    Why is it wrong to criticise people who are not qualified to give medical opinions when they do so? Is it because they have a lot of twatter followers that gives them some kind of magic credibility?
    It's not wrong at all butl I don't think she gave a medical opinion, and we're talking about the letter aren't we?
    And why/how are you in any way qualified to criticise ANYONE?

    Some posters on here may be the exception... But yeah, wokesters want to refer to women as 'people who menstrate' rather than women, to do otherwise is anti trans.

    Anyone is qualified to have an opinion.

    And anyone is qualified to criticise it.

    The degrees thereof vary.

    So you agree Rowling is qualified (to a dergree) to criticise the LGBTQ community. She is entitled to her opinion and to state it just as you are.

    Umm, I think Whingedoor is more appropriate and it is no surprise you show up in this thread like you do all of these geriatric whinge threads and you are always one of the top posters.

    All of this is derived from the same root source. The hate has a root that it feeds off of and let's be honest you lot are really angry.

    All of you right wing lemmings are the same and you all spew the same supplied talking points. There is not a pure independent thought amongst any of you.

    So prominent historians of race and slavery, including Nell Irvin Painter, who wrote The History of White People and David Blight, who heads Yale University's Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition are Right wing lemmings that lack independent thought?

    It's lucky we are blessed with free thinkers such as you and Ray.

    Princess, who's whinging i find you lot beating your PC chests hilarious. If you and your chums also want to have periods its your choice, you all already have PMT, more frequently than the real thing. Its all about creating the right atmosphere on TD to encourage the hoards of millennials just waiting for the Boomers to move on.

    That is the whole point. It excludes all transgendered "women" as being considered as "women", and that is very against current PC thinking.

    It is a hugely complex issue, way above my pay grade. While i understand transgendered womens point, i have also seen, lets say biological women, have real problems in things like shared bathing facilities and bathrooms.

    Like i said, above my pay grade.

    ezra klein summed it up quite succinctly...

    "A lot of debates that sell themselves as being about free speech are actually about power."

    Do you remember that American TV series Ally McBeal, also popular in the UK about 20 years ago? One of their big ideas was a unisex bathroom. Here we are two decades later and the idea never got any traction. Presumably because it wasn't popular amongst 'people who menstruate'. Does that make them all wrong?
    JK Rowling said somewhere that she was abused when younger and that was part of the reason why she wanted safe spaces. Which seems in most contexts to be a reasonable opinion. Anyway it is her opinion and I have no trouble with it. I also have no trouble with different opinions. I do have a problem with vociferous minorities trying to 'cancel' her for having an opinion they don't share. Which I think was the OP's core point.
