The gender heretics are finally winning the TERF wars

2020 was full of victories for common sense over trans lunacy.

[…]  The ideology of ‘gender identity’ extends far beyond social media. It has the backing of international NGOs, pharmaceutical companies and even the UN. But this year, grassroots activists all over the world came together to fight against the idea that identity trumps material reality. The Declaration on Women’s Sex-Based Rights was founded by academics and activists in the UK and it now has sister groups pushing back against transgender ideology from as far afield as the Bahamas and Sweden. Similarly, the LGB Alliance, which was founded in 2019, has this year hit the mainstream, offering a challenge to the narrative of transgender lobby groups like Stonewall and inspiring others across the world (14 national groups and counting). The LGB Alliance advocates for the right to be same-sex attracted, something that ought not to be revolutionary in 2020 but is vigorously fought against by government-funded LGBT charities.

After innumerable delays, 2020 was also the year women and equalities minister Liz Truss gave the government response to the proposed reform of the Gender Recognition Act, a process which was prompted some five years earlier by her none-too-bright predecessor Maria Miller. Braving calls for her resignation and slurs on her character from at least one MP within her own party, Truss stood firm and announced that so-called ‘gender self-identification’ was not on the cards. Instead, she committed the government to more healthcare clinics for those experiencing gender dysphoria, a reduction of the fee to change legal gender and a halt to the medicalisation of children confused about their ‘gender identity’.
