Labour's Position On The Gender Recognition Act Is A Huge Mistake

 In the past few weeks I have been called trash, disgusting, despicable, f**ing scum, compared to a Nazi, a white supremacist, and a supporter of apartheid South Africa. I have had the insults ‘TERF’ (trans exclusionary radical feminist), transphobe and bigot aimed at me too many times to count.

Puberty blocker use in Haiti and the aftermath

For years, Sharissa Derricott, 30, had no idea why her body seemed to be failing. At 21, a surgeon replaced her deteriorated jaw joint. She’s been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition. Her teeth are shedding enamel and cracking.

None of it made sense to her until she discovered a community of women online who describe similar symptoms and have one thing in common: All had taken a drug called Lupron.

Ateacher who was accused of “misgendering” a child was told by police that she had committed a hate crime.

The battle over gender has turned bloody

When is it OK to punch a woman? I’ve pondered this question since Wednesday evening when I watched a 60-year-old in specs and sensible shoes called Maria being smacked in the face. Yet I learn from her assailant’s defenders that it’s fine. Punch harder next time, guys! Because “acts of physical violence against those who are systemically violent are self-defence”.

Me Too, Now What? (sex, the left, and gender identity)

Sparked by the exposure of Harvey Weinstein as an alleged serial sex offender, a mass confessional has taken place recently via social media, in which women everywhere have held up their hands and said, me too: the things that Weinstein did to those women have happened to me too.

Mermaids CEO reveals her views

Excerpt:  "Most worrying is the clearly fixed diagnosis of ‘transgender’ that the charity brings to their view of ‘gender variant’ kids, with no allowance made for any other interpretation of a child or adolescent’s behaviour. There is also the conflation of ‘sex’ and ‘gender’ which characterises the language of all transgender advocate organisations; the idea that a child who transitions actually becomes a member of the opposite sex, while at the same time denying the reality of biological sex itself."

Thanks to trans activism, 2017 saw a return to old-school, sexist dismissals of women and women’s rights

When academics and leftists dismiss women’s concerns about their rights as a “moral panic,” they place themselves among the ranks of anti-feminists and the alt-right.

Labour left splits over trans rights

In the battle over transgender rights in the Labour Party a new front has opened up between Momentum and the trade union Unite.

Momentum’s Jon Lansman and Unite’s Andrew Murray appear to be at loggerheads over whether to allow people to self-identify without the need for medical or other certification that they have changed gender.

Judith Green: Transgender Activists and the Real War on Women.

How hard is it for women to talk freely about sex, gender and the law? Not very, I used to think. I’d heard about a few no-platforming incidents on campuses, where speakers including Germaine Greer were blocked from appearing because of their views. What I hadn’t realised was just how far the problem has spread. In the past few months, I’ve discovered first hand that political debate is narrowing for everyone — and that fear and intimidation are being used increasingly to curtail free speech.

Gappy Tales "A crisis of misogyny: a plea to the Labour party"

Late in the 1980’s, in the time when I was an insufferable and glam rock obsessed adolescent (don’t judge me), there was a particular science lesson in which my usual absent window gazing was interrupted. Sat at the desk in front — and no doubt equally bored — some plooky specimen had taken it upon himself to swivel around in his chair and call my best friend, “a slag.”

Janice Turner: Even a party for women won't take on the trans lobby

I feel bad about Heather Brunskell Evans. A few months ago I was asked to speak on Radio 4’s Moral Maze about how proposed changes to the Gender Recognition Act will affect women. Instead I recommended Heather, far better qualified as editor of a recent book on the medical transition of children.

The Violent Misogyny of the Gender debate

Journalists and politicians talk a lot about freedom of speech, and rightly so, because the ability to express thoughts and opinions without fear or restraint is the foundation of democracy. We must be free to question, free to doubt, or we are not free at all.

How ‘cis lesbian’ and ‘cis gay man’ reveal the homophobia in the transgender movement

Lesbians and gay men transgress the fundamental heterosexual norm of gender because the sexual and romantic partners of lesbians and gay men are people who are of the same sex. There is therefore no such thing as a ‘cis lesbian’ or a ‘cis gay man’. The use of ‘cis’ in this way is an attempt by transgender individuals, who are often themselves heterosexual males, to impute gendered privilege to homosexuals over heterosexuals. As anyone who has ever been a victim of ‘gay bashing‘ will tell you, this is the opposite of the truth.

Guide leaders are rebelling against a policy that lets boys claiming to be female share showers and tents with girls on camping trips. The organisation forbids leaders telling parents.

Helen Watts, 33, is one of at least 20 rebel unit leaders to write to Girlguiding’s national headquarters in protest at the rules, published in January last year, which apply to all girl guides aged 5 to 25.

Janice Turner Transactivists think debate is hate speech

A friend wants to organise a public debate on changes to the Gender Recognition Act (GRA) with speakers from both sides: trans activists and sceptical feminists. Good luck with that, I said. It was probably easier to get all parties to the table for the Oslo accords.
