Consultation Questions

Dear Minister for Women and Equalities,

• I support the right of transgender people to live safely and free from the discrimination they experience because they identify as transgender.

• I also support the right of women to live safely and free from the discrimination they experience because they were born into the female sex.

• However, no increase in the legal rights of transgender people should come at the expense of women’s existing legal rights, or diminish in any way a woman’s right to safety, privacy or fairness.


MY VIEWS ON CHANGES TO THE GENDER RECOGNITION ACT ARE AS FOLLOWS.

I HAVE LIMITED MY RESPONSES TO QUESTIONS 3, 9, 12, 13a, 14, 15, 19, 20 AND 22 AS THESE CONCERN ME THE MOST.


Q3. Do you think there should be a requirement in the future for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria?

Yes

Please explain the reasons for your answer

If doctors, diagnoses and medical reports aren’t part of the checking process it means anyone can declare themselves male or female and no one can say otherwise. it leaves the system open to abuse by anyone, for any reason.


Q9. Do you think the privacy and disclosure of information provisions in section 22 of the Gender Recognition Act are adequate ?

No

If no, how do you think it should be changed ? Birth sex should never be confidential when a male-born person is attempting to access a female-only space.


Q12. Do you think that the participation of trans people in sport, as governed by the Equality Act 2010, will be affected by changing the Gender Recognition Act ?

Yes

Please give reasons for your answer

I do not support any changes that would increase the number of people gaining a GRC because it will be more difficult to exclude male-born people from female-only sports if more male-born people have birth certificates saying they were born female.


Q13a. Do you think that the operation of the single-sex and separate-sex service exceptions in relation to gender reassignment in the Equality Act 2010 will be affected by changing the Gender Recognition Act ?

Yes

Please give reasons for your answer

I do not support any changes that would increase the number of people gaining a GRC because it will be more difficult to exclude male-born people from female-only spaces if more male-born people have birth certificates saying they were born female.


Q14. Do you think that the operation of the occupational requirement exception in relation to gender reassignment in the Equality Act 2010 will be affected by changing the Gender Recognition Act ?

Yes

Please give reasons for your answer

I do not support any changes that would increase the number of people gaining a GRC because it will be more difficult to exclude male-born people from female-only occupations if more male-born people have birth certificates saying they were born female.


Q15. Do you think the operation of the communal accommodation exception in relation to gender reassignment in the Equality Act 2010 will be affected by changing the Gender Recognition Act ?

Yes

Please give reasons for your answer

I do not support any changes that would increase the number of people gaining a GRC because it will be more difficult to exclude male-born people from female-only accommodation if more male-born people have birth certificates saying they were born female.


Q19. Do you think that changes to the Gender Recognition Act will impact on areas of law and public services other than the Equality Act 2010 ?

Yes

Please give reasons for your answer

I do not support any changes that reduce eligibility requirements for a legal transition because it will mean more male-born prisoners requesting transfer into a women’s prison.


Q20. Do you think that there needs to be changes to the Gender Recognition Act to accommodate individuals who identify as non-binary ?

No

If you would like to, please expand upon your answer

A persons legal sex must continue to be limited to either male or female.


Q22. Do you have any further comments about the Gender Recognition Act ?

Yes

If you answered yes, please add your comments.

A comprehensive, evidence-based equality impact assessment on all protected characteristics must be published before a draft bill is presented to parliament. All stakeholders must be engaged to get evidence of impact.

Child Castration/Clitoridectomy Specialists

46362786_2371731056174634_8114230100263698432_nI looked up the bios of the doctors who are performing experiments on children’s reproductive organs  locally, here in Iowa City.  Children are too young to understand what gender roles mean and too young to give consent to be experimented on and sterilized. They look like normal people, but I know they are reckless and opportunistic monsters performing medical eugenics experiments on kids who are confused by our violent and sexist gender hierarchy system. This is all about money and power dressed up in virtue signalling about children’s distress.

And this is the propaganda that is being pushed in IOwa schools in order to drive business to the UIHC  Pediatric Sex Organ Destruction Clinic:

Transgender Rights and The Iowa Sexual Assault Coalition.

39811067_10156573534564844_1405198348746489856_nThis is an exchange I recently had with the director of The Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault  after I had been banned from their facebook site for my inflammatory comments that women don’t have penises and that men who say they are women are just as dangerous to women in vulnerable spaces as any other man.  They spoke to me in a manner I consider very condescending and of course they centered the feelings of men with psychosexual  disorders over the truth. I publish these exchanges because I want there to be a record of how people enabled the  eugenic sterilization of gender non-conforming children and blithely supported the erasure of women’s rights under the onslaught of the new patriarchal gender cult.

Subject: Transgender Rights and the Elimination of the Rights of Women

Hello Elizabeth Barnhill,

In 1985 sued my father for sexually assaulting me from my infancy until age 12. I was silenced by the courts because of the statute of limitations and so I went to the Vermont State Legislature and asked them to consider changing the laws on child sex abuse. Which they finally did, after 20 years. I worked in the domestic violence field supporting sexual assault survivors for 30 years.  I am writing to you today to complain that I have been blocked from commenting on your organization’s Facebook page because I know that thoughts in a man’s head do not change his sex and that declaring oneself to be transgender does not change a man’s propensity toward male pattern violence. I am no longer able to attend support groups for rape survivors at RVAP because I have been informed I must accept that men are women if they say they are.

