THE storm that has been brewing about ‘trans rights’ may be reaching its peak. At the last election, the Liberal Democrats decided to go ‘peak trans’, declaring that trans women are women, along with everything that implied, caution dismissed; they crashed and burned. Some of us hoped that would be a warning to other political parties, and that the debate about trans rights and how they interplay with other established rights, particularly those of women, might become more open, respectful, tolerant and reasonable.

No such luck. This week the Labour Campaign for Trans Rights issued a revolutionary statementcontaining a series of pledges about the rights of trans people. It expressed its hope that this statement would be adopted by ‘members and MPs alike’.

[…]   Most people would regard the pledges to be so extreme as to be impossible for any Labour MP to sign up to. They include:

· Accept that trans women are women, trans men are men, and non-binary people are non-binary;

· Accept that there is no material conflict between trans rights and women’s rights.
