To our detractors

On April 20th 2021 Lesbian Labour launched our website. We received overwhelmingly positive support.

However, within our own party the reception was varied. Comments on one Facebook group were shockingly hostile. The post attracted almost 1,000 comments. Though many members spoke up and argued our case very well, the ratio of negative to positive comments was 2:1.

The responses of a group of individuals on Facebook is not necessarily indicative of attitudes across the party towards Lesbian autonomy. However, such hostility requires a very firm response. This is no way to create a welcoming space for Lesbians.

As Lesbians we have every right to self-organise and do not seek or need permission from hostile men, or women with a different point of view.

The comments levelled at us were offensive and inaccurate and made spurious unfounded allegations.

We have gone through the comments and distilled the various criticisms. Here are our answers.

I have been fighting for Women's rights since I was 14. It started with a school protest to get us the right to wear trousers
We went to Greenham Common and protested about Nuclear Weapons and were treated appallingly as Women. I walked to Moscow and saw how Women were treated in other countries
I'm staying unless I'm expelled

A commitment to accept Cass Recommendations has been made by this Govt’ but it looks increasingly as though there might be a Labour Govt’ in the near future. We need to hear from @Keir_Starmer & @wesstreeting that they understand the importance of Cass & will accept the Report
The Tavistock will be replaced by two Regional Centres where the practise will be no longer be ‘affirmation without exception’. CAHMS, children’s mental health services are already overstretched & unfunded so unless there is some real investment the new GIDS could easily regress.
‘An American-style “gender affirming” treatment model zeroed in on a dysphoric child’s supposedly immutable trans soul, and gave too little weight to a patient’s more earthly issues such as psychiatric disorders, struggles with same-sex attraction, autism, or family trauma.’
