Tranny tales from Canada’s left coast: Is Vancouver losing the battle with SJW activism?

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Social justice warrior activism can sometimes be good for a laugh but I’m often left deeply concerned about what kind of society we’re creating as you’ll see in two examples of SJW culture gone way too far that I’m bringing you from Vancouver.  

Watch as I share one story from UVic where the Women’s centre had to adopt the name “Third Space” so transgender, gender variant, and non-conforming person’s could also have a safe space and another from the City of Vancouver where Mayor Gregor Robertson and far left Vision Vancouver are currently hiring a program assistant who must be part of the “Trans, gender variant, or two-spirit community.”

As you’ll see, it’s hard to know which story is more bizarre.

But, I tend to lean towards the City of Vancouver job mostly because we almost expect a university campus to be full of this madness, but a municipality using our tax dollars to hire someone to serve at best a hundred people or so?

Only in Gregor’s Vancouver I guess.

Drew Warkariuk, this is true. These contrarians have a deep seeded need to garner attention, and would rather live life opposing conventional wisdom etc…, no rational thought or critical thinking in their repertoire. When presented with facts, contrarians still persist with their original oppositional position. Imagine having one at the table during Thanksgiving dinner! Not only will they arrive empty-handed; they will demand oats for the high horse they rode in on, and proceed to ruin every conversation …I have walked away from the contrarian and encouraged other family members to do the same; leaving the person to talk to an empty room.

Tammie people like Andrew think they run the world and decide what is acceptable. They are scum and if given power they are the worst kind of dictators.

Andrew Stephensen, just a quick biology lesson for you: Penis – Male, Vagina – Female, Both – Hermaphrodite, Neither – Mannequin, Postoperative Trans-gendered Female – Male with his penis cut off (see Lorena Bobbitt).

Just realized my post addressing Andrew Stephenson is confusing. Sorry for not properly proofreading before clicking Post Your Comment.
I should have added quotes to A.S. statement concerning Ezra Levant, then a space to denote my reply to what I saw as a ridiculous thing to say.
Here is what it should look like, again, my apologies.

“Tammie, Ezra Levant deliberately places himself in these situations….”

Andrew, What a ridiculous thing to say! Going by your analogy, women who dress immodestly are asking for it!
Hmm, your fellow “sisters” on the SLUT WALK would brand you a hypocrite, and a dangerous one at that.

Correction – should read Hmm, your fellow “sisters” on the SLUT WALK would brand you a hypocrite, and a dangerous one at that.

Andrew Stephenson, I don’t agree with your perspective; and thanks for taking the time to outline what it is.
This site doesn’t have to invent persecution, it’s happening and being reported on.

What Trudeau epitomizes is corruption; misleading the public and bankrupting Canada. My observations & complaints about Trudeau could go on for pages.
Andrew Stephenson, I think there may have been one or two buzzwords you forgot in your post!
commented 2017-04-30 16:32:40 -0400
Andrew Stephenson the persecution is real by the way.
commented 2017-04-30 16:32:12 -0400
Andrew Stephenson sorry but free expression is not putting yourself in a position , your ignorance is ridiculous. And yeah there is lots of people who will be subjected to harm under this phony gender BS. You do not get to pick what matters and what does not. If some freak ever waves his dick around my fiance he will be swallowing some teeth.
commented 2017-04-30 13:49:50 -0400
Tammie, Ezra Levant deliberately places himself in these situations, because a large part of his brand is playing up supposed persecution… seriously, how many Rebel stories are about some supposed persecution of some “traditionalist” opinion? This one is – the “third space” has no impact on people that don’t identify as a nontraditional gender, but the very idea is something traditionalists find uncomfortable, so they invent persecution where none exists.

I get it, Canada’s different in the twenty-teens from what it was half a century ago when a lot of you grew up. That’s not really persecution, just the passage of time. I feel Canada’s the best it’s ever been, and will only be better in a decade, even if some of us are a bit reluctant to let go of the past. As a Millennial, I feel privileged to have grown up in a world of unparalleled potential, and I am optimistic about the future of our country. Trudeau epitomizes this, the ideal leader for a forward thinking, optimistic, pluralistic society.

I am a standard issue cisgender female. Not “confused” at all. The misogyny is out there. I’ll point it out next time I see it, it’s rarely overt around here (though it does exist) but there are places where it’s pretty blatant.

The washroom harassment issue is the most frequenly brought up opposition to “allowing” transgender individuals to use trans rather than cis washrooms (they’ve been doing it surreptitiously for decades) for d As you observe, this isn’t really actually an issue, and even if it were it’s doubtful that perverts are going to a) obey that law or b) only do it in the bathroom.

