UN Official Warns Of The ‘Increasing Trend’ Toward Trans Activist Violence

 A UN Special Rapporteur — a job that entails monitoring, promoting and raising awareness on a particular human right — warned about trans activists who have championed using violence to achieve their ends.

Reem Alsalem, who monitors violence against women and girls globally, defended women who speak out in favor of women-only sports contests, women-only bathrooms, and women-only prisons and warned of harassment or worse from trans activists.

“There is an increasing trend that I have been observing,” Alsalem told The Daily Mail. She urged nations in the West to “ensure that the freedom of speech and thought, including on the issues of sex, gender, and gender identity be protected and upheld.”

A series of recent events have crystallized fear of trans activists turning violent.

In late March, a woman claiming to be a man murdered three 9-year-old children and three adults at Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee. The woman was armed with three guns including a semi-automatic rifle when she stormed into the school she once attended and opened fire. After the incident, police searched her home and recovered a sawed-off shotgun and a second shotgun.

In April, outspoken 12-time NCAA champion swimmer Riley Gaines was reportedly assaulted by a group of trans activists at San Francisco State University after she made a speech against allowing female trans athletes to compete in women’s sports.

TikTok creator Tara Jay, who claims he is a woman,  posted a video (later deleted) threatening to use guns against anyone who dared to “stop me from going into the women’s bathroom,” adding, “It will be the last mistake you ever make.”

Blogger Kayla Denker, a man claiming to be a woman, issued a video in which he reloaded an assault rifle multiple times while staring into the camera.

Warning that the trans activists were aligning with hard-left groups, Julio Rosas, the author of “Fiery But Mostly Peaceful,” said, “Trans activists gravitate towards these very far-left groups, because they share their anarcho-communist type ideology. They view the U.S. as systemically racist, that it’s subjugated queer people, and that states passing laws against child mutilations is part of a trans genocide. And they’re fighting back.”

Kara Dansky, the president of Women’s Declaration International in the U.S., was attacked in California when she was protesting against the state’s prison system permitting trans women convicts to be housed in women’s prisons.

Asserting that the trans activists who attacked her were men, Dansky said, “It’s inevitable that one or more women who stand up for women’s sex-based rights is going to be killed. It’s hard to grasp how normal this is, and how frequently women are on the receiving end of violent threats from men.”
