A 43-year-old lesbian has claimed she’s seen first-hand people who identify as trans women ‘bully’ and coerce ‘naïve and vulnerable’ lesbian girls as young as 14-years-old into a relationship

A 43-year-old lesbian has claimed she’s seen first-hand people who identify as trans women ‘bully’ and coerce ‘naïve and vulnerable’ lesbian girls as young as 14-years-old into a relationship.

Lucy Masoud, an ex-firefighter turned barrister who assisted with the Grenfell Tower Inquiry, from , made the comments following claims that lesbians have faced accusations as a sexual partner.

In total, 66 per cent said they felt intimidated or had received threats in their LGBT groups.  

‘What I’m seeing in clubs are young lesbians, who are a bit naïve, essentially being bullied into having relationship with people who describe themselves as women, who clearly aren’t women,’ explained Lucy, speaking exclusively to FEMAIL. ‘And when they try and say no, or say that’s something they’re not interested in, they are accused of being transphobic, or of being bigots.’ 

Lucy Masoud (pictured), an ex firefighter turned barrister, 43, from London, has spoken out following claims that lesbians have faced accusations of transphobia and threats of violence if they admit they are not attracted to trans women.

Lucy (pictured) claimed she’s seen first-hand people who identify as trans women ‘essentially bully’ vulnerable lesbian girls as young as 14-years-old in clubs and bars into dating them

In reference to the survey, Lucy said ‘that’s exactly what’s going on’ – adding that it’s something she has personally noticed in the last six years or so.

‘You’re getting trans women who haven’t been through any kind of medical transition, who haven’t even attempted to change their appearances, who claim to be trans, or non-binary or gender fluid, who are self-identifying as lesbians.

‘You can self-identify as you want, it has no impact on my life.But the difficulty comes when these people, who are self-identifying as lesbians, then demand that lesbians accept them as lesbians and accept them into their dating circle.

‘My experience of what I’m seeing on the gay scene is that there are lots of very young lesbians, some very vulnerable at just 14, 15 or 16-years-old, who are obviously not attracted to biological men – hence they’re lesbians – who are being coerced into dating trans women.

Lucy continued: ‘I’m a 43-year-old woman and can tell someone to f*** off, whereas young lesbians, who are just coming out of the closest and want to be a part of the community – the gay community which has become the queer community – which is dominated by straight men…it’s those people I really worry for. 

‘It’s those people who are being coerced, just like the article says, into having sex with people they don’t want to have sex with because they want to fit in.’

Lucy (pictured) said she finds it ‘really sinister’ and ‘rapey’ that if she doesn’t sleep with people who are biological men, she’s somehow labelled a ‘bigot’ or a ‘transphobe’

Discussing more of her personal experiences, Lucy noted how she was banned from Hinge after she said she was only interested in people who were ‘biologically female.’

She set up her profile to ‘women seeking women’, and found every third or fourth match was a trans-woman.

Lucy altered her profile to read: ‘All I ask is that you be on time, don’t moan about me getting overly involved in Love Island and that you’re a biological female.’

After declaring her preference, she was then permanently banned from the app for ‘transphobia’.  

‘It was clear that a number of people had complained about my profile saying I was transphobic,’ she said.’You need to remember this is 2020. I’d been out of the closest since I was 16. When I was 16 I could happily say I’m a lesbian and same-sex attracted and that I’d only sleep with women.

‘Now, I can’t say that and if I do, I’m accused of being a bigot and a transphobe which just seems crazy to me that as a 43-year-old woman, I’m less safe now to say I’m same-sex attracted than I was when I was 16.’ 

Lucy also says she’s taken issue with some of the comments made on social media – and specifically referenced those written by journalists Owen Jones and Ash Sarkar (pictured) 

Lucy continued: ‘If you’re an “out” lesbian who will sleep with a biological man, then you’re not a lesbian, you’re bisexual – and that’s fine.But there are people, like myself, who are same-sex attracted, who don’t sleep with people who have a penis.

‘That doesn’t make us a bigot, it doesn’t make us transphobic, that makes us lesbians – same sex attracted.’  

Lucy also says she’s taken issue with some of the comments made on social media – and specifically noted those written by journalists Owen Jones and Ash Sarkar.

In reference to the survey, Ash took to Twitter and penned: ‘Nobody should be pressured into sex with anybody, for any reason.

‘I wouldn’t want someone to feel they had to have sex with me out of social pressure, but it’d be fair to ask whether racism plays a part in announcing every 5mins that they’d never sleep with a woman of colour.’

