Original Stonewall Participant and Longtime Gay Activist Fred Sargeant Attacked By Trans Activist @ Burlington Pride

Original Stonewall Participant and Longtime Gay Activist Fred Sargeant Attacked By Gender Identity/Trans Activist @ Burlington Pride

Fred Sargent is an original. He is one of NYC’s original gay activist. He alongside with boyfriend Craig Rodwell and others started NYC PRIDE (Christopher Street Liberation Day Protest) A member of GLF, GAA and almost any other homophile organization Sargent participated in the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City (verified unlike some others) And to this day he continues to fight. Just now a bit differently.

Sargeant, 74, was attacked after holding a sign with a red line through the phrases “Woman Face” and “Black Face” and “Gay Not Queer” at the 39th Burlington Pride Parade in Vermont.

Yes. Vermont.

Sargeant is against the recent “gender” ideology movement’ which he says is “homophobic and exclusive.” and some say are out of control. Especially the UK version of the Human Rights Campaign called “Stonewall”

Out of control perhaps by assaulting a 74 year old man at PRIDE?

Describing the incident on his Facebook account, Sargeant said, “Mugged at Burlington Pride. So, I went to Pride to protest their misogyny, homophobia, exclusionary policies and divisiveness. I was met by screaming, multiple assaults, ageist comments, shoving, slaps to the back of my head, pouring coffee on me and repeated attempts to steal my signs Being unsuccessful in their attempts to disrupt my protest and drive me away, the mob pushed me to the ground as the parade ended, further injuring me.” 

Via Gaynrd.com: This isn’t the first time that lesbians and gays have faced vitriol from trans activists at Pride. Lesbians have been intimidated, shouted at, surrounded and unceremoniously thrown out of Pride events in London and Cardiff. In Paris, smoke flares were thrown at lesbians who insisted that the definition of lesbian doesn’t include people with male bodies. Sargeant is also a target because he is able to call out trans activists for their attempts to rewrite gay history. It is now fashionable to erase boring old gays and foreground trans activists instead. For instance, it is now claimed that the pivotal role at the Stonewall riots was played not by gay people, but by ‘trans’ activist Marsha P Johnson. This is despite Johnson being on the record admitting that he was actually a drag queen and not trans, and that other than being a part of the hundreds and hundreds of rioters that night he played no significant part in the events.  But it is worthy in itself that Johnson was there and in the thick of it with 100’s of others

But. Marsha Johnson (or Syliva Rivera) did not start or lead the Stonewall Riots. AND THAT IS A FACT,

Differing opinions and ideologies should not be met with violence within our community. Go fight a Republican. Someone who REALY hurts you. But the fact that they attacked a 74 year old man gay man, be he a longtime gay activist or not is vile and disgusting. It also proves many of the negative things said about the trans movement right now.

Oh. And don’t forget about Bette!

Capital One Hacker Suspect is Trans Woman with Mental Problems

Capital One Hacker Suspect Arraigned, Trans Woman Held In Largest U.S. Data Breech

The recent hacking into the Capital One database which is the largest breach in US history was allegedly done by a 33-year-old trans woman and software engineer named Paige A. Thompson. Thompson also threatened to “shoot up” a California social media company and was living in a house-turned-arsenal with a convicted felon who had once been arrested for being part of a “contract murder plot,” federal court papers in Seattle revealed.

Thompson was arrested Monday for allegedly hacking into a server rented by Capital One and obtaining the data of more than 100 million people.

It was not clear if any of the information Thompson allegedly snatched was passed to third-parties. She was charged with one count of computer fraud and abuse and faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Quan was arrested the same day after police raided his “modest” home and found in his bedroom “what can fairly be described as an arsenal of weapons, ammunition, and explosive material,” the court papers state.

Among other things, police found “several assault rifles, a sniper rifle, and hand guns,” the papers state. “Some of the guns were loaded, including one with a high capacity magazine. Further, some of the guns appears to be illegal firearms.”

On the social media site, Slack, a user by the name “Erratic,” and who was allegedly Thompson, in June boasted about having files taken from Capital One, according to the criminal complaint against her.

In a separate Twitter message obtained by the FBI, Thompson also described the Capital One hack as a suicide mission.

“I’ve basically strapped myself with a bomb vest,” Thompson wrote on June 18, according to court documents. “F–king dropping capitol ones dox and admitting it.”

Thompson also regularly shared details of her life on other social media sites as well, from information about her cat, Millie, to talking about her desire to kill herself. In one tweet claimed she was planning to travel to Denmark in October for legally assisted suicide.

It was a veterinarian letter Thompson posted on July 19 with her home address that ultimately led FBI agents to her door.

Transgender QPOC Arrested In Hate Crime Spree in Bronx

Police on Saturday arrested a transgender woman attacked a white couple in the Bronx and may be behind a series of hate crime attacks in upper Manhattan.

transgender woman became furious after accidentally being misgendered and being called "sir" instead of "ma'am" at a GameStop in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Transgender Woman Loses It After Being Accidentally Misgendered at GameStop – Video

transgender woman became furious after accidentally being misgendered and being called “sir” instead of “ma’am” at a GameStop in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

A video of the incident shows the woman angrily demanding their “fucking money back” from a male employee who accidentally used the word “sir”.

