London Irish Centre Says No to Radfems

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 20th, 2013

London Irish Centre Says No to Radfem 2013 Conference

Radfem, the radical feminist group whose members espouse a fascist, sexist and violent ideology have been ousted, yet again, from their planned convention centre. Last year, Conway Hall banned Radfem 2012 by citing that their exclusionary policy was at odds with UK legal obligations. This year, it was the London Irish Centre’s turn to reject Radfem after they were awoken to the reality of inviting the pro-violence group into their venue when MRA London, a male human rights activist group and part of “A Voice for Men”, mounted a protest on their doorstep.

MRA London is a peaceful group comprising both male and female members who stand up for the human worth of men and boys. It is also mixed race and includes gay members.

When hearing of Radfem’s rejection, the group’s co-founder, Andy Thomas said, “We don’t believe in shutting down debate. However, it is vital that there is someone speaking up on behalf of men and boys. And for the first time ever, they now have a voice.”

He adds, “This is a victory for men and boys everywhere because the message is clear—the time when their human rights can be trampled on with impunity is now over.”

The Radfem 2013 conference was to feature Cathy Brennan, a prominent radical feminist and a US attorney in Maryland. Until February, 2013, she was also the owner of the now defunct website, Radical Hub—a site which featured calls for child murder, extermination, and male eugenics.

In 2011, A Voice for Men in the United States offered a $1,000 reward for the real identity of a Radical Hub contributor “Vliet Tiptree”, who was duly identified as Pamela O’Shaughnessy from California—an author of crime novels published by Simon and Schuster. O’Shaughnessy had written a lengthy piece detailing a plan for the “extirpation” of half the human race—the male half.

Sheila Jeffreys, who was to be a keynote speaker at the event, was also regular contributor to the “male eugenics discussion group” on the Radical Hub website. Jeffreys teaches sexual politics at the University of Melbourne, Australia, and has been accused by Dr. Greg Canning of A Voice for Men in Australia, of teaching “hate” across Australian universities.

All prejudice is seen as fashionable and virtuous in its time, and we’ve had 40 years or so of anti-male sentiment in the media and wider culture, so much so that it has become normalised. However, MRA London and A Voice for Men believe that we are witnessing the start of a sea change were, for the first time, radical feminist rhetoric will become universally recognised for the toxic bigotry that it is.

MRA London can be found at: www.MRALondon.org, and A Voice for Men at: www.AVoiceForMen.com.

        You applaud the bigoted nature of doors closing on those with passion in their voice? No doubt you decry also those that tried to close down “the doors” of the voices at the U of T recently.

        You pick and choose the voices you want to hear, and this is so typical of the male animal that it has many shaking their heads with, “Well what else does one expect from those sorts with their testosterone swilling ways?”

        This announcement must be buried and I implore the more giving feminine side inside you to instigate that maneuver. Delete this article immediately as it will only encourage more nonsense from the MHRA assembly of madness.

        You disgust me.

          You may be king of the profeminist world but you are no more than an ant in our ever-expanding reach of men’s human rights.

          We win – you lose… (PS. and I’m astonished that a profeminist like you would receive upvotes on a mens’ forum… obviously from feminist freinds of yours!).

            Profeminism is the only measure we know of that tells us that the world needs steerage, and rational steerage at that.

            The Patriarchy has been the monster under your bed all this time and yes, he is real and he is sucking the remnants of oxygen from your atrophied and silly male brain. Wake up and this time do it after your eyes are open and you are horizontal whilst staggering to your morning coffee vat.

            Downvotes? Bah! I am used to that here and I say throw them at me as a fool does chilli peppers at this old spice-taster’s dinner plate. I could do with the laugh quite frankly.

            And also quite frankly, you disgust me also.

            Sounds like the place where radfems want to confine the male half of the population – while they hog all of the first-class facilities.

            Hats off to MRALondon for their stirling activism. Another nail in the coffin for those gender bigots. Not even a disused wool shed in Dunneedoo will want radfem stench in their venue.

            Are you a witchdoctor with an open paw filled with leeches needed for your style of practice? Surely you are aware that this century is the twenty first one, and that the feminists I speak for read books? (Those funny rectangular objects with odd squiggles)

            I do not ask you to remain quiet of course. That would be the method of unethical censorship. Your obtuse inflexions and pontification on matters well beyond your abbreviated male comprehension speak more about the hateful MHRA dirty secrets than your grubby mask can cover.

          Madness? MRALondon just handed the radical feminists their asses with logic and reason, quelling the radical feminist madness of wanting to destroy half the human race.

          The feminists were beaten with their own equality laws. Not with violence, but with the current laws being brought to bear equally on everyone. Not with advocating the outright murder of half the human race by degrading them to sub-human status, but by elevating the standard of behavior of the other half of the human race to a civilized level.

          Your opinion, while valid, has no place here. I ask you respectfully to go pound sand. And have a nice day.

S/he also learned an important lesson.. that men aren’t going to lie down with her/his particular brand of hypocrisy and poison any longer. Wake up and small the roses, Finly, after 50 years we’re finally standing up and calling out the likes of you for the gendercidal hatemongers you are.

