I am sorry I am not having it at all like I said earlier I have no doubts that Paul Roberts the CEO of LGBT Consortium would have read the #cassreport several times but this news post on the LGBT consortium website #LGBAlliance #IAmNotAnExpert
Published by them on the 11th March the day after the Cass interim report was published speaks volumes for me. In their own news post they acknowledge elements of the contents of the article report & go on to mention the responses from members of their consortium
& they print them also. There is no way in the world that he Paul Roberts as the CEO only skim read the #Cassreport he would have approved this news item and by virtue of the tweets they reproduced anyway as part of this news article

Starting to look at the governments #ConversionTherapy documents. I wonder what the @BACP, @UKCP_Updates @BPSOfficial @BPSSexualities @BritPsyCouncil @ncs_counselling @PinkTherapyUK all think about the highlighted section here? I especially wonder what the #MoU2 think.
I also want to point out that there is a brag about us being in the @ILGAEurope top 10.

The UK was first in 2015 or 2016.
In 2021 we have slipped to 10th. What does that tell you?

#lgbt #banconversiontherapy #transphobia #inequality
Furthermore, counselling is not a regulated profession, so how will they legislate for this? How can they call #ConversionTherapy "abhorrent", then state that adults can consent?

Everyone at risk of conversion therapy is vulnerable, not just children.

We are live tweeting from the preliminary hearing of the Employment Tribunal case in which #AllisonBailey is suing Stonewall and Garden Court chambers.
The judge has ruled that for this hearing only, the names should remain redacted.
It is a Rule 50 Order. These particular individuals are members of Stonewall’s Trans Advisory Group and their names may well be known elsewhere. What is relevant is the messages from the group to Garden Court.

Amid all the disorientation of 2020, it has in many ways been a good year for #LGBAlliance. We have seen steady progress, and made some fantastic leaps forward, in our campaign to protect LGB rights./1
In January we had our kick-off event at Oran Mor in Glasgow. We campaigned to support the long-standing women’s groups in Scotland to Press Pause on the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill. The Bill was subsequently tossed into the long grass./2 Image
In February Kate Harris outlined what we call “Stonewall Law” at the Make More Noise event in Manchester. She explained how the law was being misrepresented. The phrase “Stonewall Law” was gradually taken up by other campaigners./3

Here is our submission to the three-day OHCHR seminar on academic freedom we attended earlier this year. It highlights the key role of social media companies, rather than governments, in controlling online discourse, which impacts on academic freedom.…
“To a very large extent, our freedom of expression is controlled by corporate enterprises such as Google, Twitter, Facebook, Medium, and WordPress. These companies decide which information and ideas are permissible and which must be banished.”
Although the RationalWiki page on #LGBAlliance is no longer, as the submission states, the first item to appear when googling LGB Alliance, this page is still prominent and it is not possible to edit the page to correct the disinformation on it.

It is always concerning, and disappointing, when an elected representative feels that is is acceptable to make unsubstantiated claims about people he neither knows nor has spoken to. @AlynSmith describes #LGBAlliance as "shadowy" 1/4…
& adds that we "have wilfully sought to misrepresent & undermine policy & have been vicious in (our)conduct on social media, claiming victimhood & bemoaning cancel culture." Not a word of this is true. @AlynSmith will you join us on Zoom so we can tell you what we are about? 2/4
Would it be useful for you to watch our last webinar where we lay out the reasons why we formed & our plans for the future. It's easy to watch on…. Now there are 13 LGB Alliances worldwide - it's a truly global issue. #SexNotGender 3/4

Welcome to #lgballiance, the home of people who know that lesbians are women who love other women, and gay men are men who love other men. On the basis of #SexNotGender. We are here to defend the rights of LGB people. This is a personal struggle for us.
It is personal because of the constant messages we receive asking for our help. Lesbians who write in confusion, having been excluded from LGBTQ+ spaces for being “transphobic”. Gay men who write in sadness that their men-only events are being attacked as “transphobic”.
Messages from teachers, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, politicians, NHS staff, civil servants, and from all walks of life saying they don’t dare to express their opinion about gender identity for fear of losing their job for supposedly being “transphobic”.

We reject Mr Maugham’s assertions about us which are unfounded and bizarre. #LGBAlliance is entirely funded by individual donations; we are a group of LGB people. His assertions remind us of the wild conspiracy theories people used to invent decades ago about gay people./1of2
Then we were all spies and linked to a Communist global threat. Now apparently we’re linked to the far right. We’re neither. We’re a bunch of ordinary LGB people standing up for our rights./2of2
To those who are urging us to sue: We believe that in making these defamatory remarks Mr Maugham is deliberately trying to provoke us into deploying our limited financial and time resources to rebut his claims.

