Argentina: march organised after lesbian couple attacked

Argentina

A couple of women were attacked by a man at a bus stop in Berisso…

“She was at the bus stop, on the 30th and 163rd streets of Berisso with her partner watching a video, when a man accompanied by a lady and her children watching her, berated her and asked her why she didn’t dress as a man”, she told Télam Sandra Di Seri, of the Darío Santillán Corriente Nacional Front, an organization that includes the attacked woman.

According to the victim, the man then told her “I would kill you, I would have to kill you,”. He spat and struck her face twice, breaking her glasses and hurting one of her ears.

“Then a patrolman approached, but despite the fact that the companion explained to the troops what had happened, they did not intervene,” said Di Seril who did not want to reveal the identity of the assaulted woman since the formal complaint was not yet filed.

Una pareja de mujeres fue agredida por un hombre en una parada de colectivo en Berisso. …

“Ella estaba en la parada del colectivo, en la calle 30 y 163 de Berisso con su compañera mirando un video, cuando un señor acompañado por una señora y sus hijos que la miraba, la increpó y le preguntó por qué no se vestía de varón”, relató a Télam Sandra Di Seri, del Frente Darío Santillán Corriente Nacional, organización que integra la mujer agredida.

Según contó la víctima, el hombre luego le dijo “te mataría, tendría que matarte”, la escupió y le propinó dos golpes en la cara que le rompieron los anteojos y lastimaron una de sus orejas.

“Luego se acercó un patrullero, pero pese a que la compañera le explicó a los efectivos lo que había ocurrido, estos no intervinieron”, agregó Di Seril que no quiso revelar la identidad de la agredida ya que todavía no fue radicada la denuncia formal.

Chile: Corrective rape allegations against uncle of lesbian’s ex partner

Lesbians in Chile

The first complaint of corrective rape against a woman in El Maule was filed this Monday at the Guarantee Court of Talca.

The legal action was filed by the lawyer Rodrigo Medina, of the Legal Clinic of the University of Santo Tomás, thanks to an agreement that exists with the Homosexual Integration and Liberation Movement (Movilh) Maule.

“The incident happened a little over a month ago and where the uncle of our client’s ex-partner raped her and rebuked her for her sexuality while committing the assault,” said the lawyer.

The complainant added that “the subject is free and my representative will testify on Friday. The complaint was made with the aggravating of article 12 number 21 of the Criminal Code Law to execute the crime for reasons of hatred towards sexual orientation.”
(Translated)

La acción judicial fue interpuesta por el abogado Rodrigo Medina, de la Clínica Jurídica de la Universidad Santo Tomás, gracias a un convenio que existe con el Movimiento de Integración y Liberación Homosexual (Movilh) Maule.

“El hecho ocurrió hace poco más de un mes y en donde el tío de la ex pareja de nuestra representada la violó y la increpó por su condición sexual mientras cometía la agresión”, dijo el jurista.

El abogado querellante agregó que “el sujeto está en libertad y mi representada declarará el viernes. Se hizo la denuncia con la agravante del artículo 12 número 21 de la Ley del Código Penal para ejecutar el delito por razones de odio hacia la orientación sexual”.

Lesbian unlawfully deported from UK was ‘gang-raped and fearing for her life’ after removal to Uganda

pn-protest.jpg

A gay woman who was unlawfully deported from the UK has described how she was gang-raped and has lived in perpetual fear since being sent back to Uganda six years ago.

The British government was ordered by the High Court this month to help the 26-year-old return to the UK on the grounds that its decision to reject her asylum claim was unlawful. The landmark ruling could open the door to thousands of similar challenges.

The Ugandan national, who is set to return on Monday, has also talked about the trauma of getting pregnant and having a child, who is now four months old, as a result of the sexual assault she suffered.

20 Lesbophobic Things My Male Friends Have Said to Me

by Amy Dyess

Several of my straight, gay, and bi male friends said those lesbophobic things to me. I’m butch and look very gay, which made me a visible target for sexual harassment. It’s partially why I moved from the American South, where all of this happened. I decided to share because recently the memories have been triggered. I want them out, and maybe writing about my experiences will help other lesbians.

