Now this is a topic that comes up quite often surrounding trans people. I can get why, human curiosity compels people to know, and its not unusual for people to ask. I know a lot of trans people who get offended by that, but heck that noise, I'd way rather people want to know stuff, than … Continue reading Trans Sex & Blaire White x Riley Jay Dennis: OTP
There once was a hack called Jack,
His website a punch once packed,
But users got fucked,
‘Cause he’s a cuck,
So they left, and never came back.
On the 21 April 2015, the guardian published this article, about Twitter pledges to crack down on “harassment” and “abuse” (my quotation marks, because I’m a cynic). Three main changes were announced: “a new filter designed to automatically prevent users from seeing threatening messages”, updated, broader guidelines on threats of violence, and “temporary suspensions on users who [Twitter] does not feel justify a full ban from the service”. In a leaked February memo the C.E.O. of the time, Dick Costolo, who resigned in July, made the company’s attitude and goals clear:
We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we’ve sucked at it for years. It’s no secret and the rest of the world talks about it every day. We lose…

We, the cosigned and retweeting masses, call upon Twitter to fix its shady ban practices. Namely we call for transparency and for a real appeal system. The current system is far too automated, doesn't apply context, gives no evidence and provides no room to properly appeal decisions made by Twitter. Below is why this matters. I'm … Continue reading Call to action: Twitter #Bansparency
I've written a new post with a call to action, if you're as sick of this shit as I am, please get involved, get other people involved and maybe we can get Twitter to finally listen to us. All is not entirely lost, you can find me on Minds and Gab if you check my … Continue reading Twitter is hiding tweets about my ban (Updated)
In case you missed it; last night Twitter user and Twitch streamer @JohnnyFoxRox got a little triggered and upset that Blaire White said she would have Laci Green on her channel to talk about stuff. Incidentally that's happening tonight (Wednesday 29th March) so keep an eye out on Blaire's Twitter for a link to the … Continue reading Why @JohnnyFoxRox is a retard.
I wrote this article in response to Jenni Murray's comments. I've had it in my drafts for a while because initially I sent it to The Times asking them to host it, to further the discussion. I sent it a couple of times and now I figure they're not going to. So here it is: I'm … Continue reading Re: Jenni Murray on Trans.
This is probably one of the funniest things I've ever seen, not even gonna lie. This is the "#FreeSpeechBus" - the bright orange oxymoron. As its a bus that literally tells you how you should talk about people and is in direct response to somebody else's free speech. The bus is touring the US now, … Continue reading “””””””#FreeSpeechBus”””””””
Here's an article from The Guardian's Hadley Freeman, on the subject of Chimamander's comments on trans women. I'm yet to actually address what Chimamander said properly, though if you keep an eye on my twitter at all, you probably saw my brief skim of it. My general criticism is with the nebulous idea of male … Continue reading Response; Hadley Freeman
With the amount and diversity of people I follow on Twitter, I see a lot of talk from all sides of political and social spectrums. I bloody love it, it puts me right in the centre of the discussion, I get to see other perspective I never would have thought about and it fuels this here … Continue reading The Hijab Debate(s)
Here's an article on Shon Faye's recent video about trans people and why people should be feminists. Shon is a trans woman who has appeared on television advocating for trans people and altogether. I feel a kinship with her because I've seen the way radical feminists treat her, digging up older photos of Shon to … Continue reading “Trans people should be feminists” – Shon Faye