          Nah, Manboobz’ new thing seems to be propaganda by conjuring up threat narratives when you record video of someone and post it on the Internet, by claiming you’re somehow threatening them with rape and death yet not providing any actual evidence of it.

          He tops it all off with pictures of robed klansmen because he’s classy like that and doesn’t see the irony in doing so when the people he is saying are so threatened are using black bloc tactics, posting promises of violent protests online, pulling fire alarms, blocking doors and carrying around large wooden posts making threatening gestures with them.

    The bit I don’t get is why the Radfems are even booking non-partisan venues for their conferences. There’s an entire network of women’s places where they could practice their witchcraft away from public gaze. Or is that the point?

  • http://www.deanesmay.com Dean Esmay

    I suppose it’s something of a sour note, but I do support these people’s right to spew their filth. I don’t think that means the London Irish Center is obligated to give them a venue, and I’m very happy that these vile bigots were and are still being exposed for who and what they really are. It does make me wonder about UK law exactly; here in the US you couldn’t use government force to stop them, and I’m not sure I’d want our laws to do that. I’m a firm believer that the cure for hate speech is more speech. The idea they’re being shut down by the UK government… is that literally what happened here?/

      It’s not just hate speech Dean. I’m sure the US government would have problem with a group of terrorists making plans about launching a bombing attack somewhere. In fact, it’s gripping the public privacy for exactly that matter (CISPA), and nobody is happy about that, because that would mean suspecting everyone as a criminal. However, everyone would welcome a law that brings the identified (group of) criminal/s to justice and limit their freedom of making plans.

      The reason that this group has been banned is its support for and promotion of violence, not hate speech: “This year, it was the London Irish Centre’s turn to reject Radfem after they were awoken to the reality of inviting the pro-violence group into their venue “.

      Ditto, I would have liked for them to be able to spew PUBLICLY, their misandry, but as I understand it, they disallow men at their conferences and that would therefore erase public discourse – to which I do have a problem with…

          If the radical sisters of mine wish to hold discussions regarding the unfettered and terrible ways of the male scourge that flows upon every shore then I suggest you give them the credit they deserve.

          It is not the right for us to look at their bricked windows and wonder of what it is that they are talking of. They are doing tremendous things with their blueprint study of their plans of patriarchy disassemblage.

          I have spoken to their leaders, via the conduit of a female intermediary, and have offered myself as a male guardian at any closed door where they wish to speak. Alone amongst their wimmin kind as it were.

      hi Dean,
      this is a very interesting illustration of the subtlety found within the equality legislation and its interpretation in England.
      There are seven protected characteristics under English law, and to discriminate against those characteristics is considered “anti-Equality”. However, there can be exceptions made under certain circumstances.
      I will give you a hypothetical example to illustrate:
      if the English Defense League wanted to hold a meeting in a Quaker meeting house, we can say that they were not permitted to hire our rooms because the aims of their organisation, were in direct conflict with our publicly espoused values. If however, the EDL approached an organisation that did not have a clearly defined charter of values, they could be refused a venue based on equality legislation i.e. they discriminate on the grounds of one of the seven protected characteristics.
      The converse can also be used in certain clearly defined situations. We can not say that any paid position within Quaker circles must be held by a member of the Religious Society of Friends, unless there is an express reason based on religious or previously defined legal frameworks. So our cleaners, administrators and other “secular” workers can come from any walk of life as long as they are in sympathy with our testimonies. However, our recording Clerk for yearly meeting, can have the explicit specification and a person description that he/she must be an adult member of the Religious Society of Friends. this is because, he/she has the role of representing Quakers in a public forum and administrative oversight of the charitable functions of Britain Yearly Meeting.

      back to the example of the London Irish Centre; I suspect they failed on two counts when booking the Radfems, 1) they failed to look at their own constitution to determine if an exception over the equality legislation would be possible and 2) they failed to do due diligence about who they were hiring to. They could have continued to hire for this conference however London MRA could have been sought judicial review on the legality of this hire ( the legal route) or could have picketed and highlighted the London Irish centres failure to adhere to equality legislation ( the media route).
      English law is frighteningly subtle over these things
      [please note there are 4 Nations in the UK, and for many legislative areas they have completely separate legal frameworks, when discussing the the work of the London MRA is a safer to say they are affected by English law rather than UK law] is

      I don’t think hate speech = free speech.
      This is a terrorist group who wants to exterminate a whole sex including children. How’s that “free speech”. If it were any other group they’d have been prosecuted and banned, like this terrorist cult ought to be.

      • ManUpManDown.

        “I don’t think hate speech = free speech.”

        This is exactly what the feminists in Toronto say.

      • http://www.deanesmay.com Dean Esmay

        I oppose hate speech laws on general principles. If you want to advocate eating babies and torturing Norwegians and Methodists you almost certainly need to be watched carefully but I want the government generally as far as possible from defining what is and is not hate speech. We’ve got worries even now that some of the Scandinavian countries may make criticism of feminism “hate speech,” and that’s a frightening thought.

        That said, if the group was denied a venue because of some other factor, then I’m not as worried about it.

