With apologies to This Is Spinal Tap, someone at Pink News has just turned all the knobs to weird. Read This is what climate change and transphobia have in common, according to non-binary author Dr Meg-John Barker if you dare. There are some hilarious comments under Helen Joyce’s tweet, mostly from the ‘gender critical’ contingent on Twitter, who, as a rule, up to now, have accepted what we might call the ‘climate consensus’.
James Kirkup, who mostly writes for the Spectator, has indeed been brilliant, more than any other male journalist, in exposing the dangerous madness of extreme transgender activism. He has also indicated that he accepts the so-called consensus that man-made climate change is a major problem. I wonder if this clumsy attempt to bring the two issues together may provoke some second thoughts.
