Just found this from a couple of years ago. Shes says so much, so well.

So much to learn from this. Its a great lesson for men and warm, compassionate and accessible explanation of why women have to have women's spaces and set their own boundaries. 

Again and again I hear people criticise women generally, and feminists in particular, for not accepting transwomen as “real” women and for “excluding” them. Trans people are oppressed, they say, and these so-called exclusionary behaviours and attitudes create the dogma behind this oppression just as racism is the dogma behind the oppression of Black people. It is misguided, they say, and dangerous and is called transphobia, which makes you, me, anyone who doesn’t agree with them, a bigot who deserves to go to hell with all fascists and racists.

A Call for an Alternative Treatment path For Dysphoria

The following appeared on my twitter feed from Rosemary Goude (@greengoude):

I thought it was beautifully written and a very humane and moving call for a better way to deal with dysphoria.

I'll keep a copy of it here.  As a reference and an inspiration.

People Want to Fight Back.

Someone tweeted me. Ive read your blog! Ive hit peak with that CPS crap... theyre indoctrinating our kids and I want to fight back.

Well that scares the hell out of me. I'm just a dad who failed to keep his daughter safe from trans. I can barely organise my own life, let alone a political movement.

Feels Like a Movement?

I've been quiet for a while, there's a big project in the pipeline, but now I've more time to write.

This is sort a reply to a comment in reddit: help_put_pressure_on_the_washington_post

This is a great idea. I suggest you email the author of the 4th wave now site, as a large number of GC parents of trans-identified kids read that site. /u/GenderCriticalDad might know more parents, as well as Penny White (I don't know how to contact her -- she has a YouTube channel, so maybe that way?).

More and more people are popping up who have hit peak trans, want to resist the trans  hegemony or want to support what people are doing. Which is really great, but posses difficult challenges..

There's groups coming together, but its all word of mouth or friends of friends, I was approached, but only after starting this blog. Two people took a chance, sussed me out and introduced me to others.
