Fuck The British Pub

The other night I was vegging out surfacing the BBC iPlayer looking for something interesting to watch & I came across The Hairy Bikers’ Pubs That Built Britain which remind me that every time my girlfriend comes over to stay she’s always suggesting going down the local pub & I always firmly say no thanks & here’s why…

I know many people have this romantically idealised vision of the British pub being some country establishment having patrons who are interesting eccentric characters & sell real ale produced by microbreweries etc, when the reality of the British pub is the local Wetherspoons on a Friday night jammed pack full of rowdy drunken bigoted gammon thugs getting wasted on chemically enthused pints of wife beater lager who’ll glass you if you dare glance at them & even if you don’t accidently lock glances with some drunken gammon thug then you could still find yourself bloodied from having a beer glass lodged in the side of your head whilst having a quiet pint (this actually has happened to a couple of people I know).

If you’re a socialist trans woman you quickly discover more than any other group of people your average British pub in any leafy provincial suburbanite area of this country is no bastion of acceptance & tolerance despite how much this country loves to smugly pat itself on the back about how tolerant it now is of the LGBTQ community. Every since the public smoking ban came into enforce, trans women don’t actually have to go into a pub to be subjected to a barrage of drunken transphobic abuse, because you’ve now have gammon with their arses parked outside the pub with beer & cigarettes drunkenly subjecting you to abuse as walk by minding your own fucking business, believe me I’ve been subjected to transphobic abuse from gammon bigots in freezing December rain as I walk past the local Wetherspoons. Sure there are LGBTQ friendly pubs in cities such as London & Brighton I might frequent when out with friends wanting to frequent those pubs, but whether or not pubs are LGBTQ friendly it’s the fact they all have yucky brownish décor which is the major reason as to why I absolutely detest the archetypical British pub.

your typical pub clientele

No matter where a pub is situated in Britain I guarantee its interior will be dimly lit with an overwhelming brownish décor with possibly dark green seat cushions & carpeting, I know people will say this is because it’s how pubs have been traditionally decorated, yes & it use to be traditional to burn witches at the stake but we no longer do so & thus why can’t we see pubs with décor which is far brighter with the windows actually letting in sunlight & don’t leave the staff working there with a Vitamin D deficiency, oh I forgot the dark brown & green decors in pubs help hide the beer stains & the puke stains & the piss & blood stains.

Back in the 1990s before I came out as a trans woman, I spent a lot of time in pubs, in fact I spent way too much time in pubs sinking to the bottle as means of not having to deal with being trans & so I know all about dealing with denial. You tend to find a lot of alcoholics in pubs particularly pubs selling beer at rock bottom prices such as Wetherspoons, yeah like turds attracting flies etc. It’s not the slurred speech or stumbling over themselves when they try to walk or bursting out into song or even the aggression & violence you get with alcoholics which annoys me the most about alcoholics, it’s that they’ll go on & on & on & on & on boring the shit out of you about how they’re not an alcoholic because they know some other guy who drinks far much more hard liquor then they do or they’re not an alcoholic because they can go without a drink for more then 5 minutes, blahdy bullshit blah. I use to smoke but I didn’t endlessly go on boring every fucker about fucking smoking, I just got on with feeding my addiction by lighting up another Marlboro, if alcoholics want to drink themselves to death they can fill their boots as much as they fucking want in doing so as far as I’m concerned & alternatively if they want to seek help to stop them from boozing then that help should be readily available to help them do so, but please stop boring all & sundry shitless about alcohol this & alcohol that & that you’re not an alcoholic because…

I read that pubs were closing down at the rate one every 12 hours during the second half of 2019, sadly the rate of pub closures has slowed as compared to previous years, yeah I’m not weepy at all that pub trade has been in serious decline over the past decade, okay I feel sorry for those losing their jobs as a consequence, but bigoted gammon & other assorted alcoholic lowlife will just find another pub to park their arses & taunt any civilised intelligent person who dared to wonder into that pub for a quiet drink.

I know some people will say in response to me writing this that I’ve just had the misfortune of having frequented some pretty shitty pubs & there are decent pubs in this country. Hey if anybody wants to take me to what they claim is a decent pub which is gammon free then give me a call, but I don’t believe there is any pub in Britain free from gammon bigots spouting bigoted misogynistic or racist or homophobic bullshit, I maintain every pub in this country has a barstool bigot loudmouth who reckons its okay to give women a slap & all immigrants should fuck off back from whence they came.

I know there will be some who’ll allege the reason I hate pubs is because I’m some kind of new age vegan teetotaller, when in fact I’m a meat-eating atheist who loves scrumpy cider. I know when you criticise the local pub in the earshot of some people, it’s like say what you want about the church & the monarchy but don’t dare ever say anything bad about the traditional British pub because these people still have romantic notions about the local pub still being a cornerstone of the local community, Jesus fucking wept what reality do these kind of people live in because the reality I live in is where just about every pub is a gammon infested hellholes.

I know some people will say I don’t like Wetherspoons because Tim Martin is a Brexiter & on that one you’d be absolutely right.

