Just that really. A point of interest that they have publised the letter written by academics from UCL

www.theguardian.com/society/2020/feb/20/womans-place-uk-is-not-a-trans-exclusionist-hate-group

Footnote: Wont be surprised at all if they then print another letter signed by an even greater number of academics saying WPUK are a have groups and trans students are living in fear of them.

WTAF? I mean, yes of course they'll publish another letter condemning the terfs by eleventy billion people who vaguely work in connection with a university academics.

But, just wow. If even the Grauniad admits something's going on...

It’s a great letter too - thank you to all the brave academics who have put their name to it. Speaking truth to power shouldn’t be brave in this day and age, but it is. Well done UCL for hosting the conference too.

This puts UCL in such a good light compared to the craven rubbish we’ve seen from some of our other academic institutions.

The Guardian though. No way no how. Too little too late and I will never forgive them their betrayal.

Bless UCL. Hopefully this will signal some return to academic integrity.

Thank God some feminist academics have held the line through all this. And thank God they are now getting some solid backing at last.

What, without even an "BTW our official editorial position is that these women should be shunned by society" intro?

The train is turning, friends.

Wow. Things are really starting to turn aren't they? Published without the usual disclaimers and apologies.

I will not click on Guardian links. They are just as bad as the Daily Mail. In fact, on issues like this, they are even worse than the Daily Mail. angry

Thank you to UCL.

So do others in the sector.

Fabulous (although I’m sure letters from individuals expressing similar perspectives go straight in the Grauniad bin).

Keep pulling!

The Guardian do this from time to time, they publish something vaguely supportive of GC views, buried deep in the "Letters" section that none of their readers will ever see.

"WPUK are not a hate group, and expelling their supporters from Labour is batshit" should be a huge leading news item.
