There is nothing like a Dame…to lecture the rest of us on privilege.

1. Create the illusion that everyone loves trans people now; there is no discrimination or prejudice anymore and that life for them is just a bowl of cherries. Check.
2. Create the myth that there is a powerful and sinister trans lobby operating behind the scenes that conspires to manipulate and control to the extent that they already have too much power now and are taking over. As evidenced by them getting ‘uppity’ recently and having the temerity to ask if they’re going to get equal rights at some point in the future. Check. Double-Check.
3. Turn the wealthy and powerful journalistic establishment who have traditionally persecuted and marginalised them into the actual victim instead. Check. Double-Check.
4. Re-iterate the usual pseudo-scientific misinformation about the ‘unfair advantages’ trans people have in sport backed up by no-one in particular. Check.
5. Of course, don’t forget to repeat the obligatory line that all trans people conform and reinforce patriarchal gender stereotypes whilst all cis people do not. Check. Double-Check.
6. In order to further terrify the reader, make casual mention of a trans person who has committed a crime – or is notorious in some way, like did time for alleged disloyalty or treason. Check. Double-Check. Triple-Check.
7. By all means, please remember to make the ridiculously offensive association with paedophilia (*Too over the top for the target reader audience to swallow? Go on, be bold…Trump is in power now and tomorrow belongs to Putin!). Check.
8. Reassure the reader that even if by the end of your article they have formed the suspicion that you have an ulterior motive to lie and demonize the extraordinarily diverse trans community, it doesn’t really matter if knuckle dragging bigots are incited by your words of hate and misinformation to actually go out there and discriminate, beat, rape and murder innocent trans people because they are basically a really miniscule minority anyway so in a world where rampant fascism’s back in fashion, they’re small and they don’t matter. Like Belgium. Check.
9. Conclude by claiming that you are not prejudiced, of course. Check.

(*Please note, will also work just as well when the outrageously right-wing media baron whom you work for wants to scapegoat a. immigrants; b. single parents; c. non-white people; d. the working class; e. disabled people; f. Muslims etc.) Happy paycheck journalism!

...quite literally!

…quite literally!

Up until yesterday, we at Becky Transsexual had no idea that the new White House occupant’s middle name was John.

Funny thing is to us he never looked like a John.

That said, the vice department of the Moscow city police force might disagree;)

Anyone familiar with us here at Becky Transsexual will know that we’re not exactly fans of Nazis. That’s w

Chabloz: Mocks children abused by Nazis

Chabloz: Mocks children abused by Nazis…need I say anything more

hy we were much dismayed to come across a video on YouTube in which a holocaust revisionist sings songs mocking the victims of the infamous Dr Joseph Mengele – many of whom were tiny children whom he conducted medical experiments on.


Even more mystifying is that Alison Chabloz (who is due to attend court this Thursday for her anti-Semitic hate-speak and defamation) has chosen the medium of swing/jazz music to express her odious views. You don’t have to have a Phd in Modern German History to know that in the Third Reich, which Chabloz and her confederates so admire, swing and all other forms of jazz music (which were the primary form of popular music back in the 1930s and ’40s) were strictly verboten. Moreover, anyone caught listening, and/or dancing to swing music – let alone playing or performing it – was liable to be arrested and even sent to a concentration camp, largely due to the fact of the worldwide prominence of the many talented black and Jewish performers and composers who created this extremely popular music genre.

Furthermore, in an age when the supposedly well-educated middle classes look down on the working classes and are apt to dismiss us as a bunch of knuckle-dragging, ignorant racists – often blaming the rise of the far right, Brexit and the coming to power of Trump on us – it is as well to note that there are many racists, fascists, neo-Nazis and generally bigoted snobs in their class too. Underneath the cut-glass posh, public-school educated accents, flash suits and professional careers so many a treacherous parasite lurks, abusing their power and socio-political economic privileges that our classist society invests them with to discriminate against people on the grounds of our race, religion, ethnic backgrounds, sexuality and, yes, gender identity too.

