Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A more general comment on transness and politics.

Not to diminsh the importance of current trends and legislative proposals in UK and US, I think what we see is a re-action to the broader visibility and acceptance of people being trans over the last 20 years. And while that reaction gets traction on some issues (bathrooms, womens sports) the greater visibility in combination with general acceptance I think points in the opposite direction. Or at least I hope so.

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. famously said "the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice". This is true on a historical timescale, but on the scale of a human lifetime it can, and definitely has been known to, bend towards injustice and get stuck there.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
