The Alphabet Activists Implode – Now That’s Good News

Oct 24, 2019

The implosion of the radical sexual suicide bombers continues – good!

In 1858 Abraham Lincoln reminded the American people that “a house divided against itself cannot stand”. He had of course simply borrowed the words of Jesus spoken two millennia ago: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand” (Matthew 12:25).

And that is good news when the groups in question are hostile to all that is of value, including marriage and family, the wellbeing of children, and a stable and flourishing society. The radical alphabet activists are leading the way in this regard.

Thus when they start to splinter, implode and turn on themselves, that in my books is a good thing. And this has been hotting up over the past few years, especially with the trans activists pushing their own bizarre agenda. It has resulted in plenty of angst and division, with lesbians, trans activists, feminists and others often at each other’s throats.

Their house certainly is divided, and it is getting all rather wobbly in the process. Consider the latest development in all this. It seems that a major rainbow activist group is now being torn apart, and a new group is being formed to fight back against trans madness. Here is how one English newspaper puts it:

Europe’s biggest LGBT rights organisation has split after being accused of promoting a “trans agenda” at the expense of gay and lesbian rights. Stonewall is known for campaigning for the equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people across Britain. The charity’s mission statement says that it aims “to create inclusive and accepting cultures”. 

However, following a meeting on Tuesday night – and amid an ongoing row about trans inclusion – the charity has divided and forged a splinter group. Announcing themselves as the LGB Alliance, the group, formed of “influential lesbians, gay men and bisexuals” met in central London last night and forged the new organisation in a bid to “counteract the confusion between sex and gender which is now widespread in the public sector and elsewhere’.

Simon Fanshawe, who co-founded Stonewall in 1989, was among those speaking at the event last night in central London. In a press release announcing the new group, which will be formally launched in January, the LGB Alliance said that its participants included former employees and supporters of the lobby group Stonewall, as well as doctors, psychiatrists, academics and lawyers with expertise in child safeguarding. It added that all members had agreed a foundation statement which prioritised biological sex over gender theories which they regard as ‘pseudo-scientific and dangerous’.

Bev Jackson, a co-founder of the Gay Liberation Front, said: ‘LGB people like us have been writing to Stonewall for over a year – trying to set up a dialogue with them. It’s about the fact that they have chosen to prioritise trans people and have almost abandoned their original mission: protecting people who are same-sex attracted. Sadly, we do still need protection. Young lesbians in particular are suffering; experiencing huge social pressure to transition to male if they do not conform to traditional gender stereotypes.’

The members of the new Alliance agreed, as part of a 20-point position statement, that: homosexuality is same-sex (not same-gender) attraction; lesbians are biological women who are attracted to other biological women; sex is not ‘assigned’ at birth but observed and it is not transphobic for lesbians to have their own spaces and institutions which exclude male-bodied people. www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/10/23/stonewall-splits-accused-promoting-trans-agenda-expense-gay/

This is not just some media beat-up however, with the homosexual press also covering the story. This is how one such site has covered the split:

A new “LGB Alliance” group that launched in London last night is being slammed online by the people it claims to represent. In a tweet, lawyer Allison Bailey of Garden Court Chambers said, “This is an historic moment for the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual movement. *LGB Alliance* launched in London tonight, and we mean business. Spread the word, gender extremism is about to meet its match.”

However, lesbian, gay and bisexual people were quick to call out the new group – blasting it for being “transphobic”, “disgusting” and “vile”. Many of them also pointed out that many members of the new group are straight, as are a lot of the people backing it online. Several lesbians and bisexual women told the new “LGB Alliance” that “you do not speak for me”. www.pinknews.co.uk/2019/10/23/lgb-alliance-facing-backlash-from-lesbians-gays-bisexuals/

You can click on the link to see the heated exchanges taking place. And all this is not just an overnight development. Discussions about this had been underway for a while now. Consider one article on this from last month:

Simon Fanshawe, co-founder of the gay rights lobby group Stonewall, has revealed possible plans to form a breakaway group. The LGB Alliance was announced in a letter to The Sunday Times, signed by 22 lesbian and gay rights advocates:

“Last October a group of LGB rights supporters asked Stonewall to ‘commit to fostering an atmosphere of respectful debate rather than demonizing as transphobic those who wish to discuss, or dissent from, Stonewall’s transgender policies. Since then, Stonewall has refused repeated requests to enter into any such dialogue. The government continues to treat Stonewall as if it represented the views of progressive thinking in general, and specifically LGB opinion. It does not. We believe it has made mistakes in its approach that undermine women’s sex-based rights and protections.”

This split is a response to Stonewall’s focus on gender replacing acknowledgment of sex. Fanshawe commented that “you can’t self-ID out of female genital mutilation. Your access to abortion and getting pregnant — that happens because you are a woman.” Stonewall’s failure to advocate for women means that one letter in LGBT is invariably sidelined: Lesbians.

This is a key factor behind Fanshawe’s intention to form the LGB Alliance: “If Stonewall can’t defend lesbians then we will have to look at setting up an organization that will.” Beatrix Campbell, author and activist, signed the letter because she believes that Stonewall has stopped representing lesbian or gay interests:

“I’m a lesbian because I love and desire women – but gay desire seems to have evaporated from Stonewall propaganda. Lesbians are, once again, politically homeless. I passionately support Simon Fanshawe and the Stonewall founders’ challenge to its current approach – Stonewall has refused to engage in any debate; its position no longer seems to have anything to do with being gay.”

