    You'll be relieved to know that nobody is campaigning for "men who say they feel like women" to take women's jobs.

     

    Actually they are. That is what transwomen are. They are born men, say they feel like and identify as a woman and hence expect us all to treat and accept them as women including putting them on all women short lists and giving them woman of the year awards.

    Nah.

    I don't know anyone in real life who prioritises trans rights over other people's rights.

     

    Here's the thing about human rights: it's not a zero sum game. Giving rights to one group of people does not subtract rights from anyone else.

     

    I disagree. Granting rights to group A which group B have fought long long and hard for and which are attached to that group does detract from group B.

     

    So women have fought long and hard to get access to male dominated professions. So some parties have initiated women only shortlists for choosing a candidate for a constituency. This is a right given to group B (women) which they have fought for so that we can change the perception and operation of certain professions so we can change cognitive bias and self-cloning of the profession. Women (group B) have fought long and hard for this. There will only be a certain number of opportunities linked to this. There are a finite number of spots available.

     

    Then group A (men who say they feel like a woman and hence are) now demand access to this. They demand to be put on all female short lists. This does remove rights and opportunities from group B.

     

    We need always remember formal rights (the rule which allows you to do something) and substantive rights (having the resource to do something) cannot be separated and the latter is determined by finite resources.

  3. A few points

     

    1:A GRC does not give transwomen access to women only toilets. There are exceptions to the equality act

     

    2:There is a legal requirement that employers have to provide women only toilets. Thus despite the dodgy advice of Stonewall that it is illegal to exclude transwomen from women only toilets it is nonsense.

     

    3:Using the Gillick principle in relation to puberty blockers is a false equivalence. This related to children under the age of 16 being given the pill without the knowledge/consent of the parents. This does not have long term health consequences. However, Puberty Blockers do

     

    P.S Dave Chappelle was spot on in his latest Netflix special

    Not really, no. The arguments to the contrary sound completely ludicrous: like there's a whole host of men dressing as women, so they can perve on them in the toilet. It's like when the Tories and Labour argued against Proportional Representation based on the fact that the BNP would have a seat in parliament. It's nonsensical. I'm not saying there aren't fringe cases, but you can't legislate for that. A trans woman just wants to go to the toilet in peace. It doesn't have to be made into this really fucked up seedy thing. 

     

     

    Whoa there bigot boy. Men dressing as women? What does dressing as a woman mean?

     

    The trans debate is now about some fat hairy dude dressed like a man, having hairy balls, a beard and a beer belly proclaiming that they feel like a women and hence we all have to treat them as such.

     

    There is no need to dress like a woman (whatever that means) to be trans. That is an old fashioned and trans intolerant approach to this matter.

    At the risk of being outed as an FSG shrill, the Offal have got a merch sale on this weekend and some of the clobber looks decent and reasonably priced.

    Some of that stuff is hideous unless you want to look like a street rat.

     

    The jumpers are so bad they even mad Allison look like a div rather than the cool, sexy bastid he is

    Was looking through a photo album searching for old pictures of my grandparents and I found this one from 1979.

    I was a ballboy in the Australian Hardcourt Tennis Championships.

    This is Argentinian Guillermo Vilas, world number three at the time, behind Bjorn Borg and Jimmy Connors.

    Great bloke.

    Bought me a glass of Coke a couple of times in the players lounge... while I used to try to explain the cricket on the TV to him - it was the Ashes in Australia that summer.

    The photo was taken by his coach, Romanian Ion Tiriac, who went on to coach Boris Becker.

    That fringe is clearly the product of a "mum's kitchen table haircut"
