    What is the wording of that current PC mandate just out of interest?
    In the context of our discussion.

    All trans Women must be accepted as 100% female without question.

    All accusations of sexual abuse must be accepted and believed accurate when made.

    I'd say 'genuine' rather than 'accurate' on that second one, and 'assumed' rather than 'believed', but fine.

    So you don't think either of those statements are reasonable?

    BTW I'm not the arbiter of political correctness. There is no PC mandate.

    I think they're reasonable of course and I don't want to be seen as an Katie Hopkins/Piers Morgan type of idiot whose rallying against the horrible treatment of the incredibly privileged.

    My entire interest in these subjects is that a blanket approach isn't the answer. It's the correct direction and like any reasonable person I support a more tolerant society but there needs to be discussion and thought applied rather than acceptance without questions.

    I don’t think anyone’s disagreeing with that, so seems like we’re all on the same page.

    @Nexus_6 Thank you. I suspected there was a word for it. (Given that the english language have about 18 000x as many words as Swedish it would be surprising if there wasn't)

    In my mind equity is something to do with loans.

    Its the first time I had come across equity being used in this way.
    I too thought it was what old people freed up in their house by having a company buy it off them....

    I also believe it's something to do with horses. Possibly horse's rights.

    I feel like a certain Simpsons reference regarding a car called The Homer, would be appropriate here.

    January 2017: The Daily Star Sunday publishes a report claiming that convicted child killer Ian Huntley was transitioning to a woman and asking to be transferred to a women's prison. Story was picked up as an example of "trans rights gone mad" by the mail, the sun, metro, Hadley Freeman of the Guardian, and a host of others.

    February 2018: "Oops, our bad, no truth to that whatsoever"

    Someone at work held a door open and said "ladies first" to let the person the other side enter first. I have submitted a complaint to HR because sexism. #everydaysexism #mycultureisnotyourpromdress

    I can totally believe that's what was said in the editor's office, who by the way wrote this in the magazine concerning the article, again, another doozy...

    'Fielden (the editor) bemoans “safe spaces,” thinking especially about his 15-year-old son, who lives in a society that sometimes feels like “a Kafkaesque thought-police nightmare of paranoia and nausea, in which you might accidentally say what you really believe and get burned at the stake.”

    It's the one legged black lesbian unicycle riders that I feel most sorry for. I admire their stout resolution and bravery in the face of adversity every day.

    These days.

    You get arrested and jailed.

    Just for saying you're English.
