    Transgender women using Hampstead ladies pond angers women

    Something to chuckle at.....Looks like the liberal PC brigade don't like it on their own doorstep......



    A decision by a female-only swimming pond in north London to welcome transgender women has disgruntled some regular users.The popular Hampstead Heath pond, used by local residents Emma Thompson and Kate Moss, is restricted to women over the age of eight.
    A spokesperson for the City of London Corporation, who manage the pond, told the Mail on Sunday that they would allow transgender swimmers who were transitioning from male to female to use it.

    Margaret Roberts has been swimming in the ladies’ pond for 32 years and told the paper she had seen someone using the pond who “looked and dressed like a woman” but claimed to identify as a man and refused to leave when asked by Roberts.

    She added that in the summer she had seen a “young man” using the pond while wearing a bikini who claimed to be transitioning from male to female.

    “I and many others are threatened by having to have ‘cross dressers’ openly use our private space,” Roberts said.

    “Women have few private spaces and we have had to fight many times to keep the pond open.”
    Feminist writer Julie Bindel is also a regular visitor to the pond and lambasted the decision to welcome transgender women as “totally unacceptable”.

    “The last thing [young girls] want is to look behind them and see a male-bodied person pretending to be a woman in order to gawp at them.”

    However, some regular swimmers were thrilled at the pond's progressive policy.

    "So happy that Hampstead Heath Ladies Pond has an explicitly trans friendly policy now," wrote one Twitter user.
    "I have been swimming there for years, as many London women trans and cis. It is a tiny piece of heaven that just got better".
    There are two further ponds on the heath, one for men and a third mixed one.

    A spokesperson for the City of London Corporation explained that all lifeguards and managers at the ponds are well-versed in transgender issues and have all taken training courses in trans awareness.

    “We are working with the LGBTQ community to ensure our facilities are fit to serve the needs of everyone who enjoys them, and will continue to do so in the future,” they said.

    The Kenwood Ladies’ Pond Association added that they were in talks regarding swimmers’ concerns with privacy, reports The Times.

    “The KLPA is committed to ensuring safe and respectful swimming at the Ladies’ Pond and a social environment in which everyone can expect to be treated with respect, courtesy and consideration,” a spokesperson said.

    Surely there's a slot machine by the entrance allowing you to "self-identify as a woman" for half an hour and get a gorp at some flabby stretchmarked bristols?

    Right there is the problem. Ms (I presume) Bindel, after a failed marriage 30 years ago and in having spent the last 60 years denying her lesbian tendencies, has no idea about LGBT issues, that trans women don't go there to gawp at female forms, and may even be a bit jealous because she does all the surreptitious gawping herself. Ms Roberts too.

    ^ More than that...they're confusing cross-dressers with transexuals.

    How about only allowing post-op trannies in?

    Sounds a bit more logical. That way the old boilers can be certain nobody gets an erection while mentally undressing them.

    Then again the non-dickless ones will cry discrimination, again.

    Why wouldn't they just use the mixed pond? Would men feel discriminated against by trannies who don't wanna be in the same space?

    Not long now. Female changing rooms will become "gender fluid" too.

    "Gender fluid" sounds a bit edgy to me. Especially the 'fluid' bit. How about "gender flexible"

    How about 4th division ladyboys?


    What sort of bloke would don a bikini and swim in a freezing lake on the hope of catching a glimpse? Sounds a bit desperate.

    as skkin said, they are pushing their agenda. turning the normally tolerant into the intolerant and turning supporters into extreme supporters.

    introducing anger and divisiveness into society.

    let's start there.

    I swam in the mixed pond in 1990 as a kid. Its just a lake with a concrete island in the middle, if you can swim that far. The mens pond is famous for the poofters who sit sunbathing in their speedos around the edges. Many blokes don't care but the mixed pond is well used.

    Hampstead Heath is of course one of Londons oldest gay sex haunts after dark.

    The public should feel threatened, this insidious social media/left-wing msm fad is corroding the fundamentals of society and civilisation, as mentioned elswhere: http://teakdoor.com/the-teakdoor-lou...ve-hughes.html (Flat Earth - The Genius of Steve Hughes)

    The Kenwood Ladies’ Pond Association


    I reckon many of the women who belong to that association are not 'ladies' (in the old-fashioned sense of the word)

    Yes I have the idea that it's a private corporation...Aren't "The City"(aka the Square Mile) and greater London two different animals? There's the city of London and then there's The City of London.

    But I see where I may have went wrong. Last night I was tired and was equating the word "manage" with ownership. Is this pond within the boundaries of "The City" or in greater London?
    If "The City" manages a greater London public property/site(the pond), is it a for profit management system? Or out of the goodness of their icy cold bankster hearts?

    Over the centuries, reformers in Britain have tried, and failed, to have the corporation merged into a unified London authority. The political landscape heaved and shifted around it, but the City stood immune. As the Times noted in 1881, "The City Corporation is sacred although nothing else is."

    For much of the 20th century, the Labour Party had a pledge in its manifesto to abolish the corporation. In 1917, Peter Mandelson's grandfather Herbert Morrison, a rising star in Labour ranks, put the party's antipathy plainly. "Is it not time London faced up to the pretentious buffoonery of the City of London Corporation and wipe it off the municipal map?" he asked. "The City is now a square mile of entrenched reaction, the home of the devilry of modern finance."
    That quote from an interesting article about "The City" here:

    The tax haven in the heart of Britain
