One major media outlet has the courage to tackle the issue of males who ‘identify as women’ being allowed to go to female prison.  This of course is complete horseshite and a clear and present danger to the female prison population.  Imagine being locked up with a rapist and not being able to do a damn thing about it because of his protected gender-identity rights.  This is an absolute travesty of justice and a huge fuck-you to the female population of Canada.  The legislation – Canadian bill C-16 that is responsible for  this horror-clownshow needs to be repealed.

Barbara Kay writing in the National Post outlines the problems:

“Since June 2017, Canada’s Human Rights Act has prohibited discrimination against gender identity and gender expression. Correctional Service Canada’s policy had been to approve transfer to a women’s prison of a male inmate identifying as a woman only after bottom surgery. Shortly after Bill C-16 was passed, a simple affirmation of identity as a woman — no surgery, no hormones, just a pronoun change — became sufficient to request, and usually get, a transfer.

Gender identity has become a sacrosanct principle in Canada, with trans inclusivity privileged over sex-based security claims. Transwomen with a history of violent crime are not disqualified for transfer, even though we have no evidence that an individual’s psychopathology disappears with a change of gender identity. A serial pedophile; a serial sex offender; a contract killer; a child killer; a murderer: All have been approved for Canadian women’s prisons or halfway houses.”

  Anyone with more than two neurons to rub together can see the idiocy of prioritizing male gender feelings over the physical safety of women.

“Brad Hunter, a reporter with the Toronto Sun, has written up several of these cases. Steven “Sam” Mehlenbacher, for example, was convicted 16 times for bank robbery. Having escaped from more than one halfway house, Mehlenbacher was classified as a dangerous offender by the Toronto Police. After declaring a new gender identity, Mehlenbacher was moved to the Edmonton Institution for Women, and from there to Kitchener’s Grand Valley Institute in May 2019. Mehlenbacher was charged with sexual assault in March 2020.

The government’s rationale for its policy is that transwomen in men’s prisons are at increased risk for harm. At a 2019 Senate committee hearing on human rights related to imprisonment, Dr. Aaron Devor, Inaugural Chair in Transgender Studies at the University of Victoria, adduced statistics attesting to trans inmates’ high rates of “sexual victimization” (which may include anything from body-shaming insults to sexual assault). He spoke passionately of the need to accommodate transwomen in the prison system on the ground of their right to safety.

But Gearóid Ó Loingsigh, an international expert/consultant on prisons, questions the trend to trans exceptionalism in prison reforms. He argues there are many groups at elevated risk for harm in prison populations: gays, certain ethnic groups and (especially) those with mental or physical disabilities, none of whom may request transfer to women’s prisons. Loingsigh writes: “The trans are not the most vulnerable collective, not by a long shot, and … some predators self-identify as women with the aim of being transferred to women’s wings.

  Completely shocked that predatory males would ‘self-id’ as female to be place in the female prison system.  Your prey is locked up with you, with no escape and no recourse…

“Indeed, the U.K. Ministry of Justice has acknowledged that since 2010, seven out of the 124 sexual assaults against females in custody — or 5.6 per cent — have been perpetrated by transwomen, who account for about one per cent of the prison population.

Requests for transfers to women prisons are escalating in the U.K. and the U.S. The L.A. Times reported last week that the California prison system has received 261 applications for transfer since Jan. 1 from transgender and non-binary inmates. Inmates at Central California Women’s Facility told the Times that staff had warned them of potential sexual violence from trans imposters.

Clearly a certain percentage of transfers are gaming the system. Even trans advocate Aaron Devor admitted in his senate testimony, “(T)here are people who will take advantage of the system and show up and say … I’ll just claim I’m a woman.’” Consequently, we now have an unfair prison situation in which both transmen and transwomen are housed with women for protection from violent men, their right to security trumping the right to security of the women for whom these prisons exist.”

We have an election coming up soon.  When the Pols come begging for your vote see what there point of view is about putting males in the female prison system.  See if they will support the idea that female safety is more important than male gender feelings.  If the answer is in the negative, tell them you are not voting for them until they can stand up and protect half of the members of Canadian society.

When examining the claims of transgender ideology what is often found are fundamentally paradoxical claims about what the stated goals of the movement are and how they are to be achieved.


The transgender rights movement relies on opacity and vagueness to put forward it’s claims.  They claim to be the ‘most oppressed’ minority, while in reality they are not.  Ask them which rights specifically they do not have, they almost never answer because their goal is not about fighting for their rights, it is about ensuing you comply with what they say.  Which, of course, isn’t a position but rather an imposition of set of ideas and thus not really an argument per se.


In this selection Ms.Jackson examines some of the common claims transgender activists make and evaluates them against what is actually happening and the record of other rights movements.  No other rights movement has actively campaigned for the removal of other marginalized groups rights.  Specifically female rights with regards to their boundaries, spaces, services, and sports.  Women who, rightly, oppose this male colonization of female space are threatened, attacked, and face public censure for standing up and defending their boundaries.

