    […] Let’s start with Cathy Brennan’s site Gender Identity Watch. Cathy Brennan is a radical lesbian feminist whose adamant defense of “female-only space” against transgender intrusion has made her a primary target of the anti-TERF campaign. Make no mistake: Brennan’s enemies are trying to destroy her, going so far as to petition the Southern Poverty Law Center to label her site a “hate group.” […]

    I have another radical statement to make.

    Transgender women are not women.

    Cisgender women are women.

    That’s it.
    I don’t hate you. You’re just talking nonsense, and it offends me when I realize that I’m obliged to agree with nonsense, in a way or another.

      I have a radical comment. If there is no such thing as “brain gender” there is no such thing as “brain sexuality”. There is no such thing as a lesbian. You may all stop calling yourself lesbians now and return to having sex with men. You are born biologically female and therefore you are genetically attracted to men only. The proof of this is lesbians use phallus shaped dildo’s, not vagina shaped dildos that look like female genitalia. Stop trying to convince us you are gay. It’s just in your mind.

      Until that happens we are going to have heterosexual only women’s festivals where we will create safe spaces for heterosexual women. I do not feel safe with women pretending to be lesbians in the bathroom, leering at me. Enjoy!
