About Those Legal Threats Children

Update: After this was published Diana Patton sent me yet another legal threat, this time claiming their “background is in computer forensics, and cyber crime” and that their skills will be used against me. Sorry, I refuse to believe that Patton is telling the truth about their background.

Yet again yesterday, I received another nasty online communication threatening legal action. This time from trans woman Diana Patton. As usual, and as has happened many times before over the past year, I was accused of outing trans people, publishing their information without permission from them, and of putting them and the rest of the trans community at risk by doing so.

Yeah, these dumb-asses really think they speak for the trans community, like they’re some type of police force for it.

The reason I readily call these type folks dumb-asses is because what they’re referring to is me publishing web links to news articles about them.

That’s it. Just links to news articles they’ve appeared in. That’s my big crime that’s gonna trigger these legal actions; publishing links to news articles that I’ve read and studied about transgenderism.

I merely read news stories about trans people sent to me by Google via email from Google alerts for keywords such as “transgender,” or read transgender news stories in my personalized Google news feed about these people. All of this is readily available to anyone on the Internet via Google Alerts and search engines. The stuff that I thought was worth other people reading or learning as well, I then consolidated my transgender.news website. Which is a mirror for my Transgender Wiki website.

For doing this news aggregation and trans history preservation I’m apparently guilty of putting trans people who willingly gave interviews to the media at risk. These folks are clearly mentally ill beyond things like gender dysphoria, because they have some delusional belief that they actually get to control where information gets published on the Internet. Publishing web links isn’t a copyright violation.

“Simmons sued the publications in May over a story alleging that he was in the process of becoming a woman. While affirming his support for trans people, Simmons has vehemently rejected the claim.”

“But in his tentative ruling, Judge Gregory Keosian ruled that being misidentified as transgender does not inherently expose someone to “hatred, contempt, ridicule or obloquy,” and therefore does not rise to the level of defamation.“[Citation]

Somehow these folks that endlessly take a turn at harassing me about my news aggregation websites — which I do strictly as a learning endeavor and to keep my mind sharp as I age and enter my senior years — don’t seem to understand is that I really do understand their real motivations for doing this.

It’s really not about the websites: it’s about me. They don’t like me and what I advocate.

The websites are just echoing information that’s easily available at the source and allowed to be rebroadcasted. That same information is readily available in search engines. This is really about not liking me and using the websites as a mechanism to harass me.

But if gossip websites misidentifying Richard Simmons as trans in the media “does not inherently expose someone to “hatred, contempt, ridicule or obloquy,” and therefore does not rise to the level of defamation,” then anything I’m doing by merely consolidating news links certainly isn’t going to rise to the level of being harmful or illegal.

For around a year now, these types folks have been actually threatening me with legal action for “publishing web links.”

One mother of a trans boy even said she was going to get the ACLU to sue me. Yes, Jennifer Halpaus actually threatened to have my website taken down by the ACLU.

“Milo Yiannopoulos trades on outrage. He is a professional provocateur who has turned insulting different groups of people into a specialty.”

He has claimed that the very existence of transgender people is the product of delusional thinking. He has compared Black Lives Matter activists to the KKK. And he has fostered both anti-Muslim bias and disdain for women in one breath, characterizing abortion as “so clearly bad for women’s health that it falls second only to Islam.”[Citation]

Yeah, that ACLU. The ACLU that’s representing Milo Yiannopoulos. The ACLU representing the mean guy who claims trans kids like the one that belongs to Halpaus are the “product of delusional thinking.”

Sigh. My blocked list of annoying people continues to grow. And I’m perfectly willing to go to court over my right to republish web links and create categories for them.

The Trannies That Keep Erasing The Non-Binary Transgender Population

“This is yet another challenge by the White House to deny equality to transgender service men and women. The hypocrisy is startling.”[Citation]

The exclusionary comment from TLDEF board co-chair of Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund Alaina Kupec.

“The move to purge transgender military personnel is dishonorable to the thousands of transgender men and women who are serving our country with courage and who are integral parts of our armed services.”[Citation]

The exclusionary comment from Lambda attorney Sasha Buchert.

More than one-third of the survey respondents identified themselves as “non-binary” — a term used to describe people whose gender identity is not exclusively male or female.“[Citation]

As a highly decorated veteran and non-binary transgender Army retiree, I’m pretty disgusted that two nonprofit, legal aid organizations, who bill themselves as trans advocacy organizations, would use language that excludes a full third of the transgender community.

