Awake, not Woke

Words have meanings and meanings matter. It makes no sense to allow a privileged group (men) to unilaterally redefine words in order to benefit themselves while simultaneously destroying the fundamental, hard-won human rights of a traditionally disadvantaged group (women), but here we are. This has already happened, in violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Most Canadians don’t even know that any male sex offender can walk into any girls locker room in the country, drop his pants, display fully functional male genitals, and if women or girls object, all he has to do is claim to be a “trans woman” to avoid prosecution for voyeurism or indecent exposure.

Nobody asked women if we wanted to legalize voyeurism & indecency in the single-sex female spaces where these crimes do the most harm. Ontario voters never had a say in the decision to let any man, even convicted sex offenders, falsify government documents and claim womanhood without any gatekeeping of any sort. We have a serious problem in that women’s rights have been systematically dismantled by stealth. We have an even bigger problem in that voters are powerless to rectify this heinous abuse of power. Voting only works in a democracy, but before the plutocrats head-hunted her to keep the truth out of the public eye, Chrystia Freeland let the cat out of the bag about who rules in Canada .

Canada is ruled by greedy billionaires who comprise the “donor class” and set the agenda for politicians to follow. Everyone old enough to have voted in a few election cycles will notice the way elections work in Canada and, truth be told, most other Western “democracies.” Promises are made to everyone, but promises made to the poor tend to fall by the wayside, fobbed off as “too expensive,” while benefits for the wealthy sail through parliament without a hitch. This is not a partisan problem of interest only to the left or the right.

The point here is that voting will never be enough to solve any of the serious problems we face. The primary problem that must be solved first – chronologically – is restoring the democratic power that was stolen from voters decades ago. This will require solidarity in the face of the polarizing Divide & Rule tactics of the ruling class. This is why when I point out that “trans women” are men and I’m accused of being a right-winger I don’t just spit out a knee-jerk denial. We won’t be able be able to successfully counter the divisive tactics used against us until we abandon tribalism and embrace single-issue solidarity.

For this reason, it is important for women to gather their courage and speak truth to power at every opportunity. I’ll be on the streets of Toronto next weekend to demand that the government of Canada stop colluding with sex offenders to enable sexual assaults of vulnerable female inmates in Canadian prisons for women. I stand with my incarcerated sisters because, given the way the government has abused peaceful protesters and political prisoners in recent years, there but for the grace of God go I.

I’m Done Being Kind

Not all men are sexual predators, but almost all sexual predators are male.

Since sexual predators, by definition, have multiple victims, all women learn how it feels to be prey, most of us long before reaching adulthood.

The first time I was sexually molested by a male, I was six years old.

The first time I was sexually molested by an adult male, I was nine years old.

The first time I was sexually molested by a “trusted” adult professional, I was twelve years old.

The first time I narrowly avoided a credible risk of rape, I was fourteen.

There is nothing in these experiences that is even a little bit unique. Girls born in a world of wealth and privilege have a far better chance of being protected from sexual predators, which explains why some of them still think we should all #BeKind, but I suspect many of them have similar stories to tell anyway, because predatory men can be found in every demographic group.  

I cannot count the number of times I have been touched inappropriately by males without my consent. I know how it feels to be preyed upon. I know that the same mammalian instincts that evolved over millions of years to help keep us alive can be triggered in social situations by the only type of predator a modern female is likely to encounter: a human male. If a man enters a locker room or other single-sex space where a female is undressed or otherwise vulnerable, her fight-or-flight response is a serious biological signal, not “bigotry.” It is not a “social construct” that any person should ignore but a warning that should be attended to.  Training women and children to ignore such instincts can put the most vulnerable at an increased risk of sexual abuse.

The idea that men who pretend to be women are somehow less of a threat to female safety is not supported by any evidence. Quite the contrary, in fact. Men who take wrong-sex hormones are just as violent as other men. It does not matter whether these men take hormones or have surgery – they continue to be a statistically significant danger to females and their “gender identity” is irrelevant in this context. Sex, not gender, is the reason men who claim to be trans are unwelcome in single-sex spaces for females and sex is a trait that can never, ever be changed.

