Yesterday there was a twitter interaction between known harrasser, but perpetual “victim” Dana Lane Taylor and a gender critical trans woman who goes under the handle @gendercoping . Dana was threatening to expose Coping’s details in yet another DOX like action. I believe Dana then tweeted @swirlradio (radio host, Michelle Meow) ,an LGBT Radio station into the conversation, somehow managing to to pull off friendly banter and cyber high fives from the Station in midst of his harassing another trans woman, simply because they have started to go down a gender critical path, and will call out abusive postings against females, as any decent person should. When pointed out to the radio station they insisted they didn’t take sides and were just concerned about everyone’s safety. This is a sentiment I can get behind. I tweeted out some of what Dana was sending me to convey how creepy and stalker like this person was being. They extended an offer to have a platform (explicitly saying that it is to be a platform and not a debate/argument.) and speak out about the schism that’s going on in the community, and what exactly is taking place in this dialogue at large, and what my experience has been thus far as a gay man speaking out about the homophobia and misogyny that is seemingly inherit in the trans movement. I’m not sure if Coping decided to go ahead and speak out on it as well, but likely not due to the camaraderie that Dana and Swirl were sharing. It’s understandable to be hesitant and upset with this.
Later that day, after we all stopped Paying attention, Dana then went on a twitter vomiting binge of harassing Lesbian Feminist activist Cathy Brennan, whom he has been harassing for sometime.
Obviously the above is blatant harassment. It’s astonishing that LGBT. and even mainstream feminist media (Bitch among others.) tolerates this to the point of being buddy buddy with aggressors such as Dana Lane Taylor. It’s hard to buy that Swirl didn’t know what was taking place, but if this is indeed an offer to not argue but to just relay, it’s one I’m content in accepting. We are living in an age of blacklisting and de-platforming anyone with a dissenting opinion on trans politics, or anyone with the audacity to point out the behavior of some of their more prominent activist, all of which I intend on doing here. I also intend on addressing the Fallon Fox situation and speak about the petition, and the 2 petitions that have been started by trans activist against me for starting that petition. So, the interview is set up for 4 PM on Wednesday, however I don’t know when it will air, but I will update. I look forward to what will hopefully be a respectful dialogue, and an opportunity to address the reality of the situation.
**update: I understand I’m a male person having a conversation about some of my experiences in this (very old) conversation about Trans women harassing or otherwise attempting to silence gender critical thought, waters mostly only threaded by females. I do actually think gay men have a right (I’ve read otherwise, I disagree.) to speak out about the homophobia in the trans community, and I am going on an LGBT show, The G is a part of that. I am not a radical feminist, I don’t represent radical feminism, thus while I intend on mentioning and highlighting that this happens all the time to female people who object to the current narrative on gender , I’m not speaking for, or on the behalf of radical feminist or female ppl here. I’m speaking as a gender critical gay male (This is what male gay liberationist were after all.)- and I have hopes of seeing more gay men sway into this line of thought, because right now, lets face it, gay men are serving as a Trojan horse for Trans politics and advancement.
For what it’s worth I did ask a few women if they would be willing to contact the station and also share their experiences. I realize I’m not going to please everyone in everything that I do.
If you want to be interviewed by this station- it’s easy enough. Give them your story, communicate with them. http://www.swirlcast.com. I don’t think I’m taking anyone’s mic in doing this. Everyone needs to speak out. Email the station. **
** IF you haven’t signed and shared the petition yet, please do so! It’s up to almost 500 signatures and is doing better than expected. We need to at least let the MMA know that a substantial amount of people know that letting male born people compete against females in violent contact sports is wrong.**
