Cathy Brennan’s Twitter account @GIDWatch got suspended Tuesday because Brennan, a radical lesbian feminist, began “naming names” of those who had signed a petition to end the women-only policy of the Michigan Womyn’s Festival. Transgender activists have been attempting to take over feminist events and organizations, claiming that the fact that they were born with penises and XY chromosomes should not prevent them from being accepted as “lesbian feminists” even if they have not undergone surgery.
Cathy Brennan recognizes this as the shady scam it is:
Trust me: Cathy Brennan is not a conservative and hates everything about my patriarchal heteronormative existence. Nevertheless, Brennan is right about this one thing — women don’t have penises or XY chromosomes. While I don’t want to interfere with any person’s liberty to wear dresses, get themselves injected with hormones and undergo extreme surgery, neither do I think that such people have a right to force others to play along with their psychological dramas and cross-gender fetishism. AMERICA IS A FREE COUNTRY. This means that people are free to disagree with you, no matter how much political power you rally in support of your arguments.
If I am free to call Cathy Brennan a fanatical man-hating nutjob, then Cathy Brennan is free to call me . . . well, whatever. Brennan is also free to say that people with penises are not women, and that even surgery won’t turn an XY-chromosome male into a “lesbian.”
The transgender activists are trying to silence their critics. If they can silence a feminist like Cathy Brennan, guess what? Conservative critics of feminism will be next in line for this suppression of freedom.
Ladies and gentlemen, we must defend this dyke: #FreeCathyBrennan!
