Radical feminist kicked off Baltimore LGBTQ Commission for referring to male rapist as male

Trans ideology has allowed a male rapist into a female prison. It has allowed males to compete in female sports. It has forced women to accept men into showers and locker rooms. It has allowed a man to be named Glamour Magazine’s Woman of the Year. Women who object are vilified and harassed on social media; they lose friends, social standing, and even jobs.

The transgender fiction is too much even for some Leftists.

Last November, a self-described Progressive playwright said she was blacklisted for dissenting from the transgender groupthink.

The latest inmate to break free from the Left’s thought-gulag is self-described radical feminist Julia Beck.

Austin Ruse reports for Crisis Magazine, Feb. 1, 2019, that Julia Beck, a lesbian and a self-confessed “radical feminist”, told her story on a recent Heritage Foundation panel, convened to encourage opposition to a Congressional bill called the Equality Act.

HR 2282, The Equality Act, introduced by Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) — who was the first openly “gay” mayor of a U.S. state capital — would enshrine the transgender ideology into American law under the legal concept of public accommodation, wherein the federal government will take away any and all women-only spaces in the country.

Julia Beck said she was booted from the Baltimore LGBTQ Commission because she referred to a male rapist, who claims to be female, as male. The authorities put the male rapist in a woman’s prison, where he proceeded to rape more women.

The logical question to ask the prison authorities and Baltimore’s LGBTQ Commission is this:

How can a man rape women unless he is male?

For correctly referring to the rapist as male, Beck was accused of “violence” and voted off the LGBTQ Commission. Leading the attack on Beck was the Commission chairman — a man who also claims to be female, and a lesbian.

During the hearing to kick Beck off the LGBTQ Commission:

  • A gay man announced that “biological sex is a thing of the past.” To which Beck sensibly responded, “How can we be homosexual if sex is fake?”
  • Testifying against Beck was a woman who identifies as a man, insisting she is not and had never been a woman despite having a vulva because “It does not make me any less of a man that I have a vulva. It’s there and it’s masculine.” Alas, as described by Beck, the woman-who-calls-herself-a-man had “just survived a hysterectomy and was shaking and complaining of hot flashes.”

Beck told the largely conservative audience at Heritage Foundation:

“There are only three sexualities: homosexual, heterosexual, and bi-sexual. All the hip new identities in the alphabet soup like non-binary, gender fluid, pansexual, are not real sexualities. Sexualities are based on sex while gender identities are based on stereotypes.”

To underscore her point, Beck points out that so-called “trans-women”, i.e., biological males, usually present themselves in the most exaggerated and even grotesque caricatures of women.

Beck was one of four radical feminists on the Heritage panel, all of whom have virtually nothing in common with conservatives other than opposition to the trans ideology.

Beck’s co-panelists also had horror stories to tell:

(1) Jennifer Chavez, of the Women’s Liberation Front, told several stories of desperate mothers whose kids were hijacked into the trans-cult. A 14-year-old girl “spontaneously” decided she was male and, according to her mother, went from a “sweet loving girl to a foul-mouthed hateful pansexual male.” The girl ran away from home and moved to Oregon, where she was given a double mastectomy and a radical hysterectomy, even though she had been diagnosed previously with ADHD, depression, and anxiety. She is now living on the streets and planning a surgery that would take part of her arm in order to create a crude penis with a mechanism to fake an erection.

Chavez said much of this contagion is spread via YouTube and other social media sites by Jazz Jennings and someone named Riley J. Dennis, who is famous for saying it is bigotry for males to avoid sex with “trans-women” such as himself. Dennis, one of the sickest and most dangerous people on social media, has a huge YouTube following where he discusses all manner of vile things such as how to have sex with someone in various stages of “transitioning.” A short clip of Jazz Jennings was shown at Heritage in which he was celebrating his impending castration. It showed a “penis” cake that Jennings gleefully sliced to cheers from his family and friends.

