Women’s Liberation Front files friend-of-the-court brief in Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC and Aimee Stephens

Case highlights the importance of distinguishing between sex and gender for purposes of interpreting nation’s civil rights laws and highlights First Amendment implications of compelling speech. WASHINGTON – The Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), an unapologetically radical feminist organization that fights for the rights, privacy, and safety of women and girls, today filed an amicus brief (PDF) in the case of R.G. and G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Aimee Stephens (U.S. Supreme Court Docket No. 18-107).  In that case, a man named Aimee Stephens sued his ...

California legislators vote again to endanger women in prison

Yesterday, California’s Assembly Public Safety Committee passed SB 132, a corrections bill already passed by the Senate, directing prison officials to house inmates by gender identity, rather than by sex. Below are the prepared remarks of Abigail Lunetta, who testified before the committee in opposition to the measure. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. My name is Abigail Lunetta. I am a Democrat, a feminist and an advocate for women’s rights. I’m here today because if SB-132 as it is currently written becomes law, the state of California will sanction the desire of male rapists to share quarters with female inmates. It is already ...

Bergdorf, Jones, Makings, and the reckless endangerment of us all

[Adult content note.]Decades ago, sensible gay men, bisexuals, lesbians, and feminists, and particularly the lesbian feminists, kicked the pedophile advocacy brigade out of the gay rights and sexual liberation movements because, although this is not known to be a direct quote, to hell with them. On the basis of that unappreciated work, the modern LGBT movement has been able to make the entirely reasonable point that same-sex attracted people are no likelier than straight people to prey on kids. Further, that if you care that it’s taking advantage when it’s adult men and boys, but you’re willing to entertain the idea that it’s a legitimate ...

Supreme Court refuses to hear Boyertown students’ privacy concerns over gender identity

We are deeply disappointed that the Supreme Court has failed to take up the case of Doe v. Boyertown, where we had filed a brief. The decision not to hear the case was announced yesterday. It means that a lower court’s decision — to let the Boyertown school district end students’ rights to privacy in single-sex locker and restroom facilities on the basis of gender identity — will stand. Alexis Lightcap, one of the students suing to protect her own privacy, and the privacy of other girls, had this to say: "I wish that the school had protected my privacy somehow. It felt like a specific group of people were protected while all the ...

California Legislature Poised to put men in women’s prisons under SB 132

Dear Senator Wiener:  Your proposed bill, SB 132, would harm one of the most vulnerable groups in society: incarcerated women. It would allow any male at any time to self-declare that he has a woman "gender identity," and on that basis allow him to demand to be housed in a women’s correctional facility. It would forbid prison officials from taking into account material factors that put women at greater risk of harm when incarcerated with men, including anatomy, the presence or absence of a diagnosis of gender dysphoria, and the presence or absence of any other physical or mental health diagnosis.  If adopted, SB 132 will put women ...

Women Unite In Opposition To The Equality Act

May 14, 2019 The Honorable Nancy PelosiU.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, DC, 20515 Dear Speaker Pelosi: Women are uniting in opposition to the so-called “Equality Act” because Congress should only pass laws that protect women, not threaten, silence or abandon us. The Equality Act seeks to enshrine in civil rights law a new protected class of sex based on “gender identity” that claims no objective standard, medical diagnosis, or permanent intent. Under this bill, gender identity is nothing more than a person’s perception of self that can be changed at any time, for any reason, and cannot be challenged. The danger to women ...

House Democrats vote to ban legal recognition of sex

With today’s vote for the Orwellian “Equality Act,” House Democrats have abandoned their core commitment to women’s basic civil rights, privacy, and participation in public life, while cruelly mocking our reasonable safety concerns as “hysterical” and “fear mongering.” I could not be more disappointed in them. Their blatant disregard for the privacy and safety of adolescent girls, women who are incarcerated or need emergency shelter, women and girls in long-term care, women of faith who follow strict guidelines about where they can take their ease, and every woman who simply wants to be able to change without a man around, is ...

The Washington Post ‘celebrates’ women’s Civil War history by erasing it

Based on a comment thread complaint over Twitter, the Washington Post recently decided that Jennie Hodgers, who fought in the Civil War as Albert Cashier, needs to be understood historically as if she were a man. They rewrote their introduction to what was supposed to be a historical retrospective series on women’s participation in war as follows: “On August 6, 1862, a shy young man from Belvidere, Illinois, signed up to fight for the North in the Civil War. His name was Albert Cashier.” The followed their text introduction to the podcast content with this chilling ‘correction’: “We incorrectly included a story about ...

TRANS STARBUCKS AND THE BUTCH GENOCIDE

From an Anonymous Sister: When you see female youth transitioning, it's overwhelmingly the tomboys. These girls would have grown up to be butch like me. I grabbed a coffee at the Trans Starbucks again this week. Sat for a while to watch 3 butches pretend they are men. Every butch lesbian who is critical about this horrific trans. movement---that would push young lesbians into believing they are male and amputating their healthy breasts and taking cross-hormones---every butch knows what they are seeing.  It’s like looking into a mirror and recalling all of the angst, hatred, parental and peer rejection all over again. Except with these ...