Jess Phillips Might Be Pulling Out Of The Labour Leadership Election But Whatever I Owe Her An Unreserved Apology

There’s currently a great deal of speculation that Jess Phillips is about to withdraw from the 2020 Labour leadership election as word out of her campaign is she’ll be releasing a statement later on today concerning the future of her bid to be elected Labour leader after having failed to attend a leadership hustings organised by the GMB union.

It’s not exactly any great surprise if Phillips pulls out of the Labour leadership contest, the majority of political pundits thought it would be over for Jess Phillips come the second of nominations & well she’s secured no trade union or affiliate endorsements & highly unlikely to secure the requisite amount of endorsements from Constituent Labour Parties due to her continuous gobshiteness over the past few years directed at Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour leadership, oh & then was her woeful performance this past weekend at the Labour leadership election hustings in Liverpool where the response was generally yeah she’s a bit of gobshite & somewhat out of her depth.

Jess Phillips might have very well have officially withdrawn from the current Labour leadership election by the time I post this article, but I still owe her an unreserved apology not for calling her a Brummie gobshite but having accused her for being TERF. A Bonafide TERF Has Entered The Labour Leadership Election… is the most read article on this blog so far this year by some margin & it’s the article in which I accused Jess Phillips of being a TERF (hence the title) based on the knowledge I had had at that time of what Jess Phillips had previously said concerning TERFs versus trans people, however since I wrote that article Jess Phillips has gone on the record categorically stating trans women are women & she didn’t just say this in response to a question being asked by any trans activist or LGBTQ journalist but when participating in a Q&A on Mumsnet which as any trans woman will tell you is a central online nexus for TERFs to propagate transphobic hate (they even have a thread dedicated to hating yours truly). The fact Jess Phillips took on the hub for militant TERF bigots in sticking up for trans women means I got it badly wrong in accusing Jess of being TERF & owe her an unreserved apology for having done so because I’m never too big to admit publicly that I sometimes get shit wrong, I did think about pulling the article in which I accused Jess inaccurately of being a TERF bigot there is however other stuff contained in that particular article I do believe to be accurate & worthwhile, so what I will do is insert an author’s note at the top of that article directing people to this article rectifying my shameful inaccuracy because I’m not fucking Alex Jones, I’m not a purveyor of fake news!

There have been a couple of leftwing activists who’ve been somewhat cynical in expressing suspicions in response to Jess Phillips going on the record in support of trans people & accusing her of being a political weathervane, no I don’t believe Jess stuck her finger out the window to see which way the wind was blowing on the issue of trans right because right now the political winds are blowing against trans people gaining greater social-justice, she said the right thing in support of trans rights whilst knowing she was addressing the most militant of militant transphobic bigots who’d otherwise have signed up to be Labour supporters so they could have voted for her in the Labour leadership election.

There is definitely a great deal of hostility towards Jess Phillips amongst the left of the Labour Party much of which I can understand but I’ve started to ask myself if we have gotten Jess Phillips all wrong?

Greggs Vegan Sausage Rolls & Trans People & The Fascism of Knuckle-Dragging Gammon

Remember at the beginning of 2018 when bakery chain Greggs launched a vegan sausage roll which had Piers Morgan vomiting on Good Morning Britain & venting about how this was political correctness gone mad, well I’m surprised he wasn’t upchucking one of Greggs new vegan steak bakes launched last week particularly on hearing the news that a court ruled veganism to be protected ethical characteristic.

In other foodie related news, specifically news concerning bakery firms who financially support the Tories, Warburtons last week were besieged on social-media by a backlash from bigoted far-right gammon due to the bakery firm having put a halal symbol on loafs of bread which they produce equivalent to the bakery firm having put the kosher symbol on packs of bagels which they produce, fuck me the way some bigoted gammon knuckle-dragging Tommy Robinson fanboy wankers were bollocking on about Warburtons having put a halal symbol on their products you’d of thought Warburtons were supporting the imposition of Sharia Law upon us all, don’t tell me next Warburtons will be supporting Anjem Choudary to be Britain’s Supreme Ayatollah because I really see a Tory supporting bakery firm from Northern England doing that NOT!

Those bigoted far-right gammon who have been getting wound up no end about Warburtons having stuck a halal symbol of their goods are no doubt the same bigoted gammon who were getting all wound up at the beginning of last year when Greggs launched the sale of vegan sausage rolls in their stores & probably were just as displeased with Greggs launching their new vegan steak bake, yes it wasn’t just Piers Morgan ranting & raving about Greggs selling vegan sausage rolls in their stores being political correctness gone mad blahdy etc blah, I distinctly recall bovine loving gammon knuckle-draggers getting their panties in a serious bind & acting like utter fucking snowflakes about Greggs selling fucking vegan sausage rolls, spewing such nonsensical conspiratorial bullshit about how Greggs selling vegan sausage rolls was some nefarious means of turning everybody into being vegans.

