It was jointly hosted by Stonewall and Benoit but the platform appeared to have been Stonewall’s choosing, since Benoit told us she had never done a broadcast on TikTok before. Clearly Benoit wanted it known she was an equal in this partnership – and who could disagree?

CliniQ Annual Conference 2022
Because ‘transphobia’ was on the rise it was becoming increasingly difficult for people to talk to their GPs about their healthcare needs (and when they say ‘healthcare’ they really mean access to cross sex hormones). Thus began the conference which repeatedly focussed on GPs having the responsibility to manage ‘trans healthcare’, which really requires the monitoring of an endocrinologist if anyone has to be saddled with such a responsibility.
Webinar on ‘Camming: Money, Power and Pleasure in the Sex Work Industry’
Jones claims that she is a former sex worker, though naturally enough was short on any further details, and sounded curiously removed from the peoples’ lives she was discussing. She cheerfully told the students that camming reproduces a system of oppression, like heterosexism, sexism and ableism, which oppresses people. On the other hand, cammers reported ‘high rates of job satisfaction and experiences of pleasure’. Good rates of pay were also possible, she promised, but wanted to emphasise that doing the job wasn’t ‘just about money’, describing the global expansion of this sex industry as ‘exciting times’ and that sex workers had always been at the forefront of improving human sexual pleasure.

Charlie Craggs’ documentary ‘Transitioning Teens’
I watched Charlie Craggs’ BBC documentary Transitioning Teens and just five minutes into it we learn that we can go online into trans forums to learn about how to source hormone treatments illegally and that other users are able to provide advice on all aspects.
Review of documentary: In The Turn
Like other documentaries in this genre, the film is really about the mother and has the added dimension of providing a justification for mixed sexed sports. The mother is on a roller derby team (which appears to be mainly men) and she tells us she was drawn to the sport because it was inclusive of queer and transgender people. Roller derby is a full contact sport which appears to be 90 percent tackling, it has no governing body, and the rules of the game aren’t clear cut. I hesitate to denounce it as not a real sport, given my all-round ignorance on such things, but let’s just point out there’s no ball, and leave it at that.
