Dear supporters. As you know, I have spent the last few months campaigning around treatment of gender dysphoria for vulnerable children. This included a parliamentary petition which got over 10k signatures. (1/6)
A few months ago, without warning, I received an email from my educational institute - @Metanoia_Inst - expelling me with immediate effect from my Masters course that I spent 3 years working towards. I was provided no evidence and not a single opportunity to defend myself. (2/6)
That evening I discovered they had publicised the expulsion on Twitter, in an attempt to destroy my reputation.

I am taking legal action against them for their discrimination against my beliefs but also to stand up for free speech, women’s rights and vulnerable children.(3/6)
However, I cannot do this without your support. I need to raise money to fund my legal case. If free speech, safety for women and protecting children matter to you as much as they do to me, can I please ask that you donate to my crowdfund - crowdjustice.com/case/expelled-… (4/6)
The Mail on Sunday have written an article on what has happened to me, which includes details about the fact that I also lost my volunteering role at Childline (@NSPCC) after over 5 years counselling there, for seeking open and honest discussion.


The last few months have been extremely challenging for me but I will never stop fighting for what is important. Educational institutes must be held to account when they deny free speech to their students. Thank you all in advance. James (6/6)

Sentimental Thread Warning!

Yesterday, I was blocked by @OwenJones84. The crime? Challenging, respectfully, his use of inflammatory language on the topic of sex and gender. Previously, I had reached out to Owen, extending an invite to debate the issues, which went ignored. (1/5)
I realise I am not the only person to be blocked by Owen. It turns out he has a bit of a reputation for being trigger-happy in this regard. However, I was surprised with the strong feeling I was left with. Not one of anger or frustration or resentment but one of sadness. (2/5)
Sadness we live in a society where people can simply stonewall someone they disagree with. Sadness we seem incapable of listening to others. Sadness we deem others as ‘bad’ when we know nothing about them. Sadness we celebrate diversity in all except diversity of thought. (3/5)

In light of @KLBfax’s Court of Appeal case today, I thought I would post another thread (apologies!) on some of the biggest risks and dangers associated with puberty blockers and why it is crucial that children are safeguarded. (1/7)
1. Up to 90% of children with gender dysphoria settle into their biological sex over the course of puberty. By delaying or stopping puberty in its tracks, we are denying children this opportunity to become comfortable with themselves. (2/7)
2. Studies show chemical, biological and neuropsychological changes that occur in puberty actually help children to become comfortable in identifying with their biological sex. The very things that those seeking puberty blockers fear, ironically may be the thing that helps. (3/7)

I don’t tend to like threads. But, if you will kindly indulge me, this interview between @OwenJones84, @freddymcconnell and @Mermaids_Gender was so concerning and dangerous, I felt compelled to write one. (1/6)
1. Owen suggests we ignore the voices of detransitioners as they only make up 1% of those who have transitioned.

And yet this is the same man who calls for enforced conformity around use of pro-nouns, even though trans people themselves only make up 1% of UK population. (2/6)
2. Freddy states in relation to fertility: “You do not know as a child what you want to do when you do grow up”

And yet he is more than happy for young children to commence on medication - the physical, emotional and social impacts of which may be irreversible. (3/6)
