The Day After Trans Pride Brighton

I’ve been downing Tramadol this morning after Trans Pride Brighton as if they were fucking Smarties due to the physical agony attending events such as Trans Pride Brighton & Pride in London has on disabled me, however the physical agony I now feel due to my exertions yesterday in attending TPB was worth it not only when it comes to the reward in being able to do my bit to champion the trans cause & to shout loudly & proudly trans is beautiful, but because this was the best TPB for me on a personal level specifically due to two fellow trans women I met

I want to give a special mention to both Patricia & Dee who I met at Trans Pride Brighton as they were both were really sweet by simply being welcoming of me, with being autistic & physically disabled I’ve often found it hard to socially connect with people at events such as TPB & often found people who I thought would be friendly towards me not actually being very welcoming of me at all, so yeah it meant a lot there were people at TPB wanting to know me & who I also discovered really value the stuff I write. Patricia is the chief organiser of the trans group I’ve more often than not marched with in the Pride London parade, though we’ve only recently become far more friendly to one another & I’ve discovered that despite various political differences Patricia is one of the sweetest trans women I’ve ever met, I also discovered that despite our political differences Patricia has been moved to tears by some of the articles I’ve written of late. Dee I met for the first time at TPB 2019, I actually thought she was going to ask for my autograph as she really did come over as something of a mega fan of my whole ‘don’t give a fuck’ style of writing, she was definitely expressing a great deal of praise about me as a writer to her friends, I’m seriously blown the fuck away because usually I’m met with quite a bit of indifference about the stuff I write even from those who claim they ‘care’ about me.

As lovely as it might have been for Trans Pride Brighton to facilitate my ego being massaged & thus helping to make this the best TPB on a personal level, of far more importance is that organisers are saying overall this is the best TPB there’s been so far, there definitely appeared to be more people participating in the TPB parade along the Brighton seafront & there definitely were more attendees both trans & cis at the park event & the park was chock full stalls more then there’s previously been giving out info on all kinds of trans related stuff.

Well I’m pleased to report this year’s Trans Pride Brighton there was no attempt by terfy transphobic bigoted motherfuckers to spoil the event with some disruptive stunt to push their odious agenda of transphobic hate, though the bigoted motherfuckers have been getting their panties in a bind online about Green Party MP & former party leader Caroline Lucas having attended TPB. Caroline Lucas was indeed in attendance at this year’s TPB & it’s not the first she’s attended because as being the local MP she also steadfastly supports greater equality & social-justice for trans people & reiterated this in the awesome speech she gave when addressing those of us who were about to participate in the TPB parade along Brighton’s promenade, I’d expect nothing from Caroline because I’ve long known she’s fucking awesome!

Maybe it’s time terfy transphobic bigoted motherfuckers twigged they’re very much on the wrong side of history as they’ve lost their culture war against the trans community which was always was fucking asinine in the first place, because it’s not just Caroline Lucas or Jeremy Corbyn & MPs on the left of the political spectrum who support trans people’s wish to live free as their true selves & to do so without harassment for being their true selves. Maybe terfy transphobic bigoted motherfuckers ought to do the decent thing & fuck off & literally choked on their sour grapes, certainly time they realised their political friends aren’t to be found on the radical-left but on the far-right, as TERFs obsessive hatred of trans people & in particular of trans women has a great deal in common with the far-right & their brand of bigoted hate.

One thing which I took away from this year’s Trans Pride Brighton which gave me hope for the future was when talking to younger trans & non binary activists whilst marching in the TPB parade who like myself fear the increasing rise of the far-right & thus are very much dedicated to campaigning against the threat the far-right pose, good news to hear the future generation of trans activists are taking the threat which the far-right pose far more seriously as it’s been my experience in the recent past that those Guardian reading middle-class trans women who’ve tended to steer the direction of the trans community have been far too complacent about the threat which the far-right pose & thus have never been that willing to do anything to effectively campaign against the far-right.

