Link to his twitter soliloquy

Eddie Marsan can fuck off too. In these kind of pile-ups it's striking that it's usually men and young women vs. older women. With honourable exceptions.

I do find it amusing that Owen Jones is finger pointing at the 'Transphobia' in the New Statesman ffs. He thinks he gets to pontificate the correct stance on every issue lest we be bigots. I could get it if it were the Spectator. It just confirms my recent resignation to the fact that leftwingers these day allow no resistance in the ranks, which is probably why I find myself backing away and am without a political home these days.

Like many women, the Trans issue is the line in the sand for me and I will not support a party that throws women under the bus.

These things need captioning really.

:: In a strong break from tradition, a load of blokes shout at women and young girls timidly go along with it. ::

:: Area man can no longer contain his outrage: woman just won't be told. ::

:: Area woman continues to exist unapologetically. Area man declares, "Something must be done!!". ::

Cuir, there have been quite a few men on our side this time round. Mainly they seem to be offended by the suggestion that they might be centrists wink

He's in a huff because women aren't falling for this bullying shit anymore.

Is OJ the half-wit who called lesbians transphobe bigots for not having sex with men who said they felt like women, but got very upset at the suggestion he should perform oral sex on a vulva if that woman said she felt like a man?

KatherinaMinola Sat 07-Oct-17 15:46:48

That's the one. He is an out-and-out misogynist - you just have to watch his behaviour towards women vs his behaviour towards men to see this.

It took me a while to realize though - to begin with I thought he was just annoying.

AssignedPerfectAtBirth Sat 07-Oct-17 15:48:08

Yes it is rather telling that 'Centrist' and 'transphobe' are equivalent insults from OJ

PricklyBall Sat 07-Oct-17 15:49:32

That'd be Owen Jones who threw a hissy fit when asked whether he'd have sex with a transman (not asked completely out of the blue in a gratuitous invasion of his privacy, as he would have you suppose, but in the context of a discussion where he was re-tweeting a transwoman who believes lesbians who won't suck dick are transphobic).

By his own definition of transphobia, that makes him transphobic, surely?

KatherinaMinola Sat 07-Oct-17 15:51:44

OJ is not the Voice of Socialism though, even though he'd like to be. And that (along with the misogyny) is one of the reasons he attacks people like Helen Lewis and Glosswitch - because he perceives them as competition. It's a bizarre kind of megalomania.

cuirderussie Sat 07-Oct-17 15:54:58

Countess yes but they're mostly focussed on the centrist issue and Owen being a general bellend rather than refuting his transphobia accusations I think. David Aaranovitch is good tho

Youcanttaketheskyfromme Sat 07-Oct-17 16:32:44

Especially disgusted with the protests that men wouldn't and haven't used being transgenderism as a way to gain access to vulnerable women.

He also retweeted a thread justifying the assault by 4 males on a 60 year old woman at Speakers' Corner.

PatMullins Sat 07-Oct-17 16:40:39

Has anyone yet tweeted and reminded him of when he said he wouldn’t have sex with a transman?

AssignedPerfectAtBirth Sat 07-Oct-17 16:45:34

He's currently blocking a whole load of people. Good fun to be had early evening Saturday

Butterymuffin Sat 07-Oct-17 17:01:16

He's now RTing supportive messages including this one:

The majority of feminists support trans rights and I'm tired of this handful of reactionaries claiming to speak on all women's behalf.

Do they not see the irony that a handful of trans activists are being allowed to do just that, and to define what feminism is, being a woman is, what gender is, what transphobia is - on behalf of all other women?

AssignedPerfectAtBirth Sat 07-Oct-17 17:13:07

If 'centrist' and 'transphobe' are equivalent insults from the new left ideology, I'm ok with being called them

ArcheryAnnie Sat 07-Oct-17 17:17:48

Is there any time when Owen Jones isn't having a tantrum?

doctorcuntybollocks Sat 07-Oct-17 17:24:38

When he's asleep, possibly.

Thats the one. You know, its kind of embarrassing to admit but I used to love Owen Jones. The whole 'eww cunnilungus' after berating lesbians for not wanting to suck dick was a huge turning point for me and opened my eyes to how hes just as much of a huge hypocrite as the rest of them, and now I find him a bit slimey tbh.

I notice when he goes off on one, its always transwomens feelings he is concerned about, not the feelings of transmen. A few replies on there are going on about how transmen want to be in male facilities and such...which dioesn't seem to be true. The few accounts of transmens experiences that I have read (oddly, there doesn't seem to be much out there about transmen, its transwomen who shout the loudest and get the platform in general) they do NOT want into male spaces, but feel they should support transwomen in their fights.

He called lesbians 'whatever' in a pro-LGBT article once too! angry