If you are a trans-identifying male and I find you in a single-sex space for females, I will ask you politely to leave and never come back, because you are trespassing. You are also violating one of our most important social contracts, and may be committing the crimes of both voyeurism (if any females are undressing) and/or indecency (if you expose male genitals to females.) I will contact the police and insist that the law be upheld. If police express reluctance, I will point out that refusing to uphold the law would be (in Canada) unlawful sex discrimination because such failures obviously cause disproportionate harm to females.

As for the “legal fiction” of “sex change” I think we must recognize that “mistakes were made” that have led to serious injustices. People who believe there’s no harm in gender self-identification have not thought through the consequences. Everyone who campaigned for self-ID is complicit in the rapes perpetrated by the men who were then admitted to women’s prisons. It’s time to acknowledge that the only way to end the gatekeeping so many trans people find distasteful, in a manner consistent with the principles of justice and respect for the fundamental human rights of females, is to deny all males access to all single sex-spaces for females, with no exceptions. I’m done being nice about this. It is time to #BeKindToFemales.

Worse than Stupid

Gender ideology is objectively stupid because it is based on the lie that humans can change sex. No human ever swapped out a pelvis or changed the sex coded in their DNA because these things are physically impossible.

Feminism taught us “If you are a girl you don’t have to behave in a feminine way.”

Gender ideology is trying to teach us: “If you act in a feminine way you must be a girl, so let’s cut off your male genitals and put you on wrong sex hormones for the rest of your life, which will now be shorter as a result.” Gender ideology is wrong about that, while also revealing the regressive & authoritarian nature at its core.

Gender ideology is much worse than just stupid and wrong, though, because it is teaching little children:

“If you’re a girl and you act in a masculine way you should sterilize and mutilate your body to look like a boy,


“If you’re a boy and you act in a feminine way you should sterilize and mutilate your body to look like a girl.”

Gender ideology is not just stupid, wrong, regressive & authoritarian, but also full of hypocrisy because it simultaneously demands that men who claim to be trans, even those who keep their genitals intact and don’t take wrong-sex hormones, be given access to single-sex spaces and resources for women. The harm gender ideology is doing to children is what makes it objectively evil.

Teach children instead that they can act as feminine or masculine as they like in the sexed body they have, which is perfectly fine and does not need to be changed. This is what we mean when we say no child is born in the wrong body.

The War on Kellie-Jay Will Fail

Today, in Auckland New Zealand, a rabid mob of domestic terrorists physically attacked women who tried to meet in a public park to talk to each other about violations of their fundamental human rights. The mainstream media had been stirring up hate towards these women by publishing a steady stream of lies for days, branding the facilitator of this women’s rights campaign as a hateful “anti-trans” bigot with “repugnant” views.

There is so much wrong with what happened here. Starting with the way the mob was deliberately stirred up by the media and particular misogynist activists who were given a media platform and fawning sympathy. Interviewers who spoke to Kellie Jay Keen treated her disgracefully, asking incredibly rude questions and cutting her off so she couldn’t answer them. We see you.

Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull has been a lightning rod. Putting herself out there to take the bolts from her attackers while allowing ordinary women to speak about how pernicious gender ideology has caused serious harm to themselves and their families. Every time somebody threatens Posie Parker for speaking about the need to get men out of female spaces, more women who used to call themselves “trans allies” realize they’ve been played for suckers. What they thought were “trans rights” are really just shiny new privileges for narcissistic men who don’t give a toss about the harm they’ve done to vulnerable women. This day will go down in history as the day Kellie-Jay’s courage gave the world the ultimate “peak trans” moment it needed.

It is time for every person who believes in the value of truth to stand up and be counted. It is time for all of us to tell our elected representatives that they need write laws that are based on truth instead of lies. The foundational lie underpinning the gender ideology movement is “sex change.” No human has ever changed sex. That lie was first told decades ago by doctors who performed cosmetic genital surgery. It has propagated right into the legal system and allowed people to falsify government documents. This was a mistake – the fruit of a poisoned tree – and it is time to correct the error of “legal fiction.”

