A Trans woman's reply to Caroline ffisk & The Conservative Woman

Beautifully written but what about the self harm & suicides our kids suffer Caroline?

Today I picked up on an article in The Conservative Woman written by Caroline ffrisk.

The Daily Mail – The worst kind of tabloid.

The news group who appear to hate trans folk.

The Daily Mail – “The worst kind of tabloid”. 

Not my words but the words of George Clooney no less - and of course, he is not the only person to have a gripe with the newspaper that also appears to love hating trans folk.

10th June 2020 Zarah Sultana; MP For Coventry South And Her Perfect Letter.

If I had sat up all night I could not have written a better letter

Many MP's in the UK parliament, from all sides of the political parties, have expressed their concern to Liz Truss in regards to her statement on the 22nd of April. But I am reasonably sure no MP has done it better than Zarah Sultana the Labour MP who represents Coventry South.

24th May 2020. Opinion: Boris, Don't Cis and Trans Women Deserve Better Than This?

Is three job Liz Truss really able to handle all of her workload?

Being an MP is without question a very stressful job!

On average an MP looks after the interest of around 72,200 people in England, slightly less in the remaining three countries of the union.
