Quite extraordinary rant. In response to the 'GetTheLOut' protest at LondonPride.

Children's Convenor. I kid you not.

So is he a transman or is just a bloke identifying as non binary.

V confused. If a transman he's done a great job of getting the lingo down. Very convincing as a misogynst male.

Bumbungo Tue 24-Jul-18 14:47:15

I think the councillor is a transwoman actually

Claims to be non-binary on everything I've seen of them/they.

UpstartCrow Tue 24-Jul-18 14:56:40

Councillor Philip Scotts quote makes it sound like this is not the first time.

beenandgoneandbackagain Tue 24-Jul-18 14:57:05

Bloke wanting to be speshul but too scared to die his hair blue . . . .

I wouldn't let him anywhere near kids, or vulnerable people (and I include genuine gender dysphoric transmen and transwomen with vulnerable people)

From a Facebook page appears to be associated with the Scouts.
Do they have an bad language badge?

ijustwannadance Tue 24-Jul-18 15:07:00

Yet another person whose utter hatred for women is so glaringly fucking obvious, but nothing happens because they bring out the trans card.

nauticant Tue 24-Jul-18 15:07:51

No, I don't think he is likely to be a positive influence on young people. Look at this guff:

Apologies, he says he's a Scout Leader on his twitter page, didn't notice that. No need to go to Facebook
.

BarrackerBarmer Tue 24-Jul-18 15:11:46

Just your bog standard beardy woman-hater who is feverishly excited at being able to publicly display his sexism and have it applauded as progressive.

NotTerfNorCis Tue 24-Jul-18 15:25:03

Definitely a man. He was in the news last year for calling a women's group 'absolute roasters'. www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/1281707/snp-councillor-equalities-womens-group-absolute-roasters/

Carecomplet Tue 24-Jul-18 15:26:18

Is Gregor's holiday over yet?? Matter to be discussed upon return according to the article. Can't believe use of C word to describe a group of women. Absolutely hateful behaviour.

R0wantrees Tue 24-Jul-18 15:36:55

The article says 'Councillor Philip Scott, who also sits on the children and families services committee, said the latest actions “do not look good at all” for the administration

He said: “You would have thought Gregor would have learned from previous occasions that this really is not a good example to be setting.'

Scottiish Women twitter comment
"@ DundeeCouncil are introducing Free Sanitary products within their schools for 'those who menstruate'. The words 'girl', 'woman' or 'female' do not feature once in the report. Transgender men and NB do though. @grogipher is the chair of the committee that approved it.

An equalities spokesperson who calls women 'c*nts' and 'roasters', uses language like 'feminist shite' and thinks 50/50 Representation is p***. A councillor who approves a report about period poverty in schools and somehow erases all traces of girls and young women from it."

enoughisenough12 Tue 24-Jul-18 15:54:11

Wow. It's not a good look is it?
Managing to produce a report about sanitary products without using the words girl, woman or female but including transgender men and NB?
Vile and abusive language aimed at women and yet - they are still a children's convenor ?

Edward Lord's public roles edwardlord.org/about/

Lord recently commented,
"And let me be quite clear, the message of those eight individuals who claimed to represent a ‘silenced majority’ of lesbians who want to #GettheLOut of the LGBT community saying that they feel oppressed by trans women, is nothing short of man-hating, trans-hating bigoted bunkum. The #LwiththeT social media backlash of many hundreds of lesbians standing proudly alongside their trans siblings has put the lie to the TERF claim that they represent anyone other than their own unpleasant selves"

Edward Lord was recently interviewed on BBC about the Hampstead Heath Pools.

Say what you like about social media, but it does act as an infinitely long piece of rope by which absolute wankers like this may eventually hang themselves.

Ereshkigal Tue 24-Jul-18 15:56:42

Indeed!

enoughisenough12 Tue 24-Jul-18 16:18:58

I saw Edward Lord 'commenting' that TWAW as a City of London Corporation representative when talking about the Hampstead women's pond. I wondered why a supposed representative was taking such a one sided view given they supposedly represent the corporation - and now we know why.
Evidently charities, government, the civil service, corporations, the police are just the personal tools that certain individuals and groups are using to change society for their own ends? I have always looked at conspiracy theorists with considerable scepticism but looking at this whole debacle their reach is considerable isn't it?

Looking at the attendees of Dundee's Children and Family Services Committee's meeting of 26/2/18, there appear to be 16 men, including our hero, on that committee and 3 women. It is possible that not all members were at that meeting However it seems a terrible balance especially since it's the Children and Family Services Committee
You would have hoped that at least on of the members might have queried the language.
We ought to ask every single member why the words women and girls are not used.
I hope the literature associated with the period poverty scheme will not just refer to menstruators or those who menstruate. An 11 year old girl in need of the scheme may not know that she is one of those.
It's all so ridiculous.

I get even more annoyed when you look at the remarks made at the recent Fawcett Society meeting about getting more women into politics ie they would be happy with a Parliament comprising 50% men and 50% transwomen

FermatsTheorem Tue 24-Jul-18 16:28:53

What a horribly misogynistic little man he is. I certainly wouldn't want a child of mine falling under his influence.

nauticant Tue 24-Jul-18 16:35:16

Him and Harrop needs to get together to try to solve Garam's Paradox.

KwatahPanda Tue 24-Jul-18 16:43:32

Interesting though as other than Jack Monroe I can't think of anyone over the age of 18 that identifies as Non binary. You expect adults to realise how utterly ridiculous it is.

FermatsTheorem Tue 24-Jul-18 16:44:58

nauticant I don't think it would solve the paradox. Because we'd have
lady d + gentleman d + 69 =?

Is it like matter and anti-matter? Would the universe implode.

ijustwannadance Tue 24-Jul-18 16:46:50

Funny how they claim to hate toxic masculinity whilst it seeps from every pore, and claim to be feminists, yet the only women they care about are those with a penis.