Male friendships are tricky, no matter what a man’s orientation is. As you can see, many straight and bi male friends are really trying to hook up. Gay men project their own fears onto lesbians. Gay men have also groped me in dark, sweaty gay bars. Lesbians have to be careful around all men.

Chile: Lesbian conversion therapy as a child

Chile lesbians

By Camila Toro Aguirre

In spite of the historical advances that the movement for the rights of the LGBTIQ+ community has achieved, conversion therapies are still practiced behind the walls of numerous psychological providers in Chile.
A pseudoscientific method that seeks to “cure homosexuality” psychologically, limiting and repressing any type of sexual orientation that does not conform to heterosexuality.
However, it is proven that there is nothing good in these treatments. According to the World Psychiatric Association, those who attend these therapies often “develop addictions, suicidal tendencies, sexual disorders and depression.”
In Chile in the 2000s, Carmina Vásquez, an accomplished lawyer from the University of Chile and a member of the Lesbofeminist Network in support of the LGBTIQ + community, attended conversion therapy for the first time when she was only 14 years old.
(Translated)

A pesar de los históricos avances que ha logrado el movimiento por los derechos de la comunidad LGBTIQ+, detrás de las paredes de numerosas consultas psicológicas de Chile todavía se practican las terapias de reconversión sexual.
Un método pseudocientífico que desde la psicología busca “curar la homosexualidad”, limitando y reprimiendo cualquier tipo de orientación sexual que no se ajuste a la heteronorma.
Sin embargo, está demostrado que no hay nada de bueno en estos tratamientos. Según la Asociación Mundial de Psiquiatría, quienes asisten a estas terapias suelen “generar adicciones, tendencias suicidas, trastornos sexuales y depresión”.
En un Chile de los 2000, Carmina Vásquez, una realizada abogada de la Universidad de Chile e integrante de la Red Lesbofeminista en apoyo a la comunidad LGBTIQ+, asistió por primera vez a una terapia de reconversión sexual cuando sólo tenía 14 años.

South Africa: Judge upholds life sentences for corrective rape of lesbians

Judge Violet Phatshoane

A man who believed in “corrective rape” for lesbians has failed in an appeal against two life sentences.

Zabathini Jonas, from Petrusville in the Northern Cape, twice raped a 24-year-old woman, and told a magistrate in Philipstown that he “wanted to correct homosexual girls”.

After being convicted and jailed, the 30-year-old father of two appealed to the high court in Kimberley.

Judge Violet Phatshoane sent him packing last week, saying what he had done was “quite repulsive and unpardonable”.

She added: “The so-called ‘corrective rape’ is evil and cannot be countenanced. What [Jonas] did [to his victim] was to pulverise her sense of belonging and self-expression.”

I am Polish, I am a lesbian. I was a brave rebel, today I feel fear above all

Equality Parade

It used to be different.
Until quite recently, I was a courageous rebel. I wanted to go out into the streets, shout, protest, write letters, petitions, manifest, and give in. I had that energy, courage, strength. I was proud of it.
Today is simply bad.
I wake up in a country where every day someone compares me to a paedophile. I turn on the internet and see an ad for a newspaper supplement in the form of stickers with the words: “LGBT free zone”. A wave of fear floods me. Just anxiety, not anger, no anger. Only fear is left in me.
(Translated)

Kiedyś było inaczej.
Jeszcze całkiem niedawno byłam odważną buntowniczką. Chciałam wychodzić na ulice, krzyczeć, protestować, pisać listy, petycje, manifestować, udzielać się. Miałam w sobie tę energię, odwagę, siłę. Byłam z tego dumna.
Dziś jest po prostu źle.
Budzę się w kraju, w którym codziennie ktoś mnie porównuje do pedofila. Włączam internet i widzę reklamę dodatku do gazety w postaci naklejek z napisem: „Strefa wolna od LGBT”. Zalewa mnie fala lęku. Właśnie lęku, nie złości, nie gniewu. Został we mnie już tylko strach.

