Labour suspends male activist who stood as women's officer 'because he identifies as a woman on Wednesdays'

David Lewis is on the list as a candidate women's officer for his Constituency Labour Party in Basingstoke

A local Labour party has suspended a man who previously made it onto the list of candidates for women's officer because he "identifies as a woman on Wednesdays", under their "self-id" rules.

In order to stand for the women-only position, the candidate has to self-identify as a woman, but there are no other stipulations about gender.

David Lewis, a Labour activist, told the Spectator he identifies as a woman "on Wednesdays, between 6.50am when my alarm goes off and around midnight when I go to bed."

Some feminist activists have raised concerns about self-identification, arguing it could cause men to stand on the all-women shortlists the Labour uses to improve gender equality. They have tried to bring a legal challenge against the party, saying where transgender women do not hold a gender recognition certificate, they should not be allowed to stand in posts the law reserves for women.

Mr Lewis said he stood as candidate to: "inform the CLP, and maybe some other people, about what this policy means, about what happens when you say that someone’s gender depends only on what they say and nothing else."

Straight White Male – How the elite hide amongst the sea of SWMs
Regicide
8 hours ago



By Regicide

Online media outlets have recently reported that a comedian Josh Denny has faced a Twitter storm of criticism for comparing the label ‘straight white male’ with the ‘n’ word. Josh believes that the SWM term is used to offend and diminish those that could be assumed to fall under the label.

Identity politics has become one of the biggest movements and influencers of society in the 21st century. Many people today feel compelled, even obliged to become an activist for some identify category or ‘box’. LGBT+, BAME, Feminism, Environmentalist, Veganism, there is an angry and oppressed community just ready and waiting to recruit you into their ranks. However, once the recruits have stood in line under their chosen flag, what’s left? With the power of elimination, we have now found a new ‘identity’. The Straight White Male. Unlike many of the other identities, this group are held up as the perpetrators, villainised with abusing their ‘privileges’ and suppressing all others. A common enemy is born. And it’s a big one, as the SWM make up the vast majority of the population in the western world, sharing that status only with straight white females, who conversely are not considered perpetrators but in fact victims of the SWM.

This attempt to create another category in identify politics does have some significant flaws. Not least the fact that the vast majority of those who would fit the bill for SWM in no way relate to it. There is no common ‘brotherhood’ amongst the SWM community. There is no insidious secret collaborative conspiracy against all other identities. Most people who could be considered SWM are left confused, turning out their pockets and looking under the couches for this apparent ‘privilege’ that they either didn’t know they benefited from or have now assumed they’ve lost somewhere?

It is true to stay that historically and in present times, the vast majority of perpetrators that have oppressed others, committed heinous abuses and are guilty of the accusations from the other identities, have been overwhelmingly straight white males. But these SWMs have one very distinctive difference. They are members of the elite. Your average every day, common SWM is more likely to have been subjected to those same appalling behaviours or an unwitting accomplice either by accidental association or abusive threats and coercion. History shows that the common SWM has been subjected to slavery, feudal oppression, extreme violence and mass murder, economic abuse and misplacement, unjust persecution and imprisonment and total oppression of basic human rights. All at the hands of their ‘brothers’ from the elite SWM. It’s also true to say that the common SWM has stood side by side those from other identities who have fought for their freedoms and rights.

It is dangerous to attempt to group a large number of innocent and unwitting people into the same category of the perpetrator, based solely on sharing a similar appearance, gender or background. Not all Germans were Nazi’s, most Muslims are not terrorists and most SWMs are not abusive, oppressive perpetrators. Not only does it give rise to yet further discrimination and abuse that is surely not needed in this world, it actually provides a mass identity for which the elite SWM perpetrator can hide amongst in plain sight. Similar to the Netflix series ‘Money Heist’, the perpetrators can blend perfectly amongst their innocent and unwitting victims by merely wearing the same clothes and masks until no one can tell which is which?

We come back to the most pertinent question, who benefits? Who benefits from creating another divisive category? Who benefits from the diversion of having various identities seething and pointing fingers at the common SWM? The reality is that the SWM sub-group simply doesn’t exist and has become nothing more than a convenient distraction from the truth. It is not about race, gender or sexuality. It is about money and power, it always has been. The elite v everyone else. The 1% is the only identity we should be the most concerned with. Don’t fall for it.
