Labour Party Women's Officer: "Go suck my big lady c*ck"
Everythingsgonebonkers · 14/10/2018 17:36
Not even one of the usual suspects:
Serfisafleur · 14/10/2018 17:41
I thought Lily Madigan and Heather Peto were the only trans women's officers. There's another one?
Never heard of this one Tanya Love.
How many are there now and why are they all so aggressive?
FermatsTheorem · 14/10/2018 17:47
How does the Labour party allow such a person to represent them in an official capacity?
ScarletBegonias · 14/10/2018 17:47
And why do they have so little interest in the well-being of women?
happydappy2 · 14/10/2018 17:48
what a charmer! Notice this was 19th August-have they been asked to explain their behaviour?
FekkoTheLawyer · 14/10/2018 17:49
Ohhh this one sent some very unpleasant messages to Maninpink via Twitter. He reposted them today. Nasty creature. How can they keep their jobs?

According to Tanya's Twitter, she was in a psychiatric ward for most of last year, and issues seem to go back longer. I am not sure that she is all that well. I am not sure Labour women's officer is the best role for her.

Wowza. Following that I looked up their profile, the screenshot tweet is from 19/8 and it’s not there now.
The full name on the profile is actually ‘Tanya Love (Women’s Officer Telford Labour Party)’.
Bit weird that this screenshot is suddenly shared 2 months later though?
FekkoTheLawyer · 14/10/2018 17:57
I wonder what my trans name would be? 🤔
Brett Butch? Hugh P Ennis? Ivor Biggin?
Cwenthryth · 14/10/2018 18:03
Ah here’s why.
Tanya made explicit and offensive comments to Hope Lye (Hope Pink). Hope reported to Telford Labour Party and got no response. Tanya has now been made a Woman’s Officer hence Hope sharing the screenshots.

Isn't it the time of year when the constituency Labour parties are electing their officers for the year? From my experience of volunteering, there are lots of cases where the only person to volunteer gets elected whether they're suitable for the job or not. I wonder if this was one.
FermatsTheorem · 14/10/2018 18:08
A little bit of digging later unearths a letter to the Daily Star back in July to which Love is one of the signatories, describing themselves as "former secretary, South Telford Labour Party" - so no longer on the books, for whatever reason.
Ironic that one of the acts of transphobia the letter draws attention to is "using the wrong pronouns" when one of the signatories invites "terfs" to choke on their "lady cock". Talk about cognitive dissonance.
(For information: my use of "their" is not cognitive dissonance, it is enforced compliance, so that my post does not get deleted. It does not indicate any actual belief on my part in this crazy ideology.)
GoldenBuns · 14/10/2018 18:16
I just don't get this. How is it that people like Posie Parker are being kicked off Twitter, FB and Mumsnet for expressing an opinion, but the abusive language and threats of TRAs are allowed to stand? That these people are being elevated to positions of power? It makes me feel sick with fear for my rights and my daughter's.
FermatsTheorem · 14/10/2018 18:20
Yup, that's about the size of it, Fekko. You can say anything you want about or to a woman on twitter - death threats, torture threats, rape threats, dismemberment threats. It will not be deleted. Because blokes are people and women are not in the twitter verse.
But try misgendering someone ... kaboom, banhammer.
Because women non-persons are not allowed to disrespect men persons.
OvaHere · 14/10/2018 18:21
Telford doesn't have a very good history regarding the protection of women and girls. They can add this to the list.
NotTerfNorCis · 14/10/2018 18:23
Only born females should be Women's Officers, not born males who for whatever reason like to be seen as female.
madcatladyforever · 14/10/2018 18:25
They are aggressive because they are men. I work with trans regularly in hospital years ago and a lot of the trans women were aggressive. Sweeping generalisation I know but enough was noted to have all of us nurses talking about it.
I'm not a nurse any more by the way.
Invisible1234 · 14/10/2018 18:25
This is really shocking...how can they allow Women's Officers like this?! How much care are they going to have about women?!
bluetitsaretits · 14/10/2018 18:28
There's not enough 'wtf's in the world to cover this shit.
How on earth are political parties continuing to use (mostly young) people who clearly have serious psychiatric problems to signal their 'wokeness' ?
There's no way they aren't aware of the potential problems by now.
It also seems like people who don't do twitter are oblivious to it all.
Surely this paricular style of political madness can't continue much longer, can it?
ZuttZeVootEeVro · 14/10/2018 18:30
Talk about cognitive dissonance.
More like talk about rape threats.
MrsBertBibby · 14/10/2018 18:33
Still on the CLP site
BettyDuMonde · 14/10/2018 18:34
If this isn’t a call go arms for women in all political parties to stand for positions, all positions, any positions, but particularly women’s officers (and if relevant, LGBT officer positions) then I don’t know what is.
LGBT officer is currently vacant in my CLP because no one wanted it last AGM...
