Only in the Guardian
« on: February 10, 2018, 03:46:01 PM »
Before I get to the point, I want to make clear that I read the Guardian from time to time because there are some good articles from time to time, and yes it is free. But I am not a Guardian reader. A Guardian reader is someone who is in total agreement with the left wing and politically correct views expressed.

Today a headline caught my eye:-

Debate over inclusion of trans women in women-only spaces intensifies

Debate over the inclusion of self-identifying trans women in women-only spaces intensified this week, as another group met privately to discuss the contentious issue.

I wonder if intense debates are raging in the bars and restaurants in Korat over this contentious issue?

 Debate over the inclusion of self-identifying trans women in women-only spaces intensified this week, as another group met privately to discuss the contentious issue.
 
Members of the famous women-only swimming pond on Hampstead Heath in London held a meeting on Thursday to discuss “perspectives on transgender swimming” after a decision to explicitly allow trans women access.

Press were excluded from the private meeting of 100 of the 400 members of the Kenwood Ladies’ Pond Association (KLPA), which the Guardian understands was called after concerns around its stated policy were raised.

“It’s an important issue,” said one insider. “There are different views about trans women using the pond and some of us are concerned about the fact that it has always been the only all-women swimming place in Britain.”

Activists from the radical feminist group Mayday 4 Women stood outside the meeting urging members to lobby to “keep the Hampstead Heath ladies’ pond a sanctuary for women”.

They handed out leaflets saying: “Males already have have access to two ponds: the men’s pond and the mixed pond. Why should they have access to three ponds when they already have access to two?”

In January, the City of London, which manages Hampstead Heath and its ponds, confirmed that the ladies’ pond – which counts famous people such as Helena Bonham Carter and novelist Esther Freud among its swimmers – welcomed trans women.

It said trans women have been able to use the Kenwood Ladies’ Pond since the introduction of the Equality Act 2010, which prohibits unlawful discrimination on the grounds of transgender status. A spokesman said all lifeguards and managers at the ponds had taken trans awareness training. “The City of London Corporation is committed to gender respect and equality in all forms,” he said.

In a statement, the KLPA said it was committed “to helping to create at the Ladies’ Pond an inclusive environment for all women, including tragender women, which is free from discrimination, harassment or victimisation”.

Since this is such an extremely important issue I think we should expect KoratFart to make its official position known and take a firm stance.
