Trans Sport and the Assault on Women

Mar 6, 2019

My thesis is simple: if you say you care about women, you should be fully against transgenderism in sport. Put another way, if you fully favour trans sports, you really have a very low view of women. Yes it really

Shamima Begum: Is Wright Wrong Again?
