A headline but no analysis

Astonishing rise in number of Northern Ireland people seeking expert help over gender confusion

Judge calls for common sense

  • Today’s media are reporting on Judge Hayden, who described Social workers as ‘being in thrall to transgender issues’ when dismissing concerns of GPs and school. The case centres on a boy being raised as a girl by his mother. No doubt much criticism will be levelled at him, but the fact the boy  is living happily as a boy, with his mother is answer enough to critics. First sign of backlash and his order that social services examine their practice is a positive step. Full story. On TC and newspaper outlets in the UK.

Cast doubt

The Press are relentlessly positive in their view of Trans stories. No other phenomenon especially one that involves medical experimentation gets such unquestioning reporting. It seems unnatural to the way journalism works. Consequently I have begun to write to journalists or media outlets. My intention to put the debate into the public domain. So far nothing has come of it and that makes me suspicious. It is an alternative take on a Trans narrative that has become boring. Why not cover it? Admittedly I write anonymously, professionally I have no choice. But isn’t that the nature of whistle-blowing?