To make matters worse a nearby customer with her young son enraged the woman further by misgendering her again saying: “Excuse me sir, there is a young man in here you need to watch your mouth.”

And that’s when all hell broke loose.

“Excuse me, it is ma’am, it is ma’am! You need to settle down and mind your business, ok?! The trans woman screamed back at the customer.

The sales clerk tried and calm the situation down but was then yelled at again.

She told him: “Motherfucker, take it outside if you want to call me sir again. I will show you a fucking sir.”

The customer then stormed out, kicking over a huge pile of equipment with a loud crash.

But apparently changing her mind, the shopper charged back again to demand the corporate headquarters phone number.

In a video, published on Friday, she told him: “I am going to tell them how I have been misgendered several times in this store.

As she irate woman finally left the store she told the clerk that she would inform the “entire LGBT community”.

Lesbian Tennis Legend Martina Navratilova: ‘Having a penis and competing as a woman is not fair’

Lesbian Tennis Legend Martina Navratilova: ‘Having a penis and competing as a woman is not fair’

Tennis legend Martina Navratilova has incurred the wrath of transgender activists and their supporters after posting on Twitter that she believes that female trans athletes should not be allowed to compete against female born athletes because it is not “fair”

The 17-time Grand Slam champion from the Czech Republic, Navratilova, was responding to a question from one of her followers, said: “Clearly that can’t be right. You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women. There must be some standards, and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.” She added: “For me it’s all about fairness. Which means taking every case individually… there is no cookie cutter way of doing things.”

The tweet  triggered an uproar on social media with the trans community branding her comments as “bullying” and “discriminatory.”

Dr Rachel McKinnon, who controversially won a women’s event at the UCI Masters track world championships and was born a male before becoming a female in her 20’s and identifies as a lesbian, was one of many who demanded Navratilova apologize.

“Genitals do not play sports. What part of a penis is related to tennis? How does that ‘level’ any playing field?” McKinnon posted “You realize I’m a world champion trans woman athlete?”

Martina did apologize, and deleted the original tweet saying, ‘it seems to be my decades of speaking out against unfairness and inequality just don’t count with you at all’, with McKinnon agreeing, saying, that Martina’s record of fighting for LGBT equality, ‘doesn’t change the fact that you did something very wrong today. Past good deeds don’t give someone a pass.’

Some social media users however expressed support for Navratilova suggesting she was the one who was “bullied” by trans-activists to deliver an apology after being “intimidated from telling the truth.”

Republican's 2020 Anti-LGBT Platform Pushed by the Family Research Council and Eagle Forum

FRC’s Tony Perkins Jumps For Joy Over Donald Trump’s Latest Anti-Trans Move

Via press release from Family Research Council hate group leader Tony Perkins:

This isn’t exactly the age of responsible journalism — so this weekend’s New York Times probably doesn’t surprise anyone. But for every American sick of fake news (and according to polls, that’s everyone), Sunday’s headline was one for the record books. “‘Transgender’ Could Be Defined out of Existence under Trump Administration,” the banner read, triggering mass hysteria in liberal quarters across the country. There’s just one problem: not one bit of it is true.

No one is “defining transgenders out of existence.” What President Trump is doing is following the law — which, after eight years of Barack Obama’s overreach, is suddenly a shocking concept. Under the last administration, liberals were so used to the president twisting the rules to suit the Left’s agenda that it’s news when Donald Trump decides to operate within the plain text of law. As far as the New York Times is concerned, the most “drastic” thing any president could do is bring America back in line with legal statutes. And this non-story that’s setting the far-Left’s hair on fire is nothing more than that.

In Sunday’s piece, a trio of reporters argues that the Trump administration is disenfranchising people by defining gender as it always has been: a “biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth.” No one is quite sure how that’s radical, since it’s how the law has been understood both before and since 1964. Not a single president questioned it until Obama, who decided that he didn’t care what the Civil Rights Act said. He was going to “reinterpret” the 54-year-old law on “sex” discrimination to mean “sexual orientation” and gender identity too.

The Times’ agenda is obvious — painting Trump as the extremist, when the real radicalism was ignoring the law in the first place. Well, reporters may be out of practice with the truth these days, but it’s time they came to grips with one important reality. The president is not a legislator, no matter how much Obama acted like one. If they want America to change the way it defines discrimination, they need to start by asking the right branch of government.

Tony Perkins is the embodiment of the reality that “Christian” “conservatism” is not about the Bible or the Constitution – it’s about hatred and cruelty.

Latina GOP Candidate Jazmina Saavedra Harasses and Films Trans In California Denny's Bathroom

Latina GOP Candidate Jazmina Saavedra Harasses and Films Transgender Woman In California Denny’s Bathroom

Jazmina Saavedra, who is currently running for Congress in California, and a spokesperson of Latinos For Trump California filmed herself harassing a transgender woman using the women’s bathroom at a Denny’s in Los Angeles.