        • Laddition

          As I see it, we’re just making sure that they own their shit. It’s particularly important that public employees and public figures own their shit. These people get paid from our taxes, they influence public policy, we should be clear what they believe.

          I don’t need anyone to define what they say as hate speech, that makes no difference. I just want they way they think made public.

          I want to be able to ask their bosses why they are putting someone who thinks that men and boys should be castrated in charge of any male, indeed, why they are employing someone so obviously cracked mentally.

        “I don’t think hate speech = free speech”

        I think you are wrong. Even the KKK has a right to march and give speeches (but not to hurt people or vandalize buildings) because that’s what a free society is. Besides, how better to expose what these awful radical feminists stand for than by letting them spew their deranged sentiments loud and clear?

      Maybe some of the RadFems need to go back to law school and retake Jurisprudence 101? It may help them to deal their Meme infected mindsets.

      Radfem showed that they were foolish when they assumed that UK/European law and US law are the same.

      They wanted their Meme and ignored The Law.

      In the UK we have freedom of speech and freedom of assembly – but what the RadFems were doing was denying assembly so they could speak freely in ways that are defined as #Hate.

      DARVO – Deny, Attack, Reverse legal ideas so they can claim False Victim Status and claim the #Trans victims are the offensive ones.

      The illegal Trans Ban means they were on a hiding to nothing – It was like the BNP (British National Party) banning non-caucasians and following their Meme and not The Law.

      You US folks are so inculcated in your constitution – and in The UK we have Magna Carta and over 800 years of Attorneys playing words and making a profit. It just makes a great deal of it all look different and some of the legal points have been switched about, but there is often more the same than different.

      Everyone’s Equal In Sight of The Law and the Goddess Eunomia (AKA Justitia ) has three interesting factors – she’s blind so that only reason is used not appearance or emotion – she has scales which shows that all are equal and that balance of law and reason prevails – and she carries a Sword to show that Justice cuts fast and clean. No doubt some of the RadFems will be confused because The Law is presented as feminine and just not on their side!

      I can see statues being toppled to warn the traitorous Goddess that her days are numbered. I do wonder what will be used to replace the Goddess and reinvent the myths of Patriarchy and law? I also wonder how the UK High Court will look with a massive Dildo on top.

      Odd too – outside The US Supreme Court a statue titled Contemplation of Justice. It’s female – the other statue is male “Guardian of Law” and he guards … so Matriarchal with women doing all the thinking and contemplating (Even holding a miniature man in her first) – and the men relegated to guard duty and expendable. I keep wondering whose days are numbered.

      The semiotics and hidden messages are very interesting!

      PS you do know that in 1976 for that Bicentennial thing the UK gave the US a special copy of Magna Carta – The Magna Carta display in the Crypt of the United States Capitol features a replica of the English document whose principles underlie much of the Constitution of the United States. and they say Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend – 50 Diamonds for 50 states, and they are still wanting more!

    • Laddition

      Just a guess, but I would expect that the publicity was what changed the centre’s mind. And the stain that would be attached to all of the organisations represented on the board. The next time that the centre’s funding from the public coffers came up, they would be handing an immense weapon to anyone looking to cut it.

      The radfem agenda is poison to any organisation looking for public funding and/or claiming to be ethical. That doesn’t require us to put any spin on what they ‘think’ at all, just add sunlight, pure, orange sunlight on what they say.

    • Sasha

      Hi Dean, they weren’t shut down by the UK government, and the fact that they would have been in breach of UK equality isn’t the primary issue.

      The issue is that this event would have been held at a centre which regularly hosts ‘family’ music and arts workshops. A centre which has a history of supporting women and men finding their feet in London; a city which quite literally was built by the Irish – the ‘navies’ who built the canals and underground, the labourers who maintan and build its roads and buildings, sewers and water pipes (and Olympic Parks).

      To host an event describing these men – who still disproportionately account for some of the capital’s highest rates of homelessness, mental illness, workplace injury, work-related disease and poverty; as ‘dominant oppressors’ ‘rapists’ who need to have their families ‘destroyed’, isn’t simply grossly offensive, it’s contrary to the values of the community the Centre serves.

      They’re just lucky it was the MRAs who caught them out, because if it had been the Catholic Mothers League who learned some bitches were proposing ‘castrating’ their sons they’d have really learned what violence was about.

    2013 has already been a really good year for men’s rights, and we’re only 4 months in.

    We couldn’t have done it without the feminists’ own consistent idiocy, and I think they rightfully deserve a hand too in this.

    For the first time in recent history, they have shown the world something they’re really really good at, that benefits both genders in an unbiased way: Dismantling their own ideology as a pretence for equality.

    Who would have imagined, that all it really took was someone standing up to them and adressing their claims in the same uncompromising and harsh way, that they’ve succesfully burned down the family structure in every nation in the world?

    The men, and the women that love them, has indeed arrived on the battlefield of the gender war, and surprisingly the opposition is firing blanks.

    If the ideologists don’t learn to STFU up soon and continues to expose themselves in everything they say and do, this is going to be very short and very sweet, and hopefully there’ll be no more need for FTSU.

    MRA’s of London:
    You did a fantastic job here, and I truly salute you for your efforts.
    Keep the steam up, guys!

