Tax Expert Maya Forstater Fired for saying Trans Women not in fact women

It’s interesting to note what you’re not allowed to say these days. And, actually, what you are allowed to say. If you work for one of the more right on organisations that is. Such is what has happened to Maya Forstater, a friend of ours around here. Well, OK, she might not call reactionaries like me friend but we admire her work. We’ve even helped with it a little bit, talking about minerals, mining and revenues with her.

Maya has been fired for stating a view. Something that we think obvious but that’s not actually the point. Her statement was so far inside the boundaries of what should be accepted as just a difference of opinion that to lose a job over it is ludicrous. Yes, obviously, any employer should be allowed to fire anyone whenever they like. Or at least as long as whatever it is is within whatever employment contract both sides have voluntarily signed. So this is not to say that the Centre for Global Development have acted wrongly in firing whoever. Rather, it’s to note the sort of reason that the insane are using these days

This is what gets you fired:

Are trans women wholly and entirely women in exactly the same manner as other women? That’s rather something it’s possible to have views upon. Answers can range from a guffaw through to an insistence that they are, absolutely and without any difference. That first is impolite at best, that second is insane. There are indeed people who make special bleeding tampons for trans women to use so they get to experience those joys. But anyone insisting that the NHS provide cervical cancer checks for someone without a cervix is indeed insane.

Men in Dresses are NOT Women, anyone who loses a job for saying that has my encouragement to choke the living shit out of their management
