WASHINGTON, D.C. — Kara Dansky, a feminist lawyer and spokeswoman for Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), spoke against the so-called “Equality Act” at the Heritage Foundation on Monday, denouncing the transgender and gender identity movement as anti-women and anti-lesbian in particular. Her remarks echoed the London Pride March sign declaring that “Transactivism Erases Lesbians.”
“This is a men’s rights movement — this is really a men’s rights movement,” Dansky declared, calling for men to stand up for women and denounce the transgender movement.
…But Kara Dansky spoke out against transgender identity being enshrined in the law. If the “Equality Act” — which she called the “Women’s Erasure Act” — becomes law, “gender identity” will become a protected class in federal civil rights law. This would effectively erase protections for women and girls, the WoLF spokeswoman argued.
“If sex is construed to be gender identity, what that means is that nearly all sex-segregated spaces — colleges, sports, dormitories, and women’s rights in general — will utterly disappear. They will completely disappear,” Dansky declared. “It means effectively that women and girls will no longer exist as a coherent category worthy of civil rights protection, and that is an absolute disaster.”
…The swift cultural embrace of transgender identity struck each of these women by surprise and horrified them. The idea that this movement would be considered “progressive” or friendly to homosexuality is utterly anathema to them.
Beck argued that transgender activists “undermine and erase homosexuals.”
“People are not attracted to genders, yet every lesbian I know has been pressured to accept males into our dating pools and dwindling spaces. In order to validate their gender identity, men who call themselves trans women try to break the ‘cotton ceiling,’ which refers to lesbians’ underwear,” she noted, bitterly. This added further weight to the claim that transgender activism is a “men’s rights movement.”