This is my account of my experience as an incest victim and the lawsuit I tried to bring against my abuser.

https://jeannesjive.wordpress.com/2012/01/04/jeannes-jive/

I posted a number of links to your Facebook page that describe the problem of allowing men who say they are women into protected female spaces (such as locker rooms, bathrooms, and domestic violence shelters) and I was silenced for daring to tell the truth. The feelings of men with sexual paraphilias and psychosexual personality disorders apparently take precedence over factual reality and the hard research that I as a female survivor of 12 years of sexual slavery and battery and a lifelong activist for the rights of women and children tried to present to your organization.

This is a list of the rights of women which are being destroyed by transgender activism:

This is a cross-dressing billionaire who will be profiting from mutilating and sterilizing gender non-conforming children. He owns pharmaceutical stock and will make money on the industrial cross sex hormones they are shooting kids up with
https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20160623/streeterville/billionaire-jennifer-pritzker-helps-fund-clinic-for-trans-kids-at-lurie/

Right here in Iowa City they are performing eugenic experiments on kids. There is no long term research into the effects of this terrible medical fad. But they are just kids so they are disposable, right? As long as medical corporations are raking in the dough nobody better question this.

The director’s reply:

Elizabeth Barnhill director@iowacasa.org via iowa.onmicrosoft.com

Hi Jeanne,
Thank you for writing to let us know of your concerns. You have been through a lot in your lifetime and worked hard to get laws and systems to change. Thank you for all of your work.

We don’t agree that all transwomen are inherently dangerous and harmful to others, hence our social media policy, which says

“IowaCASA will not tolerate any kind of posts, links to articles on our page, or commentary that may be viewed as hurtful, harmful, or derogatory to any group of people. If a person continues to post remarks that may be viewed as hurtful, harmful, or derogatory, IowaCASA has the right to ban the person from the page.”

We know that you may want to comment on various issues related to sexual assault. If you would agree not to post and/or link to commentary that is derogatory to transpeople, we would agree to remove the block from your account.

I’m not able to speak to the decision made by RVAP, but would encourage you to have further discussion with them, if you have not. They likely have a similar policy about restricting derogatory remarks about any group of people.

We wish you well in your work,

Beth

 

An Example Of Female Erasure In Action

images.jpgA message from Ruth Rhiannon Barrett, editor of Female Erasure: What You Need To Know About Gender Politics’ War On Women, The Female Sex And Human Rights:

Last week I was de-platformed/terminated after being hired to be the featured presenter (full concert and workshops) at Gaea Goddess Gathering in Kansas this fall. A person complained, calling me a TERF, and asked that they fire me. They did. They did even after I disclosed my work with Women’s Mysteries and natal females, so that they would know going in who I am. I also made sure that they knew that I am going to be respectful of the intention that any festival has that I’m hired to present. My work there wasn’t going to be about, nor discuss trans anything. Their Board approved me. Then it all came down yesterday when someone complained (they quoted from the Female Erasure anthology). Although the Gathering didn’t’ give me the cause of termination in writing (I have asked for this in writing since yesterday), however it is clear that I was fired for having a different point of view, and in these times of fascistic politics on both the left and the right, intolerance for thinking or believing differently is punished.

I have already read discussions about the erasure of the Goddess, that the use of “She” as “transphobic”, so this is a heads-up for all of us who have been through the erasure of the Goddess though-out history. When the female sex is already being erased though the language we can or cannot use to describe our female biology, our rites of passage, and oppression, the Goddess is next. Please be or stay awake with this. It is here already.

cropped-FBBackgroundLogo.jpgI have been asked, “how can I/we support you?” Contact this festival FB- Gaea Goddess Gathering, www.gaeagoddessgathering.org, email is info@gaeagoddessgathering.org, phone is 816-602-8333. You can also contact the Gaea Retreat Center where they hold this event at 25110 235th st. McLouth, KS 66054. Let them know that this kind of treatment is unacceptable, and share with organizations/groups that you know. Please, if you wish to offer support, only use language that supports us, as we don’t need to lower ourselves to their level of crap (name calling, etc). I am including the quotes that was posted online and now removed that instigated my termination. How ironic that the very issues the people mentioned as examples of why I shouldn’t be there, are exactly why we need to be having the conversations! That person thinks that censorship rather than discussion is the right thing to do. We must continue to have the conversations about our separate spaces, the medicalization of children, and the rest. Thank you for being there. Thanks for listening.

In Her Service,
Ruth Rhiannon Barrett

I was called a TERF and they listed these lines as examples of why I should be fired.

“Concerns about sterilization and a lifetime of dependence on pharmaceuticals and with no long-term studies of the health impact, are silenced. Young lesbians and gay boys can be “normalized” by transitioning them. The possibility that homophobia is playing out in this issue seems to be too taboo to discuss.” Ruth Barrett, Female Erasure

We need more discussions not censorship or religious persecution.
