But today many others are coming round to the view that trans ideology really does pose a problem.
And no wonder. After all, the news is punctuated with stories of violent male offenders being sent into women’s prisons because they claim they are ‘women on the inside’. Over the past five years alone, the number of those who identify as transgender in the prison population has increased by approximately 175 per cent. It seems reasonable to surmise that in earlier decades physically intact men who dress as women would have been labelled run-of-the-mill transvestites, and not a vulnerable minority in need of legal protection.
And then there are the detransitioners. These are people who were told that their mental distress could be solved by changing sex. They are now exposing this as a lie, sold to them by ideologically blinkered clinicians.
