You knew what you were doing, @TheEconomist. You were using Trans lives as click bait. As far as I’m concerned, your publication is now lower than trash. Shame on you. https://twitter.com/theeconomist/status/1108153258231648257 …

Well said!

I can’t say enough times if we don’t start fighting harder for our #LGBTQ rights, we will eventually lose them.

. @TheEconomist asked if #transgender people should be sterilised. That’s right: sterilised. Is it any wonder half of all #trans youth attempt suicide when prominent media outlets write #transphobic click-bait crap to advance the view that #eugenics be used against #trans people! https://twitter.com/lesbianleftie/status/1108148735882809344 …

Dear @TheEconomist. This is the most hate-filled, cruel, unscientific, head-exploding idiocy I have ever read. Me? I’m trans, out for 20 years. My wife and I have raised two blessed brilliant children. They bring light into this world. Unlike you. PS How are YOUR kids doing?

How is this even a question? No @TheEconomist. I know I’m transgender but I still deserve bodily autonomy. Wtf.

I’ve thought long and hard before saying this, but @theresa_may knows that MPs across the House are subjected to death threats - some very credible. Her speech was incendiary and irresponsible. If any harm comes to any of us, she will have to accept her share of responsibility.

.@TheEconomist says it's sorry but doesn't employ a single trans person, has spent years framing trans rights as a danger to women and promoting the lie that less than 1% of the population are causing society all these awful problems when all evidence suggests the reverse is true

Quoted @stellduffy

Dear younger LGBTQ+ friends, we overcame the lie that was Section 28, we will NOT go back, we will NOT be hidden. Queer people are from families and in families, our presence in education is not 'sexualising', it is reality. Don't be disheartened, be angry, be joyous, be HERE.

Well said! Allowing the coercing back towards a #Section28 'education' is absolutely chilling. To deny the awareness education to children, especially #LGBT children, to support their mental and social wellbeing is terrifying. It will cost lives and must be stoped!

What on earth is going on....How is it even possible that this be asked? Trans rights are human rights.

Quoted @TheEconomist

We deleted an earlier tweet which mischaracterised our article on transgender rights in Japan. Here is that article, which remains unchanged https://econ.st/2ThS5xJ 

The first line of this (which was previously the headline) still reads ‘SHOULD TRANSGENDER people be sterilised before they are recognised?’. I am shocked that @TheEconomist a respected newsbrand, and host of #prideandprejudice #LGBT conference sees fit to pose such a question.

Quoted @AnthonyWatson

I stand shoulder to shoulder with the trans community. No community should be expected to withstand the personal and unyielding public scrutiny and demonisation of their existence. We must all call out transphobia where we find it. #GwithTheT

Quite honestly the #GwithTheT letter of solidarity has been a beacon of hope in what often feels like a sea of despair. It’s hard to put into words what this show of solidarity means, but please know that it has made a profound difference to me and many others. Heroes ✊🏳️‍🌈

The Price of #BREXIT delay could be referendum or election, says @MichelBarnier. Could be? It bloody well should be! We need a #PeoplesVote now! @peoplesvote_uk @lgbt4pv

Quoted @DrRanj

I’m really sad that the lives of LGBT+ people seem to be being trivialised at the moment. Schools banning lessons on inclusion, people making ill-informed comments online & on screen, so-called ‘debates’ over rights... Remember: EVERYONE has a right to exist, love & be loved.

Allowing the coercing back towards a #Section28 'education' is absolutely chilling. To deny the awareness education to children, especially #LGBT children, to support their mental and social wellbeing is terrifying. It will cost lives and must be stoped.

Somebody caught this screenshot before it got deleted by The Economist, but make no mistake about it, their finance editor Helen Joyce is an especially vicious TERF.

This is the latest meme that was sent to me by Graham Linehan. He sent it as a reply to a tweet of support I sent to other people, not him. This isn’t feminism to me. This feels weird and a bit creepy.

Replying to @AnthonyWatson @stonewalluk @glaad

The arrogance and condescension is staggering. Still going with the idea that any LGBTQ+ person supporting trans rights and / or inclusivity is somehow less well informed than him and is just being a bit silly and stupid. Cheers for your input cisgender, heterosexual man 🙄👍🏼
