So an anonymous “cis male trans ally”

I see they are already asking for money.... sigh

Michelleoftheresistance Thu 27-Feb-20 16:39:34

Denying existence, biology isn't real, clownfish burble...

and the sane voices continue to point out you've already said all this, (endlessly, you have said all this) and it's still untrue, hyperbolic and anti women.

They have nothing but to keep on churning out the same tired claptrap.

Currently run by a cis-male ally and not affiliated with the party

Well I'm convinced. 😂

Redshoeblueshoe Thu 27-Feb-20 16:43:24

So they're just identifying as Tories

DickKerrLadies Thu 27-Feb-20 17:13:41

To be fair, a good chunk of the country are identifying as Tories at the moment.

TheRealMcKenna Thu 27-Feb-20 17:51:34

I’m going to start a ‘Tory campaign to rejoin the EU’ twitter. I think I’ll end up with more followers.

Lordfrontpaw Thu 27-Feb-20 18:02:48

Not clicking (their click rates are used to prove to advertisers how popular they are). What’s the gist?

ErrolTheDragon Thu 27-Feb-20 18:40:36

The gist is ^ Our aim is to lead the campaign for progressive Trans rights within the Tory party. Currently run by a cis-male ally and not affiliated with the party.^

And so far has a 'fantastic response' consisting of 4 retweets, 12 likes and a handful of comments, not all positive.

The Labour one isn't affiliated with the party yet either. It too was only formed a few weeks ago, presumably by someone who thought the existing LGBT+ Labour group wasn't extreme enough.

Of course, it has gained a sort of de facto semi-official status in a way, in that most of the leadership candidates have endorsed its pledge card.

In retrospect (or did this happen?) Labour feminists should have put forward a pledge card too and seen if it got any signatures.

Lordfrontpaw Thu 27-Feb-20 18:50:01

I need to wear my screen glasses - I misread the title and thought it was a TOY campaign!

Not so much ‘let toys be toys’ but let toys be...

theflushedzebra Thu 27-Feb-20 18:52:14

Westminster doesn’t need any more “drivel” about gender identity.

Quite right, must be the only thing Dom Cummings and I agree on.

TwistedEyeOfHorus Thu 27-Feb-20 19:42:15

Can we report them as a suspicious page? As they're not actually affiliated?

Needmoresleep Thu 27-Feb-20 19:48:18

Yes, wasn’t the LGB Conservative twitter account shut down. If that was not acceptable to Twitter, because it was apparently ‘confusing’, why should this be?

GlitterToast Thu 27-Feb-20 20:06:22

The Tories aren't stupid enough to take this on.

Look up @LabWomenDec on Twitter - Labour Women’s Declaration

Way before the trans rights jokers. AFAIK, it has been steadfastly ignored by all leadership & deputy leadership candidates.

TinselAngel Thu 27-Feb-20 23:42:02

Good look with converting the Tories, whoever concocted this.

ErrolTheDragon Thu 27-Feb-20 23:45:36

Launched and..... bellyflopped?

Yes, it did happen. None of them will sign it.
