The trans teen trend: a case of social contagion?
I enjoyed taking part in this thoughtful panel debate at the Battle of Ideas, London, back in October. The film, produced by volunteers for the brilliant education charity WORLDwrite, has just come out, at a time when developments in Scotland provide a urgent need for ongoing, open discussion of the many issues involved.
Fellow speakers on this panel were James Esses – barrister; social commentator; co-founder, Thoughtful Therapists; Katy Jon Went – diversity and inclusion facilitator and educator, Human Library, Pick My Brain, GenderAgenda, Fifty Shades of Gender; and Helen Joyce – director of advocacy, Sex Matters; author, TRANS: when ideology meets reality. The chair was Claire Fox – director, Academy of Ideas; independent peer, House of Lords; author, I STILL Find That Offensive!
