Coverage of the Scottish 'Women's Rally'
Video coverage of the Women's Rally against The Gender Recognition Reform Bill
I was outside Scottish Parliament on Thurs 6th October to document a demonstration organised by For Women Scotland against the Gender Recognition reform bill.
The sizeable gathering was entirely peaceful and a number of women with different backgrounds and expertise addressed the crowd. You can watch those speeches in full below:
Or, if you are strapped for time, here’s a shorter highlights version I created:
Also, thank you those of you that came over to ask for pictures and say hi.
Bad actors engaged in this issue want you to believe that the organised pushback to gender ideology is mostly comprised of men on the far-right. They describe the organisations involved in these demonstrations as “hate groups” and claim they desire to strip transgender people of their rights—or worse.
But this is the complete inverse of every demonstration I have reported from on this issue. The organising groups and attendees mostly consist of liberal mothers, grandmas, daughters, gay men, gay women and anyone else that is concerned that the march of gender ideology is steam-rolling over their own rights.
I’d urge you to listen to the speeches and attempt pinpoint any hatred, bigotry, ‘transphobia’ or unreason. I’d also urge you to listen to other gender critical women on this issue to know exactly what their concerns are—rather than taking trans activists smears at face value. Listen to all sides and make your own mind up. Because there is a surplus of gender ideologues heavily involved in this battle whose only accomplishment will be to have rendered the words “bigot” and “fascist” meaningless.
If these mostly middle-aged feminists are a “far-right fascist” threat in your mind, then you really have led a sheltered existence.
There’s also an excellent video of the demonstration produced by For Women Scotland of the event that highlights the main issues and the viewpoints of those involved:
