Norway: Lesbian faces three years in jail for saying men can’t be lesbians

By Jonathon Turley

We have a new assault on free speech in Europe. Tonje Gjevjon, a lesbian filmmaker and actress, is now facing up to three years in prison. Her crime? Saying on Facebook that a man cannot become a lesbian.

Gjevjon was put under investigation for making the comments about Norwegian activist Christine Jentoft, a transgender female that often refers to herself as a lesbian mother. On Facebook Gjevjon wrote “It’s just as impossible for men to become a lesbian as it is for men to become pregnant. Men are men regardless of their sexual fetishes.”

This is obviously protected speech in the United States. However, in many countries, it is not a criminal offense to express an opposing view on gender identity.

Jeftoft has previously brought criminal charges against those who questioned his sexual identification.

Free speech in Norway and much of Europe is in a free fall. In 2020, the country amended its penal code that added “gender identity and gender expression” as protected categories from hate speech.

Those expressing contrary views can face up to three years in jail. Not only does the law criminalize public comments, but you can receive a year in jail even for comments made in private.

The impact of these laws was evident in a recent poll of German citizens. Only 18% of Germans feel free to express their opinions in public. 59% of Germans did not even feel free expressing themselves in private among friends. And just 17% felt free to express themselves on the Internet.

We have been discussing the ongoing controversies — and prosecutions — over what are called Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists (TERFs). The term is used for feminists who have voiced opposition to transgender policies and laws that they believe “erase” or “marginalize” biological women. The most famous such figure is author J.K. Rowling who has not only been the subject of a global cancel campaign but was recently listed by Buzzfeed with figures like cult leader Jim Jones, Benedict Arnold and O.J. Simpson as “villains.”

  1. The loss of Norse paganism is to blame because if the Norse hadn’t been Christianised to turn the other ass cheek then they’d be taking the freaks out with no fear of death and cries of “Valhalla!”

    1. So charges filed for saying the truth. Gotcha. Didn’t they crucify a man a long time ago for that?? None of this should be surprising.

    2. Jesus wasn’t effeminate, but modern people don’t get that. They think the love He commands has something to do with feelings, rather than reason or self-control. That is not to say He had no feelings, but loving your neighbour means looking out for what is good for him, rather than doing actions that make him feel good. Sometimes what is good for one’s neighbour would not make him feel good, like preaching the gospel when he gets angry at anything to do with God, because he doesn’t understand that religious truths are like mathematical truths. 2 + 2 is 4 even in the Amazon and even when people don’t understand arithmetic.

  2. Oo, thor makes a cogent point. Christianity = Weakness Not back in the days of yore, but now. We live in effeminate times. The church helped this come about by making Jesus a pacifist.

  3. The whole situation is insane. A female sodomite criticizing a man who became a woman who wants to be a lesbian and refers to himself as a mother. One flew over the Cuckoos Nest but even crazier. And this is real life, not a story!
    Come,Lord Jesus,Come!
