  1. Ben Summerskill says, “We still have one openly lesbian parliamentarian out of 1,300 in the House of Commons and House of Lords. That is ridiculous.”

    Indeed it is. We also only have one out bi man, and no out bi women at all, which given there are more bis than lesbians and gay men put together is even worse.

  2. If the proposed ‘Equality Bill’ does not include ALL transgendered people, then, by definition, it is not an *Equality* Bill, simply because it rules that not ALL PEOPLE are equal. Presumably then, the people whom the Bill-makers elect to leave out will be exempted from taxes, because for a government to be truly democratic there cannot be taxation without representation – apparently.

  3. If the proposed ‘Equality Bill’ does not cover ALL transgendered people, then it ceases to be an *Equality* Bill as it does not include ALL people. Presumably then, the people whom the Bill-makers have elected to leave out will be exempted from taxes, because in a democratic government there is no taxation without representation – apparently.

  4. Oops…sorry. Didn’t mean to post twice! Now that’s over-representation which equals extra tax:)