Spain: Judge remains barred over malicious prevarication against lesbian couple

Lesbians in spain

The Contentious-Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court has confirmed the decision taken at the time by the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) to deny the reinstatement to active duty in the judicial career of Fernando Ferrín Calamita, the judge of Murcia who was sentenced in 2009 to ten years of special disqualification for the “malicious” delay in the procedures for adopting a minor by the wife of the biological mother of the child.

The resolution, of which the magistrate José Manuel Sieira has been a speaker, recalls that the crime of prevarication is one of the most serious that a member of the judicial career can commit  in that it breaches (both) the essence of the Judiciary and the baseline behaviour expected of those who represent it.

Moreover, it distinguishes between the crime of malicious prevarication provided for in article 446 of the Criminal Code, for which Ferrín Calamita was convicted, and that of guilty prevarication of article 447. Thus, he emphasizes that, in this case, “we are facing a crime of greater gravity”, which does the damage to the public service is undoubtedly greater.

The events date back to 2006 when a lesbian couple began the adoption process with the aim of one being recognized as the adoptive mother of the girl that her romantic partner had conceived through artificial insemination.
(Translated)

La Sala de lo Contencioso-Administrativo del Tribunal Supremo ha confirmado la decisión adoptada en su día por el Consejo General del Poder Judicial (CGPJ) de denegar la rehabilitación y el reingreso al servicio activo en la carrera judicial de Fernando Ferrín Calamita, el juez de Murcia que fue condenado en 2009 a diez años de inhabilitación especial por el retraso “malicioso” de los trámites de adopción de una menor por parte de la esposa de la madre biológica de la pequeña.

La resolución, de la que ha sido ponente el magistrado José Manuel Sieira, recuerda que el delito de prevaricación es uno de los más graves que puede cometer un miembro de la carrera judicial en cuanto quiebra la esencia del Poder Judicial y la conducta mínimamente exigible a quien lo encarna.

Es más, distingue entre el delito de prevaricación dolosa previsto en al artículo 446 del Código Penal, por el que fue condenado precisamente Ferrín Calamita, y el de prevaricación culposa del artículo 447. Así, subraya que, en este caso, “estamos ante un delito de mayor gravedad”, lo que hace el perjuicio para el servicio público sea indudablemente mayor.

Los hechos se remontan al año 2006 cuando una pareja de lesbianas inició el proceso de adopción con el objetivo de que una de ellas fuera reconocida como la madre adoptiva de la niña que su pareja sentimental había concebido por inseminación artificial.(Original)

Italian council vice-president: “kill them all lesbians, gays and paedophiles”

Giuseppe Cannata

“And these scum continue undeterred. kill them all [these] lesbians, gays and paedophiles”. The shock sentence is signed by the vice-president of the [Vercelli] municipal council, Giuseppe Cannata, elected from the ranks of Brothers of Italy. This is how, on Facebook, Cannata commented on a post by Senator Pillon.
The post was then deleted, in a hurry but too late. Arcigay Rainbow Vercelli Valsesia, which published the screenshot, is already asking for his resignation both from the city council and from his role as vice president. But he also asks for his immediate expulsion from the medical association, adding that legal actions are under consideration in which the board itself could become a civil party.

“E questi schifosi continuano imperterriti. ammazzateli tutti ste lesbiche, gay e pedofili”. La frase choc è firmata dal vice presidente del Consiglio comunale Giuseppe Cannata, eletto tra le file di Fratelli d’Italia. E’ così che, su Facebook, Cannata commenta un post del senatore Pillon.
Il post è stato poi cancellato, in tutta fretta ma è troppo tardi. Arcigay Rainbow Vercelli Valsesia, che ne pubblica lo screenshot, chiede già le dimissioni sia dal consiglio comunale che da suo ruolo di vice presidente. Ma ne chiede anche la sua immediata espulsione dall’ordine dei medici, aggiungendo che si stanno valutando azioni legali in cui lo stesso direttivo potrebbe costituirsi parte civile.

