Frankly, the inclusion of TiMs on "Women's hour" and our great and "impartial" national broadcaster's refusal to cover ANY gender-critical views or voices had me teetering on the brink, but today, I finally had enough on seeing yet another story about how great it is to deny your biology in the "Must see" section of the BBC News website. [https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-57275103] Request to cancel my TV licence submitted shortly thereafter. Am I alone?

I cancelled my TV license ages ago. They are so biased, it's not worth watching.

Ha! I was listening to women's hour yesterday and the TIM segment came on, I can't even remember what they were highlighting about him this time, nth man to achieve something-or-other, after talking to a female astrophysicist who faced doubt and skepticism of her work and prevailed. I just switched it off because WTF.

It was about his book “How it Feels for a Girl” and about how his puberty - spent, as he says, as a “rent boy” (an underage prostituted male) masturbating old men in public toilets - is a girl’s puberty.

Also ignoring the many racist slurs his book uses for Black and Asian people, and his participation in a violent crime (the victim died) for which he did time.

Naturally the presenter has tweeted that people questioning any of this are being “hateful” and “transphobic”.

Why am I not surprised? Roseanne Barr gets fired/cancelled for a drunken Twitter joke.. Gina Carrano gets the same treatment for making a pronoun joke in response to TRA harassment. And Ellen DeGeneres' reputation & career is ruined because she was a shitty boss and a diva. But a man in a dress can LITERALLY KILL SOMEONE IN A VIOLENT CRIME and get treated like a hero!

But trans-women are just like us (except more oppressed)!!! And if you disagree, I'll dox you and get you fired. Because oppressed people historically had the power to do that!!

I was trying to read some feminist articles today, specifically criticizing the #notallmen and how it is all men under patriarchy and every single time they included transwomen, one went so far as to say agender and all genders as well as use the phrase "not-men" because that's all we are appearently. And these were articles claiming to teeter to a more radicalist feminist view. Fucking appalling.
