TRANSGENDERISM: AN INTOLERANT GODLESS RELIGION

February 4, 2024

Helen Joyce’s book TRANS: WHEN IDEOLOGY MEETS REALITY is not before is time. She discusses the detail with Henrik Beckhein.

Helen Joyce: Trans is a godless neo-religion. Gender identity, ideology and drag show story hour.

How gender identity conquered the world and what it means for women, children, gay people and the sporting community

‘There are few subjects which need treatment that is at once delicate, thoughtful and brave. Helen Joyce manages all of these things in Trans. Anyone looking to understand this most fraught of issues should start here.’ Douglas Murray, author of The Madness of Crowds

Gender identity ideology is about more than twitter storms and using the right pronouns. In just ten years, laws, company policies, school and university curricula, sport, medical protocols, and the media have been reshaped to privilege self-declared gender identity over biological sex.

People are being shamed and silenced for attempting to understand the consequences of redefining ‘man’ and ‘woman’. While compassion for transgender lives is well-intentioned, it is stifling much-needed inquiry into the significance of our bodies, particularly with regard to women’s rights, fairness in sport, same sex attraction and children’s development.

If we recommit to our liberal values of freedom of belief, freedom of speech and robust debate, we stand a chance of addressing what is at stake.

TRANS: When Ideology Meets Reality Helen Joyce

Cultural Marxism – in brief

Jordan Peterson shows how deadly cultural Marxism is in a few minutes. Yet the western world has let it succeed. As he points out, it is nearly always a small fanatical group that oppresses the majority in the name of equity. How could the man-hating, extreme wokist TEAL party of feminists enter the Australian parliament so easily? Because they and their emasculated male leader conned women and delusional men into voting for them.

Treacherous feminist campaign to eliminate Australian culture and history

Take a look at the portraits below of Brimbank Council’s councillors. Eight of the eleven councillors are women and three are men. In this case it is more accurate to say that eight are feminists and three are emasculated men.

All women who manage to capture even the smallest management position in Australian society are feminist. They are feminists who acquire their position to promote and push forward their feminist/woke agenda. They are remorseless and unforbiding in their various campaigns. Once they secure their position they will hang onto it like a wild cat, scratching and hissing at anyone.

In the case of an elected position, like a municipal councillor, they will capture the position according to democractic rules but once secured will shut down any challenge to their decisions – as Christopher Heathcote illustrates below – in the best dictatorial manner.

Capture of local government is integral to the feminist agenda. If you don’t believe me, inquire who is running your local council and whether they are more concerned with their political ideology than with the tasks local councils were created for. The time for local councils has passed.

People have to realize that feminists don’t give a st… about democracy. It’s all about their feminist/woke ideology – the destruction of patriarchy and the white anglo capitalist order.

Australia’s feminists are guilty of treachery and betrayal that former generations once knew how to handle.

When will Australian men realize that it is not in their interests to give any support at all to the feminist agenda?

Welcome to Country, Goodbye Australia Day

Christopher Heathcote, Quadrant, 16 December 2023

Sunshine and surrounding suburbs in Melbourne’s west will not be observing Australia Day in 2024.  Residents learned this on 12 December at Brimbank Council’s last meeting for 2023.  The council runs a sprawling municipality of over half a million souls, encompassing Deer Park, Sunshine, St Albans, Kealba, Taylors Lakes and historic Keilor.

It was a packed meeting with extra chairs carried in for the many ratepayers who attended. Three security guards were also laid on — one stood either side of the room, and a third (who kept noisily grunting) sat in the back row amid a contingent of elderly Vietnamese. The Mayor, Cr Ranka Rasic, started the meeting by reading out a prepared statement that comments or protests from members of the public would not be tolerated, and anyone who disrupted the meeting would be ejected from the building.

Cr Rasic next called all present to stand, then gave a formal acknowledgment of country, and the meeting got underway.  After accepting the minutes of November’s council meeting it was on to correspondence from ratepayers.  A theme running through letters cited was the seeming reluctance of councillors to actually meet with ratepayers.  One letter about a meeting to ratify the council’s new policy on LGBTQ+ matters pointed out that, while there was a strong turnout of the local LGBTQ+ community, most councillors did not attend.  However, Councillors defensively took the line that its easy enough throughout the year for ratepayers to contact them, so there is no need for ratepayers to meet with or address the council.