Over the past couple of weeks, far-right extremism particularly amongst the wealthy classes has come to prominence, yet of course the majority of our mainstream media (often run by equally rich people with views that border those of the Nazis) have not similarly put this down to the ignorance and depravity of people amongst their own class. Ex-public schoolboy, Joshua Bonehill-Paine is a glaring recent example of what one of these £36,000-a-year private schools can produce. A pathetic man-child fantasist who equates trolling the Internet to being a soldier in an actual war, Bonehead was finally jailed the other day after a long-term campaign of vile anti-Semitic and misogynist abuse and threats online towards Jewish Labour MP, Luciana Berger.

Bonehill-Paine: little boy fantasist with fixation on Ms. Berger

Obviously proof that the most posh education that money can buy is never guaranteed to turn its recipient into a gentleman, lady or even a reasonably polite, intelligent and more importantly kind human being.

Take a step back for a moment, look at the bigger picture and you will realise that there are plenty of double-barrelled surnames amongst the Nazi movement right from the start: let’s not forget that the most notorious British fascist-ever – blackshirt leader Oswald Mosely – was, in fact, a member of the aristocracy; a Baronet.

Baronet, Sir Oswald Ernald Mosely doing a most credible impression of a tea-pot in game of charades with chums sometime in the 1930s.

Then there were the equally notorious (and similarly ridiculous) two Mitford sisters (apologies to the other one who was normal.) Going right to the top of the shit pile there was the rather pathetic Edward VIII – ask anyone in the UK still old enough to vaguely remember him and they’ll most probably tell you what most ordinary folk thought of him at the time: a ‘twerp’ who was mocked mercilessly. And, don’t even get me started on the late Lady Birdbrain, sorry Birdwood!

Stuck up Aryan nose in the air: Nazi heiress 'Lady' Michele Renouf, complete with bling - so that's what happened to all that gold the Nazis stole

Nazi heiress ‘Lady’ Michele Renouf: plenty of bling – so that’s what happened to all that gold the Nazis stole

Our supposedly social ‘betters’ are still at it, so it’s no it’s not surprise to find today’s leader of choice for Britain Nazis (who evidently relishes his tabloid billing as ‘the third most important fascist leader in Britain’), is yet another double-barrelled named schmuck – ex-army officer Jeremy Bedford-Turner (oooh fancy!) Friends call him Jez (is that short for Jezebel, one wonders?;)

Dishonorably discharged: contemporary British Nazi Fuhrer, Jezebel Bedford-Truck (or whatever his name is)

Dishonorably discharged: contemporary British Nazi Fuhrer, Jezebel Bedford-Truck (or whatever his name is)

He is self appointed Fuhrer of an organisation of posh men in suits called The London Forum, who meet at the city’s four star Grosvenor Hotel to proclaim their deranged, hateful ‘theories’ to similarly wealthy, influential people of their class and then post it on YouTube for the commoners.

There was something deeply sickening that I felt arise deep within me when I saw those fucking privileged snobs all gathered round snorting with laughter and derision at the sick jokes about poor little kids maimed and murdered by Mengele during the Holocaust from the hateful, big fat gob of the similarly ‘well-spoken’ Alison Chabloz, Switzerland-dwelling ex-wife of some bankster who no doubt has wads of cash stuffed away from her divorce settlement in some fancy Swiss bank account. They’re all a bunch of sick parasites and represent everything that’s not only wrong with Britain, but with the rest of the world too – now that billionaire puppet Trump has seized power in the USA to do their bidding.

So next time those amongst the well-to-do who are not Nazis (maybe just classist snobs) decide to look down their noses at the Great British Working Class they might care to remember the miners back in the ’30s who downed tools to travel to Spain and join the International Brigades to fight Franco’s fascists during the civil war there. Or they might want to reflect that it was ordinary, everyday people who fought against Hitler and brought him down and defeated him in the end. Ordinary people of every conceivable nationality, race, sexuality and gender whose basic, decent level of humanity could no longer tolerate living under, or the threat of living under, a Nazi regime – either for themselves, or for others.

