YOU become responsible

Oct 22nd, 2019 11:52 am | By

McKinnon shared this extraordinary tweet last night:

Missgendering is a HUGE trigger for suicidal ideation. Every time u MISGENDER a trans person YOU become responsible for their suicide attempts. If u have ever misgendered someone and as a result they committed, then YOU are to blame for said person losing their life. #transrights

Seriously? Is that true even if the “misgendered” person is not present when you “misgender” zem? And how does anyone know the person who “committed” did it because YOU “misgendered” zem?

If both of those claims are true then talking to or about people at all becomes a terrible hazard. Maybe we’d better all just stop doing it?

Don’t forget, McKinnon is an academic, whose field is … Read the rest

Do better people

Do better people

Rachel McKinnon has some deep thoughts for people who aren’t respectful of sport and fair play.

Masters women’s track cycling is a rare and special thing. It allows us to extend our competitive careers and not think so much about contracts or going to the Olympics. We’re a small community, and we should take GOOD CARE of each other.

Like, by not competing against each other if we’re not actually women? That kind of GOOD CARE of each other?

Think about the optics of your behaviors. My new friend, multi time Danish elite national champion is now a friend. We bonded. And she chose to wear one of my #sportisahumanright stickers on her jersey on the podium!! That’s a

Stronger competition

Oct 20th, 2019 11:33 am | By

Champ has more:

I have yet to meet a real champion who has a problem with trans women.

Real champions want stronger competition.

If you win because bigotry got your competition banned… you’re a loser.

Real champions may want stronger competition but that doesn’t mean they want unfair competition. Champion footballers age 12 no doubt want to play against the best age 12s, that doesn’t mean they want to play against the best adult players.

What a truly gruesomely self-serving self-flattering dishonest thing to say – that conceited selfish narcissistic piece of shit telling the women he’s doing them a favor by upping the competition when in fact he’s stealing their chances.

It’s not being a loser for women … Read the rest



Second place kept her distance

Second place kept her distance

DOCTOR Rachel won his race against the women:

I’ll just let this photo to stand for itself. Two new friends, and a serious supporter of my racing, sharing the joy of achieving hard-won goals. Can’t wait to see Kirsten next year.

…and then somewhat less… https://www.instagram.com/p/B31KuybliJC/?igshid=6bg9xqlm7maw …

Louise Moody has a better photo:

Doc Rachel comments:

Third place, Kirsten wore my sticker as a sign of solidarity. We hugged, and are embracing here in celebration. Second place kept her distance and put her hand behind her back as her own sign… signifying something like poor sportsmanship.

Except that “second place” was actually first place, but Rachel stole her medal by cheating. Rachel has some nerve accusing … Read the rest



His birth certificate says he’s really female

Oct 20th, 2019 9:41 am | By

What’s DOCTOR Rachel up to? Accusing other people of “poor sportsmanship.” Yes really.

But first there was the rallying call to the troops, excuse me I mean the “babes.”

Babes, just ignore the random transphobes. Block and let them scream into the void.

Please?

The void. He thinks that if he blocks us what we’re left with is the void. Now that’s narcissism.

Either or.

Many people claim to support trans women

But often they only support us until our lives impact them in any meaningful way

In my case, people literally say they support trans women…but not in sport

There can be no ‘but’

We are either full and equal women, or not

We are.

How? Why? … Read the rest



Do you SUCK AT YOUR SPORT?

Oct 19th, 2019 4:30 pm | By

McKinnon is still gloating.

Sometimes you have a chance to create an iconic moment…this was mine.

It’s “iconic” all right, but not in the way he means.

Beth Rep yesterday:

“I might have an advantage, but I don’t always win”

Male logic for why it’s ok for males to compete in female only events — apparently as long as they don’t win EVERY single time, it’s fair.

This male athlete smashed another women’s cycling world record yesterday. He gets to race against women because he “feels like a woman” inside. When will all you still staying quiet on this issue join us in the fight to #savewomenssport? Find your voice.

It is excluding women and girls from their own category

Oct 19th, 2019 12:00 pm | By

BBC Sport:

Some notable female athletes have said transgender athletes should not compete in female competitions.

They claim women who were born biological males retain a competitive advantage in some sport and have called for more research into the issue.

They don’t “claim” that, they simply point it out.

Ex-swimmer Sharron Davies said it will take female athletes “being thrown under the bus” at Tokyo 2020 before changes are made to transgender rules.

Prominent trans rights campaigner McKinnon has defended her right to compete, but said: “I’ve thought about giving up about half a dozen times a year at least.

“It’s so stressful to even show up for me given the sort of attention I get.

“Every athlete has

DOCTOR McKinnon denounces

Oct 19th, 2019 11:43 am | By

McKinnon’s campaign to get more attention and fraudulent medals and attention is in high gear today. Just 15 minutes ago he announced:

WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY? She says GOLD! Back-to-back world sprint champion!! Way too many people to thank. Thank you especially to the dozens of fans cheering your heads off, and I’m glad to have met a new friend…

Yeah baby! Cheater’s gold! Awesome athlete Rachel – formerly Rhys – McKinnon wins GOLD by racing against women!

Pride!

There he is, in all his glory, a man who stole a gold medal from a woman.

He has a new pinned tweet, which is a “press release”:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: “DR. RACHEL MCKINNON RESPONDS TO BRITISH CYCLIST

Look at his…fox

Oct 16th, 2019 9:09 am | By

Women are privileged and oppressive and violent and in need of dire punishment, but pretend women are AWESOME. Like Rachel McKinnon for instance:

Silver…by…one… fucking… HUNDREDTH.

He SO almost won the gold…against one of those horrible oppressive women.

The fox poking out of his crotch is a nice touch.

More photo:

Sure, he towers over them, but never you mind. The only good woman is a pretend woman.