(2) Kara Dansky, also of the Women’s Liberation Front, said that the issue is really about the intellectual bankruptcy of gender identity ideology and the importance of language. No one really knows what these words mean; all definitions of gender identity either reinforce sexist stereotypes or are completely tautological and rely on regressive sex-based stereotypes. Referring to men who identify as female because they see themselves as nurturing and compassionate and like to wear dresses, Dansky said this is insulting to women who worked hard to get into the workplace, dress the way we like, and that women are not defined by what we wear.

Pronoun Tyranny: CA State Senate prohibits “he/she, him/her”

The State of California sinks deeper into radical-left madness and tyranny.

in 2017, California became the first state in the union to create a “non-binary” option for legal documents and drivers licenses, as well as make it a crime for nursing homes (“long-term care facilities”) to use the “wrong” pronouns.

Now, the California State Senate is prohibiting gender-specific pronouns, such as “he/she” or “him/her”.

Amanda Prestigiacomo reports for Daily Wire that on Jan. 17, 2019, Senate Judiciary Committee chair Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) announced that gender-specific pronouns are prohibited during judicial committee hearings. Henceforth, “gender neutral designations” would be used when addressing committee members.

Jackson proclaimed:

“Our first order of business is to approve the committee rules. I’d like to note — in respecting the fact that we are now a state recognizing the non-binary designation as a gender — he and she, we are now merging them so we are using what my grammar teacher would have had a heart attack over: we are using the phrase ‘they’ and replacing other designations so it’s a gender neutral designation: ‘they.’ Basically, that’s the primary reforms and revisions to the committee rules. In the spirit of gender neutrality for the rules of this committee, we now designate the chair as ‘they.’”

Then Jackson proceeded repeatedly to violate its own rule when it said:

“The world is a different place. My grammar teacher is long gone and we won’t be hearing from her — from them! From they!”

And when it repeatedly used “she” and “her” to promote abortion “rights”, as well as “he” and “his” in reference to another committee member.

Hannah-Beth Jackson, who will be 69 years old in May, has been in the California state legislature since 1998 (State Assembly 1998-2004; State Senate 2012-present). Although it looks like a man, Wikipedia says it is married to retired Santa Barbara County Superior Court Judge George Eskin, with whom it has a daughter, two stepchildren, and six grandchildren.

In 2013, Jackson introduced a bill, SB 113, allowing 16-year-olds to pre-register to vote online. SB 113 was passed and signed into law in 2014, and took effect in 2017. In 2016, Huffington Post named Jackson one of 11 “women” “blazing new trails” in American politics.

Gender Pronoun Tyranny: Professor downgrades student's paper for using the word 'mankind'

Sat, 01 Apr 2017 19:10:21 +0000

When will this madness end?

Shanna Nelson reports for Campus Reform, March 28, 2017, that Cailin Jeffers, an English major at Northern Arizona University, lost credit on an English paper for using the word “mankind” instead of a gender-neutral alternative.

Jeffers said she received an email from her professor, Dr. Anne Scott, that she had been docked one point out of a possible 50 on a recent paper for “problems with diction (word choice)” related to her use of the word “mankind” as a synonym for “humanity.”

Scott wrote:

“I would be negligent, as a professor who is running a class about the human condition and the assumptions we make about being ‘human,’ if I did not also raise this issue of gendered language and ask my students to respect the need for gender-neutral language. The words we use matter very much, or else teachers would not be making an issue of this at all, and the MLA would not be making recommendations for gender-neutral language at the national level.”

After offering Jeffers the opportunity to revise her paper, Scott warned that if Jeffers refuses to change “mankind” to a gender-neutral synonym, “I will still need to subtract a point because your choice will not be made in the letter or spirit of this particular class, which is all about having you and other students looking beneath your assumptions and understanding that ‘mankind’ does not mean ‘all people’ to all people. It positively does not.”

Jeffers told Campus Reform that after the first essay assignment, Scott had given the class “a list of ‘do’s and don’ts” that Scott had found in the student essays. Jeffers said:

“Most of them make sense, just things like ‘make sure you’re numbering your pages’ and ‘cite in proper MLA format,’ but she said we had to be sure to use ‘gender-neutral language’. Included with this rule were several examples of what was and wasn’t okay to use. In one of these examples she stated that we could not use the word ‘mankind.’ Instead, we should use ‘humankind.’ I thought this was absurd, and I wasn’t sure if she was serious.”

