  1. The Daily Mail were the first to criticise the Australian Journalists for the death of the nurse back in December but do nothing about this one!

    Such a hypocritical, vile excuse for a newspaper.

    Good luck to those taking part in the vigil later.

    It doesn’t take too much to see that the media are to blame yet again.

    Littlejohn saying someone should hide themselves. Start life somewhere else like some kind of criminal and why? To hide individuals because of their own intolerance, their own bigotry. Something children don’t have until their parents teach it to them.

    Those parent who outed this are also to blame.

    So yet again the media has blood on it’s hands along with the bigoted parents. Then they say these people make better parents because they are 1 man and 1 woman.

    Well this evidence shows very much the opposite. Children are at risk from bigoted parents and those parents should held to account.

  3. Could Littlejohn be the rat who ran back onto the safety of the ship and sank it in the process? Let’s hope so. I can’t wait to see that self serving hate rag, the Daily Mail, sunk once and for all.

  4. I support freedom of the press, but this is not journalism, it’s a mob without restraint attacking individuals for profit. This is nothing more than Human Hunting, pursuing people and destroying their lives to sell papers.

    The life and choices of this woman, the school or the parents of those children was not in the public interest, and that hate rag had no right to print anything about it at all.

    It is time we did something about this and stopped this sick bloodsport and it’s media backers. That goes for the Daily Mail, and all those trashy celeb magazines too. It’s time this lunacy ended and people did something about these scummy writers making money from attacking others.

    Surely we must be able to use our personal contacts to persuade family, relatives and friends to stop buying the Daily Mail. If you know anyone who buys the rag then please challenge them about their choice. The sooner we can close the paper the sooner the world will be a better place!

  6. In this caase the media are responsible. We all know that. However if you are going to quote statistics from the trans mental health survey could you also point out that this survey took its research from less than 900 people please? Theres apparantly 65000 Trans people and many of us aren’t suicidal and are very happy.

      This is a tragic case. Inaugorated by a group of parents who clearly know nothing about child psychology and an element of the media who just don’t care who they insult or what effect they have on innocent peoples lives, just so long as they get a nice paycheck in.
      The blame lies in three areas …
      The parents who started this off
      Richard Littlejohn, a known transphobe, who spread the misery
      and members of the general public who lap up this kind of gutter press
      Lucy fought bravely against the constant intrusion of the press but even this couragous lady finally could take no more.
