“We need help – we can’t do this on our own”

The F Word has an interesting interview with Paris Lees that’s well worth your time.

The amount of column inches that have been devoted to abusing trans people. The amount of energy and money! It’s like there are these endless resources to do this and yet there is no evidence that trans people are causing problems.

…We’re less than 1% of the population. For all the talk of a “trans lobby”, the truth is we don’t have any MPs. I think we have one high court judge. We don’t have royalty or pop stars or chat show hosts.

…We need help – we can’t do this on our own. We need people to be real allies and show up in solidarity.
