Transgender Trend Crowdfunder suspended
OldCrone · 01/06/2018 13:27
The TRAs have been busy complaining about the crowdfunder, and have managed to get it suspended
"We have been told by @crowdfunderuk that our our project has been suspended pending further investigation, due to an 'unprecedented number of complaints.' All complaints we have seen on Twitter are libelous. Please contact [email protected] to support us."

Does this mean they don't get the money yet either????
AND - is there any way TransgenderTrend could just set up a Paypal account and those of us who wish to support could do so via them?

I was going to donate later today. Is there a way of donating directly?
My donation has just doubled because I'm pretty passed off.

thread with some suspension background:

'Trans campaigners slam ‘deeply transphobic’ school resources Crowdfunder'
"Trans rights campaigners have rebuked a “deeply transphobic” Crowdfunder page set up by a group of parents concerned by “the current trend to diagnose ‘gender non-conforming’ children as transgender.”
The activists are calling on the Department of Education to condemn the fundraising page, which is raising money towards providing schools with hard copies of so-called “Transgender Trend” resource packs and guidance on the subject." (continues)

You can donate directly via their homepage.
I'm probably being unrealistic, but I hope that crowdfunder UK actually read the transgender Trend stuff, and decide to reinstate the crowdfunder
AssignedPuuurfectAtBirth · 01/06/2018 14:28
I think Transgender Trend need to start taking some legal action re this stuff. Will definately contibute to that

There’s a donate button on that page ^
Don’t let the bastards grind them down.
spontaneousgiventime · 01/06/2018 15:09
AH! Invalid Thank you! Just what I came here to ask about.
BubbleBlowingBaby · 01/06/2018 15:12
I've donated directly. Used PayPal. Don't crowdfunding pages take a cut anyway??
Magpiesarehuge · 01/06/2018 15:15
What ever happened to the crowd fund Jennifer James set up?
ReluctantCamper · 01/06/2018 15:31
for fucks sake. I can't afford to donate twice but if I get refunded I shall donate via the website, thanks for the link.
I understand that you have suspended this crowed funder which I have contributed to, due to an unprecedented number of complaints.
Please note that the aim of this crowdfunder is simply to fund producing printed copies of information for schools to help them support gender non conforming children and trans children alongside all other pupils. It has been produced in consultation with teachers, child protection and welfare professionals and lawyers.
It would be very sad if you allowed the extreme activism of a small minority to stand in the way of fund raising for this excellent cause.

I have decided donated directly. I hadn't got round to doing it on the crowdfunder but this galvanised me.
Nolite te bastardes carborundum...
TheCountessofFitzdotterel · 01/06/2018 15:49
Oops, don't know where 'decided' came from. I have actually donated.
womanformallyknownaswoman · 01/06/2018 15:54
Yep Cluster B tactics again - destroying someone's reputation and livelihood by weaponising the complaints systems of social media platforms to "murder by proxy" - like the family court all over again. These are the guys who need limits setting on them - they are so disordered - no conscience nor empathy.
WorkingItOutAsIGo · 01/06/2018 16:19
CANT BEAR BULLIES...have made a direct donation, and complained.
HerFemaleness · 01/06/2018 16:22
I've donated directly, and I've doubled what I originally intended to give. In your face trans activists.
Lifesavingorange · 01/06/2018 16:27
What these vile men and their pathetic female allies do not understand is IT DOES NOT MATTER how hard they try to stop us. They can get us banned, censored, suspend our fundraisers, threaten us, it will never, ever stop us.
And they’re also too thick to realise that their tactics create new allies for us, as people see their bullying tactics and realise the truth. These aren’t poor, oppressed, marginalised women. They are nasty, bullying misogynists.

Recent Guardian Article:
"Schools pulled into row over helping transgender children
As more teens come out as trans, experts clash over how schools should help"
"Profound disagreement has arisen about what schools should do. Should they, in the words of a widely used toolkit from the Allsorts Youth Project in Brighton, “make visible and celebrate trans people”? Or take the “watchful waiting” approach advocated by the Transgender Trend pack, which warns schools to be “aware of the risk of ‘social contagion’ from celebrity trans internet vloggers who glamorise medical transition”?
Stephanie Davies-Arai, a parenting adviser, launched the Transgender Trend resource pack in February half-term, thinking it would barely get noticed. Instead, she says: “It just blew up”. The LGBT lobby group Stonewall accused Transgender Trend, the organisation Davies-Arai set up two-and-a-half years ago, of spreading “damaging myths, panic and confusion”, and advised local authorities not to use the pack. On Twitter, people piled in, with one describing the pack (which had been checked by lawyers) as a “modern edition of Mein Kampf”.
I think the comments are worth reading for a range of opinions

Glad this has been suspended, it's just full of hate. It's not supporting trans youth at all. It's against them. With a few things being mentioned like it blaming internet use and “social contagion” for “glamorising medical transition” and causing “rapid-onset gender dysphoria” in children.
