good but lenghty take on this issue from LGB Alliance UK
LESBIANS DESPERATELY NEED ...THE LGB ALLIANCE UK.
Since around 2014, organisations and powerful lobbying groups set up for LGBT people, such as Stonewall UK, LGBT umbrella organisations, GLAAD and Pride events et al, have increasingly neglected LGB needs, causes and interests. They have, during this time, increasingly served and promoted Trans Rights and transgenderism, at the expense of and instead of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Rights.
LGB are sexual orientations, whilst Trans is not a sexual orientation and is focused upon gender and gender identities. (Sex stereotypes).
In 2014, these groups started leaving the LGB out and this has escalated over the years to what we have today. A voiceless, toothless and diminished LGB community and a flourishing, thriving and prosperous Trans community.
Lesbians in particular have fared very badly, due to having less power in society because of our sex and issues of sexism and our sexuality.
Lesbians are same sex attracted and female homosexuals. We are therefore exclusively attracted to other women. Stonewall UK et al, in their promotion of Trans Rights, seek to enforce inclusivity. Lesbians and Gays are therefore at odds with this.
As a result, lesbians in particular are being and vilified and demonised by the LGBT community, because we are female homosexuals and same-sex (not gender) attracted and therefore exclusive of men, even if they identify as women. As a result lesbians have been labelled “transphobic bigots” and Trans-exclusionary Radical Feminists (Terfs) and been shunned and turned into social pariahs by Trans Rights Activists. Transgenderism is therefore diametrically opposed to LGB Rights and are homophobic.
Stonewall UK et al, who have huge influence and power, provide “education” in many, if not all of our major institutions, including the police service, the NHS, other service providers and schools. This input is extremely biased towards Trans Rights and teach transgender ideology over the Rights of every other marginalised group in society.
Stonewall UK have also deliberately undermined and tried to erode lesbian’s sexual boundaries and allowed, if not encouraged, Trans Identified Males (trans women), to try to coerce us into accepting them as sexual partners, because these trans women, identify as lesbian women! The majority of trans women , are in fact heterosexual men, with a fetish for lesbians!
The term, “cotton ceiling”, is a play on the similar term the “glass ceiling” and is euphemistically used to describe the concerted efforts and practice of trans women “lesbians”, trying to get beyond the underwear of lesbians. This is gross. It also lends itself to corrective rape and a form of trans conversion therapy.
Stonewall UK have a lot to answer for and are a major part of the literal harassment of lesbians, as they have not challenged this ideology, sexual harassment or indeed told trans women that what they are doing is immoral, homophobic or wrong.
Stonewall UK today, are now, some 6 years later, fixated on promoting Trans Rights and transgender ideology. As a result of this, they are extremely biased against LGB people. They are in fact homophobic and dangerous in particular to lesbians, who will not accept inclusivity, because it is at odds with their innate sexual orientation, of being same sex attracted.
I’m a life-long lesbian and I came out aged 17 in the 1980s. I am an activist both online and in real life. I spent this summer of 2019, protesting a number of Pride events, with other lesbians and allies, from the national feminist group, ReSisters UK.
We were protesting against LGBT alliances, Stonewall UK and the Pride events themselves which were becoming more hostile towards lesbians and becoming immersed in transgender ideology.
We protested for better lesbian visibility, against lesbian erasure and to raise awareness, that as lesbians, we were ONLY same SEX attracted and NOT attracted to those who’s gender was identified as female. We protested that we were “Lesbian and not Queer” and that “lesbians don’t have penises.”
At these events, our peaceful protests, were met with absolute contempt and hatred, by people that had attended and in the main, these were trans allies, heterosexuals, who had taken to calling themselves “Queers”, in order to be considered “transgender” themselves and fit in with the narrative!
We were spat at, had our placards torn and were faced with baying mobs. They were full of hatred for us daring to assert ourselves and our sexual boundaries, that were being eroded by Stonewall and Trans Identified Males and Trans Rights Activists.
At the Lancaster Pride event, the 5 of use who were protesting, were deliberately swamped by trans allies, obscured by trans flags. The police did nothing to keep these trans allies away from us and we were forced to stop, because of intimidation by sheer numbers. We were surrounded by a sea of trans flags and the hateful, mantra shouting mob. The police had to escort us away, for our own safety. We had been silenced at an LBGT Pride event, by trans allies, the majority of whom were straight.
They were horrific experiences to witness and deal with and I won’t ever forget them. At all the Prides that I protested, we were shut-down and intimidated into silence by trans people, gay men, their allies and organisers. We had proved our point, that lesbians were not welcome, in this increasingly evident men’s sexual rights movement.
At Lancaster Pride, which was advertised as a family event, evidence of this men’s sexual rights movement were seen in terms of men parading around in fetish clothing and animal masks. It was extremely disturbing to see a tent that had been set up for small children, as a “play” area, which was run by adult men wearing fetish clothing and animal masks. These children had been left there, unsupervised, by their parents, who considered it suitable. They obviously had very little knowledge about protecting their children from sexual abuse, or about grooming. Safeguarding concerns were reported to the police. I took a photograph of this highly inappropriate set-up, which you can view below.
When Trans attached themselves to the LGB organisations, it became increasingly obvious that they came with a Trojan horse, for fetishists and kinksters, who were overwhelmingly heterosexual men. This is not what LGB stood for and not what Pride represented. It was nothing to do with sexual orientations or LGB civil rights.
Over the last few years, these heterosexual men, with fetishes, have attended public Pride events, that are being promoted as family friendly, in fetish, BDSM clothing and wearing animal masks. This is not appropriate, but has been encouraged by the Trans contingent.
As well as being anti -Lesbian, these Pride events have increasingly become a show of men’s sexual rights .
Lesbian meeting places, bars and clubs have closed down or been taken over and colonised, by heterosexual autogynephiles (transvestites). Men who dress as women and who are sexually aroused by this. They too identify as “lesbians” and target real lesbians for sex. It’s a fetish. Autogynephiles were also lurking in the Trans Trojan horse.
Also hiding in the shadows of this Trojan horse, are the paedophiles, who have rebranded, calling themselves, Minor Attracted Persons (MAPs). They are already becoming accepted on social media by Twitter and I guarantee that they will be shuffling forward and they will start to assert themselves at Pride events in the UK. This is all evidence that Pride is becoming part of a men’s sexual rights movement , which is encouraged by Trans ideology and transgenderism.
Radical Lesbian Feminists in particular, wants absolutely nothing to do with this scene and what Pride has become and what it now represents. It is misogynistic and corrupting of the young and impressionable and is normalising of BDSM, kink and men’s fetishism.
Its certainly not a safe, or an appropriate environment for young people to be involved in. It is not about Lesbian, Gay or Bisexual civil rights anymore, it has been hijacked by men, straight, bi and gay and trans-formed into an expression of men’s sexual rights.
LGB Alliance UK, formed last year as a result of a LGB community in crisis, in the face of homophobic Transgenderism and Stonewall UKs inability and unwillingness to support or promote this community.
It does NOT include, or seek to include Trans or the questionable inhabitants of their Trojan horse, which has nothing to do with sexual orientation.
It is lesbian led and promises to give lesbians a prominent voice on policy making and implementation. They have been true to their word and I know lesbians that are involved in setting it up.
I have been advertising it, promoting it on social media, recruiting for it and encouraging my followers on Twitter and Facebook, to donate money, because lesbians in particular are desperate for a voice, support and a robust organisation to champion their needs.
