Increasingly, Competing Identity Politics Is Making The UK An Open-Air Insane Asylum…

A campaign group has draped clothes over statues in protest over…

Oooh, wait! *fetches bag of popcorn*

the use of the word “woman”.

Hmmm….

Brighton ReSisters believe it should only be used when referring to “biological” women.

Members are so angry, they have covered statues including Queen Victoria in Victoria Gardens, Brighton, in T-shirts and banners.

They say the meaning of the word “woman” has been changed to be more inclusive of transwomen.

I’m feeling a twinge of sympathy with their cause here. That’s unusual!

“We stand with the rights of trans-identifying people but we as women are a biological group.”

Do they have a point?

The Brighton ReSisters protesters are frustrated there are no “women only” rape centres in the city.

The centres welcome transwomen – which could include men identifying as women – and the group says this invades “women only” spaces.

Well, quite! What sort of bonkers policy is that?

They took to the streets on Monday to put T-shirts with a dictionary definition of “woman” on Queen Victoria and other landmarks including the Peace statue on the seafront, a bridge over the A23 and the Clock Tower.

Ooooh, good thing you did this in Brighton, and not in Humberside! But is it really that bad?

This comes after the Cancer Research charity replaced the word women with “cervix-havers” in a smear test campaign to avoid offending transwomen.

Oh.

It was also angry that organisers of the national Woman’s March earlier this month called female politicians “menstruators” in a bid to be more inclusive to transwomen.

OK. I’m sold. It really is that bad. And now I’m (metaphorically) in bed with the feminist whackjobs! Who ever thought it would come to this?

    Sit back and watch the loonies whack one another. It is an old pastime, not really seen so publicly since you paid your penny for an afternoon’s entertainment at Bethlehem Hospital.

      And these days, social media brings it all into your home. For free!

    Just laugh they are Comediennes, and after listening to the Pope I want to know what would they call a pregnant nun?

      Apparently ‘unlucky’ but not ‘unusual’.

      But if it was good enough for Mary . . . . .

    I don’t quite know why this particular memory popped into my head. Back in the nineteen eighties I worked as a mechanic for an agricultural plant hire company. Working at the stores counter there was a young lady who was maybe about seventeen. Among the things that were sold over the counter were quick release hydraulic couplings. The couplings were referred to as being Male and female for fairly obvious reasons. These reasons were not so obvious to this young lady who innocently asked the reason why in front of a small group of men. The guys then attempted to explain without saying anything that was too explicit. We all knew the precise moment when the penny dropped because her face turned a very dark shade of crimson.

    Hydraulic couplings don’t seem to get confused about which gender they are.

    Quite right, calling female politicians “menstruators” really should have raised a red flag.

      I see what you did there… 😉

    Havers – A good old Scots dialect word which is being used quite appositely in this case.

    So, when female politicians stop menstruating, do they have to step down from politics or be de-selected?
    Should male politicians now be referred to as “sperm givers”?

    The “Cancer Research Charity” are now using the word Cervix-Havers, –what a bunch of “Cunts” and I may add fraudsters, I was given a copy of “RIFE’S WORLD OF ELECTROMEDICINE by Barry Lynes. Rife’s gift to the world smothered and almost lost is an example of the greed and twisted machinations of a certain class of Rulers. An Insane Asylum is just what they want.
