Tell election candidates to resist Stonewall demands

As the next UK general election is now set for 12 December this year, political parties and other organisations such as charities and campaign groups are making their wishes known about public policy, in the hope that supporters and members of the public can ask candidates where they stand and whether they might support their proposals. LGBT charity and campaign organisation Stonewall has published an 18-page manifesto for the upcoming general election – one that repays close reading.

Stonewall’s demands are extreme

Stonewall’s demands clash with fundamental freedoms and important aspects of human dignity and welfare. This is precisely why some prominent members and supporters recently split off to found a new movement, the LGB Alliance.

Here are some of the most important demands from Stonewall’s manifesto that political candidates should be asked to resist.

Demand for gender identity law

“Improve the Gender Recognition Act 2004 to streamline and de-medicalise the process for legal gender recognition. Reform must remove the requirement for intrusive medical tests, introduce a simple administrative process based on the principle of self-determination, and provide recognition for under 18-yearolds and non-binary people. This will bring us in line with international best practice.”

Stonewall demands that the government amends the Gender Recognition Act to allow people to change their gender in a merely legal sense. This compounds the already existing problem that everybody else is being forced to lie about whether a person is male or female. This is a fundamental assault on the freedom of conscience.
