“According to documents from the Parole Board of Canada dated Sept. 1, Madilyn Harks, who was formerly known as Matthew Ralf Harks, will face a residency condition upon her statutory release.“ A “woman” convicted of sexually assaulting children will have to reside in a halfway house after completing her sentence due to concerns she is […]
In 2004, after a 25-year estrangement, Susan Faludi’s father reappeared in her life via email. ‘I have had enough of impersonating a macho aggressive man I have never been inside,’ it read, and was signed, ‘Love from your parent, Stefánie.’ The 77-year-old had embarked on a new life as a woman, both a dramatic abruption and the continuation of a biography full of reinvention. He was born as a Hungarian Jew called István Friedman, survived the Holocaust thanks to a talent for imitating Nazis, adopted the name Faludi to show he was ‘100 per cent Hungarian’, and later settled in the US, where he became Stephen Faludi, archetypal ‘American Dad’ and, as a photographer, a master manipulator of images.
In 2014, Stefánie Faludi died, and In the Darkroom is a memoir of the fraught reacquaintance between father and daughter. It’s also a record of Stefánie Faludi’s extraordinary life, and an unsettling interrogation of that modern obsession, identity. ‘Who is the person you “were meant to be”?’ asks Faludi. ‘Is who you are what you make of yourself, the self you fashion into being, or is it determined by your inheritance and all its fateful forces, genetic, familial, ethnic, religious, cultural, historical?’ Primo Levi asked If This Is a Man. Faludi looks at her father Stefánie and wonders, is this a woman? Is this a Jew? Is this a Hungarian? How much of the thing we call a self is truly negotiable?
Faludi is a feminist (she made her reputation with the agenda-setting book Backlash in 1991), and the fault line between feminism and transgender issues is one of the most perilous in current politics. Any deviation from the dogma that ‘transwomen are women full stop’ can incite furious condemnations, and possibly no-platforming and glitterbombing. The subject is beset with cliché and taboo: preferred pronouns must be meticulously and retrospectively observed, the individual is always the arbiter of their own identity, gender identity is not a fetish, and it’s objectifying to focus on surgery.

Katheryn Brown has been locked behind bars for 13 years for the murder of a Charleston woman, with little hope of ever going free. But she says her real prison is the male body she has been trapped in since birth.
The rules Corrections Department must follow
The S.C. Department of Corrections could not point anything specific about managing or treating gender dysphoria in its general health services policies. But officials did point to this budget proviso the agency must adhere to:
The Department of Corrections is prohibited from using state funds or state resources to provide a prisoner in the state prison system sexual reassignment surgery; however, if a person is taking hormonal therapy at the time the person is committed to the Department of Corrections, the department…

Good onya Jake – thank you for standing up for women.
Small business owner Jake Gardner- accused of discriminating against individuals with penises.
Popular Omaha nightclub ‘The Hive’ was the target of a transwoman sidewalk picket over the weekend. At issue was the unisex restroom now under construction at the establishment, which the bar owners intend to accommodate patrons of either sex who no longer “identify with” the restrooms designed for their anatomy. Transwomen and Drag Queens claimed the unisex facility was instead intended to discriminate against individuals with penises.

Matthew Harks, a convicted pedophile living in the Calgary, Alberta area, has legally changed his name to Madilyn (Rebecca) Harks, presumably with the intention of identifying as a woman and obtaining a government-funded sex change. Harks, who is known to befriend families with the intent of harming their children and has sexually assaulted young girls, is currently under long-term supervision in order to prevent further offenses. According to Correctional Service Canada, “Victims are entitled to be informed of offender name changes.”
Conservatives are borrowing “myths” from feminists to undermine transgender bathroom policies, said an article shared by my ex. Trans people just aren’t a threat, the article insisted.
Below, a list of the people who undermine the credibility of that claim. Not radical feminists, not conservatives. These guys, who unfortunately for the trans movement, do exist (and in large numbers).
Due to the oppressively large body of source material to work from, this is a work in progress and will updated from time to time.

‘Richardson, who stabbed prostitute Margaret Bolingbroke, 65, to death in Brighton in 1986 after she mocked his performance as a male kissogram, is due for permanent release this week after 27 years.’
Props to this journo for using male pronouns. Thank you. One hopes that three years after this article was written, doing this is still possible.
This is murderer Matthew Richardson… enjoying a taste of life as a free WOMAN.
The killer, 56, who now goes by the name of Maxine, turns heads with flowing blonde locks and frosted pink lipstick while on weekend release from jail.
Richardson has been taking female hormones while serving life in a men’s jail, and is due to undergo a £45,000 sex-change operation on the NHS.
But the prisoner still speaks with a deep voice and attracted a lot of attention while out and about on Friday.

Transgendered father gets prison time for beating kids because they won’t call him ‘mom’
BY LARRY MCSHANE / DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER / Wednesday, March 23, 2011, 11:49
A transgendered father of four received two years behind bars Wednesday for starving and beating his kids after they refused to call him “mom.”
The 31-year-old South Korean, identified only by his last name Oh, is taking hormone injections once a week and considering sex reassignment surgery, the Yonhap news agency reported.
His ex-girlfriend and mother of three of the children was sentenced to two years in jail on the same charges, the news agency reported. The couple had lived together from 2006 until last year.
“Although the defendants claim that the beating was for educational purpose and legitimate, their conduct cannot be seen as a way of parental guidance,” said Presiding Judge Choi Doo-ho in handing down the sentences.
The Jeonju judge…