Entire BALANCE of story is that a young person has to resort to court action to get 'assessment' for treatment at 'point of his need'…

Everything in this clip & the entirety of the #LGBAlliance content is simple evidence of #BBC #InstitutionalTransphobia
Given, it takes very little effort to see how (poisonous anti trans community inclusion) #LGBAlliance org is viewed by the Trans Community especially but I am certain the vast majority of the #LGBTi community, the #BBC are imo clearly acting as devious agent provocateur for it.
This is the #BBC engaging in lobbying #PublicOpinion in concert with the Westminster government current appearance to remove 'agency' from young people in seeking the very best professional support for their #GenderDysphoria AT THE POINT OF THEIR NEED. Arbitrary delay is torture!

Please pay attention to the actual harm happening to lesbians in LGBT spaces, RIGHT NOW. They are being shamed, bullied & ostracized for their SAME-SEX attraction, & for refusing trans 'lady-cock.' This HOMOPHOBIA is NOT OK. #LGBAlliance #IStandWithJKR #IStandWithJKRowling. ImageImage
#IStandWithJKRowling who spoke out against this homophobia against lesbians, which comes from within the lgbT these days.
No, Kyle, lesbians aren't going to reflect on why they don't do dick. Yes, Kyle, you're being rapey. Image
More blatant lesbophobia. This is unacceptable! People are supporting the LGBT while lesbians' rights are being rolled back! #Pride ? Image

Reminder that Transgender Trend are an unregulated anti trans lobby group associated with far right USA Evangelical & European Catholic organisations. Their literature they attempt to get into schools has been criticised as encouraging conversion therapy of LGBT kids. Pass it on.
Last time I said this they added me to a 'Defamation list' I'm listed on it five times. I want to be very clear. I believe the following:

'Transgender Trend' are not a 'parent group', they're an anti trans kids hate group, with links to far right evangelical movement. see below:

Young #lesbians are part of the reason I resist the trans ideology. As a lesbian who came out in the 80s I have seen trans activists co-opt our struggles and orgs while shaming & guilt-tripping young lesbians into accepting "lady-cock" or even pressuring them into transitioning.
There are worldwide issues with #lesbians being shamed and abused by trans ppl and I won't support #lesbophobia or an abusive ideology that denies the biological reality of sexed bodies and same-sex attraction.
Lesbians have been fighting for our spaces for decades. The assault on lesbian communities has only gotten worse.

Welcome given by Goldsmith’s new Warden, Professor Frances Corner, who was previously Head of the London School for Fashion. Goldsmith’s introduced MA in Queer History in 2017 and launched a new queer history centre.
Dr Justin Bengry, Lecturer on MA course, said lecture was first event sponsored by the new centre. MA helped build networks, dissertations were varied & covered new ground, students on work placements had developed public materials for museums, galleries, dementia advice.
Dr Bengry, introducing EJ Scott, described Scott as curator (famously of Museum of Transology), fashion historian, public historian, etc, etc, etc, but above all EJ cares about people- this pervades research work.

1./ A brief personal view on the uplifting launch meeting of #LGBAlliance last week. If you listened to @OwenJones84 & @patrickharvie you'd think the new group was some reactionary outfit funded by the American Christian Right. But then who expects consistency from..
2./ Owen on gay rights? He's managed to be the organ grinder's monkey for years, banging his little drum for Corbyn through thick and thin, a leader who likes to share platforms with the homophobes of Hamas and spoke..
3./ ...approvingly of the regime in Teheran (the one that hangs gay men from cranes). And who expects consistency from woke-blokes like these that rail against uber-capitalism but are cool with the sainted Stonewall they defended last week being funded..

@SimonFanshawe Fairly shocking to find eradication of "mixed wards" By @NHSEngland @NHSImprovmeent was only rebranding exercise & that now they just lie about #male genitalia to #female patients so they have no way to protect themselves. @CMO_England @CNOEngland
@SimonFanshawe @NHSEngland @CMO_England @CNOEngland @Jochurchill4 NHS guidelines:
Grade #1 woman: transwomen with #ladydique
Grade #2 woman: biological female #unraped (of course)
Grade #3 woman: Biological female - rape survivors, it doesnt matter that they can't sleep or scared out of their wits. @Baroness_Nichol
@SimonFanshawe @NHSEngland @CMO_England @CNOEngland @Jochurchill4 @Baroness_Nichol Ideally, of course #Female #Rape survivors (or victims) dont actually show up for medical treatment they need & deserve, freeing up #NHS resources for patients who are not damaged goods & who deserve actual health care.
