Perhaps still an excess of testosterone remaining here

A champion fell-runner has been sentenced to 18 years in jail for the attempted murder of a UK Athletics official at a stadium in Birmingham.

Lauren Jeska, 42, from Machynlleth in Powys, pleaded guilty to trying to kill Ralph Knibbs, who is head of human resources and welfare at the sport’s British governing body as well as a former professional rugby player.

In what was described as a “cold, calculated attack”, the transgender athlete stabbed Knibbs multiple times in the head and neck after a dispute over whether she should be able to compete in women’s races.

  1. I shall moderate my comments and pretend I have never listened to Prof. Jordan Peterson.

    No point in putting oneself in harm’s way unnecessarily.

  2. Obviously once deeply unhappy people cut their goolies off, they become perfectly happy and well adjusted.

    Everyone knows this.

  3. In the interests of good reporting, rather than simply describing this indeterminate person as “she”, should the article and any others describing trans persons not be saying something like

    the non-cis she

    or

    the person born male but who rejected her biological sex and now self-identifies as female

  4. Person who refuses to accept constraints of biology also refuses to accept constraints of society. Tbh I’m surprised this sort of thing doesn’t happen more often.

  5. From Machynlleth; a mid-Wales loony bin full of hippies and weirdos. Moonbat lives there too. It’s probably full of murderous trannies but no one notices because of all the druids and sheep-rape.

  6. Sad to say but it’s whether HE could compete in women’s races. Of course not, blokes are physically stronger. I don’t care about the ethics, what you feel is important nonsense, biology trumps all of these silly arguments.

  7. Shame the scaffold is no longer an option. The rope doesn’t care what is or should be between his legs.

  8. “In a statement released to the media before the sentencing, Jeska’s parents, Pauline and Graham Jameson, said the attack had been completely out of character for their daughter and that the “stress and confusion” of the dispute with UK Athletics had triggered a mental health crisis</b.."

    Hmmm, a bit ‘chicken/egg’, isn’t it?

  9. Dave,
    I can’t speak for the others, but personally I’m always amused when nature vs nurture conflicts don’t agree with the liberal consensus.

  10. Why? Seriously, what’s so fascinating about it all? People are wrong about stuff all the time.

    Pretty much every single news story on this topic elicits a comment from our host. That’s a higher hit rate than the Ritchiebollocks.

  11. Come to think of it, there’s a lot of virtue-signalling going on round here, which is ironic given that you’re allegedly poking fun at right-on lefties doing the same.

  12. People are wrong about stuff all the time.

    Indeed. I am often. But I don’t cut my cock off over it, so no-one notices.

  13. Andrew M: Yup, it’s rather funny to watch the law of unintended consequences barge it’s mischievous way through the rituals of progressive dogma.

    Spend some time with Prof. Jordan Peterson/University of Toronto (I presume you already have and he doesn’t convince you) and you may understand why I personally find this interesting.

    Here in Spain we had the local Trans organisation plastering adverts over bus stops:
    ‘Sometimes boys have vulvas and girls have penises’
    The only outrage was directed at people who questioned this. ‘Haters’.
    Then another organisation (naturally labelled as far-far right) paid for buses to drive around with
    ‘Boys have penises
    Girls have vulvas’
    Outrage all over. Hate speech. Politicians going into a tizzy.

    I find all this fascinating. NY now recognises 31 or 37 genders, I can’t keep track. Nor can anybody else and it will never stop.

    The problem is when this becomes law and is classified as hate speech when I don’t use the preferred pronoun of number 25 or 18 or 9. When I can be subjected to obligatory thought retraining and can be kicked out and even under certain circumstances end up in jail. Canada and Toronto University, way to go.

    This has nothing to do with the right of anybody to do what they want to themselves or to call themselves what they want. It is about my freedom to say and think what I want not what some jumped-up leftie ignoramus thinks I should think and say.

    The importance of free speech. And don’t call me a bigot, please. 🙂

  15. Dave- I think there is a running theme amongst a lot of Timmy’s output of wishful thinking by the more *ahem* ideologically minded (CM Scum™), coming face to face with reality.

  16. “Seriously, what’s so fascinating about it all? […] Pretty much every single news story on this topic elicits a comment from our host. That’s a higher hit rate than the Ritchiebollocks.”

    Timmy knows that it’ll always get a good fight going. It’s easy, lazy, and keeps his blog fans interested and coming back for more. “Clickbait”, in other words.

  17. And what “reality” would that be Magnus?

    That a tiny number of confused and troubled individuals are being used by leftist vermin as a bridgehead for Marxian subjectivist bullshit? Which is the issue that really matters.

  18. Don’t you think a good war would settle all these PC things. The prospect of being dead does clarify the mind.

  19. Lauren Jeska’s a pretty nice girl,
    But she doesn’t have a lot to say
    Lauren Jeska’s a pretty nice girl
    But she changes from day to day

  20. Ecks, I think you misunderstand, probably due to syntactic ambiguity on my part. My meaning being, that a running theme of Timmy’s output is to find examples of wishful thinkers, and show them that the world just doesn’t work the way they wish it did.

  21. Dave – “Why? Seriously, what’s so fascinating about it all? People are wrong about stuff all the time.”

    These people picked a fight. We were all happy ignoring them – even singing along to Lola – until they went feral on the rest of us. It is simply self-defence.

    Dave – “Come to think of it, there’s a lot of virtue-signalling going on round here, which is ironic given that you’re allegedly poking fun at right-on lefties doing the same.”

    Which simply proves that you do not know what virtue-signalling means.

    Besides, you are wrong. TW did not comment on the industrial-grade self-delusion in this article:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4316874/Transgender-beauty-queen-reveals-s-love.html

    So he does not comment on them all. In the end, I would be happier if they just all f**ked off. I don’t want to spend any time discussing this issue at all. But if someone picks a fight, they will get a fight. The sooner it is over, the sooner we can get back to important issues, like Kelly Brock’s backside:

  22. “These people picked a fight. We were all happy ignoring them – even singing along to Lola – until they went feral on the rest of us. It is simply self-defence.”

    Much the same as we highlight every case of a woman committing a murder to stick it to the radical feminists, and every case of a disabled person committing a crime, to make the point to the militant disability activists, and every case of a poor person being bad, to upset the socialists, and so on. Right?

    “I don’t want to spend any time discussing this issue at all.”

    So don’t discuss it. Commenting isn’t compulsory.

    For someone who doesn’t want to discuss it, we sure spend a lot of time discussing it… 🙂
