An Act Of Civil Disobedience

When you protest and break the law you get arrested. When you burn private property you can expect to be arrested no matter what your cause is.

The woman accused of burning a Pride flag at the University of British Columbia made her first appearance in court April 26, 2016, and immediately asked the court to dismiss the charge against her.

“This is a matter between a student and her school,” Brooklyn Marie Fink told justice of the peace Barbara Brown-Sayson at the Richmond courthouse. “This isn’t a matter of mischief, so it should just be summarily dismissed.”

Fink is charged with one count of mischief under $5,000 in connection with the Feb 6, 2016 burning of a Pride flag raised at UBC for OUTweek.

“It’s going to be dealt with at school, as a professional matter between professionals,” Fink told the court. She says she’ll face a non-academic misconduct hearing at UBC on May 10.
Um… it doesn’t work that way. When you destroy private property it becomes a criminal matter.
Fink says she was just trying to live her life “stealth” — as a woman, rather than a trans woman — when UBC hosted OUTweek.

For transsexual patients like herself, she says, “we don’t want anything to do with that.”

She wishes transgender activists would “stop assuming I’m in on their political movement.”
She goes to say,
“LGBT politics have ruined my life,” she later told a media scrum outside the Richmond courthouse. When transgender people loudly demand their rights, they provoke transphobia, she says, and that gets “supplanted onto me as well.”
Well you got to where you are today because of past activist, the ones who protested and lost their jobs, their homes, their freedom, and those who bleed for us.

We complain about the medical profession making us jump through hoops and then we make our own hoops.

We do not get to choose who is trans and who is not trans. We cannot be judge, we cannot pass sentences on who is trans.
