Twitter the Trans Dominatrix & the Marxist Feminist

Meghan Murphy is a Canadian feminist who uses - or used - Twitter to debate and provoke people on ideas often related to gender and women’s right. She’s been banned from Twitter.

Why?

Apparently for “misgendering” among other transphobic thought crimes.

The story is - according to Murphy's own tweets - that she's been a critic of a so-called 'dominatrix' called Lisa Kreut who is a biologically male BDSer and who has reportedly led efforts to defund one of Vancouver's longest-running rape crisis centers. But Lisa is trans and Meghan Murphy criticized a trans. Not for necessarily identifying as a trans, but for his/her/zis/their policy ideas and activism.

Who are Murphy and Kreut?

Lisa Kreut was a male up until a few years ago he apparently decided to transition and became trans. His sites at medium depict him as a nerdy kink activist who builds awareness and consensus around how to, uh, have kinky sex. One of his rules now is: sex and drugs and alcohol are a bad idea. A rule he has developed based on her/zis/whatever's experience. Her/his/w/e's profile photograph at medium.com show a pale tense face with glasses worthy of Dustin Hoffman's character Tootsie.

Meghan Murphy loves to take on people like Lisa Kreut. Meghan, young and hip and photogenic with a Marxist father is - surprise, surprise - a radical feminist. Both are seemingly from the greater Vancouver area. One of Murphy's targets seems to be the trans community as well as the porn industry which she condemns with a classic early feminist perspective.

That makes Lisa Kreut who Murphy accuses of working against Canada's rape laws, a perfect target. In an appearance before the Canadian Senate Murphy said, "Treating gender as though it is either internal or a personal choice is dangerous and completely misunderstands how and why women are oppressed under patriarchy as a class of people ... The rights of women and girls are being pushed aside to accommodate a trend."

This has made her the enemy of the sex trade workers and their push to legitimize and even unionize their industry.

Ok, so this a spat between a Marxist feminist and a trans Dominatrix. Why should we care and why should we take sides in such a debate?

But Twitter has clearly chosen sides in what is an appalling appeasement of a crazed movement that is reaching absurd limits on what is offensive and what must be feared and obeyed. Jack Dorsey is as out of touch with reality as Elon Musk and his demands we all start putting chips in our brains to stay ahead of Artificial Intelligence. They both need to unplug and stop what they're doing before they do even more damage to society.

Seriously? You’ve moved from obscurantism into Canadian obscurantism?

Quote from an article linked by someone else here:

The new populist politics is a scam and a lie that exploits anger and fear to gain power. It has no care for the people it supposedly champions and no respect for them. It will deliver nothing—not only because its leaders are almost invariably crooks, but because they have no plans and no plans to make plans.

Legal definition of refugee:

A person who owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country; or who, not having a nationality and being outside the country of his former habitual residence as a result of such events, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to it.

De-nazification terminology used after WW2 in Germany:

Major Offenders (Hauptschuldige) Offenders: Activists, Militants, or Profiteers (Belastete) Lesser offenders (Minderbelastete) fellow traveler (Mitläufer) Exonerated (Entlastete)

Interesting comments on Brat Kavanought:

Knaught’s inability to tell the truth under oath — his combo platter of duplicity, rage-as-avoidance, sobbing-as-evasion and outright lies — makes a mockery of him judging anything more complex or morally fraught than which Doritos flavor goes best with beer. (That, at least, is likely a task he’s trained and qualified to perform.)

It’s also disheartening that K’naught (successfully) used every tactic #metoo has spent the last year unveiling/explaining/derailing.

It was a master class in Sexual Predation for Dummies: moral indignation based on being male (How very dare you take any female witness seriously when a man is ‘splaining?) Using women as human shields (Some of my best friends are women I haven’t assaulted!)

Using the pain felt by the wife/daughter/sister/mother of a predator under examination as some kind of bizarre feminist gotcha (You’re hurting my women by talking about the other women I hurt!)

Creating an in-group/ relatable image of oneself to bond the power brokers to you (I am of the Tribe of Tobin! We are all Tobin now!) A man’s reputation mattering more than any female who managed - all by herself - to be assaulted (My good name is being ruined by credibly alleged bad acts!)
