It's the ultimate way to divide people and totally artificial...
Bright Blue has published a report claiming that embracing ideology in the name of “human rights” will draw in younger voters and would be the “morally” right thing to do.
“To win the votes of more young people, Theresa May should show young people that she shares their liberal values,” wrote James Dobson, a senior researcher at Bright Blue, as the government considers recommendations in Parliament’s Women and Equalities’ transgender report.
“The Prime Minister should show her liberal side and offer a package of greater support for different transgender individuals in the UK,” he continues, adding: “Recent analysis polling by Bright Blue shows one way to do this is through better protecting transgender people in the UK.”
According to their “polling”, a majority of younger people (67 per cent of under 40s) say they would be “proud” to support a party that “strengthens equalities legislation to ban discrimination against all transgender people”.
The language is loaded, implying those who disagree with transgender ideology and agree with science are somehow bigoted.
Their proposal, presented in the Britain Breaking Barriers report, is for the Conservatives to amend the Equality Act 2010 by replacing “gender reassignment” with “gender identity” as a “protected characteristic”.
Bright Blue’s polling does not seem to support the assertion that a vast majority of younger people support changing the Equalities of 2010, as they claim.
“There is a danger that self-identification will allow a small number to transition prematurely or to abuse the system in order to gain access to women-only services, such as prisons,” the report’s author also concedes, without explaining how biological women can be protected.
Bright Blue supports “social justices”, has previously called for higher immigration, and their former associate, Rupert Myers, was recently fired as a GQ correspondent after accusations of inappropriate sexual behaviour.
The group, which masquerades as being part of Britain’s “conservative” family, receives funding from pro-open borders billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundation, and others.
Me? I'm a Martian.
But it gets even more bizarre...
UK Parliament Trans Report: Biological Men Should Be Allowed In Women’s Refuges And Female Sports
The government’s new “transgender equalities inquiry” has concluded that trans people are being failed by the state and society in many areas of life, claiming they need more money, more recognition, more changes in the law, and more special provisions.
The report recommends specific “hate crime” laws to guard transgenderism as a “protected category”; “mandatory training for police officers on transphobic hate crime”; a gender neutral “x” category on British passports; and for biological men be allowed into single-sex institutions such as women’s refuges, and to play female sports.
The Equalities Act of 2010 currently allows for the provision of single sex services, such as rape counselling of women’s centres, via discrimination along biological lines. However, the reports “recommends the act is amended”, to make it illegal to exclude biological men “who’s acquired gender has been recognised under the gender recognition act of 2004” from such services.
The authors also demand that the language of Equalities Act be updated, and be brought into line with latest politically correct lexical trends.
“The terms ‘gender reassignment’ and ‘transsexual’ in the Act are outdated and misleading; and may not cover wider members of the trans community. The protected characteristic should be amended to that of ‘gender identity'”, they state.
The report also claims that, “the NHS is failing in its legal duty under the Equality Act 2010” and should adopt a “zero tolerance” policy towards “transphobia”. It strongly and condemns waiting times for “essential” gender related cosmetic procedures as “completely unacceptable”.
“Trans people also have specific needs regarding Gender Identity Services, which provide: gender reassignment / confirmation treatment through Gender Identity Clinics (GICs); and the GIDS for children and adolescents”, the report states.
It claims the transgendered are being “inappropriately excluded” from some “gender effected” sports, and calls for new guidelines, whereby “there are likely to be few occasions where exclusions are justified to ensure fair competition or the safety of competitors”.
The report also says that a new “X” category for British passports must be introduced, which would allow trans people to identify as neither male nor female. Such a move would bring the UK into line with Australia, which adopted the “X” category four years ago.
The report is the work of raving lunatics who prefer to believe you can be 'anything'. They have taken over the asylum.
