    this event and these people are a bunch of fucking cissexist shitbags, should not be posted as “queer liberation” unless you intend to shut this shit the fuck down. The group that organizes it doesn’t even allow trans* women to comment on their website: http://radicalhub.com/comments-policy/ . Transphobia and cis-supremacy will never bring liberation.

      Umm. Not familiar with most of these folks, but Lierre Keith’s credentials are shot to hell. DGR says enough, but the incident in SF should also raise some alarms. She sucks for a multitude of reasons. If you’re going to continue to promote this event on Grey Coast, it at least should be as a call to action to bring another perspective to the event and not an endorsement of it.

    I saw this posted on facebook and could be wrong rethinking how that was or was not contexted… but, if it is just a bunch of shitbags, then posting it here might bring their shitbaggery up for more to see. If something is done about it, perfect. – *fox
