Oh that was good, now need to figure out how i attach the link and send it to my stupid MP

Loved it! Although I think they have got confused on Gender is a social construct. They make it sound like that is said by the TRAs but I thought it was a feminist concept.

Brilliant, the writer has such a solid understanding of the whole debate.

Can't wait for 'problematic'

Just had my grandson take a look. He laughed all the way through, thought it was great. Has now gone off to circulate it on social media.

This is where it gets interesting - putting this out to young people. Even if there are some anomalies, it has appeal and my worry has always been that this has looked like an oldie fight, even though it shouldn't have been because I know young people who don't by into woke

SheWhoMustNotBeHeard Sun 02-Aug-20 18:51:35

@highame that's really good news. Maybe it will become viral if it's shared enough. Here's hoping anyway. smile

Thanks OP that's great. Needed a chuckle tonight.

LongPauseNoReply Sun 02-Aug-20 19:55:39

That’s fantastic. I’ve shared it with everyone grin

Forgivenandsetfree Sun 02-Aug-20 20:17:45

@highame no, I'm 26 and don't buy into it.
I had a friend/acquaintance at school who is now transgender (ing?) and I mean, at school I always thought he may be gay, but it seems to me s/he's been well sucked into it all, as he seemed to find more acceptance with other TGs, what I see on his Facebook, it's just full of bitchiness and just pulling others down while trying to look good doing it..
Not sure if I'm aloud to say this blush

How can I ever know what it is like to be a bat, a dog, a cat, a horse, or even another person? Can I only ever truly understand what it is like to be me? Thomas Nagel, philosopher
