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 ...

Today WoLF filed a friend-of-the-court brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, in the case of Drew Adams v. School Board of St. Johns County, Florida, Docket No. No. 18-13592. The case arose when students complained that plaintiff Drew Adams, a female student, was using the boys’ bathrooms at the Allen D. Nease High School outside of Jacksonville, Florida. Like many girls, Drew appeared “increasingly anxious, depressed, and withdrawn” around the time of puberty, but began self-identifying as transgender after being “mesmerized” by an ...

Today, the Women's Liberation Front (WoLF) filed a friend-of-the-court brief  in the case of Doe v. Boyertown Area School District, Supreme Court Docket No. 18-658. In this case, a group of students sued their school district over its failure to maintain safe and private sex-segregated bathrooms. It all started when Alexis Lightcap walked into the girls’ room and found a male student there. Here is Alexis in her own words: I was a junior in high school when I ducked into the girls' room at school one day to find … a boy. I froze. Three years at this particular ...
