    Tribunal bans female-only lesbian events.

    A state tribunal has rejected the right of same-sex attracted people to hold social functions that exclude transgender people.

    Launceston lesbian activist Jessica Hoyle had sought an exemption from Tasmania’s Anti-Discrimination Act to run female-only “drag-king” shows and other lesbian events.

    The exemption was denied by Tasmania’s Anti-Discrimination Commissioner Sarah Bolt in July 2021, prompting Miss Hoyle to appeal to the Tasmanian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

    In a ruling late last week circulated on Monday, the tribunal rejected Miss Hoyle’s appeal, finding the desire for female-only lesbian events was insufficient justification for an exemption.

    “While the applicants may not wish to comply with the Act and find aspects of its application to transgender and transsexual women irksome, particularly in the context of the event they would like to hold, that is not a sufficient justification,” ruled tribunal member Kate Cuthbertson.

    Ms Cuthbertson SC said arguments by Miss Hoyle claiming “patterns of criminality and nefarious motivations” for transwomen attending female-only events were “not supported by empirical research or compelling evidence”.

    Miss Hoyle told The Australian she was disappointed in the decision and would fight on, if necessary all the way to the High Court, believing same-sex attracted females should be able to exclude “people with penises” from social events.

    “This decision erases the rights of women and freedom of association for lesbians,” said Miss Hoyle. “It is harmful to everyday, average lesbian women and gay men, who just want to be able to meet one another in a safe environment, and not have members of the opposite sex harass us.

    “I’m all for transgenders and transsexuals having their own events, their own spaces, but (they ought) not force themselves on to anybody else’s rights. We are seeing in this country the erasure of women’s rights.”

    However, Rose Boccalatte, of Equality Tasmania, welcomed the tribunal ruling. “This decision upholds the integrity of our gold-standard Anti-Discrimination Act and sends the message that trans and gender diverse people are equally protected by that Act,“ Ms Boccalatte said.

    “It is very welcome to see the tribunal calling out misinformation about transgender women.”

    Miss Hoyle said she was seeking further legal advice but was likely to reapply for an exemption taking into account aspects of the tribunal decision.

    If you didn’t laugh, you’d cry.

    Lesbian dating sites in the UK are now being swamped with pictures of “women”, that is women with beards and protruding Adam’s apples. Except these “women” are “autogynephiliacs”, or in plain English, male perverts, who should be kept a zillion miles away from women and children. These men are groomers, predators and deviants.

    The Tasmanian decision is the inevitable result of liberalism.

    But for all of this, we have only ourselves to blame. I suspect there are quite a few out there who regret their support for SSM and would now vote otherwise. They should regret it, for some of us it was obvious what SSM marriage was all about and this is why I voted NO. The celebration of homosexuality and transgenderism is the precipice on which civilizations fall. You don’t have to be religious to understand that, there are many who aren’t religious yet who understand that this “celebration” of homosexuality, which goes against human evolution, means we’ve actually fallen off the cliff, we just haven’t hit the ground yet. And when we do, it won’t be pretty.

    Women shouldn’t have gone after men only clubs. But too late now.

    I’m confused here.
    A “drag king” show uses females dressed as males.
    A transgender male is a male dressed as a female.
    If the transgender male identifying as a female then dressed as a male, would they still be a drag king? Or would it just be a bloke dressed as a bloke entertaining women.
    A good old fashioned porn and prawn night.
    But who’s coming the raw prawn here?

  7. C.L. says:

    Maybe the best bet for Tasmanian lesbians is to ‘hook up’ with vulva-women at a heterosexual trans-men meet. Have I got that right?

  8. Cassie of Sydney says:

    The common cry among autogynephiliacs to lesbians is…”Come suck my lesbian dick”.

    Pure unadulterated misogynism. But you know, this has ALL been caused by feminism and feminists.

  9. C.L. says:

    And remember this?

    Yeah, that’s the reason.

  10. Lee says:

    Hard for me to feel any sympathy at all for them.

    These lesbians are probably the same sort of people who fought to be allowed to join men only clubs, or failing that destroy them.

    You reap what you sow.

    I voted “no” too.

    We were insincerely and falsely told that SSM was not the start of the “slippery slope.”

    Are they still allowed to exclude men? That is, is this decision opposed only to the exclusion of trans-men?

  13. dover_beach says:

    Sorry, I think that should be ‘trans-women’.

  14. C.L. says:

    Presumably, yes – because the tribunal upholds the regime dogma that trans-‘women’ are actually women.

  15. Dunny Brush says:

    I know a woman who works with a trans woman. Was already an odd bod before courageously telling the workforce he was a she. Everybody was supportive, as is required. But since she started turning up in slacks and make—up, it’s been widely noticed she seems to have a permanent bulge.
