Explanation of vote: rejecting the new trans orthodoxy and why we need open debate

At the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Wednesday 18 December, Claire explains her decision to abstain on the motion surrounding LGBTI public discrimination because of the civil liberties and freedom of speech limitations. She is concerned the motion will criminalise debate surrounding the trans community, particularly when some of the biggest opponents of this new dogma are lesbians and feminists, as it forces women to deny their biology and their autonomy. Claire finishes by criticising the EU’s top-down imposition of this new orthodoxy on to members states.
