There's some talk about the incident at Speakers Corner at the centre of JK Rowling's accidental transphobic tweet to a 9-year-old.

Here's the timeline of the Speakers Corner assault case - a #Thread on the risks of protesting while #transgender.

From the article:

1. Maria Maclachlan was "antagonising" transgender protesters before she was "thrown to the ground and kicked" in Hyde Park.
2. The protest had been organised ahead of a meeting on changes to the Gender Recognition Act, which would allow people to use the gender they identify with on identity documents without the input of a doctor.

Much self-righteous outrage about bill C-16 and "transactivists" ruining the world today, pretending women are men and human rights are a finite resource.
It's not pie. You don't lose yours if I get some too.

It would be so refreshing to hear discussion about policy ideas that would keep everyone safe rather than lament that gender identity or expression are as equally protected as other rights - and for good reason.
Jon is now speaking. Meghan said nothing new "men are not women" and so on. Did @jonkay just say Meghan Murphy introduced him to trans-TERF issues?

If I got that wrong, please clarify Jon.

Fascinatingly would explains much.

Great win for intersex rights in Europe, two orgs are cited, ILGA Europe and OII Europe. Given TERF intersex "advocates" often claim to speak for intersex ppl and demand trans ppl and allies are silent. I wonder what they have to say about trans rights....
ILGA Europe are a multipurpose LGBTQI rights org, so understandably are pro-trans...
OII and ILGA host groups of intersex advocates from organizations all over Europe, and they've made three combined statements of what they want. The Malta statement in 2013, Riga statement in 2014, and Vienna in 2017. What do these say?

1/ Vancouver #DykeMarch website hacked (by a transwoman, apparently.) Website vancouverdykemarch.com is now offline. Problem is, when #transwomen take over women's spaces, they don't know when to stop. It was not enough to take over organizing the march. medium.com/@ms.liz.mars/c…
2/ It's not enough for trans-identified males to take over the march and kick out anyone who their spies identified as a #terf. Now they are going after those who did not do enough to forcibly remove #lesbians from #dykemarch.
3/ Next they will go after those who did not do enough to forcibly remove the ones who did not do enough to forcibly remove #lesbians from #dykemarch. Wait and watch.

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @Womans_Place_UK #Transwomen do face special challenges but they remain #bio #logical #males but it is fine for them #Gender express as ‘women’ but with the best will in the world, they remain #bio #logically #male @WomenEqualities @Commonswomequ @PennyMordaunt @MariaMillerUK @LesleySemmens