The growth of Trans Pride Brighton from where it started in back in 2013 to the size it is in 2019 has been an astonishing success & I’m proud to have been part of it’s success, long may TPB grow & have increasing success in being able to raise awareness of the trans cause & to champion trans is beautiful! As long as terfy transphobic bigots have influence in the mainstream media, so long as the mainstream media continues to attack the trans community, so long as there are increasing physical assaults motivated by transphobic hate, so long as trans people aren’t receiving adequate healthcare, so long as the far-right pose a threat to there being diversity & tolerance of diversity, there will be a need for TPB.

Reflections On 2019’s Pride In London

Pride in London is the one day of the year where you get cheered on for being trans & that you get cheered on by hundreds of thousands lining the streets of the capital as you march in the Pride parade for being trans is an experience that’s exhilarating as feck, it’s the reason I’ve kept on marching year on year in the Pride in London parade since I came out as trans almost a decade ago, no matter year after year the increasing physical pain I feel from participating in the Pride in London parade. But it’s not just the personal exhilaration I feel from being cheered on as I walk through the streets of London for being trans as to why I’ll put up with the physical anguish I’m feeling right now despite having been chugging Tramadol as if they were smarties, I’m prepared to endure physical pain from marching around London on a humid Saturday afternoon to further trans visibility because it’s the least I can do when far too many trans women & trans men & gender-non-conforming people have suffered far worse for simply being visibly themselves

A reminder of the role trans people have played in the struggle for LGBTQ acceptance came at Pride in London with public address announcers on the route of the march with remembrance that this year is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots & it was trans women who were central to instigating the Stonewall Riots, a reminder that trans women were central to the most significant event which led to the LGBTQ civil rights movement as we now know it & thus we were very much involved at the very inception of LGBTQ civil rights movement, we’ve always been part of the LGBTQ community & central to pushing for greater LGBTQ acceptance no matter how much TERF & truscum bigoted fucks attempt to rewrite history. Yes unfortunately there were TERF bigots at yesterday’s Pride in London parade, a group of TERF bigots did come running past the trans group I was marching with as we waited to set off on the parade shouting some bullshit about how this wasn’t our pride but theirs, yeah well we loudly told them in no uncertain terms to FUCK OFF!

yours truly at Pride in London

At least with 2019’s Pride in London there wasn’t a repeat of what happened last year when a group of TERF bigots hijacked the start of the parade to push their hatefully odious agenda of trans exclusion, instead this Pride in London was led with a lesbian group showing solidarity with trans sisters by marching with a #LwiththeT banner, an obvious attempt of Pride in London organisers to make amends. Though it was good move to have a lesbian group lead the Pride in London parade as misconceptions need be dispelled & the truth needs to be illustrated that the vast majority of cis lesbians do in fact support their trans sisters, an illustration that with the LGBTQ community there’s more which unites us then divides us, personally I would have still preferred if an out & out trans group had led the parade as a means to make a amends for last year as well as acknowledgement of the contribution trans people have made to the LGBTQ community with this being the year which marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots etc.

I’m not sure as to exact reason why Mermaids a trans charity which helps trans youth weren’t at the front of this year’s Pride in London parade because it would have been fitting as it would have shown solidarity from Pride in London against the continuous attacks in the Tory press against Mermaids for daring to actually help & support trans kids, however Mermaids did have a presence further back in the parade & did make an impression with their presence.

I’m glad Mermaids were in attendance at this year’s Pride in London just as I’m glad of all the trans presence there was at this year’s Pride in London, trans visibility is so vital to the trans community gaining greater social-justice & didn’t hurt that TransPals whom I was marching with had a fuck off gigantic Trans Pride flag hehehe.

I actually want to close this article by giving special thanks to Patricia Curtis of TransPals as she far too much grief & not enough thanks for the work as a trans activist she does.

Here’s Hoping To See Trans People Come Out En Masse For Pride In London

I’ll most definitely be waving my Trans Pride flag tomorrow whilst marching in the annual Pride in London parade & I hope I’m one of many visible trans people who’ll be participating in London’s annual Pride parade or amongst the crowds lining the streets cheering the parade on because trans visibility at LGBT Pride events is so vital to the trans cause.

