Call for help: please speak out about this joint harassment of a young trans girl by TERFs and the religious right, in unholy alliance

Please see this post by Cristan Williams at transadvocate.com about the horrible situation involving the coordinated attacks by the so-called Pacific Justice Institute and a certain particularly loathsome and shameless anti-trans “feminist” activist — the latest example of their unholy alliance — upon a young trans girl in Colorado whom they’ve accused of “harassment” in a girls’ room — which, as it turns out, consists entirely of her having the temerity to exist in a bathroom while trans, and  while using the bathroom which she should use and is entitled to use.   At least this one TERF is so single-minded about doing whatever she can to attack trans people, that she’s willing to ally herself (and host the words of) an institution that also devotes itself to homophobia and fighting against (among other things) same sex marriage, gay and lesbian adoption and parenting, etc.

Some media outlets have retracted the “harassment” allegation after the school itself, and people who were actually involved, confirmed that it was a fabrication.  But Fox News (of course!), and the Pacific Justice Institute, have doubled down, with the enthusiastic  assistance of  well-known TERFs.

Please respond if possible to the call for help in this post, and also please speak out, if you can and wherever you can, about what’s happening.  This is a perfect example of something that people can do to fight transphobia themselves — something that there simply aren’t enough trans people to be able to manage entirely on their own.

    Cathy Brennan and others like her appear to be psychotics. There is never any point arguing with a psychotic: they do not respond to rational arguments. The only alternatives are marginalizing them through adverse publicity, or suing them for e.g., libel, verbal assault, tortious interference with actual malice, and the like.

    One child… must make PJI and Brennen feel real big…

    Anti-trans bigot Cathy Brennan hits a new low by allying herself with a creationist, “Christian” (I use the term loosely) and mysoginistic group to bully one young transgirl.

  6. Thanks for posting this, I hadn’t noticed the follow up, I was able to update my posting and twitter feeds.

  7. Reblogged this on Trans-Atheist Pod and commented:
    Attacking another human being for your own religious or ideological reasons is sick and twisted. This is a wonderful example of how the Pacific Justice Institute displays their love of Christ.
