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 ...

Julia Beck testifies to Congress: gender identity undermines women’s space

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. Julia explains how the requirement to interpret sex as "gender identity" under VAWA has made it impossible to maintain women-only spaces for survivors of male violence to heal away from the threatening and re-traumatizing presence of men. 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...

The NYT misrepresents British feminists, and ignores their American counterparts

The New York Times commissioned this editorial on our visit to Capitol Hill last week, and didn’t even get a full paragraph without an error of fact. Since the author never bothered to ask anyone involved, it’s not a surprise that they embarrassed themselves right out of the gate. As the paper has repeatedly ignored many past offers, by ourselves and others, to directly rebut their published misrepresentations on gender identity, we might as well post here. The full title of this longform, low-fact, social media-style clapback is, “How British Feminism Became ...

Shunning and Democracy

Cooties vs. Disfellowshipping: A comparison A lot of the online-motivated left treats politics much like a game of “cooties,” which kids played at elementary school when I was little. How it works is, one child says that another child has cooties, and then all the other children run away from the unfortunate for the rest of the play period if they come near. It’s like a snap, arbitrary, peer diagnosis of leprosy. Or, a bit arbitrary, but it was usually a child that the other kids just didn’t like very much. Everyone has their own line for people they ...

Posie Parker in the House

A report back to members, from Capitol Hill I wasn’t sure what we were getting into when we heard a few weeks ago that Posie Parker and Venice Allan and Julia Long wanted to come to the US to protest Twitter for acting like misogynist jerks. At the least, it sounded like it would be interesting. We offered to help put them in touch with decision makers here, so that people in the US could hear how bad it is living in a country with no First Amendment protections and self-identification of sex treated like a civil right. On the last three days of their visit, these ...