Saavedra, is campaigning for a seat in California’s 44th District challenging incumbent Rep. Nanette Barragán (D-Calif.)., live-streamed the incident on Facebook Live on Tuesday

Via The Hill:

“I’m trying to use the ladies’ room and there is a man here claiming that he is a lady,” Saavedra said, entering the bathroom and filming outside the stall.

“You’re invading my privacy,” the transgender woman inside the stall said.

“You’re invading my privacy because I’m a woman and I deserve to use the woman, the ladies’ room,” Saavedra responded.

She then left the restroom and waited outside for the individual to exit.

“So, that guy is violating my right to use the ladies’ room here, and he’s saying he’s a lady! Stupid guy,” Saavedra said.

She then confronted the transgender woman as she left the restroom.

“Excuse me, I was using the toilet. … Why are you singling me out, lady? And I see you yesterday following me,” the woman responded.

“I was with my pepper spray ready and I called the manager so he helped me,” Saavedra filmed herself saying after the woman departed. “How can I be with a man inside of the ladies’ room just because he thinks he’s a lady? This is unbelievable. Only in California this happens.”

Rep Barragán issued a statement criticizing Saavedra and the incident at the Denny’s.

“I was appalled by the treatment that this woman received for simply trying to use the restroom. Everyone has the right to their own identity, and the right not to be discriminated against for who they are.”

Trans and Gender Identity Issues Overshadow LGB At Equality Act House Judiciary Committee Meeting

Trump’s Education Department Will No Longer Accept Trans Students Bathroom Complaints

The Trump administration has announced that it will not investigate or take any action on complaints filed by transgender students who have been banned from using the restroom of their choice.

This reverses 2016 guidance by the Obama administration that directed public school students to use the bathroom that matched their gender identity.

Via CNN:

“Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, not gender identity,” Education Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Hill told CNN Monday. “Therefore the question is whether a student (regardless of gender identity) has been discriminated against on the basis of sex. Where students, including transgender students, are penalized or harassed for failing to conform to sex-based stereotypes, that is sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. In the case of bathrooms, however, longstanding regulations provide that separating facilities on the basis of sex is not a form of discrimination prohibited by Title IX.

The secretary would contend that it is the job of Congress or the courts, not the bureaucracy, to determine whether or not the term ‘sex’ under Title IX encompasses ‘gender identity,'”

Washington Sen. Patty Murray, the top Democrat on the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, said that “choosing to ignore the rights of transgender students and to not enforce Title IX when it comes to their protection is an unambiguous step backwards for civil rights in this country.”

Eliza Byard, the executive director of GLSEN, called the Department of Education’s decision not to investigate the complaints “cruel” and said the department’s policies were “hurting transgender students in concrete and far-reaching ways.”

 

 

Chelsea Manning Files Maryland US Senate Bid

 

Via: The Washington Post 

Chelsea Manning, the transgender former Army private who was convicted of passing sensitive government documents to Wikileaks, has filed to run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, according to federal election filings.

Manning, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment, would be challenging Democrat Ben Cardin, who has served two terms in the Senate and is up for re-election in November. Cardin is Maryland’s senior senator and is considered an overwhelming favorite to win a third term.

Manning, 30, who is formerly known as Bradley Manning, was convicted in 2013 of the largest leak of classified documents in U.S. history and was sentenced to 35 years in prison. Last year, then President Obama commuted Manning’s sentence to time served and she was released from a military prison in Kansas.

 

Manning’s filing was received January 11, according to Federal Election Commission records. 

Donald Trump slammed Manning’s release statement on Twitter and described her as an “ungrateful TRAITOR” who “never should have been released from prison.”

CDC Ends COVID Watch Program For Cruise Lines. What Can Go Wrong?

Trump Administration Bans 7 (Dirty) Words at the CDC, Includes: “Diversity, Transgender, and Science-based”

 

Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words sent bu the Trump administration at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget.

The forbidden words are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”

Via The Washington Post:

In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. Instead of “science-based” or ­“evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said. In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered.

The question of how to address such issues as sexual orientation, gender identity and abortion rights — all of which received significant visibility under the Obama administration — has surfaced repeatedly in federal agencies since President Trump took office. Several key departments — including Health and Human Services, which oversees the CDC, as well as Justice, Education, and Housing and Urban Development — have changed some federal policies and how they collect government information about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans.

At the CDC, the meeting about the banned words was led by Alison Kelly, a senior leader in the agency’s Office of Financial Services, according to the CDC analyst, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak publicly. Kelly did not say why the words are being banned, according to the analyst, and told the group that she was merely relaying the information.

News of the ban on certain words hasn’t yet spread to the broader group of scientists at the CDC, but it’s likely to provoke a backlash, the analyst said. “Our subject matter experts will not lay down quietly — this hasn’t trickled down to them yet.”

Cue George Carlin.