    • Bewildered

      “…… that they’ve succesfully burned down the family structure in every nation in the world? ”

      To me this is the most tragic and far reaching consequence of this utter madness.

      I’m furious about the women’s liberationists. They keep getting up on soapboxes and proclaiming that women are brighter than men. That’s true, but it should be kept very quiet or it ruins the whole racket.
      Anita Loos

      LMFAO! Probably that’s how gynocentrism was entrenched in the public consciousness.
      But feminists by their sheer stupidity has ruined it for women in general.
      I doubt whether the status quo ante will ever be restored after feminism’s deserved demise.
      The toothpaste will have to be put in a less constraining container!
      If only the women had stuck to their part of the deal this ‘secret’ wouldn’t have been exposed.

    The really interesting aspect is how we found out about it. A journalist called out of the blue who had obviously been in touch with the center. This would either indicate a media shitstorm not generated by ourselves (and if not then by whom?) or that the centre is proactively contacting the media to disassociate themselves with Radfem.

    Both possibilities are encouraging.

    • http://shiningpearlsofsomething.blogspot.com Suzanne McCarley

      Icing on the cake, and it bodes well for the future. People are seeing it now, and I think we can expect more and more of them to materialize out of the darkness and stand behind us when we stand up to the bullies.

    • Laddition

      Someone in the centre is all it would take. If that’s what happened and I ever meet him/her, the beers are on me. I’d prefer that the organisation as a whole took the decision, but that’s not necessarily the case. Just one Agent Shamrock making a quiet, private little call to get the word out would have been enough. Anyone with even a vestigial sense of justice can do that.

      Great work guysngals.

      What is particularly sweet is that ‘all’ you needed to do was ensure that the venue knew what they were associating with, and that that association would be made public. We have the proof of what they believe, we have the way to make sure that word gets out. The ethical and financial consequences were suffiicent to get the job done – nice!

      It didn’t take large financial resources to achieve, which means that this can be repeated as often as required.

      And radfem 2014 venue? Just point them at what happened to radfem 2012 and 2013. The precedent has been set. What public venue manager wants to make a ‘brave’ or ‘controversial’ decision? That’s like sunlight to a vampire.

      As you say, an alert from the press is a very sweet thing indeed.

      Happy day. Equality won.

    Dear radical feminists:

    First, I’m going to thank and congratulate the men’s human rights activists in the UK whose work resulted in the ejection of the RadFem conference from their second attempted booking in two years. Those gentlemen and ladies deserve all the thanks and congratulations they get.

    Im aware of the oddity of offering that congratulation and thanks in a message addressed directly to the radical feminists, but it’s necessary to give credit where it’s due.

    But, to the feminists:

    I’m sorry you were not able to book a facility, and thus were unable to hold your conference. This is not sarcasm, I really am sorry you couldn’t do those things. I hope you will be able to find conference hosting and get together with your comrades in the future. Really. In fact, to help you do this, I have put together a list of items for you to accomplish, which will help you to achieve success in getting a reputable conference center to host you. You can think of me as a career coach – for your movement.

    ——————

    1: Recognize and repudiate the initiation of violence in your feminist rhetoric and policies.

    This needs no explanation. Killing or brutalizing children, based on their sex, promoting the extermination of men, publicly fantasizing about forced castration and so on – these are fantasies which would have embarrassed Joseph Goebbels

    2: Abandon and repudiate the constructed narrative of rape culture. It’s a transparent re-framing of the second-wave feminist talking point “all men are rapists”. It’s also demonstrably false, based on uniform criminal victimization data collected by the FBI and law enforcement agencies around the western world.

    3: Abandon censorship.

    It’s a totalitarian urge, and has no place in a movement pretending to advocate anyone’s human rights, even the subset of humanity identifiable as women.

    4: Repudiate and Abandon the tactic of othering through identity politics.

    ————————

    These steps will help you, feminists, to find a venue willing to host you, where you can gather together to connive and scheme with all your femmie buddies to your black little heart’s content. In fact, if you complete the steps outlined in this list, your movement might actually become what you all keep pretending it is. Namely, a human rights movement.

    But until you demonstrate some real political will towards the changes outlines above, we will continue to take great delight in fucking your shit up. Because right now, your movement is a violent hate movement, and you proponents of it are violent and hateful ideologues.

    It’s not going to get any better for you femmies. It’s going to get worse. We’re becoming better organized and greater in number all the time. Our message and rhetoric is increasingly being adopted by the mainstream, and the general public are rejecting the public disinformation sown by feminism for the past 3 generations.

    We’re coming to fuck your shit up, and doubling down on your hate, aggression and threat narrative will not help you. It will accelerate your defeat.

    Men’s rights are human rights.

    I hope this has been helpful, and have a lovely day.
    Thank you for your kind attention.

    ~JtO

    • August Løvenskiolds

      A very wise man once advised feminists to “burn your uniforms” and move away to hide. You should’ve listened, radfems. You should have heeded good advice.

    • Stu

      If feminists gave up all their radical plans and schemes, they would not become a human rights movement, they would cease to exist.

