    No smoking and no alcohol are easy "black and white" issues to police. "No transphobes" is always going to be a matter of opinion that will vary with the ideology of the person policing the rule. Too easily abused, too.

    No.
    What does the above have to do with my point that Pink News is lesbophobic?

    I thought you were better than putting words in other peoples' mouths. Seems I was wrong.

    the thing about these sorts of words is what they convey to the purgees or, as i might say, the people awaiting recalibration. you don't want to spook them before it's necessary: and talk of a purge would put their backs up.

    Are the lesbians who write for Pink News lesbophobic?

    Surely self hating lesbians turn into trans men :confused:

    Who knows? Of course, as a sometime journo yourself, you should be aware that most publications expect their reporters to follow an editorial line, and Ben Cohen has certainly proven to be lesbophobic.

    No, Pink News has opposed a very small sect of lesbians who oppose trans rights. It's no accident that after the anti-trans incursion at London Pride, trans people and lesbians marched together at the front of Pride marches all over the world. The anti-trans faction have loud voices and Murdoch to back them up (for now) but from what I can see with the huge outpouring of support for trans people from lesbian and gay people after the Pride debacle, they do not represent mainstream lesbian or LGBT opinion. It may be your opinion, but Pink News isn't written for you.

    Not if you think they shouldn't support trans people no. It's an LGBT publication.

    You're putting words in my mouth. Again.

    That is asymmetrically about Gay and Trans issues.

    Women are expected to give up working so as to parent, men are expected to give up parenting so as to work. Which is worse is endlessly debatable isn't it.

    Of course for a lot of unemployed, separated men this may mean no parenting AND no work. Not a recipe for any kind of health or happiness.

    And yet a brief scan of theitr current pages shows just one story about trans issues, a few about lesbians and many more about things which affect lesbian and gay, and LGBT people equally.

    Rob Ray Irony is well sad

    Fucking hell drop in briefly to find Panda insinuating that Pink News is lesbophobic because it's got a pro-trans stance, wtf is even happening on this thread any more. Bonkers.