Every government in the world needs to recognize that humans cannot change sex and that the sex-based rights of women are the foundation of women’s fundamental human rights. Every government in the world should end the practice of falsifying government documents, because these lies have long outlived their usefulness and are now causing serious harms to women and girls.

Gender Critical ChatGPT

When I tried to get ChatGPT to replicate my own gender critical writing, I found the prose results uninspiring. I tried poetry next, I and ran up against the woke programing when I explored the topic of puberty blockers.

I rephrased the prompt as follows:

Can you explain why many nations now restrict the use of puberty blockers for children with gender dysphoria? Here’s the result:

“There are various reasons why some nations have chosen to restrict or ban the use of puberty blockers for children with gender dysphoria. Some of the reasons include:

  1. Lack of Long-term Research: Some experts believe that there is insufficient long-term research on the effects of puberty blockers on children. They argue that puberty blockers can cause irreversible changes to a child’s body, such as decreased bone density and stunted growth. They also point out that there is not enough data on the long-term mental health outcomes of children who undergo puberty blockers and later transition.
  2. Medical Risks: Puberty blockers can cause side effects, including headaches, hot flashes, and mood changes. While these side effects are generally considered minor, there is concern that they could pose greater risks for some children, such as those with underlying medical conditions.
  3. Ethical Concerns: Some critics argue that puberty blockers are being prescribed too readily, without proper evaluation and counseling. They worry that children are being pushed towards medical interventions before they have had a chance to fully explore their gender identity and understand the potential consequences.
  4. Legal Challenges: There have been legal challenges in some countries over whether children are capable of consenting to puberty blockers. Some argue that children may not fully understand the implications of the treatment, and that parents may be making decisions on their behalf that are not in their best interests.
  5. Cultural and Political Factors: Finally, there are cultural and political factors at play, with some groups opposing gender transition altogether and advocating for traditional gender roles. There is also concern that the increasing visibility of transgender individuals and the broader social acceptance of gender diversity may be fueling backlash against gender-affirming medical treatments.

“It is worth noting that while some nations have restricted or banned the use of puberty blockers for children with gender dysphoria, others continue to support their use as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Ultimately, the decision to use puberty blockers will depend on a range of individual factors, including the child’s age, medical history, and preferences, as well as the recommendations of their medical providers.”

OK, so that was an improvement over nothing. I revised the prompt as follows: Can you explain why many nations now restrict the use of puberty blockers for children with gender dysphoria and can you turn this explanation into a rhyming song or poem?

“Sure, I can give it a try!

The use of puberty blockers for kids
With gender dysphoria was once a bid
To help them delay the changes that come
With puberty, while they figured out some

Now, many nations are saying “hold on”
And restricting their use until dawn
Of further research and understanding
Of the effects they might be landing

Some worry they might affect bone growth
Or lead to long-term harm and loathe
To take such a risk with children’s health
And put them at risk of lower wealth

Others argue it’s a question of age
And that children are too young a stage
To make such a decision so big
Without further time to dance a jig

So now the debate is underway
With experts and activists each having their say
But one thing is clear, we need to be sure
Before using puberty blockers, to ensure

That we are not causing harm to those
Who are already dealing with so many woes
And that we have the evidence in hand
To know for sure where we should stand.

I hope that poem helps to explain
Why some nations have put a brake
On using puberty blockers in this way
Until they know what the experts say.”

It won’t win any awards, but an attempt was made. For the bot’s next assignment, I gave fairly detailed instructions to write a play. The poor bot seemed to get writer’s block and I wondered if there was a word-count limit, but on the third try it was finally able to complete the assignment. This is the result:

Title: The Locker Room Incident


  • JOHN (late 30s), a man pretending to be a woman
  • LUCY (early 30s), a woman using the locker room
  • EMMA (7), a little girl undressing in the locker room
  • POLICE OFFICER 1 (mid-30s), a male police officer
  • POLICE OFFICER 2 (early 30s), a female police officer

Setting: A women’s locker room at a public swimming pool. There are benches and lockers along the walls, and a door leading to the pool area.

(Scene opens with LUCY undressing and EMMA sitting on a bench, putting on her swimsuit. JOHN enters the locker room, wearing a wig and a dress.)

JOHN: (in a high-pitched voice) Hi, ladies! Mind if I change here?

LUCY: (looks at JOHN and feels uncomfortable) Excuse me, sir. This is a women’s locker room.

JOHN: (in a feminine voice) Oh, I’m sorry. I’m a trans woman.

EMMA: (looks up and sees JOHN) Mommy, who is that man?

LUCY: (to EMMA) It’s okay, sweetie. (to JOHN) Please leave. You’re making us uncomfortable.

JOHN: (starts undressing and revealing male genitals) I have a right to be here. I’m a trans woman.

LUCY: (firmly) You need to leave now or I’ll call the police. This is a violation of our privacy.

JOHN: (getting angry) You’re a bigot! You’re discriminating against me!

(LUCY takes out her phone and starts dialing the police. POLICE OFFICER 1 and POLICE OFFICER 2 enter the locker room.)

POLICE OFFICER 1: What’s going on here?

LUCY: This man is pretending to be a woman and exposing himself to us.

JOHN: I’m a trans woman, and they’re discriminating against me!

POLICE OFFICER 2: Sir, we need you to step outside with us.

JOHN: (resisting) No, I have a right to be here. I’m a woman!

LUCY: (to the police officers) He’s committing voyeurism and indecent exposure. You have to arrest him.

POLICE OFFICER 1: (hesitant) We have to be careful with these situations. He claims to be a trans woman.

LUCY: (firmly) The law still applies. Allowing men into women’s change rooms violates Section 15 of the Charter because the disproportionate harms to women and girls are sex discrimination.

POLICE OFFICER 2: (to JOHN) Sir, we have to take you in for questioning.

JOHN: (angrily) You can’t do this! You’re all bigots!

(The police officers handcuff JOHN and lead him away. The women and girls in the locker room cheer as he leaves.)

LUCY: (to EMMA) It’s okay, sweetie. Let’s get ready for our swim.

(They continue getting dressed as the scene fades to black.)


ChatGPT won’t be winning any Tony awards, but if prompted properly it can produce gender critical content. It may be fun to play with.

The Trans Population Bomb

As more communities and institutions are infiltrated and undermined by gender ideology, the negative consequences can expect to pile up, like buckets of healthy breast tissue in the back rooms of medical clinics offering “affirmative care” to children who are hopelessly confused about gender by teachers who have told them boys can become girls and vice versa. How many young girls will be victimized by sexual predators before we slam the brakes on this crazy train?

The Population Bomb was an alarmist book published in 1968 which incorrectly predicted widespread famine in the 1970s based on the ballooning global population. In recent years there has been an explosion in the numbers of people who claim to be “transgender.” This won’t lead to widespread famine, but the consequences will be many and varied. We would be wise to think about the impacts these will have and make some effort to mitigate the harms.

The following graph derived from recent UK data is very telling. We know women are a very small minority of the UK prison population. Approximately 99% of sex offenders are men. When the most recent census was taken in the UK they collected data on how many people identify as trans. This was combined with data from the prisons to show that, apparently, men who pretend to be women are far more likely to be incarcerated as sex offenders than other males.

Is this a fair conclusion to draw though? To be fair, we must consider the possibility that male criminals are faking being trans just so they can have an easier time in prison. Some sex offenders are faking being trans because they are highly motivated to offend and they want access to a large pool of vulnerable victims. It is possible that men who truly want to be women are also more likely to be sexual predators, but we cannot make definitive statements about how many fall into that category because of the confounding variables here. There is no way to differentiate between these various demographics of men. This is true not just in prisons but in every single-sex space for females.

