Statement on Supreme Court Title VII Transgender Claims

The Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) is cautiously optimistic about the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to review questions about how federal employment discrimination laws apply to specific types of sex discrimination claims. In one set of cases the Court will decide whether discrimination “because of . . . sex” under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 covers claims of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. (Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, consolidated with Altitude Express Inc. v. Zarda). In another case, the Court will decide whether ...

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 ...

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 ...

Women’s Liberation Front statement on introduction of the Equality Act

Recently, in a Palm Springs, CA, swim center, three teenage girls were traumatized by encountering a naked man showering in the women’s locker room. They reported this to the police, who did nothing, because the man “identifies as a woman.” [1] The gender identity provisions of the Equality Act will make this state of affairs the law of the land in all 50 states, enshrining in federal law a shocking repudiation of the long-established right to bodily privacy from the opposite sex, through the lawful provision of single-sex accommodations. For the sake of the ...

Watch WoLF member Julia Beck testify to members of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security about the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) which Congress allowed to expire last December, 2018.

Unfortunately, instead of using the opportunity to ask Julia some important questions, several Democrats chose to ...

He can’t be she

“I will not call a male “she”; thirty-two years of suffering in this androcentric society, and of surviving, have earned me the title “woman”; one walk down the street by a male transvestite, five minutes of his being hassled (which he may enjoy), and then he dares, he dares to think he understands our pain? No, in our mothers’ names and in our own, we must not call him sister.”— Robin Morgan, 1973 In the UK, the original Gender Recognition Act (GRA) set aside a legal class for people who were diagnosed as transsexual and wanted to generally be seen ...

The Male Sports Writers Who Say the End of Women’s Sports is No Big Deal

Recently Martina Navratilova was shunned by queer sports organizations but cheered by many others for taking a stand against male sports cheats acting under cover of “gender identity.” Since then male sports writers have been using their platforms to proclaim that boys must be allowed to compete in races against girls simply because they claim to “identify as girls,” and anyone questioning this new orthodoxy is a bigot. In the U.S., the latest one to come out as a sexist is Dave Zirin, sports editor for The Nation and frequent guest writer for outlets that claim ...

Lesbian sports legend Martina Navratilova steps up for women and girls

After withdrawing for a time to research the subject, lesbian sport legend Martina Navratilova has published a piece in the Sunday Times of London, affirming her commonsense view that it’s unfair for men who identify as women to be allowed to dominate women’s athletic competitions. The reaction has been swift and, for anyone familiar with current transactivist behavior, sadly predictable. The managing editor of Outsports.com – a man who reportedly left his wife to "transition" in middle age, now calls himself Dawn, and tweets from an account named SportsG...