The first few letters asked about the independence of councillors.  Cr Rasic speedily dealt with them by referring the correspondent to the relevant regulations, quoting a code number. 

The next letter pointed out that council meetings begin with all standing for an acknowledgement of country, but the National Anthem is neither played nor sung.  Emphasising that the National Anthem is inclusive and acknowledges all Australians, not just one race, the correspondent requested that in future it be sung at the start of all Council Meetings.  Cr Rasic once again referred to the council’s regulations (code number quoted), saying that they prescribe the acknowledgement of country, but not the National Anthem.  No councillor took up the proposal to play or sing the National Anthem in meetings, so the meeting moved on.

Hysteria meets facts about colonialism

The video below is of an attempted debate about British colonialism between historian & broadcaster Rafe Heydel-Mankoo and television personality Narinder Kaur.

While Rafe Heydel-Mankoo reels off basic facts about British colonialism, Narinder Kaur launches into a screaming rant. Kaur drops to the depths of imbecility with the accusation that Heydel-Mankoo ‘sounds quite mad.’

Narinder Kaur is representative of many female commentators – though most are younger than Kaur – whose views are driven solely by emotion, often wild emotion. They have an emotion about a particular issue, and that’s the end of it. Say what you want, it does not matter. Come with the most undisputed facts, it makes no difference. In Australia we have a clone of Kaur – Lidia Thrope. You could not meet a greater crackpot than Thorpe.

There are more than 5,000 comments on this ‘debate’. I have included two below that are representative.

Rafe Heydel-Mankoo has his own channel. I highly recommend it. His fluency and grasp of historical detail is impressive.

Transgender fascists and gutless sports authorities

Today’s newsletter from Senator Claire Chandler catalogues the ideological ferociousness of transgender activists and the floppy backbones of the sports authorities.

If you’re a woman and you’re reading this newsletter, there’s a fair chance you’ve been called a ‘TERF’ by trans activists and their supporters in the media and politics.

It’s their go-to insult for any woman who recognises the reality of biological sex or insists that women should be entitled to single-sex sports, spaces or facilities. Often, the slur is accompanied by threats of violence or misogynistic insults.

Here are the consequences of the celebration by many on the left of online abuse of women, and their rush to cheer on males invading women’s sport.

Male MMA fighter Fallon Fox, who chooses to fight women and once fractured a female athletes skull, is openly bragging about punching ‘TERFs’ (meaning women who recognise the person punching them is male) in the face. Fox describes this as ‘doing my part’.


This is nothing more or less than a male bragging about violence against women, with an implicit threat that there are other activists out there willing to do the same to anyone they label a ‘TERF’.

And if you think that Fox is just an isolated crank, you’d be wrong. Fox has been breathlessly praised as “inspirational” by activist groups and worldwide media outlets.

Most troubling for Australian women might be the Twitter reaction to Fox from an Australian activist who was invited to participate in the development of Sport Australia’s infamous guidelines stating that women’s sport should be based on self-affirmed gender rather than sex.

In response to Fox’s brag about the “three times where I’ve punched a TERF in the face”, the activist who helped set Sport Australia’s position on allowing males into women’s sports said “You legend [heart emoji]” 

It’s no wonder that public support for sporting bodies and governments to protect women’s sport is growing. The more the public sees of males who force their way into women’s sport, the more we see the motivation behind it and how dangerous and unfair it is to female athletes.

The Australian Rugby League commission is the latest Australian sporting body to realise it might be unpopular if they expose TV audiences to male players smashing into females.

Media reports this week revealed that the NRLW has an application for a male to play in the country’s top-level women’s competition. This is an unsurprising development because the NRL’s own policies actively encourage males identifying as women to play women’s competitions.

Apparently, women and girls at their community clubs being forced to take hits from male players wasn’t a reason for the ARL to review their policy, but the prospect of it happening live on TV might be. 

This is not complex – males should not be playing in women’s rugby league competitions at ANY level.

It won’t be good enough for the ARL to minimise their own PR risk by making only elite level competition single-sex, while continuing to force female players at community level to play against males. As my Save Women’s Sport Bill makes clear, all Australian women and girls must be supported, protected and entitled to single-sex sport.

Mean girls club

Last week, Labor Senator Kimberley Kitching died suddenly at fifty-two. As fifty-two is a young age to die these days, one wonders if she had been seriously ill – cancer or some other debilitating illness. But no, it was (as reported so far) a heart attack, one that happens without giving signs. Then the background story came out.

