“Lily” Madigan a transgender teenager formerly known as Liam, was previously part of an effort to undermine a women’s career.
The transgender campaigned for a Labour Party women’s officer to be fired for being “transphobic”, Spike reported.
Anne Ruzylo, a lesbian, feminist and trade unionist, had expressed her misgivings about the growing trans movement. She was immediately labelled a “terf” (trans exclusionary radical feminist) and harassed by Madigan’s transgender friends online.
The executive committee of Ruzylo’s local Labour branch eventually resigned in protest at her mistreatment.
While Labour Party rules state a “women’s officer must be a woman,” Madigan dismissed it as “misguided”. The trans wants to be the first trans MP, according to the Times: “Firstly, trans-women are women, women who are vastly more under-represented than most. We haven’t even had a transgender MP yet.”
The Labour new councillor said that “lived experience as a woman” should not be considered a prerequisite — for the role of women’s officer. Madigan added: “Someone who is an accountant would probably make a better treasurer initially, but that doesn’t mean we should only give the role to an accountant.”
At 18, Madigan hired a lawyer to sue his mixed Catholic secondary school for not allowing him to use the girls’ changing rooms or wear the girls’ uniform.
The teenager, who has only recently declared himself to be a woman, playing the role of a women’s officer, has posed for photographs with labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, but the appointment nevertheless raised many eyebrows.
Before his transformation, he had joked about rape and the notorious British pedophile Jimmy Saville. The Twitter page under her previous name, “Liam” have revealed disgusting posts and references to rapists.
The trans says it was a “fake account under prior name set up to tease” him/her. But the page, which retweeted posts from her brother in 2013, is still being linked to Madigan.
Teresa Murray, vice-chairwoman of the executive committee of Rochester and Strood CLP, said: “Lily will have to work very hard to convince other people that her very presence there is not going to undermine them.”
For women to feel politically represented, they must be represented by women, critics say.
But Madigan defended the appointment. The “goal is to be the first one”. “Like most women, I’m a feminist. They aren’t mutually exclusive issues, far from it. I would argue strongly that all appeals to biology are anti-feminist. We can’t challenge the view we are limited by our biology in one breath and use the biology argument against trans women in the next.”
When Heather Brunskell Evans, an academic and a spokesperson for the Women’s Equality Party (WEP), questioned the intervention for trans children on Radio 4’s Moral Maze, the WEP launched an investigation against her because she had allegedly “promoted prejudice against the transgender community”.
The Church of England and the BBC have waded into the transgender debate in support of gender transformation however.

Children have meanwhile become fixated on their gender, says Ella Whelan, a progressive feminist — with girls binding their breasts or boys taking drugs to prevent puberty.
“Tragically, transgender politics has become a new dogma, promoted by almost every wing of the elite, and that is bad for young people, for women, and for freedom and critical thinking,” Whelan added.
Meanwhile a Christian high school teacher in Britain, Joshua Sutcliffe was suspended for “misgendering” a student.
Sutcliffe was suspended, investigated, and faced a tribunal hearing because he had called a transgender student who identifies as male a “girl”.
During a group activity, he said “well done girls” to the group that the transgender student was in.
Sutcliffe told RT he had been singled out because he is Christian.
