Why I had to leave The Guardian

Nov 26, 2020 by

by Suzanne Moore, UnHerd: It is March 2020. For several months now I have been trying to write something — anything — about the so-called “trans debate” in my Guardian column. But if I ever slip a line in about female experience belonging to people with female bodies, and the significance of this, it is always subbed out. It is disappeared. Somehow, this very idea is being blocked, not explicitly, but it certainly isn’t being published. My editors say things like: “It didn’t really add to the...

HBO documentary ‘Transhood’ shows mom forcing her son to declare himself a girl at religious ceremony

Nov 25, 2020 by

by Jonathon Van Maren, LifeSite: As Matt Walsh pointed out, the ‘poor child appears to have no interest in being paraded around like his mother’s show pony’. Back in 2018, I covered the emergence of bizarre new pastoral guidance released by the Anglican House of Bishops in the United Kingdom laying out a new ecclesiastical service called the “Affirmation of Baptismal Faith.” In that service, clergy members lay hands on transgender people, address them by their “new name,” and often...

Nov 24, 2020 by

This is how transgender activists win: A relentless willingness to fight

Nov 19, 2020 by

by Jonathon Van Maren, LifeSite: A woman claiming to be a man will be heading to the European Court of Human Rights because the U.K. government registered her as the mother of her child. In September of last year, I covered the story of a transgender person — a biological female identifying as male and referring to herself as Freddy McConnell — fighting to force the government to allow her to register as the father of her child rather than the mother. McConnell used a sperm donor to get...

MPs consult on sex-changes on demand – please respond

Nov 18, 2020 by

from The Christian Institute: The Government spent two years analysing the thousands of responses to its consultation on making it easier to change legal sex.

It is asking very similar questions about: Removing any need for a medical diagnosis or two years living as the opposite sex, in a move towards ‘self-declaration’; Lowering the age for changing legal sex...
