"This blog is for people to add links to quotes from Julie Bindel about transgender issues"
Transgender and queer folk in the UK have been experiencing transphobia tenfold what we endure in the states. Our Nemesis Joe Solmonse masks his transphobia behind the good intentions of the majority of HRC members.
The UK's major lesbian and gay advocacy group, Stonewall makes no such effort. They honor openly transphobic people such as Julie Bindel.
In UNITY we will overcome.
