Timeline of Trans Activists Beating a Woman in Hyde Park

Violent men doing what violent men always do. Fear, intimidation, and violence. Their feelings are NOT more important than our safety. These are not women. They will never be women. No amount of bullying, silencing or violence is going to change that biological fact.

GenderTrender

A public debate was scheduled in London between feminists and transgender activists over the conflict of interest between women’s rights and the transgender movement, specifically the impact of proposed changes to the UK Gender Recognition Act. The event was titled ‘What is Gender? The Gender Recognition Act and Beyond’.

At debate is the proposal to eliminate the legal classification of women as ‘adult female human beings’ to be replaced with ‘Gender Identity’, an undefined and subjective feeling with no stated characteristics that is unrelated to biological sex. This would allow males who declare this personal feeling to opt into female areas of public life set aside to promote equality for women and protection from male violence (female prisons, female change rooms, female scholarships, etc.). Transgender activists seek the elimination of women as a legal class on the premise that doing so would improve the mental health of a small minority…

“Transgender woman convicted of murdering friend”

I bet some woman is going to have fun bunking with him. It will be just like Orange is the New Black!!  Luckily it appears that he will be housed with men. Matthew Smith Matty Smith Independence murder suspect_1388602863699_1741312_ver1.0_640_480

COVINGTON A jury didn’t believe that 72 stab wounds were inflicted in self-defense at a party in Independence on New Year’s Day 2014.

After seven hours of deliberation Friday evening, the jury found Matthew “Maddie” Smith guilty of the murder of Eric Schreiber, 39, of Villa Hills.

Smith, 26, is a transgender woman from Crescent Springs who claimed she killed Schreiber in self-defense. She faces life in prison in a men’s facility as the jury deliberated late into the night in the sentencing phase.

Her attorney, Shannon Sexton, pleaded for mercy, asking the jury to impose the minimum 20 years in prison. Smith, because she’s transgendered, has spent the past 15 months in isolation at the Kenton County Detention Center.

“Doing time like that is an eternity,” Sexton said. “Twenty years is an eternity in isolation. I respectfully admit that while a crime has been committed, there is room for mercy.”

The brutality of the crime, however, warrants life in prison, said Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Leanne Beck. Beck disputed that Smith will spend the entire sentence in isolation.

After deliberation, the jury announced a 40-year sentence for Smith, according to the Kenton County Commonwealth’s Attorney office.

“I can’t get past what Maddie did,” Beck said. “This wasn’t one stabbing. This wasn’t a mistake. This was a brutal killing Eric endured; 72 stabbings is not something you can take lightly.”

The prosecution claimed she had a vendetta against Schreiber and made threats.

Smith alleged Schreiber tried to sexually assault her while the two were at a party at Schreiber’s sister-in-law’s house for New Year’s Eve 2013.

The prosecutor’s argument that 72 stab wounds couldn’t be self-defense appears to have swayed the jury.

Schreiber’s throat was slit and stab wounds to the chest broke through the breastplate, said Beck.

“You have 72 reasons to convict,” Beck said in her closing statement. “Seventy-two is proof in and of itself that she intended to kill Eric.”

The fatal path that led to the stabbing began when Smith befriended Schreiber’s step-daughter, Corina Wallace, as the two worked at Citibank.

Smith on the stand said Schreiber’s family welcomed her with open arms as she began her transition from male to female.

But Smith said she had a frosty relationship with Schreiber, whom she accused of groping her and making unwanted advances at a Fourth of July party.

The tension thawed and the two found themselves at a New Year’s Eve party Dec. 31, 2013 at Schreiber’s sister-in-law’s house in Independence. By 7 a.m. the next morning, Schreiber lay dead in the backyard with his throat slit and 72 stab wounds.

Family on both sides cried at the verdict Friday.

Schreiber’s family said they felt relief after four days of testimony that repeatedly accused the victim of attempted sexual assault.

“I hated the fact he was dragged through the mud the way he was,” said Schreiber’s aunt, Martha Wilbers. “That was the horrible part about it. The fact that people realize now Eric didn’t do all those horrible things they accused him of. We are so relieved about that.”

Smith’s family testified during the sentencing phase late Friday evening about Smith’s compassion and peaceful nature.

His sister Brittany Smith spoke of her generosity.

“Maddie is one of the most kind-hearted, generous persons I’ve ever known,” she said. “She would give you the shirt off her back.”

But Schreiber’s step-daughter testified during sentencing to the hurt of Smith’s betrayal.

“The person who did this was a great friend of mine,” Wallace said. “She told myself, my husband and family lies after lies. I have no words to explain the hurt I feel about that.”

Schreiber’s family, however, empathized with Smith’s family.

“We know they are hurting and we understand that,” said Schreiber’s aunt, Carol Hodge. “Two families’ lives are changed forever and everyone is hurting.”