      You see, their are no non-radical feminist objectives that have not been achieved or surpassed already. That means the only things they can shoot for are female supremist goals, there are no fair and just causes for them to fight anymore. Not in the western world anyway.

      So, all these feminists who claim they are moderate, and fair, and just, go home and do nothing more, and stop calling yourself a feminist. That is like people calling themselves abolitionists when slavery has not existed in the west for donkey’s years. You have to make a choice, are you a feminist, if so, you are supporting radical, hateful, discriminatory, female surpremisist garbage, or you are not a feminist. That is feminism now ladies. Stop searching for trivial little mole hills to turn into mountains so you can pretend you are still fighting for some just cause.

      The only feminists proposing laws, and policies now, are feminists asking for special preferential treatment for women, and the stripping of the rights of men. Feminism is what what feminism does, and that is what feminism does, and has been doing for a long time now. It doesn’t matter what you think feminism is, or what it was. What it is now, and what it does now, defines what feminism is. And right now, feminism is a hate movement.

    • Bewildered

      What’s stopping people from forcing the legislators to rewrite them and make them truly gender neutral ?
      A lot of women will have to step up to the plate along with the men to demonstrate to those idiots that their short sightedness has affected both the sexes and hence the laws need to be revised.

    This is a serious last minute offer for radical feminists looking for a place to gather.
    I offer my home, placed over a beautiful hill in a residential area near Rome.
    Sun and nature, a free bed, wine and olive oil self produced. Free Italian cuisine at its best.
    Everything for free, but you have to pay for your travel.

    It is a serious offer.

    Only one condition. I do not want to participate, but my wife and sisters have to.

    Take it or leave it.

    Ah! so sad, too bad, as with last year they will need to meet in secret, at an undisclosed venue, which is exactly where their bigotry and hatred should be, hidden away from public view.

    Even so I suspect agents of truth will infiltrate and expose to the public the vile and horrific views of the professionals including lawyers and university professors who continue to proffer gender hatred as an acceptable norm.

    • The Real Peterman

      I don’t want these nuts hidden away, I want them out in the open where we can keep an eye on them and learn what they are up to.

    Normally I have mixed feelings similar to what was expressed in this article by MRA London.

    I am a huge supporter of free speech. On the other hand, shutting down this event was not about free speech, it was about whether the Radfems were going to be allowed, in contravention of UK law, to host an event and then prohibit people from attending on the basis of sex.

    Had they simply opened the doors to whoever wanted to attend, they would not have run into this wall, again.

    Then again, doing that would have opened the door for members of MRA London to buy tickets, enter the event and document proceedings.

    It would have prevented the Radfems from making this a secretive function where they could openly plot violence and promote hatred without the pesky problem of public scrutiny.

    So, for the second year in a row, legitimate organizations serving the general public gave them a well deserved bums rush for the door.

    Radfems, this is called fucking your shit up. The sad fact is that you will need to look above at JTOs suggestions, add to that an open policy of inclusiveness so that everyone can hear your ideas, and then you might be allowed to have your little conference.

    In fact, when you attempt to have one next time around I will be on a plane to London so I can attend. I feel 100% certain that I can add an interesting facet to your conference.

    Sending Texas love to MRA London.

    • Kimski

      Yet another case of ideologues demanding the right to have women only gatherings, while denying men the same rights, or even safe male spaces.

      It is quite obvious why, when you consider the level of hatred some of them engage in, when out of public view.

      More projections, and even more ‘do not as I do, but as I say’. Seems to be a pretty consistent theme with The Society of Eternal Victimhood, actually.

      Here’s some news for you, grrlz: I have never ever attended a meeting behind closed doors comprised of more than three males only, where the theme of the discussion was how to chain women to the stove, much less the ‘extirpation’ of them.

      Most of us are rational enough to recognize it wouldn’t benefit us in any way, so what would be the point?

      It’s time you get rid off that specific projection, ’cause unlike you we don’t mention women more than casually, and even if we do, it’s mostly in a subtle reflections over the things you do and say.

  • http://www.mralondon.org Andy Thomas (aka “Andy Man”)

    Debate was not shutdown – the Radfem conference was to be held in secret without debate. In fact, we had the debate by turning up at the venue and raising this publicy.

    Before hearing the news, I had just written an open letter to the London Irish Centre (but never sent) urging them NOT to cancel the booking. We had every intention of turning up and using the event to help communicate our message because this was, actually, a great opportunity to do so. We never asked for the event to be stopped, but only raised attention to it.

    So, finally, I’d just like to thank the Radfems for this. Nothing but love for you!

  • Eriu

    @ Andy.

    Well done to MRA London for being the catalyst that opened the eyes of yet another public organisation to the hidden agenda of radical feminism. I understand your thinking behind writing to LIC and advocating that the conference be allowed to go ahead but as a publically funded body the LIC has legal obligations to ensure that it abides by the law. Allowing it to go forward would have breached the “Equality Duty” imposed upon it as a registered charity, by the Equality Act 2010.

    I realise I am going to sound a bit partisan here, when I say this but as an Irish citizen – Yaaay for the London Irish Centre as well.

