So gross they say it twice, with duper’s delight. Remember, cotton ceiling is a spin on the famous feminist concept of the ‘Glass Ceiling’. It refers to women’s underwear and describes what is seen by these straight, fully-intact men as the ‘problem’ of lesbians only wanting to sleep with other women. It’s a disgusting phrase. It’s conversion therapy by rape. This is a class for predators.
“Sexual barriers” Lesbians not wanting to have sex with us on the basis that they’re lesbians and we’re fully-intact males.
Queer Trans Women: Again, men.
Broader Queer Women’s Communities: Lesbians. Again, they’re openly conspiring on how to sexually harass lesbians.
Group discussions: One gets some idea of the nature of these discussions from GNCCentric in her interview with Benjamin Boyce. In it, Benji describes being in a ‘Trans support group’ run by Page. She credibly describes middle-aged ‘trans women’ (men) beginning relationships with much younger transmen (women). In fact, I think it is highly likely that that group came about as a result of the ‘discussions’ in this one.
“Visual representations” “We’re going to look at porn”.
“Strategise ways to overcome them” So I don’t repeat myself again and tell you that they are openly conspiring on how to coerce lesbians into sex, I’ll just share Caroline Lowbridge’s BBC story. Remember, Owen Jones and many others did everything they could to shut this story down.
“Build community” This should terrify everyone. You don’t need men like this" “building communities”.
“Trans women” Men.
“MAAB’ Again, men. They’ve literally just said ’men’ twice. MAAB stands for Male Assigned At Birth.
I guess this makes me smarter than Andrew Hochhauser, QC for Garden Chambers, Allison’s old employers.
We’ve been banging on about Morgan Page on this site for about six years now. I’m desperately hoping Allison Bailey’s testimony brings him the fame he so richly deserves.
All our Morgan Page coverage:
Pride Month is Becoming a Festival of Violent Misogyny (a story about someone else in the ‘community’).
Last word goes to Allison Bailey. Well done, Allison, you’ve had a fantastic week.
