Apparently Transgender Trend are trying to crowdfund £50,000, to essentially undermine support for trans kids.

I’m fed up of anti-trans lobbyists misrepresenting themselves and their intentions towards trans kids, so will address their claims in this thread 👇🏻 #EnoughIsEnough
What they call “gender ideology” is basically acknowledging that just as there are trans adults, there are also trans kids, and that people should be respectful, accepting and kind to them (as they should to everyone!)
This is misleading. It implies that trans orgs think the rise in numbers is ‘not important’. It also alludes to debunked notions of ‘social contagion’ and ‘ROGD’.

Trans orgs acknowledge the upsurge, but attribute it to increased visibility and acceptance of trans people.
This is incorrect.

People are legally allowed to access facilities aligning with their gender id. This can ONLY be overridden on a CASE BY CASE basis, ie: no blanket rule!

Also, ‘sex’ and ‘gender’ are the same in the eyes of the law!

p.s No independent assessment has been done

Transgender Trend is leading campaigns into trying to remove support for trans kids.

For evidence-based research and scientific inquiry, look no further than the internationally recognised expertise of @wpath

btw: It’s called ‘gender dysphoria’, not ‘gender confusion’!
Really??? 😳

If ‘globally recognised’ means ‘with financial support from orgs like Heritage Foundation’, then ok!

Having a singular anti-trans representative from the House of Lords etc... just goes to show how deep-seated transphobia is!

And ROGD still isn’t a thing!

“unregulated lobby groups” - I’m guessing you mean Mermaids, Stonewall etc? The registered charities requiring a high level of regulation???

Also, What is Transgender Trend if not an unregulated lobby group? 🤔
Maybe all the orgs you mention have received funding because they’re registered charities, have gone through rigorous assessment processes and are legitimate organisations?

Transgender Trend is a one-person website/ social media lobby group pushing an anti-trans ideology.
The ‘organised campaigns’ are by Transgender Trend trying to push their misleading ‘guidance’ into schools. Responding to this is not a ‘campaign’, it is clarification.

Free speech also allows for people to disagree with Transgender Trend’s anti-trans rhetoric!
Pointing out the (lack of) relevant credentials of the individual behind Transgender Trend is not “harassment” - Especially when that individual promotes themselves as an “expert” in the national media and numerous speaking events.
There is already a wealth of research and studies shared at @wpath & @EuropeanPATH which Transgender Trend could join.

International expert-led research has all concluded that affirmation is the best way to support children and young people grappling with gender issues.
The ‘ideological lobby groups’ mentioned are actually highly recognised reputable charities and organisations.

The actual ‘ideological lobby group’ here is Transgender Trend - pushing for removal of rights, protections and support for trans children and young people!
I find it deeply concerning that a lobby group pushing for removal of rights for trans kids is trying to professionalise its transphobia and even get paid for it! 😞

This what hate-organisations like Heritage Foundation and CitizenGO do already, and they’re well funded!
I also find it depressing that there’s a handful of people that are SO obsessed with removing the rights of transgender children that they’d go to the extremes of producing misleading material to push into schools! 😞

Trans kids have zero impact on them, yet still they lobby! 😕
It’s clear that the coordination and lobbying for removal of rights and support for transgender kids has become a full-time job for some.

It’s not surprising that they’re crowdfunding to give themselves a salary, as they obviously obsess about trans issues 24/7! 😳
Expert research has shown time & time again that trans kids who are affirmed and supported in their identity have better mental health and outcomes than those who aren’t!

Constant campaigning to undermine this by Transgender Trend actually attacks their “psychological integrity”
Here’s one thing I agree on...

#EnoughIsEnough - We *do* need to stand up against lobby groups.... such as Transgender Trend!!

Please call out their inaccuracies at every turn!

Also, if you want to donate to anything, I’d recommend @Mermaids_Gender ⤵️
