We seem to be at a flashpoint in the transgender culture wars. Long-threatened violence is now becoming real, and people have been murdered. “Scott” Newgent, a biological woman who regrets “transitioning” and now campaigns against the trans agenda (you might recognize Newgent from Matt Walsh’s documentary What is A Woman?), told me on the podcast this week that violence has been inevitable for some time. Walsh also noted during a roundtable discussion that although he cannot get into specifics for security reasons, he believes more violence is coming.
We still have not seen the manifesto of the trans shooter who murdered three children and three adults at a Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee, but we all know why LGBT groups immediately put out press releases demanding that it be suppressed. This mass shooting happened a mere week after a feminist speaker was mobbed and assaulted in New Zealand by trans activists; more recently, activist Chris Elston was physically assaulted in Vancouver by trans activists. These incidents — and others — have been reported individually by the press, but journalists have declined to notice a pattern.
But the stories keep coming. Consider this report, from Andy Ngo, who noted that “Portland media and police still refuse to mention the suspect accused of brutally murdering a cab driver on Easter Sunday is trans.” Only Fox covered the story:
There’s also the disturbing story of the “transgender” Florida school teacher currently “transitioning” from male to female while (unsurprisingly) grappling with mental illness. Despite allegedly threatening to “shoot the kids” and then himself, this teacher is still in the classroom — despite complaints from parents who are understandably fearful.
Swimmer Riley Gaines, a former competitor of “transgender” swimmer William “Lia” Thomas, the man competing in female swim meets, has also faced violence for protesting against the unfairness of having biological males compete against women. During a speech at San Francisco State University last month, Gaines, a 12-time All-American champion, was “ambushed and physically hit” by a mob of trans activists, with a crowd of cops having to rush her to safety. The trans activists screamed at her as the police surrounded Gaines, shouting “Why are you running?” and “Yeah you f___g transphobic bitch” and “You crying!”
