Equality Act = Female Erasure by R. Dreher
The following by R. Dreher quotes generously from a piece by Abigail Shrier in the Wall Street Journal, and it echoes what I’ve said on my own blog here the past few years:
Liberals will always prioritize the needs, desires, and safety of all other groups above that of biological women (such as transgender persons or Muslims), so that (Link): biological women will be put into danger, but Liberals do not care about that. (Also: liberals (Link): hate biological white women above all.)
(Link): Equality Act = Female Erasure by R. Dreher
(Link): Abigail Shrier, writing in the Wall Street Journal, says that the Equality Act is an attack on women. The article is paywalled, but here’s a peek:
— start Shrier excerpt —
It has become rightly fashionable to ridicule the idea of “safe spaces,” places where adults can hide and sulk like children avoiding ideas they find threatening.
But women need actual safe spaces—not from intellectual challenge, of course, but from physical threat of harm from men.
As a biological matter, most women are physically outmatched by men. Men are stronger and faster than we are, though we’re better able to tolerate pain and tend to live longer.

Radical Feminist: Transgender Activism Is a ‘Men’s Rights Movement’ by T. O’Neil

January 29, 2019
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.

The Many Harms of Gender Identity Laws: A Mother of a Trans-Identifying Teen Speaks Out by Katherine Cave
(Link): The Many Harms of Gender Identity Laws: A Mother of a Trans-Identifying Teen Speaks Out by Katherine Cave
All people should be protected from harassment and harm, no matter how they identify. But we as a society must be allowed to reasonably act on the basis of sex when medical treatment, privacy, and safety are at stake. If “gender identity” becomes a protected class, women and children are the ones who will suffer most.
The Equality Act (H.R.2282, S.1006) proposes to redefine sex across all federal laws and add “gender identity” to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as a prohibited category of discrimination in public spaces. Assuming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi keeps her promise, the Equality Act will soon be voted on in the House of Representatives.
If it were to pass there, and were ever passed in the Senate and signed into law, it would cause great harm.
“Gender identity” is a term that refers to how people choose to identify themselves based on their feelings. There is no test to determine one’s gender identity; it is simply asserted.
Novel gender identities, such as “transgender” or “nonbinary,” have become shockingly common, especially among (Link): young people.
Unlike protected classes such as race and sex, “gender identity” has no basis in material reality.
There is (Link): no science to prove its existence.

Transgender Bathroom Crime Study Misses The Mark – Transgenderism and Women’s Privacy
(Link): New “Transgender Bathroom Crime” Study Misses The Mark
Interesting comment at the bottom of the page by Miles Coburn:
What gets me is abortion was greenlit in society on the basis of “penumbras of privacy” on the part of women’s rights. And now, actual privacy concerns are being disregarded.
Now that he mentions it, yes: why do so many liberals insist that a woman should have a right to privacy regarding abortion (and not every woman gets one), but a lot of women use public bathrooms and restrooms, and these same liberals believe that biological women don’t deserve privacy? That a biological man’s rights (a man who thinks he is a woman) trumps a woman’s privacy or right to safety?

Sexual Assaults or Harassment Carried Out by CIS Men Taking Advantage of Trans-friendly Bathroom Policies – Collection of News Stories
(and related issues)
I actually have a long list of such examples in a (Link): previous post of mine on the blog, but because some pro-Trans activists on Twitter are so lazy or stupid (they are incapable of finding those links in that post), here is a stand-alone on the topic.
I will continue to amend this post to add new links as I come across them. Should this post become way too long, I may make a part 2.
As an aside, out of my last 2 and a half or so years on Twitter under the “Solo Loner” account, the rudest, most intolerant, hateful, and vitriolic groups I have encountered on Twitter have been militant atheists(*) and pro-Transgender activists.
(*Please note I said “militant” atheists – I’ve run across a few non-militant atheists who were polite and agreeable.)
It doesn’t matter how non-inflammatory or polite my Tweet is in regards to atheism or transgenderism (even if all I am doing is re-tweeting a link without comments of my own), both those groups over-react and will send nasty, hate-filled rants. They are doing more damage to their respective causes than good.
Anyway, here is the collection of links to news stories about pro-Trans laws and regulations making it easier for CIS men to rape or otherwise sexually harass women and girls:
