Every time I think I am going to take a blogging hiatus, some new bit of twanz crazy crosses my path.
This latest meets all the criteria:
- Twanz – check!
- Crazy – check!
- Appropriation – check!
- Threats against radfems – check, and check again!
So a group(?) [which could just be one lonely loon] has been set up as the Trans Panther Party for Self Defence. Gosh, that sounds a bit familiar, oh yeah, a direct rip-off and appropriation of the Black Panther Party for Self Defence. Originality is never Twanz’ strong suit.
Just who are the TPP? 
We are the Trans Panthers Party
We are a focused, physical and socio-political defensive, direct action group for people who are of TS/TG/Other Gendered Identities and Intersex. We are respectfully modeled after the Original legendary Black Panther Party.
We also act as one of several organs to facilitate a political, legal, community voice and united front against oppression of our right to medically correct a sexual birth defect, identify with an inherent gender or to live by our own determination. We have no choice but to create our own community resources against oppression.
We want to institute community programs for getting transgender, transsexual people, jobs, comprehensive healthcare and legal resources such as the ACLU and Attorneys Guild of America.
We will assertively stand up to discrimination, stigmatization, social marginalization, hate crimes, erasure and genocide against us in any form, this is to include our physical and social self defense by any legal means necessary. We can function on the street, community levels and up.
We are a growing, loose, chapter based organization. Chapter leaders and members belong to a particular chapter, and a decentarlized national and international core committee coordinates networking, national campaigns and communications between the chapters. Working groups form on an as-needed basis and give report-backs to the core committee. We do not support any ego based over all leaderships.
Each individual chapter can network and cooperate with other organizations in their area who are sincerely dedicated to the safety, equality and advancement of Transgender, Transsexual people.
Let it be known, that If you are a bigot who hates and wants to control or attack Transsexual, Transgender people because of who we are, you would not want to do that!
Live and let live. peace, love and power to all the people!
“respectfully modeled [sic]” eh? And hijacking intersex again, with the old “correcting birth defect” bizzo. As well as in the name of transsexuals (most of whom now distance themselves from the transgender nutters). “Modelled” has two Ls btw.
But the real action happens on their Facebutt page, lets take a look and see what they get up to:
Organising flash mobs, no real harm in that. (I wonder if anyone turned up?) And keeping up with twanz cases in the news. Again, no biggie. But what do they plan to do at these flash mobs?
It sounds like they are just a little confused on the term “self defence”, bringing along converted weaponry is an “offensive” tactic, not “self defence”. No matter, twanz are no stranger to the inside of prisons. Now we see why they seem to end up there in droves. So who do the TPP target in all this?
So basically any radfem that asserts they want a FAB-only space away from these violent pricks (and seriously, who wouldn’t?), and feminists who question the necessity for SRS surgery. Sadly, twanzsquirrels have been ignored.
But wait! There’s more!!!
The screen grabs are from a newsfeed from the FB page, and have been deleted from the FB page since then:
See, magically disappeared from their Facebutt page. So putting together the information on this Facebutt page, where they talk about converting weapons, and naming two specific people in amongst all that, two women who are not public officials, who have done no physical attack on any tranz person, and who compiled a letter to the UN about the rights of born females – whilst not denying or threatening trans’ right to exist – that is pretty much Threat City there twanzloons.
The TPP are still singling out Cathy Brennan and Elizabeth Hungerford, with this post less than two weeks ago (click picture to enlarge) :
Article text (my underlining):
Trans Panthers serving trans abusers with Human Rights crime charges
September 9, 2011 Los Angeles, CA
The Trans Panthers Party for Self Defense is publically declaring several individuals and organizations as human rights criminals.
The will also have writs of Human Rights violation charges served upon people such as self proclaimed feminist Cathy Brenanan of Maryland, including organizations and businesses who perpetuate an atmosphere of gross violence and intolerance towards transsexual, transgender people through their actions, promotion, initiation or influence.
