    Once again we see how little Trans people matter,the T in LGBT stands for token,someone to be thrown under the bus.

    1. Do you ever stop whining?

      You should be overjoyed that the ridiculous cult of England has nothing to say about trans people. Because if it did then I can guarantee it would be bigoted and wilfully stupid.

      Religion is a wilfully stupid lifestyle choice.

        Trans people have a lot to whine about.I’ll stop when there’s nothing to whine about,OK ?

  2. The CofE has a problem with inclusivity and pelvic issues, no surprises there then, it does get very wearing and tedious, though.

  3. Stop the whinging, dump the hate-filled religions and be happy as a Human being. LGBT you’ll never be fully accepted by their cult. Why be a minority within a minority, religious believers that is.

  4. So you’re unhappy the silly people that believe in a magic man that lives in the sky and needs your money won’t include you in their silly hat ceremonies?

    My work in child mental health brings me in contact with many gay, trans and intersex individuals, many if them are teenagers. I do not regard any complaint from oppressed minorities as ‘whining’ or ‘complaining’. I find it rather sad that some people feel that these distressed young people are wasting their time seeking to be recognised by a faith group. i am not a particularly religious person, but I would defend the right of anyone to believe and draw comfort from whatever source they choose. Gay, trans and intersex people experience enough criticism and prejudice from outside the various minority communities and don’t need it to come from within. On another issue, it really doesn’t surprise me that the T and I in LGBTI is often rolled into a generic grouping. Most people know very little about transsexualism and even less about Intersex (and care even less).

    Trans people should not fight conflation on one hand and then every time something is about sexual orientation only get up and shout that it had not been conflated. There is plenty of scope to look at gender and gender identity separately and not keep confusing things.
