The transphobic hate-campaign is still mobilising on The Society of Authors and Joanne Harris in particular. This has culminated in the author feeling pressured to speak up in support of her trans son.
During the Allison Bailey tribunal we heard a lot about "The cotton ceiling". Which is a phrase used primarily by anti-trans activists nowadays to frame transgender women in particular as predatory men. This is a deliberately unfair reading meant to monster transgender women.
So yeah, Rachel Reeves, if you have a problem with transgender women using the bathroom or changing areas? Then you can wait outside. As can any other transphobe. I am not asking for permission to use women's spaces, I am asserting my rights to not be discriminated against for being transgender.
Twitch streamer Clara Sorrenti, also known as Keffals, has been under siege from users of a cyberstalking website after she had armed police raid her home due to a fraudulent email. Sorrenti began #DropKiwiFarms to get CloudFlare to stop hosting the site.
Put simply; GRC or not, the law states that discrimination against transgender people is not lawful in the vast majority of circumstances. (Which I only add because single-sex exemptions exist, but have never been tested in law)
I do not care to weigh in on the discourse surrounding single-sex schools in general, but I am telling you that in my experience at an all-girlls school I was not protected from sexism, gender conformity, or transness (even before this became the boogeyman in the UK). Teaching LGBTQIA+ topics is an absolute must in helping equip students to understand and protect themselves from the experiences such as mine.
Writing to "Stonewall, Mermaids and all your friends" Kavanagh says he "means this" before showing a tweet he had made previously which is just violent threats all the way through.

Your mutilation of these little humand because they were gay will be nothing compared to what I will do to you legally. You think you are ghouls wait till I deal with you bastard and I mean to", but in all caps.
Specifically, it was viewed as such because it did not require any medical intervention. It respected bodily autonomy! You could and can still obtain a new birth certificate without ever desiring hormones and surgery. Sure, you are still subject to the intrusive Gender Recognition Panel's whims, about to be set back a bunch of cash you probably couldn't afford, gatekept by a crap healthcare system to hell and have no non-binary options at all. But theoretically, its totally possible to be a woman with a penis, by law.
An article posted to The Times has led people to believe 1000 families are suing The Tavistock, a clinic which includes the gender identity development service for trans youth. The rhetoric is being shared online as a statement of fact.
Rugby is community, family and recreation, and I never for a moment believed that we would see the governing body of English Rugby, the RFU, instigate a poorly thought through, mishandled, unscientific and exclusionary transgender rugby ban, yet, this is exactly what happened on the 30th July 2022.
