Action for Trans Health @edinburghath @act4transhealth Defends Violence Against Women (U.K.)

Edinburgh Action for Trans Health, “a local chapter of the national org, fighting for democratic access to health care and trans liberation,” published a series of tweets defending violence against women and comparing feminist women to Nazis.  The tweets assert the view that “violence against terfs is always self defense” regardless of who initiates the altercation.

These statements were made shortly following a violent incident in which a member of ATH, Tara Flik Wood, punched a woman, Maria MacLachlan, in the face because he didn’t agree with what MacLachlan had to say.  He is also active on Twitter, where prior to the violent encounter he posted “Any idea where/if this is happening. I wanna fuck some terfs up, they are no better than fash,” indicating he intended to commit violence against women when he attended the event.

Violence against women is never defensible, regardless of women’s opinions or any other fact.  There is no excuse for violence against women, ever.  The fact that “The UK’s largest campaign for democratic trans health care” publicly supports violence against women clearly indicates that trans activism is misogyny.

Lauren Jeska (U.K.)

Lauren Jeska, a man who identifies as a transgender woman, was sentenced to 18 years in prison for the attempted murder of Ralph Knibbs, a UK Athletics official at a stadium in Birmingham.

In an unprovoked display of male violence, Jeska “stabbed Knibbs multiple times in the head and neck after a dispute over whether she should be able to compete in women’s races.”

Unfortunately, Jeska is likely to serve this sentence in a women’s prison, in violation of the UN’s Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners.

Lesbisk Bevegelse (Norway)

Norwegian lesbian organization Ny Lesbisk Bevegelse (New Lesbian Movement), formerly Lesbisk Forbund (Lesbian Federation), has recently been accused of “transphobia” and has submitted the following public statement in response:

Hi, Here is our official statement in English. Thanks for talking about it:-) Lesbisk Forbund (Lesbian Federation) has been accused of being hateful and transphobic after Tonje Gjevjon’s gender critical articles in Norwegian national media during the last six months, for discussing potential consequences of trans activism and the New Gender Identity Law. Trans activists’ name calling invalidates and blurs an important and timely discussion. We do acknowledge trans persons and their common rights, which are the same as we all have – regardless of sex, gender identity and sexual orientation. However, we separate from the LGBT (+) movement, especially regarding the definition of sex. From our perspective, sex is about biology. Most people are born female or male. Some people are born with undefined sex characteristics, they are usually assigned a sex at birth. Sex is objective, sex is the foundation of society’s power structures. Gender identity on the other hand, is subjective – and we recognize that gender identity does not always match a person’s sex. Increasingly, the LGBT (+) movement divides women into two groups: cis women and women. Hence, trans persons are the template of which so-called cis women deviate from. Our perspective is on the contrary that women who are born female are women. It all boils down to the existence of different understanding and different perspectives on sex and gender, and we believe that such inequalities must be acknowledged and recognized and that a debate and discussion should take place without threats and name calling.
Lesbisk Forbund is no longer a part of the LGBT (+) movement. We belong to the women’s movement, and we will work for women’s rights. Therefore, we are changing our name and organization – from Lesbisk Forbund (Lesbian Federation) to Ny Lesbisk Bevegelse (New Lesbian Movement). We will no longer be a member organization, but rather a network for lesbian women who sympathize with our political platform. We will contribute to visualization at a time when women in general, lesbian women in particular, are being made invisible.

Laurelai Bailey @stuxnetsource @laurelaiissexy (Internet)

Laurelai Bailey, a man who identifies as a transgender woman, was suspended from Twitter for inciting violence against women.

He incorrectly asserts he was “silence[d]” for “standing up to TERFs,” and appears to believe he has the right to encourage people to “whap the next terf who says shit” while facing no consequences for such expressions. Trans activism is misogyny.

We support the use of the reporting feature to alert Twitter of users who are employing their platform to encourage others or express their own desires to commit violence against women.






Tara Flik Wood (U.K.)


another violent male who thinks he’s a woman

Tara Flik Wood is a man who identifies as a transgender woman. He’s the man who punched a 60yo woman, Maria MacLachlan, in the face as part of his protest against feminist women gathering to discuss the topic of gender at Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park, London.

It is worth noting that Wood was attempting to steal or destroy MacLachlan’s camera, which she was using to record the event. Angry at MacLachlan for questioning the protesters assertion that “TERFs” were “attacking,” and upset at her for recording the public protest in a public space, he punched her in the face and successfully broke her camera. Of course, someone else at the event videotaped the incident, in which Wood can be seen lunging at and battering MacLachlan.

It is also worth noting that he Tweeted before the event, saying “Any idea where/if this is happening. I wanna fuck some terfs up, they are no better than fash.” He went to the event with the intention to harm the women present there whose opinions did not conform to his own. Male violence, disguised as activism.

Tara Flik Wood punched a woman in the face because he disagreed with her opinion and her right to gather in public with others to discuss that opinion. Trans activism is misogyny.
