This matters to me because on a selfish level I care about the fact that as a gay man supposed “gay charities” are now violently homophobic and claim that terms like homosexual are “transphobic” and every gay charity and organisation in the UK thinks homosexual people should accept opposite sex people as partners. Also I care about women’s rights and to be frank every woman I know in real life – my mother sisters aunts my female friends etc – do not want to share female only places with male bodied people
I’ve only really spoken out on social media. With my friends and family in real life they know how I feel but they feel similar. I have spoken in work with some colleagues I am close to and found they likewise feel similar but are terrified to speak out
I have lost some friends. I have had social media bans and restrictions. I have been driven out of countless “LGBT groups” including my company pride network.