Andrew Stephenson,
Link to a video you may want to watch. Drew Wakariuk referenced Ezra’s prosecution by HRC, concerning free speech. Ezra is absolutely right! Free speech is for everyone,& the undemocratic left don’t think so. In fact, the left developed a criminal gang to use violence to silence & destroy property.

commented 2017-04-30 03:48:40 -0400
Well, trans people see the washroom thing a little bit differently. To them, it comes down to which gender they feel like.
commented 2017-04-30 02:23:29 -0400
Andrew when they prosecuted Ezra for 900 days , that was against free speech in case you missed it.
commented 2017-04-30 02:22:44 -0400
Andrew Stephenson why is it the girls in Seattle were legally harassed then? Sorry but using your choice of bathroom is not a right, and have you heard of the HRC in Canada? They prosecute free speech. And i see more straightforward hatred against men on the internet. But of course you and the left are fine with that. So spare me your attempt at being a victim as it is pathetic and imagined.
commented 2017-04-29 22:20:40 -0400
Maurice Potvin, I did see that comment by Andrew Stephenson, not male and using a pseudonym due to " a lot of casual misogyny on the internet" Whatever the hell that is!
I totally understand where you are coming from, the planet does seem insane. Thank goodness not everyone thinks evil is good, and good is evil!
commented 2017-04-29 22:12:05 -0400
Andrew Stephenson, please explain your phrasing “casual misogyny”. After explaining, please elaborate on whether your claim of it happening a lot on the internet means you specifically or someone recommended you use a pseudonym “in case” you encounter it or maybe to try and avoid the possibility of being “triggered” by something many would consider slightly offensive. Any misogynistic comments I see on Rebel come from trolls the majority of the time.
commented 2017-04-29 22:07:10 -0400
Tammie, didn’t you read Andrew Stephenson’s post? He’s not a male. He’s a wibleplubin, or a mubilwabin, or (insert your own made-up gender). And cows can fly and the sun sets in a swamp near Pensacola, Florida. Now do you see why I want to get the hell off of this insane planet?
commented 2017-04-29 21:49:17 -0400
Andrew Stephenson, again, bringing up washrooms….what is behind this? I’m asking a serious question.
In all the years I have used washrooms, or stood in line to use the facilities, I have never witnessed harassment in the washroom or been harassed myself. What are you really referring to?
If one day I enter a public washroom and there has been a urinal installed, I will go home, get a crowbar and hammer & absolutely destroy it!
Gentleman, if one day you go to the washroom and find tampons and pads for sale, I recommend you pull the dispenser off the wall and stomp it! If the menstruating men forgot to pack any sanitary supplies, they can go to the store and buy it….
commented 2017-04-29 21:15:04 -0400
Drew, obviously they do have rights, the right to use the washroom and not be harassed. The same is true for everyone. Note that there is no specification of gender here – if you’ve got harassment in the washroom, then that should be addressed directly.

As for free speech, there’s nothing here that interferes with anything that an adult should be saying anyway.

Tammie, there is no confusion. I am not male… I use a male pseudonym because there is still a lot of casual misogyny on the internet. Not “confusing”… unless you’re a conservative, apparently.
commented 2017-04-29 20:42:06 -0400
Drew Wakariuk, my sense is, Andrew Stephenson is gender confused and upset with being a minority; this allows for AS to deflect; and stay in state of cognitive dissonance. Phrasing in another thread led me to this conclusion.
commented 2017-04-29 17:45:40 -0400
Andrew you speak of individual rights and freedoms then you support those who trample on free speech and stop others from moving around freely and those who tax us into oblivion thus limiting our freedom in many ways. So get bent you pathetic hypocrite.
commented 2017-04-29 17:43:13 -0400
Andrew just because you never get any does not mean everyone else is happy missing out on a huge part of being human. And sorry but a gay man is still a man. A lesbian is still a woman.
commented 2017-04-29 17:41:17 -0400
Andrew Stephenson sorry but biology is not a social construct and what about the rights of others? You are talking about SPECIAL rights for a few. What about the women and young girls in Seattle? Do they6 not have rights as well? You are pathetic.

Andrew Stephenson, thanks for supporting William Kay’s post!

Judy White, “A non-transgender person needs to apply for the Vancouver job, then sue them for discriminatory practices when they don’t get hired.”
I like your idea. This person can also bring a complaint before the BC Human Rights Tribunal.

Human Rights, Duties & Remedies
Everyone in British Columbia has rights and duties under the Human Rights Code.

“The Code’s purposes are to make sure that people can participate equally in the economic, social, political and cultural life of British Columbia. The Code does this by forbidding discrimination based on certain personal characteristics in areas of daily life.

“Drew Wakariuk commented 9 hours ago
Andrew is this more of your evolution? LMAO! Now please explain the 32 or whatever genders that you progressives push. I would love to hear you lay that out in words.”

I’d say it’s not evolutionary, but rather cultural (we’ve moved beyond the point where we as a species are purely motivated by reproductive instinct. This is good, as there are already far more people than the planet can sustain for long time periods).
.
Beyond that, individual rights and freedoms apply. They exist, whether or not you like that. Nontraditional gender identities are kinda like ugly haircuts – probably affect your ability to reproduce if that’s something that matters to you (big IF, thankfully we’ve matured as a society to the point where not reproducing is a sensible and reasonable choice), but ultimately your own choice and one you’re free to make.
commented 2017-04-29 09:42:42 -0400
The gender obfuscation crusade and the “gay agenda” are rooted in, and sustained by, Neo-Malthusianism – a powerful political movement comprised of those who believe, or pretend to believe, that nearly all economic and political woes result form overpopulation. Malthus argued for the mass promotion of non-procreative sexual relations over 200 years ago. For more info check out the “environmentalism is fascism” website: http://www.ecofascism.com/

This constant gender garbage is actually a direct assault on God’s creation, and is meant to control society, by destroying as many normal minds as possible. Good is evil now and evil has become good in the minds of the lost and confused.
commented 2017-04-29 07:36:09 -0400
What on earth is wrong with everyone these days?

A non-transgender person needs to apply for the Vancouver job, then sue them for discriminatory practices when they don’t get hired.

How much farther can this trans non sense go?
