What’s Current: UK NUS officer under investigation over allegations of public indecency

What’s Current is Feminist Current’s daily news roundup.

  • Jess Bradley, a trans-identified male serving as Britain’s first transgender student officer for the National Union of Students (NUS), has been suspended from his role over an investigation into whether he posted pictures of himself engaging in lewd acts in public places, after screenshots were shared from an anonymous Twitter account. Bradley, a frequently cited proponent of instituting self-ID for men wanting access to women’s spaces, is represented by the prestigious law firm, Carter Ruck, which says releasing his name is an invasion of Bradley’s privacy.
  • A homeless woman in the UK says she has been attacked and robbed on the streets around 30 times, as well as sexually assaulted in mixed-sex shelter accommodations.
  • Cricket Australia has sacked a Tasmanian woman for campaigning on social media for abortion access, after the only abortion clinic in Tasmania was closed.
  • Three women were non-fatally stabbed at a 40,000-strong abortion rights march in Chile by hooded attackers. Several men are in custody.
  • The Welsh government has identified 150 children — mostly girls — between the ages of two and 17, who were trafficked into the country for slavery and sexual exploitation over the last 18 months.

    I know. It’s disgusting. It’s like having a White Pride parade or a Heterosexual Pride Parade. I am hoping she’s just like Lauren Southern whose your to stir up controversy here in Australia was a flop and all her tactics to confect outrage on the streets went down like a lead balloon…

    LOL! “Rubbish transvestite” Jess Bradley!

    I’m not sure how moral I think donating one’s kidney is. It seems more like ignorance of bodily function and a desire to be another self-sacrificing woman. We have two kidneys for a reason: As we age our kidney function decreases and having two helps to keep us in good health. My RN husband now works in dialysis and three of the nurses at the clinic are totally opposed to kidney transplantation. And not because it means they have jobs! They’d rather see no one needing dialysis or a “new” kidney.

      I would never do it but there is some evidence of kidney disease in my family during later life. I don’t agree with it either maybe moral is not the word but self-sacrificing as you stated. I had to listen to my mother defend my brother’s fainting during blood donation (so he fainted one time so he can’t donate ever again?) while I had been donating for a few years but stopped because it was making me ill (probably due to low iron, which makes sense in women). I agree with keeping both kidneys. But society seems intent on guilting people into donating everything from milk to bone marrow.

    Or Marion the pervy librarian. Or he is misinterpreting his gran’s fashion sense. I really don’t know.
