Shon Faye event - Bradford 18th November

There's a Women of the World Festival a couple of hours away from me
on 18th November. On the programme is an event called 'Trans identities - how does transactivism interact with the movement for gender equality?' Shon Faye is apparently headlining.

I'm going to it with my 13 year old daughter. Anyone else going?

Shon Faye is one of those 'But I'm a feminist too because I am a woman' isn't he/she?

Anyone have any background?

Please don't tell me there are no women in Yorkshire who can attend this event.

Also see what he said to Miranda Yardley:

Took me a while to find it as it's a screenshot.

Lavender Blume's Twitter feed is great. She is really pissed off and not afraid to tell it like it is.

They are totally and utterly blind to their own sickness.

Yes, and they go too far, because they don't have any sense of what too far looks like.

Datun Sun 15-Oct-17 10:22:46

There is a horrible fascination to it.

We have had a couple of narcissistic transwomen on here, along with the generally very sensible ones.

Their issues and blindness leap out every other sentence. They don't see it.

This is back to the issue about credible sources.

novaramedia.com/2016/04/17/is-it-time-to-abolish-masculinity/

"Deuteronomy is one of the earliest examples of male and female gender roles being crystallised into something more than biology".

What the fuck does that even mean. Is a time line of human civilisation needed as well. No wonder Shon had a spat with the historian Tom Holland. What absolute shit.

Here's Shon Faye when he was Sean Faye. Doesn't seem to have shown much imagination when it comes to choosing a new name:

Blimey, what a nasty piece of work. Thanks for the links.

DJBaggySmalls Sun 15-Oct-17 18:14:36

What Shon Faye says to Miranda Yardley and lesbians is exactly what the Nazis said to Jews.
'we will eradicate you and no one will know you existed'.

"Transmisogyny is misogyny intensified"

I'll just get myself a talking gig at a paraplegic group and tell them how they don't actually have it that bad after all.

Ereshkigal Sun 15-Oct-17 18:59:42

Yes, absolutely. "Having the use of your legs yet wishing you could use a wheelchair and no one cares is so much worse than being given a wheelchair due to your disability status, you privileged people!"

I am in Yorkshire and in the mood for a fight. I've put this in my diary but would appreciate some company. Not sure I'm brave enough to speak up in the questions on my own. The OP is obviously nearby. Anyone else fancy it.

pigsknickers Sun 15-Oct-17 20:24:00

Wrappedup I'm just a little bit too far away to make it work unfortunately, but I wish you luck from a remote corner of Yorkshire. I know quite a few lib-fems from Bradford who I expect will be there cheering SF on too sad

WitchBitchHarpyTerfThatsMe Sun 15-Oct-17 20:33:02

wrappedup I went on the website and you buy day passes to get into the events. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to speak up alone either but I'm very interested to see how the event goes off.
