I’m hoping this makes it clicky.

Bit of a something and nothing article, but at least more and more journalists are starting to engage their brain about the issue in a more critical way

In terms of getting the message over to the uninformed middle I think it's good. It's short, it covers the main points that can be grasped by your average person, and it avoids any of the off-putting jargon and abbreviations.

Having got nowhere with my robot Tory MP I might actually send that with a small addition pointing out what hormone-based transition means for young people.

It's also great that it's in a free paper hundreds of thousands of people pick up & read on their way home from work. Whole new audience hopefully.

I think it's fine, because it's emphatic these ideas are nonsense, instead of trying to give an inch.

We take those arguments for granted and they are self evident to us, but it's great to see them laid out in a popular free paper. They really are quite radical for some. Wonder if George is baiting Theresa again smile
