Catherine Brennan’s “Sorry about Your Dick” TweetPic Ignites Trans Firestorm

We Win! Update at bottom of the post!

This woman, Attorney Catherine M. Brennan Partner at Hudson Cook LLP ….

….who’s protected twitter account is @bugbrennan sent the below Twitter picture to Marti Abernathey, a transgender woman who writes and tweets for the TransAdvocate.

So what’s the big deal you ask? Just a imbecilic moronic juvenile insult, right? Not so, Cathy Brennan is a liaison to the American Bar Association’s Committee on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and contributed to the…

So while Brennan’s not insulting transgender people with asinine twitter insults what other things has she done.

To name a couple Brennan co authored the now infamous letter to the UN intentionality timing it so the transgender community had no time to repute letter her before the commission ended. The crux of the letter was this paragraph…

when she makes it clear she does not believe a trans woman is female or should be allowed in public accommodations because to do so would place woman in danger of rape of fore mentioned transsexuals (men)!

But her most egregious conduct to date was to out a 17 year old trans youth to his school knowingly endangering his life.

So what’s this vengeful immoral hater of transgender people doing on a LGBT legal commission? That’s what I would like to know. I have resisted contacting Brennan’s professional contacts for years but I think its time we did that and I’m not alone.

Update…..WE WIN!!!!

    What a bitch! She should not be representing the LGBT Community on anything. She’s a bigoted bitch giving lesbians a really bad image.
    Frankly, her photo looks more masculine than many Trans women I know. Maybe her comments are rooted in jealousy?

    Brennan’s obsessive hatred of trans women has hit a new low.

    That having been said, can we please discuss our disapproval with Brennan’s actions in a non-misogynistic manner, refraining from words like “b**ch”, etc.?

    I get that she’s a pretty terrible person. But then again I have met a few trans women in my time who are total assholes… is it okay for cis people to refer to those particular trans women as “tr***ies” then?

    Do wonder sometimes whether she’s making a career move. Getting out of the credit check side of the business and into the privacy part. After all she is building up an impressive record of unethically violating privacy without actually breaking the law, something the firm’s corporate clients might appreciate.

    Sorry, Kelli, am I missing something?! Where is the petition? This Cathy Brennan has spewed her hate for too long, and to think she has influence where it might impact our community is horrifing! No ABA, no UN, no public voice. She is a menace! Keep up the vigilance Kelli!!

    I am sorry LizinLouie, I posted this on they fly this morning and forgot to finish the petition link. Its there now, however Marti over at TransAdvocate is saying Brennan was removed today. Brennan’s name is still on the PDF report but that might just be a technicality. I will call them in the morning and report back.

    Thanks everyone for commenting, but please keep in this mind. Brennan will try and exploit anything she perceives as threatening. Brennan has a deck with 52, as much as that is questioned, however my experience is that every one of those 52 are victim cards.

    Linda Rusch says that Catherine Brennan is no longer in that position. She served in that position for one year, from 2008-2009.

    The 2010-2011 commision report lists Brennan as a liasion. Today the ABA told me she was removed. What did Brennan contribute during her association with that commision? If it was something positive for the trans community that would be a first for her. One thing for certain, Brennans peers are aware of who she.

    Hey everybody. She is still doing it, and posting crap about people I know at her pretenbian wordpress site. Apparently the complaints haven’t worked completely.

    Ada dei Aiutrix this is the first time I have ever agreed censoring anyone was the best response. but in Brennan’s case I don’t think its just the best response I think its about time. Signed.

    BTW did you know she once maliciously outed a transgender minor to his school? a transgender

    *Maliciously outed a transgender minor to THEIR school.

    Rufus Ulrik is genderqueer/non-binary, NOT a trans man & uses “they/them/their” pronouns.

    From: their partner, Karis

    I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours today, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours.

    It’s pretty value enough for me. In my view, if all web owners
    and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the net
    will likely be much more helpful than ever before.

    Wow people will believe anything these days.