The Stonewall Riots were the most significant event which led to the proliferation of Pride parades celebrating LGBTQ diversity in just about every major westernised city around the globe as part of the modern-day civil rights movement which all trans people living in the western world have benefited from. This of course marks the 50th anniversary since the Stonewall Riots & no matter what transphobic arseholes within the LGBTQ community resentful of trans inclusion might say or what transphobic enemies from outside the LGBTQ community might say in an attempt to either malign or blatantly erase trans involvement in the Stonewall Riots, the fact remains trans women were instrumental in the instigation of the Stonewall Riots, the likes of trans legend Jayne County along with notable trans women such as Marsha P Johnson were very much in the amidst of it all. Trans people have always been part of the LGBTQ civil rights movement from it’s very inception & as far as I’m concerned we should remain very much part of the LGBTQ movement, you don’t have to tell me there is hostility towards trans people coming from within the LGBTQ community, what with the whole #DropTheT bullshit campaign on social-media & that the majority of the most rabid transphobic bigots are lesbians (TERFs), I know from my experience of having sat on the national executive of LGBT Labour that trans concerns are more often than not overlooked by the rest of the LGBTQ community, but the answer isn’t to say fuck it & run away, to do so would achieve nothing as the trans community is simply not strong enough to stand alone, plus I along many trans women are very much very much LGBTQ as any other ‘bonafide’ member of the LGBTQ community as we are lesbians as well as trans women.

Considering the hostility there’s been from some individuals within the LGBTQ community towards trans people, considering a group of bigoted TERFs disrupted last year’s Pride in London parade to push their odious agenda of transphobic hate & the rumour there were Pride in London organisers complicit in helping TERFs disrupt last year’s Pride parade in the capital, I know there might be a substantial number of trans people who’ll be thinking of boycotting this year’s Pride in London, but I’d strongly urge them not to do so as that is exactly what transphobes want. I personally think it’s utter bollocks there were Pride in London organisers complicit in helping TERFs disrupt last year’s event, as a bunch of TERF bigots preaching hate is antithetical to the image peace & love & pride in LGBTQ diversity which Pride in London would want to convey. I actually strongly suspect the rumour about there were Pride in London organisers complicit in helping TERFs disrupt last year’s Pride event was in fact started by transphobes in an attempt to dissuade trans people to come to this year’s Pride event in London or any future Pride event in London, yeah well one should never give into bullies, trans people wouldn’t have accomplished as much as we have since the Stonewall riots in ’69 if we had kotowed to homophobic/transphobic motherfucking bullies & we won’t secure greater justice for ourselves unless we don’t stand steadfast & resolute in being out, loud & proud not only in being trans but in being LGBTQ

There’s more which unites lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender & genderqueer people then divides us, yes I’ve detailed some of the hostility towards trans people which I’ve witnessed from within the LGBTQ community, but let’s be honest this is coming in the main from a minute bigoted minority within a minority & the problem with rabid transphobes within the LGBTQ community is the same problem with all extremists of any stripe which they’ll shout the loudest thus get heard & go to the nth degree to make their point thus get publicity etc, the truth however is that 95% of the LGBTQ community are in fact onside when it comes to supporting trans people & very much of the mentality there’s more which unites us then divides us.

Despite the increase in people coming out as trans & this has obviously helped the growth of the trans community, we are still not a community which is strong enough to stand on its own in campaigning for better civil rights, equality & justice, we still need to align ourselves with the rest of the LGBTQ community, so if trans people aren’t visible at Pride events nor generally visible within LGBTQ community then its far harder to keep people within the LGBTQ community onside in supporting trans equality or combatting what hostility towards trans people there might happen to be. Of course trans women such as India Willoughby being uber conservative truscum fuckwits will always go out of their way to say they’re not part of the LGBTQ community & will frequently be publicly hostile towards the LGBTQ, encouraging hostility & division with the rest of the LGBTQ community really isn’t the way to go when campaigning for greater justice for trans people & greater respect for gender diversity, it’s in fact really fucking unhelpful as encouraging hostility & division with the rest of the LGBTQ community will just be returned in kind & that is certainly not what trans people need! Trans people have always been involved with the LGBTQ civil rights movement from it’s inception, the LGBTQ community are the most natural allies of the trans community & we need all the allies we can get right now, so fuck off India Willoughby & all other truscum bigots just fuck right off!

