I think its more than obvious there’s been excessive bullshit smearing of Jeremy Corbyn from all sides since he was elected Labour leader, the silliest of which I’ve heard personally came out from the trans community & went something along the lines that because Corbyn might get support from transphobic feminists then he’s going to be transphobic in his approach towards trans issues.
I’m not denying elements of the radical left haven’t aligned themselves with those radical feminists who are transphobic, I’d not deny it as I’ve myself encountered elements of the radical left who’ve been decidedly transphobic towards me being a trans woman, but just because some transphobic morons might support Jeremy Corbyn it doesn’t mean Jeremy Corbyn is any kind of transphobic bigot!
My understanding is even if those radical feminists who are transphobic had supported Jeremy Corbyn, they’ve not done so since Jeremy Corbyn came out publicly in support of decriminalising the sex industry (a position I also support), I do remember a certain Miranda Yardley definitely losing her shit about this. Some would describe Miranda Yardley as the worse of the worse TERF (trans exclusionary radical feminist), well there’s definitely a twist with Miranda in her being so vocally anti trans & that is she’s trans herself, personally I’ve always felt Miranda is rather like hurt little girl & thus lashing out at others & at the same time trying to find comfort by disappearing up her own pseudo-intellectual arsehole.
Personally I kind of think the vilest of vile bigoted TERFs is Sarah Ditum, I mean for fucks sake she went on the BBC’s Newnight program & said anyone born with a penis is a rapist, I might be a lesbian trans women who’s no great fan of men but Jesus fucking Christ that takes the biscuit for the most excessive comment about men being dicks!
I’ve discovered over the years that TERFs are just pseudo-intellectual bigots, but bigots none the less because that’s what being transphobic happens to be, it’s fucking bigotry! The one person I do not think at all to be transphobic bigot is Jeremy Corbyn, do really think I’d fucking well be supporting him as passionately as I do if I thought he was?!?!
Jeremy Corbyn has the best voting record of any MP when it comes to LGBTQ equality, in fact purely on trans issues he has the best voting record because unlike Yvette Cooper & Andy Burnham who stood against the 2015 Labour election campaign he didn’t vote in favour of there being a spousal veto on a trans person having surgery. Okay I’m not married or have any family, so I need not worry about spousal vetoes on me having gender reassignment, but I’m concerned about access to trans healthcare on the NHS & oh look here’s a link to Jeremy Corbyn discussing with Pink News the issue of trans healthcare on the NHS.
Jeremy Corbyn is transphobic my arse! He’s not anything other than full supportive of the trans community so says this transsexual woman!
