An Amazing Interview With Julie Bindel

META magazine's interview with Julie Bindel on July 7th, 2012.

Frankly I am surprised. Of course we differ greatly on some topics such as delaying puberty in adolescents. I also think she played the victim card then went and blew up a whole lot of good will with her description of trans people who called her on her transphobia in 2008 and again in 2011 when she was nominated for all things, the Stonewall Diversity Award...but as she said, those are years past.

Some will say she was simply on her best behaviour during the interview adapting to the changing social norms and I could see a cauldron of anger swirling just below the surface of this woman. But that being said, I would say I am in agreement with Bindle on a number of topics.

We need to take a pluralistic view, accept that others disagree and find common ground.

RadFems monolithic view of men bad, woman good is ridiculous but somehow, just somehow we need to make peace with Radfems. Lord knows I have tried and failed, maybe someone else would be successful.

The only ones who will benefit directly from the Trans Radfem conflict are those who hate us and make no differentiation between cisgender and transsexuals, and believe it or not, some from within our own community who find satisfaction in the fanning the flame of the current conflagration.

Like Julie said, we journalists have the potential to greatly influence social understandings, and the winners are the ones who rise to the top.


London's Calling (AGAIN?): Transphobic Julie Bindel on Shortlist For a Diversity Award!

In 2008 I wrote the article London Calling : Transphobic Julie Bindel Nominated Writer of the year by Stonewall UK about this rad-fem transphobic woman who unbelievably was up for a journalistic award by London's gay advocacy group "Stonewall".

She did not receive that award due to the transgender and queer outrage. Stonewall decided at the last moment to avoid the negativity and condemnation that undoubtedly would have followed.

Now just a few years latter Julie Bindel is up for another award this one unbelievably is for diversity! !!OF ALL THINGS!!

Once again queers and trans people will be forced to take to the streets but this time Bindel has made another enemy, Muslim people.

Protest Julie Bindel and Reparative Therapist RCP Conference!

**UPDATE! The conference has been Cancelled! Trans advocacy WORKS!! Note to Julie Bindel, where ever you are scheduled to speak as an authority on transsexualism I will be there like a thorn in your transphobic side.***

A planned conference of the most horrific anti transgender 'experts' has got the London Transgender community up in arms!

Hosting the conference the Transcultural Special Interest Group a component of the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Mental Health Special Interest Group, Royal College of Psychiatrists which offers this mission statement:
"TSIG supports policy and practise to improve the care of socially excluded and marginalised groups where culture is influential in the expression and management of mental distress. We also need to continue work in teaching, training and curriculum development to ensure that cultural competency remains an essential component in the assessment of the clinical competencies of all psychiatrists"
The speakers: Particularly distressing is the inclusion the vehemently anti transgender feminist Julie Bindel who's tirades have denigrated transgender social standing in the UK and worldwide. Conference presenter Julie Bindel view of transexuality:
"I don't have a problem with men disposing of their genitals, but it does not make them women, in the same way that shoving a bit of vacuum hose down your 501s does not make you a man.
Equally distressing is the inclusion of reparative therapist Dr Az Hakeem who published view is:
“The experience of many psychiatrists, psychoanalysts and psychotherapists working with transsexual patients is that they are individuals who, for complex reasons, need to escape from an intolerable psychological reality into a more comfortable fantasy. By attempting to live as a member of the opposite sex, they try to avoid internal conflict, which may otherwise prove to be too distressing.”
Join the protest!!! Email the Royal College of Psychiatrists to be true to there mission statement!; Then join the planned Protest! And on Facebook


Julie Bindel: The transmisogynist that Kills

Julie Bindel, a British feminist is the most heinous of transmisogynistic, transphobic woman to ever darken the pages of LGBT European culture. Bindel now wants to play the victim card having been uninvited from many of her former platforms because the protests of the truly victimized have finally begun to reach he ears of compassionate allies in the British LGBT community.

I have extremly liberal Gay and straight friends in Britain who make me recoil with their paternalistic comments when I post a feminist view defending the right of transgender woman to a fair and just life.

British men, it seems, feel I need their approval to be a outspoken and being a feminist transgender woman? Not acceptable. It's as if!

The differences in our cultures expectations of the treatment of transgender people is a cavernous divide, the Americans having crossed that bridge with UNITED ENDA and the British languishing with internal hemorrhaging, thanks to Julie Bindel's knife.

Julie Bindel has done the worst damage that anyone could have possibly done to transgender people and feminism as a whole. She has polarized gays and lesbians into different camps, having been nominated for a award by stonewall, the British Gay and lesbian advocacy organization.

Julie Bindel is the transmisogynist that kills.

Protest her? YES! Silence her like she has done for decades to countless helpless transgender victims? YES! Do I care if she feels like a victim for it? NO.

Silence Bindel.


Julie Bindel Clearing House

"This blog is for people to add links to quotes from Julie Bindel about transgender issues"
Transgender and queer folk in the UK have been experiencing transphobia tenfold what we endure in the states. Our Nemesis Joe Solmonse masks his transphobia behind the good intentions of the majority of HRC members.
The UK's major lesbian and gay advocacy group, Stonewall makes no such effort. They honor openly transphobic people such as Julie Bindel.
In UNITY we will overcome.


Queer UK protests Stonewall's Julie Bindel at Victoria and Albert Museum

By kelli Busey
Nov. o7, 2008

The Awards ceremony in which unapoligetic transphobic Julie Bindel was awarded the writer of the year award from the UK's inappropriately named "Stonewall" group was protested by a large group of mainly young and disenfranchised Transgender, Queer and Allies.

London as reported by Loz Flowers

"Stonewall, despite naming itself after an event in which trannies took part, has never made any bones about being an organisation that does not represent transsexual people. However, for it's 2008 awards it decided to accept a nomination for best journalist for Julie Bindel, a writer with a history of transphobic opinions and writing.

So a group of about 150 pissed-off transsexual people and their allies held a fun and trouble-free protest outside of the Stonewall Awards at the Victoria and Albert Museum on the evening of the 6th of November 2008 to remind them of what they seemed keen to forget or ignore."