Not all sex offenders are incarcerated. Given how hard it is to obtain convictions for sexual offenses, consider the likelihood that the total number of male sex offenders may be larger than the total number of males who “identify as women.” If a man invades a female change room, the women and girls inside are likely to have a stress response because their subconscious minds already know this person is approximately 100 times more likely to be a sex offender than any woman in the space and also more likely to be a sexual predator than a man who uses the proper facilities. It does not matter if the trespasser had surgery or takes hormones.

No male should ever be tolerated in a “single-sex” space for females. It’s right there in the name. The minute a person born male enters a female space it is magically transformed into a “mixed-sex” space and is no longer fit for purpose. There is such a thing as too much tolerance and sex is where we must draw the line in order to avoid an easy to predict increase in sexual offenses against women and girls. This is borne out in another UK chart on unisex toilets.

The helpful charts above could not be reproduced with data from Canada because all the male sex offenders pretending to be women would be counted as women by law enforcement. The decision made by Stats Canada in 2019 to track crime by whatever gender a perpetrator claims to be is already causing harm. Not only will it lead to the false claim that “more women are being jailed as sex offenders” it also hides the crimes that male sex offenders are committing in women’s prisons against vulnerable female inmates who cannot “identify” their way to safety. How can we solve this problem when the government is using flawed statistics to cover up what is really going on? Sound statistics are crucial as the foundation for public policy.

The number of men pretending to be women in prison is increasing and we must expect this trend to continue as more men realize they can make a “strategic” transition while incarcerated without ever taking hormones or having surgery, and then “detransition” once they are released. Women have been gaslit by lying men who kept telling us “that never happens” while they unilaterally shredded the social contract and women’s fundamental rights. What is truly alarming about this trend is the ratio of men to women in prison. Incarcerated women are outnumbered by men by such a huge amount that it is not inconceivable that one day women could become a minority in women’s prisons. Before we get there, male rapists will be able to form gangs within the women’s prison system, and work as a team to target their victims. It’s only a matter of time before gang rape becomes a serious risk.

We need to stop and think about why women’s prisons exist in the first place. Men were raping women. Now they are doing so again because the government lets them, in violation of local and international human rights laws. The politicians who allowed this want us so busy trying to re-establish fundamental human rights for women that we’ll be too busy to notice the fact that they committed this abomination without public consultation: without the consent of the governed. They don’t want us to move on to solve the core problem: most nations that call themselves “democracies” aren’t. This is why the media works so hard to polarize the population in so many ways. Divide & Rule tactics have always proved very effective. Single issue solidarity is the solution.

Most women in Canada have no understanding that our fundamental right to privacy dignity and safety has already been stripped away from us, in violation of the Charter. The state-sponsored media is complicit in covering up sex crimes the government has facilitated and should be held responsible for. Consider writing to your MP and demanding that Stats Canada collect crime statistics based on biological sex as well as gender so legislators will have a sufficient data to make the sensible public policy decisions we need to end this madness before more women are raped.

Argument Lego

When I’m responding to trans nonsense on social media often use these handy building blocks to assemble my arguments.

Feel free to appropriate them for your own use. Some of these were created by others, but I can’t tell who unless they watermarked them. I edit this to add new ones, usually at the top.

Canada Violates the Charter & Women

I’m in a public washroom stall and I hear a man’s voice in the room. My fight-or-flight response is triggered, which causes a cascade of physiological reactions which, if repeated frequently over time, could seriously damage my health. This reaction is a mammalian instinct that evolved over millions of years. It is not a “social construct.” You cannot train people to *not* have a fight-or-flight response to a potential predator. It is worth noting that the only predator a human female is likely to encounter in the modern world is a human male. Of course not all men are predators, but almost all predators are men. Predators, by definition, have multiple victims, which is why all women know how it feels to be prey. This is why single-sex spaces for females exist.

