So where are we then, what do we have to do? Sue the Sussex UCU for civil harassment and seek damages/an injunction?
Have the EHRC investigate the UCU and teach them basic academic freedom law?
Start shutting down illiberal unions?
What will it take?
Government - do something
@sussexucu (now blocked me lol)

1/ One thing that gets me about the Nolan podcast is the constant refrain that "you have to give it to them SW are effective" Yeah - effective at silencing people, using NDAs, getting people sacked, harassing actual gay charities, making the modern world hostile to lesbians.
2/ Effective at getting the law wrong. Effective at running a workshop called "the cotton ceiling" about how trans identified males can persuade lesbians into sex. Effective at being refused permission to intervene in cases (like Forstater or Bell).
3/ Effective at operating in the shadows. Effective at advocating for life changing surgeries for mainly gay GNC kids. Effective at creating a culture of double speak. At ushering in an era of wrong think. Of playing words games.

🧵1/ Gay men.
If you are teetering on the edge, you've wanted to say something, been uncomfortable with how lesbians are treated, worried about how the rainbow you helped draw in the sky is being used. This is the thread. Because you're needed now, lesbians are in trouble.
2/ Today, a deeply learn'ed, decent human lesbian professor is "being cancelled". That means people are trying to get her sacked. Her name if Professor Kathleen Stock, she a wonderful, decent, trans inclusive, normal LGBT person. But judge for yourself.

3/ You might think she's a classic British intellectual lesbian . Decent. Humane. Reasonable. Humorous. Pleasant. She's in danger. The straight people who thing they speak for Trans people are trying to get her sacked. Wonderful people like @DebbieHayton and @FionneOrlander Image

🧵1/ Seems we approach the endgame. It’s not a game for Professor Stock of course. She needs bodyguards and has to give lecture online because open criminality and abuse is now normal in a British University. She might have looked to her Union for support.
2/ As this statement demonstrates she’d be looking in vein. They’ve no interest in her health or wellbeing as an employee. No. They impliedly attack her in this statement released on the day transexual people speak out in her support.
3/ Professor Stock seems to be saying she’s had enough. That’s probably the intention. Just another lesbian harassed and defamed and campaigned against because when women’s rights fall, lesbians are the first casualty. Campaigns against women are always homophobic for this reason

🧵1/ I take no pleasure in saying this but I’m afraid what we’re seeing tonight is a sheer joy in being abusive to a mother and the concept of motherhood tonight.

Rainbow thuggery is about interceding between kids and parents a la the cultural revolution.
2/ Remember this comes after a few days pressure on the Basic Biology Denial movement with them losing ground in Sussex and more generally.

I suspect this is intended to whip up the troops somewhat and I fear it is now part of a business model that these pile ons are started.
3/ To say the quote tweets and comments are utterly revolting would be an understatement of the first order.

Jones and Sakar who have inspired this and chosen not to condemn tweets about suicide and such like are culpable here.

🧵1/ So, the men who dispute they have a mum and dad and enterally argue biology such as created them are now attacking us gay men.

No human entered this world but through a woman's legs.

The acolytes of unreason, who hate women today attack gay men.
2/ The context is this. Biology denial woke bro pronoun in bio/blue hair people are attacking decent lesbians like Professor in Stock in the UK.

Biology denial people are angry that gay men are supporting her. Angry that we, gay men, support a lesbian.
3/ Allow me to assist you in this way. When you attack gay men this is what you attack.
(1) They grew up in a world where they were "misgendereded" every day at school by bullies
(2) Their father and their brother beat them and that was ok
(3) They could be socially humiliated

🧵1/ Social media today lays bare the anatomy of a botched cancellation. The target was Professor Stock, respected academic, LGB Alliance trustee, author of the excellent book "Material Girls". The impotent would-be assassin, a University colleague, Francesco Ventrella.
2/ He's a beard and pronouns sort of chap with the mandatory ludicrous claim to compassion and now obligatory rainbow-borg claim to "queer" in some capacity and a far more dubious claim to some sort of "feminism". This morning it seems the green eyed monster arrived.
3/ Francesco here this morning posted a three tweet thread explicitly NOT calling for Professor Stock's sacking in the same way the Kray twins aren't explicitly saying they will burn your shop down when they say "Nice business you got here, shame if anything were to happen to it"