I’m not a vegan, I’m very much a carnivore, I like nothing better then chumping down a tasty cheeseburger or a lovely medium rare steak & my opinion about Greggs vegan sausage rolls is they’re utter shite, but nobody is forcing me to eat a Greggs vegan sausage roll yet if you believed the shite bigoted far-right gammon knuckle-dragging Tommy Robinson fanboy wankers were spouting you’d of thought this was some massive imposition upon them which is some mega threat to their way of life. Oh please gammon just fuck off with the conspiratorial bullshit about Greggs selling vegan baked goods as a nefarious means in turning everybody into vegans because nobody is forcing you to eat vegan anything for fucks sake. Most vegans I know whether they’re vegans for health or ethical reasons or both aren’t trying to convert anybody into eating a vegan, no vegetarian nor vegan has ever harassed me nor even merely suggested I should eat a vegetarian or vegan diet, nor have I ever heard of any militant vegan ever going into a steakhouse wearing to a suicide vest demanding the entire populous cease eating meat because meat is murder, yet despite vegans on the whole being extremely peace loving people they might as well be strapping on bombs & attempting to convert everybody into not using meat related products, because gammon will continue with the conspiratorial bullshit as seem to have this innate paranoia that vegans are trying to convert the entire populous into being vegans, they actually have the same innate paranoid bullshit about all groups in society different to them including trans people.

I’m trans woman & I nor any other trans person is trying to convert anybody into being trans, you’re either born trans or your not, what I & nearly all other trans people are asking for is that we are treated with dignity & respect, but apparently this is too much to ask for with the infestation of gammon there is now throughout society hence why you have Piers Morgan not just upchucking vegan sausage rolls on ITV’s Good Morning Britain but also verbally beating up trans activists such as Munroe Bergdorf. Piers Morgan reflects the gammon infestation’s inability to accept difference & diversity, whether it’s Greggs selling vegan sausage rolls or trans people demanding to be respected on par with the rest of society. Despite the fact if we were all meant to be the fucking same we’d all have been born fucking clones of one another, but with gammon we must be like them or else, hmm I kind of think trying to impose we should all be like braindead gammon to be you know a bit fascistic!

It’s New Year 2020 & As A Physically Disabled Trans Woman I’ve Never Been So Shit Scared About My Future As I’m Now

Though I had most awesome start to this new decade as in the first minutes of the 2020s I got engaged to my girlfriend & we both now dream of having a fabulous wedding sometime in the next few years, however this is all very much dependent on whether this Tory government doesn’t murder me for the crime of being a disabled person.

Despite there being wedding bells in the air for yours truly, I’ve never been as scared for my future as I’m this New Year 2020, yes I might have survived the 2010s as a disabled person who increasingly needs government assistance to help me with the day to day tasks which able bodied people take for granted when over many other disabled people perished as a consequence of Tory austerity, but I can’t help thinking its really only a matter of time before I’m shipped off to an Atos death camp & become yet another statistic in the Tory genocide against disabled people.

The Tories continuing policy when it comes to caring for disabled people

Genocide & death camps might sound well too emotive & hyperbolic for some, but hey your likely not a severely disabled person thus have no fucking idea what so fucking ever what it’s fucking feels like to be a disabled person living under the threat which Tory government poses to us merely breathing never mind living or thriving. Let me remind you without truly having a parliamentary majority the Tories have managed kill over 100,000 disabled people over the past decade & gave a knighthood to the evil Tory cunt who was main architect of that genocidal level of death, now the Tories have a thumping parliamentary majority I dread to think what economic terrorism the Tories are now going to get away with unleashing on disabled people particularly when there are Tory backbenchers like Sally-Ann Hart Hastings & Rye who thinks disabled people are inferior human beings.

I dread to think what economic terrorism the Tories will unleash when Brexit kicks in! Oh fucking dear (& then some) if your some fuckwit gammon who’s thinking Brexit will somehow produce some kind of British renaissance & the 2020s will be the roaring 2020s, because you truly are a fucking fuckwitted fool who knows nothing about fucking economics. This country is going to be far poorer as a consequence of Brexit & shit is going to be a lot more expensive, which is going hurt most off all the most vulnerable in society such as disabled people, but hey bollocks to us disabled people so long as gammon get to wrap themselves up in Union Jacks & bash Johnny Foreigner.

There are conflicting reports as to whether former leader of the English Defence League Tommy Robinson & leader of Britain First Paul Golding have had there applications to join the Tory Party turned down, but the fact the fascist hatemongering gammon are joining the Tories in droves led by the likes of Tommy Robinson & Paul Golding & Katie Hopkins is shit fucking scary, in fact what’s more scary is that Boris Johnson nor any other senior Tory has discouraged out & out fascist thugs from joining the Tories nor condemning fascist thug like Paul Golding making threats of violence against those who legitimately oppose this Tory government.

Boris’s hardon for Brexit, Boris’s racist & Islamophobic & homophobic &  misogynistic rhetoric, Boris evidently being Britain’s pound shop version of Donald Trump, geez wonder why far-right hatemongering trolls are attracted to supporting the Tories, fuck it why not cut out the bullshit & have the Tories drop the oak tree as their party logo & replace it with the swastika because hey it’s obviously the direction the Tories are currently traveling.

