"Shocking images on the site show an individual flashing while sitting in a train carriage, in a public park and at a bus stop.

Another photograph shows male genitals being exposed in an office close to a curved wooden desk that is strikingly similar to a picture of a work desk that Ms Bradley posted on her Facebook page. "

The photo have been archived on archive.is, you can search there under the domain exhbitionizm.tumblr.com and include lots of flashing shots.

Bradley has commented:

" I appreciate at this time there is a lot of speculation about my conduct and I am able to tell you that I am confident that none of my behaviour has been unlawful, and that I have not engaged in sexual activity with anyone, or in the view of anyone, without their consent. "

Isn’t this the same person one of the newspapers had trouble finding for an interview? Should have poked around the bushes in the parks, I guess.

Suddenly the motives behind Bradley's wish to release all trans prisoners become clear. Remind me again why I'm supposed to be OK with h** and people like h** in the loos and changing rooms with women and girls?

So if they were arrested for this would flashing their penis be recorded as a male or female crime?

They have posted a statement jessbradleystatement.wordpress.com

I wonder if it was a carriage on the Caledonian sleeper, where Bradley flashed those male genitals.

Sounds very much like an admission.

Dirty bastard.

Weird inconsistent capitalisation in that statement, not a good look for a student officer, however much a pervert.

OrchidInTheSun Sun 29-Jul-18 04:15:24

Wow. That's a massive own goal. Always thought he looked like a creep and lo, he is. Wonder what lil OJ has to say

EmpressOfSpartacus Sun 29-Jul-18 04:18:34

And self ID would mean that males could flash in women's changing rooms, dormitories etc & it would be almost impossible for women to object.

OrchidInTheSun Sun 29-Jul-18 06:16:03

I note that Bradley has hired Carter Ruck. Guess mummy and daddy are paying for that as I'd imagine the £24k NUS salary doesn't stretch to those kind of lawyers

StealthPolarBear Sun 29-Jul-18 06:17:41

So she was flashing her female penis? Women are just getting worse and worse.

Comment was by Sky News,
"It wasn't easy finding Jess. Most trans people we approached were reluctant to go on camera..................."

Jess Bradley was interviewed as part of the focus on GRA.

Jess Bradley was one of a limited number of people who were invited to give evidence to Maria Miller's transgender equality inquiry.

So the basis for the review of the GRA and making it easier to get into womens safe spaces is in large part based on testimony from someone who apparently gets their jollies exposing themselves in public

OrchidInTheSun Sun 29-Jul-18 06:37:52

Yep Bradley gave evidence and is director of Action for Trans Health which receives government funding. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/action-for-trans-health-activists-want-free-sex-change-hormones-for-children-dhvv5c52v

His page doesn't just have photos of his cock. It also includes some horribly disturbing references to rape, paedophilia and incest. I think a note to Miller and Mordaunt is in order.

FloralBunting Sun 29-Jul-18 06:56:53

Conduct was lawful, apparently. And no one saw without consenting.

Because, as a NUS officer, being above reproach and not showing your cock in public is such a fine line to tread. Women struggle so much with not getting their cock out in public. They need compassion for this problem, not judgement.

StepBackNow Sun 29-Jul-18 06:58:58

Grotesque.

Still Spartacus.

Turph Sun 29-Jul-18 07:01:29

Wow. If it's lawful and therefore not a problem, why delete everything and hire the big guns? I hope other news agencies pick up on this, unfortunately many people will discount anything from the Mail without even reading it.

Bowlofbabelfish Sun 29-Jul-18 07:13:08

The attempted silencing of the press on this is worrying - who is paying for the lawyers here? They’re not exactly a high street firm are they? I’d be very interested to see who is paying the the legal bills.

Anyway, a very interesting set of alleged offences. And interesting phrasing in the DM article as well. Note the difference in language from articles a year or so ago - there’s no reference to ‘feminists’ as if they were some sort of terrible thing. Note also the way the assault on Maria McLachlan is talked about.

It’s not a forgiving article at all is it? That’s a real change in tone.

As if he'd necessarily know whether a woman (or anyone, really) saw him. The entire thrill of something like this is that someone could "catch" you in the act and have a reaction that gets you off even more.

This is the kind of thing that should be all it takes for people to revise their opinion of whether perhaps there's something to women objecting to these men in our spaces. Unfortunately, it's going to take a lot more than this.
