Call us Cassandra

In Greek mythology, Cassandra was cursed to utter true prophecies that would never be believed. I suspect she may have been trans.

Since the Bell vs Tavistock case was first announced, trans people have been trying in vain to get people to understand the real goal that “gender critical” feminists are supporting: the end of the Gillick competence that ensures, among other things, that teenage girls can access contraception without their parents’ consent.

For more than a year people have been telling us that we’re wrong, and that the case was absolutely nothing to do with Gillick competence.

Today, Kiera Bell’s lawyer – better known for his many anti-abortion cases – took his mask off in true Scooby-Doo villain style.
