After just 24hours, GO Media have pulled down a billboard which displayed simply the dictionary definition of the word ‘woman’ along with the website address speakupforwomen.nz.

Adult Human Female BillboardDespite a recent High Court judgement declaring that Speak Up For Women cannot rationally be described as a ‘hate group’, the same vexatious complainants who have been harassing the women’s group for years have managed to bully a media company into bowing to their demands.

“We’ve been here before and I won’t lie, it is exhausting. We have made it clear from day one that our issue is with law and the conflation of sex and gender. We have never wished harm on trans people and quite frankly, if these activists have proof that we have it is time they shared it, Speak Up For Women’s spokesperson Beth Johnson says.

“We are told that these activists speak for the most vulnerable group of people in the world, but the power they wield in local and central government indicates that they are simply a powerful lobby group. They certainly don’t speak for the trans people who have shown up to our events in support of our position.

“Told by their lawyers that they cannot shut down our event, three Wellington Councillors – including the Mayor Andy Foster – have decided to use their positions to have the location of our event lit up in trans flag colours. We would have no issue with this were it individuals exercising their own freedom of speech, but this is the power of the council trying to intimidate us again.

“We are just a growing group of women who want to discuss our legal rights. We are not seeking to harm anyone and in fact are simply advocating that the existing law should remain. We are bullied, silenced, and intimidated by people who are never challenged to supply proof of our ‘crimes’.

“We will not be silenced. We will hold our event. We will continue to advance conversations about the law and how we can deal with the tensions between biological sex and gender identity in practice.”

    Thank you for all the hard work you are doing for us SUFW. It is a constant battle and very tiring.I cannot believe the access to those in power that this Ideology has.
    When a General Practitioner in England can have the same sign taken down on his sayso and then say that this definition is hateful and a woman, ‘Is anyone who identifies as one’…..
    We should all know that we are in big trouble

    What happened to freedom of speech? This is a clear factual statement from probably the most UniversaL of English dictionaries. How is it in any way offensive?

  5. I have just emailed the Wellington Mayor to suggest that (a) he looks at the information on the sex self ID proposed legislation on the Speak Up for Women website to learn what the issues are with this bill and (b)he might find it helpful to actually attend Thursday’s meeting at the Michael Fowler Centre to hear at first hand just what women are concerned about.

    I think I said something too about the right to have open and free discussions on government legislation too, but that one may just pass him by.

    I’m an English transsexual. I wish we had saner activism. This faux-fragility is very damaging to our interests, and incredibly alienating and alarming for women. There is no good reason why your poster should have been removed, and I’m sorry to see such a degree of institutional capture in a country I’m very fond of. All the very best wishes for your campaign.

  8. Just the power of the free market.

    One must ask what objective you had for putting up the billboard in the first place, and where you are getting the funding from to do it.

    1. Our objective was to raise awareness of sex self-ID legislation, and the impact that redefining ‘woman’ in law will have. We’re entirely funded by grassroots donations.

    Fully support you and what you are doing. This insanity regarding biology is an insult to women all over the world. We must stick together and not be silenced where ever we are. Love from the UKXX

  12. Speak Up for Women speaks for me, an adult female person who my whole life I have had to fight for my rights for private spaces away from men (people with penises) and those who declare themselves to be women but are not. Gender identity is not something that should be sanctioned by law. Yes, Trans people deserve to be protected from discrimination just like everyone else. But the powerful Trans lobby (and organized pedophiliacs)are trying to erase sex-based rights for women. Do not allow yourselves to be cowed by these misogynistic organizations and destroy our, (female)protection and benefits and rights in the name of liberalism. Do not change the law from sex based identification to gender based.

  14. Quit defending them then.
    Stand your ground with courage never defensiveness; you’re not wrong.

  15. Where do the trans activists get the money? Where do they get the power and influence?
    It is not from the public.

    This group is sinister. Which is one good reason they should be confronted at every turn.

    1. Seriously, dying to know, who IS funding trans-activism here? I don’t even know who funds Rainbow. It can’t all be from donations, most people I know won’t even donate to rescue almost extinct animals.

  16. Congratulations and well done with the billboard. Getting it removed by TRA’s will only draw more attention to their madness. Admire your courage. All power to you.

    Read Jennifer Bilek’s research on the origins of transgenderism – it’s being pushed by a small group of globalists (primarily Rothblatt, Pritzker, and Soros) intent on pursuing eternal life via transhumanism.

    No quarter for trans degenerates. This evil must be destroyed.

    Thank you so much for all of your hard work. Please fight the good fight. It is crazy that biological sex and gender identity are being fused together and this lobby that attacks women for just wanting to safely be women. Please keep speaking up – we need this across the world right now.
