Last year, the trans activist Helen Belcher claimed that that my journalism for The Times on gender issues had precipitated a wave of suicides of teenagers.
Belcher said: “Since The Times started printing such pieces, starting with one by Turner in September 2017, I have heard of more trans suicides than at any point since 2012. These have mainly been of trans teenagers."
I replied in a Times column . In particular, I said that I was alarmed by Belcher – and the trans movement at large – irresponsibly weaponising suicide for political purposes, in direct contravention of the Samaritans reporting code.
Helen Belcher complained to IPSO about that column, claiming inaccuracy and discrimination. I am delighted to report that IPSO, after careful deliberation, has not upheld a single one of Belcher's allegations against me. The full ruling is here.
This was a deeply upsetting episode, a grave slur against my career and character. I am glad it is over. I am still awaiting an apology from Helen Belcher. ends