    My understanding of this whole incident is that the London Irish Centre employs an organisation called “slicedevents” to manage its venues, and the person with whom Agent Kildare communicated with was the “London Irish Centre Venue Manager” of that organisation. Which is affiliated with an organisation called Off To Work. – http://www.offtowork.co.uk

    Sliced Events@SlicedEvents

    “Sliced Events are delighted to provide exemplary event management and catering provisions to all clients at the London Irish Centre.

    http://www.londonirishcentre.org/venue-hire

    Once the London Irish Centre became aware of the nature of the “group” who had been booked into their venue by Ms. Tarah Cunynghame, and their legal obligations, by the efforts of MRA London, they moved swiftly to cancel said booking, in fact within the space of a few days.

    My partisanship? I am an Irish citizen and I would very much like to believe that my fellow Irish men and women once made aware of the vile ideology of the radfem “group” immediately took steps to disassociate themselves, and an organisation that represents Irish people in London from these “persons”

    Yes, the London Irish Centre receives funding from several public bodies, in particular FROM Ireland, and it is possible that pressure was brought to bear because of an inevitable PR disaster that would have ensued from giving tacit support to such a vile “group” but I believe that the journalist who phoned Black Fedora said the reasons were “ethical”.

    The London Irish Centre has been a beacon of hope for many many Irish men and women who have found their way to the UK since the early 1950’s, and has NEVER operated a policy of distinguishing between the needs of men and women.

    I also believe that because the London Irish Centre is now aware of “goals” of this “group” they could become allies in London, reaching out to the wider population of not just Irish people who call London home but our British friends and neighbours?

    One of the goals of the Men’s Human Rights Movement is to inform and educate is it not? To expose the feminist movement for its lies, deceptions and misinformation?

    What better way than for a European Conference of Men’s Rights? What better place to hold it than the London Irish Centre?

    There is a statute that stands on the main street of my nation’s capitol, the inscription says:

    “No man has a right to say to his country: ‘Thus far shalt thou go, and no further’; and we have never attempted to fix the ne plus ultra to the progress of Ireland’s nationhood, and we never shall…..”

    Charles Stewart Parnell

    http://multitext.ucc.ie/d/Parnell_in_Cork_January_1885

    One of the things that I learnt growing up was that the boundaries were not just physical but mental, that no one has the right to tell you what to think, tell you what you can or cannot do, but most importantly tell you what you are.

    Feminists are forever telling, not just men, but everyone what their boundaries are, how far they may or not go, what defines them – it is time for them to learn, YOU do not stand as guardians of a human beings “personhood” YOU do not fix the “ne plus ultra” (the highest point that can be achieved) of any human beings progress because they are, in your diseased minds a “reviled sex” you have been “shown the door” twice now, is it not time you got the message?

    YOUR “message” is an affront to human dignity, a stain on the progress of humanity, a toxic and poisonous attempt to divide humanity into two camps of bitter enemies to the destruction of ALL humanity. It is a vindictive and corrupt programme to stand in the way of all human beings to achieve their own individual “ne plus ultra” for the simple reason that YOU can never hope to achieve this yourselves.

    Anyway, if I may just indulge myself one more time, yaaaay to the London Irish Centre for doing the right thing, and WELL DONE to MRA London for outstanding activism.

        I applaud the actions of my fellow Irish men and women who were informed of your “agenda” of hate by the Men’s Rights Activists of MRA London, and acted swiftly and decisively to cancel your booking and send a clear message that you are NOT welcome.

        Perhaps you should have informed yourselves of the history of The London Irish Centre before you tried to sneak your way in?

        The London Irish Centre was first set up as a shelter for Irish MEN who had fallen on hard times.

          Well last year after Conway Hall cancelled their booking – they went ahead later in July and from a thread in mumsnet it was held @ Birkbeck, University of London . It was kept quiet for obvious reasons and my guess is that The London Irish Centre booking is actually a ruse to help cover their tracks and make us believe they have put all their eggs in one basket.

          • http://www.imnotamensrightsactivistbut.wordpress.com ImNotMraBut…

            I have been wondering about this – given that Campden is just about most wrong headed Borough of London to hold the event in. It has the Hot Potato issue of highest Hate Crime in London and dealing with that is a Strategic Priority – so doing to London Irish Centre is either desperation and paucity of opportunity or a Political Move to create controversy through the fears of #Hate #Crime!

            There is no indication that RadFem2012 did go ahead other than a single reference to Birkbeck College London, and I can’t see how some such as the Dogged and Delicious Cathy B would be able to not Crow over any form of victory. It’s a Moral Imperative and Devotional Obligation within the High Church of RadFem to show any injury to the Patriarch … and rub as much salt as possible into any perceived wound.

            I don’t know why they don’t just go into the ex-foliating business and do pedicures. Feminist Vegan Dead Sea Salt Foot Rub and Pedicure (Vegan Cup Cake Optional) – It’s a marketing dream.