If I’m undressing in a female locker room and a man walks in and disrobes, he is committing two crimes: voyeurism and indecency. I don’t care if he claims to be trans. I don’t care if he takes hormones. I don’t care if his body has been surgically altered. He is not female and he is therefore not welcome, but he isn’t considered a danger because of his gender identity. He represents a danger to women and girls because he is male. Sometimes women need to partially disrobe in a public washroom due to menstrual accidents. This is humiliating enough without men violating our space. No one observed to be male at birth has ever changed his sex from male to female and that is why no male should ever set foot in a single-sex female space. Nobody can give a male permission to use a communal female space because each woman’s consent is her own. Not one of the eight billion people on this planet can give *my* consent to any man.

I have the right, protected by Section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, to freedom of thought and belief. I reserve the right to use sex-based pronouns because they are honest and I believe honesty is a virtue. I reject trans activist assertions that their “gender identity” should supersede their biological sex. About 99% of sexual predators are male and there is no evidence males who take cross-sex hormones become less violent than other men. Males are statistically significantly bigger, stronger, faster and more violent than females, with greater lung capacity and bone density. These differences mean that, while men have little to fear from females who pretend to be men, female fear of male violence is perfectly rational.

I have been unable to find any evidence to support the claim that “trans women” risk assault if they use men’s washrooms. On the contrary, it appears that men’s washrooms are safer for all people who identify as trans. I think most people already accept that some men present as very feminine, which may be why we don’t see reports of transitioning males being attacked in men’s washrooms.

In 2016, the trans lobby, having failed twice before, launched another assault on women’s rights in Canada. They had learned from previous failures and shifted their strategy. They had infiltrated the agenda-setting media and it was somehow no longer acceptable to discuss women’s legitimate safety concerns – everything that didn’t serve them was somehow transphobia. Their dogmatic mantra – you know the one, their Big Lie – was chanted ad nauseam, until a sufficient mass of people seemed blind to its absurdity, or so media propaganda told us. “Trans women,” meanwhile, continue to be men.

During the Senate hearings on Bill C-16, it seems nobody heard feminists articulating the threat the bill posed to women and girls, because the media kept the focus on Jordan Peterson‘s opposition to compelled speech. Peterson was right about pronouns, but in hindsight I would also say the trans lobby capitalized on the noisy pronoun battle to distract us from the serious safeguarding issues that should have torpedoed that bill or amended it to confirm the sex-based rights of women. This deliberate, ongoing attack on women’s rights (and children’s bodies) also serves to distract us from the fact that “democracy” is really just an illusion, but that’s a blog post for another day.

Most Canadians don’t even realize that a man who wants his driver’s license and birth certificate falsified to say he’s female is not required to have undergone surgery. These changes have been implemented across Canada, but not always as a result of legislation. In Ontario it was a decision made by the Human Rights Tribunal. Most women don’t even realize how this stripped us of our fundamental rights without public consultation. Most Canadians also don’t realize that violent men with intact male genitals, including sex offenders, have been transferred into women’s prisons by claiming to be trans.

Our federal Department of Justice defines woman as “all people who identify as women, whether they are cisgender or transgender women.” This insult and erasure cannot stand. Sex is encoded in DNA in every cell nucleus in the body, so no amount of hormones or surgery can change it. This is why, in my opinion, nobody should ever be allowed to falsify data on any government document. The once-compelling arguments that supported the abomination known as the “legal fiction” no longer hold water because society has changed dramatically.

Back in 1988, one of the reasons Canada’s abortion law was struck down by the Supreme Court, was that sex discrimination is prohibited by Section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Men did not suffer the denial of their bodily integrity, so it was unfair to put that burden only on women. Erasing the boundaries of women as a distinct sex class causes disproportionate harm to women and girls not just by increasing the risk of sexual assault but also by robbing us of opportunities in sports, education, and employment. Men are not similarly affected. Prison authorities who allow males to be placed in women’s prisons, are also violating not just Section 15, but also international law and Section 12 of the Charter which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. It is time for the media to stop obscuring the truth about how gender ideology harms women and girls and violates our rights.

