Thread: Sometimes I get asked 'what's the worst thing extreme trans activists have done to you?' But it's impossible to answer. They have succeeded in preventing me from speaking (unpaid) to large groups of young people about how to end male violence, & the brilliance of feminism
I have had at least one grant removed at the last minute. Blanked by a couple of editors in sections of a newspaper I cut my journalistic teeth on. Pushed me almost 2 the verge of a breakdown. Prevented me from winning awards for my groundbreaking journalism that were in the bag.
Impacted on my unpaid feminist activism in countries around the world. Lost me speaking gigs and made me feel horrible and completely on edge during events that I should really enjoy. Alienated me from some young lesbians who I should have a complete affinity with. But I think
the worst thing that has ever been said about me (because it completely turned my stomach and made me realise how much they hate women) was way next LibDem councillor and now Stonewall trans-adviser Sarah Brown said this on a blog that was distributed far and wide:
"...there is no word in the English language, that I am aware of, for the smegma-like mixture of dead skin cells, gynaecological lube, stale urine (gives it its distinctive smell) and sweat that is sometimes present as a white residue on the end of a dilation stent when a .....
"post-operative trans woman withdraws the stent after dilating her neovagina.I propose rectifying this linguistic oversight. I propose naming this mixture, “bindel”.

As I say, this person is on the trans-advisory board at Stonewall and was an elected politician. Go figure.
PS I will NEVER give up or be cowed. The end.
Sorry, typos! Should say: 'was WHEN EX LibDem councillor'
