Hold still while I slap you, bitch

On and on it goes, ratcheting ever up.

Hooray hooray as a man is named CEO of Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre.

Mridul Wadhwa takes over from Caroline Burrell who has led the organisation for 16 years.

Mridul said: “I am very excited to be moving to ERCC. Having been involved in the violence against women and equality sectors in Scotland since 2005, I am really looking forward to leading the committed team of women who do such incredible work supporting survivors of sexual violence. 

“I am especially pleased to be joining the organisation at a time when it is seeking to increase its accessibility to and inclusion of survivors of gender based violence from marginalised and easy to ignore communities. As a passionate, loud and consistent advocate for the rights of trans women and Black Minority Ethnic women, I look forward to working alongside my new colleagues to ensure that we provide inclusive and flexible support.

Ah yes those marginalised and easy to ignore communities such as men who pretend to be women and steal their top jobs in organizations that exist to protect or lobby for actual women. It doesn’t get a whole lot more in your face than that. “Hahaha bitch I’m the boss of your fancy ‘rape crisis’ club now so you’d better get used to it.”

This business of men who pretend to be women portraying themselves as an extra-marginalised kind of woman because of their being men – it’s such a brilliant con game and so fucking infuriating because it is. Women are now the privileged powerful domineering callous aristocracy tormenting the quivering helpless exploited…men. And the men are getting away with it.

Kathryn Dawson, Chair of ERCC’s Board of Directors, said: “Mridul brings a wealth of experience to ERCC, from her work in the wider rape crisis and women’s movements, to her activism and campaigning on trans rights, BME rights and other equalities issues. We are delighted that a woman with such a strong track record in improving the lives of women and campaigning against all forms of inequality will be leading our organisation into the future.”

But he’s a man. That job should go to a woman, not a man. That should be too obvious to say.
