Have Cocks and Have Nots

This weekend played host to an almighty media bitch fight turned left-wing civil war between furious feminists and “bed-wetting” transsexuals. It all kicked off when Guardian and New Statesman columnist and heroine of the fairer sex Suzanne Moore stomped off Twitter after opining  in the Staggers last week: “[Women] are angry with ourselves for not being happier, not being loved properly and not having the ideal body shape – that of a Brazilian transsexual. Moore deactivated her account, not before going out in a truly spectacular blaze of glory, telling her followers: “People can just f*** off really. Cut their d***s off and be more feminist than me. Good for them”. Quite.

julieStep forward Julie Burchill, Moore’s feminist friend and fellow Guardianista. Taking up arms in defence of her under fire colleague in her Observer column, Burchill went tonto. Suggesting that “a gaggle of transsexuals telling Suzanne Moore how to write looks a lot like how I’d imagine the Black and White Minstrels telling Usain Bolt how to run would look”, Burchill proceeded to launch a stinging attack against the ‘trans lobby’, denouncing them as “screaming mimis”, “Shims, shemales, whatever you’re calling yourselves these days”, and “bed-wetting transsexuals” who “have your c**k cut off and then plead special privileges as women”. Cue lefty rage.

Basking in the illiberal glow of the post-Leveson world, shouty crackers LibDem minister Lynne Featherstone went all Tom Watson and demanded Burchill be sacked:

While Alan Rusbridger conveniently forgot that he is editor-in-chief of Guardian News Media as he went into full defensive mode:

As the dust settled this morning lefty commentators were still entrenched behind their barricades desperately trying to out-feminist each other. Man-bags at dawn…

UPDATE: The Guardian/Observer combine started Friday claiming it “OWNED” the weekend, by Monday it had disowned the Burchill article, self-censoring and removing it.

 The Observer is a paper which prides itself on ventilating difficult debates and airing challenging views. On this occasion we got it wrong and in light of the hurt and offence caused I apologise and have made the decision to withdraw the piece.

A lack of editorial balls…

      Also Dave’s Blue Labour continuity rent-seeker party.

      from Private Eye 1331 published 11th January 2013 – Page 9 – Keeping The Lights On

      Francis Maude, Minister for the Cabinet Office, slipped out an announcement just before Christmas unveiling a plan to fund uneconomic windfarms by forcing the Government Procurement Service to buy electricity from them at above market rates.

      The PE piece continues for a further 4 paragraphs, one of which mentions the GPS being instructed by Ministers to sign up to 15 year contracts and that the policy means “[the GPS] will now be forced to underwrite projects so uneconomic they cannot attract finance even with the lavish level of subsidy already available”

      It should show both Moore and Burchill how wrong they’ve been over the years about left-wing liberalism and that when you get right down to it, Greer may have been correct.

      A bunch of men simply can’t get over the fact that a couple of women – and these are far from having any power, they just write columns – won’t think or write what they’ve been told. How dare they! The screams from both the men and the sistas yelling to burn the witch, withdraw her column, sack her, report her to the police for hate speech – tell me all I really need to know about the left.

    What is so amusing is not this left on left bashing it’s Featherstone immediately not backing freedom of speech. Just because she doesn’t like this attack on so called transgender people she thinks no one can utter a contrary opinion. That’s always been a problem with the left. They deny free speech. As for these transgender people, they can never be what they want with fancy surgery and hormone treatment. If they are XY or XX that’s what they’ll stay. Such a load of old bollocks, or should that be no bollocks? I’m beyond caring.

    This is a bloody joke, Transexual(TS) which is the term used for those who undergo SRS surgery do not have an easy life. I should now, I am one, well not a TS in that i have had surgery, but in time i do plan it. All those women who think we plead special privalages do not understand what our life is like, living in the wrong body, suffering from name calling and laughing behind our backs. To be true to who we are on the inside is not an easy path to go down. We have to pay for facial hair removal, which most genetic women do not. Shemales, those who keep their cocks but have surgery on their breasts,give us a bad name to most men as a lot just go into the porn industry and then all you see are they either fucking or being fucked.

    Our cause is not helped by popular TV programs having a genetic woman playing the role of a TS. Why use a Genetic woman to play a part, I am sorry but research cannot inform people of all the problems we have growing up, having to put concealer and foundation on everyday just to pass. I hate having to wear those when i woman can go out without having to worry and not be laughed at.

    People should grow up and treat everyone as valued individuals not just chuck people in to one or another box. I am happy as hell to see fellow sisters actually showing they can be as beautiful as genetic models.

      It is my opinion, and I appreciate in advance that you probably will not agree, that this is an example of where “progress” has set humanity back.

      Now that sexuality can, superficially, become a medical option, the numbers of people who pursue it purely for financial gain (particularly in the far east) eclipses those who have a genuine problem.

      I think the problems now created are greater than the problems that were there before to be solved. As I say, that is my view.