I’ll say it again: we don’t have transgender military service. We have transsexual military service that was designed and implemented by transsexuals.

Sue Fulton And Sparta: Telling Lies For The Cause

“Transgender people are just as deployable as other service members,” Sue Fulton, former president of the LGBT military organization Sparta, told the Journal.”

“Other service members may undergo procedures when they are at home base, just as other service members schedule shoulder surgery or gall bladder surgery,” she said, adding that there were no “ongoing treatments” for transgender individuals that would cause them to be nondeployable.“[Citation]

Sorry Sue, I’m willing to make a liar out of you and prove that you don’t even know what you’re talking about. The reporters may not be willing call you out on your garbage, but I will.

“Macaluso, 27, who lives in Justin, was worried about her ability to serve before the tweets because she had been denied a medical waiver for deployment in March to Kuwait by U.S. Central Command medical personnel. U.S. Central Command is a governing body in the military established in January 1983 for forces deploying to parts of Europe, Africa, Asia and elsewhere.”

“She said U.S. Central Command denied her medical waiver because she had not yet legally changed her gender marker from male to female on identifying documents and because of her hormone replacement therapy, which began in May 2016, she was “not stable.”[Citation]

Hormones treatments for transsexuals are a lifelong thing. Clearly this person can’t deploy because of “unstable hormones.”

Transgender Military Ban: It’s Not The Money Stupid

Banning Transgender Troops Could Cost U.S.$960 Million, Report Says“[Citation]

Transgender Policy Could Cost Military Billions Over Ten Years“[Citation]

The more time you spend studying the headlines and the media’s attempts to affect social change, the more that you realize how much of what they write is garbage. It’s quite clear that much of what they do is intended solely for the purpose of changing the public’s opinion on an issue, not reporting the news in an unbiased way.

For example, different elements of the media and other organizations now want us all to believe that the same Pentagon who they warned us about for their buying of $540 toilet seats now suddenly cares about money as the deciding factor in transgender military service.

News flash: The military doesn’t care about money. Speaking as someone who used to order $100,000 replacement transmissions for armored vehicles all day long, I know this to be true. The military only cares about readiness and being quickly able to deploy. What that costs is irrelevant. Because military leaders get fired for not being ready. They don’t get fired for spending too much money.

The ability of transgender members to deploy and fight will ultimately be the most deciding factor in whether or not we continue to serve. Or the only factor.”

Activity restrictions during 3 months after sex reassignment surgery

“To ensure your complete healing, it is necessary to avoid any activities which may cause wound tear or wound complication. The example activities which are strictly forbidden during 3 month recovery from SRS are as follows:”

“1. Stretch or spread the labia in order to clean or see or take a photo.”

“2. Sexual intercourse”

“3. Strenuous activities or any activities which may put pressure against the genital area, for example, hiking uphill, horseback riding, bicycling or motorcycle riding.”

“4. Play sports or do exercises which are susceptible to acute overstretching of the genital area include yoga, aerobic dancing, pilates.”[Citation]

What activists and mouthpieces for the media fail to understand is that they are speaking about a subject on which they’re basically entirely ignorant. Because if any of them had actually served a day in their lives, they would know that the military freaks out when a soldier goes on leave for thirty days. That’s right, military leaders worry if a soldier will come back in shape enough to still pass a physical fitness test after being off duty for a month.

Why?

Because that would make the soldier unfit for duty. It interferes with their ability to deploy. It’s grounds for getting put out and having your career ended.

The media and activists should ask: what level of worry does doing nothing for 90 days after SRS cause these same leaders?

“Today, the U.S. military is largely gone from Iraq and is preparing to leave not just Afghanistan but the perhaps the business of Middle Eastern ground wars entirely. But getting the MRAPs out of the land-locked Afghan war zone is difficult and expensive. So, six years after launching a program that’s cost almost $50 billion in total and about $1 million per vehicle, the United States military is quietly chopping up as many as 2,000 MRAPs into scrap metal, The Washington Post’s Ernesto Londoño reports.”[Citation]

As I’ve said before, we’ve allowed the surgery kings and queens to destroy transgender military service for an entire community of which they are only a part. And anyone who thinks this is about money, well, they’re just stupid.

Jamie Shupe Supported Washington State Initiative 1552 For Just Want Privacy: True Or False?

Answer: Partially True.

