‘UN Women’ Says Transgender Men are the Most Oppressed Women

Some years back, Martin Neeves, a British chap from the East Midlands, went to a psychic, talked to a spirit and decided that deep inside he’s really a woman named ‘Katie’.

Fifty years ago, he would have been a tabloid footnote, but things being what they are, Martin, a mediocre photographer, has become a DEI hero, reaching new career heights, spreading awareness as a “Trans” ambassador, conducting diversity training and appearing on the BBC..

Within a year, Martin had won the “British Diversity Awards Hero of the Year 2023”, become a “DIVA Awards Unsung Hero of the Year Finalist 2023” and was honored as the “Outstanding Female LGBTQIA+ Champion 2023”.

Now Martin will be one of the British delegates to the UN Commission on the Status of Women.

The UN Commission dedicated to “the empowerment of women and girls” is running low on them.

UN Women had picked Munroe Bergdorf as its UK champion despite his rants about white people, posting, “Honestly, I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes, all white people. Because most of y’all don’t even realize or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of color. Your entire existence is drenched in racism.”

According to Reddux, a feminist site that chronicles transgender issues, Bergdorf had been dumped from the UK National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NPSCC) “when it was discovered that had invited children to message him privately on social media”.

But Martin and Munroe are not the only UN Women figures confused about what a woman is.

Amy Bryant, a USA delegate to UN Women, “identifies as queer, trans, and disabled”, and uses “they/them” pronouns.

Tate Smith, an “award-winning Trans activist & speaker”, who started out as a woman and is trying to become a man with doses of testosterone and butch haircuts, is a delegate to UN Women despite not wanting to be a woman.

Between the men who want to be women and the women who want to be men, what is UN Women doing anyway?

The entire premise for UN Women was the equal participation of women in decision making, but as the 68th session of the Commission on the Status of Women approaches, how can women participate equally if they’re being replaced by men?

The UN Women internal resource guide has four pages of sexual identity definitions, but fails to define what a woman is. It does claim that a “trans woman is someone whose internal sense of gender is female” and that the most oppressed women around are actually men.

According to UN Women, “two groups of women who continue to be among those most marginalized are trans and intersex women.”

Forget Afghanistan, consider the plight of Martin Neeves from the East Midlands. In Muslim countries, women have limited civil rights. In some they can be locked up for even trying to leave the house, but UN Women would like us to believe that Mr. Neeves is one of the most oppressed women out there.

But if men who claim to be women are really so oppressed, why are so many of them doing it?

In times past, women would pretend to be men for the social and economic advantages. These days it’s more lucrative for men to pretend to be women while announcing it to the world.

In the space of a few years, Martin Neeves went from obscurity to national fame.

Do all of the awards, titles and economic opportunities coming his way now that he’s “Katie” really suggest that he’s an oppressed minority? Had Martin stuck to occasionally cross-dressing in the privacy of his own home would his career be better or worse off than it is today?

Men who claim to be women, UN Women argues, are the most oppressed because “it is asserted that transgender women are not ‘real’ or ‘biological’ women’” and “some even believe that transgender women are a threat to the rights of and spaces for cisgender women”.

Does this really suggest that men who claim to be women are oppressed or that women are?

When women who are living in domestic abuse shelters and prisons try to keep men out, is it because they’re oppressing the men, or because they’re the ones who are being oppressed?

A little over a decade ago, the UN produced its Bangkok Rules handbook on women in prison which described female prisoners as uniquely vulnerable, urged that women be examined by female nurses or doctors, and cautioned about the importance of privacy and dignity for women.

For example, personal searches should “only be carried out by women staff”, it cautioned.

UN Women has decided to throw all of that out and argue that women have no rights as a sex, only as a point of view that is entirely a figment of theirs and everyone else’s social imagination. Anyone can pretend to be a woman which means there really isn’t such a thing. As John Lennon would have sung if he were around today, “imagine there’s no women, it’s easy if you try.”

UN Women insists that “all individuals have the right to self-determine their own gender and that doing so does not infringe on others’ rights, nor does it attempt to erase or negate the experiences of any woman.” If I were to suggest that UN Women doesn’t really exist, the organization might have issues with that, but it’s okay to suggest that women don’t exist.

The UN was built on the principle of defending national sovereignty and rights that are a matter of human invention, but biology is not a matter of consensus or perspective. It simply is. Everything that the UN promotes has less objective reality than the existence of women.

UN Women has decided that anyone can be a woman, but in that case who needs a special UN Women organization? Why not just get rid of the extra space and call it UN Women?
