Good morning –

My name is Cathy Brennan, and I am a lesbian feminist activist in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. Recently, a student at your school, Rufus Ulrik (formerly Cara), has been emailing me and contacting me via social media.  This student seems disturbed. I do not want any contact with this student, as she has made numerous disturbing comments about women and rape on Tumblr, a social media website.  See http://bugbrennan.tumblr.com/post/23825779979/how-is-it-repulsive-i-offered-you-my-mother-you and http://bugbrennan.tumblr.com/post/23825643262/hahah-outing-me-i-dont-give-a-shit-to-be-honest-you

Can you assist me please? I will be in the U.K. in July. You may also reach me at this email address. I am truly disturbed that someone this young would act this violently.

I am also reporting this user to Tumblr for abuse by copy of this email. They are user http://evenweirdosneedtoreblog.tumblr.com/

Thank you,

Cathy Brennan

UPDATE: Trans Community – through their Leader Joelle Ruby Ryan – instead sides with abusive person! Shocking!

      Good morning –

      My name is Cathy Brennan, and I am a women’s rights activist in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S. Over the last month, I have received numerous threatening messages from a student in Leiston who goes by both Cara and Rufus. The harassment I (and other women) have received is documented here http://bugbrennan.com/2012/06/10/17-year-old-girl-harasses-women-online-trans-community-silent/

      Can you advise as to how I can file a criminal complaint in the UK against this person? I will be in the UK in July if I need to do this in person.

      Thank you,

      Cathy Brennan

    That awkward moment when my step father works for the town council

    1. that awkward moment when a super-oppressed transperson invokes patriarchal institutional support….

  4. OH RUFUS YOU JUST GOT YOUR ASS HANDED TO YOU SO NICELY..omg…that was awesome. This comment section is the most badass thing ive seen all week.

  5. Hi Cathy, just wanted to put this out here as evidence of Rufus/Cara’s shitty behaviour. I am killyourenemies.tumblr.com for lurkers/other readers.

    Rufus/Cara’s a rape apologist, they told me that ‘rape kink’ is a-okay when I was talking about my own experience of pornography being made of my rape. Then had a friend (I-told-you-im-a-psycho.tumblr.com/Zane Rook/Ciara Bennett) make a post misrepresenting me and saying that I had ‘forced’ Rufus/Cara to delete their tumblr. I did no such thing.

    After this spat Rufus/Cara sent an apology for their behaviour through Zane/Ciara. I told them to not worry too much about this (I am too busy focusing my energies on recovering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which I developed from being rape multiple times though my teen years,) and said thank you for the apology.

    Less than a week later, Rufus/Cara was making rape jokes on tumblr.

    Rufus/Cara is a liar and not the ‘victim’ they make themselves out to be.

  6. […] FALSE. The alleged minor in question, who identified as genderqueer, posted a comment about rape and… […]

  7. Layman/woman/wo-person’s explanation for the drunk or very stupid?

    Don’t get mad, but remember, those of us not currently in the know may still care very damn much even if we’re too slow to follow. A “last week on…” synopsis would help. ll I see is a lot of breadcrumbs I can’t follow.

    Not trying to be a bitch. Genuinely interested and empathic, but confused.

    1. 17 year old girl harasses women online, including making rape jokes, and then cries when we tell on her.

        Okay, I see how that might be infuriating, but…

        Why are you giving this person the validation she wants?

        I know, she’s going to get her first blast at anyone who isn’t prepared for her, and that is terribly infuriating and unfair. But she’s an idiot kid. As satisfying as it might sound to billow out and turn into a pillar of fire… Fuck her. Over the initial responses, don’t make any more posts validating her abuse.

        I will understand if you get mad. Trams people deserve protection as much as anyone else. But it that very reason why “don’t feed the trolls” is a byline.

        Even as I say this, I’m sure I’ll get rocks thrown at me, and I will understand whole-heatedly because I’ve been there. Feel free to get mad. You’re justified. But I hope that, once you’re done being mad, you’ll understand why you don’t want to let this chick have her way. Don’t give her the time of day. Life is too damn short.

    *and, thanks to one too many vodka-and-cranberries, I wrote “trams” instead of “trans”, because Apple apparently thinks trams-people are a thing.<3 that laugh is on me.
