So when are you going to suspend the transphobes in the Labour party, Starmer? Actions speak louder than words.
“Tragically”… it strikes me that using language like that makes it seem like no one is responsible for the state of affairs of violence against transfolk. As you say, actions speak volumes and labour seems to be failing on taking action to protect the trans community.
Unfortunately, labour has failed to even live up to the roots of its name in the last 30 years, the fact that it would fail one of the many groups of people it should be supporting is no real surprise
Sometimes it feels so good to see someone get over the lowest bar.
To be fair - he was onboard on this issue before others in the Obama administration and led on it back then. Personal relationships with a trans person always help - and he had that.
The BBC are at it again
It’s Holocaust Memorial Day in two months time. Will the BBC be inviting David Irving* onto Newsnight, or is it only trans people who have to face abuse in the name of “balance”?
* I hope the BBC will never do this, but trans people in the UK are facing that same kind of DARVO so I will carry on using that comparison. There’s plenty of Holocaust denial from those who don’t believe that trans people were targeted by the nazis too.
