My £0.02 – I don’t believe her piece adds anything new or useful to the discussion which remains, in my opinion, primarily about Stonewall UK’s attitude to the trans community, and *not* about Ms Bindel herself, or her many, *many* words.
But given her apparent belief that it *is* about her, it almost becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Unfortunately.
Oh, and spot the dog whistles cunningly hidden in this short passage:
I believe that [the majority of the members of the transsexual community] are not interested in hearing what I have to say, but merely wish to use me as their ‘whipping girl‘, and to take all of their anger out on me. I refuse to be a scapegoat, or to be silenced by them.
Til Thursday, then, Ms B.
