UK Politics: Mone, Mone, Mone. It's not funny. It's a rich toff's world.

Arguing so frequently and so vehemently against something that doesn't impact on your life one fucking bit. What's up with that?

Seems to me it only matters to bigots.

True. Trans people can’t even just die and have their gender identity reflected in their death certificates without reactionaries screeching on it being the downfall western civilization and Terfs crying it’s an attack on women(to cover for their reactionary tendencies).

More than anything, I feel for our trans friends that they have to read these facile arguments put forward every 2-3 months in this thread.

Also true—

Now for some good news on transphobes losing.

The Westminster Tories will no doubt appeal. 

I do think conservatives have mistaken transphobia  as being more  appealing to anyone who isn’t a reactionary  than it actually is.

To turn this thread into a US politics a bit I’ll bring up Deborah Soh arguing democrats and republicans come together to beat on trans people.

They're actually just threatening to refuse Royal assent to the bill (or at least not ruling it out).

This may sound like a wild notion but it contains everything the Tory right get high on. Royal prerogatives, putting the Scots back in their box, and transphobia? This is catnip to them. Even if it's electoral suicide, they will struggle to resist the idea like an addict struggles with their hit of choice.

bigotry is a hell of a drug.

It should be asked for anyone fear mongering about how do trans people changing their death certificates endanger women and children.

Because then they might be allowed into a women only graveyard!   Pervy Male ghosts might just get the gender cert just so they can attack female ghosts.   Afterlife should be a safe space for real women.

 

 

I think the above is the bigots argument.

Also what about in the event of a zombie apocalypse? If biological male zombies rise up from the women’s only grave yard they’ll have a distinct advantage in getting to whichever humans are at graveyard first.

Keep. Zombie Women.Hunting. Fair.
