Be interesting if it actually gets debated.

I suppose it will be a PR job for the TRAs.

Oh, thanks for the heads up! Just switched over...

Terftastic Thu 22-Feb-18 20:07:05

Thanks for the tip off - watching now. Let's see - I'm not too hopeful our concerns will be addressed tbh.

OhFucko Thu 22-Feb-18 20:07:24

Starting with drag queens...that'll go down well!

I don't think I can risk my blood pressure by watching it! Relying on this thread for the lowdown first!

They love the 48% of trans kids attempting suicide statastic.

Hulo Thu 22-Feb-18 20:10:54

Don't think I can ear to watch it. I'll just get to annoyed I'm sure!

There’s always Miss Marple if I start shouting at the tv too much - I’ve started already....

SmurfOrTerf Thu 22-Feb-18 20:11:28

Sittin are you me ? I turned over to avoid it, I thought I'd see what the rest of you made of it first

Terftastic Thu 22-Feb-18 20:13:25

I've got to "get with the program". That's what I have to do, apparently.

Doobigetta Thu 22-Feb-18 20:13:35

71 genders on that fucking wall, and I did not see "woman" there.

thenightsky Thu 22-Feb-18 20:14:52

Sensible women on now (I hope)

Terftastic Thu 22-Feb-18 20:15:03

We're not allowed "woman" anymore....

LizzieSiddal Thu 22-Feb-18 20:15:22

Oh some sense at last!

Doobigetta Thu 22-Feb-18 20:15:29

These mothers being interviewed are great, though- are they three of us?

Trailedanderror Thu 22-Feb-18 20:15:44

Just turned on. Sane at the moment!

Terftastic Thu 22-Feb-18 20:16:15

Yes - I am those 3 women.

Trailedanderror Thu 22-Feb-18 20:16:37

I spoke too soon. sad
Oh ffs! 'We're uncomfortable with the pace of change'
No we're not!

OhFucko Thu 22-Feb-18 20:16:57

No, children don't 'settle into a binary.' They ARE a binary.

They are girls, or they are boys. Regardless of feelz.

ijustwannadance Thu 22-Feb-18 20:17:13

No woman or man. Just cis.

Dallia Thu 22-Feb-18 20:18:02

Also can’t bear to watch, might catch up depending on how this thread goes.

soundsystem Thu 22-Feb-18 20:18:18

@Doobiegetta, was going to say the same thing!

I'm quite happy for people to identify as two-spirit or whatever they like, but did I hear right that those 71 genders cover 1% of people? So presumably a lot of other people identify as a "woman" or a "man"?
