Lesley Woodburn, whom sources say has attended the May Day march every year for twenty years, displayed at the 2019 march at Trafalgar Square the standard dictionary definition of women. The purpose was to “defend our sex-based rights as women and girls,” she later said.
Transgender activists at the march perceived the dictionary definition of “woman” on Ms Woodburn’s banner as a transphobic denial of men’s ability to be women.
To put her in her place, the angry mob surrounded Ms Woodward, who is black, jeering and calling her “black scum,” “transphobe,” and “n—–,” and chanting “TERF TERF TERF!” TERF is a slur used against women who do not believe in gender identity ideology. The angry throng also denounced Ms. Woodward as a “fascist.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian feminist and novelist, was also on the receiving end of racial abuse and ethnic stereotyping on social media in March 2017 when she stated on Britain’s channel 4,
My feeling is trans women are trans women. If you lived in the world as a man with the privileges the world accords to men, and then sort-of change/switch gender, it’s difficult for me to accept that we can equate your experience with the experience of a woman who has lived from the beginning in the world as a woman and who has not been accorded those privileges that men are. I don’t think it’s a good thing to talk about women’s issue being exactly the same as trans women.
More than anyone, gender identity ideologues are enraged by black women who refuse to accept and bow to this faith, like Ms Woodward and Ms Adichie. In the minds of gender identity ideologues and their supporters, the ideologues are inherently superior in sex, or in race and sex, to every black woman.
She is only a guest in womanhood and in humanity, he believes, and he will remind her of it.
By virtue of their sex, or sex and race, the gender identity ideologue is entitled to lay claim on and colonize everything they please – including womanhood. If he says he is a woman, it should be accepted by a black woman as a declaration of God. Who is a black woman to contradict him?
A black woman is to exist only as a foil and talking point in the transgender debate. A black woman is to lay down quietly, and provide her neck as the transgender individual’s step stool so that he can elevate himself at her expense. Stripping her of her womanhood, so that he can make his manhood appear more womanly.
Knowing that a black woman “gets” to be a woman, while a man can never be a woman, threatens their sense of superiority. A black woman is simply born female, and the state of being female is something a man can never attain for himself, or take away from her.
He realizes there’s something in existence that can never be his. Feeling powerless and powerlessly deprived of one thing when everything he wants should be his for the taking threatens the gender identity ideologue’s need to believe in his ultimate and thorough superiority.
Narcissistic rage pours out in the form of race-specific sexist abuse, a desperate attempt for the gender identity ideologue to reestablish the groundless and now shaken sense of superiority by grasping desperately onto the card he feels he has to play. Supporters desperate for his approval, often female, assist him in tearing down the black woman who inflicted his narcissistic wound.
Despite the fact that she was “surprised, shocked and hurt” by the incident, Ms. Woodward told a Morning Star reporter that she has found “a new strength,” and “wouldn’t be bullied” for standing up for women’s sex-based rights.
At a recent event, she urged women to “be visible as much as we can, take action as much as we can and to understand what our collective experience is and pass that on.”
Ms Woodburn is not the first woman in the UK to be attacked by transgender activists. In September 2017, four biologically male individuals who identify as transgender women viciously pummeled 61-year-old Maria MacLachlan, at Speaker’s Corner. Ms. MacLachlan was attending a gathering dedicated to discussing the implications of the Gender Recognition Act on women’s rights.
One Facebook user remarked about Ms Woodburn’s experience, “It is telling what kind of people those are when their main enemies are leftist women who stand up for women’s rights. Exposed.”
