Grace Lavery posts a screenshot allegedly saying Kathleen Stock will be taking the rest of the semester off (I haven't seen it anywhere else) with the caption: "The story out of Sussex seems to be that Kathleen Stock has withdrawn from teaching after the UCU refused to support her claim of harassment. The UCU didn’t call for her resignation; she had the support of her admin. Looks more to me like she jumped than was pushed."

Can we take a moment to notice how incredibly vile the choice of expression is? He's using an expression that alludes to suicide when discussing someone who is currently being bullied into panic attacks. Transwomen's lack of empathy for women knows no bounds.

Idk man, if someone spent years being bullied and lied about by a vicious and relentless mob, and then "decided" to "jump" one day... I'd say the mob and its ringleaders are maybe just a tiny fucking bit responsible. I'd be pretty comfortable saying there was a "push", even if it wasn't directly physical.

To be clear, I don't know what the situation is, whether that screenshot is real, etc etc. Dr. Stock is a badass no matter what decision she makes. But what a vile human being you have to be to talk about her that way at this time.

Lavery is a fucking disgusting psychopath.

[–] MsJender 17 points (+17|-0)

He is one of the VERY WORST of all the TRAs. I fucking hate him.

I would feel so unsafe if I was a student at Berkeley even if he wasn't my teacher. I can't fathom why a professor would be allowed to teach vulnerable students while spouting that venom on a Twitter thats linked to his work.

I wouldn't be surprised if Lavery has multiple sexual violations against him and the school just covers it up because trans

Also, could you imagine if a conservative or radfem professor laughed about some trans educator being harassed by a mob until they "quit" their job under duress? They'd be burned at the fucking stake!

Right! he writes and says the vilest things about women. I have no idea why Lavery gets even an ounce of respect or employment.

[–] RawSienna 6 points (+6|-0) Edited

I wouldn’t be surprised to see him in the news for disturbing shit at some point. Not surprised at all. He wallows in misogyny and gets off on rubbing women’s faces in it.

Edit: my first merch in my future TERFsy store will be a dartboard with his face on it.

I think the respect he gets comes from equally sociopathic assholes, and the employment is more of a "we are forced to keep you otherwise we are ruined" than anything else.

I think he’s always been incredibly jealous of Kathleen Stock. I read about how he threw a social media hissy fit when she was awarded an OBE. Something Joe Lavery will never get!😂 I think that Stock is everything Joe Lavery desperately wants to be, but never will: a pretty lesbian who’s respected in her field and honored by the queen in Joe Lavery’s own country. Also, she’s an Oxford grad like himself, so he can’t hold that over her.

I’ve noticed that Joe Lavery seems to get insanely jealous of attractive, intelligent, witty lesbians who are actual lesbians and no straight women like his TiF wife. From the Kiwifarms thread on him, he’s particularly vicious on - where else? - twitter, when it comes to a particular type of young lesbian writer, academic or journalist who’s successful in her field and who would also NEVER have anything to do with a gross, perverted man like him - Stock, Bari Weiss, Katie Herzog. I strongly suspect that’s the kind of woman he desperately wants, but knows will never, ever get. His “girlfriend”, though physically attractive enough, is just an unknown academic at a midwestern university; and his wife, though a decent writer, is a deeply troubled woman who’s unsuccessfully trying to transition into a man, which is something I suspect is exacerbated by living with Joe Lavery.

Joe’s just an angry, pathetic AGP who hates both himself and the women he’ll never get.

Imagine a female professor acting like Joe Lavery does and what would happen to her. A woman who looked like Joe Lavery and talked as much shit as he does would have already been dragged off of Twitter. The male left gets off on tormenting lesbians even the ones on their side and it’s so sick. This is why it doesn’t hurt my feelings one bit to be “inhumane.” Giving men quarter and understanding and tolerance always backfires.

It's simple, a female wouldn't be allowed to be a professor at all if they behaved like he does. He's such a bad joke made at all women's expense

Joseph Lavery is one of the greasiest narcs to have ever been spewn out of the trans community. He needs to get over the fact he's a sadsack pseudo-intellectual in a straight relationship.

No real woman would be able to post pictures of them degrading their spouse sexually and retain their job. I honestly can't fathom how he continues to get away with embarrassing his faculty daily. He's abusive as fuck and couldn't shine Stock's shoes.

[–] NotCis 26 points (+26|-0)

I would be so humiliated to be his partner - he literally has "horny" as his self-descriptor in his Twitter bio. I'm cringing in secondhand embarrassment for both of them.

[–] Ave_Lucifuge 14 points (+14|-0)

His partner used to be an outspoken, hilarious feminist comedian that ripped into entitled men. How she ended up with this shit peninsula is a mystery for the ages.

[–] OurLady 13 points (+13|-0)

He's like a teenage boy proudly showing the porn on his phone to his classmates, but far less affable and far more dangerous

[–] NotCis 29 points (+29|-0)

Lavery, if you're reading this, please know we all view you as a sick, pathetic man. That's all.

[–] TerfSedai 24 points (+24|-0)

I mean this is a man who essentially groomed his previously lesbian partner into transitioning, so expectations are low to start.

He's also been obsessively tweeting about her and throwing a tantrum about University of Sussex supporting her https://twitter.com/graceelavery/status/1448348594701017088. Narcissistic fury at being defied by a woman.

Kind of awkward Greased Larvae (I'll give him credit, accurate nickname) makes a suicide by jumping reference after the Chappelle special just came out and Chappelle talked about his trans woman friend being possibly bullied into suicide by jumping by TRA Twitter.

A little damage control on Joe's mind, perhaps? "Oh it can't possibly be that those of us calling for violence against people over the internet can force their hand, they act of their own volition!"

TIMs constantly screech that every little dip in their own psychological state is everyone else's fault. I'm actually not surprised that sauce for the transgoose isn't also sauce for the goose in this case; the male/female double standard remains in effect as usual, as does the male complete lack of empathy toward anyone female.

"Transgoose" just launched me into a fit of uncontrollable laughter. Well done!

Also notice how Lavery wants to be the bearer of the news about her status. They want to take away womens' actual voices so that all news goes through them. They do this disinformation tactic all the time (doctored tweets, straight up lying about what someone has done or said) and the purpose is to make women unreliable narrators of their own experience.
