That you resort to the lie that we want to debate people’s right to exist shows that your leadership of Stonewall is absolutely untenable. Instead of fostering healthy & respectful debate you have contributed to fear & intolerance, demonisating many women & LGBT ppl. Disgraceful
Fabulous response – thank you @stonewalluk for your continued support for people who are transgender. I am mortified that some gay people are jumping on the anti-trans band wagon – have they forgotten so quickly that these same arguments were used so recently to deny their rights
There may well be an anti-trans bandwagon and that would be an ugly thing. But there is also at least one conflict of Rights, that needs discussion between the conflicting parties, to be resolved. Strawman nonsense won’t do that.
I think we just leave them to it, with every rabidly irration tweet, with every ounce of hate they share; we win a little more. You’d think they’d figure that out, but I’m not sure smarts is their strong point.
What’s more likely? That a large percentage of left-wing lesbians have suddenly become bigoted or that we have concerns about certain aspects of trans ideology being homophobic? You no longer represent my interests, but that is to be expected when 95% of your board is men.
Stonewall are pushing misogynistic & homophobic policies under the guise of ‘trans rights’. Contributing to inequality in the uk just to line their pockets. Many LGBT people are speaking out. Join them.
You allowed quasi-religious dogmatism 2 turn this discourse into a misogynistic onslaught on feminists (partic’ly lesbians) who critique the core notions of gender. You have ignored or misrepresented dissent and have re-legitimised profoundly sexist stereotypes. You’re bullies
Ruth I heard you on the radio. You’re good at you’re job…which is apparently misrepresenting the law, misrepresenting the real concerns of women, defending the misdirection of gay boys and girls into seeking physical transition, and betraying lesbians.
