Ignore Stonewall: Britain is a tolerant country for trans people like me

Of the 350 people who died in the year to 30 September 2020, 82 per cent were from Latin America, including 152 from Brazil and 57 from Mexico. The stories are heartbreaking in their brevity. […] Fortunately, the UK is a much safer place for transgender people like me.

Today marks Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR). Every year on 20 November, clusters of people gather to remember the hundreds of transgender people whose lives were cut short by violence in the preceding year. In 2020, like everything else, the candles, the readings and the list of names will be Zoomed across the aether. But who are these people? It’s true that they were trans but overwhelmingly they were disadvantaged and living on the edge – often in prostitution – and mainly in the global south. It’s a far cry from the experiences of many trans people living in the relative safety of Britain.

So, doctors can ignore children’s wishes on life-saving blood transfusions – but not potentially life-wrecking hormone treatments?

Young people do not always know best, and adults have a responsibility to keep children safe from themselves as well as others.

Doctors override the wishes of children if they believe respecting them may ‘restrict their options in future.’ If hormone therapy can render people infertile, surely they should resist prescribing it till they are more mature.

How to respond to the latest gender recognition inquiry

If we don’t tell the Committee how changes to gender recognition might affect us, who will? This is not a call for reasoned arguments – they have all been made repeatedly – it is a call for evidence, for testimony on the potential impact this could have on ourselves, our work and our families.

The House of Commons Women and Equalities Committee launched yet another inquiry into Gender Recognition Act reform last week. Either they are gluttons for punishment, or this really matters to someone. This is the third time since 2015 that Westminster has asked the public what they think about gender recognition. When you add this to the two separate Scottish consultations, it becomes apparent that transgender inquiries are now an annual event.

Why are taxpayers funding Stonewall diversity programmes?

The idea that Stonewall may be reviewing public policies and training civil servants – while we are paying for it – is a terrifying prospect. With Stonewall advising our public bodies, no wonder the government has lost its way when it comes to trans rights.

Stonewall UK was established in 1989 in response to the now infamous Section 28, which prohibited councils from intentionally promoting homosexuality or teaching about the acceptability of homosexuality in schools. In the years since its founding, Section 28 has been repealed, the age of consent has been levelled, and equal marriage was secured in 2013. In other words, the key political goals of lesbians, gay and bisexual people have been secured in the UK.

Forget he/she/they; now we must use ‘neo-pronouns’ like ve/vis/vir, ze/zem/zir & ey/em/eir. It’s nonsense

This is more than being ‘kind’: It is social engineering and its promoters include NGOs, large corporations and state broadcasters. Something very odd is going on and it is unclear why.

The social engineering around new terms to describe ourselves are baffling & unnecessary. Why are charities, multinationals & broadcasters like the BBC so keen to push this agenda and brainwash our children?

Искалеченные жизни

Но в книге приведены предпосылки, выявлены проблемы, объяснены последствия и предлагаются чёткие и реалистичные решения. Её необходимо прочитать тем, у кого есть дети, тем, кто работает с детьми, и тем, кому их судьба небезразлична.

«Непоправимый ущерб» — так называется недавно вышедшая книга, в которой рассказывается о том, как девочек-подростков обманным путём заставляют поверить в то, что они хотят стать мужчинами, и подталкивают к приёму препаратов для подавления полового созревания, гормонов и проведению двойной мастэктомии.

Privileged students are weaponising trans rights

If anyone has an “obstinate or intolerant devotion to one’s own opinions and prejudices”, it is certainly not Ann Henderson.

We are in dangerous times when adults who should know better allow student politicians to play the trans card so they can act with impunity. On campuses across the country, the pink and blue flag is being used to excuse the bullying and harassment of anyone who does not adhere to gender identity ideology, and its catechism, “trans women are women”.

Shame on the Cambridge students hounding Kevin Price

While reasonable people have looked away, gender identity ideology has spread unchallenged. Behind a veneer of progressive inclusivity, it demands total compliance.

The Tories may have taken self-identification of legal gender off the table, but the transgender thought police have certainly not gone away. Their latest victim is Kevin Price who, until last Thursday, was a Labour member of Cambridge City council, in a seat he had held for ten years.

Stonewall are wrong to oppose rugby’s trans women ban

Perhaps Stonewall might listen to trans people like [Miranda] Yardley who, rather than moan about a problem, found a solution? But solutions like this are not on Stonewall’s radar.

Friday’s announcement that biological males should not play women’s rugby may be sound like common sense, but it has already provoked a furore. The new guidelines published by World Rugby, organisers of the Rugby World Cup, apply to the elite and international levels of the game. In their statement they explained,

‘As with many other sports, the physiological differences between males and females necessitate dedicated men’s and women’s contact rugby categories for safety and performance reasons. Given the best available evidence for the effects of testosterone reduction on these physical attributes for transgender women, it was concluded that safety and fairness cannot presently be assured for women competing against trans women in contact rugby.’
