Oh I forgot judges punishing women for NOT lying in court

Thanks for confirming in writing GMP that there is no violence, murder, intimidation or any real physical risk to trans people in Manchester, and that what you and the TRAs mean by 'hate crime' really is women speaking out about their rights.

Because clearly, from that tweet, that's all you have to worry about. And police only mind about this behaviour in women. It's specific. Police are fully on the side of using slurs against women to suppress their freedom and rights to debate, to leaflet, to meet, and to speak the truth. Men can crack on, that's fine.

How the hell are the Home Office or whatever the hell they call themselves this week indulging this? It couldn't be more blatantly sexist, politically partisan and offensive.

Yes that was a WTAF moment.

Gove is a MP and LGBT police went after his wife recently. I don't think this will encourage him to vote for self-ID.

WTF? Do you mean the actual police?

A non apology from Manchester police....

From this article ...

‘Terf stands for trans-exclusionary radical feminist. Online, it often it appears alongside violent rhetoric: punch a Terf, stab a Terf, kill a Terf. This language is used to dehumanise women who are critical of gender as part of a political system. Many of the women called Terf are, like Bellos, lesbian. These lesbians are increasingly demonised by the wider LGBT+ community, or ignored in order to avoid the controversy altogether.’

This is really really shocking. Depressing as hell

Charliethefeminist Sun 07-Oct-18 21:00:57

Makes you realise how quickly, if self ID comes in, women who demur will be hunted down and punished. They are ready, waiting and enthusiastic.

Reminder of the excellent concept of the "TERF translator". Every time you see "TERF", mentally substitute "woman/women who say something I don't like" and see how the resulting tweet/poster/slogan reads aloud.

So: "Punch a woman who says things I don't like", "stab a woman who says things I don't like", "women who say things I don't like should die in a fire..."

I find it a very revealing exercise. Very, very revealing indeed.

Silly buggers. Don’t they realise that our society depends on public respect for the police.

There are going to be few jobs, they want women out of the workforce.

If only the police turned up as quickly if you report a real crime. Maybe they quite like policing hate crime as it's an easy collar for them and they're all on targets now aren't they?

SPOFS Sun 07-Oct-18 21:28:02

Who can we complain to about this?

Labradoodliedoodoo Sun 07-Oct-18 21:28:08

What an offensive tweet. So women with concerns around the gender act are ordered to stay away from Manchester. And the police back this?

Labradoodliedoodoo Sun 07-Oct-18 21:31:36

Do the police realise that turf is a slur. A derogatory term used for women who are concerned for women’s rights.

SirVixofVixHall Sun 07-Oct-18 21:33:04

War on women.
Agree totalitarianism. Essentially it read as “ women who say we things we don’t like are not allowed in this part of town” .
I am finding this escalation genuinely frightening.

NotTerfNorCis Sun 07-Oct-18 21:33:58

'No terfs on our turf.'

'In no way are we inciting violence against anyone.'

So how exactly do they suggest removing gender critical women from their 'turf'?

HandsOffMyRights Sun 07-Oct-18 21:39:18

Well this is how trans ally Craig will do it

I don't think I've ever seen a gender critical person threaten violence towards a trans person. I want them to have safety too, just not at the expense of women and girls safeguarding.
Yet I see constant threats towards t*rfs. Horrible vile stuff.
The police ought to know better than this.

Butterymuffin Sun 07-Oct-18 21:45:03

Nice to know the GMP have decided they don't have to serve and protect certain members of the population. I'm pretty sure that's not how the police service is supposed to work.

Ereshkigal Sun 07-Oct-18 21:47:34

"No women who say things I don't like on our turf"

DayMay Sun 07-Oct-18 21:47:43

Andy Burnham of Hillsborough fame is responsible for this people.

Labradoodliedoodoo Sun 07-Oct-18 21:49:55

So true. I’ve never heard a gender critical women threaten a transgender person.

arranfan Sun 07-Oct-18 21:53:56

This is a warning shot for Filia - the Women's Conference scheduled for 20-21 Oct. in Manchester.

Calling all feminist campaigners, activists, artists, academics and revolutionaries. Calling all women!