“This is one of the tools we are working to bring online, to battle against the staggering oppression being waged by these pigs against trans people” says Anna Kayla Ward, Assistant Chairperson of the Trans Panthers Party. “It’s also meant as a wake up call to others that we trans people absolutely refuse to be beaten,silenced, forced into incorrect gender roles with our right to our inherent identities stomped out”. According to the Core Committee, the party’s leadership group, the named offending pepple and organizations will be served with legal papers, detailing the human rights charges. Copies of the writs will be on file with the International Criminal Court in the Hague, Netherlands and with the local courts within the areas (states, sities, provinces etc) where they exist.
Yep, complete and utter nutters for declaring one letter, expressing the concerns over the rights of born-females, as a “human rights violations”, “human rights criminals” and “trans-genocide advocates”. The TPP might actually want to look up the ICC website to find that:
The International Criminal Court is a permanent tribunal which prosecutes individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.
The ICC is the first permanent court governed by the Rome Statute. It was established by 110 member states. The Court does not replace national criminal courts. It can only start a prosecution if national systems are not able or willing to effectively organise prosecution themselves.
So the TPP are going to look rather silly, not providing the actual evidence that national criminal courts have failed to prosecute for “human rights violations”, and hopefully the ICC will write back giving the TPP a stern warning for wasting their time and not following due process and protocol. Of course the local authorities are going to be a bit pissy for their time also being wasted, by the TPP reporting the “crime” of letter writing to the UN.
Of course, the TPP are by no means unique in the harassment of Brennan and Hungerford. Who can forget such classics as Casebeergate, Monica Roberts‘ so-called “didn’t notice” defence, as well as the actual outing transjacktivists have used (resulting in Hungerford’s declaration). ETA: (18 Sep 2011): at the end of the post I have added the screenshots of Roberts and his “didn’t notice” lies. Note that in the screenshot that started it all, Roberts is clearly interacting with Casebeer.
Click on images below to enlarge – the third image contains the actual outing by Kelli Anne Busey, which only got redacted by Endablog’s editor five-and-a-half weeks after it was posted:
Of course this Busey lists on his FB page that he is a journalist for Planetransgender, a blog that put up this implied threat (or libel, whichever way you want to take it):
My first impression of the photo used on this post was that they were slicing the throat of Cathy Brennan in order to silence her, but it appears upon reading the text that they dubbed Cathy Brennan the “Angel of Death” and implied that she was either literally or figuratively cutting the throats of TWs, which could not be further from the truth, given the actual content of the letter written to the UN. Fairly gruesome imagery, and a window into how the tranzjacktivist mind works – very scary indeed. Don’t forget the TPP making all sorts of home-made offensive weapons. None of them seem to be able to spell either “Cathy” or “Brennan”.
Add to this, the endless posts and comments over at Bilerico about the Brennan-Hungerford letter to the UN, as well as endless posts and comments at Pam’s House Blend. Most of the commentary is inaccurate, claiming that Brennan-Hungerford want to deny tranz their human rights, blah blah blah. Gee, I would hate to see the twanz reaction if we said anything near what they accuse us of. Mere disagreement does NOT equal a ‘human rights violation’.
Tranzjacktivists (the TPP specifically) also lump radfems in with actual males, who do actual violence to tranz – they are out to get us with the same venom and implied violence as going after actual abusers and murders of twanzwomen:
Because they cannot seem to tell the difference between letter writing or blogging, and actual physical violence, it is indeed worrying that they are ‘going after radfems’ with the same vigour as violent, abusive and murderous males.
The ongoing threats, harassment, lies about, Brennan-Hungerford and their letter to the UN has been going on for the best part of two months now, with no real sign that it is going to stop. Coupled with the new ‘group’ TPP and their penchant for violence (under the guise of self defence) and threats (implied and direct), either this has to come to a close, or it is time that radfems (particularly Brennan-Hungerford) became a little more litigious and sued their tranz asses for all the cyber-stalking and cyber-threats.