            Hi “ImNotMraBut” Yes that is true as far as that MumsNet thread goes but I since found another MumsNet thread dedicated to that very topic called “London Radical Feminist Conference, July 2012
            (34 Posts) ”
            Gail Dines and Sheila Jeffries are mentioned as two of the keynote speakers – as it happens I did find a video of Gail Dines purporting to be from the Rad Fem July 2012 Conference and it does seem to be in a lecture theatre but other than that there is nothing in the video I saw which confirms the exact date and location.
            Your right though there has been little crowing of the event if it did indeed happen on the other hand I have seen it mentioned outside of mumsnet and Birkbeck judging from some of it’s past talks does seem a credible choice by the radfems. So I guess the jury is out on that score so far.

          And all from looking at one web page with a Virtual Machine set up to catch odd and anomalous net traffic, and activity that really has no place on-line.

          Again I advise the use of TOR – and any odd activity should be considered malicious and changes to system settings in any way seen as evidence of hacking and treated as such!

            Now that is stooping to very low level, but not unexpected from the feminists.

            In addition to using a proxy, either temporarily disable JavaScript while visiting that site or add that site to the browser’s JavaScript exception/Blacklist section. This would make your browser immune to virtually any attack.

        Question. What can someone do to you with your IP address besides locate you? What damage can they do?

          It might make some of our prominent members who still have to protect their identities at risk of exposure.
          According to my IP search, the one she is asking for is in India somewhere – so I am guessing someone is smart enough to use a proxy server

          hack your computer to steal private data or plant viruses/malicious software
          Even with adequate firewalls/antivirus you’re never 100% safe from a good hacker who has your IP address.

    Gender Identity Watch is a blog devoted to tracking legislation and case law that attempts to codify “gender identity” into law and to override protections based on sex.

    I kind of wish these radical feminists would be allowed to hold a meeting. Then we could have someone slip inside and record the proceedings to show the whole world what they are about, sunlight being the best disinfectant and all.

    Radfem, the radical feminist group whose members espouse a fascist, sexist and violent ideology

    And transphobic. They strangely use the term ‘women born women’ very often. Why very often? Because they think trans women are going through sex change operations just to suppress female hegemony by infiltrating women-only spaces. I kid you not. And, unsurprisingly, I’ve seen the word ‘pure’ used quite a few times.

    • Aimee McGee

      Transsexual people threaten the whole idea of gender being a social construct – that’s why the Rad Fems hate them.
      Gender and sex are both genetically determined. We can work against our genes, but it is an uphill struggle

    Sheila Jeffreys has to be one of the most vile persons on this Earth. Her hatred for normal healthy biological male sexuality knows no bounds. That she is a professor at one of the most prestigious universities shows just how anti-male and ideologically bound universities are. Universities these days are simply about people putting forth their social views disguised as rational thought based on fact through the use of false, morally bankrupt and advocacy research.

    To me mates (guys and gals) across the pond.
    I hoist a flagon in your honour.
    It is utterly shameful that the Irish center would permit such an organization within their walls.
    I am glad you helped them (London Irish Center) see the true agenda of the radfems.
    If the radfems want to speak their filth let do it standing in a proper spot, on top of a manure pile.
    Cheers.

    “Should there be any serious concerns we will of course side with caution and not go ahead with the booking” – LIC.

    It seems that the #RadFem2013 group are a bit apoplectic – and they are attempting to kill Twitter Feeds and any other route to reality they don’t like being communicated. After claiming that they are under attack from MRAs and that the LIC is in fear of these mass mad men and women with rape in their hearts and eyes filled red with aggression and terror … YAWN!

    Well things will come out, such as this lovely communication from LIC and concerns expressed about the RadFems – From the Twitting Trans Goddess Sophia Banks @sophiaphotos

    The Twit – https://twitter.com/sophiaphotos/status/325728583668596736

    The TwitPic – http://t.co/QqMz0TKEDN

    The last line is a Killer – “Should there be any serious concerns we will of course side with caution and not go ahead with the booking”.

    Now this is from March 2013 (Last Month), before MRA London raised issues and concerns – so it’s been clear that LIC have been aware of concerns for at least a month, dealing with Concerns and even having to liaise Campden Council (Most Probably on Licencing Laws for both booze and venue operation) as well as dealing with the Policies of Campden Council on #Trans #Hate and through the Policing Partnership with the Met Police.

    The Booking is not confirmed – and would not be confirmed until all necessary enquiries had been completed. … and then more concerns are raised like Icing on a cake and the Icing gets called nasty, because they want to hide the cake filled with #Trans #Hate.

    It isn’t hard to find out that there is high concern that reported Homophobic Hate Crime in the Campden area has increased in the last years, as has Hate Crime In general. It’s a hot spot in the London stats and being acted on long term.

    As such, there is an across organisation strategic position on reducing any and all hate crime. I wonder how Police and Campden council view having a group that promote #Trans #Hate organising events in the midst of long term Strategic Work to protect the residents of Campden?

    Aint it odd that in all of London the #RadFem2013 chose to supposedly book their event into the one region on London where Hate Crime is a hot potato and a Strategic Priority … when they could have chosen no many other places (If they could get through red tape and a quick Google Search).

    It’s almost as if they set out to fail so they could raise the Victim banner over their dwindling corps and claim Oppression and Victory as they march on into oblivion. It is so “Marxism for Dummies – the revolting handbook”!

