PENARTH CANDIDATE EXPELLED BY PLAID CYMRU OVER “TRANSGENDER” COMMENT

Plaid Cymru Leader Leanne Wood has espoused the pro-gay LGBT cause by wearing a “Pride” T-Shirt. 

At an internal disciplinary hearing, the ever more politically-correct Welsh Nationalist Party – Plaid Cymru –  has decided to “exclude” one of its former Penarth council candidates – firebrand campaigner Anne Greagsby.

Former Plaid Cymru council candidate Anne Greagsby has been “excluded” from Plaid Cymru

The outspoken Ms Greagsby has already provoked rage amongst the LGBT community –  and the alphabet-soup of other sexual self-identifiers –  by daring to say that “no women has a penis” – an observation which is anathema in the world of sexual politics.

Plaid Cymru, which is now in thrall to similar avant-gard sexual policies as the Labour Party, has upheld a complaint about Ms Greagsby made by one of its own staff – Mabli Jones.

Plaid Cymru’s “discplinary panel” have told Ms Greagsby that the statements she issued were “potentially damaging to the public reputation of the party” and that the conduct  complained about “did amount to discrimination on the grounds of gender reassignment” . Ms Greagsby is to be “excluded” from Plaid Cymru for a period of 12 months.

One the the politically-correct Plaid Cymru rules which Ms Greagsby is deemed to have infringed

In response to the verdict of the disciplinary panel,  Anne Greagsby says “I was accused of transphobia and of abusive language against certain trans people by a member of Plaid Cymru’s staff, Mabli Jones.  It was pointed out that Mabli [Jones]  was previously on Stonewall’s staff and is presumed to advise Leanne Wood on transgender matters.” [“Stonewall” is the pro-gay-rights campaigning organisation]

It appears, however, that the specific category of “transgender” referred to in thehearing, does not appear in Plaid Cymru’s current official list of  so-called “protected groups”  – an omission which might well give the party difficulties if the matter goes to appeal .

Ms Greagsby – who was refused the right to have legal representation at the hearing – also says the Plaid Cymru disciplinary panel was unable to confirm whether or not it had adopted “Stonewall”’s definition of “trans”.

Ms Greagsby is joining colleagues in London tomorrow for “silent demonstration “at Westminster Magistrates Court in support. Details are on https://t.co/EcdeROlFrB

    The ‘alphabet soup’ as you call it isn’t an homogenous force as sometimes seems. In some places the ‘G’ bit has been expelled, and often doesn’t have that much in common with ‘L’, never mind ‘T’ ‘Q’ or ‘I’ (the last of which are often in the 1-2% of the general population who are born with an indeterminate gender.) These last Mrs Greagsby and her ilk confuse with people who wish to change gender. Little known fact – most transsexuals (not to be confused with cross dressing entertainers) are heterosexual. So yes a great alphabet soup of human genes, and to hector the smallest and weakest as Mrs Greagsby has is to be disrespectful. And possibly bullying, and bullies, however big and loud have to be stood up to. Especially when they recommend public bodies in the U.K. use fund raising materials from the American so-called ‘religious’ Right.

    But, your alphabet soup is just human beings, really. Be nice .

    • Max Wallis says:

      surely the confusion lies in Stonewall’s definition of “trans people”:
      An umbrella term to describe people whose gender is not the same as, or does not sit comfortably with, the sex they were assigned at birth.
      Trans people may describe themselves using one or more of a wide variety of terms, including (but not limited to) transgender, transsexual, gender-queer (GQ), gender-fluid, non-binary, gender-variant, crossdresser, genderless, agender, nongender, third gender, two-spirit, bi-gender, trans man, trans woman, trans masculine, trans feminine and neutrois.
      This is what Mabli Jones appears to be introducing into Plaid as well as Leanne Wood’s writings https://www.leannerhondda.wales/inclusive_feminism
      PS watch out “JPo”: your calling Anne “Mrs” Greagsby equals “misgendering”, which is a hate crime according to the trans-cult. Not “nice”.

    • Charlie says:

      A woman is an adult human female.
      Females do not have penises.
      The penis is a male sex organ.

      And for your information, I find this incessant gaslighting, bullying and silencing of women offensive and discriminatory. Woman is not a feeling in a man’s head. It’s not a costume or a performance. Sex is objective, material reality. And being born female has objective, reproductive, societal and experiental consequences for all who are born female in a male-dominated world. That’s why we need unique legal protections – the sex-based rights now being attacked directly and indirectly by people like you in actions such as this.

      As females we have a right to define ourselves – in language and in law – in a category of our own, separately from males. With a name to ourselves (woman: adult human female; as it exists in every dictionary in the world), a language of our own (such as mother or breastmilk) to define our physical & social reality and our own sovereign spaces.

      But I do understand – as someone recently said – that bullying women to accept boundary violations is far far easier to do than expecting men to accept changes to their definition of masculinity.