Modestly, he thanks all the little people.

A big giant thank you to everyone who got me to where I am. I set a personal best in the 500m TT last night of 36.911, and missed out on gold by only 0.010s. it’s rough to miss gold by so

Confidence is high

DOCTOR McKinnon is off to the races.

Final TT prep before worlds!! I head to Manchester tomorrow. I’m anticipating 500m and 200m TT PBs…and a new masters women 200m TT world record.

#rainbowfoxracing #rainbowfox #worldchampion #herthighness…

He’s anticipating a new world record. How can he be so confident? Could it be because he’s anticipating it in a women’s race?… Read the rest



A totally normal if not almost universal experience for human beings

Oct 1st, 2019 9:52 am | By

The discussion continues.

Harrop again:

Same. I feel like I’m being labelled here — as a gay man — as being somewhat problematic or “immoral” for being exclusively attracted to other men. I feel like I deal with enough of that kind of oppressive & invalidating rhetoric already, & I feel somewhat attacked by it tbh

McKinnon:

Do you think it’s wrong for someone, who is sexually orientated to include men, not to date a trans man because he has a vagina?

I’ll just format the rest like play dialogue for ease of reading.

Harrop: I think choosing to be or not to be intimate with a man with a particular genital configuration or indeed any type of … Read the rest



Between folks within our community

Oct 1st, 2019 9:21 am | By

Even Adrian Harrop can see it.

I‘ve stayed out of a certain discussion today — if you know, you know. However, what I will say is that it’s so disappointing to see such disrespect & division between folks within our community. I hope that folks will, in the fullness of time, try to find some common ground.

There is always room for debate and disagreement. Everyone sees things through the prism of their own life experience, and often our individual “takes” will come into conflict with one another. But please — for want of a better expression — let’s try to keep it above the belt.

When folks make things personal, & make disparaging or disrespectful remarks about each

As you are

A little McKinnon for refreshment after all that Trump on crack.

 

You: “I like dick”

Girl with dick says ‘Hey, wanna date?’
“Oh…no…I only like dick on guys”

Guy responds to date ad: ‘Sup girl’ …guy has a vagina
“Oh, sorry, I only like guys with dicks”

Both cases trans people are left in the cold. ‘Genital preferences’ are transphobic.

But not wanting to have sex with X isn’t phobia of X. We’re not obliged to want to have sex with anyone and everyone, with no preferences of any kind. McKinnon’s assertion makes nonsense of both heterosexual and homosexual – it asserts that we all have to be omnisexual. But we don’t have to. We don’t have to stop … Read the rest

Wow.

“Rachel” McKinnon a couple of hours ago:

Sorry Twitter won’t let me embed tweets any more. The skeleton is dancing and bopping joyously around.

“Jessie the Cute Tran” is amused.

You do make me laugh Rachel.

Indefinitely postponed

Aug 31st, 2019 9:47 am | By

Meanwhile though that talk McKinnon was scheduled to give has been cancelled (or, tactfully, “rescheduled”) because no one was interested. It has already been scrubbed from the How To Academy and Eventbrite pages.

A tweet:

P.S. I’ve seen an e-mail saying that ticket numbers for McKinnon’s talk were “embarrassingly low” and that How To: Academy has actually received more objections to McKinnon’s talk than tickets sold. On that basis, it has been CANCELLED.

Further elucidation:

To pre-empt McKinnon’s lies that TRANSPHOBES were SOLELY responsible for cancelling his talk, I attach an e-mail from.the director of How To: Academy which explains that ticket sales were so low it was EMBARRASSING TO RUN THE EVENT.

I wonder if the talk … Read the rest



No, as a matter of fact, it’s not

McKinnon is working on motivation. Athletes need motivation.

‘Is this what a world champion would do?’ is a question I use often to get through the hardest workouts. I’m putting together a killer garage gym for my lifting needs. I’m designing up a personal motivational poster. Thoughts?

I have a thought. My thought is that R. McKinnon is not a genuine world champion, but instead is a man who stole a world championship from a woman by competing against her. My further thought is that the exhibitionistic bragging about this feat is quite astonishingly repellent. Even if you buy the fairy tale that men can “become” women by saying the magic words and doing some hormone-fiddling, it still doesn’t … Read the rest



McKinnon on the Science of Fairness

Aug 26th, 2019 1:12 pm | By

Speaking of McKinnon – there’s an event in London in October:

Fri, 11 October 2019

6:45 pm – 8:00 pm

Transgender Athletes and the Science of Fairness
Dr Rachel McKinnon

VENUE

The Tabernacle (Off Portobello)

34-35 Powis Square, Notting Hill, London,

W11 2AY

The science of fairness, eh? I’m not sure Rachel McKinnon is the person I would consult on the subject of fairness.

Should trans athletes participate in women’s sport? Philosophy professor, activist and world champion cyclist Rachel McKinnon sifts science and ethics from politics and prejudice.

Well now wait a second. McKinnon is a “world champion cyclist” only because he has a large muscular male body and he races against women. He does that and he boasts … Read the rest



Trans activist rejoices at woman’s impending death

Aug 26th, 2019 11:30 am | By

Less than four years ago, in October 2015, I wrote about Magdalen Berns’s candidacy for Women’s Liberation Group Convenor at Edinburgh University and the obnoxious way they labeled her “whorephobic” because she’s not pro-pimp. She wrote a guest post here in January.

She promptly went on to become a genius feminist star on YouTube – so the misogynist bit of the universe took her out with glioblastoma, pretty much the worst brain cancer there is. Last week she moved to hospice care. My opinion of these latter developments is that they suck.

“Rachel” McKinnon on the other hand is a fan.

Eh, if they’re a trash human actively trying to harm marginalized people because of who they are?
