For a bit of encouraging news from the UK, Phaylen Fairchild, some radical feminists threatened to resign from the Labour Party a couple weeks ago over the issues you’re talking about. They demanded that Labour stop counting trans women as women in their polling numbers.

The party’s reaction?

Bye, Felicia.

Every major party leader spoke up in defense of trans women. The radical feminists, maybe a dozen of them, indeed resigned from the party.

And nobody cared.

Nobody listened to them.

Labour, which will probably be running the UK after the next election if you believe the polls, has declared full throated support for trans people. They seem to understand trans issues.

And they’ve invited TERFs and others to leave the party if they don’t like it.

Remember, these haters are really fringe. Nobody is listening to them.
