Canadian parental rights advocate Billboard Chris refuses to call Australian trans activist 'he/him' despite judge's order

"I will not be complying with this, " Elston wrote. "I'm not lying for an activist judge."

On Thursday, the judge overseeing "Billboard Chris" Elston's appeal of an order to remove a post on X that called a trans-identifying female activist Teddy Cook as a woman declared that Cook cannot be referred to as female in any way during the proceedings. 

Elston vowed to continue doing so anyways, making it clear that he was prepared to risk facing criminal charges.  

"The [eSafety Office] ordered my post taken down partly because I called Teddy Cook a woman," Elston wrote on X. "Now in the appeal, before anything has even really started, the judge says we can’t call Teddy Cook a woman." 

"I will not be complying with this," he declared. "Teddy Cook is a woman. Find me in contempt. Arrest me at the hearing. Whatever. I'm not lying for an activist judge." 

In a follow-up post, Elston explained that the judge also failed to take into account the fact that Cook "has a professional working relationship with the [eSafety Office] as a director of ACON," which is a government-funded group that bills itself as a "leader in community health, inclusion and HIV responses for people of diverse sexualities and genders." 

"They literally work together," Elston said of Cook and the office, "but the judge in my hearing yesterday said he didn't see why that would be relevant to my case." 
Cook is a controversial figure, often posting on social media content that includes public nudity, bondage parties, and bestiality. Despite this, Cook was appointed to a World Health Organization expert panel, among other positions. 
Elston's post, which was critical of Cook's activism, was deemed unacceptable by the Australian government. When he refused to remove it, the Aussies threatened to fine X, which in turn blocked the content in the country. 
X has since announced plans to pursue legal action against the Australian government in the name of free speech.