Perhaps the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund (TLDEF)  will bail out the nutters such as the TPP as they get themselves into trouble with the authorities for 1) wasting courts’ time, 2) inciting violence via mobs and individual action, as well as making home-made weaponry, and 3) the eventual civil suits from radfems (and possible criminal offences) for harassment, stalking, outing, threats of violence.
As you can see, radfems now have quite the collection of threats against them. Rather handy as evidence. There is no opposite body of evidence of radfems making real or implied threats against twanz (apart from calling them stupid, or nutters, and that is only me) but within the context of what they are doing, there is reason to believe that transjacktivists are mentally unsound, so “nutters” is a bit of a fair call.

ADDENDUM (18 Sep 2011)
Here is the Monica Roberts pretending that he didn’t notice Casebeer’s murder/harm threats.
The key paragraphs are, paragraph #2 (my underlining):
As some of you know earlier Sunday morning I was in a chat with a longtime freind of mine that discussed the odious UN paper that seeks to bar trans rights coverage to transwomen. That friend had a negative interaction a few years ago with one of the authors of that paper that she never apologized for that spurred that person to express some problematic language that I didn’t catch until it was brought to my attention.
The lies are underlined. Cathy Brennan had no previous knowledge of Casebeer until this year (nor any previous interaction I believe). The direct lie by Roberts is that he “didn’t catch [… the] problematic language”. Never mind that he was in the thick of Casebeer’s comments on his facebook page.
The eighth paragraph (my underlining):
So at this time, I apologize to Cathy Brennan and to anyone who may have been offended by those remarks. While the remarks were not authored by me, still I should have caught it and admonished the person at the time it was said, and that’s my mistake.
Well, it’s just lucky you aren’t a wooden puppet made by Geppetto, because that nose of yours would over-balance you, Roberts.
Nor have I even touched on the justification-fest that was Casebeer’s “apology”. I really must get around to Tootsifying him from his drag days, he made Arnie look good.

ADDENDUM #2 (18 Sep 2011)
The “If” post, posted both at The Transadvocate and ENDAblog:
The Transadvocate version was more disturbing, with a bit of an implied threat via the graphic.
Pay toll? It is a bit like “pay the price” isn’t it? An implied threat, certainly intimidation to “stfu or else [you deserve what is coming to you]”.
Of course the post is actually, apart from disparaging Brennan and Hungerford’s standing in the profession (defamation perhaps?) goes on to imply that the recent violence against M2Ts around Maryland/DC is due to the Brennan-Hungerford letter to the UN. Last paragraph:
If an obnoxious, hate-filled, know-nothing lawyer co-pens a screed against trans women in an attempt to negatively affect international policy regarding the rights of trans women and then, in the weeks following release of the screed, there was a noticeable uptick in violence against trans women – including violence committed by government actors – in the same area as, or an area adjacent to, the more obnoxious of the two hate-filled, know-nothing lawyers in question…
Again, fairly libelous. Because frankly, do we – or anyone – really believe that the local cop, the abuser, the murder(s) of the recent crimes in the Maryland/DC area even read the letter to the UN? For starters, the perps in all of these crimes are hardly likely to read radfem blogs, so how the hell would they have read that letter? Far fetched is one thing, but implication is quite another.
And of course, Monica-my-wooden-nose-is-soooo-long, is there posting on the ENDAblog version of the post:
But this harassment doesn’t stop. Whilst looking up the ENDAblog version of the “If” post, I came across yet another, posted just yesterday (the ‘highlights’ below):
The post is littered with “you took it upon yourself” and finishes the volley with “…is no one’s fault but her own”and the finale of “Sorry, folks… No special rights for trans-exterminationists.”
“Trans-exterminationists”? Excuse me, where is the actual PROOF of that in any way shape or form? That entire post is littered with abuser-speak, blaming the person for whatever happened or happens to them. Abuser-speak, seems to come rather naturally to twanzjacktivists, doesn’t it? Co-incidence, I think not.
Don’t forget, ENDAblog has the tagline:
“A great LGBT community deserves full inclusion”
Rather ironic, they are targeting two “Ls” of the LGBT. Fucking hypocrites.