The truth is I agreed to appear on The Todd Herman Show on behalf of Kaeley Triller Haver. And I did so because I think women (defined as biological females) and children are the real victims in the bathroom war. Another reason I appeared on the show is because I think instead of just calling these folks bigots like much of our community does, I think we should at all times have an open and respectful dialogue with those that disagree on our ideologies. Being hopelessly deadlocked doesn’t work for juries, Congress, or LGBT politics. We all need to work together to find workable compromises to coexist and get along.

One of the things I recall Todd saying during his radio show was that he thought transgender people were pawns in the bathroom war. I don’t agree with that statement. I think women and children are the real pawns in the bathroom war. Because even if anything like 1552 passes it still doesn’t really gain women or children anything much beyond where they are now, or solve their existing problem.

For the binary sex identifying members of the transgender community the bathroom war is a battle over their right to identify as males and females. It’s affirmation for them. For the religious elements, especially the evangelical side of the house, and many of the conservatives, the bathroom war is likewise a battle over identity. These groups are trying to control who can be defined as males and females. So it’s part religious war and part bathroom war.

Nothing about this battle over bathrooms actually solves the problem for women and children of men routinely waltzing into their private spaces and either filming or sexually assaulting them. This is why I describe women and children as the pawns of the bathroom war.

“Relying on state education records, supplemented by federal crime data, a yearlong investigation by The Associated Press uncovered roughly 17,000 official reports of sexual assaults by students from fall 2011 to spring 2015.“[Citation]

So for the record, I appeared on the Todd Herman show to support Kaeley Triller Haver’s fight to protect women and children, because I understand their plight. As someone who’s been sexually abused by two different people as a youth, I understand where they’re coming from and why they do what they do. I care. Their safety needs are more important than my identity needs. I don’t care what the cost is in saying this.

I didn’t offer unequivocal support for the Washington State 1552 initiative. I didn’t agree with all parts of it, and no one has bothered to ask me that question. Instead, they’ve just made assumptions that I offered complete support for the proposed ballot initiative. For the record, I don’t agree with fining or suing people for using a bathroom. We need smarter and safer solutions to our bathroom problem.

I also take a dim view to what the LGBT legal organizations do in regards to the bathroom war because they’re not solving the safety problem for women and children by their endless lawsuits against school systems, which are taking money away from more important things. Instead these LGBT legal organizations are selfishly fighting identity battles while fully knowing that women and children are their collateral damage during this bathroom war.

The only thing that will actually solve the problem for women and children and everyone else is to start working to get everyone into their own private, safe, and secure spaces. That’s a big, tough task. It takes guts. It takes people that really are leaders. It takes infrastructure money. None of the LGBT legal aid organizations are up to a challenge like that. Instead, they’d rather blow their money on child soldiers for their bathroom wars. I don’t think they care about these clients. Because if they win it bolsters the ego of some trans man or some trans woman somewhere in their food and money chain.

The glaring thing you’ll notice about the bathroom war is that the genderqueer/non-binary community doesn’t have bathrooms despite making up one third of the transgender population. Where’s the sympathy from Lambda or the ACLU about this?

I don’t go into women’s restrooms as I don’t “pass”, and if you don’t pass in this state there’s a heavy stigma that you’re probably trying to creep on children in a bathroom.“[Citation]

It’s also a fact that only 21% of the trans community can pass as the opposite sex in public accommodation settings such as bathrooms.. Let alone locker rooms, which elevates the discussion to an entirely new level. So even if Lambda and the ACLU win their fucked up bathroom wars with their child soldiers like Gavin Grimm and Drew Adams, the trans community in general still loses. Because the bulk of us don’t look like or pass as the sex that’s opposite of our biologies.

Nor does it take a rocket scientist to point out that one of the biggest dangers in letting transgender men become too heavily involved in bathroom litigation is the fact that since they pass far better than trans women because of the strong hair growth effects of testosterone injections, they lose touch with reality in regards to what the trans community as a whole looks like.

If having facial hair is the standard for being a male or represents what a male looks like according to how transgender men think, then nearly all trans women are still males.

We deserve better leadership. I’m not one to shy away from pointing this out.

The Twisted Legacy Of The Gender Clinics And Their Charlatans

A discussion on Reddit about biological sex tells us everything we need to know about the twisted legacy of the gender clinics; because it perfectly demonstrates how delusional some transgender people have become due to the ideologies that have been advanced.

Grimm was born a female

No he was not.“[Citation].

