Reasoned Voices to Tabloid Ranting on Trans

10/09/2021

Conservative activists Crispin Blunt MP and Sue Pascoe have penned an article for the Conservative Home web portal outlining how the British newspapers, most of them hostile to LGBTQIA civil rights, have whipped up what they describe as a “moral panic” about transgender young people. Top newswire Pink News reports that Blunt and Pascoe describe how the current reportage is so similar to the anti-gay and anti-lesbian hysteria of the press in the middle eighties, which opened the door to anti-gay legislation in the shape of Section 28 of the 1988 Local Government Act. the media have had a field day fear mongering, misquoting and creating moral panic over the Scottish Government’s ‘Supporting Transgender Pupils in Schools – Guidance for Scottish Schools,'” Blunt and Pascoe wrote.
