M&S apologises to non-binary shopper who was born female after they were stopped from using the men's changing room

How did the Non Binary person know that the "female attendant" who approached her identifies herself as a female? 

 

Slight contradiction there!

If there are no transgender changing rooms, why go to the men's changing room if you were born female. look more female than male and identify as "they"? Also, why did the shop allow another female looking woman to change there, and not the other female looking non-woman?

So should Harvey Weinstein be in here as well like? 

If one of his victims was understandably a bit wary of blokes she should be able to get changed in a place without blokes, or attend a rape counselling centre where they are banned.  
 

That well known bigot Tanni Grey Thompson made a good speech this week about maintaining woman only spaces.

After shopping in the menswear section for men's clothes.

 

To be honest she sounds like she's not all there mentally or maybe emotionally plus I reckon she wanted some compo off Marks and Sparks...

'I still feel scared to shop at Marks and Spencer in case it happens again elsewhere or if I have to deal with that same person again."

Sales assistant approaches this person, says they can’t go in men’s changing room. Attention seeker says she identifies as Non Binary.
 

Sales assistant apologises and that seems to be it from what the article says.

 

Company then follows up and apologises and this person still wants more more?

 

False outrage, attention seeking, or not all there.

 

I’d say one of those three. 
 

Absolute non story.

Fucking hell

I know, right? The failure to include the actual results; the accompanying pictures being from the 2017 world championships, where Hubbard came 2nd; and the absolutely wild conclusion that either a) she'll now be banned from the Olympics, even though she was competing under their own guidelines at the time, or b) Tokyo are about to call the whole thing off. The entire fucking thing, cancelled, because of a weight lifting competition that happened 3 years ago and followed IOC rules.

 

Quite the tweet from 'Dr James Kent, Consultant Detective', and another exciting episode in Anonymous People On Twitter And When They Should Be Taken Seriously (a quick scroll through that fella's timeline tells me he definitely should; big on all the gammon staples such as Brexit, anti-feminism, Toby Young's new FSU grift, and cry arsing about Greta Thurnberg). Fuck me.

Although the RFU held a meeting today about this issue.  Experts and those wanting to and advocating for trans women’s participation in women’s rugby.  Hopefully common sense will prevail . 
 

Edit: World rugby.  Here’s the process

The Oxford Dictionary are one of Britain’s most outspoken and visible trans-antagonists?

The OED didn't use that slogan or produce the flag. Some transphobic gobshites did.

Some people with different opinions did.  Not agreeing that trans women are women doesn’t make a person transphobic (stupid fucking word too).

    • That article just sounds like 'shit we need to write sonething'. Teams will know this isn't a proper training camp and just a necessity to get the season complete, the TV companies off their back and get the players paid again.    Brighton 'intense schedule' fuck off its 9 games over 4 to 6 weeks. You could wrap it up in 3/4 weeks if you had to and it would be no more intense than our schedule over Dec-Jan the last few years. We played 12 games in 37 days this year, yet Brighton are moaning at playing 9 in between 28 and 42 days     Think Brighton might be more on the let's void the season being 2pts outside the relegation zone
    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
