"Some of these issues are certainly open to debate and scrutiny but this is part of the problem; when it comes to the trans issue there appears to be no scope for dissent or debate. "
"This issue has taken on importance not because of the choices being made by a small number of adults but because in the last ten years the number of adolescent girls wanting to transition has increased by over 4000%."
"Some argue that this is progress, that there has always been this desire, and that we now have a tolerant elite who are allowing teenagers to find their true selves. But this viewpoint is highly questionable. Rather than believing that this is a natural development, something that is intrinsic to a person and a matter of individual choice we need to recognise that this is a cultural and political phenomena."
