I gather there is going to be an election in the U.K. A lady named Jo Swinson is head of the third place Liberal Democrats. The Lib-Dems are big on the T in LGBT, but, amazingly enough for 2019, they are getting some resistance:
Wake up to hear Jo Swinson tell @JustinOnWeb that biological sex – the fact there are male and female humans – does not exist. A person who would be Prime Minister denying science. Unbelievable.

Puberty-blocker drug firm donated cash to Lib Dems

A pharmaceutical firm that markets drugs used in gender-identity clinics to delay puberty has given £100,000 to the Liberal Democrats.
Jo Swinson’s party has already upset feminists, who worry that the “extreme trans-ideological” policies in its manifesto will put vulnerable women at risk. …
The firm, owned by the Swedish billionaire Frederik Paulsen, markets the drug triptorelin, which is used to block puberty among adolescents.
The Lib Dem manifesto pledges “complete reform of the Gender Recognition Act to remove the requirement for medical reports, scrap the fee and recognise non-binary gender identities”.
There appears to be more pushback in Britain from women against men in dresses in girls’ locker rooms and women’s prisons. I was going to ask why, but I guess the more puzzling question is why not in the U.S.
