Just spotted on Twitter that Women's Place are holding a meeting in Oxford next month. I don't think the tickets are on sale yet.

Is anyone on here going to go?

Hopefully yes - I’m in Glos and will happily lift share - would prefer to not drive if possible as driving for too long causes me excruciating hip pain.

Yes, definitely hoping to go, don’t think tickets on sale yet....

Anyone else going? 19 people from Henley constituency signed the self ID petition, and 24 from Oxford East, would be great to meet some of you !

I'm in the Henley CLP. I'm buying a ticket once they are on sale. I went to the Bristol one, it was really good.

I like the line ‘they sound so reasonable, don’t they?’ Before going on to compare WPUK to the Nazis. Looks like an admission that yes, WPUK are just asking for a reasoned discussion

Reductio ad Hitlerum is a form of association fallacy

American attorney and author Mike Godwin coined his eponymous law on Usenet in 1990
Godwin's law (or Godwin's rule of Hitler analogies)is an Internet adage that asserts that "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hitler approaches that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Adolf Hitler or his deeds. Promulgated by the American attorney and author Mike Godwin in 1990.

Got my ticket :-) went to the Birmingham one, it was brilliant.

Thanks for that, trousers, that is truly very interesting indeed! Reductio ad Hitlerum

I'm booked for this. Look forward to meeting some allies.
(It says babes in arms welcome, but is there any risk at all of physical/verbal attack from TRA's? I think I might need to book a 'sitter instead.)

I’ve bought a ticket and will come up from town for it (I really want to meet Dr Nic). Is there going to be a pub plan for beforehand?

cromeyellow0 Mon 16-Apr-18 17:30:23

@Somerville: I guess that it wouldn't be right to say there's no risk. There was no protest at Cambridge WPUK event, which should be most comparable. But the London WPUK event was protested by a few people and a woman had her glasses snatched (by an Oxford graduate perversely enough!).

If anyone lives locally I've attached a poster in case you'd like to print it out and put it up in a cafe, library, etc:

Oh unfortunately the poster has lost resolution when uploaded.

Could I just ask, is it woman only/are libfems welcome? (sorry for stupid Q, not familiar with these events!)

LangCleg Tue 17-Apr-18 08:16:12

Women, men and trans people are welcome at WPUK events. The only ask is that attendees are respectful, whether they agree or disagree with the speakers.

I'm laughing very hard at the idea that the Nazis sounded reasonable. No, they really didn't.

velourvoyageur Tue 17-Apr-18 08:21:43

Thank you Lang smile

LifelongVaginaOwner Thu 19-Apr-18 20:38:22

Ticket booked!

Anyone can go. They just ask you listen respectfully without heckling. There's a question and answer session at the end.