    Of course, dealing with multi party liaison from venue to police and council to interest groups like The Camden Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Forum is a registered charity no. 1107855 and a company limited by guarantee no. 05132434. – http://camdenlgbtforum.org.uk/ …. Well it all takes time – there have to be meetings – there has to be research – and there has to be recorded position and reason above the screamer of “They Have Cooties”. It’s an adult, mature and rational way of dealing with issues and Business: getting the result that is from cool heads and not just Frothing Mouths filled with Fornication, Verbal Autocunnilingus and Autoanilingus .

    RadFem are so serious about their message they can’t even be bothered to form a company to provide validity and even a good image – but then again if they did, here in the UK, they would also have to comply with so many laws they would be like a Turkey turning on the oven themselves, plucking and then diving for the Roasting Tin whilst singing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.

    It’s odd too how the RadFem2013 have an organising committee so they should have some grasp of Public Administration, Public law and Politics – or does that get pushed away when it comes to discussing the vegan none oppressive carob cup cakes – and where do you stick that fist for decoration?

    I do know that last year some claimed that RadFem2012 went ahead at Birkbeck College, University of London. It is very odd given that as a state funded body they would have to meet all obligations under The Equality Act too, and so having a group and speaker such as Sheila Jeffreys would be a touchy issue. I do hope that fibs were not told to get a foot in the door?

    As time passes and more fibs get told, when there is more deception and more disguises worn, people do get to know all about it and they can spot it all too and shut all doors before they are even knocked on.

    Also using the net for Propaganda is a fools errand – the old ways of screaming and seeking attention on paper are gone – the Hyper-link can slay an Army of lies and liars at a click. People are also not as stupid as some wish to think – and the contempt on the net leads to Super Highway Road Kill. Cest la Vie

      My guess is that if it did indeed go ahead then it is likely that they dropped their overt opposition to anyone other than “women born” from attending. If such was the case it gives all the more reason for keeping it “secret squirrel” as that way they run less risk of “undesirables” turning up and facing them with a quandary.
      That would then leave them with the actual content of the speeches but both Gail and Sheila are experts in couching their meanings in dense language so maybe hoping to “wing it” as they say.
      It would be good if we had some contacts at Birkbeck who could in fact confirm if such an event did go ahead or not and if so it it is possible that Birkbeck would consent to another such hosting.

    Apparently Ms Brennan has been in the wars before about her “views”

    A petition was organised by http://planetransgender.blogspot.ie/2012/07/catherine-brennans-sorry-for-you-dick.html

    “The Petition asking that Gonzaga University Remove Cathy Brennan as liaison To ABA’s Commission on LGBT”

    And in July 2012:

    “I contacted the office of Robin L. Rone Director, American Bar Association Commission on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity the morning of July 21st and was told Brennan has been removed from the position of liaison to thet commission.

    This has been a short (thankfully) and highly successful action made possible by you! Thank you!”

    The petition and some other instances of Ms. Brennan’s “activities” are posted here:

    http://www.change.org/petitions/chair-aba-business-law-section-gonzaga-univ-school-of-law-remove-cathy-brennan-as-liaison-to-aba-s-commission-on-lgbt

    She sure does know how to “make friends and influence people” doesn’t she? What was it she called the legitimate protest actions of MRA London?
    Oh yeah “terror tactics”!

    “Attorney Catherine (Cathy) M. Brennan Partner at Hudson Cook LLP has used her position as a lawyer to repeatedly harass, intimidate, bully and embarrass a portion of the community that she has been entrusted by the American Bar Association to help, transgender and transsexual peoples.”

    And recently on Twitter, she has taken to calling anyone who describes a trans woman as a woman, a rapist.

    What a lovely example of intellect and humanity she is.

      So if you accept the law of the land “Gender Recognition Act 2004” and accepts that a person who by law is a woman is a woman, then they are rapists?

      So It starts from the person who made it law (That would be The Queen when she gave Royal Assent 1 July 2004) and works on down to everyone who has accepted it since it came into force 4 April 2005.

      So basically every government and statuary institution is a rapist – and the Boarders of the UK are guarded by rapists – every business in the UK having to comply with the law is a rapist.

      Does anyone think she may be looking for an excuse to have all of RadFem2013 cancelled? Evidently the UK is just such a Phallocentric Rapeocracy it’s just not safe for any Wimmin to ever visit!

  • Max Cade

    I guess the goal is that every man, boy and hetero woman be declared a rapist and incarcerated so that KB and her Radfembots can all go and live safely and radically on Lesbos forever….

    Gotta love that Millie Tant!

    You see what good things come to us when we protest like what was done on the doorsteps of the venue?

    We should learn from this. March, protest, demonstrate…do as much public outcry as possible and not only will our will be more likely, but the media will be forced to cover our issues.

    If this is a turning point, it is because “we” protested.

    It is time for massive protests of anything allowed via special preferential treatment for women which is against men and boys that is illegal, violent, shameful, bigoted, and shortsighted.

    If we had done this with many of the things already entrenched but illegal/unconstitutional and that promote misandry then perhaps our fight now would be easier.

    For example, the VAWA?
