Last month, FPIW was approached for help by a well-known and radical progressive feminist.
This person, once deeply embedded in the political left, asked if we would be willing to help them blow the whistle on a story that the left was deliberately choosing to ignore:
One of the transgender community's most vocal activists, who has appeared at the White House, United State of Women, and across numerous television programs, admitted to raping another individual in March. Specifically, this trans woman (biologically male), raped a trans man (biologically female). Yet, despite this reality, and in total disregard for the victim, the entire story has been swept under the rug by the media.
Read an excerpt from the gut-wrenching article here:
"For reasons of personal safety and livelihood, I can’t tell you who I am. But I can tell you this much: I’m a progressive feminist who has spent years working on the front lines of the left. I have opposed conservatism my entire political life in the most strident of terms; under other circumstances, I wouldn’t admit to even reading this site.
Yet, I’ve known for a while that questioning the official narrative of transgender activism (a cause championed wholeheartedly and without question by nearly everyone on the left) can get you blacklisted from media and political work.
People I thought of as friends and colleagues have turned into thought police, and anyone who dares to question the official line is intimidated into capitulation and silence -- or forced to find another line of work. So I’m writing you like this, here, to ask you to think carefully about the public safety impacts of the story you’re about to read.
On th, 2016, there was a certain rape. Let me be more specific: a prominent transgender (born male) activist raped another transgender (born female) person and bragged about it on the Internet.
Both the details of the event and the larger circumstances matter, because the truth matters.
Cherno Biko is a transgender woman. As Co-Chair of the Young Women's Advisory Council for New York City, Biko is deeply embedded in a movement that strongly invests in forcing all public speech to contort itself around the idea that transgender women, who are biologically male, are instead biologically female and always have been."
