Lesbian Hate Crime: Opposing Transgender “Women”

Written by Joe Scudder

At the London Pride parade, opposition to men is a Lesbian hate crime if the men claim to be women.

The full insanity of progressivism and political correctness was on display at the London Pride parade where many called on the removing women for the Lesbian hate crime of not liking men!

I thought that was always an essential feature of the Lesbian mission statememt.

Apparently, that is only allowable in cases where the men acknowledge they are men. If they pretend to be women, Lesbians are obligated to accept them as women.

Are they obligated to have sex with them?

The Federalist reports, “Lesbians Accused Of Hate Crimes For Objecting To Transgenderism At London Pride Festival.”

London Mayor Sadiq Khan condemned an “anti-transgender group” for “hijacking” the July 7 London Pride parade. The mayor’s spokesperson told Pink News UK, “Pride is about celebrating difference and London’s amazing LGBT+ community. It’s about showing those round the world that in our great city you can be free to be whoever you want to be and love whoever you want to love. The vast majority of those present at today’s march respected and embraced that and the Mayor condemns the tiny minority who did not. Transphobia is never acceptable.”

The “anti-transgender” group was actually a group of lesbian women. The group, organized under the hashtag #GetTheLOut, joined the parade with banners saying “Lesbian, not Queer,” “Lesbian = Female Homosexual,” and “Transactivism Erases Lesbians.”

The group was not included in those allowed to march in the parade, but after being told to leave, they laid down on the street in front of the parade, preventing it from moving forward. The organizers decided to allow them to march ahead of the parade, which created additional controversy for appearing to “lead” it.

LGBT+ Lib Dems Chair Jennie Rigg called for the organizers to resign and provide a full, public apology. Others called for the group members to be arrested under hate crime charges. UK morning radio host Alex Duffy tweeted, “Definitely sounds like they were directing hate against a group based on sexual identity and therefore a hate crime and surely they will now all be arrested and charged?”

While LGBT media and advocates universally denounced the group, transwomen (biological males) were the most vocal. Trans activist Avery Edison demanded “I used to say ‘No cops at Pride!’, but after seeing the way they removed the TERFs [a rude word to describe feminists who object to transgenderism] who hijacked the parade today–[holds hand to earpiece]–ah, wait, no, it turns out they didn’t do that, they just let them carry on and spread transphobia. No cops at Pride. No TERFs either.”
