International Women's Day #InvestInWomen

In a world facing multiple crises that are putting immense pressure on communities, achieving gender equality is more vital than ever. Ensuring women’s and girls’ rights across all aspects of life is the only way to secure prosperous and just economies, and a healthy planet for future generations. One of the key challenges in achieving gender equality by 2030 is an alarming lack of financing with a staggering USD 360 billion annual deficit in spending on gender-equality measures....

Britney Lozza v. Tux Machines: Deadline Reached

On March 2, 2024, a deadline was reached, one which was with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO). Rianne Schestowitz had until then to file a Form 2 - Response. Back in November 2023, I filed a human rights lawsuit in Ontario against Tux Machines, run by Rianne Schestowitz. I don’t yet know if she actually filed a response because it will take time for the HRTO to process it if they received it, but her husband constantly says this is sexual harassment and a fake lawsuit....

The Death of FactoryDirect.ca

This is a slight deviation from our typical posts but the topic does sort of fit. I’m going to talk about Factory Direct. It started off in 1995 as an electronics retailer and evolved into a merchant of everything refurbished. It turns out that they are going out of business.

CSIS: Anti-2SLGBTQI+ sentiment linked to Terrorism

Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) has linked the anti-gender and anti-2SLGBTQI+ movements to extreme violence. Since it is against the law to carry a weapon, my only recommendation is to get in shape and learn personal defense, such as martial arts. “CSIS assesses that the violent threat posed by the anti-gender movement is almost certain to continue over the coming year and that violent actors may be inspired by the University of Waterloo attack to carry out their own extreme violence against the 2SLGBTQI+ community or against other targets they view as representing the gender ideology ‘agenda,’” said CSIS spokesperson Eric Balsam in an email to CBC News....

[Memes] Words and their definitions

One of my legal opponents, Roy Schestowitz, loves to use words in which he does not understand the meaning. I mentioned it before in my previous article. Someone in his IRC channel asked him about my lawsuit, asking him if it was true. Roy claimed there was no lawsuit and that it was “inadmissible.” Let’s look at the dictionary Inadmissible: adjective Definition: not admissible Example: The evidence was inadmissible in court....

Techrights Faces Legal Consequences for Roy Schestowitz's Transphobic Content

Mr. Roy Schestowitz is the ringleader in a hate campaign involving transgender and disability discrimination on his website Techrights and his wife’s Tux Machines site.

The bald faced lies he published are designed to spread hate and transphobia towards me and other transgender individuals by defaming me and making fabrications to destroy my reputation online. He is engaging in pure DARVO, pretending to be a victim when he is the perpetrator....