In a post about the Gavin Grimm case, a delusional transgender product of these charlatans just can’t fathom that G.G. was born a female.

G.G. is also transgender. That is, his assigned sex at birth was female, but that designation is not consistent with his male gender identity. G.G. has been diagnosed with Gender Dysphoria, the medical diagnosis for individuals whose gender identity—their innate sense of being male or female—differs from the sex they were assigned at birth, which causes distress. Id. ¶ 11; Expert Declaration of Randi Ettner, Ph.D. (Ettner Decl.) ¶ 12, 29. Gender Dysphoria”[Citation]

Well, the problem with that person’s argument that Grimm wasn’t born a female is the ACLU lawsuit itself, which clearly says Grimm was born a female.

Things like this have been my observation over and over in the transgender community. Members of the community itself don’t even understand what’s being argued in the very lawsuits that are determining their future.

There’s biological sex and there’s gender identity. They are very different things. The science isn’t fully in on this issue, but I still say the best we can be in this argument is a form of intersex as trans people. And I think that’s a much healthier way to view ourselves. It’s also a much healthier way to have society view and understand us.

On a side note: kudos to the ACLU in this lawsuit for erasing non-binary identities in claiming that transgender consists of male and female identities.

This of course runs contrary to the language in section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act which states: “The term “gender identity” means an individual’s internal sense of gender, which may be male, female, neither, or a combination of male and female, and which may be different from an individual’s sex assigned at birth.[Citation]

This is why I always warn the non-binary community to be cautious of binary transgender people. Because they don’t have our best interests at heart. And the ACLU is littered with binary trans lawyers.

Yeah. It’s True. Lambda Legal Fired Me As A Client Because Of My Conservative Ties, Interviews, And Writings

“But in defending Yiannopoulos, the ACLU’s latest action also angered some of its traditional and strongest supporters, even within its own ranks — like Chase Strangio, a staff attorney with the organization.”

“In a message posted on Twitter on Thursday, Strangio expressed disappointment in the organization’s decision to represent Yiannopoulos, a polarizing figure because of views he expresses that many consider racist, sexist, xenophobic and transphobic.“[Citation]

The politics of free legal aid from LGBT organizations like Lambda and the ACLU can be quite colorful at times.

Take my situation for example. Just very recently Lambda revoked my retainer and fired me as a client because of a radio interview I gave to a conservative radio station. And because of my writings about the transgender military situation.

I think I was under retainer for around 9 months and they never filed my promised lawsuit to help me get a passport with an “X marker” for my sex. But every time a trans boy or trans girl got kicked out of a school bathroom because of being the wrong biological sex, they were right there quickly suing.

So it’s quite the development that Lambda will fire me for being a vile or unsavory client because I associate with conservatives to help them understand our issues, while at the same time ACLU attorney Chase Strangio doesn’t seem to think that Chelsea Manning has a male violence problem and isn’t homophobic. According to news articles Chase Strangio is Chelsea Manning’s attorney.

Do I need to point out that as Manning was getting released from prison and being made into the next trans media darling that these chat logs still exist?

“(01:45:18 PM) bradass87: i punched a dyke in the phace…”

“(01:45:43 PM) bradass87: half the S2 shop was at least bi”

“(01:46:05 PM) bradass87: it was all female”

“(01:46:46 PM) bradass87: i got sick of these dykes and their drama… it was worse than “The L Word”…”[Citation]

Do I need to point out that Manning stabbed another soldier with a pencil?

“The CBS journalist also highlighted that “if investigators had checked his enlistment papers, they might have seen that he wrote that he joined the military to ‘sort out the turmoil and mess in my life.'” He also cited how “before Manning’s top-secret clearance was granted, he stabbed a soldier with a pencil, and was ordered into counseling for fits of rage.”[Citation]

Do I need to point out how Manning threatened their stepmother with a knife?

“UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN (from 911 call): My husband’s 18-year-old son is out of control, and just threatened me with a knife.“[Citation]

As you can tell I’m fresh out of sympathy in regards to any claims by Chase Strangio of Milo being transphobic or vile in any way, because Chase was more than willing to represent Chelsea Manning. A person far more disgusting in my opinion than anything Milo has yet to accomplish.

