Challenge to Diva magazine and Bi Pandas: show us the receipts

So, after the disgraceful actions by the London Bi Pandas, complete with masks, fetish gear, broom handles and smoke bombs, attacking the Labour Pledge women's meeting near Grenfell this week, , Diva magazine has now printed a lovely bit of DARVO, with an article celebrating the actions of the protesters, and claiming that (surprise!) they were the ones attacked:

Protesters reported anti-trans attendees barging past them, and getting confrontational – pushing protesters, snatching placards and trying to grab phones out of protesters’ hands, whilst defended by their own stewards. Notably, these confrontational stewards and attendees were mostly white, cis men attacking vulnerable people fighting for their basic rights. The women of WPUK and LGB Alliance watched and laughed at these horrific acts or worse still joined in. It is these sort of misogynistic and patriarchal behaviours that trans inclusive feminists are trying to expose bring an end to.

Now, many of the trans activist protesters were filming the event, and almost everybody present on both sides will have had a phone on them. Therefore I'm sure it will be no trouble at all for the Bi Pandas and Diva to show proof of their claims that they were attacked, just as there's plenty of footage of them attacking the meeting currently circulating.

I'm sure it will be no trouble at all. The thread's open. We're all interested here, I'm sure.

Oh no, I was expecting lots of footage to have turned up by now!

I hope legal action is taken (assuming no apology).

barging past them

Seriously? So when men deliberately got in their way these women didn't back down and continued towards their destination?

What a horrific act these disrespectful hussies committed. Also they argued back apparently! How dare they "get confrontational" in the face of masked men screaming abuse at them and letting off smoke bombs in the Grenfell estate?

And even this weak accusation apparently isn't true. Diva magazine should just change their name to Darvo magazine.

Lucky children, to live in such a safe bubble where, barging past them, and getting confrontational, pushing protesters, snatching placards and trying to grab phones out of protesters’ hands, or worse, being laughed at, constitute horrific acts.

Letting off smoke bombs on the Grenfell Estate edges a lot closer to horrific acts, than being laughed at by the grown-ups.

Saw someone accuse feminists of being responsible for a horrible email being sent to one of the Labour women running for the leadership. The whole thing was a disgusting male rape fantasy, so clearly not written by a feminist or a male supporter of feminism. And the notion that feminists are somehow making aggressive men send rape fantasies to female politicians is utterly absurd.

Just as absurd as this.

Gosh, I am surprised it's taking so long. They must all be at work still.

What meanies these women are.

Imagine some guys arived dressed up in masks and flashing penis outfits and hurling smoke bombs and then the women were so mean as to not find it all great fun.
What is wrong with modern women. 🤦‍♀️

I have wine AND gin

Redshoeblueshoe Thu 12-Mar-20 00:44:18

You say Diva
And I say Davro

Let's call the whole thing off

Poor little babas, all they were doing was fighting for their basic rights.
Has anyone ever explained what basic rights these people don’t have or is it just a catch phrase which doesn’t bear close examination?

<Hauls bean bag over>

Anyone for a Slow gin?

It's gonna be a long wait...

DickKerrLadies Thu 12-Mar-20 08:08:11

Haha! Have they just completely reversed that?

DickKerrLadies Thu 12-Mar-20 08:08:34

I think the 500 words story competition ended last week Diva, sorry.

wrongsideofhistorymyarse Thu 12-Mar-20 08:43:35

Still no answer? Well colour me shocked.

Some men really do think it equates violence when women say "no". What a bunch of wankers.

TheProdigalKittensReturn Fri 13-Mar-20 08:54:22

I'm sorry, I just can't take any group called the Bi Pandas seriously. Are they furries? Are they implying that bisexual people are an endangered species incapable of producing young without assistance from our loving bamboo-providing caretakers?
