1/ Vancouver #DykeMarch website hacked (by a transwoman, apparently.) Website 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.…
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.

7/ The reason trans-identified males don't do the work is simple. The most recent study on mental disorders in tims shows over half of them - 57% - have full-blown narcissism. Once installed in women's space, they all want to be the queen, and they fall to infighting and rivalry.
8/ We've seen this before. #Bullying and calling-out don't build community - they only work to destroy it. But these rabid #trans-identified males will keep using the the same tactics because they lack the temperament and the experience to do better.
9/ #NotAllTranswomen of course, but those who want to do better will be undermined, pushed out and shouted down by those who would be queen, even if it's just queen of the dumpster fire.
