In response to Will Jones: The transgender ‘faith’ beats Christianity and common sense,

I could be wrong but it seems that transgenderism, which even my spell check refuses to recognise, is simply a passing fad and in another few years people will have forgotten all about it. The more we bang on about it the more we give it the ‘oxygen of publicity’.

It is said that Dr David Mackereth was sacked after an ‘abstract discussion’ with his manager. He had not actually had to call a 6ft bearded man ‘she’. How often, do you think, a Disability Claims Assessor would come across a transgender person?

My business is regulated under the Financial Conduct Authority. What do you think would happen if I spoke to the FCA and had the same conversation that the doctor had with his manager? I can tell you: the full force of the quango would come down on me, I would certainly lose my FCA Licence, would be unable to trade and would, no doubt, be prosecuted. But how often am I likely to come across a transgender person? Not very is the answer. It seems to me that the only people who take any notice of transgenderism and the other ‘isms’ and ‘phobias’ are those employed in some form by the state, nobody else bothers. We in the private sector just carry on as normal.

Remember in the old USSR how religion was harassed and property confiscated? When atheism was taught and propagated in schools? Didn’t do Christianity much harm when now 71 per cent of Russians profess to be Christians.

Let these ‘children’ play their games while we grown-ups keep the economy turning.

I think this issue might end up being resolved by the sports rather than the courts. Real women are going to get pretty cheesed off if they are constantly denied success by men pretending to be women. I don’t think ambitious female athletes will tolerate this for very long.
