Thank you to all for your messages of support. I was disappointed that a small sub group of LJN allowed themselves to be used in this way, but the architects of the bullying were some academics from @Women_Strike who despite their name seem to be focused on servicing men and
silencing women. @Women_Strike were also previously involved in harassing a woman trade unionist on her picket line for the supposed crime of attending a meeting about women's rights. womansplaceuk.org/footage-of-pic…
@Women_Strike also platformed Ada Cable, despite knowing he called for gender critical feminists to be physically assaulted in the wake of Maria MacLachlan being assaulted by trans activists at Speaker's Corner. He spoke at their meeting on 'bread, roses and hormones for all' !
I was told by the academics from @women_strike that I had to leave the event because 'transwomen didn't feel safe' in my presence. I pointed out that I have now been assaulted and/or surrounded by trans activists on four occasions now, but despite that have not actually hit back
Nor did I have any intention of assaulting anyone, so they were not at risk from me. The kangaroo court told me that I was in breach of their 'safer spaces policy', not for events at camp, but for things previously posted on social media, ie women have rights to male free spaces
I stated that I support universal human rights, including for those who identify as trans, but it seemed they didn't, as they think women are not entitled to freedom of thought & expression, nor to the right of a fair trial, since they hadn't provided details of what I was
accused of, nor given me the opportunity to respond.The one accusation they did mention, that I organised a petition against a prominent trans activist, was false. When I said so the academic blustered "well maybe but I've read what you posted on social media", without specifics
So according to @women_strike males who say they identify as women need to be protected from women opinions on seeking to preserve our sex based rights, but women do not need to be protected from males who threaten physical violence against women for alleged 'wrongthink'
This is what happens when you centre males in your feminism. You end up replicating patriarchy by putting their priorities & perspectives at the top of your list, expecting women to keep quiet to keep them happy, excusing male violence + blaming women for male violence.