Stonewall’s main focus has shifted towards gender identity, which they define as “A person’s innate sense of their own gender, whether male, female or something else (see non-binary below), which may or may not correspond to the sex assigned at birth.” They describe homosexuality as “romantic and/or sexual orientation towards someone of the same gender.” This approach erases same-sex attraction and protections. The LGB Alliance challenges Stonewall’s denial of lesbian and gay sexuality. www.afterellen.com/general-news/572679-lgb-alliance-to-form-as-stonewall-cant-defend-lesbians#oQPhkzwf38cZFI5g.99

Of course all this is not just about radical hyper-left activist groups at each other’s throats. It is certainly that, but it is much more. What this is really all about are lunatic ideologies and ideologues hitting up against the brick wall of reality. Eventually looney tune militancy has to square off against the real world – and when it does, reality always wins.

It does zero good to identify as this or that and think you can pull it off. If I identify as a free-floating object with no gravitational pull, that may sound really nifty. But just wait till I try to put this to the test. If I climb a tall tree and take a step into mid-air, all my wishful thinking and identifying will do me zippo good – the law of gravity WILL take over and I will plummet straight to the ground.

Gravity wins – and I lose. That is always how it goes. It does not matter how many males identify as females. That changes absolutely nothing. They can wear all the dresses they like, but reality rules, and always will. As Australian conservative commentator Sydney Watson put it:

PEOPLE don’t get periods. Women do. PEOPLE don’t get pregnant. Women do. PEOPLE don’t breastfeed. Women do. Being FEMALE is not a “feeling”. It isn’t frilly dresses, high heels, long hair & makeup. I’m sick of seeing my sex erased & trivialized to accommodate everyone else.

And it is not just women who are being erased with the sexual suicide bombers. Men and children are also disappearing. The trans madness is an attempt to obliterate people, society, biology and reality. But as stated, at the end of the day reality will always be victorious.

In the meantime, all these nutjob activists will keep on suffering further meltdowns, infighting and division. Good. Let the implosions continue.

  • Well said, as per usual.

  • This ‘correction’ does not surprise – we give the devil too much credit for organising opposition to the KOG. There is an inbuilt ‘perversity’ in much that is promoted by the alphabet brigades and this seed will inevitably sprout the diversity they don’t want … but all things work together for good to those who love the Lord ….

  • Normally I would be very careful about giving gays any tick of approval for their behavior, but in this one at least they are real, and right, if not righteous.
    There is a trend I think I can see, and it is that more and more groups are being discriminatory in the right way, and getting away with it.
    This is one; the trans are not acceptable to LGB.
    Another; John Setka is nor acceptable to the Labor Party.
    There are no doubt more.
    There is hope perhaps yet for us, who don’t want unbelievers in our pulpits, or in our classrooms.

  • As a women grown up as a girl, and developed as a teen I delight in hearing how this Australian conservative commentator Sydney Watson put it:
    “PEOPLE don’t get periods. Women do. PEOPLE don’t get pregnant. Women do. PEOPLE don’t breastfeed. Women do. Being FEMALE is not a “feeling”. It isn’t frilly dresses, high heels, long hair & makeup. I’m sick of seeing my sex erased & trivialized to accommodate everyone else.”

    And as you commented too Bill: “not just women who are being erased with the sexual suicide bombers…”

    Lost identity of one subgroup surely does not have the right to obliterate all others who are secure in their identity.

  • For some reason I see a similarity between this ridiculous situation and the events of 2 Chronicles 20:13-24. Let’s face it – evil contains within it the capacity for self-destruction! In fact that is the inevitable result of a collision between God’s holiness and righteousness and those who deliberately flout his commands.

  • Slightly good news that Canada, after a substantial legal battle, has, at least for the time being, ruled that women don’t have to wax male scrota but, unfortunately, the nation has not yet woken up to the point of realizing women don’t actually have these. (Pretty stupid eh?)

    https://www.christianpost.com/news/salons-dont-have-to-wax-scrotum-of-male-who-claims-to-be-female-canadian-court-rules.html

    Let’s hope decent people in this nation do not have to be put to the cost and trouble of having to fight absurd cases like this in court because, fairly obviously, the range of possible delusions in this world is massive. Cases like these, at best, only serve to attack good people and take money from decent people and put it into the hands of corrupt lawyers. They certainly do nothing to help the deluded.

    Of course if the Democrats “Equality Act” in the U.S. gets up there will be a landslide of these sorts of cases there. Perhaps this is why lawyers think of these things.

  • Thanks Michael. Yes I wrote about that episode in my earlier trans article:

    https://billmuehlenberg.com/2019/10/23/transanity-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly/

  • Great article Bill ,- and this is a great development , – because the Leftist insane illogical ideology that has been let run rampant for the last 50 years is now entering a Gigantic reality problem phase ,- that is ,- That insanity cant function in the real world,- and it is all starting to implode from within their own LBGTIQXYZ Organisations,-and by their own LBGTIQXYZ hands , -and that is great news . Keep up the good work Bill.

  • Here in Texas, the case of a 7 year old boy being forced to “transition” by his mental mommy has finally got some attention for the criminally sick practice of giving hormone blockers and and cross hormones to minors.

    The jury found in favor of the mother having complete custody, but there was such a public uproar that the judge voided the jury verdict and gave 50/50 joint custody to each of the parents. The mother cannot do any medical action without the approval of the father, and he is totally against “transition” for his boy.

    There is now talk of a long-overdue law that would make it criminal to give hormone blockers, cross hormones, or perform surgery on minor.

    I wrote my state rep about this last February, when the Texas legislature is in session (it only meets once every other year and stays in session for as many months as it takes). In the letter I urged passage of a bill modeled on the Youth Health Protection Act, which a legislator was trying to pass in Illinois (the trans lobby, who want children to be maimed and sterilized successfully fought it).

    If the Texas legislature hesitates for one minute to pass this bill next time they meet in 2021, and are dissuaded by threats of business boycotts or any other reason, then they are nothing but worthless, craven cowards, and our society will not be worth preserving.