“The ACLU argues that Metro’s restrictions on advertising are overly broad, unevenly enforced, and a violation of the First Amendment.”[Citation]

According to Chase Strangio: “Milo preys on the deep-seated hatred for Black people, other people of color, trans people, immigrants, Muslim people and women that is sadly a central tenet of our social fabric and political system.”[Citation]

So while the ACLU is arguing about things being “unevenly enforced” and a violation of first amendment rights — I am too.

I also want to know where the ACLU’s support is for women’s privacy and what they’re doing to help stop male violence against women?

“The move to purge transgender military personnel is dishonorable to the thousands of transgender men and women who are serving our country with courage and who are integral parts of our armed services.”[Citation]

The exclusionary comment from Lambda attorney Sasha Buchert about transgender men and transgender women serving basically nails it. We don’t have transgender military service. We have binary trans, transsexual military service. That was by design, by the trans people who don’t mind screwing over the rest of their community.

14 Years Past My Expiration Date As A Transgender Person

Today I turned 54. Which has kind of a surreal feeling to it because I expected to be dead by forty. Prior to that age I was perfectly okay with not making it past that point. Because it was a constant struggle to continue finding reasons to live while struggling to suppress the characteristics that make up who I really am.

The reasons I expected to be dead by forty were multiple. It wasn’t because I felt trapped in the wrong body as so many trans people describe as their experience; it was because I felt trapped in life by society and it’s values about who I was supposed to be as a male. I had no mental connection to this entity of being a male.

Department of Defense Instruction 6130.03, which names as grounds for rejection “psychosexual conditions, including but not limited to transsexualism, exhibitionism, transvestism, voyeurism and other paraphilias.”[Citation]

As a youth I was denied the right of feminine gender expression by my family. I was sexually abused as a child by a male relative and an older neighborhood boy. In the military, I was denied the right to express both my sexual orientation and my gender expression. My marriage contained similar constraints, because I was expected to only love the woman that I had married, but my sexual orientation demanded that I be free to love both men, women, or anyone in-between. All of these institutions had severe built-in penalties for transgressions.

Each day during my later military years, I used to wonder which one would be my last. Spending each of those waking hours living in fear of discharge, I never expected to make it to retirement. These weren’t baseless fears, because I’d witnessed a male service member being discharged within 48 hours for being gay at Fort Hood, Texas. I knew how quickly it could all unravel and go down. Over the years, I watched countless other gay people be deposited outside the gates.

While making it to retirement was Plan A, committing suicide before I could be discharged was Plan B. Each trip to the rifle range became not a question of if I would hit enough targets to pass, but rather a question of if I should stick the barrel of that M16 in mouth and just get it over with. Just end that daily struggle. Living in such constant fear leads to asking yourself such dark questions.

So on this day of turning 54 there’s a lot of inner reflection taking place. There’s also a certain amount of rejoice that I didn’t succumb to any of the dark moments while trying to survive those tough times. Because I’ve been freed from my secrets. Everyone now understands that both my sexual orientation and my gender identity are fluid and can’t be contained by any institution. The military no longer owns me. My contract has been fulfilled. The gender binary also no longer owns me. Because I’ve broken it for the good of all those like me.

Are There Going To Be Problems With The First Lawsuit Over Transgender Military Service?

All five of the plaintiffs said they relied on the 2016 policy change when they notified commanding officers they were transgender. Besides the constitutional challenges, they ask the court to find Trump’s intentions would be a violation of the promises government has made to members of the military.”[Citation]

The breaking news late this morning is about the first lawsuit against the transgender military service ban. But I suspect there’s going to be problems.

October 03, 2015 8:00 AM: As she came to realize her true gender as a woman, Jennifer Peace knew she needed to have two difficult conversations.”

“The first would be with her wife, Deborah.”

“The second would be with the Army.”

“Until then, she was known as a male intelligence officer with a bright future who’d just returned from a second combat deployment.”

“Almost three years later, Capt. Peace is happier than ever with her wife and three children.”

But she’s still waiting to find out what the Army has in store for her.

“It’s excruciating,” said Peace, 30, a Spanaway resident who works as an intelligence officer at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.”

“She’s a soldier not-so-patiently waiting for a new Pentagon policy she’s almost certain will repeal the Defense Department’s ban on transgender military service members.”[Citation]

The trans ban was officially lifted on June 30, 2016. If any of the plaintiffs are the same folks who transitioned before the ban was lifted, then it should be quite interesting to see what happens when this gets pointed out in court. Not to mention that it’s against military regulations to have unauthorized medical treatments that your command doesn’t know about and hasn’t approved, most especially for officers.
