Hollis Lichen Proffitt has started a Change.org petition to stop women and men from meeting to discuss Gender. The petition relies on a number of lies to encourage signers to support censorship. Transgender activists regularly work to censor voices that differ from the mainstream conservative Transgender Agenda.
Among the lies in the petition:
“Radical Feminists are often a bigger threat to the safety and dignity of trans women that society at large.” – Here, he erases the fact that males violence is the #1 killer of transwomen.
“Radical Feminist Sheila Jefferies convinced congress to cancel a plan to cover gender-related healthcare for those suffering from gender dysphoria.” – This never happened. Sheila Jeffreys doesn’t live in the United States.
“Cathy Brennan, a prominent lawyer, wrote to the UN asking them not to extend human rights to transgender people.” – this also never happened. The letter, which notes that over broad gender identity laws hurt women, actually says:
We fully support anti-discrimination protections for transgender and transsexual people that do not run rough-shod over laws that protect females. We support the following definition of “gender identity” – a person’s identification with the sex opposite her or his physiology or assigned sex at birth, which can be shown by providing evidence including, but not limited to, medical history, care or treatment of a transsexual medical condition, or related condition, as deemed medically necessary by the American Medical Association.” Such a definition would protect the classification of sex, while simultaneously providing a cause of action for discriminatory practices on the basis of a persistent and documented “gender identity.” We welcome people who fit into this definition into space segregated by sex in recognition of their perceived need for access and in the fervent hope that we can achieve such protection for identifiably transgender or transsexual people without harming females.
“Radfems scour the Internet, hunting for trans women to harass, making the Internet unsafe for trans women who might have no other community. Cathy Brennan posts naked pictures of trans women online in order to shame them.” – the author fails to note that these “transwomen” regularly harass women online, and one need not “scour” the Internet to find the perverted selfies these men post.
“The Radical Feminist organization Deep Green Resistance, from which there will be two speakers at the Radfems Respond conference, have also publicly posted naked pictures of local trans women from Eugene, and joined with Cathy Brennan in creating a false accusation against a trans woman for harassing another woman in a restroom.” – again, another assertion not based in fact.
Trans Activists do not have to ever prove their assertions, as they are supported by conservative GLBT and Mainstream Media in their goal to destroy the ability of Women to meet as and with other Women.
