Thank you for putting this list together, it must have been grim work. This is so depressing - one nasty man after another. Why won't judges etc. see that they are evil?

Thank you for your kind words, Squirrel. Yes, I know it seems grin but I do believe things are on the up. Good News Supplement on the way!

So depressing that so many people in authority have turned against women and children .Did they all hate their mothers and do none of them have wives ,sisters ,daughters ? Why would any decent human being put the interests of predatory men before the welfare of their victims ? THAT's truly evil !!👎👎👎

Vital work though so thank you

I know it seems bleak but please don't get down-hearted! We may not win every battle but we are winning the war. (And there's a Good News Supplement on the way!) Thank you for your kind words.

These compilations are just stunning. Drip by drip, they don't seem as bad, but when you put them all together, it's just horrifying. Thank you for doing this work, JL! i hope you are planning on writing a history or chronology of this time, using these compilations. No one in the future is ever going to believe what really happened without all these receipts you kept!

Ah thank you for your kind words, Good Reason. A chronology/ round-up is a good idea!

I'm guessing Alan "Sarah Jane" Baker gets Boy George's vote; with their shared experience of celebrating gender tolerance and inclusivity. Oh and getting banged-up for kidnap and torture.

Excellent work as usual , JL. How much more horrors need to happen here and how many more women and children need to suffer before the authorities wake up. ? I fervently pray that everyone who supports this in any way will pay the price for the damage they've caused or applauded.

That Labour guy is from Maryhill!!? I'm not sure he'll be taking the locals to task there about any misgendering.

I get so angry about this I do find it difficult to deal with. I can't talk to many people about it because I don't know what they think. So poems and sayings it is.

You can always vent here, Penny! I know it seems bleak but I honestly do see the pendulum swinging back. We may not win every battle but we are winning the war. Take care.

As usual Labour still in the thrall to the TIM's - why arent the other women on the committee walking out? leaving the bloke to it? oh i know cos they are more concerned with being kind instead of furious.

Yes, I doubt I'll be voting for them anytime soon. (After 30 years of being a member!)

Because they're either sincerely pro TIMs, or they care more about keeping their job than being honest...

yes i agree - and also cowards

Another opportunity to tweet my Labour MP and Labour Leader of the Council. They "see no evil, hear no evil, talk no evil". I am going to camp outside his Constituency office tomorrow, which is a surgery day, because he has refused to even acknowledge AUTOMATIC receipt of my e-mails about the "Ban on Conversion Therapy". Time to do a face-to-face meeting. But maybe he has been doing every meeting on Zoom for the last two years. I don't know!

I've been to see my (Labour) MP a couple of times. Polite lip service is how I'd term the response. However, I do believe getting in front of them can be effective. Good for you for having a go. Best of luck!

I have a Zoom meeting on Mon 31st January. I am preparing material to send him before the meeting. And I have another 1000 copies of my leaflet about the consultation on a "Ban on Conversion Therapy" to give out at my Tube station before 4th Feb. Stamina!

I didn't make this clear. My MP agreed to meet me on a Zoom meeting on 31st Jan. Much better than no meeting!

Meanwhile Rachel Meade's crowdfunder appeal seems to be stalling. What can we do to help?

Parents in Canada - please read your child's school's Gender Identity/Inclusion guidelines/policies. Talk to their teachers/schools/school board/school board directors. Let them know how you feel about what your children are being taught and how their safety is at risk when they're in school. Schools have made changes and they're not making parents aware.

Why do they hate us so much?

Victor Madrigal-Borloz, a UN gender identity expert (!) has popped up here before. This BBC report on the World Service will be of interest.

Same story in words, but minus Victor - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-60086567

Interesting reporting, I'm happy they're happy, but they've chosen someone who had medically transitioned and was open about their status. They seem to have skipped over a few recent issues that might better balance this story...