In response to Ash’s comment, Owen Jones wrote: ‘It’s beyond belief that the BBC published such unbelievably appalling journalism, based on no reliable data and the testimonies of anti-trans activists.You’d expect to find this sort of conspiratorial hate on the darkest recesses of the internet, not on the BBC.’  

Lucy (pictured) branded the wide-spread criticism the survey has received as ‘nonsense’

‘They should be taking a step back and saying, “right, a big chunk of these 80 people have said this is happening and are essentially saying they’re being coerced into having sex with people they don’t want to – which is rape. What shall we do about that and how shall we protect these people?” said Lucy.

‘But they’re not doing that – they’re too concerned with throwing the word transphobe about.’ 

Lucy went on to recall one particularly memorable experience in a bar around three years ago when a trans woman was sexually touching herself inappropriately. 

‘When it was raised with the staff they wouldn’t do anything about it,’ claimed Lucy.’If that was a man or woman who was acting that way you would throw them out. So why is it OK for this trans woman to do it just because they’re trans?

‘Why is it OK for me as a lesbian, who wants to use a lesbian-only space, for various different reasons, to have to share that space with biological men?

She continued: ‘Again, it’s not anti-trans at all.Many of my trans friends absolutely agree with me. Trans people should absolutely be respected and protected in society and have exactly the same rights as we have – and I would march in the street to support that.

‘However, biological man can not be a lesbian and I have absolutely the right not to include biological men in my dating circle, and I have the absolute right to say I would never date a trans woman because I never would. 

‘That doesn’t make me transphobic, it doesn’t make me a bigot, it makes me a lesbian.’

 

BBC is accused of transphobia by more than 8,000 in open letter over ‘propaganda’ article about lesbians who said they felt ‘pressured into sex by some trans women’

By BHVISHYA PATEL FOR MAILONLINE 

The is facing a backlash after it published an article about lesbians who felt pressured into having sex with trans women over fears of being branded ‘transphobic’.

More than 8,000 people signed an open letter to the broadcaster after journalist Caroline Lowbridge described the pressures three lesbian women had allegedly faced from trans women to have sex.

In the piece, Ms Lowbridge attempted to discover how ‘widespread’ the issue was across the country and said several people had contacted her about the pressures to ‘accept the idea that a penis can be a female sex organ’.

The author acknowledged it was ‘difficult to determine the true scale of the problem’ and referred to a survey carried out by the campaigning group Get the L Out – which reported 56 per cent of respondents had felt pressured or been coerced into accepting a as a sexual partner.

Now, more than 8,000 people have signed an open letter condemning the ‘propaganda’ piece and accused the BBC of transphobia.

Jennie, a lesbian who is only attracted to women who are biologically female, said she has been described as transphobic, a genital fetishist, a pervert and a ‘terf’ – a trans exclusionary radical feminist.

SARAH VINE: Evil David Fuller changed my mind on the death penalty 

All my life I’ve believed that the death penalty is unacceptable – a barbaric and out-dated act of vengeance that has no place in the modern world.

But that conviction has been sorely tested.The case of David Fuller, who not only took the lives of two young women – Wendy Knell, 25, and clips Caroline Pierce, 20 -but also admitted 44 charges of necrophilia, involving women and girls aged between nine and 100 in morgues across Sussex and Kent, is beyond the comprehension of most people.

And when I read the account of Nevres Kemal, the mother of one of Fuller’s victims, Azra Kemal, I felt an overwhelming sense of rage on her behalf, and on behalf of the families of all his other victims, which police fear may run into the hundreds.

After officers visited her home to tell her that the lifeless body of her beautiful, vibrant daughter had been violated not just once, but three times, by this monster – and that he had filmed himself doing so – she grabbed the nearest knife and ran to her local police station with the intention of putting ‘that knife straight through his heart because he’d put a knife through mine’.

All my life I’ve believed that the death penalty is unacceptable – a barbaric and out-dated act of vengeance that has no place in the modern world.But that conviction has been sorely tested

Had that been my daughter, my beloved child, I would have done exactly the same.I would have been deranged with grief, blinded by fury, intent on avenging her with no regard for the consequences. It would have felt like the only sane response to such an insane act of depravity.

And I’m afraid that when I read that this poor woman, clearly delirious with emotions no one should have to suffer, was handcuffed and thrown to the floor by eight or nine officers and then confined to a cell for 34 hours, all I could think of was: ‘I wish she’d got him.’

