The Attack on Autumn Sandeen by Porno Pete LaBarbera

I am not friends with Autumn Sandeen, indeed she banned me from posting on Pam’s House Blend so it surprises even me to find myself stepping up to defend her from and attack by the professional ultra right wing bigot Porno Pete LaBarbera and his thug brother Matt Barber.

You see Porno Pete is getting paid by the corporate right to get his panties in a twist about the idea that the US should have even the first step towards the same sort of National Health Care one finds in the rest of the industrialized world.  In the Ayn Randian world of, “me first, screw everyone else” health care should be a commodity affordable by only the white, straight, wealthy and privileged.

Since LGBT/T people are the new Jews in this rising Reich of hate the very idea that transsexual and transgender people are equally deserving of having their medical needs including SRS covered is treated as a reason for rejecting the entire idea of medical insurance for all Americans.

The frightening thing is that the ultra right in this country has been organizing lynch mobs that have been denying the rights of people to speak in favor of single payer insurance at town hall meetings organized by senators and congress people across this country.  Senators and Congress people have professional security people who protect them.

Autumn Sandeen does not.  One has to look only to the murder of Dr. Tiller earlier this year to see the danger faced when one individual private citizen is targeted as a scapegoat by the unhinged bigots who often have access to guns.  One has only to look at the murder statistics regarding  TS/TG people to see the danger this scapegoating is putting Autumn in.

Porno Pete has had a long running well documented war with Pam’s House Blend but the setting up of Autumn as a target is just plain wrong.

At the very least we might consider putting aside personal animosities and letting Autumn know that at least some of us see this personalized attack on her as seriously crossing the line.  It is one thing when we quibble over words even when we say nasty and mean stuff that trashes the validity of the lives of various TG or TS activists and quite another when the leader of violence prone Brownshirts of the far right target a TS or TG activist this way.

    A year ago, as part of her personal war on me, Autumn Sandeen put up a piece on the front page of Pam’s with my picture calling me a racist…….

    Karma’s a bitch ain’t it.

  2. Ariablue Says:

    Nobody elected Autumn as a spokesperson for transsexual women. If we did, I’m sure one of the tens of thousands of TS people in this country could have done the job. No tears shed for someone who likes to bully others.

    Besides that, I think people like Autumn get off on the attention. I don’t think that it hurts Autumn’s feelings one bit. But look at that page. There is a picture of someone who is clearly a transvestite juxtaposed with a story about transsexual surgery. This helps us how?

    We’ve had enough of non-transsexuals speaking for us. All of the crossdressers, the transvestites, and other non-women should shut up.

    Your enemy’s enemy is NOT your friend. Autumn Sandeen is no friend to any transsexual. Sandeen is big enough and ugly enough to take care of hself. Karma.

    I’ve been targeted by the far right xian bigots and the Tgs both……..the TGs are far more dangerous and do more damage.

      Some of the people who have done the worst of the worst things to me over the years have been sister WBTs including one who attacked me with a huge bowie knife and would have shot me had I not unloaded the gun earlier in the day. She later sicced the pigs on me and had my house raided for drugs.

      Another sister made my life and the life of a WBT friend of mine hell by stalking us.

      Of the people I’ve blacklisted from posting here.. Let’s just say I’d rather have Monica Helms protecting my back than Jennifer (Just Jennifer) Suzanne Usher. Being WBT doesn’t mean you aren’t an a–hole.

      In fact I have met plenty of racist, bigoted, classist right wing WBTs over the years. Enough so that that I no longer automatically extend the trust of thinking sisterhood to some one just because they too had a sex change operation.

    A nasty piece of work is a nasty piece of work……innie or outie.

    Suzan, I have a lot of TG friends in person, my issues are with those who claim to represent me online, proclaim themselves “leaders”……and use the exact same tactics they decry in others. Privately I’ve observed that whatever some random tranny is accusing you of is actually their own preferred tactic. Whether they learned this from Karl Rove or vice versa is unclear.

    Sandeen and Helms are quite close to the top of the list of the worst offenders. Neither gets any slack at all from me.

  6. Anonymous T Girl Says:

    Is Suzanne Usher the legal name of ‘Just Jennifer’?

    And if so, has she released it herself online, or was it outed against her will?

    • Suzan Says:

      FYI I know her as Jennifer Suzanne Usher from her using that name and spewing bigotry while using that name since 1996.

  7. Suzan Says:

    Jennifer Suzanne Usher has been around since at least 1995. I first encountered Usher on line on Soc.support.transgender and alt.support.SRS. At that time Jennifer was a bigoted transvestite just deciding she was “more than a transvestite, but less than a transsexual”

    We permitted her on the womenborntranssxual post-op only mailing list but kicked her off because of her right wing homophobic bigotry. This person can be googled if you wish.

    So accusing me of outing her is pretty lame particularly since she is using her blog to engage in ad homenim attacks aimed at me.

  8. Brandi parker Says:

    Don’t feel bad hney she banned me too and I didn;t even break any of the policies or rules she just didn’t like my thoughts and opinion. That’s how they are on that site if they don;t like what you have to say they banned you it’s kinda like that old stick your head in the sand routine. If they banned you it makes them feel they’re point was right and you were wrong…..lolololol Denial !!! what a lovely way to get through life. I can only Imagine since I’ve always been a realist.

    I can confirm all of that as I was there back then as well. She has been using her legal name on-line for a VERY long time.

    How do you know that’s the same person?

    • Suzan Says:

      From the nature of her writing and wording. Further this internet troll has been spreading her crap all over the web in letters she writes to other places. Jennnifer Usher has been an troll who shifted her initial identity from Christian Cross dressing homophobe circa 1996, to “More than a transvestite, but less than a transsexual.” circa 1997 and on and on.

      I have her ISP data from her dropping her nastiness on to this blog from the day I started it. That is how I can block people from posting.

    “So accusing me of outing her is pretty lame particularly since she is using her blog to engage in ad homenim attacks aimed at me.”

    It was just a simple question. You are extraordinarily high-strung with me. There’s no need to read anything into it.

    If what you say is true, than that would make her guilty of meat-puppeting. But we would need isp numbers as proof.

    Otherwise it’s just an unfounded accusation.

    • Suzan Says:

      I do not need to prove anything to you. You only have to google Jennifer Usher + transsexual.
      As for outing her. she uses her name in posts to the Advocate and else where and is currently making her blog pretty much about me.

      I bash back.

    If you had been on SST or ASSR newsgroups from the mid 90’s onward there would be no need to ask that question.

    Years ago she tried to cosy up to me, but i found her views and attitudes objectionable so i never responded.
