Stop Hate Speech

Here’s the full recording of MP Louisa Wall’s hate speech targeting women during the Pride Hui earlier this week.

The recording was made in secret by a hui attendee who will not speak publicly for fear of the attacks and threats they have already been subjected to. We demand that our MPs promote respectful dialogue on women’s legitimate concerns with proposed changes to the Births, Deaths, Marriages and Relationship Registration Act.

What Is A Terf?

The word ‘terf’ is hate speech used to belittle and threaten anyone who rejects the premises or conclusions of transgender ideology.  It is used to dehumanise and incite violence.

New Zealand deserves better.

  1. The acronym TERF is absolutely not hate speech. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

    1. I agree as hate speech does not actually exist. There is legal and illegal speech only. Offensive speech is free speech unless it breaks the law. However, like other made up terms, it’s intent is to label a group of people in order to try to delegitimize their opinions and concerns.

      1. Totally agree with you, Juana.

    2. Lots of intelligent people disagree with you.

    3. Language is mutable and contextual. When originally self-applied by radical feminists choosing to exclude trans women from womens spaces it was certainly not hate speech. However, when co-opted by the other side and used as a term of abuse and denigration (Fucking Terfs or Terf cunts etc) it easily crosses the divide to abusive and thence a small step to hate speech. Don’t believe that language works that way? Try walking to a room of black people and calling them niggers.

    4. It would be interesting to know your reasoning for this assumption.

  2. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Whatever happened to Jacinda Ardern’s goal of bringing kindness back? Having a different opinion on an issue like self-identification on a birth certificate should not be grounds for exclusion from what was originally a very inclusive movement.

  3. for a speech about the importance of compassion and inclusion where does ‘we don’t want any fucking Terfs’ fit in?

  4. This explains why they don’t want any cops around on the day.
    Whether or not it’s hate speech, it’s not a civilised way to discuss your fellow citizens, I have always voted Labour and thought Greens were the silly ones on this issue but I will stay at home next election if this is what it’s come to.

  5. She’s welcoming her trans sisters. This makes me wonder where her trans brothers are. Gender dysphoria is more common in females, females transition to transmen.
    Is there some systemic exclusion of transmen going on here, or is that that, being born women, they are too sensible to get involved with PAPA?

    1. Where ARE the transmen? Talking about ‘transsisters’ is exclusionary to them! And… ‘fucking terfs’ IS hate speech! The only mention of Lesbian was referring to herself as a being a lesbian, but nothing about lesbian inclusion or ‘lesbians are welcome’. Do we all have to call ourselves queer?

  6. Fair enough, why would she or anyone else want people who dis trans people at Pride? No one wants those people around at the party which literally celebrates gender exploration. Have I stumbled across an anti website?

    I’m a lesbian, and the cold blooded slaughter of a lesbian couple and their son in Oakland, California so traumatized me that I called the suicide crisis hotline twice. A lot of women knew that eventually a transwoman was going to go off on a lesbian. We knew it in our hearts. Transwoman Dana Rivers is on trial in Oakland, California for the cold blooded slaughter of a lesbian family. They were brutally murdered in their own home in the middle of the night, shot and repeatedly stabbed. Rivers is a straight man who transitioned in his early forties. He isn’t gay. He was part of Camp Trans that protested outside of Michigan Women’s Music Festival, a lesbian run event. TRANS AND QUEER CONTROLLED LGBTQIA BURIED THIS STORY JUST LIKE THEY BURY ALL CRIME COMMITTED BY TRANSWOMEN. I’m a lesbian, and I know if a transwoman pulls a Dana Rivers on me, it’s not even going to make the news at trans and queer controlled LGBTQIA media. This is the real face of gender identity politics, not the politically correct face that the public sees.

    Well, at least MP Louisa Wall didn’t wear a red paint splatted “I PUNCH TERFs” shirt like the one worn at the 2017 SF Pride parade. Or, carry a Degenderette baseball bat covered in barbed wire.

  8. I thought it was a sensible and constructive discussion. Why label it ‘anti website’? There is no evidence for that conclusion. Accusatory language pushes people into a defensive position, shutting them up, taking away the desire for free and open speech through fear of intimidation. Is that the object?

  9. Hate speech does not exist, its simply a mask for free speech.

  10. Thank you brave women for your work!
