My Canuck Sisters, Say Goodbye

Today, PM Justin Trudeau announced Bill C16. 

Men who wear dresses and raise their pinky finger while drinking a Starbucks will be considered a protected class. This means if they want in on women’s spaces, nobody will be able to deny them access.

The interesting thing about the bill is the definition of gender and gender identity. The circularity is dumbfounding. The Justice Department explains:

Gender identity is each person’s internal and individual experience of gender. It is their sense of being a woman, a man, both, neither, or anywhere along the gender spectrum. A person’s gender identity may be the same as or different from the gender typically associated with their sex assigned at birth. For some persons, their gender identity is different from the gender typically associated with their sex assigned at birth; this is often described as transgender or simply trans. Gender identity is fundamentally different from a person’s sexual orientation.

Gender expression is how a person publicly presents their gender. This can include behaviour and outward appearance such as dress, hair, make-up, body language and voice. A person’s chosen name and pronoun are also common ways of expressing gender.

There are a variety of individual experiences of gender and of gender expression. The terms “gender identity” and “gender expression” include a wide range of gender diversity.

Internal experiences and sensations are not material realities and cannot be legislated. Gender resides in your psychology. It’s interesting they use the term ‘sense.’ We can’t legislate senses because they are highly inaccurate. Also if ‘there are a variety’ of individual experiences of gender, which ones matter?

Moving onto ‘Gender expression’ we see the words ‘behaviour’ and ‘appearance.’ A person’s behaviour and appearance aren’t connected to a person’s sex.  Sex is independent of gender. You cannot change your clothes in order to change your sex. You are born a sex that is clearly defined and immutable.

Gender is independent of sex. Gender is an invented concept of patriarchy. It’s a hierarchy with ‘femininity’ at the bottom and ‘masculinity’ on top. Gender behaviours and appearances are learned, and it means they can be unlearned. A female infant is not born with a predilection to play with dolls or wear pink. She is taught that this is her ROLE. I know I’m preaching to the choir here but this is mainly for people who don’t understand the differences.

Feminism rejects gender because it teaches females behaviours and attitudes that are detrimental to our freedoms as human beings.

Transactivists are enforcing gender stereotypes ‘masculinity’ and ‘femininity.’ They’re saying if a boy plays with dolls, flicks his long hair, and claims he’s a girl, he really is a girl.

Let’s make a list of feminine stereotypes based on ‘behaviour’ and ‘appearance.’ Feel free to add your own in the comment section.

  • flicking hair
  • wearing eyeliner
  • wearing a dress or skirt
  • swinging hips
  • playing with dolls
  • long painted fingernails/toenails
  • long hair
  • high heels
  • scared of insects and snakes
  • quiet and sensitive
  • emotional
  • submissive

I could go on and on with ‘feminine’ stereotypes but this is not what makes a woman. A woman is an adult human female. If a male does any of the above and claims to be female, Canada will call him a woman. In fact, because gender identity relies on ‘sense’, all a male has to do is claim he’s a woman and he’ll be allowed into any women’s space he wants. Women’s shelters, prisons, organizations, sports teams, events, etc. are now all open any male who ‘senses’ he’s a woman.

Say goodbye to women-only spaces. Say goodbye to privacy. Say goodbye to women’s sports. Say goodbye to safety. Say goodbye to your class protections.

Men want in.

Say goodbye to sisterhood.

For good reading material, here’s a Canadian Human Rights case whereby a man in a dress demanded a Woman-Only Rape Shelter hire him as a rape crisis counsellor. When he was told ‘no’ he threatened the women that ran the shelter and then proceeded to try and bankrupt the shelter with a 12-year court battle that took time and resources away from women who were raped.

Vancouver Rape Relief won the case but it took 12 long years, loss of precious time and money that Canadian women depended on. Women’s services were already being gutted by the Tories.

Our women-only space must be fought for. We can’t just sit on the sidelines and expect it to be handed to us.

Here’s the list of Canadian Senators you can write to about C-16 and explain your concerns. You can write to the Liberals but it’s unlikely they’ll hear you. The Tories might listen. Remember it was the Tories that got C36 (Nordic Model re: prostitution) into law.

  1. It’s still worth contacting liberal politicians to at least make it clear that there isn’t an echo chamber of support, and that people who are opposed to this for reasons other than “Jesus” exist.

  2. Justin Trudeau is an idiot. He’s no feminist though he continues to label himself as one, and brain-dead third wavers just lap it up! I can’t even stand looking at that smug, arrogant, entitled little shit talk with his constant uhs, ums, and errs. This little man-boy doesn’t have any business being in charge of an entire country, but a bunch of potheads decided to go out and vote in droves in the last election, only caring about the potential to legalize weed and ignoring the consequences for electing an idiot as our PM. No other PM in the history of Canada, regardless of political party, can even come close to matching this idiot’s stupidity and his incapability of being a country’s leader. I hear shit about Conservatives all the time, how sexist they are and blah blah blah, yet the Liberals seem to always get a pass with their own sexist BS which happens to be far more blatant and dangerous than any modern Conservative I’ve seen/heard. It’s also dangerous how we call out one but not the other. There really is no political party out there for women, and that is why we continue to be screwed, and now even more so with this fake feminist brainless little rich boy in office who never had a real job in his entire entitled life!

