This article was first published in Le Figaro and it would appear French Lesbians are not happy.
Sorry the article is in French and I don't know if it can be translated online. If anyone is interested I could translate it .?

Fantastic opening line in a major national newspaper - and you don't need to read French to understand it!

L’activisme « trans » est très virulent

Oh scratch that. I got over-excited. Those weren't the words of the newspaper article.

My phone translates it. Good article

Great article! I would pretend i can read French fluently, but alas, it was google translate.

If I'm following the preamble correctly - it was a letter to Le Figaro by a French lesbian collective (rather than an article or op-ed). Have I got that right, OP?

Great statement, very thorough.

The French, they know all about gender, and they know it's nothing to do with le sexe.

Not quite sure what would be an equivalent in our press. Forum for debate maybe? However, much more than just the letters section.

Ah thanks OP, - this is the sort of cultural context my French isn't good enough to fill in.