Smiling happy people all around? Nazi socialites, the Mitford Sisters Diana and Valkyrie (yes, really!), on the set of classic British TV comedy On the Buses sometime in the 1930s - I guess;)

Privileged Nazi socialites, the Mitford Sisters Diana and Valkyrie (yes, really!), on the set of classic British TV comedy On the Buses sometime in the 1970s – I guess;)

Because you see, the extremists in whatever shape or form will never win because the majority of reasonable people do not want to live in a world like that – even if they are not the particular groups who are scapegoated by those particular extremists at the time.

That’s why I really hope that Alison Chabloz loses her case this Thursday and for this latest Nazi wannabe ‘warrior’ the war really will be over.

(Not so sweet?) Caroline


Becky Transsexual couldn’t help noticing how Labour MP, (and former ‘Blair Babe’), Caroline Flint waded into the debate on gender and public washrooms the other day with all the subtlety and forethought of a 2003 illegal invasion of a sovereign state, predictably leaving similarly high levels of ‘shock and awe’ amongst the thinking classes in her wake.  The Beckinator finds the saddest aspect of all of this, though, is how self-publicizing radio Caroline has turned out to be something more of a weapon of mass distraction than destruction (of self, or otherwise), at least so far as such.

I mean, how disappointing that the first-ever UK parliamentary debate into transgender equality should become derailed to concentrate on how trans and gender non-conforming people pose such a supposedly potential threat to cis people when using public facilities.  Particularly so, when statistically, it has been shown time after time that it’s actually us who are far, far more likely to be attacked by cis people than the other way ’round.

But what self-promoting, publicity-seeking, vote-hungry career politician ever passed up the opportunity to ingratiate oneself to the Great British Tabloid, eh?  Moreover, with the shock decision of 52 per cent of the UK to Brexit; a correspondingly startling rise in the popularity of far-right parties across Europe and the realisation of the nightmare scenario of Donald Duck being elected as President of the USA, I guess it’s only natural that a type of politician with no specific ideology other than furthering their own career should see it as currently imperative that they now cash in their chips with the shift toward the extreme right.

This one, of course, insists she is not transphobic and as a socialist women MP is a great friend of LGBT people; a trusty comrade with a homotransphilic ‘squeaky clean’ voting record to match – whom (like the recently glitter-bombed George Galloway) comes not to bury us, but to praise us.  Instead, Flint assures us, what her misgivings on the prospect of what she terms ‘gender-neutral’ public facilities was all about was her concern for the safety of women.  She actually said that ya know, she said she cares *passionately* for the rights of women…and, erm…oh yes, those transgenders.  (Whom, the women amongst whom, presumably, she doesn’t actually class as women by her omission of us).  Gee thanx, Caroline: unconscious bias, much??!

Moreover, your derailing of a debate that was supposed to be about transgender equality (which I guess also includes the right to safety) to transforming it into something that was ‘all about teh cis’ is kinda reminiscent of what femeenists such as yourself complain about when MRAs take over debates about sexism’s impact on women by claiming that the issue is that men are the ones who are really discriminated against, not women.  kettle, pot, black, much?;)

Must admit, the more the Bexxxster thinks on this the more she wonders if Caroline Flintstone is genuine in her claims that she is not transphobic. Hhhhmmmmmmmmmm…..

Well, lookey what we got ourselves here now…………….Facts-wise, that is.  For starters, it didn’t help that she highlighted a transphobic article in the New Statesman on the subject, by serial trans exclusionary ‘radical’ feminist, Sarah Ditum as her primary motivation in raising such concerns.  I mean quoting someone like Sarah Ditum on Twitter as an inspiration for asking a question in a parliamentary debate about transgender equality is equivalent to citing notorious Neo-Nazi holocaust revisionist, David Irving as a reliable source in one on anti-Semitism. CerrriKKKey!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I’m sure alarm bells would rightly go off if a mainstream MP had done that and their real intentions and sympathies be subsequently probed to find out if they are in line with the views of an avowedly left-wing/liberal democratic political party or whether they need to be expelled so they can peddle their irrational hate with the BNP! With some irony moreover, a keen critic of Jeremy Corbyn like Flint would have probably wasted no time in being one of the first to slap down one of his supporters for doing so!