Australia: Lesbian elder speaks about abuse as young woman and in ageing

Malloy Rolfe (left) and Dr Catherine Barrett at the 2019 National Elder Abuse Conference .

The 84-year-old gay Adelaide woman began to speak to the National Elder Abuse Conference in Brisbane in clear and simple language.
“My name is Malloy and I’m going to share a story about what it was like to grow up as a lesbian in the 1950s,” Hazel ‘Malloy’ Rolfe said.
“Then I’m going to tell you about a recent experience of elder abuse at an aged care service provider.  Sadly, the two stories are connected.”
She moved to Australia from Middlesex in the UK as a teenager in 1948.
Ms Rolfe was sexually assaulted by her now deceased father, then her mother died nine years after arriving in Adelaide.
Ms Rolfe was later treated in Adelaide with LSD and electro-shock therapy for her sexuality.
She said growing up as a lesbian in Australia in the 1950s was “simply awful”.
“I was told that if I went back to feeling like a lesbian, God wouldn’t love me,” Ms Rolfe told delegates.
More recently, she was refused permission by a major aged-care provider to speak to women at aged-care facilities in South Australia because she was lesbian.

Germany: Lesbophobia persists even in hip Berlin

Lesbians in Germany

Lesbians have two vulnerable characteristics: they are women and they are homosexual. They are therefore disregarded by people for two reasons. This double vulnerability is there, no matter where in Europe, in the world she moves with and belongs to the family.

The police arrive within minutes, the boys are highly motivated to grab the guy. They ask Anna in the patrol car and comb through the streets of Moabit. Unfortunately, in vain.

Afterwards, we ask ourselves: why did not the other people at the bus stop help? There are three buses and the Ringbahn at this station, there were at least 15 people. No one asked if we were okay, nobody took pictures, nobody called the police. Nothing.

The BVG wants to make the video recordings of our bus available, but then accidentally pulls out the wrong pictures. The relevant recordings will be deleted according to the privacy policy. The preliminary investigation against the unknown man is finally stopped.

The offence is assault. Nowhere is it mentioned that we are lesbian, although we have said it, although it is clear that we are the child’s parents. Nevertheless, it is not recorded that it was a homophobic offence.
(Translated)

Lesben haben zwei verwundbare Eigenschaften: Sie sind Frauen und sie sind homosexuell. Sie werden also aus zwei Gründen von Menschen missachtet. Diese doppelte Verwundbarkeit ist da, egal wo in Europa, auf der Welt, sie zieht mit und gehört quasi zur Familie.

Die Polizei ist binnen Minuten vor Ort, die Jungs sind hochmotiviert, den Typen zu schnappen. Sie bitten Anna in den Streifenwagen und durchkämmen die Straßen von Moabit. Leider vergeblich.

Hinterher fragen wir uns: Warum haben die anderen Leute an der Bushaltestelle nicht geholfen? Es fahren drei Busse und die Ringbahn an dieser Station, da waren mindestens 15 Leute. Keiner hat sich erkundigt, ob es uns gut geht, keiner hat Fotos gemacht, keiner hat die Polizei gerufen. Nichts.

Die BVG will die Videoaufnahmen von unserem Bus zur Verfügung stellen, zieht dann aber aus Versehen die falschen Bilder raus. Die relevanten Aufnahmen werden gemäß Datenschutz gelöscht. Das Ermittlungsverfahren gegen unbekannt wird schließlich eingestellt.

Die Straftat lautet Körperverletzung. Dass wir lesbisch sind, wird nirgends erwähnt, obwohl wir es gesagt haben, obwohl klar ist, dass wir die Eltern des Kindes sind. Trotzdem wird nicht aufgenommen, dass es eine homophobe Straftat war.

U.S: Lesbian couple brutally attacked by group of men

kimberly-page-abc7.jpg

Kimberly Page is speaking out publicly about a violent attack as police search for suspects. Page said that she and her girlfriend were out late with friends in a town on Long Island on July 7.

At around 3:30 a.m., Page and her girlfriend were alone when a group of men approached them and taunted them.