So Jeffers decided to test the policy on her next paper by twice writing the word “mankind”. When Jeffer’s paper was docked for using the word “mankind,” she  requested a meeting with Scott. As recounted my Jeffers:

“I stated that I agree with everything she said about my paper except my use of ‘mankind.’ She proceeded to tell me that the NAU English department, as well as the Modern Language Association, are pushing for gender-neutral language, and all students must abide by this. She told me that ‘mankind’ does not refer to all people, only males. I refuted, stating that it DOES refer to all people, [but] she proceeded to tell me that I was wrong, ‘mankind’ is sexist, and I should make an effort to look beyond my preset positions and ideologies, as is the focus of the class.”

Following the meeting with Jeffers, Scott sent an email to the entire class in which she vehemently denied that gender-neutral language is merely a question of “political correctness,” pointing out that both the Modern Language Association and the American Psychological Association have put out guidelines promoting gender-neutral language:

“The issue goes beyond ‘political correctness,’ for my colleagues and I recognize that words help to create our reality, power dynamics, and relationships among people. You are welcome to make a statement about your politics, or conscience, or beliefs by using gender-specific language in your papers, and in many cases gender-specific language is called for, when you can discern with certainty the gender of the characters and author you’re discussing. However, I’ll still have to subtract a point or two for any kind of language that refers to all people as ‘mankind’ or readers as ‘him/he’, for the reasons I’ve outlined carefully above.”

Campus Reform has reached out to Dr. Scott, as well as the Dean of the College that houses the English Department and the English Department Chair, but none had responded by press time.

Here are some student reviews of Anne Scott on Rate My Professors:

“For Prof Scott, political correctness is more important than learning. She’s all about viewpoint discrimination. If you want the grade you deserve, you have to read her mind and reflect what’s in there. And it’s a narrow mind. A definite avoid.”

“Way too liberal even for me. Way too ‘politically correct’ for me. Should focus on Chaucer and forget trying to change the world to her utopian fantasy. The point of college is to train people to think, not tell them what to think.”

“You must be ‘politically correct’ and ‘gender neutral’ at all times or your grades will suffer! Run away!”

“Watch your politics in this class. I had to pretend I believed in the nonsense she spouts. Felt like 1984 in there with all the ivory tower liberal type indoctrination.”

“She’s a proponent of ‘gender neutral language’ going so far as to knock points off of other students’ grades if they do not acquiesce to her brand of politically correct nonsense.”

“This complete joke of a professor goes out of her way to get offended and makes her students suffer for it. She will deduct points unless you agree with her about her left wing social justice warrior viewpoints. Don’t take this professor. She deserves to be fired.”

It is noteworthy that rave reviews of Scott got plenty of thumbs down.

I feel so sorry for our college students . . . .

New ‘pronoun pins’ at U of Kansas let people choose their gender

gender-pins

From Fox News: Kansas University libraries will now offer students, staff and visitors the choice of wearing “gender inclusive” buttons identifying their preferred gender pronouns, in order to help promote a “welcoming environment” on campus.

The buttons, which read, “He/Him/His,” “She/Her/Hers” or “They/Them/Theirs” are part of a year-long effort on behalf of the KU library’s “You Belong Here” marketing campaign touting the school as warm, welcoming, and tolerant.

“Because gender is, itself, fluid and up to the individual, each person has the right to identify their own pronouns, and we encourage you to ask before assuming someone’s gender,” a sign in the library above the available buttons reads, according to local media.

The library signs go on to explain that “misgendering” someone “can be hurtful” and lead to emotional distress as that person contemplates their ultimate exclusion from modern society, or struggle with “invalidation” of their life choices.

KU’s “front line” librarians came up with the idea, and have been wearing the buttons with pride. They say the markers have been so popular that the library has already had to reorder buttons, and that students routinely ask for them.