I’m not just shitting myself about the Tories economic policy affecting me due to being a disabled person, I’m shitting myself about the Tories social policies affecting me as a trans woman, for whatever reason trans people are still the most persecuted section of the LGBTQ community & considering we now have hatemongering gobshites trolls like Katie Hopkins joining the Tories who is the most rabid of rabid transphobic bigots & that we know there are transphobic bigots on the Tory parliamentary benches such as David T.C Davies, yeah it doesn’t quite look as if it will be the roaring 2020s if you’re trans or non-binary. I’m not saying that lesbian & gays won’t be immune from any Tory anti-LGBTQ bullshit, but apart from the odd fringe voice spouting homophobic bigotry the vast majority of Tories now generally accept gay & lesbian equality, it’s trans & particularly non-binary people who’ll be targeted by any Tory anti-LGBTQ bullshit. Despite us seeing a lot positive progress for trans people throughout the 2010s, maybe due to first half of the decade Britain having a Tory Prime Minister for all his faults was in fact socially liberal, but those days are long gone & the transphobic backlash is well underway, it’s now a question how much that will this will influence this Tory government when it comes to policy.

Remember Donald Trump posing with the LGBTQ Pride flag at a rally during the 2016 presidential election campaign, remember Boris going out of his way to mention LGBTQ when he first entered Downing Street as Prime Minister, golly hasn’t the Trump administration been mightily progressive & enlightened in it’s policies concerning the LGBTQ community & specifically trans people err NOT! Remember it was a Tory government which brought in Section 28 which deliberately discriminated against gays & lesbians, well there are now transphobic bigots proposing a similar discriminatory policy in regards to trans people.

I might not be so hopeful the 2020s will be so roaring for me personally or friends around me, in fact I sadly think the 2020s might be the last decade I get to draw breathe due to Tory this & Tory that, but I guarantee I will continue to fight & campaign against Tory evilness the best I can & I will never ever go fucking quietly.

The Winner Of The 2019 Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year Award Is….

It’s the last day of the year & so time to reflect upon the last year, time to think who’s been the biggest dickhead when it comes to the realm of socio-political bullshit, which cunt of utter cunts has fucked me off the most.

I’m tempted to award Iain Duncan Shit with Botha’s 2019 Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year, as he’s more deserving of ‘cunt of the year’ award then the knighthood he’s receiving in the New Year Honours considering he’s the architect of the Tories ‘welfare reform’ program which has resulted in a genocidal level of disabled people being murdered. But Iain Duncan Shit misses out on being awarded Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year this year, because how much it might fucking well fuck me off that he’s able to freely walk the streets when he should be in prison for crimes against humanity, there have been other cunts who’ve fucked me off this year & there have been bigger dickheads when it comes to politics.

I’m actually awarding Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year in 2019 to two people, the first is a trans woman, but it’s not Kellie Maloney who told me I was an intolerant bigot yet she’s the one who was a member of UKIP an out & out xenophobic political party whereas I’m the one who has fought racism since I can remember from the days I campaigned against Apartheid in my native South Africa to opposing UKIP & the rise the far-right, nor am I awarding Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year in 2019 to Caroline Cossey despite her being a bigoted truscum cunt who’s a control freak bully wanting to regiment everything from my bowel movements to the words I write.

India Willoughby

The first recipient of the 2019 Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year Is …(drumroll)… India Willoughby, this is because of the truscum bigoted cunt constantly spewing transphobic bollocks in the mainstream news media mainly on Good Morning Britain where its more then obvious being a failed journalist she’s angling for a job, anytime Piers Morgan as the presenter of Good Morning Britain wants to go on some transphobic rant there’s India as a trans woman to give him some sort of shield of credence when he starts whipping up hate towards the trans community. Whilst appearing on Good Morning Britain India Willoughby has come out with such truscum/transphobic/homophobic bigoted shite as accusing the LGBTQ community acting like the KGB…..oh is this because those of proud to be LGBTQ have called you out for your bigotry towards sections of the LGBTQ community geez how dare we oppose transphobic & homophobic bigotry which helps no LGBTQ person, she repeatedly denies the identity (she’s even denied the existence) of non-binary people yet whines about being misgendered…..though being a trans woman myself I know how hurtful it is for plebs to continuously misgender you but as India denies the existence of non-binary people she hasn’t a fucking leg to stand on when it comes to whining on about how cruel & unjust it is to be misgendered if you’re a trans woman, India is constantly posing as if she’s the arbiter of what’s who is & isn’t trans & how specifically how trans women should convey themselves…err fuck off India who the fuck put you in charge & what makes you a fucking expert because though you might be trans nearly everything I’ve heard from you tells me your in fact incredibly ignorant about trans stuff & the fact you nearly always seem to side with the enemies of the trans community such as TERFs & god bothers says a great deal. The last time I saw India Willoughby appearing on Good Morning Britain she said she no longer identifies as trans, oh geez India we are so heartbroken you no longer identify as trans which is why there were trans woman dancing in the street to that news, actually I wasn’t dancing in the street because I just know as soon Piers Morgan wants to stoke up more hate towards trans people whilst presenting Good Morning Britain, there will be India Willoughby to assist him because considering her floundering journalistic career she’s probably angling for Piers Morgan to give her a leg up.

