Two cricket balls to illustrate the question "should I cut off my balls"?

Should I cut off my balls or wait for the NHS to fix trans...

Here's a quick update to where I'm at with my trans healthcare journey in the UK; questioning whether I should cut off my balls...

Elon Musk is cisgender but you could get banned for saying so

The latest out of Elon Musk's Twitter is just as absurd and ridiculous as the rest of it; he has stated he believes the word "cisgender" to be a slur and that saying something like "Elon Musk is cisgender" could be harassment.
Testosterone for women ‘a life-changer’ James Beal - Social Affairs Editor Researchers are developing the world’s first testosterone patch for women with menopausal symptoms, and the UK could be the first country to test it. Medherant, a company founded by David Haddleton, a professor of chemistry at the University of Warwick, aims to start clinical trials this autumn. If these go well, Haddleton said the potential to improve women’s lives was huge, including helping them with their sex drive — as they cannot be prescribed testosterone for this on the NHS at present. Some instead turn to irregular doses of a gel that is approved only for use onmen, experts say. Testosterone is an essential hormone for women and its production drops heavily after the menopause. Oestrogen and progesterone hormone replacement therapy (HRT) patches — which stick to the skin to deliver medications — are available. However, there is no testosterone patch for women suffering with adverse symptoms from the menopause. Professor Haddleton said: “The work we’re doing at Medherant and at Warwick isn’t just theoretical, but instead aimed at a problem women are facing which can drastically affect their everyday lives and jobs. “This could deliver a product that is much needed and is just not available. With the technology already proven to work we can use our new patch to remove needless misery from women’s daily lives. We hope this will transform life for women suffering from postmenopause issues nationally and indeed globally.” Guidelines issued by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in 2015 recommended testosterone supplementation be considered for menopausal women with low sexual desire if HRT alone was not effective. The new patch is intended to address this gap in menopause products and provide treatment for women that can be made widely available.

The Times’ hypocrisy: Testosterone for cis women a “Life-Changer” but poison for trans people?

Times' hypocrisy: praises testosterone patch for menopausal women, yet demonises its use for trans people. Question media's double standards.

JK Rowling should go to prison; inside propaganda

The anti-trans crusade wages on in the media with multiple different talk shows having shimed in to debate whether JK Rowling should go to prison. This following a misleading story in the Daily Mail.

What is justice for Brianna Ghey?

Now that the trial has concluded and the sentence handed down its time to consider what is justice for Brianna Ghey? Some think its the life sentences for the youths who murderered her, but I'm not so sure.
An image of a painting by Horace Fisher titled “Alas, poor Yorick!” of the scene from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The scene shows three men in a graveyard. Two are well dressed and positioned above the rag cloth dressed man who looks up at them from inside an open grave. One of the well dressed men is holding a skull.

Former Anti-SJW YouTuber Gets Shoutout From JK Rowling

Sinead Watson, a detransitioned woman, has campaigned and been part of the anti-trans movement even before she detransitioned. This because she had always taken a position against other transgender people and feminists in general with her anti-SJW YouTube content. She even got a shout out by JKR’s previous favourite Scottish woman, Magdalen Berns.

Chest binding; organisations who provide safety information are a “beacon of light”

With all the talk of chest binders after mainstream media took aim at them and Mermaids UK we are seeing the same pattern. The voices of those actually affected by the issues are not being heard. Correcting that for Trans Writes is Keith Ramsted with his chest binding story about the need for harm reduction;
A photo of Fallon Fox and competitor Tamikka Brents squaring up before the big fight. Just kidding, its actually a photo of cosplayers from video game convention E3 dressed as Tekken characters peforming pre-match poses. I thought it would be funny to use a photo that wasn't Fallon Fox and Tamikka Brents for reasons that will become obvious when you read further into the article.

Fallon Fox hits back after BBC apologise for platforming her

After anti-trans groups, some who have notably said some very awful things themselves, complained to the BBC about comments made by former MMA fighter, Fallon Fox; the BBC apologised. Just like that! No protests, months of organising or appealing ECU decisions necessary! Weird!

A plea to Esther Ghey and a quick guide on invading children’s privacy

A year on from the murder of her daughter, the trial barely being over, the media still desperate to make her killers famous and the Prime Minister refusing to apologise for transphobia; I cannot stress how much I admire the strength of Esther Ghey. But I must warn against the path she is taking.

BBC’s obfuscation of transphobia in social media toxicity study

The BBC's obfuscation of transphobia has reached a new low with a report on social media toxicity. The report has allegedly been censored in "real time" to obfuscate transphobia, with the article also failing to mention transphobia's contribution to the figures - amongst other issues.
