On top of all the bigotry and bullying, she seems to have a pretty happy and settled life IRL, so I think the pity for her that’s occasionally expressed here is a bit misplaced. She also seems to have wised up somewhat to when people are taking the piss out of her, which isn’t saying much, but I’m not ruling out a Lawnmower Man scenario just yet.

She'll get too powerful and glinner will trap her entity within the glindr server?

Maybe I should block Sian or I might be a Jehovah's Witness soon too

Having grown up amongst them, I wouldn't recommend it.

Unusual to see a post on here that doesn't misrepresent their core beliefs, silly though they are, so good work there.

In terms of her happy home life, I’m not convinced. Her Facebook profile is public, and it seems that her only “friends” are JWs in various far-flung locations, with some fairly bleak, if vague, allusions to her family “marrying out of the truth” and not having much contact.
Oh, is that right? Ech, I still don’t feel sorry for her.

I did a quick Photoshop of Sian as Jed Maxwell with Glinner's face instead of Partidge's, but it unnerved me so much I deleted it immediately.

You grew up amongst Sians? Must have been horrid.

edit: removed report about creeping on Sian

QDRPHNC, I believe someone has done the same photoshop in an earlier thread.

I also read Glinner's second-most recent blog post recently, where or 'JL', whoever that is, repeatedly referred to Munroe Bergdorf - who terfs seem to think is one of the Most Evil People In History at the moment - as 'he'. It was pretty gross and unpleasant all-round. Twitter should nuke anyone who links to his blog.

JL can hardly complain about not being able to be open about their beliefs if they're going to be so transparently bigoted.

They probably associate her views with the religion they've dismissed or aren't listening and passively agreeing to keep the peace.

Getting a bit uncomfortable with this now. Glinner may be the worst man in the world but he was a famous person with a platform and a large following. This Sian person is a nobody and creeping on her Facebook page might be crossing a line. Also I think it might be good to let the deplatforming take effect and just leave Are Graham to fade into obscurity.

I've had my fun watching the aftermath on Glindr but I'm out now. Just figured out how to delete my account, even if you were only in there as a rubbernecker maybe consider not swelling his numbers and do the same?

I think that's a very fair point, BJ, and on reflection I'm a bit uneasy about my own actions on that front. It is irritating to be endlessly lectured on acceptable and wholesome lifestyles by a lonely, hypocritical, deranged old religious bigot who's Glinnered her own family, but I have no wish to doxx anybody. This isn't Kiwifarms.

Dammit Sian, being so intriguing! Anyway yeah I agree BlueJam, and I edited my post too. Sian isn't even a high-profile non-celeb internet terf, either. She's just an interesting character that is peripheral to the Glinner story. As far as the Twitter GC movement goes, she's a trivial part of it, and far from one of the most harmful people. Hell, she's only got about 250 Twitter followers.

I've been a bit uneasy too. Like a lot of people right now I think I've just been very very bored lately and not thinking too much about what I've been posting.

Also I have been a bit invested in this because I have former friends who have gone full TERF. These were people who had popular blogs and lots of Twitter followers and who were doing good and useful work for the whole Skeptic cause and who have now sacked it all off to rant about toilets. It has genuinely saddened me but they're beyond help so I'll just let them all get on with nuking their lives.

https://twitter.com/TerfCis this account is bizarrely claiming that 'cis' is misogynist and will block you if you use it, and add you to a blocklist!

It's gonna be hard to wring more out of the Glinner story, which is a good thing all-round. There have been more than a few days where my mind has been preoccupied with Glinner. It's like litter. I must admit that I love a bit of old-fashioned e-hate though, it seems like repeatedly targeting or trolling obnoxious organisations is something my brain likes to do.

Hell I don't even know any trans women; I'm friends with one NB / trans man. I worked with someone who has recently come out as a trans woman, they were the only person in the office I got along with, but this was about 10 years ago.

At least Glinner got me here, though; somewhere else to 'socialise' while I work that isn't the hellsphere of Twitter, or the 'business clients see you calling Churchill a cunt'-sphere of Facebook. Or Reddit, which takes up too much time. Twitter gives me anxiety.

I’m out now with the Glinner stuff.
For me it was like a social study watching one mans fall into Internet madness, lose his family, friends and then social networking account.
A tragic waste of time and effort.

IMO no-one ever wins ‘arguments’ on the Internet. I see it on other forums I’m on.
People with 2 opposing views and beliefs shouting at the other trying to get a win.
Complete waste of life and time, and just brings stress. Who could be arsed.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I agree with this tbh. Never been comfortable with it.

I agree with this too. In any case the whole "Karen" thing has gotten very old and it was never funny in the first place.

It was and still is funny in meme world, claiming something was never very funny is a bit tabloid hack asking 'what's funny about that?' don't you think?. If you don't like it you might just not be it's intended audience. Do you enjoy Grapejuiceboys on instagram? That's always my test.

I would love to see that Helen Staniland get booted off Twitter. She's a lot more careful in her trans-hate than Glinner in terms of adhering to the TOS, but she's perhaps more obnoxious, and I think she's more effective, too. Not effective in the sense of making a good argument, but in that she is better at inciting pile-ons on people that support trans rights, and getting a bunch of people to call them pedos. But she's just a civilian like you or I and perhaps not worth the mental space.

The term seems to have evolved from the 'I want to speak to the manager haircut' meme on reddit, and like that meme it was being used, in its early days, as a shorthand for 'women - cuh, annoying how they're always talking, like moooom stop embarrassing me!!!'. It smacks of teenage boy. Any clip of a woman doing ANYTHING would be pounced on if she had a short, bob haircut. 'Ha ha typical!!!' It was no different from the 'nagging wife' trope.

There have since been claims made that it's a rallying cry from put upon, majority POC waiting staff to strike back at privileged white women. But if I'm honest, I'm not seeing it. And even if it was, why just women? Is it only women who are racist to POC waiting staff? Why does it need a specific term for 'annoying woman'.

It's also mutated now to just mean 'woman doing something'. Again, I've said it before, but there was a video on reddit of Extinction Rebellion blocking a road entitled 'KARENS BLOCK ROAD DURING RUSH HOUR'. Right, so it's just any protest now is it? Protestors are just Karens now, bloody Karens. 'Look at this Karen sitting at the front of the bus!!! Like, some people have jobs to go to Karen!!!'

Get rid of it. Pointless term.

Yeah, I feel the same.  Was fun whilst it lasted, but now I feel a little dirty.  I mean, there's nowhere else for the Glinner story to go now, is there?  He's got no platform, no friends in the business.  Is it too early to place bets on when he's going to do a 180 on the trans thing?  Because that's the only card left in his deck now.

No having a funny observation/characterisation bastardised by a wider community of ignorant online hate mongers and then letting them have the final say on what things mean, not having that.

The only way that's going to happen is if there's another cause-celebre he gets involved in that involves aligning with trans women by a large part. This is what compelled him to volte-face on Gamergate. I think he's gonna die mad about it.

I guess you could repurpose all those memes to say 'annoying woman' but not sure they'd be quite as good

But that's the thing, I don't think it has been bastardised by ignorant online hate mongers - it STARTED with the ignorant online hate mongers. That was always its purpose.