Kitching had been subjected to what she called ‘bullying’ by fellow Labor Party senators she called ‘mean girls’ – alluding to the movie of the same name. The bullying, it has been suggested, put her under such stress that it precipitated a heart attack. Whatever the truth about the origins of the heart attack (the alleged cause at least appears likely), the story is a common one among women: women being bitches to women, told almost exclusively by women.

The bullying bitches in this case are alleged to have been Labor senators Katy Gallagher, Kristina Keneally, and Penny Wong – pictured below. I have given links below that provide the full miserable story which I need not repeat. There is, however, one aspect I want to pause over. It shows just how nasty women can be to other women. It concerns Penny Wong.

Senator Katy Gallagher, left, Senator Kristina Keneally, centre, and Senator Penny Wong, right, in the Senate chamber.

Penny Wong apes a man while showing contempt for men. As much as she tries to dress and maintain the manner and swagger of a man, her hips and bum give her away. She is irrevocably a female. Now this woman who wants to be a man clashed brutally with Kitching. Sharri Markson reported the clash in the The Australian.

“If you had children, you might understand,” Penny Wong shot at Kimberley Kitching during a heated meeting attended by senior Labor politicians in 2019.

The group was debating a Greens Senate motion that supported school students who engaged in “civil disobedience” at climate emergency protests.

During the meeting, Kitching argued the motion was an exercise in virtue signalling and that some parents would prefer their children to be in class during school hours.

Wong’s response to Kitching stung.

“Well, if you had children, you might understand why there is a climate emergency,” Wong reportedly said.

Those close to Kitching say it was particularly hurtful because the painful truth was that Kitching had desperately wanted children, she loved children, but had been unable to have any.

A female colleague once said to me about female colleagues she was having trouble with: ‘Their claws are out for me.’ Wong has given a lucid demonstrating of what my colleague meant. A woman could hardly be more nasty to another woman than Wong was to Kitching. But there is something else about this.

Wong has butched herself up to be the husband in her lesbian relationship, but she can be no father to the child her lesbian partner gave birth to. Pretence does not change reality. Kitching had no children as much as Wong has no children. Wong’s politics is all about pretence determined by her far-left ideology.

THE PELL LYNCH MOB – UNDETERRED AND UNBOWED

 GCWEDIT

The main point that emerges from Ross Fitzgerald’s review of Gerard Henderson’s book, Cardinal Pell, the Media Pile-on and Collective Guilt, is that the cardinal’s antagonists remain immovable in their belief that he is guilty as charged. It does not matter what has been said, how detailed and coherent the analysis of the ‘choirboy’s’ absurd story, the 7-0 verdict of the High Court, and the international consternation at the failure of Australia’s legal system, they remain impervious. You only have to follow Louise Milligan’s twitter account to witness the mob’s delusion and unrestrained hatred of Cardinal Pell. Indeed, I have described Milligan as delusional, but I wonder. Is it delusion or is it pure malice? Is she mad or bad? Gerard Henderson’s highly recommended book provides evidence for one or the other – or perhaps both.

Cardinal George Pell: a man of sorrows

Ross Fitzgerald, The Australian, 8 December 2021

The case of George Pell revealed deep fault lines in Australian society. Some people were convinced of his innocence, but many others wanted him to be guilty.

The trial, retrial, and conviction in December 2018 of Cardinal Pell for historical child sexual abuse of two choirboys at Melbourne’s St Patrick’s Cathedral that allegedly occurred in the mid-1990s, gained international attention.

Sensationally, in April 2020, all seven judges of the High Court of Australia quashed Pell’s conviction.

On April 7, 2020 at 10am, Chief Justice Susan Kiefel quoted from the unanimous judgment: “It is evident that there is a possibility that an innocent person has been convicted because the evidence did not establish guilt to the requisite standard of proof.” That Tuesday morning, as a high-profile convicted pedophile, Cardinal Pell was in solitary confinement at the maximum security Barwon Prison, near Geelong. He had been incarcerated in various prisons for 405 days.

As Gerard Henderson documents in this scrupulously researched book, the High Court’s decision had huge reverberations. Even though the evidence against him was weak, most of Pell’s opponents, in Australia and overseas, retain their unambiguously entrenched positions.

Henderson argues, convincingly, that the Cardinal’s many antagonists continue to deny him the presumption of innocence.