Fuck off truscum bigots, fuck of TERF bigots, I hope to see trans people & genderqueer people turn out en masse tomorrow at Pride in London showing we won’t be maligned or ignored, I hope to see trans people & genderqueer people turn out en masse tomorrow because being visible & being seen to be visible is one of the greatest strengths in furthering the trans cause.

Claire Fox Brexit Party MEP & TERF/Transphobe

Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party cult are in talks to join the far-right grouping within the European Parliament & I’m wondering how Claire Fox might be feeling about this news being as she’s somewhat of the self-appointed voice of the working-class leftwing in favour of Brexit who’s now been elected a Brexit Party MEP for the North West of England. It’s not only that I’ve been wondering how it is Claire Fox a supposed militant lefty can sit in the same room as bunch of racist gammon, but how she’s supposedly a ‘radical feminist’ & yet will be sitting as a Brexit Party MEP alongside Ann Widdecombe a woman who could best be described as a Dickensian morselising hag. How can a supposed ‘radical feminist’ even be a member of the same party as a 70 year old virgin Dickensian morselising hag who’s vehemently antiabortion & anti LGBTQ, who’s a Conservative-Christian nut who wants to use the Hand Maid’s Tale as an instruction manual, how does Claire Fox square that circle, oh I forgot her obsession with getting Brexit has morphed her like many people who’ve obsessed about Brexit way too much into some kind of Gollum type creature & she’s prepared to get into bed with any repugnant far-right asshole if it means she thinks she’s a better chance of getting her Brexit precious Brexit!

Claire Fox MEP

Claire Fox has sold her soul to the devil & is in utter denial of having done so, she’s got into bed with the most odious & repugnant of gammon racists who have only been made to look sane by the even more reprehensible gammon racist/misogynistic clown car antics of Farage’s former party UKIP & Claire can not bring herself to admit it. Couple of weeks ago Claire was interviewed by Novara Media’s Michael Walker & Aaron Bastani, throughout the interview which lasted the best part of an hour & half, she kept reiterating she wasn’t a racist, she wasn’t a racist, she wasn’t a racist, yet when shown a video clip of Nigel Farage on Fox News being blatantly Islamophobic she denied what he was saying was racist & then proceeded to make excuses for him saying what he did, to which my response was to think Claire had become so fixated on getting Brexit she was prepared to lie to herself about the company she’s been keeping in wanting to get her Brexit precious Brexit.

I wonder if Claire Fox knows that she’s the Brexit Party’s token lefty radical, a defensive shield for Farage to use to counter any allegations that his Brexit Party cult is racist in a similar way as to when Farage was leader of UKIP & up popped Winston McKenzie when there were accusations racism being levelled at the party, ironically Winston left UKIP citing racial discrimination being rife in the party, however I’ve been told by another former UKIP member that he might’ve been made to feel unwelcome as he was taking too much of the media limelight away from Nigel Farage as my source also found out when they were receiving more media attention then Farage, yeah Claire you better watch out considering all media attention you’ve been getting lately Nige might start making you feel uncomfortable within his Brexit Party cult he’s a megalomaniacal egotist who hates having to share the limelight particularly with a lefty feminist.

Nothing wrong with being a leftwing Brexiters, one of the biggest supporters of me as a writer is a Lexiter & many of leftwing arguments for Brexit hold some water, even if I think nothing short of a Brexit which entails staying within the Customs Union (the European Free trade zone) will do as anything such as a No-Deal-Brexit would economically destroy this country & thus cause mass job losses & increase poverty something I’d rather avoid thank you. The thing is with Claire Fox is I wonder if she’s okay with sitting on the same parliamentary benches alongside gammon racists not just because she is so obsessed with getting Brexit but because she’s history of being a TERF.

