Granted the sample is only just over 1000, but that’s a standard polling size & they’re very careful with demographics.

If only the virtue signalling politicians would listen.

That is interesting, thanks OP

If anyone questions the sample size, I have a study that Mermaids used to show suicide statistics based on seven people.

Just sayin'.

Almost every survey has a sample size of 1,000 adults.
These results are extremely encouraging and nothing less than I would have expected.

I went to the linked article, and a commenter says, "People probably were this prejudiced about gays in the 1950s. We got over that, we'll get over this." (I paraphrase, from memory.)

Big difference:

gay rights are about applying civil rights equally to gays. Nobody loses by it.

Trans demands are to define women and use their space.

That is NOT an equal application of civil rights. No other group is denied the right to self-define. Only women are supposed to erase themselves for the sake of others.

That has nothing to do with rights. It's misogynist activism.

Sample size of 1000ish generally considered fine but credibility depends on how they are selected, as in it should be representative of the population.

And not with self selected contributees like that one oft quoted by Mermaids and Paris Lees.

The comments are interesting - I thought the one about the offshore worker coming out as trans, and some poor girl being pressurised to share a cabin with him was sad,

I wonder how many stories like this there are (like the university students ones, and the "female" wards ones) that we never hear because to report it is transphobic and to complain is bigoted hmm

Mandatory arbitration dramatically reduces victims ability to report violations of law.

One thing that occurs to me from reading the comments in those articles is that it's so abusive to threaten suicide so that you can get your own way.

Yep, big red flashing sign of an abusive relationship.

Mandatory arbitration dramatically reduces victims ability to report violations of law.

Specifically how?

Believe you, just interested.

There is a ton of info out there from workplace harassment to unis not reporting crimes to the police and punishing students who go outside the internal system for adjudicating infractions.
