Transgender Dispute

We are appalled that trans rights are being used to excuse an unprincipled campaign of harassment and abuse.

Sir, As transsexual people, we deplore the continuing attacks on Professor Kathleen Stock (Times Oct 9 & 11). We are appalled that trans rights — our rights — are being used to excuse an unprincipled campaign of harassment and abuse. Like any other group, trans people hold a range of opinions. Attacks on the freedom of expression are not progressive and do nothing to fight against actual prejudice or win better services for trans people. If bullies manage to silence Kathleen Stock, they will not stop there.
