‘Stephanie Hayden’ Is a Man Named Anthony Halliday, and Must Be Stopped

Not a woman: Anthony Halliday (left) as ‘Stephanie Hayden’ (right). Anthony Halliday changed his name to “Stephanie Hayden” and become a transgender activist in England who “regularly threatens gender identity disbelievers with civil or criminal lawsuits, or attempts to have them ousted from their careers.” Last year, Halliday/“Hayden” sued British comedy writer Graham Linehan for […]

‘Gender,’ Envy and Self-Pity

Ace of Spades summarizes a not-so-surprising discovery: [F]emale-to-male transgenders are discovering that “Male Privilege” actually doesn’t exist, and that the actual privilege belongs to women.
