'An Oxfam staff training document says “privileged white women” are supporting the root causes of sexual violence by wanting "bad men" imprisoned'.
'However, the charity was warned on Wednesday night that the document, compiled by its LGBT network and seen by The Telegraph, could breach equality laws as it suggests reporting rape is "contemptible".
So Oxfam responds to men in its charity raping vulnerable women by blaming women reporting rape and other women setting boundaries and saying this unacceptable.
It shows the influence of queer theory - Foucault's maxim that the problem of rape was the reporting and punishment of it, not the act - remember Foucault argued that power was in language. uncommongroundmedia.com/the-trojan-uni…
'Summarising the book’s central premise, the Oxfam document says white feminists need to ask themselves whether they are causing harm when they fight sexual violence'
The message that reporting rape is contemptable 'White Feminism' is taught in the 'Learning About Trans Rights and Inclusion' course which was drawn up in 2020, whilst Oxfam was still reeling from sexual exploitation scandals in Haiti and Chad.
The training manual discouraging the reporting of rape, sexual harassment, and sexual violence by men against women was 'written after the charity’s LGBT+ network wrote to the leadership team demanding that they publicly support trans people'.
The letter asserted that “To argue that trans-inclusivity would undermine the vital work we do for women and girls is not only transphobic, but also perpetuates the white saviour complex that assumes that we know best for the people we work with."
From 7 April 2021, an example of what Oxfam calls 'contemptable white feminism' in the name of trans rights is reporting and opposing this: bbc.co.uk/news/health-56…
This suggests that Phipps believes that young, poor, female students should suck cock to fund their studies... why campaign for grants or reducing fees eh? Image
One has to presume, based on the book, articles and the Oxfam document that Phipps & Oxfam find the reporting of this 'contemptable' and 'white tears'? thetimes.co.uk/article/5c1701…