It’s probably going to bruise Willougby’s ego somewhat to find out that she’s actually the joint winner of the 2019 Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year ha fucking ha.

There is an overpopulate field of far-right scumbag cunts spouting hate & intolerance, Tommy Robinson, Katie Hopkins & Paul Joseph Watson are all apt candidates for Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year & any of whom could won this prodigious award any other year, but one far-right scumbag cunt has exceeded all other far-right scumbag cunts in their far-right scumbag cuntishness.

Carl Benjamin

The second recipient of the 2019 Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year Is …(drumroll)… Carl from Swindon, aka Carl Benjamin, aka Sargon of Wankhard, aka weird rapey tweet man, aka the man who’s clown car antics during this year’s European Election campaign not only sunk politics in this country to a new low but managed to sink UKIP as any kind of serious contender in British politics. As well as Carl proving himself by far the biggest far-right dickhead of the year, he also helped to inspire one of my favourite YouTube vids of 2019 Sargonian Rhapsody which believe me is saying something as I utterly detest the original Bohemian Rhapsody. I bet Carl after having gone out of his way to harass Labour MP Jess Philips with rapey orientated bullshit is now grinding his teeth because she’s in the running to replace Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader whereas Carl where the fuck is he with is political career, oh fucking ha fucking ha, hey maybe in 2020 Carl could join the Tories as the rest of the far-right pondlife appears to be doing, actually I’m kind of hoping he actually will join Tories as Carl is something of the grim reaper when it comes to political movements.

Yes in 2019 its been India Willougby & Carl Benjamin who have fucked me off no end, far more then Boris Johnson or Iain Duncan Smith or Donald Trump or Alex Jones, but have no doubt all those names I’ve listed are most definitely cunting cuntish cunts!

Trolls & Arseholes Rush To The Defence Of JK Rowling

Well, well, fucking well, have a guess which vilest of vile hatemongering gobshite trolls has rushed to the defence of JK Rowling coming out publicly as transphobic bigot…

I’m not at all surprised Katie Hopkins has rushed to defend JK Rowling considering the hatemongering gobshite has a long history of spewing transphobic hate which has included trolling the trans community on the Trans Day Of Remembrance, oh & what the fuck was Katie inferring by the ‘trans brigade’, what does Katie think trans people have a trans specific emergency service we can call on when one of us is in distress because how I wish there in fact was. Obviously what Katie Hopkins is inferring by ‘trans brigade’ is there’s some cabal of militant trans activists who act like some guerrilla terrorist group equivalent to the Angry Brigade or the Baader–Meinhof Group, yeah because apparently trans people daring to vocally defend ourselves against hate & bigotry is fucking terrorism isn’t it NOT! The far-right seriously do think trans people merely wanting equality & respect are part of some giant all-powerful Cultural-Marxist conspiracy to pervert western civilisation, yeah well this was parodied in the Pink News after the recent General Election with the headline Once Again Powerful Transgender Lobby Elects 0 Openly Trans Or Non-Binary MPs.

JK Rowling

Its however not just the far-right with the likes of Katie Hopkins who’ve been defending JK Rowling being a transphobic bigot, on the other end of the political spectrum the supposed ‘paper of the left’ which once employed outgoing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as columnist is also defending JK Rowling being a transphobic twat. The Morning Star the supposed ‘paper of the left’ have solidarity when it comes to championing greater social justice & equality for the homeless, poor, Muslims & the disabled, even rad-fem lesbians, but when it comes to trans people the Morning Star time again chuck us under the bus as proven by them repeatedly giving a platform to the most odiously outrageous transphobic bigots. My fucking arse are the Morning Star the ‘paper of the left’, with the transphobic bullshit they repeatedly publish they’ve more appeal to Southern Rednecks then anyone else as pointed out by my old mentor Natacha Kennedy.

We all know about the far-right when it comes to homophobic/transphobic bigotry & intolerance, but I’ve long said that the hard-left/radical-left also has an issue when it comes transphobic bigotry, the transphobic shit repeatedly published in the Morning Star, the transphobic abuse you’ll be subjected to on any Facebook group which is supposedly meant to be orientated to socialist campaigning whenever you post anything which is in defence of trans people, the lack of LGBTQ speakers at any antifascist demo held by whatever front organisation for the Socialist Worker Party, it’s all hints which add up to you concluding that those who supposedly the most ardent champions of diversity & social justice don’t give a shit that trans lives matter & trans rights are human rights. Oh sure all on the hard-left/radical-left were united in support of Jeremy Corbyn who has spent over 50 years campaigning for LGBTQ people, however many of his supporters sadly didn’t take note of his support for LGBTQ equality & I’ve repeatedly said Labour has had a bigger problem with transphobia then with antisemitism but because the mainstream news media are transphobic as fuck it’s not been as widely reported. Not everybody socialist is a transphobic fuck, journalist & activist Owen Jones has been a first-class trans ally, Owen has been more then vocal in campaigning that trans lives matter & trans rights are human rights & in doing so has often has borne the brunt of abuse for transphobic bigots, me thinks he’s a shining example which other socialist activists on the hard-left/radical-left could learn much

JK Rowling Comes Out As A Transphobic Bigot

So yesterday Harry Potter author JK Rowling finally came out publicly as a transphobic bigot in a tweet defending Maya Forstater who lost an employment tribunal which she brought against her former employers after they had sacked her for having expressed on social-media out & out transphobic opinions.

