Watching the left destroy itself over the trans nonsense is delightful.

Keep it up you freaks!

I know quite a few people who curse the names their parents gave them.

I don't like the term 'dead-naming' if it's being used to describe someone accidentally referring to a transgender person by their given name. Anyone can err, and tolerance should cut both ways. Big difference between making a mistake (I'd be willing to bet that a lot of transgender people accidentally 'deadname' themselves from time to time) and doing it because you refuse to acknowledge their identity and want to make them feel bad. Which is what Linehan was doing.

Although I laugh I do feel bad for the Brits. Imagine living in such police state that calling someone the wrong can name can bring the police to your doorstep.

Remember this is the country where you can be convicted of a hatecrime for posting someone else's rap lyrics online :

The UK is a bit of a dystopian future really in a lot of ways. Especially considering it has a right wing government. You really have to wonder how much worse could the newspeak be if labour were in power.

How would you like it if someone started calling you by one of your previous usernames? I'm joking.

He didn't just call her by the wrong name; he sought out her previous identity and published it to his 600,000 followers. Having that kind of a following carries a certain responsibility - something Linehan himself used to acknowledge (if he was retweeting someone who attacked him or said something stupid, he'd remove their username to spare them getting a backlash from his more sycophantic followers).

While I think what he did was stupid and dickish...

What's the point in denying that she was once that person? And, if there are any actions that person should have been held accountable for they haven't just gone away?

Are we just to start pretending that trans people just materialised at whatever age they decided to come out (or whatever the correct term is?)

There are two people here behaving poorly. From what I understand he wasn't the only one posting information that didn't need to be posted.

Trans is a diversionary tactic, look.... over there, while they do what they want to do anyway. Talking politics here.

Oh and while I am at it would anyone be able to tell me why LGBT includes the T word?

I get that they are genetically challenged, but are not Lesbian, Gay, or Bisexual. Fkn baffled at the way Trans have infiltrated. But there we are.
