The people at Public Space One promote and enable the Transgender Ideology which underlies the eugenic medical abuse of gay and lesbian children. This is the response I received to the blog post I wrote about the man pretending to be the opposite sex, who is one of their members.in an desperate attempt to get their attention and inform them about how their misogynist and anti-life beliefs are affecting kids.

I guess loyalty to his man friend is more important than looking at the evidence that he is complicit in the medical abuse of children.

Dear Jeanne,
As much as I’d like to engage and debate the information you continue to send us and put out into the world, I’m going to keep this short and to the point:
• Please stop emailing us links, articles, and anything related to your transphobic beliefs
• Please stop putting your stickers and images over the signs at the Wesley Center and targeting us with this ongoing harassment
• Please stop targeting Violet, one of our long-time members and friend, with your harassment and intolerant beliefs
Finally I would ask you to examine your position and see the world as more complicatedly-beautiful than it is cut-and-dry. As I aim to do my part in creating open space, resources, and platforms for a lot of people (a public space), intolerance is the one thing that will not be tolerated. The information you have created and repeatedly directed at us trades in this, and because of this, I am asking you TO STOP harassing us (the Wesley Center, Public Space One, the IC Press Co-op, and Violet) and to quite spreading this trauma and hate, in person at our building and online at your blog.
Best,
J

Don’t Treat Feminist Poster Campaign as a “Crime”

For the attention of Joe Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool and Chief Constable, Andy Cooke,

Dear Mr Anderson and Mr Cooke,

I write to you in regard to the recent poster/sticker campaign in Merseyside by the feminist group Liverpool ReSisters who have been printing and distributing small stickers of pink penises with the words “women don’t have penises” written on them.

As you know, this campaign was organised as part of the ideological battle between certain feminists and transgender right activists.

When alerted to this campaign Merseyside police said “Hi, thanks for the tag, I can confirm we are aware of this matter and enquiries are being made.” (I address you Mr Cooke as a representative of Merseyside police department)

And you, Mr Anderson the elected Mayor of Liverpool said: “We will remove stickers and work with the Police to identify those responsible.”

In another context, this situation, and your reactions, would be considered satire. Sadly though, this is anything but a joke.

A group of feminists have stated a biological reality, which the vast majority of us would have thought should be so obvious as to be not worth stating. However, both you Mr Anderson and the Merseyside police department apparently believe this might constitute a crime.

The situation really does beggar belief and raises serious questions about the priorities and competencies of local politicians and the police department.

This progressive political posturing is beneath the dignity of your office Mr Anderson, but sadly something many have come to expect from our political class.

Even more significantly, this is a monumental waste of police time and represents a sinister politicisation of the police service by turning ordinary political activism into crime. The police service should not be engaging in the monitoring of ideological or political “crimes” and that is exactly what this is. To make “enquiries” about the stickers from Liverpool ReSisters, supposes that this might be an actual crime, and it could only possibly be a crime of a political nature.

I demand that the Mayor and Merseyside police department cease treating this event as if it were a crime. To do so not only makes a mockery of the offices each of you hold, but also represents a sinister politicisation of the police force by potentially turning ordinary political activism into crime.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]

Gender Fascism And The Elderly Female Artist

IMG_0554[1]

BIRTH, oil on canvas, 24″x24″, by JEANNE

Yesterday there was a “networking event’ at the School of Art and Art History at UIOWA, where I am currently attending classes. I chose not to attend because of an experience I’d had the evening before. I had attended a lecture by a talented and energetic woman  who runs an art foundation that supports artists who have a vision for creating community through their art. I respected what this woman was doing and I don’t intend my remarks to disparage her personally. In fact I’m grateful that she helped clear up a problem that has been dogging my heels and interfering with my ability to set goals with respect to my art practice.

I had been fairly proactive about promoting my art and my vision, submitting artwork to various venues and even having a show at a local community center and a booth at the annual art’s festival here in town. But lately, I have been passing up opportunities that have arisen and not understanding why I seemed to be sabotaging myself. Partly, it was because I did decide to put my daily quota of creative energy into learning art in my classes, rather than creating items, like greeting cards, to sell at the farmer’s market. But, it was more than that, a kind of miasma had come over me, a reluctance to reach out and show my stuff in public.

What turned the light on for me was that the woman who came to speak about her foundation work used words like “sex positive”, “sex worker”, “deconstruction”, and “gender identity”  when describing the projects she was involved with. It made me uncomfortable and it wasn’t until the next day that I understood why, and why I decided to skip the networking event.

IMG_1168I had joined a local arts cooperative when I first landed in this city because I was eager to learn as much as I could about the processes and materials involved in art-making.   I know that we are killing the world with carbon and I wanted to make art about that and other human pain issues that seem to be being repressed and hidden by this culture. I hung in as long as I could, but eventually I was forced to confront gender fascism within the group and I had to separate myself from the group. On the positive side, I can say that this experience helped me confront the ugly truth about gender identity ideology and stop enabling this dysfunctional ideology.

But it turns out that the entire art world, art business, art community, has been infected by the virus of gender fascism and I will not be able to be a part of it unless I LIE ABOUT OBJECTIVE REALITY. Which I can’t do, because my art is based in facing the ugly truth about male superiority and gender fascism is just another patriarchal mindfuck.  I know gender identity ideology  is fascism because it’s about shutting women up and depriving them of access to resources.

I am being prevented from accessing resources and from benefiting from my labor because elderly women are invisible and have no status in this culture and because I refuse to go along with the mass delusion that prostitution is a free choice (and not the same old fucking female slavery as always) and that the sexes are interchangeable based on one’s whim;  that people, other than the tiny minority with a chromosomal mutation that causes sterility, can be both sexes, or neither, on different days.

It is sobering to know that sexism and it’s adjunct,  ageism,  is alive and well in the art world and I am being oppressed by it and by the artsy people who believe they are social justice warriors. They regard me with contempt and believe they are morally superior to me and oh so woke.

As for me, it’s back to the drawing board, where I find my Source.

A woman is never at home within patriarchy. I have been a wanderer since I emerged from my mother’s body. This blog is about my intergalactic journey wherein I am always coming home. I write about women,  social justice, political acts, the sado-psychiatric system, and ecology. I use this page to display the art that I do that has saved my life and given me a way to voice my visions.  I take pictures,  I make pictures and protest signs, I am a fan of outsider art and public art.
