Where Are the Feminists?


Anchorage Women's Shelter Sues After Being Forced to House an Eunuch:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) — The Hope Center, a faith-based non-profit that operates as the Downtown Soup Kitchen, has filed a religious freedom lawsuit in federal court against the City of Anchorage, the Anchorage Equal Rights Commission and the commission’s executive director.

It’s the latest development in a case that began in January when the Hope Center twice denied shelter services to a transgender woman, who later filed a discrimination complaint against the shelter.


It's a dude. Not a woman. If you want to be politically correct we can call transgenders Eunuch's, however, we need to stop with this make believe Fascist attacks on speech. The MSM wants you to believe that these are women:

The issue comes on the heels of a somewhat similar, higher-profile case in Colorado in which a cake baker who’d refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple found himself at odds with Colorado’s Equal Rights Commission.

This summer, Jack Phillips prevailed in his case against the Colorado commission before the U.S. Supreme Court. The court found that the commission was hostile to Phillips’ Christian faith during its proceedings. The court did not address whether Phillips had the right to deny his services — only that he hadn’t been treated fairly by the commission, which is tasked with upholding the state’s non-discrimination laws.

They are also challenging the constitutionality of the city’s non-discrimination law, which expanded in 2015 to include sexual orientation and gender as protected classes.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has identified ADF as an ant-LGBT hate group, citing a long and far-reaching history by the organization of trying to deny equal rights in the name of religious freedom

“What they are doing is trying to use their own purported religious beliefs to impose them on others and kick LGBT people out from spaces, from schools, from bakeries and apparently in now in Anchorage, also from shelters,” David Dinielli, Deputy Legal Director for the Southern Poverty Law Center told KTUU. “In our most vulnerable moments they think that their right to hate should trump our right to live. This is not the Alaska way. This is not the Anchorage way.”

On a quick tangent, is anyone pointing out the fact that feminists have constantly talked about male oppression and yet a male was the "Woman of the Year" and now men are competing and winning in female sports? Why aren't feminists talking about males dominating female sports and competitions?


Why aren't feminists standing up for ACTUAL women?
The non-discrimination law passed in 2015 had fewer religious protections in it than originally proposed according to Bill Evans, an attorney and former assembly member who helped craft the ordinance.

“The original ordinance that I proposed tried to balance the competing rights between transgender persons and the religious community,” Evans said. “It tried to establish which rights we’re going to recognize and where that line would be between each individuals’ rights. That was rejected pretty soundly by everybody on the left and on the right.”

Alaska is one of more than a dozen states in which ADF has brought a religious freedom dispute to court.

“The ability to believe what you believe and to practice your religion is one of our core fundamental rights," Casey Reynolds, Communications Director for ACLU Alaska, told KTUU. "But you have to draw the line at which this is harming other people and society, and that is really what this is about.

And that's just the point. Former Governor Bill Walker made a point to strengthen sexual abuse laws in Alaska and yet Anchorage is opening the door (quite actually) in abused women's shelters to men who may [or may not] abuse them some more. When I was a little kid, I ate some wasabi and ever since then, when ever I smell the stuff I get slightly triggered (heh). Now imagine, an abuse or rape victim, they don't wholly trust the other gender again after their experiences and get triggered when they are near.

So, why wouldn't you want to keep the victims separated from the other sex?

The federal lawsuit asks the court to get the commission to end its investigation and back off.

It also challenges the constitutionality of prohibiting the Downtown Soup Kitchen from prohibiting transgender women. According to the shelter’s policies, “guests must be biological females, meaning they were born with, and currently have, only anatomical and genetic characteristics of a woman.“

Yet posing that question to a potential client, is itself a problem, said Dinielli.

“The use of the phrase biological male or female is both without meaning and offensive. People who are transgender are the gender that they are. And there is a lot of thought that that is a result of their biology,” he said.

Regarding homeless shelters, what actually isn't discussed is the need for MALE shelters. There are 30 some shelters in Alaska for women and just ZERO for men (as far as I can tell) despite the fact that 50% of Abuse victims ARE MEN.

“It would not only be dangerous and against common sense, but would violate the Hope Center’s sincerely held religious beliefs to admit biological men into its shelter and allow them to sleep side by side and disrobe next to women, some of whom have been assaulted by men and fear for their safety,” ADF wrote in its federal complaint against the City of Anchorage and the Anchorage Equal Rights Commission.

In order to have common sense, you actually have to have things in COMMON first.
“There is simply no evidence that transgender people are more of a threat to anyone whether that be in bathrooms, locker rooms or homeless shelters. In fact we know transgender people are among the most, if not the most likely to be targeted for abuse, sexual abuse and physical abuse,” Dinielli said.

My empathetic heart does go out to Transgender people and the scientific evidence shows that they become transgender due to childhood abuse and trauma. The statistics for transgenders truly are horrifying:


And as humans we should always respect individuals, however, as a group we know that transgenders have serious mental issues and should not be in the same vicinity as women who are also going through mental trauma and stress due to being abused by men. And we already KNOW that transgender men are raping 10 year old girls and we already know that transgender child rapists are raping more women in female prisons. So, it's disingenuous to claim you care about women and then say that men who pretend to be women are not a threat to women.

I just wonder where the feminists are in all this. Who do they defend? The biological women who have been physically assaulted or the biological male who is pretending to be a woman who has been physically assaulted?

It's a serious question, i'm actually curious for the answer. Because until we answer this fundamental question, we will continue to have society overturned because 0.1% of the population wants special privileges and is OK with harassing 99.9% of us until they get it.

I would love a rebuttal to this that doesn't include the words, "Arthur Martin is sexist, homophobic, transphobic...and a bigot."
