I am so fucking pissed off at these "left wing" men who don't even take a second to consider whether they are right before talking over women on this issue.

This guy, Eoin Higgins, was the main person on twitter who disseminated the false narrative that the WiSpa incident was a transphobic hoax. That narrative was later picked up by Salon, The Guardian, and other media outlets, but Higgins was the one who spread that lie first and most widely.

If that weren't bad enough, Higgins was also the main person on twitter who spread the narrative that the Guardian (which blatantly LIED about the WiSpa facts numerous times) was in fact "transphobic" and had engaged in "censorship" for editing the Judith Butler interview they did last month. For those who don't remember, the author of the interview with Butler, Jules Gleeson, originally had a question to Butler about the 'transphobic hoax' at the WiSpa. It was in response to this question with its flawed premise that Butler compared GCs to fascists. Right after the Butler interview came out, an arrest was made in the WiSpa case, and so the Guardian contacted Gleeson about editing the original question to reflect the actual facts in the WiSpa case, rather than spreading a debunked lie. Gleeson refused to edit the question or add a note reflecting the fact that the WiSpa case was NOT a hoax, so the Guardian had no choice but to remove both the question and the answer from Butler. (A decision that many GCs in fact opposed, because they wanted the world to see how insane Butler's comments were.) But Higgins and others immediately pointed to this editorial decision as "transphobic censorship," even though Gleeson was the one who opted against a correction to the facts -- probably because Gleeson (a TIM) didn't want people knowing about the very inconvenient WiSpa case. Higgins was the one who published an interview with Gleeson making the allegation that the Guardian's editorial decision to remove the question and answer was rooted in "transphobia."

Now, Higgins is playing the victim because the Guardian has demanded he retract claims that "transphobes" are the "dominant faction" in the leadership of the Guardian newsroom.

Seriously, fuck this fucking guy. This man is such a misogynist that he has managed to get deep in the weeds of this issue without ever considering the positions of any actual female people besides Judith Butler, and has no compunctions about spreading misinformation, covering up for a sexual predator, and slandering actual journalists.

As a left-wing woman, I'm flaming mad and I plan to email him and tell him why. Helpfully, his email is right in his twitter bio if you want to join me.

Left, right, center, non-political, ALL MEN talk over women (with the rare little mousy guy who won't say boo, which is its own kind of annoying, but....)

This dude, however -- what is his OBSESSION with defending male sexual fetish?

No normal man makes an effort to defend transvestite sexual fetishes.

A regular guy might say "so what if guys watch porn? Strip clubs are no big deal. Prostitutes provide a service!" and show they couldn't care less about women and haven't thought it through AT ALL. (But as soon as he sees the unhappy look on the face of the woman he's interested in, he will back pedal. "Oh I mean...some guys like strip clubs, but not me....")

But a regular guy does NOT create his own Substack to go on and on and ON about "evil" women who are "anti-trans." They just don't.

In fact, regular men do NOT defend "trans" at all. They defend things THEY like (naked women, sex, porn) but NOT other men's masturbation habits.

These Wokebros are deep DEEP in the cult. They pretend they are on the "Left" but it's like the way AGP pretend they are "LGB" -- the Left already existed, was large, powerful, well-funded, well-organized, so the Woke Cultists just attached themselves like the parasites they are.

The Left needs to DENOUNCE the Woke Cult, same as LGB needs to denounce the T.

Great points. I think with Eoin it's worth noting that this is not the only issue he writes about. It seems like he jumped on this issue with zero thought or curiosity or learning about the raging debate on it in the UK, and saw that writing about it was a great way to get clicks and Owen Jones retweets. And a lot of men in the media care more about retweets than they do about women.

That sounds about right. My first thought reading the linked tweets was that he’s just loving the attention.

Trans ideology gives woke bros a "legitimate" and socially acceptable way to hate women. They can let their inner misogynist out and still be considered "nice", "woke", "feminist" "inclusive".