They “started saying obscene things to my girlfriend and I,” Page said. “It originated by him asking her if she wanted a real [expletive] and why is she with this [slur].” She said that they tried to ignore the men, but then the men got angry.

One of the men told Page’s girlfriend, “I’m not going to fight you, I’m going to fight her,” because Page is “a dude.”

The man slapped Page’s girlfriend and then punched Page.

Google finally changes its French algorithm for the word lesbian

SEO Lesbienne Google Victory

Before July 18, 2019, the word “Lesbian” entered on Google displayed only pornography. It was a mistake for Google, but an error now corrected. On July 18, 2019, the word “Lesbian” no longer refers to pornographic results on the French search engine, even if Safe Search is not active. The subject that seems confined to technology hides in fact enormous social consequences.

On the one hand, access to information on lesbianism on the most used search engine in France was complex. On the other hand, the results by default were part of a dangerous sexualization of women’s bodies, vector of criminal behaviour far beyond the web – the latest example to date: London lesbians who were beaten after refusing to kiss in front of a man.
(Translation)

Avant le 18 juillet 2019, le mot « Lesbienne » entré sur Google n’affichait que de la pornographie. C’était une erreur pour Google, mais une erreur désormais corrigée. Le 18 juillet 2019, le mot « Lesbienne » ne renvoie plus sur des résultats pornographiques sur le moteur de recherche français, même si Safe Search n’est pas actif. Le sujet qui semble cantonné à la technologie cache en réalité des conséquences sociales énormes.

D’une part, l’accès à l’information sur le lesbianisme sur le moteur de recherche le plus utilisé en France était complexe. D’autre part, les résultats par défaut participaient à une sexualisation dangereuse du corps des femmes, vectrice de comportements criminels dépassant très largement le web — dernier exemple en date, ces lesbiennes londoniennes qui ont été battues après avoir refuser de s’embrasser devant un homme.

U.S: Dressmaker refuses service to lesbian couple, but offers to convert them instead

A St. Louis couple said a wedding dress designer refused to make a garment for them, saying it goes against her faith. Tiffany Allen and Angel Lane said they reached out to the New York-based company, D. AUXILLY, through e-mail to get some information. They said the designer, Dominique Galbraith, responded with the following e-mail that said in part:

“I wouldn’t be able to make a piece for a same-sex wedding. It goes against my faith in Christ. I believe Jesus died for our sins so that we would live for him according to His Holy Word. I know you both love each other and that this feels right but I encourage you both to reconsider and see what the Lord has to say and the wonderful things He has in store for you both if you trust and obey Him.

God Bless and be with you both!

I’m available to talk and share more about Jesus if you’d like. Feel free to call me.”

The New York Police Department is investigating the vandalism as a possible hate crime.

Spain: Lesbian couple verbally abused by woman after she spots them ‘kissing’

Lesbians in spain

A woman with a buggy has been filmed hurling a torrent of homophobic abuse at a lesbian couple after she reportedly spotted them kissing.

In the footage taken on a tube, the woman is heard calling the pair “d—-” and “c———-“.

She also refers to her own gay brother as a “f—–” and shouts: “You disgust me, I have a gay brother, but he doesn’t kiss in front of me because he respects me.”

She adds: “It disgusts me to see you kissing. If you want respect, you also have to respect me.”

When she appears to hear the couple speaking Catalan, the woman scoffs and says: “Oh, you are also Catalan!”

One of the women replies: “Oh, so you are a homophobic and a racist!”

Mexico: Lesbians, women in resistance

Love doesn't hurt hate does

Photo: Mario Jiménez Leyva

Vilma Katt Ulloa, lesbofeminist activist, argues that the fight against discrimination based on sexual preference, in Mexico was led by women. Thus, the names of lesbians such as María Castro, Nancy Cárdenas and Alma Margarita Oceguera are inscribed in the story. Over the years, the movement for the vindication of their rights was aimed at making women again invisible under the predominance of machismo and the misogyny also present within the gay community. “There is an internalized lesbophobia that is lived within those letters with which the non-heterosexual population has been characterized.”
