Sean Plunket invited Speak Up For Women to join him on Magic Talk to discuss the Wellbeing Budget and in particular the $3million set aside for gender reassignment surgeries over the next 4 years.

 

  1. Imperical data on the health outcomes of gender transition which demonstrate Ani is *wrong*:

    Sean Plunket’s perspectives on feminism:

    The ideas that transphobic views are supported by medical or scientific data, or that transphobic views are being pushed out of the mainstream when they come from privileged mouthpieces like Sean Plunket are indefensible. On what level can Ani even pretend to be ‘concerned for the welfare of women and girls’ here?

    The Speak Up for Women spokesperson Ani was quoting from a reputable study https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0016885.

    Transgender medical care an area that would benefit from more study, but the subject is so politicised by trans activists that has become more difficult. It is particularly difficult to research detransitioners. Take the case of LGBT activist James Caspian who campaigned for transgender rights for years. When he saw an increasing number of young people regretting their transitioning he wanted to research through Bath Spa University.

    “He submitted a revised title in October 2016: ‘An examination of the experience of people who have undergone Gender Reassignment Procedure and/or have reversed a gender transition.’

    “James accepted the research might not be ‘politically correct’, but felt it was important.

    “The next month the university rejected his proposal on the basis that ‘the posting of unpleasant material on blogs or social media may be detrimental to the reputation of the University’.”https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4979498/James-Caspian-attacked-transgender-children-comments.html#ixzz4vXKDo9Xz

    Sean Plunket is an experienced interviewer, his own political views are not relevant, any more than the views of other media people who have interviewed Speak Up.
