In what world do radical feminists and abusive men get along and find ground to work together? When it comes to expressing their mutual dislike of transsexuals, it would seem:
In the discussion that follows this article Nicky, a man who hates transsexuals and threatens intersex people who stand up to him, and has already had one blog closed down by the host as being deemed a hate-site, seems to have become an ally to lesbians and feminists – nice.
So, Dave Squirrell, aka Davina, says:
“Most importantly, are the ‘groomness’ and ‘bride’ still packing? YES! Both are still packing.”
“But the couple decided against surgery due to the associated risks at their age until last year – when Jenny-Anne went under the knife for a gender reassignment op… Father-of-two Jenny-Anne went on to have a breast augmentation procedure this January followed by facial feminisation surgery.”
So, Jenny-Anne had gender reassignment last year (2010), went on to have BA & FFS this January (2011). This blogger needs to try reading what she reproduces from a tabloid newspaper of dubious reliability if she wants to maintain any credibility beyond “bigot”. But, as the general tone is up there with bigots like Fred Phelps and David Bahati, this little bit of of misinformation probably won’t bother her.
Other little problems with the misinformation in the blog…
They cannot have a civil partnership, because Helen has a male BC and Jenny Anne has a female GRC (as post-op). Under current UK law, they cannot get a civil partnership, they can only get ‘married’; that is all that is open to them. This would seem to make them more a heterosexual couple (if you really feel you need to categorise anybody else’s sexuality), where one is male, cross-dresses and identifies as female, where the other is registered as female because she is a male to female transsexual. As for the lesbian content in the paper, I’m with you there Davina, and agree it seems odd – but the clue is that it’s in the Daily Mail, not a proper newspaper; the Mail even fails Wikipedia’s criteria of what constitutes a reliable source. A lot of the men who read it are fascinated by lesbians, so they have to get that in there somewhere, eh? That’s in there for the guys, Davina, not your team.
BTW, if you are reading this Jenny-Anne and Ellen, congratulations. I hope you all had a nice day…
