Transphobic Lesbians Disrupt London Pride Parade

This is just terrible. Not how our community should be acting.

According to Gay Star News, a group of transphobic lesbians commandeered the lead spot for the Pride Parade in London today, and handed out flyers protesting transgender folks.

A group of lesbian activists blocked the start of the Pride in London march today (7 July) in protest against transgender women. A group of eight women stormed the parade route without accreditation. Then five of them laid down on the road in front of the parade and draped a banner over them.

The banner read: ‘Transactivism erases lesbians’. They then blocked the parade route for about 10 minutes. One of the activists shouted out: ‘A man who says he’s a lesbian is a rapist.’

The group also had a banner that said ‘Lesbian = female homosexual’, as well as flyers with the organization ‘Get the L out’ as the headline.

PinkNews reports that at the end of the parade route, a confrontation erupted between the women and other LGBT attendees, angry that Pride had been led by a group seeking to exclude trans people.

One of the people involved in the confrontation told PinkNews, “They hate trans people, they hate sex workers … they are just as bad as bigots saying gay people go to hell. It’s disgusting, this is a problem with what Pride has become.”

The organizer of the parade, Pride In London, issued this statement:

“Every year, Pride is attended by hundreds of thousands of people who demonstrate that Pride still matters. Given the hot weather and in the interest of the safety for everyone attending today’s event, the parade group was allowed to move ahead.

“We do not condone their approach and message and hope the actions of a very small number people does not overshadow the messages of the 30,000 people marching today.”

Laverne Cox Schools Lil Duval After Saying He’d Kill A Trans Woman If They Slept With Him

Lil Duvall

On Friday’s episode of Breakfast Club, a radio show that loves to bill itself as “The World’s Most Dangerous Morning Show,” the hosts egged on a transphobic rant from guest and minor comedian, Lil Duval.

Host DJ Envy asked the comic what would be his reaction if he found out he’d slept with a trans woman. His response? “This might sound messed up and I don’t care: she’s dying.”

One of the hosts pressed Duval saying you can’t say you’ll kill trans women. But, Duval deflected: “I didn’t say I was gonna kill transgenders. I said if one did that to me, and they didn’t tell me, I’ma be so mad I’d probably kill them.”

Eventually, Duval’s defense to his indefensible comments was, “I can say what I want and do what I want, and people understand where I’m coming from. They understand I’m not coming from a place of malice. They know I’m just speaking my mind.”

According to reports, at least 15 transgender people have been murdered in 2017. So far.

Last year, there were 22 violent deaths recorded by the Human Rights Campaign.

Trans actress and activist Laverne Cox responded to the ignorance with a lengthy Twitter message:

“After taking several deep breaths I just got teary thinking about all my sisters experiencing violence, beaten, raped, murdered and some … I think what’s also so upsetting for me is @janetmock was on that show last week with so much love brilliance and trans 101 education and A week later this happens. Some folks think it’s ok to joke about wanting to kill us. We have free speech but that speech has consequences and trans folks are Experiencing the negative consequences with our lives. It hurts my spirit cause this isn’t funny. Our lives matter. Trans murder isn’t a joke. I think the issue is when this kind of violence is expressed publicly and goes unchallenged. This is why I am speaking up to challenge It.”

Janet Mock also chimed in:

At the end of the day, though, Lil Duvall remained non-plussed about the whole incident:

Big Brother 19 Contestant Cody Nickson: “I Could Give A Sh*t” About Fu*king Trannies

Cody Nickson

Construction sales rep and Marine veteran houseguest Cody Nickson, currently competing on CBS’ “Big Brother 19,” has offended some fans of the show with transphobic comments.

Nickson was discussing tucking, for some reason, with houseguest, Jessica Graf.

Nickson: “How does one tape his di*k down?”

Graf: “I don’t know. Isn’t that at thing?”

Nickson: “For trannies, I guess.”

Graf immediately covered his mouth, but Nickson continued: “Do you really think I could give a sh*t that like .0000001 percent of the population is fu*k*ng trannies. I don’t give a fu*k. I promise you they’re not expecting me to really fu*king sympathize with their psychological cause.”

Graf broached the subject with Nickson again later while talking with other houseguests.

Graf: “What you said this morning wasn’t that great either.”

Nickson: “What? Tranny? I don’t give a sh*t. Do you really think they’re going to come at a Marine Crops infantryman for fu*king saying the word tranny?”

In the past, contestants have, in fact, lost jobs once they leave the Big Brother house for offensive or controversial statements made on the reality game show.

Season 17 contestant, and first transgender competitor on the show, Audrey Middleton, warned that Nickson should be prepared to be unemployed after BB due to his transphobic remarks.
