Bristol University Trans Activists

It’s wonderful and inspiring to see how many of you are helping Raquel Rosario Sanchez with the digging - I just looked and there are more than thirteen thousand flowers!

On a less wonderful and inspiring note, it’s a good time to revisit the ‘work’ of the Bristol student transactivists.

Here’s the ‘ban terfs’ motion proposed by the Feminist Society, which was passed in Feb 2018. Attach

Nicci Shall/Nic Aaron, the student in the disciplinary case the uni opened then mysteriously closed ‘for reasons unrelated to the merits of the case’:

Being forcibly removed by police at Jam Jar meeting (red glasses):

Knocking the terribly missed Magdalen Berns’ phone out of her hand:

Blocking Dr Heather Brunskell-Evans, Julie Bindel and Jeni Harvey on the stairs at the Jam Jar:

Prior to identifying as trans and being a trans activist, Shall was involved in Kids Company. She testified at the 2014 trial of a KC psychologist that she, the psychologist and a young service user were all in a nightclub toilet cubicle together. The psychologist and the service user took some but Shall said she did not, despite having made a joint decision with the psychologist to buy it:

In 2019, after the uni disciplinary, Shall appeared at Swindon Magistrates Court charged with criminal damage and using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour:

www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/news/17547310.protestor-accused-of-damaging-mobile-phone-at-yellow-vest-protest-appears-in-court/

The charges were dismissed - perhaps helped by the fact that Shall brought a barrister from Hodge Jones and Allen, the same firm Shall brought to the uni disciplinary hearing: www.crowdjustice.com/case/trans-student-faces-expulsion-uob/

Another Bristol student trans activist, Sian, had to be removed by campus security after standing on the table and refusing to get down while Sian’s friends stopped the talk from starting:

www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/protesters-filmed-interrupting-talk-transgender-2247064

Sadly for Sian, the attention-seeking act of disrupting a public event by refusing to get off a table, er, drew attention. This meant that, when the uni’s women-only feminist society planned a public event, Sian had no choice but to ask the uni to ban the public from filming and photography at the event, because Sian needed to protest it and was worried that his protest at a public event would be filmed. The uni agreed. Rather than advise Sian that an effective way to avoid being filmed doing something silly is, er, not not to do it and instead ask an intelligent question to the panel, or perhaps to ask Sian if Sian had thought the value of a protest act that no-one is allowed to see or discuss, the uni told the Women Talk Back! Society, a couple of days before the event, that if they didn’t ban filming and photography they couldn’t hold the meeting.

Sian also turned up to a women’s consciousness-raising session demanding admittance despite it being clearly described as female-only.

There’s probably more but losing the will to live a bit.. going to admire Raquel’s flowers instead.

You're welcome - the elitism really winds me up when you have someone like Shall, graduate of Cambridge and LSE, targeting Raquel R-S who's come from US state university.

Shall also threw a drink in Helen Steel's face and called her a Nazi:

It's shocking that they got away with doing all this.Some of it is very hard to watch, especially when they were blocking the stairs.

Was it Shall that really didn't like being called a posh boy?

Shall wasn’t posh boy. Shall rather strongly objected to someone who didn’t know them using “she for Shall.
At the time of the kid’s company involvement the drug taking Shall observed was in the women’s loos.

Are these dingbats now at the stage where they have left playschool and are looking for jobs on the real world, with grown ups?

Seeing as this old thread has popped up on Twitter -

"Sian also turned up to a women’s consciousness-raising session demanding admittance despite it being clearly described as female-only."
So, what did the Bristol Student Union do about this - of course, they sanctioned the women's group and their president, Raquel RS.

To me it looks like a pattern of harassment carried out by the people who like to jump on tables, but no, the women are the ones who are wrong... UK 2021, where women may not meet and discuss without males present.

I would put money on them remaining in academia forever. So, no.

I know this is a zombie thread, but I've ended up here from Raquel's Crowdjustice page.

@ArabellaScott, I amused myself yesterday afternoon, after I'd read Raquel's horrifying witness statement, of looking on LinkedIn at where some of these students have ended up. Nicest thing to say would be that an expensive education has been comprehensively spaffed up the wall; and I say that as one who believes in education for education's sake.....

This is an interesting thread. Raquel argued that the university's stance was v pro gender identity campaigners and anti feminism based on sex, and this informed their treatment of her. That these ppl were given free reign suggests that was true.


As AA has been mentioned, the judge in raquel's case said that identifying them (ie giving their name) by mistake or on purpose is not allowed. Just pointing it out because I don't want this thread to be deleted.

The ‘Women Talk Back’ society are suing the Bristol student union for trying to shut down women-only activities.

An excerpt from their allotments page:

^“Overall, we are claiming that women are statistically more likely to be the victims of sex discrimination, sexual harassment and violence perpetrated by members of the opposite sex and more likely to have concerns over their safety, dignity and privacy. Women therefore have a particular need for a single-sex forum like ours in which these issues can be discussed, and a particular need for services like ours which support them with these issues.
The BSU eventually punished us for explicitly relying on the single-sex exemptions in schedule 3 of the Equality Act 2010. Our insistence on providing single-sex services was considered a failing on our part which required a coercive remedy in the form of equality and diversity training.”^
