from Grassroots Conservatives:

As business resumes post-Conference, we would like to make you aware that the transgender debate is not what it seems. We have recently had a brush with this disturbing ideology and would like to share with you our experience and what we have learned from it.

One of our committee members was interviewed in July on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, about the government’s proposals to make it easier to change legal gender, on which it plans to consult this autumn.

She made two points: (1) that changing one’s gender is a massive step and should not be presented as merely an administrative matter; (2) that, if there is a mismatch between body and mind, then it is appropriate to ask which needs to change. When invited to attribute motives to Justine Greening, the Education Secretary, she declined, explaining that she did not know Greening’s motives and was keen to focus on the policy not the person presenting it.

It is a sad reflection on public debate that these points were considered controversial and that part of the response was condemnation. In the public consultation this autumn, these are some of the issues to which the government will need to give careful consideration. Many people have expressed their gratitude that, since our presentation of a truly conservative viewpoint, their concerns are now being openly discussed.
