The Daily Mail, Times and Telegraph all produced lot of trans-focused content in their Saturday editions and most of it is horrible.
The Daily Mail led the way on Saturday with six pieces having a go at trans people.
First up they have Sarah Harris interviewing Kathleen Stock going on about how “I’ll never work for a UK university again.”
I guess it’s easy to declare you won’t do something when you’re not wanted to do in the first place.
They then use this piece to springboard into another piece by Harris headlined, “… as Cambridge dons boycott feminist’s talk.” The ‘feminist’ in this case is Helen Joyce who believes trans people are a ‘huge problem for a sane world’.
You’d think that would be enough for one edition, but the Mail are not done yet.
They also have a piece about 15 under fours reportedly being “referred to the NHS’s transgender health service in England in the past two years.”
Not content with that, the Mail also continue ‘warning’ Penny Mourdant over her ‘woke’ views which include once saying that trans women are women.
They have two ‘comment’ pieces to remind readers than Mourdant was once supportive of trans people.
The Times run a piece on Penny Mourdant’s bid for Tory leadership in which they note a source saying, “There will be nothing on migration, small boats, trans, it’s focused on the economy, because we don’t have time to waste.”
They then publish a piece by Fariha Karim headlined, “Doctor: Parents said children were trans if they didn’t like gender”.
The Times also cover Ben Elton saying ‘Cancel Culture is not a threat’.
While also covering tech billionaire, Ben Chestnut declaring that “Pronoun choice is harmful”.
Before whipping back to a piece by Alice Jones on Jordan Gray saying ‘It’s OK to joke about trans people’.
The Telegraph cover Helen Joyce going to speak at Cambridge despite a boycott on the same page they ramble on about a ‘transing factory’.
Now, I can hear you all in the back wondering what the hell a ‘transing factory’ is and where this fiction has come from. Well, the LGB Alliance conference is on and it is from there we get this lovely nugget of nonsense from Dr Az Hakeem.
“I was thinking ‘this is mad’,” he said. “And this was 20 years ago. GIDS [Gender Identity Development Service] at the time, the multidisciplinary team involved Mermaids. It was just a transing factory.
“I remember saying to them: ‘This is madness. What we’re doing is madness. These are children. These are three-year-olds.’”
The Telegraph also warn Mourdant about being a decent human being to trans people while they take a full page to tell us all that the Tory right are getting very angry, led by Kemi Badenoch, “the PM who never was”.
