Justice prevails in the case of the young man who punched and beat Maria MacLachlan in Hyde Park on September 13 of last year as she was en route to a discussion of changes to the legal rights of women caused by a proposed re-write of the UK Gender Recognition Act. The discussion was hosted by women’s group We Need To Talk.
Tara Flik Wood (born Tanis Wolf) had posted on Facebook his intent to inflict violence on feminists before committing the attack, and his assault was captured on video by at least three people.
Wolf launched a public defense campaign “#FreeTheSheWolf” apparently based on the Nazi “sexploitation” B-movie “Ilsa: SheWolf of the SS”.
The transgender community widely supported Wolf/Wood’s violent actions, including many high profile trans activists such as Roz Kaveney, Ruth Pearce, Owen Jones, Shon Faye, Katelyn Burns, Bex Stinson, Zinnia Jones, among others, who considered the assault of Maria MacLachlan as a type of male “honor” crime against a woman they suspected of not adhering to their gender beliefs. No transgender rights organization, LGBT group, or transgender activist publicly condemned his assault.
Wolf was accompanied to court by Ananya Jaidev, an Oxford graduate in Literature who is reportedly herself under investigation for assaulting a woman outside a different February 2018 discussion on the impact to women’s rights caused by proposed changes to the Gender Recognition Act. She allegedly struck and snatched the eyeglasses off the face of a woman exiting the event. Ananya Jaidev is a member of fringe group Sister’s Uncut. The group was started in 2014 as a direct action protest against government cuts to women’s services, but rapidly degenerated into a venue for posh young people to demand that strangers affirm the indefinable “gender identities” of those who believe reproductive classification should be determined by personality.
Other supporters of Tanis/Tara Wolf/Wood outside the courtroom included the unidentified blonde woman who told Times reporter Janice Turner “I’m happy they hit her” as well as a throng of Antifa men wearing masks to conceal their identities. Worth mention were a couple of basement dwellers outfitted in full combat gear who brought their pit bull for support.
The transgender warrior tried to claim in court that he was terrified that photos of himself would be used to horrifically “out” him online as shamefully trans, but he had a public Facebook account where he was “out” and also a crowdfunder e-begging for plastic surgery money. The day after he attacked Maria he posted a succinct update to that crowdfunder, a death threat to feminists: “#DeadTerfs“.
On the first day of the two day trial, District Judge Kenneth Grant ordered the victim to pretend in court that the man who punched her was not male.
The Telegraph reports:
He said: “The defendant wished to be referred to as a woman, so perhaps you could refer to her as ‘she’ for the purpose of the proceedings.”
Ms MacLachlan replied: “I’m used to thinking of this person who is a male as male.”
Even the prejudicial court couldn’t hand wave the overwhelming evidence though, and so:
There it is. If you’re a 26 year old man with a hairdo and some lipstick you can punch a 61 year old woman in the face whenever you suspect she doesn’t really believe you are actually a woman. LGBT lobbying orgs will support you, and trash your victim. Transgender activists will embrace you and contribute money to you. The male judge will order the woman you punched to pretend she thinks you are female. You will pay a £400 fine and serve no jail time and no parole. Consider it the price to pay for your honor.
On the other hand, as @MayDay4Women opines:
A £430 doesn’t seem like much. No community service. No jail time. But, importantly, it means this violent man is barred forever from working with vulnerable groups, so blocked from working in schools, care homes etc. and now has various travel restrictions.
So at least that’s something. Until he changes his name again and gets a Gender Recognition Certificate and his records are sealed to “protect his gender identity”.
No wonder these guys hate their “dead names”.
But we’ll remember. And in time, we’ll undo the harms legal “gender recognition” perpetrates on all of us of the female sex, all of the Maria MacLachlan’s of the world.