Especially when you realise that the maximum penalty for raping a corpse in this country is just two years.And that life all too rarely means life, and even if it does, people like Fuller are held at Her Majesty’s pleasure – and the taxpayers’ expense – in conditions far more civilised than those afforded to their poor, forgotten victims.

There are some crimes which simply cannot be forgiven, some people who do not deserve the privileges of a civilised society.This man is one of them, an individual of such indescribable evil that he can no longer be considered a member of the human race.

By his actions he has rendered himself subhuman, and he deserves – in my opinion – the ultimate sanction and no mercy.His continued presence on the planet can only ever be an abomination.

That I should feel that way troubles me deeply. Opponents of the death penalty – and, remember, I’ve always been one – will disagree with me, of course.

Hell, a large part of me still disagrees with me.

In particular I have always worried that in countries where capital punishment does still exist, there is a terrible danger that an innocent person may be put to death.

And when I read the account of Nevres Kemal, the mother of one of Fuller’s victims, Azra Kemal, I felt an overwhelming sense of rage on her behalf, and on behalf of the families of all his other victims, which police fear may run into the hundreds

And indeed that has, tragically, sometimes been the case.

But the evidence here is unequivocal.Time and again Fuller filmed himself carrying out these revolting acts, and kept careful records. He has not only taken life, he has defiled the sanctity of death.

Whatever may have driven this man to commit these crimes, the agony and suffering that he has inflicted is incalculable.

There has to be a price to pay, not just for the sake of the victims and their relatives, but for the sake of humanity itself.But there is no punishment on this earth that can meet that challenge.

At the end of the day, it’s simple: men like Fuller who do the unthinkable force us, as a society, to think the unthinkable.

It’s not pretty.But it’s true.

Staff at the Ministry of Defence have been instructed to state their pronouns during meetings. I can’t help wondering what my grandfather, who fought with the Chindits, would have made of that. ‘Name, rank and preferred pronoun, soldier.’ Not sure that would have cut much mustard with the Japanese.

John Major has called the Prime Minister’s handling of the Owen Paterson case in Parliament this week ‘shameful’.Seriously? John Major? Has he never heard the saying ‘people in glasshouses’?

ArchAeologists in Italy have discovered the remains of an extendable slatted bed at Pompeii, prompting comparisons with Ikea.I knew the Romans had a taste for cruel blood sports; but Ikea?

Even they couldn’t have conceived of such torture.

Keep children safe from vile games

After reading the horrific story of Jacob Talbot-Lummis, a 16-year-old obsessed with violent video games who shot a school friend at close range in the face, leaving him with devastating injuries, I decided to see for myself what these games entail.

I spent a very unpleasant evening exploring the darker regions of the gaming world and it turns out that shooting people in the head is the least of it.

The problem is very similar to that with porn: if you’re an adult you are able to differentiate fantasy from reality; but if you are a child with a child’s brain which doesn’t have that capacity, you can’t.So these sickeningly violent games normalise aggression in a way that – as we have seen – can be catastrophic.

On November 19, Baroness Beeban Kidron’s Age Assurance Bill has its second reading in Parliament. The Bill seeks to ensure that Ofcom has the powers to set out a statutory code of practice ensuring that age verification for adult content is both effective and enforceable.

MPs have an opportunity here to do something that will protect future generations from this toxic influence.Let’s hope, for once, they show up and do their duty.

Someone like you…with a £3k bag?

Adele has sparked speculation about her love life after she was spotted in London wearing a ring on her wedding finger.If you ask me, far more questionable is the fact that the 33-year-old singer, left, was carrying a handbag that costs more than £3,000. 

Firstly, I don’t care how wealthy you are, that’s a stupid amount to spend on a bag, especially one that small and boring; and second, if she is going to behave like the accessories version of Imelda Marcos, she might want to drop the coy ‘I’m just a girl from Tottenham’ act.It’s getting a bit much now. 

 

The more I see of Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi (who was instrumental in the rollout of the successful Covid vaccine programme) the more I like the cut of his jib.On Friday he took a swipe at teachers who bring politics into the classroom. ‘Schools should always remember impartiality,’ he said. 

‘Any contested theory should not be promoted… and political groups like Extinction Rebellion should not be promoted in any school.’ Absolutely right.I hope now he will turn his attention to his own department which, it transpires, has handed almost £600,000 of taxpayers’ money to Stonewall over the past five years in exchange for promoting the organisation’s highly politicised trans agenda. 

