James is going to be discussing trans issues today on LBC. His show is on now - not sure what time the segment will start, but should be good!

SwearyG Mon 19-Mar-18 10:17:22

Did he divulge what trans issues? Tempted to call in...

Testingnamechange1 Mon 19-Mar-18 10:23:40

Yes, do!

The mystery deaths discussion is interesting.

The swimming pool thing is in today’s Metro.

James is the one that had a proper nasty rant at Posie Parker last year, he is a Fox fan, not a very nice man. Expect him to be scathing about women in general, or at leas the ones that don't agree with him.

The report is quite short and dominated by a large picture of the lady in question and her man breasts grin, so I am not sure that the issues come across clearly. Many readers might just read it as ‘Those crazy feminists pretending to be men’. But perhaps it will cause some to look into it a bit more?

On now!

LemonadeWithACherry Mon 19-Mar-18 10:29:39

No he didn't specify what issues but he said they'd arisen over the weekend, so I think it will be Man Friday.

I like JOB and usually agree with his viewpoint so I hope he doesn't let me down on this issue. He makes the people on the opposing side look utterly stupid so I am fervently hoping the trans activists will be on it!

Oh. Stand down. Just advance notice of it.... As you were.

Ellenripleysalienbaby Mon 19-Mar-18 10:31:33

I thought the Metro thing got the point across really well actually - however, the Twitter comments under the GMB tweet about this show that many people still don't read/listen and engage their brain properly before coming to a conclusion, so it still might not get across to some people!

JOB is a nob who, like so many of his ilk, has no problem with selling women down the river if it makes him look good.

Mouthtrousersafrocknowandthen Mon 19-Mar-18 10:31:44

Wow he's just said he hasn't been able to pick a side. Bit of a change from last year when he was the oracle we must all consult on trans issues. Perhaps he worries he will be on the wrong side.

He “dosnt know” where he stand a ywt. Well that’s news! You can’t be on fence if you say anyone who says they are woman is one. Not sure I can last hour if he goes off being “clever” though.

LemonadeWithACherry Mon 19-Mar-18 10:36:49

Yeah James was pro-self id before, but he does change his mind on topics if he sees enough evidence. He has daughters so hopefully he will peak trans if he can imagine them in a changing room with naked men, or competing against males in sport.

SwearyG Mon 19-Mar-18 10:37:07

Ive spoken to a researcher and said I was one of the women who swam so they’re calling me back at 11.

Testingnamechange1 Mon 19-Mar-18 10:43:49

Good luck.

Ellenripleysalienbaby Mon 19-Mar-18 10:44:18

SwearyG I literally love you. When this is hopefully all over, everyone will look to you and Amy (you are not Amy are you?) and what you did as a turning point in exposing self ID.

James O Brien now umming and ahhhing about this now is huge. Huge!

I hope you get on and get to speak to him.

ShotsFired Mon 19-Mar-18 10:45:14

Goddamn it, I have a conference call at 11. Can someone please record it and stick on youtube/soundcloud? (LBC might do it themselves but not guaranteed and their catchup is subscription/fee)

SwearyG Mon 19-Mar-18 10:48:12

I'm not Amy, I'm a woman who chose to be anonymous, or Hannah depending on your news source, but Amy has inspired me so I'm going public on this. I have another interview with a smaller show on Wednesday.

Fingers crossed I don't fuck it up, or swear.

rowdywoman1 Mon 19-Mar-18 10:50:57

Amy brilliantly kept focussed - self ID is the threat, not transgender people. Good luck

LemonadeWithACherry Mon 19-Mar-18 10:51:53

Good luck Sweary we're all behind you thanks

athingthateveryoneneeds Mon 19-Mar-18 10:53:10

Best of luck, Hannah, we are all behind you!