Although the charter rights of Canadian women have been violated, there is a remedy. Section 52 of the Constitution Act, says a law that is inconsistent with the Charter, to the extent of the inconsistency, is of no force or effect. Thus adding “gender identity” to the prohibited grounds in the Human Rights Act does not allow a male to use a female single-sex space, service or accommodation because that would be sex discrimination and would therefore violate the Charter. Canadian women in correctional facilities could commence a class action lawsuit on this basis to remove trans-identifying men from women’s institutions, but they should not have to. Women deserve single-sex spaces where we can be free from harassment and male violence. We will not be bullied into submission. Come hell or high water, we can and will take back our stolen sex-based rights.


That was heavy. Bring on the memes!

Sex Change was Always a Lie

I’ll begin with the premise that words have meanings and that those meanings matter. What we used to call a “sex change operation” is now called “gender reassignment surgery.” This small change in language is bad news for trans activists because itchange represents an admission that the concept of “sex change” was always a lie. No human, in the history of the world, has ever changed their sex.

Even if it became possible to alter the DNA that resides in every cell nucleus in the body, you can’t reverse the many physiological changes of male puberty. Surgically removing genitals or breasts cannot change a person’s sex, nor can years of ingesting cross-sex hormones. While scientists did not fully understand how DNA works when the first “sex change” operations were conducted, the “Y” chromosome, and the role it played in sex determination, had already been discovered in 1905 by Nettie Stevens.

When the first “sex-change” operations were performed, those who believed that their “sex” had been “changed” by surgery and hormones were deceived. It was a mistake to allow them to falsify the sex or “gender”  recorded on government documents. This was a serious mistake and it needs to be corrected. Obviously, this is anathema to trans activists and will cause some of them psychological distress. It hurts to have the truth revealed when you’ve been living a lie. This problem has flown under the radar for decades because of the traditional social stigma and the very low numbers of “trans” people.

Today we understand that there is a significant difference between sex and gender, but this difference is a recent invention. “Gender” as a field on government documents was originally just a euphemism that referred specifically to what we now understand to be biological sex. We used to say “gender” instead of “sex” because people were squeamish about sex. When these documents were first designed, “sex” belonged exclusively behind the closed doors of married couples’ bedrooms and the subject was avoided in polite society.

When existing government documents were created, including forms to record statistics, sex and gender were interchangeable terms but that is no longer the case. With 20/20 hindsight we can see that instead of changing the sex/gender marker on documents for people who had a “sex change operation” we could have added a new field so sex and gender could be recorded separately. Trans activists don’t want this, obviously, but we do need to discuss the reality that society has made a serious mistake and needs to correct it. The #NoDebate hashtag was supposed to stop us from ever having this conversation.

Now that we understand humans cannot change sex, because we cannot alter our DNA, trans activists want us all to pretend that gender is all that matters, as if gender was never interchangeable with sex. Today, by making a clear distinction between sex and gender, trans activists have pulled off a huge “bait & switch” with catastrophic consequences for women and girls. Sex, however, does matter in ways that gender never will. Sex, not gender, not “gender identity” is the reason people who were born male are unwelcome in female single-sex spaces. 

It is an indisputable fact that men, as a group, are statistically significantly bigger, stronger and more violent than women and much more likely to be sexual predators. This is why females are entitled to spaces where males are excluded. The sex differences that make female spaces so necessary are not mitigated by surgery or cross-sex hormones. Maleness is forever, and there is nothing a trans-identifying male can do about that.

If a man jumps through all the hoops, takes the hormones, has bottom surgery, shaves down his Adam’s apple, gets facial feminization surgery, grows his hair, wears makeup, swaps his wardrobe and performs femininity well, he may “pass” as female, but he is still living a lie. He is still violating the boundaries of women every time he enters a female space, and not getting caught because he’s doing this by stealth does not make it okay. You know who you are.

If I enter a female space to undress I consent to be seen by other females and I don’t mind this because women, as a group, are not bigger, stronger, more violent or likely to be sexual predators. I do not consent to be seen by a male in a female space, not even if he is gay with gender dysphoria instead of being a heterosexual with autogynephilia. My consent is my own and no person anywhere has permission to give MY consent to any male person,whether he “passes” as female or not. Allowing trans-identifying males to use female single-sex spaces, even public toilets, is a violation of the sex-based boundaries and consent of every female who *could* walk into that space and disrobe, even if they don’t.

