This transphobic disinformation has been floating around for many years now and has been debunked repeatedly. Despite this it persists as a quasi-religious belief amongst transphobes such as JK Rowling who repeated the claim on Twitter.
Marjorie Taylor Green has been widely mocked after blaming the US’s current tampon shortage on trans people.
Before Maya Forstater's case a lot of things were up in the air and every single lawyer, legal expert and asshole with a website like myself was just guessing about how things would work or play out. That's sort of what law is in general. But now we actually have some definition on the playing field, we're starting to see the rules take shape and even despite a win; I don't think the gender criticals will be happy with the results once they set in.
According to Stella Creasy and the GRA; you don't need to get surgery in order to have your legal sex changed in the UK. This is all factually true and the result of the law working that way means that yes; some women have penises. You can disagree, you can say you think the law is bad, you can turn yourselves red with rage about it. But nonetheless, as it stands, the law in the UK states that some women have penises - and in a court of law you would not be able to simply ignore that.
If they believe it hard enough, perhaps they can will it into existence but I doubt it. Trans people just don't want to have sex with rancid nasty bigots. We want to have sex with people who love us and respect us, like anyone else.
The biggest story that got most people talking in Trans Land this week featured JK Rowling and absolutely no trans people, again.
Helen Joyce's comments on the show recently caused a massive controversy as she argued to "reduce" the population of people she found to be "damaged" and "difficulties for a sane world". This tirade included all transgender people, whether they were "happily transitioned" and even those who had detransitioned.
Taking to Twitter JK Rowling wrote: "I'm afraid I can't give a shout out to everyone promising to murder me - there are so many of you, and I'm a busy woman - but this one deserves a mention for the nineties rave vibe, @TrustFundOzu". I for one just wish she would post one that is a legitimate threat of violence and not like... some random child posting a bugs bunny meme.
Get The L Out, who are widely described as anti-trans, have once again attempted to lead the parade during Pride while holding signs supporting trans exclusion. They were asked to leave and have obviously not taken it well.
Twitch streamer Clara Sorrenti, also known as Keffals, has been under siege from users of a cyberstalking website after she had armed police raid her home due to a fraudulent email. Sorrenti began #DropKiwiFarms to get CloudFlare to stop hosting the site.
