Cathy Brennan is a lesbian activist based in Maryland who has worked on resolving the tension between gender identity and women’s rights since the mid-1990s. This is an interview from August 2018 regarding her work to create the Pussy Church of Modern Witchcraft, the first women-only lesbian feminist religious organization to be granted 501(c)(3) status by the IRS.
A group of trans activists in New Zealand organizing in under the name “Trans Dignity Collective” submitted a proposal to the Ministry of Health, proposing that references to a patient’s biological sex be omitted from medical records because the concept of biological sex is “derogatory” to trans people. Even a field for “biological sex recorded at birth” (and presumably fields for “gender identity” and “pronouns”) is “particularly bad as it implies a fixed concept that cannot be changed.” It’s almost like they understand that biological sex is a material reality one can’t simply identify in or out of. Imagine that. Continue reading “Trans Dignity Collective (New Zealand)”
Glen Robert Askeborn, also known as Samantha Glenner, is a man that identifies as a woman.
A dishonorably discharged veteran, Askeborn was booted from the Navy for scalding his young stepson in a tub of hot water. He then served part of a six year prison sentence for a pair of robberies.
A news article in People Magazine describes Askeborn’s history as such: “Around 1980 he began living as the woman he had decided he was. He wore makeup, short shorts and high heels, and affected a huge artificial bustline.” People interviewed for the story said Askeborn would try to talk in a woman’s voice and would get upset if they didn’t call him Samantha.”
Describing his belief of being a woman, Askeborn said of his military service in Vietnam: “he didn’t know what had happened to him, but he liked it.”
Eventually, Askeborn landed at his parent’s Maine home, where he went on to murder female victim Amelia Cave. Investigators found Cave’s body buried partly beneath a stone wall. Her head had been covered with a plastic bag, her wrists were bound with nylon cord, her ankles were bound with packing twine and her mouth had been stuffed with an empty birdseed bag. Cave had been beaten as well as strangled.
According to police, Askeborn is a suspect in the murder of a yet to be identified woman in Connecticut.

Queer Danelle Wylder and heterosexual Corrie Westing are two anti-woman activists who recently wrote this pile of lies for a Socialist website. In 2014, Danelle’s partner, Judy Heithmar, previously wrote a similar pile of lies for the same website. We previously wrote about Judy’s piece of shit here. Judy apparently is nonbinary now and goes by the also fake name Judy Luxemburg on Facebook. It is likely Judy actually penned Danelle’s current article. You can read both articles below.
