You almost have to admire the chutzpah of those saying "Well OF COURSE we never said people are "born in the wrong body".

The above are just a taster of what's been put out in recent years, with a special mention for the BBC entry from 1994.
Must admit even I was surprised when I realised quite how complicit the BBC has been in spreading this nonsense.

Those companies selling tampons & towels for "menstruators" and "people who bleed" who are using those terms on twitter (& possibly other SM) - it's all performative woke pandering. Blatant hypocrisy in an attempt to avoid backlash from the gender ideologues.
We know that, and so do they.

Go to their websites.

Talking to a friend about those incredibly realistic baby/toddler dolls, I went to find one to show her what I meant. (I think they're creepy.)
Why, I thought on first sight, would anyone try to sell a doll with a pic of it half naked in a Santa outfit? Then I looked further. 1/4 ImageImageImage…

I know I'm a cynic but come on @AmazonUK @AmazonHelp - those are not "kid's toys". The rest of that seller's goods are a bit of a give-away imo.
Why does anyone want to buy a "lifelike doll" - let alone an "elf" or "avatar" baby" which has, as a selling point, the comment "she (or he) has a private parts"?
I wonder who'd want to buy those.…

"Inclusivity" A short thread.

We're told we mustn't say "women" when talking about female biology because it excludes transmen and females who identify as "non-binary".
That's not the reason.
It's because it upsets & excludes transwomen who like to think of themselves as women.
There's never any pushback about the consistent use of "men" when it comes to prostate & testicular cancer. Yet surely "men" excludes transwomen and males who identify as "non-binary"? 🤔
But using "inclusive" language for these two, male-specific, conditions, would remind transwomen (& "non-binary" males) that they are, in fact, male. And they don't want to be reminded of that .