For instance, Margaret Atwood retweeted an article that mildly criticized the more radically misogynistic behaviour of transrights activists.  This is the a small sample of the reactions she received:

Yes, I for one, can definitely see how progressive this transrights movement is.  It is, in fact, misogyny and male rights activism as soon as you scratch the surface.  And of course, what looks and quacks like anti-female activism is indeed anti-female activism as Ms. Jackson correctly identifies.

Brave women are speaking out against the quasi-totalitarian organizations that seek to sanction female speech in the name of the now perverted notions of ‘tolerance’ and ‘diversity’.  The police where called on Ms.Black for ‘offensively criminal’ content on her twitter account.  It isn’t hard to guess that she expresses opinions that are pro-female boundaries and rights in society?   Yep, women defining their experiences and themselves can get you called to the police station in Ireland.

Ms.Black isn’t having any of it, and here are her words ringing with indignation and a certain Martin Luther vibe that should rightly give transactivists pause.  Women have had quite enough of your regressive gender-bollocks.  The push-back has begun.


The following is Ceri Black’s speech delivered at the ‘Come out Of Stonewall’ protest in Belfast today.

“I’m here to stand against the protection racket that is the diversity champion’s scheme, and to call for employers to join the flood of others who have left it.

But I hope you don’t mind if I take this opportunity to speak about what’s been happening to me over the last 48 hours instead of the speech I originally prepared.

You may know this already, but a man has managed to persuade the police to invite me to an interview, under caution, regarding my Twitter account, @femmeloves.

So what kind of offensive, criminal content can you expect to see on my account?

I speak from my heart about love and boundaries. I talk about recovering from childhood sexual abuse. I speak about child protection, and how to safeguard children from the kind of monsters who put their hands on me when I was still a little girl, when I was vulnerable and lost and frightened and alone.

Before I found my voice, and the courage to raise it. Before I lifted up my bowed head, looked straight in the face of what happened to me, and healed my broken heart.

Before my wife put her strong arms around me, and kissed me, and in the perfect, secret circle of her arms, a sacred circle that no shame can enter, I found myself safe in the only home I have ever known. I talk about that too, about the love between women. I say that men should leave lesbians alone.

I talk about the erosion of boundaries which is inherent in the form of queer theory. I say that women deserve our own sports. I argue that vulnerable women, in shelters and prisons, should not be housed with males. I say with passion that dysphoric people like my beautiful wife should not be rushed down the affirmation route, and that wrong sex hormones and cosmetic surgeries should be an absolute last resort for the treatment of what is, at its root, a mental health condition. I argue that if you are swinging your penis about in the women’s changing room, you are not a dysphoric trans person. You are a predator.

If it were not prohibited by the Twitter terms of service, I would tweet out the plain fact that men cannot be women.

Perhaps naively, when I first joined this fight, I thought that the police would protect everyday working families like mine, talking on topics like these. So when I faced a wall of death threats, rape threats, threats of sectarian violence, violent pornographic photographs and videos, homophobic abuse, and calls to “go back where you came from,” on my Twitter account, I reported them to the Police Service of Northern Ireland.

They took no action.

But one phone call from a man who has a history of using the police service as his own personal enforcement arm against women he disagrees with, and the PSNI have threatened me with arrest if I don’t attend voluntarily to be interviewed under caution.

I have excellent legal representation. My solicitor is confident that there is no case to answer. That I won’t ever go near a courtroom, although he does think I will have to be interviewed one way or the other.

Don’t worry about me. This isn’t about me.

This is about the dirty tactics of a movement which delights in intimidating and bullying their opponents into silence, using fair means or foul.


This has gone far enough now.

The complainant cannot be allowed to continue to weaponize police forces across the country, to silence voices he disagrees with, whilst he capers and gloats and feigns terror because he’s triggered by tweets.

He is a bully. I do not pander to bullies. I do not cower before bullies. I put them on notice, and I employ all legal means to have them stopped.

My solicitor informs me that there are various channels open to me, so the complainant can expect to hear from me in due course.

But it isn’t just the complainant I’m putting on notice. It is the police service of Northern Ireland, it’s Stonewall, and it’s the massive fraud they call the Diversity Champions Scheme.

The police have questions for me? Good. I have questions for them.

Questions like, “What influence does being a member of the Stonewall diversity champions scheme have on the way you police this issue?”

Questions like, “When I reported death and rape threats to you, you told me to withdraw from the debate and stop tweeting, so did you offer the same advice to the man who complained against me?”

Questions like “what underpinned your decision to interview me under caution for tweets about child protection, whilst you completely ignored direct threats on my life.”

I have a long list of other questions for the PSNI, and they can expect to hear them from me in the form of Freedom of information requests in the coming days.

My solicitor is helping me explore other possible actions, including a complaint to the ombudsman.

In the meantime, I have a message for the PSNI.

