Two homeless women booted from women’s shelter to make room for transgendered male in Kelowna

Canada’s LGBT zeal results in females being evicted from women’s shelter in British Columbia.

Several times in the past, Megaphone Magazine, which is supposed to be a magazine advocating for the homeless, used the front page of their “magazine” to post transgender or gay issues. Many thought that that Megaphone had been taken over by the mega-left. Well. Here is the chance for megaphone to prove that it is not mega-left, but rational and professional. Will Megaphone publish this news? Where two homeless women were kicked out of a homeless shelter for a man with a penis who believes that he is a woman?

There’s a war on women being waged in British Columbia, and the enemy is neither an alt-right white nationalist organization, nor a fundamentalist religious group steeped in conservative ideology. The faction waging war against homeless women in Kelowna is none other than the Canadian government itself, motivated by its own over-the-top progressive zeal.

Two homeless women were asked to leave a women’s shelter in Kelowna, British Columbia, after they raised concerns about sharing a room with a man who identifies as a female, according to Canadian news website Global News.

The NOW organization  (www.nowcanada.ca) claims that the women broke the rules by speaking to the press

One of the women tossed into the streets to make way for the new transgendered arrival is identified as Tracey, who told a reporter from Global News: “He wants to become a woman, I mean that is his choice but when a man comes into a women’s shelter who still has a penis and genitals, he has more rights than we do.” After Tracey voiced her concerns to the shelter’s management she shared her story with the media — and was then ordered to leave.

Similar concerns were raised by another resident of the shelter, identified by as Blaine, who recently fled an abusive partner and sought refuge at the Kelowna shelter, which is run by the NOW Canada Society. On Thursday morning, Blaine and Tracey were ordered to leave the shelter permanently — on the grounds that they had broken a confidentiality agreement by speaking to the media.

Women’s shelter must accept people of all genders

NOW Canada explained that its shelters don’t have enough space to allow Transgender clients to have their own room, so they have to share living quarters with the female residents. The organization also provided an official statement to Global News, reading: “NOW Canada cannot speak to specific cases. It is against the law to discriminate against transgender individuals. NOW Canada and other shelters in Kelowna welcome people without regard to age, race, religion and gender identity.”

A world leader in transgender rights, Canada’s anti-discrimination policies are seen by many as being too over-the-top. In 2016, Prime Minister Trudeau proposed a bill that would send those accused of “anti-LGBT hate speech” to prison for two years.

While Canada’s anti-discriminatory laws are praised by progressives the world over, it appears that Canadian lawmakers failed to take into consideration the real world problems that such pro-LGBT policies were likely to create when put into practice. And now, thanks to those policies, two homeless women seeking refuge from domestic abuse have been turned away by the very national organization whose mission it was to shelter them.

One thing you can do is to contact the Megaphone Magazine staff and ask them to show integrity and professionalism and publish a story about this injustice.

The concept of citizen journalism (also known as “public“, “participatory“, “democratic“ or “street” journalism is based upon public citizens “playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analyzing, and disseminating news and information.” Similarly, Courtney C. Radsch defines citizen journalism “as an alternative and activist form of newsgathering and reporting that functions outside mainstream media institutions, often as a response to shortcomings in the professional journalistic field, that uses similar journalistic practices but is driven by different objectives and ideals and relies on alternative sources of legitimacy than traditional or mainstream journalism”. Jay Rosen proposes a simpler definition: “When the people formerly known as the audience employ the press tools they have in their possession to inform one another.”
