Feminists Clash with Transgenders at London Pride Parade

BY TYLER O'NEIL JULY 8, 2018

"Transactivism Erases Lesbians!" read a banner that temporarily led the Pride in London march in the heart of Britain's capital.

While Khan was meant to lead the march, he ended up stuck behind the group "Get the L Out," a lesbian organization dedicated to separating lesbian identity from transgender identity. They started demanding that activists take the "T" out of "LGBT," but settled for opting out themselves, demanding the "L" be removed.

According to their website, "Get the L Out is a group of lesbian and feminist individuals and organizations, opposing the increasingly anti-lesbian and misogynistic LGBT movement and the erasure of lesbians."

Yes, "Get the L Out" believes that transgenderism means erasing lesbians, and they've actually got a very good point.

"Get the L Out" opposes "trans politics" because they promote "the social transition of lesbians, encouraging them to present as straight men thus favouring the pretence of heterosexuality over lesbianism — this is nothing more than a form of conversion therapy."

In one move, this lesbian group has tied transgenderism to the most hated bugbear among the gay community — the effort to reverse same-sex attraction and destroy homosexual identity. Transgenderism encourages some lesbians to "identify" as male, and as soon as they "transition" — assuming these "ex"-women still like women — they're suddenly straight!

This isn't the only beef "Get the L Out" has with transgenderism, however. According to the lesbians, the "T" involves promoting "the medical transition of lesbians and pushes harmful drugs (untested hormone blockers, Lupron etc.) as well as unnecessary medical practices on perfectly healthy bodies – these are a form of misogynist medical abuse against lesbians."

Indeed, transgender hormone "treatments" and the more drastic transgender surgery have left people scarred, as they later rejected their cross-sex identity. Max Robinson, a 21-year-old woman who once identified as a man, regrets having taken male hormones and removing her breasts, calling such "treatments" "not a cure at all."

Cross-sex hormones for those who have already gone through puberty carry serious health risks. While the longterm medical and psychological effects remain unknown, testosterone in biological females increases the chance of developing ovarian cysts later in life. Testosterone in biological females will cause irreversible deepening of the voice and augmentation of the clitoris.

Finally, "Get the L Out" charged that transgender activism "promotes the right of heterosexual males who 'identify' as women and lesbians (despite most of them still retaining their male genitals) over the rights of lesbians to choose their sexual partners. This new ‘queer’ LGBT politics thus coerces lesbians to accept the penis as a female organ and promotes heterosexual intercourse between male and female as a form of lesbian sex."


"This is simply a new facet to rape culture and compulsory heterosexuality," the lesbians declared.

Sounds like misguided people looking for a solution to a problem that does not exist in the normal world.

The trouble exists only in their minds. Unfortunately, they are acting on their psychosis and making trouble for the sane people around them.

Well, it seems they will start cannibalizing themselves, so maybe we can just call them all alternatives or some such.

I don't care what sexual orientation someone is, but apparently they do.

There were 2 gay guys that lived next door to my wife and I a few years ago. Nice guys, I partied with them and became good friends. but they did NOT like lesbians much at all nor straight women. It should not surprise anyone that gay men and gay women are not very fond of the opposite sex, but you will never hear many talk about that, because they are supposed to be tolerant Liberals

Liberals, are by and far the most intolerant people around, that is why they always go around calling others intolerant.

I find everyday that what democrats do, is just the opposite of what they say.