JK Rowling

Considering Maya Forstater had worked as researcher for the Centre for Global Development an International thinktank that campaigns against poverty & inequality, me thinks its more then appropriate she had her arse fired, doesn’t seem in keeping with the ethos of campaigning against inequality to be having a gobshite TERF bigot working for you.

There have supposedly been hints in stuff Rowling has said in the past that she might be something of a transphobic bigot, certainly amongst the trans community there was a strong suspicion Rowling was secretly a TERF & though no surprise to me nor any other trans person that indeed Rowling is a bigoted transphobic gobshite, I’m still angry about her transphobic protestations on Twitter, in fact I’m fucking angry as fuck with her spouting transphobic Bullshit in defence of an out & out TERF because she is world’s bestselling living author & being so she has the kind of stature in the bullshit she spouts which is just going to feed ammo to those transphobic bigots who would gladly see me as well as every other trans person wiped from existence.

As well as world’s bestselling living author, she’s supposedly meant to be somebody who’s politically left of centre or centre-left & has in the past been a major financial donor to the Labour Party, yeah well as a trans woman who’s politics are most definitely on the left of the political spectrum, I’d not say you’re any kind of political lefty or liberally minded individual when you go about defending exclusionary or discriminatory attitudes towards trans people & espousing trans people shouldn’t have equal rights on par with cis people, if Rowling had defended somebody who’d said that Black people weren’t real people or not shouldn’t have equal rights on par to White people she’d rightly be accused of being a racist well that’s essentially the equivalent here to what she’s has been defending.

I’ll admit this is not the first time I’ve been grinding my teeth in recent years when it comes to Rowling, because a while back she along with other Labour supporting wealthy celebrities such as Ross Kemp & Mick Hucknall were funding the establishment of various groups within the Labour Party with the primary objective to undermine Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, yeah that’s worked out well hasn’t it err not, geez thanks Rowling you Blairite cunt! I’m now wondering if JK will now be supporting Jess Philips bid to be elected Labour leader now Jeremy Corbyn is on his way out, of course that it is if Jess Philips isn’t just dropping hints she’ll throw her hat in the ring & actually follows through & this isn’t just her usual publicity whore antics in just spouting bullshit to get headlines, anyways the reason I thought Rowling might back Jess isn’t just that Jess is on the right of the party but she’s also transphobic as fuck having said bullshit in support of Women’s Place UK which is a vicious transphobic hate group.

The transphobic shite espoused by JK Rowling couldn’t have come at a worse time, a hard-right Tory government led by Boris Johnson has just been elected with a whopping parliamentary majority, we all know Boris’s record when it comes to bellowing homophobic rhetoric but there are other Tory MPs who’ve voiced bigoted rhetoric far worse against the LGBTQ community, no longer is it about the LGBTQ community gaining greater rights now we are going to have to defend tooth & nail the rights we have. Trans people in particular are already the most marginalised group within the LGBTQ community & will likely bear the brunt of any anti LGBTQ shitstorm fermented by the Tory fringes, but if not the Tory fringes helping to further persecute & marginalise trans people then there’s always the likes of JK Rowling doing so.

Thanks To Fascistic Trump I’m Now Immobile For Christmas

I recently received this bullshit disabilist tweet from somebody who’s quite obviously a Tory troll.

Yes of course I must be lying my fucking arse off about being disabled because I’m not dribbling whilst sat in a wheelchair 100% of the time unable to comprehend the world. I can most definitely testify from personal experience as disabled person that the disablist attitude exhibited by this Tory troll is sadly pretty prevalent amongst the general populous, people really do seem to think that unless you’re not visibly sat in a wheelchair 100% of the time then your bullshitting the world about being disabled. What’s particularly irksome isn’t just that many people can’t grasp not all disabilities are visible & that those disabilities which are invisible are often the most debilitating of disabilities, it’s the contradictory bullshit of accusing disabled people of using whatever disabilities they suffer from as an excuse in not making enough effort to do whatever but then accusing disabled people of lying about being disabled when they do make an effort to do whatever, in other words when I do make effort to get out & about to do whatever despite being disabled I’m accused of lying about being disabled yet if I didn’t make an effort to get out & about to do whatever because of being disabled I’m then accused of using my disabilities as an excuse to be lazy, seems to me cynicism has replaced compassion regards the general attitude of people in this country towards disabled people.

