Mr. "Autumn" Sandeen is well known for his love of censorship. At Pam's House Blend, he once banned me for something I said on my blog here. As soon as he starts losing an argument, which is pretty much anytime he is challenged on some point by someone, he likes to go with a ban. But something odd seems to have happened with his column at LGBT Weekly. While it is not certain, it appears that they must have told him "No more..." I mean, he was regularly putting people on moderation, and blocking commenters for relatively minor offensives, primarily for making mincemeat out of his positions. Then, suddenly, it all stopped.
So, what is a egotistical gender fascist like Sandeen to do? Apparently, you bring in a ringer. It is not clear if the person who has been running a bizarre bit of interference for Mr. Sandeen is a troll or a sock puppet, but it is obviously a scam. A commenter identified as "Jenna" appeared recently, and promptly proceeded to attack two commenters who were giving Mr. Sandeen fits. This person, at first, appeared to be a garden variety radfem, but then some strange things started happening. The first clue that something was amiss was when this person defended drag queens against a remark comparing them to minstrel show performers in "blackface." That was odd...at least for a radfem. Then it was noted that this person seemed to only go after the two transsexuals. Somehow, Mr. Sandeen was off limits. Also, even though one of the commenters has not revealed a name, this person identified them as "Jennifer," an obvious reference to myself.
Finally, when it was pointed out that not only was this person engaged in behavior that would, at least previously, have resulted in immediate bans (at least if aimed at Mr. Sandeen or other transgender types) but was also seeming to spare Mr. Sandeen, this person actually defended Mr. Sandeen. With this, the lie is exposed. A "radfem" who is attacking post-op transsexuals, but who has no problem with Mr. Sandeen, who still has his penis, claiming to be a full fledged, woman born woman because he obtained a fraudulent birth certificate? Yeah, like that is remotely reasonable.
Clearly, this is a scam, born of Mr. Sandeen's desperation. Really, too funny....
