Saw this on fb. Don't like the express but hard to argue with any of this:

Excellent article!
Telling it just like it is!

I must say, the reaction to India Willoughby on the Big Brother thread (telly section) is interesting. IW seems to have peak transed a great many Mumsnetters.

Looking at cbb and Rylan's twitter feeds, IW seems to have peak transed whole swathes of the population with their 'I AM A REAL WOMAN" roaring and offensive treatment of GinUwine. People are universally not impressed.

It just highlights how their delusions can only be enforced by bullying - all clearly evidenced in a few interactions. Brilliant!

It’s a brilliant article. Could have been written by an MN Spartacus.

Excellent article.

The mainstream press is beginning to get there.

Bloody hell. That didn't pull any punches. 'A licence for perverts'.

This is what 98% of the public think.

That is what 98% of the public who think, think.

I agree the content is good, but the expression is poor.
With a few tweaks, this could read like the homophobia of old, and so it plays into the 'wrong side of history' narrative that has silenced many people, and in effect, delayed the opposition to transgenderism. It will play well with the express readership, I'm sure, but that doesn't feel comfortable to me.
I think we need to be careful about this, especially if (as suggested on another thread) the Labour party is treading softly round this as they don't want to alienate their young supporters. What we see in that article is the 'common sense' tone, we also need the radical, gender critical argument
