Oh wait, there it is.

Do women have a mind of their own?
I sincerely doubt any woman who is a lesbian is going to have sex with a person with a penis just because said penis haver has said they are a woman. But then again, maybe I am incorrect on that, maybe some do. Having said that there is a growing movement called Get The L Out, because of the cotton ceiling crap and because women holding Lesbians Don't Have Penises signs are not welcome at Pride parades. In fact they are being bodily removed by police for daring to think such things. I think the world has gone mad. Lesbians like women!

Yesterday at Swansea Pride, the police engaged a lesbian who had a sign saying Transactivism erases lesbians...

Otherwise, the police were having family friendly fun in Swansea...

Nah. Irish women reject this exclusionary nonsense

It is not illegal to have an opinion.

It should be in some cases, in many ways free speech was a mistake.

This is the point. She nor anyone else should lose their job for having opinions about this issue that are contradictory to what is politically acceptable. It is a very dangerous road to go down. Frightening really.

Kindly define "women" for me.

I'd hate to post an opinion that might get me into trouble with Terry the Budgie.

Go and have a look at some of the lesbian bashing on twitter. Apparently lesbians need to learn to like dick, and if they don’t, they’re transphobes.

I’m no expert, but I always thought the reason they were lesbian was because they don’t like dick. Totally confused now. That must make me a TERF too.

I find it odd that there is not such a big push towards gay guys having to consider men with pussies and boobs as sexually desirable. It's almost as if this is men telling women (again) what they should and should not like.

Once again, a person was allowed an opinion and faced the consequences of having that opinion.

Saying things have consequences!

I'm free to call my boss all manners of names to their face, however the consequence would be that I'd probably get sacked.

I don't get how people have forgotten that consequences are actual things!

People need to decide whether they want to be in politics or work in the private sector. All this soap boxing smacks of desperation to get some sort of 15 minutes of Twitter fame.

I can’t believe this woman thought her opinion was going to be met with resounding applause. There’s an appetite in the corporate world for inclusion and recognition, it’s good PR, and she would have been aware of this.