For the record I suffer from multiple disabilities (not all of which are visible) including physical disabilities effecting my mobility, for the record whenever I have attended any protest or parade in London I’ve more often then not been laid up unable to walk for more then day afterwards, but it’s not just the next few days I’m going to be laid up unable to walk as a consequence of having attended yesterday’s Anti-Trump demo in London but I’m going to be immobile for the entirety of Christmas due to having tripped & fallen & in process knackering my right knee as well as spraining my left ankle.

yours truly at yesterday’s Anti Trump demo prior to busting my knee

When I tripped & fell as the anti-Trump demo was setting off from Trafalgar Square to march on Buckingham Palace where Queen Lizzy was hosting a reception for Donald Trump & other NATO leaders, it wasn’t the pain from having tripped & fallen in the manner I did that had me in floods of tears, but the police & stewards who’d gathered round me to see if I was okay misgendering me as ‘he’, which was kind of frigging ironic as I was attending this Anti-Trump demo to represent trans people as Indeed I have when I’ve attended all the other Anti-Trump demos I’ve managed to attend over the past couple of years.

With yesterday’s Anti Trump demo there were activists giving speeches about all usual leftwing concerns you’d expect activists to be making speeches about at an Anti-Trump demonstration, justice for Palestinians, fuck off NATO, Trump is a racist & Islamophobe & a misogynist, all which being a redder then red socialist I of course agree with, but there wasn’t one LGBTQ activist or more specifically trans activist speaking from the platform yesterday thus no mention of Trump’s rabid transphobia despite it being more then fucking evident that from the moment he took office his administration has been waging a war against trans people. Though Paris Lees did get to speak at a previous Anti-Trump demo back in the summer of 2018 which was attended by 300,000 people (me included) usually there’s been an absence of trans or even LGBTQ speakers at the Anti-Trump demos there have been & generally when it comes to antifascist demonstrations. Don’t the Stop The War Coalition or Unite Against Fascism or the Socialist Workers Party or whichever leftwing activist group who’ve been organising Anti-Trump & antifascist demos not know Trump is being a colossal cunt towards trans people, do they not think the rise is the far-right isn’t an increasing threat to LGBTQ people & specifically trans people?

It’s because of the lack of LGBTQ representation & specifically the lack of trans representation there has been from platform at Anti-Trump & antifascist protests which is exactly the reason why I attend these kind of protests waving a Trans Pride flag like a motherfucker & why there needs to be far more trans visibility amongst the demonstrators at these sort of protests as a reminder trans people are very much threatened by the rise of the far-right in fact more so then any other section of the LGBTQ community. Some might pooh-pooh my personal efforts to increase trans visibility in the fight against fascism making bollock all difference, however to my surprise a trans friend who ‘s a working-class Tory actually applauded me for my efforts in trying to increase trans visibility when it comes to demonstrating against Trump. It’s certainly not a good thing to have busted my knee thanks to Donald Trump being a fascist fuck, but having a Tory of all people appreciate me for the effort I’ve made in trying raise trans visibility when it comes to protesting Trump well that actually means a great deal to me & goes a long way to making up for the physical agony I’m having to endure this festive season.

Thoughts On Which Party Is Possibly Best When It Comes To The Issue Of Trans Rights

This past Sunday morning I was as per usual watching the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show being the political anorak that I’m & completely out of nowhere Andrew Marr asked Labour’s Angela Rayner whether the party was planning to make it easier for those people choosing to transition gender when it comes to legally self-identifying? Err? What? Marr you transphobic plank, I can testify as a trans woman myself that you don’t choose to be trans it’s ain’t a lifestyle choice! Angela Rayner did pull Andrew Marr up for making out that being transgender was a ‘lifestyle choice’ & then proceeded to detail many of the issues trans people face & that she fully supports trans equality.

I know that members of the Labour leadership such as Angela Raynor & Dawn Butler are strong supporters of trans people & trans rights, in fact I met Dawn Butler last year when she gave a speech in support of trans people at a conference that I was attending & her speech I remember was something which triggered a tsunami of abuse on social-media directed at Dawn personally from transphobic gobshite bigots. Transphobic bigots are again unhappy with Dawn because as Labour’s shadow equalities minister she has said there should be no discrimination against trans people regards single-sex spaces, yes I know it’s a fucking outrageous idea that trans people should be able to eat at the same lunch counter as cis people, for us be able to drink from the same water fountain, trans people we should know our place at the back of the bus & we must absolutely never use the same toilets as cis people. Despite from what Dawn Butler & Angela Raynor have said in support of trans people during the election campaign, some trans people have accused Labour of dog whistle transphobia in its manifesto as it states in the manifesto that a Labour government would enforce exemptions regards single-sex spaces, in other words they’d enforce discrimination against trans people, so there does seem to be a contradiction between what the manifesto states regards equality for trans people & what Labour politicians are saying regards equality for trans people.

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson appeared directly after Angela Rayner on this past Sunday’s edition of the Andrew Marr Show & Andrew Marr asked Swinson in a similar manner about the Lib Dems support to make it easier for trans people to self-identify & not have to jump through hoops to validate our gender identity as we have to currently, the Lib Dems have certainly been banging the drum as loud as they are able to this election campaign about their support for trans equality & there is a decent chance at this election that one of their parliamentary candidates Helen Belcher being elected as Britain’s first trans MP. But how much the Lib Dems love to loudly trumpet that they’re uber champions of trans equality, they don’t think other oppressed minorities such as disabled people deserve greater social-justice & though at a national level the Lib Dems are all very pro LGBTQ that’s not necessarily the same at a local level because I do recall a local Lib Dem councillor telling round the time civil partnerships became legal for same-sex couples that she had nothing against gays & lesbians just so long as they didn’t live next door to her.

