Why won't the Liberal government make its Gender Based Analysis public?
Our prime minister is a proud feminist, a zealous champion in the protection of women’s rights. With that objective in mind, Justin Trudeau decreed early in his tenure that all new policies by his government would thenceforth include a Gender Based Analysis (GBA) to assess their impact on women. Bill C-16, informally known as the “Transgender Rights Bill,” was proposed in the summer of 2016 and rushed to passage in May 2017. C-16 added the terms “gender identity” and “gender expression” to the Canadian Human Rights Act and to our Criminal Code. It wasn’t long before sharp-eyed observers expressed strong misgivings about C-16’s shortcomings and potential for harm to biological women.

Transgender homicide rate 'remarkably low' despite cries of 'national epidemic'
Calls to combat a purported epidemic of killings targeting transgender people, especially women of color, are rising, even though U.S. data indicates that people who identify as members of the opposite sex are less likely to end up as homicide victims than their non-transgender counterparts. Kentucky State University associate professor Wilfred Reilly found that the 2017 homicide death rate for transgender people was about 1.48 per 100,000, less than a third of the overall murder rate of about 5 per 100,000 and a fraction of the rate for men in general (6.68) or black people (18.8).

Detransitioners are living proof the practices surrounding ‘trans kids’ need be questioned
On November 30th, 2019, over 200 attendees packed inside a secret location in the centre of Manchester to attend the first-ever forum of its kind. The sold-out event, “Detransition: The Elephant in the Room,” signified the official launch of the The Detransition Advocacy Network (TDAN), and was organized by local independent feminist collective, Make More Noise, and Charlie Evans, a detransitioner and a co-founder of TDAN. The event consisted of two panels: the first featured medical experts discussing their expertise and insight into gender reassignment services, and the second was made up of desisting young women who have been ostracized in this new age of blind gender ideology acceptance. The two-hour long discussion was opened by the testimonies of two anonymous female-to-male (FTM) detransitioners. They called for better support for desisting individuals and agreed that physical transition is not always the perfect solution to dealing with debilitating gender dysphoria.

UN Women to Replace “Women” with “Gender”
The UN agency for women announced it is no longer focused on women’s rights but rather “equality of all genders,” including LGBTIQ+. The announcement came at a UN event called “Gender Diversity Beyond Binaries.” UN Women Executive Director Mfuzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said, “We cannot talk about ‘leaving no one behind’ without LBGQTI+,” that panel moderator Imara Jones defined as lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, questioning or queer, intersex, pan sexual, gender non-conforming, nonbinary, and “the full range of gender diversities that exist.” Mlambo-Ngcuka claimed “sexual orientation and gender identity” are core values of the Sustainable Development Goals, signaling that billions in aid meant for women may be redirected if UN agencies take it upon themselves to redefine the internationally-agreed goal of “gender equality” away from women’s rights. Mlambo-Ngcuka said, “we push the envelope every day” on what constitutes “human rights and fundamental freedoms.” UN member Stat

Bescherm vrouwen en meisjes
Deze site is - ter ondersteuning van de petitie vrouwenrecht en veiligheid, geboorteakte niet makkelijk wijzigen. - ter ondersteuning van ‘gender-kritische’ reacties op de internetconsultatie van de overheid rond de aanpassing van de ‘transgenderwet’, inclusief voorbeeldbrieven - ter ondersteuning van de internationale verklaring van de rechten van de vrouw De minister wil het eenvoudiger te maken om van geslacht te veranderen. Hij doet daarom een voorstel om het mogelijk te maken dat iedereen die van geslacht wil veranderen naar het stadhuis gaan en zijn of haar geslacht laten veranderen. Een man met zijn klokkenspel intact, een baard en mannenkleren kan dan met een pennenstreek zichzelf in vrouw veranderen en vanaf dat moment eisen dat hij door iedereen gezien wordt als vrouw. En toegelaten wordt tot domeinen van vrouwen.

"Jag önskar att det hade funnits andra sätt att behandla mina problem"
Nita upplever att hennes psykiska problem inte beaktades då hon inledde en könskorrigeringsprocess från kvinna till man. Efter bara några år som man ångrade hon sig och lever nu som kvinna igen. I Finland har man inlett en utredning för att få veta hur många liknande fall det finns. På Nitas bakgård finns spår av varg. Vi befinner oss mitt i skogen, ett par timmar bort från huvudstadsregionen. Närmare än så vill inte Nita att hennes bostadsområde beskrivs. Orsaken är det känsliga ämnet som Nita nu har beslutat sig för att tala offentligt om. Hon vill endast intervjuas med förnamn.

Feminists have spoken up
When Massey University responded to activist pressure by cancelling the venue booking for Speak Up For Women’s Feminism 2020 event in Wellington, it proved to be a gift to the event’s organisers. It ignited public debate around freedom of speech in our universities, and the group was invited to hold the event in the rather more up-market surroundings of Parliament’s banquet hall. A mixed crowd of around 120 people turned out to hear from four women at the centre of the current gender identity debate, including prominent Canadian feminist Meghan Murphy, who had addressed MPs at the Scottish parliament in May. Event organiser, Jenny Whyte, said that while she was “hugely grateful” for the parliamentary venue, it was a “sad reflection on Massey that it capitulated to the mob and de-platformed some vital feminist voices.”

Newshub Nation asked representatives from several trans and rainbow organisations to engage in a debate, but no-one was available. Simon Shepherd asked Murphy to explain her position this morning.