  3. Just wanted to add that I have a Conservative MP, and yes I will be contacting him about this. For all their faults, I’ve actually found that Canadian Tories aren’t so quick to brush off concerns of citizens as arrogant Liberals like Justin Trudeau are. Wait until he establishes that electoral reform he’s planning. We’re never going to get rid of this fucking communist!

  4. This law is void on its face for vagueness. All such laws are. I simply can’t understand how a bunch of lawyers in a legislature could grit their teeth and sit on their hands and pass it.

    • Re vagueness. That is exactly what I keep thinking. I imagine lawyers working on the legislation telling the pols “Look if you can’t define what gender identity is you can’t put it in the law. It’s not an ideological thing on my part. It’s just how the law works. Yes on Twitter you can just add more weird incoherent things like gender expression and gender presentation and that’s considered OK. Newsflash the law isn’t like Twitter.”

      And I imagine the lawyer saying “OK I know you really want to put this gender identity thing in the law. But you can’t tell me what it is. Maybe there’s like some science or sociology papers that would explain what it is. What do you mean there’s no science to it? OK OK, if it’s a social phenomenon then at least sociologists will have studied it. And they will have given a definition. We can go with that. What do you mean they call it transvestitism? Are you actually trying to make it the law in Canada that transvestites are legally women?”

      And that’s the point where somebody in the Ministry of Justice calls the lawyer a transphobe.

  5. I very much expected shit like this to go down once Trudeau was elected. He caters to special interest groups only since they’re the ones who will get him the attention he desires, and transsexuals are the trendiest special interest group at the moment, so it’s no wonder he’ll put their rights over the rights of half the world’s population! The only time he gives a damn about women is when it will benefit him, (and then he’ll take a selfie about his cause of the day and idiots fawn over him).

    The other day Trudeau elbowed a female NDP MP in the chest and only much later offers a half assed apology for his conduct. He had no business manhandling anyone, including grabbing the arm of the male Conservative MP and dragging him away. Even if elbowing the woman was an accident, the manhandling of the male MP is assault, Trudeau had no business putting his hands on him. This kind of aggressive physical contact is something that happens in dictatorships, never in democratic countries like Canada. Justin Trudeau is a dictator and a liar. I wish there was some way we could kick his ass out of Ottawa, but he’ll probably just be replaced by another idiot man. Then again at this point almost anyone would be better than him.

    Then of course his adoring fans, both male and female, are making all sorts of sexist excuses for him, basically making jokes to trivialize the incident, or blaming the NDP woman for blowing things out of proportion even though she herself didn’t say much about it. If you watch the clip, you can clearly see the look of pain on her face when he jabs her, and she left afterwards likely because of both pain and embarrassment. But somehow it’s still her fault according to Liberal idiots, and golden boy Justin’s “feminist” image must be preserved! Liberals are just as misogynistic, if not more so, as Conservatives, the only difference is the Libs get free passes and are never called out on their hypocrisy.

    • I saw the video of Parliament 3 times today. The CBC and other Canadian outlets are going mad over it.

      While his actions were wrong, the NDP and the Tories were also being physical by not allowing the Whip to pass.

      It’s a joke all around the way these assholes are behaving.

      • Re-watching the clip, I saw that one of the NDP guys seemed to want to block the Conservative whip from getting to his seat for some reason or another, but Justin Trudeau’s handling of the situation was still inexcusable and very telling of his true colours. Marching over there like the “dick”tator he is, his body language clearly aggressive as he grabbed the Conservative MP by the arm and dragging him away like a parent would a naughty child. It was obviously very embarrassing for both the male and female MPs who were affected by the physical contact of the incident, and sure the members of all parties weren’t acting very professional about it either, but Trudeau putting his hands on someone in an aggressive manner and as a result causing another person injury should be 100% unacceptable for our PM.

        On a side note, the comments on the subject of the woman who was elbowed are absolutely shameful and disgusting. Whenever there’s a female victim (or the rare aggressor), men will right away lump all women into their comments about this one particular woman. I never see women doing this when it comes to stories about male attackers (and the rare male victims). If a woman dares to even bring up violence caused by men she’s bullied into silence, but men can shit on women all they want without any repercussions. Reading those comments today from all those sexist assholes only renewed my hatred for the male species, and reminds me how every woman has to become a radical feminist to even make a dent in this patriarchal hellhole men have created.

  7. Hello again. I thought I’d leave a link to an article (this seems like a relevant spot) where Miley Cyrus attacks the show ‘Supergirl’ for promoting gender (in her words), even though SHE goes on to promote gender through her “Liberal Feminism”.

    https://www.cinemablend.com/television/1565741/why-miley-cyrus-has-a-problem-with-supergirl

    And anyone who knows who Miley Cyrus is as a former child actress and singer should be well acquainted with her highly sexualized image and her often publicized antics.

    • Thanks Richard> I think Miley is still young and still working it out. It’s the only hope I can come up with for liberal fauxminists. My desire is for them to get older and then start to understand they’ve been promoting male supremacy too.

  8. Thanks for this article! I am fighting hard against Bill C-16 at womanmeanssomething.com. #killbillc17 #womanmeanssomething I have been quoting you many times about the invasion of women’s safe spaces. Although there would be much we would disagree about, I consider you a key ally in fighting institutionalized misognyny which is what bill c16 is.