Tory slime ball & cokehead Michael was also on the Andrew Marr Show this past Sunday, but Andrew Marr didn’t ask the Tory slime-ball & cokehead where the Tories stood regards making it easier for trans people to self-identify, strange to me as he’d asked Labour’s Angela Rayner & Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson where they stand on the issue & strange because it was the Tories who first under David Cameron & then Theresa May were pushing to make it easier for trans people to self-identify. My understanding is that the Tories have dropped support for reforms to the Gender Recognition Act since Boris moved into No10 & he’s also appointed known Tory transphobes to top jobs in the cabinet such as Liz Truss who has links with a transphobic hate group. Obvious to me the Tories are moving to the hard right with Boris Johnson at the helm, which likely means if they’re re-elected on December 12th then there’s going to be a government far less supportive of trans people & far less friendly to the wider LGBTQ community.

I often get complaints from fellow trans people about not writing enough about trans issues, maybe I don’t write enough about trans issues but there are other issues which equally affect me because I’m much more then just trans. What I’m essentially saying to trans people is don’t get to wrapped up in the importance of trans rights that it blinds you to other issues at stake with this General Election which will affect you, yes most definitely trans rights are important you needn’t tell me as I’m a trans woman who in her time has been an extremely vocal trans activist, but what good are rights & equality if the environment is becoming so fucked up its become inhabitable.

What A Clusterf**k It Must Be To Be A Palestinian Who’s LGBTQ

What a clusterfuck it must be to a Palestinian who’s LGBTQ, I mean not only are you going to be victimised by the Israeli government’s apartheid regime against the Palestinian people but you’ll also going to be victimised by other Palestinians for being LGBTQ, not only do you run the risk of being shot or rocketed to death by the Israeli Defence Force for being Palestinian but you’re also at risk of being thrown off the top of a rooftop by other Palestinians for being LGBTQ.

The Palestinian Authority recently announced a ban on all LGBTQ activities in the West Bank after Al-Qaws an organisation that supports LGBTQ Palestinians were planning to hold a public pro LGBTQ event in the city of Nablus, a spokesperson for the Palestinian Authority told the told the Jerusalem Post that the decision had been made because activities of groups such as Al-Qaws are “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society”, yeah more like the Palestinian Authority are homophobic/transphobic as fuck & are being utter frigging hypocrites because whereas they’ll complain rightfully about Palestinians being persecuted for simply being Palestinians they’re prepared to persecute the LGBTQ amongst the Palestinian populous for simply being LGBTQ.

Nobody can help being Palestinian, nobody can help being LGBTQ, nobody should ever be discriminated or persecuted because of stuff they can’t help such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability or age, it kind of goes without saying that a political leftist physically disabled Jewish transsexual lesbian such as myself would espouse this. Because I’m a trans woman who is a lesbian, Zionists love to challenge me for having supported justice for the Palestinian people & critical of the Israeli government when its evident that homophobia/transphobia is rampant amongst the Palestinian populous & LGBTQ Palestinians are being persecuted by other Palestinians for being LGBTQ whereas within the state of Israel itself LGBTQ rights are progressively on par with Western Europe. Other then the recent decision by the Palestinian Authority to ban the activities of pro LGBTQ groups, I’m well aware there are no protections or rights for Palestinians who are LGBTQ in the West Bank or Gaza, yes I know in Gaza controlled by Hamas that LGBTQ people are being thrown off rooftops no doubt excuse for which is no doubt poisonous religious interpretation, yes LGBTQ rights in Israel are comparative to LGBTQ rights in Western European, but none of this excuses the racist policies of the Israeli government against the Palestinian people.

One of the oddities during the Apartheid era in my native South Africa was transsexuals had rights & legal protections which were in fact far more progressive then they were in the UK at that time, but how progressive the apartheid regime in South Africa happened to be in regards trans people this was never an excuse the savagely rabid racism of the apartheid regime in treating non Whites like shit & the same goes for Israeli government being ever so progressive when it comes to LGBTQ rights doesn’t excuse the Israeli government orchestrating an apartheid regime as it has against the Palestinian people.

No matter how rampant homophobia/transphobia might be amongst the Palestinian people this doesn’t excuse the racism of the Israeli government towards Palestinians, two wrongs don’t make a right, despite some Zionists thinking it does. I have encountered Zionists who seem to think Palestinians being homophobic/transphobic as fuck is enough of an excuse to go bomb the shit out of Palestinian communities, but that’s not actually why the Israeli Defence Force are shooting or rocketing Palestinians is it, no the IDF are firing upon Palestinians for purely being Palestinians no matter if they’re homophobic/transphobic or not.

I condemn both the Palestinian Authority & Hamas for being homophobic/transphobic & equally I condemn the Israeli government for being racist as fuck & overall I just fucking despair & most of all feel for Palestinians who are LGBTQ literally getting shot on both sides.
