There is something very intimidating about that sentence isn’t there? “we know who you are.” If what has been happening to the members of Gender Identity Watch in the last few weeks could be summed up in that sentence. Speaking from my own personal experience this isn’t fun, it leads to a sense of anxiety. I’m still worried that my current information may be released and what ramification that may have on myself and loved ones and can only be so thankful that so far I’m in the clear, for now anyway.
Yesterday I found out that something of an “Exposé” had been published online and , with the help of Sophia Daryl Banks (See last few entries) tweeted out this his 9000 twitter followers in hopes of inciting abuse and harassment against the people listed in the document. Of course, Banks, being the utter coward that he is also…

Men’s Rights Activists who identify as women claim to have “doxxed” people who allegedly are part of Gender Identity Watch. Most of the Women “doxxed” are not part of Gender Identity Watch, but simply commented on our Facebook posts. The “doxx” was apparently perpetrated by Allison Woolbert, a man angry at Gender Identity Watch for our observation that his Trans Violence Tracking Portal does not, in fact, name the perpetrators of violence against trans people and instead is a propaganda tool to bludgeon Women into accepting that transwomen are female. Woolbert also claims to have been “outed” by this blog even though (1) he is out as a transwoman and (2) he has spoken publicly about his male existence. Woolbert “shared” a conversation he had with one of the people erroneously identified as a member of this collective on the doxxing blog (we are not linking to the doxxing blog, but we have screencapped the relevant sections). If he did not perpetrate the doxx, Woolbert certainly knows who did. Here is a screenshot of the properties of the shared conversation, which identify Woolbert as the author of the document. You can download the document here and check the properties yourself. Read more…
Transgender activist Akkai Padmashali recently obtained a driver’s license indicating her status as female, thanks to a court decision in April that recognised transgenders as the third gender.
The order also said all identity documents, including birth certificate, passport and driving licence would recognize the third gender, along with male and female.
Akkai said that in all likelihood, she could be the first transgender in the country to get a driver’s license after the apex court judgment. “As the SC order also upheld transgender persons’ right to decide their gender, she preferred “Female” as gender while filling the licence application.

A disturbing new cultural phenomenon is hitting social media. You only become aware of it when you are its victim or its perpetrator. The main victims are feminists. But an ever-increasing pool of twitter users are targeted, including those falling into the bracket of: feminists, radical feminists, followers of radical feminists or feminists on twitter and anyone expressing any kind of sympathy for the radical feminist position that gender is harmful.
That amounts to a large pool of women (and others) who are finding voices to describe, and oppose, patriarchy and who, consequently, are being culturally sidelined.
Here is how it is happening:
If you’re on twitter, you may have noticed there’s an account called @TheBlockBot. If you’re like me, you probably moved swiftly on, with a vague tut, and thought no more about it.
Just recently, however, I’ve been piecing together an ominous pattern of male domination and control…

Legislation to create a city-issued identification card for undocumented New Yorkers and others could benefit transgender New Yorkers as well, by allowing them to self-identify by “gender.”
The municipal identification legislation passed by the City Council in June is primarily geared toward helping expand access to city services for the city’s estimated 500,000 undocumented people. But it extends protections to other groups as well, including transgender New Yorkers who will be able to obtain a city ID that lists their chosen identity.
City officials said they believe the legislation is the first of its kind in the U.S. Other cities, such as Oakland, Calif., have ID programs that don’t require residents to list a gender. In New York, residents can list their gender as they please — man, woman, or something else.
Trudy Kitzmiller & Kristen Skinner are men who identify as women. They recently attempted to have their driver’s license photographs taken at the west Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, but were told they could not get their photographs taken while “dressed as women.”
“Dressed as a woman” is a meaningless statement in that one only understands what being “dressed as a woman” means by understanding sex stereotypes. We support the right of men to be photographed “dressed as women.”
Interestingly, the Transgender Legal Defense Fund – which represents the duo – believes that calling men who identify as women “men” is defamation. As truth is an absolute defense to defamation, one can conclude that the TLDEF believes that calling a male person a man is false if the man says he is a woman.
