Interesting analysis. What do we think?

Link doesn't work. I think you have to take the 's' out at the beginning. Although I've tried that, still can't make it work. There must be another step.

Does that one work?

Yes, the link works now.

I was already feeling glum, and this hasn't helped. More propaganda and lies.

They're scoffing at the idea that schools would know what a binder is. Schools are already making accommodations for girls wearing binders as they recognise that their breathing is affected and so they can't participate fully, or at all, in PE and sports.

Urgh!

It's not actually a Transgender Trend article. It's a piece written from a pro trans perspective, rubbishing Transgender Trend.

Yes, it works fine.

I have to say, I couldn't get through it though.

People who use the word hysterical, really should come onto mumsnet to find out why it's such a tell.

I read the first four objections. They are non-objections.

So tedious. No one is denying the existence of gender dysphoria. What they are saying is it's very rare.

And I would bet a considerable amount of money that absolutely no one can use the gender dysphoria argument to account for 10 girls coming out at once at St Paul's school.

And the day that Stonewall publically assert that homosexuality is based on same-sex attraction, is the day I won't consider this ideology homophobic.

Yes it is not a very cogently argued article is it?

There is a lot of propaganda out there, being turned around quite quickly, about anything questioning trans ideology. I don't know where it's coming from but it seems unusually organised.

I see a rationalwiki thing appearing which claims to be based on science but has utter rubbish written in it at least in some sections.

When you google women killed in 2017 you get mostly transwomen links

All very odd.

All very odd.

Transwomen are over represented in IT/programming.

What's unbelievable is that individuals can have this kind of impact.

Makes you wonder what other shit we swallow without realising.

The Telegraph is hardly a reliable source of unbiased information

LOL. Whilst this is true, whoever wrote this pile of shite is linking stonewall studies as their 'proof' grin Whilst of course all tabloids are biased to some extent, I would believe the telegraph before I believed stonewall in its current state. Hell I would believe the daily mail before I believed stonewall and their dodgy stats.

And yet again, comparing therapy to get someone to accept their body (akin to therapy to treat anorexia) to gay conversion therapy, which was using disgusting methods to try and get someone to be something they are NOT.

I do wonder if those who say that therapy to try and help someone come to terms with their sexed body also find the way anorexia is treated abhorrent and vile. Clearly we should be agreeing with the anorexic person that they are obese and arranging diet pills during the wait for a gastric band and lipo. As people are whatever they think they are in their head, and therapy is just disgusting, medicalization is clearly much much better hmm
