Non-metaphorical violence

There was a talk / discussion event scheduled this evening in London, Miranda Yardley and Julia Long on the meaning of gender identity. It was originally scheduled to be held at New Cross Learning, which used to be New Cross People’s Library which is a much cooler name…but yesterday NCL canceled.

Discussions of gender are scary things.

Someone found a new venue, so the speakers and attendees arranged to meet at Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park and go to the (undisclosed) venue from there.

When they did, this happened:

A 60-year-old woman has just been beaten up by 4 Trans Rights activists. To smash up her camera originally, but was then set upon by at least 4 men and women who punched her and kicked her to the floor and continued. Footage out soon.

Do you think this is liberationary? Beating up a grandma. Really?

This left photo is the side of her that got punched repeatedly and you can also see her cut hand. She was also strangled as you can see round the base of her neck on the right photo.

“Activists” followed the scary feminists to the venue, tried to rush the door, and then stood outside shouting throughout the talk. The women inside were afraid to leave.

All because some people think “gender identity” is thoughts and feelings. I don’t see the need to punch women in the face for that.
