Liz Truss has really been kicking against the pricks at Stonewall. I'm a socialist but, what can I say, this woman will go down in history as one of our most prominent defenders. However, this is not to diminish anybody else's efforts. I was indifferent to the fight until about a year ago and now thanks to many lesser-known writers as well as the Glinner and the LGB Alliance, I'm glad to find myself on this side of the fence. Great to see Suzanne Moore at the Telegraph too.

I've loathed the Tories for a very, very long time, but I too see a woman who actually CARES about other women and about children too. She would make a great leader. I'll never vote Labour/LibDem/Green ever again, for fear of them removing all the good she's done and sending women and girls right into even deeper hell, with their weird and woke outlooks....and I NEVER thought I'd say that. Makes me want to weep at times, how this has happened, because sadly, I can see the right wing Parties, globally, staying in power as they seem to be the only ones standing up for women and girls, for all children, in regard to puberty blockers....Oh, the huge DAMAGE caused by Trans Ideology, by Stonewall and by all those with Trans Agendas...it is VAST!

Yes, those bastards have forced women to vote on this single issue.

What amazing news from the UK! Hopefully this will ripple accross the globe.

please kick that water hard we need it in the US for sure. It's needed everywhere honestly. I reported a facebook autism group for women and girls yesterday told them and was blocked before I could even leave the group. Someone made a post about 'is this a trans and non-binary friendly group' and a young ftm transitioner went off and told them that though she identifies as male she doesn't think it's the right place for biological males and I totally agree, her premise was since I'm biologically female and autistic I belong here. The more I thought about what she was saying the madder I got and I finally reported the group and told the admin that she's right, they have no business bringing males into a group advertised 'for women and girls' because autistics are very naive and not able to discern predators and other unscrupulous people from the rest of the population, I've had trouble with this all my life, we can't see the forest for the trees. I commend her for speaking out like that and the only reason she was allowed to is because she identifies as trans, I was blocked before I could even leave the group.

The Crown Prosecution Service potentially opting out would be a massive win for sanity and common-sense. We would see the end of male rapists and paedophiles referred to as she in court documents. This would hopefully have a trickle-down effect and the media would do likewise.

Not sure that would happen, without the GRA being repealed. If they have GRC's the law legally recognises them as either of male/female *gender*, (not *sex*, but *gender*). I think, but could be very wrong, that a GRC would mean they could still be referred to as the opposite sex, with those pronouns still being used. Perhaps someone can clarity this? All GRAs are, surely, built upon total lies in the first place, so how on earth they are legal, I've no idea. Also, 'gender' is a feeling, nothing more, so a GRC states that someone feels as if they are the opposite gender to the sex they truly are. Why are we all going along with this nuttiness? How on EARTH was it EVER written into law? HOW do we get the GRA repealed, not just ours here in UK, but all over the world, for GRAs go against truth, against sanity, against women and girls, in particular, to whom no thought whatsoever has been given in the first place.

Can they change their sex before the age of 18?

Wonderful, heartening article,JL. It does look as though Truss is our most powerful ally. Labour women have peaked in their thousands and until Labour acknowledge why their female voters have abandoned them, the Tories are going nowhere. I can’t wait to see which organisation jettisons Stonewall next.

Thanks, Ms Growler! Never thought I'd see the day I'd be cheering on a Tory minister. Yet here we are! If Starmer just showed a bit of backbone over this issue, he'd clean up at the next election! And, yes, the Stonewall desertion guessing game is great fun, isn't it?!

The timing is appropriate, more sunlight on this movement just as we are entering the summer months. 😊🌞

WOW! This is all terrific news!

Truss has long been touted as *the* next-gen Tory. A claim which I personally resisted for a long time.

But after the international trade deals she's busily securing and the fact she's the lone voice of sanity pushing back against the all-pervasive gender scourge, I may have to reevaluate my previous stance 😜

Wow this is amazing news. Whoever this Liz Truss is has ovaries of steel and I sincerely hope she has really good security. If the transvestite predators who have subsumed the LGBT rights movement realize they have lost all legitimacy they may actually lose their cotton picking minds. Even more than they already have, I mean.

Hallelujah! Some good news for a change :-) We need to be on the lookout for the counter-attack, though - Stonewall and the anti-women brigade won't go down quietly.

All thistime I've been baffled by the failure of Viz to revive twans wights activist Student Grant. Then Sex Matters circulated the full list of Stonewall captives and... Dennis Publishing.

I thought Viz had just gone a bit shit like all 1980s heyday magazines. Now you tell me Stonewall has got its grasping tentacles over it ... I'm not sure if that mitigates it or exacerbates it 🤔

I shan't be returning to its readership either way; there's better free laughs available on Twitter, intentionally or otherwise 😁

I live in hope of them turning on Stonewall, Mrs Brady going full terf and 8 Ace identifying as a non-binary Ace.
