Julie Bindel speaks at numerous conferences about female victims rights. I’m not a big fan of Bindel after she said, ““I don’t have a problem with men disposing of their genitals, but it does not make them women, in the same way that shoving a bit of vacuum hose down your 501s does not make you a man” in 2004.
Right there I’ve stopped caring about your stance because you’re a fraud in my opinion. You cannot argue victims rights and deny a medical condition. Clearly, you’re not really interested in ‘abuse victim’s rights” you are interested in the right victim’s rights.
Having said that…I was interested in her once again when I read an article that stated she pulled out of a speaking engagement due to ‘rape and murder threats’.
It is scary to receive these kinds of things. I’m aware of that. I get that. I find it cowardly to pull out of an event because of it. I can’t imagine how many threats the President gets, or the Queen, or any other person in a position that has an undesirable opinion. They still showed up.
She pulled out of an event because she’s a coward. She picked on the transgender
community because they’re an easy target. She is not a role model. She is not someone I want discussing victims rights. She just made herself a victim. “Oh I can’t speak on this because I’m afraid the thing I stand against will happen to me.”
Give me a break.
I can’t decide if I’m more disgusted by her reaction to the threats or that human beings still use this as a threat. “Show up here and I’m gonna rape you” who the F writes that? Who can sleep after they say that? What kind of deplorable human does that?
What is wrong with people? I’m getting really jaded and disillusioned with the human race. Why do we still think that because you can overpower someone physically you have the right to torture them mentally? Bindel should’ve seen those threats for what they really were–a cowardly cry. Instead of pulling back the curtain and showing the little man working the levers she gave power to the threats. Shame…shame all around.
