Under intense questioning

Mermaids reports on the first day of the tribunal:

Paul Roberts, CEO of LGBT+ Consortium, gave evidence in support of Mermaids.

LGB Alliance’s legal team cross-examined Mr Roberts on his Witness Statement for several hours, and under intense questioning, he was clear that Consortium’s view is that trans women are women, trans men are men, and trans people belong in the LGBT community.

The tribunal also ruled in favour of publishing documents relevant to the case, including skeleton arguments and witness statements.

That’s it. That’s the sum total of their reporting. One of the martyrs was questioned for hours but he stuck fast to the dogma.

Not to mention the circularity of “trans people belong in the LGBT community.” Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? The “community” is lesbian, gay and bisexual people. If you add a T then you’re talking about a different “community.” Many people in the LGB community don’t agree that it has to be incloosive of T people, and consider it forced teaming. The issue is not whether trans people belong in the LGBT community but whether they belong in the LGB community.