      Just as long as you don’t think that we will ever go away or stop talking about or fighting this misogynist, regressive ideology. You are mobilising hundreds of thousands of women like me who have never been politically active to go out and campaign for women’s rights. I went to my first ever women’s meeting because of crap like this. And what a heady feeling it was to meet so many hundreds of angry women, most who like me had never campaigned for anything in their lives.

      So thank you, I guess, for reminding us in the Year of the Woman how little things have changed since the suffragettes used their rage to fight for women’s rights, how much we have lost already and how important it is that we use this newfound rage to fight for our rights again.

    I thought we lived in a Democracy with freedom of speech?
    I don’t agree with her comment, but if you threaten to Silence people expressing a personal opinion, go and become a Politician in Russia as that is where you belong.

    • Peter King says:

      The old freedom of speech chestnut. So-called freedom of speech does not include offensive speech that targets specific groups of people including those of a particular religion or nationality, race or sexual orientation.

      • Max Wallis says:

        Have you been taken in, Peter, by the trans-cult? Even Pope Francis defended freedom of expression following muslim fanatics’ attack on French satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo”. Of course we’re allowed to offend Arlene Foster’s DUP religious fundamentalists and their catholic opposite numbers (if any still exist). Freedom-of-speech includes freedom-to-offend. The trans-cultists are threatening our freedom of speech in trying to outlaw phrases like “no woman has a penis” and “woman = adult human female” as offensive to them and therefore “hate speech”.

      • Anne Greagsby says:

        Wrong. Remember Charlie Hebdo. Under international law, the right to freedom of expression also protects speech that some may find shocking, offensive or disturbing. Importantly, the right to freedom of expression means that those who feel offended also have the right to challenge others through free debate and open discussion, or through peaceful protest

      • Frank Evans says:

        Peter, Freedom of speech does include offending people. If it isn’t then some of your Labour rants which offends many a sane person should be banned.

      • Peter King says:

        Peter Church. Please point me to any of my “Labour rants” and your comment may have some relevance.

      • Frank Evans says:

        Are you alright Mr king?
        You appear to be responding to someone else.
        Maybe I’m confusing your rants with others of an equal left leaning tilt 😅
        It might come as surprise many on here don’t hold Labour in the greatest regard anymore.

      • Peter King says:

        Just noticed that I inadvertently addressed my comment to Peter Church. It should, of course, have been addressed to Frank Evans. Nevertheless, your views are interchangeable so my invitation to point out any “Labour rants” from me may be taken up by either or both of you. Anyway, of course free speech may cause offence, and your right to free speech often does cause offence. However, it is unacceptable when it is used to denigrate a group of people simply for being who they are. It is, I suppose, in order for Ms and Mr Anne Greagsby to present a united front but I’ll leave it to other people to adjudicate on their argument.

  3. Peter Church says:

    This trans-gender nonsense has gone too far, next thing we’ll have women with penis’s looking after little girls in the girl guides.
    Or how about a man convicted of rape and then moved to a women’s prison only to be convicted again!

  4. Christopher David says:

    I’m personally worried about the cross breeding of Homo Erectus. Apparently many of us are the offspring of two ape species…… and it’s spreading! When will the police make the first arrests and the PC para’s rush to defend. Plaid could kick the defence off with a crossbreed toolkit. A language pack for the Neanderthal minority, national counselling and religious reality workshops for the shocked smoke throwers and wailers. It will happen- everything is happening!

  5. Papa Lazarou says:

    You must go for diversity training comrades. .The agenda must be upheld..no individual just state.

  6. Lesley says:

    So thats another party she’s been expelled from. I’m guessing it’s their fault though and not Anne’s

  7. Messiah Mark (aka Mark Foster) says:

    You read this stuff and you realise how low you once great British have become. You are in the gutter. It has taken 70 years since the end of the Second World War. You have to ask yourselves how did it happen, was it caused by one particular group of people? Whatever the answer, it certainly cannot continue. You desperately need a great leader, a Messiah, who will shut down all your democratic institutions and consign all these people and their attitudes to concentration camps and the Dustbin of History.

    • snoggerdog says:

      true enough mark. in my lifetime, petty stuff on tv & social media,planet earth is a wonderment but us humans dont deserve to live on it.

  8. Max Wallis says:

    Anne is the first casualty of the transgender cult infiltrating Welsh political parties. Women in the English Labour Party have been expelled for opposing men being on all-women short-lists, simply when they self-declare as women. The Green Party assisted David Challenor and his self-declaring son/daughter Aimee to accuse and harass trans-critics (halted when David was convicted of serious paedophile offences this summer). Leanne came out with the trans credo “transwomen are women” in January which received a torrent of argument from feminists with a few approvals from trans fans. Leanne wouldn’t reply and hasn’t agreed to meet representatives of women’s campaigns like “Fair Play for Women”, but moved further as in your picture to identify herself with Pride Cymru, which appears taken over by the trans cult (Lu Thomas, speech https://www.pridecymru.co.uk/2018/05/).