I hate the term Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist (TERF) because nether is transphobia particularly feminist nor is bigotry particularly radical, but anyways well known bigoted TERFs such as Posie Parker & Cathy Newman have gladly ignored the overt misogyny of the far-right to collaborate with them to hate on trans women, yeah some rabid transphobes are prepared to get into bed with just about anybody who hates us trans woman just as much as they do. Claire Fox does have a history I’m reliably informed by trans activists wiser to her past activities then me & it follows she might still be very much a TERF bigot as some of those who will defend her on social media have the hashtag #DropTheT in their twitter profile yeah because there just isn’t enough bigotry towards the LGBTQ community from outside the LGBTQ community we have to have peeps attempting to stir up bigotry within the LGBTQ community as well. I don’t know for certain if Claire still holds to any TERF(ish) opinions she might have expressed in the past but its not a stretch that if you can hate trans women for being women you could easily hate non-whites for being non-whites, Muslims for being well Muslims, a TERF could easily be converted to being a gammon racist me thinks.

Sargon Gets Milkshaked & TERFs Care Not About His Rape Threats

If Nigel Farage gets a milkshake chucked over him during the 2019 European Elections campaign, I’m wondering if it will be considered some kind of triple crown achievement of far-right asshole candidates to have been ‘milkshaked’ following Tommy Robinson last week having had a milkshake thrown over him in Warrington & UKIP’s Carl Benjamin yesterday getting a milkshake thrown over him whilst campaigning in Totnes, this of course follows on from the weekend where Carl & odious entourage were campaigning in Plymouth & there was unsuccessful attempt to milkshake him though Carl the Kipper did get kippered when during that Plymouth outing as he was pelted with fish.

Carl The Kipper gets K kippered!

If there was anywhere in the South West of England where Carl Benjamin was finally going to get milkshaked it was going to be the Devon town of Totnes, as Totnes is a town which is renowned for having something of an hippy liberal alternative vibe about it, I think it might’ve been the town which told Costa Coffee & Starbucks to fuck off with the idea of opening branches in its town centre as they prefer to support independently artisan tea rooms & coffee shops, of course I don’t condone anybody in Totnes telling Carl Benjamin to fuck off by chucking a milkshake over hum but I perfectly understand the impulse to do so, what I will say is at least chucking milkshake over him is better than raping the podgy bastard.

Sargon AKA Carl Benjamin just after he got milkshaked

As well as having a milkshake chucked over him, the wheels on his campaign bus were slashed, I can understand the anger of antifascist activists but I don’t condone such action as far-right fuckwits will just reply in kind or worse, but talking of campaign vans, I reckon Carl either has a deep-seated fear or has a very dark sexual fantasy that a bunch of radical feminists are going to bungle him into the back of some van & roger him to death with a 13” dildo in revenge for the rape threats he’s made against Jess Philips & all the other misogynistic shite he’s said about women , though I doubt any feminist would go anywhere near Carl without wearing a hazmat suit, well if its less fear & more sexual kink for Carl to be rogered by a bunch of feminists wearing big fuck off dildos then maybe this is something he needs to discuss with his wife, yeah believe it or not somebody as odious & immature as Carl actually has a wife & kid & every time the revenue for his hatemongering is threatened he always loudly bemoans that this will undermine is ability to support his wife & kids, hey Carl if you’re so damn concerned about supporting your wife & kid then go get a steady 9-to-5 day job & stop trying to make your living from threatening female politicians with rape!

TERFs is an acronym for ‘trans exclusionary radical feminist’ though they’ve feminist only in name, the truth is they’re just the worse of the worse transphobic bigots, anyways last week some TERF scumbag on Twitter was pestering Lily Madigan who’s a trans Labour activist for supposedly making comments belittling the threat of rape towards cis women, my response to this was if TERFs are so concerned about the threat of rape towards cis women then why aren’t TERFs speaking out against Carl Benjamin because they seemed awfully quiet about Benjamin & his threats of rape towards female politicians, I mean TERFs are always propagating their concerned with the safety of women & its people like Carl Benjamin who are a direct threat to the safety of women, just about every right minded feminist & radical feminist I know has been attempting to publicly lambast Benjamin & raise awareness about how odious his opinions are towards women, the reason TERFs haven’t been as loud as about the shit Benjamin spews about women being a threat to the safety of cis women as they are about existence of trans women being a threat to the safety of cis women is they don’t give a shit about the safety of cis women, TERFs just want to persecute trans women for being trans women, oh & being as Carl Benjamin is just much a transphobic bigot as he’s a misogynistic & racist bigot TERFs will probably give him a free pass for the misogyny & racism so long as he keeps up the hate on trans women.
