There have been calls to strip Sharron Davies of her MBE, she has been accused of 'fuelling hate' and three LGBT sports associations have released a joint statement denouncing her comments as "deeply irresponsible transphobia". Navratilova has been an LGBT activist for decades, but this didn't save her from the transfascists. She was sacked from the board of an LGBT sports charity and told that her comments were 'transphobic'. Eventually she was forced to apologise, albeit for the use of the word 'cheating'.
As Navratilova pointed out, the tendency to denounce anyone who disagrees with them as 'transphobes' is deeply troubling. Not just that, it's zealotry of the highest order, designed to stamp out free speech and discussion. In transgender circles the truth is no defence!
