Former one, left when I became a "non man"

Again, former but left when I discovered I wasn't a woman after all. Non-man = non - direct debit.

Me too

Bit of an oxymoron?

CisMyArse Sun 28-Jan-18 17:47:55

Nope. I, along with my direct debit went 'poof' when they zapped me into non-man-non-existence.

Fuck you Green Party.

Another former non-male Green Party member here.

Life long voter/supporter, but not a member here. Well, former voter I should say...

UpABitLate Sun 28-Jan-18 17:56:24

And me, left when I became non man.

DancingLedge Sun 28-Jan-18 18:00:25

Always meant to tell the Green Party why I left, but in fact never did so.

Did anyone?

TallulahWaitingInTheRain Sun 28-Jan-18 18:03:17

No, now you mention it, I just deleted the dd and flounced.

drspouse Sun 28-Jan-18 18:03:40

Not a member but a voter - we have a decent councillor here, but I should probably write to them. Any links to their policy?

BeyondWitchbitchterf Sun 28-Jan-18 18:04:27

I did on Twitter. Meant to follow it up with a letter but didn't bother after the tumbleweed I got in response online. Clearly they gave zero shits.

Justabunchofcunts Sun 28-Jan-18 18:05:58

Bloody hell I just found that old tweet and then came back to the thread. Unbelievable!!!! About to sort dinner will be back later.

Yes definitely feels like time to make our voice heard!

I cancelled my membership a year and a half ago.

I said, "I would like to cancel my membership. The green party's stance on transgender issues is not something I support and do not want my name to be a part of it."

It looks like I deleted the email I received in reply, but it was something along the lines of "sorry to see you go, we'll forward your concerns on to the relevant people blah blah blah"

I was only a paid up member for over a year, and am not particularly political in the first place, so I wasn't overly upset to cancel.

LineySt Sun 28-Jan-18 18:26:24

I'm in that wilderness too.

hipsterfun Sun 28-Jan-18 19:05:07

I just read the Green Party’s Responsibilities & Rights.

I won’t be voting for them in the local elections again.

UpABitLate Sun 28-Jan-18 20:17:57

That is a VERY interesting link, hipster.

No I won't be voting for them again either.

I note that there is no section for women's rights - is that on a different page do you know? Or, do they not bother with those?

UpABitLate Sun 28-Jan-18 20:18:44

Shit sorry they'd call it uterus havers rights or something I suppose?

Or would it be non mens rights?

Femme presenting people's rights?


UpABitLate Sun 28-Jan-18 20:20:09

You know, when it comes to prostitution, they always talk about "decriminalisation".

Because, if they were to legalise it, it's immediately have to be all shut down on health and safety grounds.

I'd call it silly if it wasn't so fucking stupid.

UpABitLate Sun 28-Jan-18 20:23:34

I've been searching and I don't think they have any mention of or policy about women at all.

I must admit I expected to find one somewhere but I honestly don't think there is one.

Fucking hell.

MorrisZapp Sun 28-Jan-18 20:30:18

Well, fuck that then. Its there in black and white. Womens sport to be erased in a generation.

As regards the 'non men' though, I don't want this to become the TERF's winterval. Who said it, when, and where does it apply?

I ranted at a Scottish green once and they denied all knowledge. I ended up looking a bit silly.

underapolestar Sun 28-Jan-18 20:34:50

They’re as bad as Labour especially in Scotland. Their Scottish leader Patrick Harvie is a misogynistic wee shit. He recently compared a concerned gender critical constituent who asked him to host a meeting to discuss women’s concerns to an Islamophobe or pro lifer. The Scottish Greens are firmly in the ‘transwomen are women #nodebate’ camp.

Justabunchofcunts Sun 28-Jan-18 20:38:57

Morris, it was the Green Party Young Women's arm. Link:

Interestingly at that time it was evidently still seen as socially acceptable for the Independent to discuss, and even lead with, the women's rights angle. Oh how that has now changed.