There is a social contract being violated here, and this needs to stop. There is a public perception that most men who claim to be trans are gay men with genuine dysphoria, which is a mental illness that tells them they were “born in the wrong body” but that perception is flawed. Increasing numbers of heterosexual men with a sexual fetish called autogynephilia are now claiming to be “trans women” and expecting women to validate them by participating in their delusions.

The #MeToo movement made it clear that our sexual consent is our own and nobody has the right to take that from us. Men who commit indecent exposure are punished for it because we recognize that as a violation, even if there is no physical contact, as is also the case with voyeurism. When a male enters a space where women may be undressed in full view of other women, he is committing the crime of voyeurism. If a trans-identifying male with male genitals undresses in a female space, he is committing the additional crime of indecent exposure and should be prosecuted for it.

When Canada debated Bill C-16 in 2016, why was there no discussion of the impact it would have on the criminal code with respect to voyeurism and indecent exposure? These laws are still on the books. A person of the male sex cannot be allowed to use a female single-sex space no matter what gender he claims to be. Crime statistics should record both sex and gender, because failing to do so will make it appear as if females are more violent than we really are. The very statistics that support single-sex spaces for females have now been undermined by the lie that men can change their sex.

I recently asked a Toronto police officer if an arrest would be made if a trans-identifying male exposed his male genitals in a female space. He said it would depend on how that person identified. This response is unacceptable. A trans-identifying male should be arrested and charged with voyeurism for entering any female space, even if he’s had bottom surgery. I don’t care if you think I’m unkind. Expecting females to accommodate men’s “feelings” at the expense of our privacy, dignity and physical safety is extremely unkind to women and girls.

I’m sick of being told I need to accommodate men who are living a lie. These men need psychological treatment for their alethophobia – their fear of or aversion to the truth. The truth is that no man has ever changed his sex to female. The standard of care for all phobias is exposure therapy. For a deeply indoctrinated trans person, the truths in this article will be hard pills to swallow. One of the hardest truths for trans people to accept is that by demanding privileges that destroyed the fundamental sex-based rights of women and girls, trans activists have shot themselves in the foot by exposing the lie that is at the very foundation of their movement and they have only themselves to blame.

Correcting the errors our society made that were based on the lie that people could change their sex will seem regressive to trans people. I understand their perspective, but continuing to tear down the sex-based rights of woman and girls so men can continue to live a lie is unacceptable. Maybe this article is too much truth all at once for a deeply indoctrinated trans person, but I will keep speaking the truth until they get used to it. For them, re-reading this article may have therapeutic value.

No Woman is Transphobic

Words have meanings and meanings matter.

“Phobia” means an irrational fear.

Female fear of male violence is perfectly rational because it is justified both by crime statistics and the lived experience of millions of women the world over since the dawn of humanity.

Males are statistically significantly bigger, stronger and more violent than females.

When a male “transitions” he does NOT become smaller, weaker or less prone to violence.

Women are female, but “trans women” are male.

It is not irrational for women to be fearful when a trans-identifying male invades a female space without consent.

No woman can consent to males entering female single-sex spaces that other women use, for the same reason that nobody can violate another person’s sexual consent. Voyeurism is a crime. The male gaze has no place in a female space.

Males are unwelcome in female single-sex spaces because of their sex, not their gender identity, and humans cannot change their sex. “Sex change” was always a lie.

Woman have every right to ask trans-identifying males to #GetOut and #StayOut of female spaces.

Some trans activists claim “phobia” also refers to an “aversion” but one must consider the source of such “aversion.” As Margaret Attwood astutely observed: Men are afraid women will laugh at them. Women are afraid men will kill them.

Characterizing female instincts for self-preservation as “transphobia” or bigotry is dishonest and despicable.