This crass archbishop is a let-down to all faiths  

I don’t think enough has been made of Justin Welby’s spectacular idiocy in comparing failure to act on climate change to the Holocaust.I know it’s yesterday’s chip paper, and I know that he’s apologised – but how does he get away with it?

And how can we continue to have an Archbishop of Canterbury who not only displays crass insensitivity to other faiths (in this case Jewish people), but who also represents such a let-down to Britain’s ever-shrinking Christian community?

Walkers crisps are the latest to be hit by supply shortages, with demand for certain flavours outstripping supply.Being the mother of a teenage boy for whom cheese and onion represents a major food group, I have been aware of this for some time, after my local supermarket started rationing deliveries. Poor boy has been forced to eat fruit instead. Long may the drought continue!

Georgia previously claimed the star released a sex tape of her online and that the alleged tape had been shared on WhatsApp.

The former couple dated briefly in 2018 after meeting on MTV show The Challenge.

Bear previously dismissed Harrison’s revenge porn claims as ‘silly rumours’ in a now-deleted video he posted online in which he accused her of ‘fake crying.’

Following his arrest on January 15, Bear was then accused of breaking lockdown rules.

After his July 2 court appearance, Bear’s solicitor indicated that Bear intends to plead not guilty to all charges.

Justices adjourned proceedings to July 30 at Chelmsford Crown Court, Essex, where a plea and trial preparation hearing took place.

Tyrone May is SACKED by Penrith Panthers over Instagram post

 star Tyrone May has been sacked by Penrith Panthers over a provocative  Instagram picture he posted after last month’s Grand Final against South Sydney.

A club board meeting on Wednesday morning took the decision to axe May, 25, immediately over the post, which has since been deleted after a furious backlash.

The post appeared to claim the porn sneak had been vindicated despite pleading guilty to filming sex tapes without permission and narrowly dodging jail. 

The pic showed May and Panthers coach Ivan Cleary leaving Parramatta Local Court after he admitted four charges of ‘intentionally recording an intimate image without consent’.

He had met two women online and filmed them without permission before the videos were leaked online.

NRL star Tyrone May has been sacked by Penrith Panthers over an Instagram picture (seen here) he posted after last month’s Grand Final against Sydney Souths

One was covertly filmed in a motel in Coffs Harbour after he hooked up with a woman on Tinder

The second was filmed when May had consensual sex with a woman and three other men, including his nephew George Ragheb and ex-Panthers reserves player Liam Coleman.

The woman asked not to be filmed when she realised the men had mobile phones, and reported it to police when the video emerged months later.  

He escaped prison despite Magistrate Robyn Denes describing May as ‘reprehensible’ and telling him he was ‘right on the cusp of a custodial sentence’.  

He was given a three year good behaviour bond and ordered to do 300 hours of community service. 

Tyrone May (pictured) pleaded guilty to four charges of ‘intentionally recording an intimate image without consent’ in January 2020

Despite the scandal, May remained part of the Panthers squad and played in the last two Grand Finals, including October’s 14-12 victory over the Rabbitohs.

His crowing post-Grand Final Instagram snap was captioned with lyrics from rapper Drake: ‘And the dirt that they threw on my name turned to soil and I grew up out it. 

‘Time for y’all to figure out what y’all gon’ do about it.Love my brothers’.

The woman at the centre of the orgy video – which was posted to Pornhub and an NRL Facebook group – said his post made her relive the trauma of the incident.

‘I had quite a lot of panic attacks, so with this coming back, it triggered that as well,’ she said after the Grand Final Instagram post. 

‘I walk around in Penrith and everyone is looking at me because they know.I’m walking around paranoid 24-7. 

‘He hasn’t learnt anything. If I want to go and [have sex in private], that’s me. That shouldn’t be shown to the world. But unfortunately, it did. Now I struggle.’

Last month the NRL fined May $7,500 and ordered him to undertake further education programs in the wake of the Instagram post.

May attended Wednesday’s board meeting in a bid to save his career but the club opted to terminate his one year deal over the latest incident.

‘As a club we understand our responsibilities to the game, our corporate partners, our members and fans, and the wider rugby league community,’ Panthers CEO Brian Fletcher said.

‘The board observed due process in this matter and considered all relevant factors before reaching its final decision.

‘Panthers will coordinate with the NRL to ensure Tyrone receives access to any support services he needs moving forward.’
