The American Civil Liberties Union has a proud one hundred year history. It has been a heroic organisation that those of us who care about liberties can only but admire without reservation. Until today that is and a Twitter outburst which marks its darkest hour.

The reason that university lecturers need long holidays is that they can publish research. The more research they publish, the more funding their university gets so the more they get promoted. Being a good and dedicated teacher really is not part of this process. Of course, all research must be peer group approved to get published and in the woke culture at Britain’s Marxist madrassas I guess you know what that leads to. So let’s go to Sheffield Hallam University where taxpayer cash has been wisely invested in a gender driven study of public toilets.

This week, the journalist Suzanne Moore was forced out of her highly paid job at the Guardian. Her crime was to question certain of the more radical demands of the trans agenda in relation to women‘s rights. Moore was not fired. No, this is 1984 so instead vast numbers of her colleagues wrote to management saying her views upset them. Knowing she was in peril of being written out of the script, Moore walked.

Rabble Books & Games, a bookstore in Perth Australia, has a death wish. It has said that it will not stock any new books by JK Rowling including those written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. Folks desperate for a Harry Potter novel can get it as they will be stored under the counter like smuggled cigarettes from Vietnam in your local newsagent. Why would a bookstore take off its shelves one of the world’s best selling authors? This is an act of commercial suicide.

In the sport of Rugby the World governing body did something that was, on the surface of it, quite brave: it commissioned a scientific study on transgender women playing the sport. To the surprise of nobody with half a brain cell, the report showed that people born as men but who had transitioned would, even if they took hormone reducing drugs, be faster and stronger than what World Rugby terms cis-women. Or, what you and I just term women. And worse. If real women played against trans athletes, the study showed that their risk of serious injury increased by 30%. As such World Rugby is not going to allow trans women to play against women born as women and is using safety as its excuse. That offers a get out of jail card to any contact sport to do the same.

Nadia Whittome MP is an uber woke member of the Alt Left, who today has waded into bat for the rights of the trans community. She offers up a terrifying vision of the Orwellian state she wishes to create.

The Day is an online newspaper which targets school kids, founded and edited by Fleet Street great and good member Richard Addis. It comes with the full endorsement of the Department of Education. But why is this, supposedly Tory, Government urging kids to read such hate filled filth.

No one is still quite clear what Olivia Butterworth does to justify her six-figure salary as Head of Public Participation for NHS England. We know that she tweets out lies about the Tories to bash them and thinks that celebrating Virtual Pride is more important than treating cancers. But what does she do? Well, it seems she attacks women who have suffered domestic violence. If this was a male employee of the NHS, an ordinary Joe administrator, he’d be getting a P45 today, but will the NHS show a true commitment to equality and fire Ms Butterworth?

WARNING: Our apologies, this Bearcast has distorted sound from after ten minutes, when Tom recorded it. It is still audible. We’ll try to fix it for tomorrow’s Bearcast. I start with a short bit on the wild use of language and yes the trans “genocide” is my starting point. I look at IQE (IQE), Thomas Cook (TCG) and classic red flags – Eight Peaks Group (8PG), Yu (YU.), Bushveld (BMN) and Tesla (TSLA). If you have yet to donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks (another announcement tomorrow), please do so HERE.

Saturday was world #Transvisibilityday. You need a day like that becuase way under 0.5% of the world's population are never on TV, never in the newspapers, never being celebrated at the Oscars for starring in a crap foreign language film, never on BBC Question Time as the high priests of victimhood. They are never in the headlines demanding that though they have penises folks who identify as women and re part way there should be allowed to share a changing room with our teenage daughters. No, never.

Across the West the story is the same. Offended snowflakes object - or in some cases far worse - and craven academics cancel events or no platform speakers. This is a matter I am now all too familiar with after giving this most excellent talk at Bath Spa University. It is surely only a matter of time before some liberal arts faculty somewhere organises a book burning. Today's demonstration of the Orwellian nature of the liberal arts campus of today comes from McMaster University in Hamilton Canada.

From the TSER, Transgender student, website I featured earlier I feel it is worth explaining why the * can be "inaccessible, binarist, and transmisogynist" What follows is a page of such complete and utter bollocks I defy anyone to understand a word of it. The joke here is that these earnest young students write this in all seriousness...this is really not a parody. In my day young folks wanted to take drugs, have sex and get hammered, surely writing the nonsense below cannot be more fun than that?

One of the few joys of the transgender madness, promoted by the elitists of the liberal media, and now raging across the West is seeing uber PC lefties such as Germaine Greer and Peter Tatchell fall foul of this new lobby, no platformed and accused of bigotry becuase they just cannot keep up. Want to avoid such a fate? Thankfully I can help.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And beauty is not skin deep - or should not be. I fancy the Mrs not only because she is physically attractive but for a range of reasons including her brains, sense of humour and her past experiences which I can understand. But now apparently that is not acceptable. If a woman's past experiences include being a man and going through surgery and hormone treatment that may be something that one may not find so attractive. In fact it is something that would deter me from trying it on.

11 month old Joshua and i greatly enjoy doing a Sainsbury's shop together. we discuss what we need to get from the shopping list in my head. Or rather I talk as i wheel him around in the trolley and he sits there gurgling and smiling sweetly at anyone whose eye he can catch. At the checkout, as I tried to fish out my credit card, the lady caught his eye, he smiled and giggled and she said " what a gorgeous little girl".

It was 50 years since the legalisation of homosexuality and 1 day since President Donald Trump said he was banning Transgender folks from the US army. And thus BBC breakfast focused in hard on issues that affect directly just over 2% and between 0.3% and 0.6% of the population directly. What else could the liberal media focus on? It was a veritable LGBT-fest and a reminder why BBC Breakfast really is just such dismal viewing.
