This case was pretty close to a good friend.

https://amp.theguardian.com/world/2024/jan/22/open-university-academic-wins-tribunal-case-over-gender-critical-views

The OU is a ‘strange’ place, stuck in the dark ages in many respects and this caused a stir.

Views on women with a penis?

I listened to an interview, with the professor that won this tribunal case, on the radio the other day.

Seems to me the OU treated her very poorly and in general Uni's have a growing problem with free speech and how to handle it.  My view has always been that as long as comments being made are legal then the way to challenge is by listening and offering different voew points.  Simply shutting down opposing views does more damage than good.

My only criticism of the professor is why they called their group "Gender Critical Research Network".  The term "Gender Critical" is used by some to mean anti Trans which they would well know.  Also comes across as overly negative.  I'm assuming most of those that were critical just made an assumption based on the name and it gathered pace.

As for trans gender.  I think BOTN summed it up really well.  One of my best friends transitioned about six years ago.  Absolutely the best thing they ever did for themselves.  A stressfull, time consuming and difficult process though.  It's a shame, much like every subject, that the press and some members of the public only seem interested in the extreme stories that make up a tiny fraction of what is happening in the real world.
