Not sure if this has already been posted. Lily Madigan, the women's officer, saying that a group of women they disagree with can go fuck themselves. Labour are a fucking joke.

How much is it there days? How cheap can you do a wedding? Sounds like a TV show...

ChattyLion Sat 13-Oct-18 02:24:55

it isn’t free of charge to actually get married or civil partnered either. Isn’t that going to be a problem too then, because of needing to buy a licence or whatever?

Budgieinaberet Sat 13-Oct-18 00:07:42

Ok
This might get me banned
But maybe Lil doesn't want to upset the girlfriend
Because maybe Lils girl friend ain't a lesbian
And Lil and Lils girl friend both want Lil to keep it's penis

And I've screenshot my post before posting grin

That gripping Elle event also includes:

Green Party MP AMEILIA WOMACK

Only she isn’t an MP, is she?

So their grasp of political reality is a bit tenuous all round 🙄

I found the emphasis on "irreversible " as a problem interesting.

Yes indeed.

If you were committed to transitioning and living as a woman the rest of your life, why would you worry a about irreversible action? Unless you had doubts. And if you had doubts, you would not get a GRC as you hadn't got sufficient commitment.

As a side point to that, one of the arguments regarding self ID is supposed to be limited in its scope over reversibility so people can't take the piss and it just removes gatekeepers. But the process of a GRC means you are less likely to get people applying for one, who are likely to reverse.

Self ID in this way, makes it more likely to be exploited as it will be viewed as a temporary thing not a permanent thing. Which undermines the system for those who are permies rather than daytrippers by devaluing the 'currency' of a GRC in the eyes of society.

Could it be that Lily doesn't have a diagnosis of gender dysphoria?

sorenipples Fri 12-Oct-18 22:17:38

I recall thst she sent in the GRC to get her passport.

There was a recent tweet that she had already transitioned, and any guess what that did or didn't mean was superficial. Less than a month earlier she was about to start hormones. I can understand her thoughts on this may be evolving so I don't see it as an inconsistency.

I complained about the misogynistic nature of LM 's behaviour and how as a woman's officer they are basically anti-woman.
I got a reply from
Complaints@labour.org.uk

Containing the message
...you are right to bring [The Tweets] to our attention, however after assessing the content they are not a breach of Labour Party rules. If you feel the content is not suitable conduct on twitter the I suggest you report the post to twitter to asses against their guidelines.

I just get the feeling the Labour party are laughing at us.

FesteringCarbuncle Fri 12-Oct-18 22:17:11

Surely LM would just crowd fund or beg like LM does for everything else
Or ask Angela Raynor who is so bloody fawning she would cough up the cash in return for an invite

sorenipples Fri 12-Oct-18 22:09:12

It does appear to be an attempt to piggyback off public sympathy for gay marriage. It's clearly not the same.

I found the emphasis on "irreversible " as a problem interesting.

GenderApostate Fri 12-Oct-18 22:07:51

I’m fairly sure Lily stated they had a GRC at least a year ago - caught lying again Lily? Tut Tut. What would Cara Delvigne say?

RedToothBrush Fri 12-Oct-18 22:07:41

So lily is admitting that they don't have a grc after all the times saying they do. Fascinating.

Get a grc.

You don't have to change your body (there are people with a grc who don't. Indeed the ECHR ruled that you didn't have to). You just have to have a diagnosis of gender dysphoria and live as a woman.

And it doesn't cost a fortune. Its £140 and you can apply for help paying it, if you are on benefits or low income.

For someone who has said they managed to blag a place at Goldsmiths rather another university because some one off twitter put money up for them to do it, and has blagged numerous trips to foreign countries and frequency has put up their just giving details for clothes and food, I'm struggling to see how Lily would have difficulty raising that amount.

Unless, Lily is a good old fashioned scammed or worst still, is still secretly being funded by the bank of mum and dad but doesn't want to admit it as it'd damage their street cred.

Yeah. Just another lie to add to the long list of 'alternative facts' Lily propagates.

Yawn.

Seriously has Lily Ever told the truth? They'll make a fucking fab MP. Got all the right skills!

Budgieinaberet Fri 12-Oct-18 22:05:20

But I thought Lily had just had an expensive holiday

AssassinatedBeauty Fri 12-Oct-18 22:02:21

(A GRC costs £140 and you can apply for support with the cost of you are on low income or on benefits.)

Budgieinaberet Fri 12-Oct-18 22:02:00

Of course LM can get married, unless all the laws changed today and I missed it

InfidelForever Fri 12-Oct-18 22:01:32

Is this person really representative of the loony left? I despair

MaisyPops Fri 12-Oct-18 22:01:20

sorenipples
Is that an open admission that LM doesn't actually want to change their body to be, say, like a woman's body? Even though they are an actual literal woman.

I totally support trans women who transition to alleviate their dysphoria and can feel comfortable in their ' ew' female body (yes I know chromosomes, not actual female.reproductive systems etc but we all know what I mean). I can't get my head around having a male body, male sex organs but being a 'woman' whilst not actually wanting to resemble the female form.

AssassinatedBeauty Fri 12-Oct-18 21:59:13

You have to state your sex when getting married.

A GRC is not prohibitively expensive, and absolutely doesn't require any irreversible altering of the person's body.

If a spouse vetos a GRC then you simply get divorced, then get your GRC. It's not rocket science.

sorenipples Fri 12-Oct-18 21:54:15

Because she doesn't want to get married with gender recorded as male.

TwistedStitch Fri 12-Oct-18 21:52:10

I'm guessing Lily wants a lesbian wedding.

RedToothBrush Fri 12-Oct-18 21:50:33

Can someone explain how my trans sibling managed to get married?

Or was it a fake or illegal wedding?

NopeNi Fri 12-Oct-18 21:44:28

Doesn't seem right.

NopeNi Fri 12-Oct-18 21:44:17

Apparently Lily can't get married unless self-ID is put into law. Is that right?

Budgieinaberet Fri 12-Oct-18 21:30:31

Exactly Red, the I am the most oppressed person ever, in the entire history of the universe is rather tedious.

sorenipples Fri 12-Oct-18 21:24:13

This presumably is a paid engagement

All very odd if the above account of lack of involvement in CLP is true. Is she officially representing the labour party or can any member represent themselves as "the labour party's xxxxxx?
