Another trophy bagged

The Oxford Mail has the story on the abrupt last minute cancellation of Rachel Ara’s talk:

A FEMINIST artist who was due to speak at Oxford Brookes University tonight has had her talk cancelled at the last minute after accusations from students that she is transphobic.

Rachel Ara announced on Twitter this morning that her event had been cancelled after complaints from students and speculated that her art is ‘too challenging for today’s youth’.

It comes after Oxford Brookes LGBTQ+ society sent a letter to the university’s pro-vice chancellor, professor Anne-Marie Kilday, condemning the invitation to the artist to speak at the university because of her alleged transphobic views.

Ms Ara, who won the Aesthetica Art Prize 2016 for her project This Much I’m Worth, was due to speak today about her work at Oxford Brookes School of Arts.

Her work? Who cares about that? All that matters is that somebody somewhere said she is transphobic. What kind of monster gives a damn about her work??!

In the letter to the professor, the LGBTQ+ society said: “Rachel Ara is a trans exclusionary radical feminist (TERF) who frequently shares transphobic discourse on her social media.

In other words they found two (2) retweets that they consider “sharing transphobic discourse.” Watch what you retweet, bitch!

“She has openly showed support for the “LGB Alliance” which is openly transphobic and seeks to isolate trans people within the LGBTQ+ movement.”

That’s “shown” in English, and no it isn’t and no it doesn’t. Why are the people in charge so reluctant to tell these twerps to fuck off? Why do they take this illiterate mindless garbage so seriously?

“She has also openly shown support for Selina Todd, who is a strong advocate of “A Woman’s Place, a transphobic organisation acting under the guise of academic freedom.”

Selina Todd is an award-winning feminist historian who specializes in the history of working class women, but don’t let that slow you down.

The creeps are proud of their letter and shared it (OPENLY, to use their censorious word) on Twitter:

And Oxford Brookes, astonishingly, did what these two creeps told them to do.