Flint’s relationship with Sarah Ditum in this regard is kind of worrying – particularly so, since Flint has not only cited Ditum once, but has also now thanked her gushingly in a further Tweet following this controversy. Ditum is NOT an unbiased source and it would be fairly clear beyond all reasonable doubt to a reasonably intelligent person like veteran front-bench, high-profile MP Caroline Flint to realise this. Ditum has a history; a track record of hostility towards the transgender community. If they’re mates and believe exactly the same things about the trans community, as a prominent public servant, Flint should at least be up-front about it. In a world where politicians are increasingly gaining a reputation for being two-faced, an increasingly weary electorate deserve to know if they are voting for a progressive MP or instead someone who has more in common with US Republicans in North Carolina in regard to certain issues and certain groups of people.

No doubt Flint and her supporters will try and make this all about being ‘no platformed’ (as is the current, ‘oh, those beastly trans activists!’ standard ‘excuse’ rolled out by those challenged on their transphobia). I, and I suspect most of the people within the trans community, contrary to tabloid accusations and those of the usual self-appointed right-wing pundits, have no desire to no-platform anyone for expressing their own stupid and bigoted ideas, but if Caroline Flint is using her position to lobby and grandstand on transphobic people’s behalf then she should declare such an interest so we all know exactly where we are with her. It actually goes beyond transgender issues alone: speaking with forked-tongue is precisely what causes the cynicism towards mainstream politics that so many politicians are apt to accuse the electorate of. Not good for the health of a supposedly liberal democracy.  And, meantime, by filibustering and attempting to further erase the voice and collective experience (not to mention desperate needs) of a minority group – who is effectively ‘no platforming’ whom here?

Soap box rant over and out…and I can assure you, I remain very OUT and intend to do so indefinitely!

Sorry this is old news to many people, but I only just caught up with it on You Tube the other day. Pathetic, absolutely pathetic. The audience seems to think so too, as Trump makes himself an utter laughing stock here. Not that he really had to put any effort in that himself anyway with his track record.

I guess he could be called a half-hearted transphobe in that he’s prepared to make the effort to be transphobic if he thinks it will make him popular (which he’s obviously unsure of, if the weasel-like behaviour in the above clip is anything to go by). I guess the Caitlyn Jenner factor might have kicked in here, with a slight realisation that not all trans people are necessarily going to vote Democrat, despite the Rethuglican Party being the traditional party of the transphobic religious US right.

Erm…isn’t a transgender person voting Republican kind of analogous to a turkey voting for Thanksgiving, though?

Plus even though he doesn’t seem that particularly obsessed with us, who could forget Trump’s dufus-like after-reaction a few years’ back, when he finally had to concede to equality laws which allow trans women like Miss Universe candidate Jenna Tacklova to take part in his beauty contest. Making a weak, immature pun on her name associating it with genitalia on some mindless US prime time TV chat show pretty much shows him as beneath the intellectual of the average 12-year-old bully.

Should, no doubt appeal to some of the transphobic nutjobs with time on their hands and nothing better to do with it than invade Target stores to disturb the peace protesting about trans people having the right to use public lavatories though. Seriously, these people are like the racial segregationalists of the 1960s and the ‘commies under the beds’ red scare McCarthyite witch-hunt paranoid pitchfork wielding fanatics all rolled into one. They are simply acting to type as if you look throughout US history there is a tendency for these sorts of national panics – up to and including the legendary time when a sci-fi radio show opened with a statement that the Martians had landed and it caused pandemonium amongst large swathes of terrified listeners who actually assumed this was a real news flash!

Personally, I can’t conceive of why anyone would wish to vote for such a frightful chap. Anyone out there who is considering voting for him in November’s forthcoming US presidential election, please do feel free to enlighten me as to what the attraction could possibly be?

To that end, probably the most miraculous aspect of this whole Trump phenomenon to me as an observer from abroad is that I’m actually surprised that there’s anyone left whom he’s managed to not offend. At the rate he’s going with regard to alienating the American electorate, I really do feel it’s unfair that the Democrats haven’t offered to put him on their payroll as he must be Hillary Clinton’s best campaign asset! Though he hardly needs the cash, does he?
