OK. Here goes. Deep breath..... I lost my job @CGDev for tweeting, writing & discussing gender critical ideas & my concerns about govt proposals to allow people to change their legal sex by 'self-identification'. Here is the @mragilligan story in @thetimes thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/t…
Here is the long story of what happened: How i changed my mind about this issue, why i think it matters, why I started tweeting about it and how I ended up losing out working on two-year project I had fundraised for, with colleagues i still miss. medium.com/@MForstater/i-…
Here is a break for the Dixie Chicks (in case anyone wants to know how I am feeling)
I have begun employment tribunal proceedings for discrimination. This will be a test case to establish that “gender-critical” views are protected beliefs under the Equality Act 2010, as a philosophical belief.
If we can establish this point in law it would help others who are afraid to speak up at work, people being kicked out of political parties and membership organisations and from social media for expressing gender critical beliefs. objectnow.org/objects-doxxin… janeclarejones.com/2018/09/26/twi…
I've never done this before but I am asking for your support. If you'd like to help me make this legal challenge please donate and share the @CrowdJustice campaign crowdjustice.com/case/fired-may… (💰 from 8am UK time Sunday) - your help will make a difference.
You may disagree with all or part of my analysis of the issues, or you may not have decided what you think (its complicated!) Medium.com/@MForstater/in…
...but the point is people should be able to think and talk and disagree about policy issues openly. Institutions whose job it is to hold open that space are instead shutting it down. And that is always scary.
Thanks to everyone who has offered support so far (emotional, financial, knowledge, advice, reputation- it all counts) @fairplaywomen @IndexCensorship @Martina @Glinner @anyabike (and many more, including too many banished from @twitter) ... and to everyone who is going to.. 💐💐
Update: We broke the initial target in less than a day! Thank you all. We will need more to get a full hearing medium.com/@MForstater/we…
