Stonewall used to be such a wonderful organisation when LGB folks really did someone battling for their right to equal status. But, happily, that battle is almost won and so Stonewall needs a new cause and that cause is the battle for transgender rights. Its kudos from previous fights means that it earns a fortune from Government doing “LGBT equality audits” and departments so woke this is utterly pointless. And virtue signalling PLCs also sign up for these audits and then boast of how woke they are. So accountants Grant Thornton may have been fined £4 million (too little) yesterday for enabling the patisserie holdings fraud with its slack work but at least it moved 153 places up the Stonewall rankings last year. Hooray. Pay rises all round!
And so it is your cash which is funding a new campaign to ensure that all those marked M on NHS records to get invited for a smear test so that those who identify as women but do not actually have a cervix can get a test too without the stigma of asking for one. What utter lunacy. To quote George Orwell – as one does almost every day in these crazy times to keep oneself sane – in 1984:
Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad.
The truth which I shall cling to and I suspect most folks cling to despite what the liberal elites would have us believe, is that if you have an M on your NHS record you do not need a smear test.
