Stating the facts about sex and biology such as that men are men and cannot “become” women, is protected by the Equality Act 2010 in the United Kingdom, a stunning decision from a judge there has found.
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
The ruling came in the case of Maya Forstater, who lost her job for defending the reality of biological sex, according to a report from the Christian Institute.
She was a dismissed from her position as a tax consultant in 2019 after she said on social media that biology determines whether people are male or female.
An employment tribunal later ruled that action was legitimate, but a judge, Mr. Justice Choudhury, now has reversed that.
“I am delighted to have been vindicated. I lost my job simply for expressing a view that is true and important, and held by the great majority of people in this country: sex matters,” she said in a statement released by the institute. “Being a woman is a material reality. It is not a costume or a feeling. Institutions that pretend sex doesn’t matter become hostile places for women, in particular.”
The “tribunal” that ruled against her earlier had said her views were “not worth of respect.”
But the judge said, in his decision, those “beliefs may well be profoundly offensive and even distressing to many others, but they are beliefs that are and must be tolerated in a pluralist society.”
Her case now goes to a new tribunal for a determination if her dismissal was because of her “protected belief.”
To the Daily Telegraph earlier this year, Forstater said she not only lost her job, but was subjected to abuse, because of her beliefs.
She had worked for the Centre for Global Development in the U.K. when she wrote of her concern about allowing people to choose their gender, arguing it is determined by biology rather than identity.
DailyMail.com reported she wrote on Twitter it’s a biological fact that “men cannot change into women.”
She explained her employer immediately “expressed concern” and said, “I was told to put a disclaimer into my twitter bio and warned that a lot of people would find my tweets offensive and exclusionary.”
She then was dismissed, she said, even though she was found innocent of breaching company policy.
“I am concerned that governments around the world are rushing through laws and policies which say that people with male bodies can become women simply by identifying as women,” she explained.
Forstater wrote on Twitter that “when men wear make-up, heels, dresses they don’t become women.”
She also objected to the idea, now adopted wholeheartedly by the Biden administration in America, to allow men who call themselves women to access women’s restrooms, locker rooms and showers.
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
Join fellow patriots as we keep Americans informed and advance the cause of conservatism.
