There is no such thing as a trans child
Mermaids has blood on its hands
Emma Watson - a passionate supporter of Mermaids
I wrote this, for Unherd, about the latest Mermaids scandal: https://unherd.com/2022/10/mermaids-is-endangering-children/
I am angry beyond belief that so many celebrities, corporations, statutory agencies and individuals could give support to this child abuse project. There are some brilliant activists on Twitter unearthing each and every one of them. I think we should ask them all, “Do you still support this organisation, bearing in mind what has been revealed?” The thing is, plenty of us have been warning about this for a long, long time. I first contacted Mermaids back in 2003, yes, 19 years ago, when I wrote my first piece on the madness of the transsexuality diagnoses. I was given the cold shoulder. Since then it’s become a cause célèbre, seen as progressive, and lauded by the likes of Witchfinder General, Owen Jones. Those of us that have spoken out against Mermaids’s hideous ideology and practice have been labelled bigots, transphobes, and even Nazis. Have a think about what you were doing during the war, so you can tell your grandchildren, or look yourself in the mirror and feel some pride. If you have turned a blind eye to this, open them, if you have supported Mermaids, now that you have the evidence you need, change your mind, and do it publicly. This is about the lives, health and well-being of children, and it’s also about the way that many, many feminists, lesbians, and some men have been vilified and had their lives all but ruined for trying to blow the whistle and raise the red flag. Have a think. Sometimes it’s easier than we imagine to do the right thing.
