For saying that a trans woman who claims to have beaten a cycling record (in the women's category) is a man.

She's rattled a few cages it seems.

I stand with Posie.

Yes, I saw the post about the world record and wanted to go back and have another look. Guess I won't be able to now. If it's true it's the beginning of the end for women's sport.

Do we know if Posie is permanently banned?

Me too. What's the bloody point in separating men and women in sport if men can race against women in the women's section?

Blimey. That person is a man. The very definition of the term transwoman means they are a adult human male - a man.

Just been on Facebook. I can still see her page. Where did you hear she'd been banned?

She says she has been banned for 30 days.
She wasn't the only one pointing out that the person is male though so have they banned them all?

I don't follow her on Facebook so I'm not sure what's happened. But I do know that every time they try and shut Posie up, she moves on to a bigger platform. I would have thought the TRAs would know better by now.

Anyone else unable to access the Fair Play for Women website? What is going on? I used that just a few days ago to make my submission for the GRA consultation.

“Fair Play for Women: Dick Boldly Goes” is still available at

I reposted the instagram on Rachel McKinnon (under a share of Posie's London projections) but didn't comment so I might comment now and see if I get banned!

Rachel, channelling the fast show's competitive dad, claims they'd love to the Olympics but, y' know politics...

That's the wicked politics that still thinks people should compete in their biological category. Rachel could, of course, enter in the right category but isn't good enough.

My DH loves cycling. He says it's given him an idea...

His opinion on Rachel was more pugnacious than Posie's!

I honestly don't know how any male-born person can compete against women and brag about their success. They just look like a twat! That McKinnon person is now freaking out on Twitter because of all the flak they've been getting.
