by Amber Roberts Gender Critics believe that Trans Women aren’t Women as strongly as we believe that Trans Women Are Women, no matter what anyone tells them to the contrary. On both sides of this we have people making threats, shouting abuse and being hateful in general. This behaviour needs to stop on both sides, […]
If you are melting down over the World Cup in Qatar; ask yourself why you didn’t have a similar meltdown over the one in Russia in 2018? Be honest about it. At that point in the world, despite Russia genocidally ravaging Syria, annexing and waging war against Ukraine and overseeing the fatal persecution of homosexuals […]

We are finally getting to grips with the solid fact of the matter: 2014 cannot be repeated. We need to find another way, or ways to move forward towards independence.
