This matters to me because our family has been directly impacted by harmful gender and trans ideology. Due to the toxic nature of this debate, I have struggled to seek support and appropriate help for my child and myself.
Every public body is captured, including the NHS where they harmfully affirm children’s gender distress and systematically shutting down healthy debate and questioning.
I have been part of a parent support and lobby group, I have written countless to times to my local MP, I have been active on social media for over 2 years, I have attended conferences and talks on the topic, I have read reams of material, books and academic papers, I have helped to fund grassroots campaigns.
I lost a twitter account, I was doxxed and targeted on social media and my personal details were published on a website. I had to visit the local police to report a death and rape threat. I had the details of my situation with my daughter published by a trans activist on a large media outlet. I have lost friends and been alienated from social activities. I have suffered severe stress and suicidal ideation at the sheer horror of not being able to speak up about what was happening to my family.
