I have reported this petition. It is part of a vicious campaign of lies against a woman whose only sin is that of trying to widen the debate on the proposed changes to the GRA and against @Womans_Place_UK which has been facilitating that dialogue.

I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler...

Are the 400 of us who attended a @Womans_Place_UK meeting at a location kept secret till the very day on the 27th or other women who have gathered to debate and discuss the changing meaning of the word "woman" included in that statement, @DawnButlerBrent ?
#LabourLosingWomen Are women being misrepresented as bigots in order to expel them from @UKLabour for pointing out women and transwomen face different challenges and have different needs stemming from having different physiology also included in that statement, Dawn?
