When it comes to the hierarchy of marginalized people’s, it’s getting downright hard to keep track of who stands/sits/squats in what order. While the top of the marginalized hierarchy is still reserved for blacks, and below that are more minorities as defined by skin colour, after that things are changing at breakneck speed.
For a few years it went – blacks, all other ethnic groups, homosexuals, other sexuals, people with multiple letters attached to their condition, cripples, mentally ill, other. Now though, it’s still blacks, and then other ethnics other than Oriental (they haven’t fought hard enough to get the gibs), transsexuals, lgbltqrnhwlsms’s, and after that no one really cares.
But when it comes to activist vs activist, lately it has been the non-threatening wild west without a hint of a safe space out there. Like what is happening in women’s shelters in Canada, for instance:
Two women are raising concerns about the latest person to move into a Kelowna homeless shelter for women.
“He wants to become a woman, I mean that is his choice but when a man comes into a women’s shelter who still has a penis and genitals he has more rights than we do.” Tracey said.
Tracey is upset that she was made to share a room with a transgender individual, a man transitioning to become a woman.
“They told me, sorry if a person identifies themselves with female, then we have to go with that.” Tracey said.
Another client named Blaine was also staying at the shelter. She recently fled from an abusive relationship and says she’s uncomfortable with a transgender person staying at women’s only facility.
“Some women have had bad experiences with men so they are fleeing men and now we have a man living there,” Blaine said.
The shelter is run by the NOW Canada Society. While the organization declined an interview on the matter, it did issue the following statement to Global News.
“NOW Canada cannot speak to specific cases. It is against the law to discriminate against transgender individuals. NOW Canada and other shelters in Kelowna welcome people without regard to age, race, religion and gender identity.”
And since there is no way to check to see if said person really is transgendered, the facilities – that cannot discriminate against anyone for any reason any time – has to accept the word of possibly-gendered, and not only let them in the shelter, but shack them up with a woman who possibly just had the holy living shit kicked out of them by a man.
Having said that, the first lady in the article has no problem with a man identifying as a woman, she just has trouble when that person is shacked up with her. Naughty, naught, naughty, that’s not being accepting.
As for having more rights, well, it seems the man/woman doesn’t have MORE rights, they have exactly the same rights as any of the other women in a woman’s shelter.
Now, since it is known that every last shelter across Canada has to accept men who identify as women, it leaves actual women with natural vagina’s who have been beaten senseless a choice: do I go to a shelter and take a chance that a man might be put in my room and hope he’s not a rapist or a sexual abuser, or worse – a Conservative?
On Thursday morning, both Blaine and Tracey were asked to leave the shelter for good after speaking to the media and breaking the confidentiality agreement designed to protect the safety of all the clients. But now they say their safety has been compromised after being tossed out on the street.
“Hopefully we will stay safe,” Blaine said.
Despite being kicked out of the shelter, they don’t regret speaking out and fighting for their rights. But they say more needs to be done to help the transgender population too
There was more being done, but because of your prejudice you have put the entire nation at risk. And besides, you can’t have your cake and eat it, too.
So here’s where we stand in Canada – if you are a man and need a place to stay for a few nights and don’t mind identifying as a woman for a bit, head over to your nearest women’s shelter.
This is what happens when liberalism runs wild. Folks are too afraid to call this type of nonsense out. Guys identifying as women and pissing in change rooms where 4 year old girls are. Perfectly normal, don’t judge them. Bigot. So when men start showing up at women’s shelters, don’t be alarmed, that’s just your inner-bigot talking.
BTW – go to the activist vs activist tab at the top of the page and have a look at the great work Fenris has been doing for the last 10 years around here on this subject. He called out the whole act vs act a decade ago. Now everyone is catching up to what he posted a looooong time ago.
Mitchieville – waaaaaaay ahead of the curve.
