Pretty wild that when it turns out a Tory MP has incredibly strong links to conversion therapy, rather than it being a news story she instead gets a Sunday Times column to write about the importance of ‘biological sex’.
The GC movement is prefect as (and perfectly willing to be) a mechanism for homophobic politicians to launder their homophobia as ‘defending women and children’ in a way that isn’t automatically rejected by the media.
There’s not too much of a market for open homophobia (at least for now) but it’s incredibly easy to get columns out of enforcing traditional gender roles, opposing the ban on conversation therapy, and comprehensive sex education, etc, if you make your stated target trans people.

Joanna Cherry sharing a platform with a woman who voted *against* her right to get married, because they share the common aim of rolling back progress on trans rights.
This man is on your team, is he Joanna?
Notable that Cherry is the only LGBT politician there, giving legitimacy to a mostly-straight panel that includes an MP who has consistently voted against LGBT rights, and a prominent transphobe and biphobe whose LGBT staff all quit in protest of her.

Section 28 was on the statue books for the entirety of the 1990s.
At my Primary School you were called 'gay' by your peers if you peed in the wrong urinal.
Fair play, it is very funny that this person apparently considers Nirvana as a good-vibes band for teenagers.
