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

Equalities Minister Mike Freer’s bumbling resignation as UK Government collapses

I see this for what it is, a cynical political move designed to support the (now successful) ousting of a crap Prime Minister by those like Mike Freer. It has nothing to do with constituents, supporters, LGBT+ people, diversity or Margaret Thatcher's evil bones. It has everything to do with playing the game and making sure there's still a Tory party after the end of all this scandal. All so they can all keep their nice cushy jobs blowing smoke up each other's arses and paying lip-service to their job titles.

ECU responds to complaint about transphobic BBC article

My personal, Gemma Stone, opinion on this is that we should escalate it as far as it will go; and then keep on complaining if we have to. It seems like a minor thing, one article about us portraying us as sexually violent - but its more than that. In my opinion a victory here is getting the article taken down and sending the message to the BBC that what they did was dangerous, harmful and will not be tolerated.
