Some of you might be wondering why I'm reopening old wounds.
This morning, I had someone alert me to a brief exchange between an internet sociopath and GIDWatch, the official twitter account for genderidentitywatch.com.
I'm somewhat reluctant to post the screengrab. And I really don't want to dignify this, but I'm way past the point of being sick and tired of having people, LGBT activists mostly, invite themselves of the right to judge and criticize me.
First off, whatever happened occurred when I wasn't a blogger or activist. I went to prison for a year because I was criminally profiled by a man who is notorious for trolling gay websites and building criminal cases against gay men and teen boys. And becase I was being careless and ignorant. It had nothing to do with pedophillia.
The reason I became an activist and blogger was to fight back from people attempting looking to drag me back into prison again after doing time for the crime.
But it's the past. What's done is done and there's nothing I can do to change that. What I can do, however, is learn from experience and make goddamn certain it doesn't happen again, which is precisely what I've done for the past ten years now advocating against special interest groups causing harm and endangering the gay and lesbian community.
They would include boylovers, ex-gays, anti-gays, pedophiles, religionists gay and straight, and now homophobic trans women activists.
Not that anyone's noticed or wants to.
But for the past ten years, I've had to put up with a bunch of overzealous LGBT activists, the majority of whom for reasons that cannot be explained, are terribly narrowminded, paranoid, and demonstrably hypocritical beyond belief.
It saddens me that Gender Identity Watch has decided they too, want to play an irresponsible and dangerous game at my expense by lumping me in with pedophiles and rapists.
"You're disgusting. So is Nelson."
I'm not sure what Gender Identity Watch are implying. For the record, I've never mocked anyone's rape.
Nor do I spend my day stalking people online and creating content at their or anyone's expense.
Let's talk about disgusting; The only people known for linking pedophillia and homosexuality are anti-gay cowards.
And far as I my recent opines regarding transgenderism and transgenders, I've been trying very hard to seperate the two, but as Ive been witnessed to, they love the hypocrisy, they love having it both ways on everything.
And that's the real disgusting part of it all.
For example, trans activists have been demanding that we as a community not use words like tranny and shemale. They call it a slur against transgenders, despite there being no evidence tranny and shemale ever being used to denigrate trans people. On the other hand, trans women activists have taken it upon themselves to use the pedophile slur to vilify gay activists and bloggers [like me], never mind the fact there is no actual link between pedophilia and homosexuality.
But don't let the facts get in the way of one's narrow minded agenda.
As for Gender Identity Watch, it's seems they've too have forgotten what they're supposed to be about exactly and have imagined themselves of the right to exploit sex offenders for their own personal or monetary gain.
For several days, GIDWatch has been alerting it's followers the Sylvia Rivera Law Project has been giving a blogging platform to a registered sex offender named Lewis Stevens. Lewis now wants to become Leanna and share his or her rather, experiences as an incarcerated trans woman
Not that there's anything wrong with someone detailing their transition, but it's just that the Sylvia Rivera Law Project is serious lacking accountability and transparency on this one, refusing to mention Leanna, formerly Lewis, is currently serving an eighty seven month prison after pleading guilty to one count of promoting a sexual performance of a minor.
Or the hypocrisy and unethicality in playing sex offender tug of war.
And therein lies the problem. It seems when all else fails for GIDWatch, they go trolling for the nearest sex offender online and blame them for the perceived threat to women's spaces.
It's a sick twisted game I want no part of.
The unfortunate part is I've been trying without any help from Gender Identity Watch or anyone else who agrees with me the T must leave LGB, to stop attempts by trans activists to have the Southern Poverty Law Center declare Gender Identity Watch a hate group. I even tried writing a letter to Twitter on why it was a mistake to ban Cathy Brennan. I've also argued with people about the recent attempts to bar Gender Identity Watch from Facebook.
And as many may recall, I was the only gay blogger to express his outrage over the way officials with NYC Dyke March allowed a bunch of women with penises to verbally assault and harass a lesbian activist who was there to celebrate being an out and proud lesbian.
Quite the thank you from a coalition whose shared activist focus quickly spins the bottle to land on the choice to advert their gaze, when their own personal and/or monetary gain stands to be lost through the association of the common member's pain gone public.
Yeah, no kidding.
But it’s another thing to be backstabbed, hated on, blamed, accused, lied about, etc.
If anyone thinks exploiting/attacking me is the best way to win a character debate, you better seriously reconsider what it is you're advocating for because today you made it quite obvious you're an organization that promotes oppression. This is not how you win friends, this is how you lose them.
And in the future, if you or anyone has a problem with me, don't hide behind your Twitter account. It makes you a coward.
