One of British Columbia’s most notorious trans activists—a biological male who styles himself as a woman—performed abysmally in Vancouver’s school trustee elections on October 20, managing only 2.49% of the vote (17th place.) Morgane Oger, the vice-president of the BC NDP, spends much of his time on Twitter defending trans ideology, informing people that their children must be taught his worldview, misrepresenting the science surrounding gender, and threatening people who disagree with him with human rights complaints. He also enjoys using the word “TERF,” which stands for “trans-exclusionary radical feminist”—a loaded term in an environment where biological men claiming to be women have actually been physically attacking feminists.
Anyhow, Oger is claiming to be thrilled with certain details of his defeat on Twitter. I’m just glad that he lost—and that Barry Neufeld, a sane man who has been campaigning against SOGI 123, won a much-needed victory in the City of Chilliwack.
