Open letter to TYT (The Young Turks)

I had often wondered why TYT has barely touched on any of the issues around the trans activist movement that’s suddenly come to the fore over the last 5-8 years.  No discussion around why huge Pharmaceutical industries are funding Stonewall UK, Mermaids, the non-FDA regulated push of puberty blockers (Lupron) used to sterilize men in prisons now used on children younger than 16? The State push to remove the parental right to decide that their children should not transition? The number of young people in their 20’s pushed into transition as children (as young as 4-5 years old), and now finding themselves sterile in their twenties? Transwomen raping women in prison, rape clinics closed down if they didn’t include males – and so much more. 

It beggars belief TYT, that you don’t think this IS a serious topic.

No civil rights movement should be dependent on the elimination of womens rightsSo I said to myself ‘finally’ when I saw that the Damage Report* was covering the JK Rowling’s article in response to her tweet addressing the trend to replace the word ‘women’ from our common language to instead say ‘people who menstruate’. Which touches on the ‘gender-inclusive’ trend across all forms of media that is only applied to women, not men. The word ‘men’ isn’t replaced by the words ‘ejaculators’ or ‘inseminators’ whereas ‘women’ is replaced with terms like ‘menstruators’, ‘uterus havers’, ‘cis-women’ etc. I was disappointed. Instead of a discourse grounded in journalistic discussion, it was a laughingly ageist, misogynist mock fest of JK Rowling by two young white blokes and a woman arguing that‘ JK Rowling ‘attacked’ trans people (John’s circular reasoning that “they’re attacks because they’re attacks” was nonsensical at best) The two short videos on JK Rowling dismissed Rowling’s 3 years of research on the impact of removing the legal rights of women as the rants of a ‘triggered’ ‘boomer’.

I replied to  TYT’s request for responses and the following comments were immediately deleted x3. Which shocked me; TYT touts itself as being a liberal, progressive, incorruptible news source. But you remove polite feedback you disagree with? Tell me please TYT, what was so objectionable about the following post that it doesn’t fall under the umbrella of free speech?

Females are born into genital mutilation; femicide; date rape, marital rape, corrective rape; decreased access to education; reduced political power, and lower social status. These things are imposed on baby girls from the moment of birth because they were BORN female and biological women do not experience this oppression because of choice or self-identification. Accordingly, females need protection from this oppression precisely because they are biological females, and this means we need sex-based safeguards for biological women (as opposed to sex-based safeguards for “Anyone who identifies as a woman”).

Removing the definition of ‘woman’ across all social mediums along with the legal and common definition effectively makes a world of men as the norm and everyone else in the category of ‘other people’. We have effectively destroyed the class of women benefiting for what is in effect bares all resemblance to a men’s rights movement.

Women have a right to keep the LEGAL class of ‘women’ and that to be recognized, otherwise we face the elimination of ALL women’s rights. Thus far here are some of the rights in our different western countries that have been removed…

  • Removal of the right of journalists to report the sex, and history, of subjects
  • Elimination of sex-based crime statistics
  • Eliminating athletic programs and sports competition for women and girls
  • Removing the legal right of women to create reproductive clinics, rape crisis services, support groups, or any organizations for females
  • Removing the legal right of women to free speech related to sex-roles and gender
  • Elimination of the human right of female prisoners under state confinement to be housed separately from male prisoners
  • Elimination of the right of dependent females to prefer female providers for their intimate personal care requirements
  • Elimination of the patient right of dependent females to hospital/facility bed assignments separate from males
  • Removing the legal right of women to organize politically against sex-based oppression by males
  • Removing the legal right of women to assemble outside the presence of men
  • Removing the legal right of women to educational programs created for women outside the presence of men
  • Eliminating data collection of sex-based inequalities in areas where females are underrepresented
  • Removing the legal right of women to be free from the presence of men in areas of public accommodation where nudity occurs
  • Elimination of grants, scholarships, board and trustee designations, representative positions, and affirmative programs for women
  • Eliminating media and all public discourse specific to females
  • Eliminating the legal right of lesbians to congregate publicly
  • Elimination of lesbian-specific organizations and advocacy groups
  • Eliminating media and all public discourse specific to females
  • Removal of the right of journalists to report the sex, and history, of subjects
  • Eliminating the legal right of lesbians, to congregate publicly
  • Elimination of the legal right of women to protection from state-enforced sex-roles (appearance/behavior/thought)

And if you question whether the trans activist movement is at its core is a men’s rights movement then consider the demands that are made of women. (See link) Understanding that trans genders have already all the legal rights of both homosexual and heterosexual people.

It does not matter that you disagree with JK Rowling, it does matter that your organization is displaying no professional integrity as journalists to do your homework; to research, to explore if there is corruption, to intelligently discuss issues that are negatively impacting 50% of the population (women), not to mention gay men and women and the lives of children who are targeted by big pharmaceuticals (a 40-200K a person revenue stream over their lifetime in drugs and surgical procedures.)

Be journalists, please! Set your misogynistic biases aside. Interview the other side, talk to the medical staff that left in droves from Tavistock Medical, the Academic professionals removed from their jobs who have highlighted these issues, those who spoke out against the 17 Autistic girls from one school who were transitioned under 16, the newly formed LGB Alliance that is fighting for Lesbians and Gay rights, teachers and others who work with children. (I have suggested a *list of people you can interview below.)

Thus far on this issue, you’re shown yourselves to be part of a propaganda machine serving at its core big pharma interests and a men rights movement, rather than the professionals with journalistic curiosity and integrity that you’ve appeared to be when covering other issues.