I’m politely declining your invitation to be interviewed voluntarily under caution at the station.

Come and arrest me if you want to ask me your questions. Here I am.

Come and arrest a lesbian woman, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, a campaigner for women and children, for the crime of tweeting about how to protect children from grooming and sexual predation. Put this survivor in handcuffs and put me in a room. Go ahead. Ask your questions. Make yourselves the tools of a man who, with his army of vindictive and spiteful followers, has terrorised women across the nation, all the while making claims about his own victimhood.

But before you come to arrest me for offences under the malicious communications act, for homophobic and transphobic hate crime, I ask you to read my tweets. Read the thread that has caused such offence to that man, not a single word of which has violated the Twitter terms of service, or mentioned him by name. Go ahead and read my pinned tweet as well. Scroll through all my tweets. They are all there for you to see. See if you can find a single word of hatred that I have written. You will not.

In the meantime, I’m going to save you a job.

I’m going to plead guilty ahead of time.

If it’s bigoted to say that there is a sacred duty on adults to safeguard children from paedophiles, predators and perverts, then I’m guilty.

If it’s transphobic to call people out for saying “it’s a women’s penis” to excuse a male predator exposing his genitals to children in the women’s changing room room at a spa, then I’m guilty.

If it’s malicious communications to raise my voice and stand, fierce and unafraid, in defence of women and girls, then I’m guilty.

If it is a crime to write from my heart about love and boundaries, in Northern Ireland, in 2021, then it is a crime I’m very proud to be guilty of.

If those are imprisonable offences, then off to prison I will go.

But this isn’t about sending me to prison. It won’t get that far. This is an attempt to intimidate me, to bully me into silence, to shut me up. I’m here to tell you now, if you haven’t worked it out already, it isn’t going to work. I’m not going to be cowed. I’m not going to be trodden down. I’m not going to be beaten. I’m not going to appease bullies, cowards and misogynists, and I’m definitely not going to shut up.

And I’ll finish with this. A message from me to the complainant, to the PSNI and to Stonewall.

You have picked a fight with the wrong woman.


Police Service of Northern Ireland, you may have questions for me, but I have questions for you too.

1. What actions did you take when I reported receiving death threats on Twitter?

2. What actions did you take when I reported receiving rape threats on Twitter?

3. What actions did you take when I reported xenophobic taunts to “go back where you came from” and worse on Twitter?

4. What actions did you take when I reported homophobic abuse against my wife and I on Twitter, including people telling her to just transition already, and calling me homophobic slurs?

Those are rhetorical questions; I already know the answer to them. You told me to stop tweeting and get off social media. You blamed the victim. You told me that unless somebody said “here is your address and I’m coming to your house right now to do you harm” they could do nothing. You told me on the phone they were recording a “hate incident” and took no further action.

5. Are you aware that none of my tweets has ever violated the Twitter terms of service and I have never had a complaint upheld against me by Twitter?

6. Are you aware that the complainant in this case has made spurious complaints to other forces about other women and that this is part of a pattern of harassment on his part?

7. Are you aware that the complainant has been engaging in behaviours online towards me and other women which often cross the line to harassment? For example, stalking the tweets of people who have him blocked and making vexatious police complaints?

8. Are you aware that I have never engaged in behaviour like this towards him, and have had him blocked for months?

9. Have you advised him to maybe stop tweeting and engaging in politics if he doesn’t like being offended (incidentally the same advice you gave me when I co-founded the LGB Alliance Ireland and received a wall of online hate?)

Regarding your links to other organisations:

10. From which organisations have you received training regarding LGB issues?

11. From which organisations have you received training regarding Trans issues?

12. With which organisations do you have ties regarding LGB issues?

13. With which organisations do you have ties regarding Trans issues?

14. Do you receive any funding from any organisations on these issues?

15. Do you give any money to any organisations regarding these issues?

16. Are you a member of the Stonewall Champions scheme?

17. Have you received any advice from Stonewall about the complaint I made to you of death and rape threats, and how you dealt with it?

18. Have you received any advice from Stonewall regarding your decision to interview me under caution?

19. Were any officers with ties to Stonewall involved in either of those decisions?

Regarding best use of your resources:

20. How much does it cost the Lurgan police to arrest somebody and interview them under caution?

21. On what grounds have you decided that arresting me over tweets would be the best use of these funds?

22. On what grounds do you decide which tweets you are going to police and which you are not?

23. Regarding what percentage of the nearly 400 incidents of antisocial behaviour committed in Lurgan last month was an individual interviewed under caution?

24. Regarding what percentage of the 300+ violent and sexual offences committed in Lurgan last month was an individual interviewed under caution?

25. Regarding what percentage of the nearly 100 incidents of arson and criminal damage committed in Lurgan last month was an individual interviewed under caution?

Some of these questions can be formulated as carefully crafted FoIs, and you will be hearing from me more formally in the coming days.”
