I just came across this. It's a petition by Fair Play for Women asking 38 degrees to stop taking down petitions asking for reasonable debate (trans issues).

If you haven't already, please sign!

I already told 38 degrees exactly what I thought of them and their silencing last time they did this. I'll tell them again in petition form though.

Yeah 38 degrees are awful, they’re happy to throw women under the bus. The original petition was very carefully worded but no, women aren’t allowed to question legislation that affects them.

What it so outrageous is how FPFW's original petition was asking trans people to be respected etc, but changes to the GRA making self ID legal, is too easily exploited by predatory men who can too easily use the legislation to gain access to vulnerable women and girls.

Apparently predatory men are a "vulnerable group" according to 38 degrees.

Makes you sick. Anyway I think this counter petition went up some time ago but I've only just seen it. It's still important.

Fucking sick of being told what women are and aren't allowed to talk about

So pissed off that on the anniversary of women (well some women) getting the vote we are still having to put up with this shit!
