Maya Forstater has said that her landmark free speech ruling protects “everyone’s rights.”
Speaking on GB News, the former thinktank employee said that she was glad that she’d pursued an appeal in her dismissal case.
Maya Forstater’s contract was not renewed in March 2019 after she posted tweets opposing government proposals to reform the Gender Recognition Act to allow people to identify as the opposite sex.
On Thursday, Ms Forstater, who worked as a tax expert at the Centre for Global Development (CGD), won her appeal against an employment tribunal, a judgment which the international think tank described as “a step backwards for inclusivity and equality for all”.
Mr Justice Choudhury said the original tribunal had “erred in law”, but added: “This judgment does not mean that those with gender-critical beliefs can ‘misgender’ trans persons with impunity.”
Finding in favour of Ms Forstater, the High Court judge said her views “may well be profoundly offensive and even distressing”, but said they “must be tolerated in a pluralist society”.
Mr Justice Choudhury acknowledged “some trans persons will be disappointed by this judgment”.
In a statement released after the judgment, Ms Forstater said: “Thousands of ordinary people supported my case and today, I’m pleased and proud to say that we have been vindicated.
“Only the most extreme views, akin to totalitarianism or Naziism, are excluded from protection, and the judge said my belief, which is widely shared, and does not seek to destroy the rights of trans people, clearly did not fall into that category.
“No-one can be forced to profess a belief they do not hold, like trans women are women and trans men are men, and punished if they refuse.
“I’m proud of the role that I’ve played in clarifying the law and inspiring more people to speak up but we can’t leave the burden on individuals to put this right.”
Ms Forstater originally took her case to an employment tribunal on the grounds that her dismissal constituted discrimination against her beliefs. … Continue reading at GBNews >>>

Nonconformity and Freethinking Now Considered Mental Illnesses
We’ve been here before of course, shrinks and head quacks are now trying to say everything you do can be interpreted as a sign of mental illness. Its starange but the sickets, most dysfunctional people I’ve met have been psychatrists and psychologists – perhaps they want to make the rest of us as crazy as they are
How the gay-marriage campaign has unleashed a bureaucratic assault on people’s identities
Do gooders, progressives and bleeding hearts hurl hatred at those who question gay mariage. But these politically correct fools have as usual wallowed in their own self righteousness too long without thinking of the social consequences of this law which will devalue mainstream society to set up the gay community as a precious little elite
The politics of the left is the politics of insanity, we have been reporting on this for fifteen years (nine as The Daily Stirrer, before that as Little Nicky Machiavelli. And things are getting worse rather than improving. Every day we hear of some new politically correct idiocy from government or from NGOs set up … Continue reading
Homosexuality: As a liberal society we have a duty to tolderate, not celebrate
Even though the government has accepted a very limited definition of same sex marriage the gay lobby keeps raving on about the greates non issue of all time. But in a free society should we be subjected to bullying if we do not show enough enthusiasm for homosexual and lesbian relationships? When did indifference become a hate crime?
Gay and same sex marriage: The Bigotry And Intolerance Of Those Who Describe Themselves As The Liberal Left
With same sex marriage made legal in Britain we face the same kind of witch hunts against businesses that do not want to deal with beareded queens in bridal gowns as the liberal bigots and gay nazis are launching in the USA. As many of us new media common sense merchants predicted, once the principle was accepted in law, nobody would be allowed to opt out of supporting these bullies.

Overeducated Elitist Snobs Go For World DominationWe have written many times with tongues in our cheeks of The New World Order but what are we talking about. Is it a conspiracy theory like The Illuminati, are there shape shifting lizards involved. We wish, but sadly it is just a concensus political movement that blurs the lines betwen old parties but hardens those betwee the political, academic and financial elite and the lowrer orders. Find out how it operates below …
These stupid laws insult the public and threaten free speech
The thought police are well and truly embedded in the education system, the legal system, government and public services, everywhere you look in fact. Their dovtrines of multiculturalism and diversity and they sacred cows of human rights ad equality are suppressing freedom of speech and thought. But what do the politically correct thought police do when two of their sacred cows come into conflict …
When the law forbids us to insult or offend somebody, to insult or offend a religion, race, skin colour or sexual preference, free speech and other important democratic rights are under threat. When the law then goes on to say that anyone accused of these offences has no right to defend themselves and the word of the accuser is sufficient evidence on which to obtain a conviction then we have abandoned justice and are ruled by fascists.
Identities On ParadeEvery day we hear stories of the idiocies perpetrated by the Politically Correct Thought Police who in their zeal for being fair to ethnic, gender and sexual minorities only succeed in being unfair to everybody. This story of a Britisht army military tribunral and a case of discrimination against a woman soldier it is hearing reaches unprecedented levels of stupidity even for the Politically Correct idiots.
The Equalities BillThe Equalities Bill, passed by the previous Labour government before they were ejected from power becomes law today. This farrago is typical of the imbecilic mindset of the self righteous hypocrites who style themselves the progressive left. Presented as a law in support of equality in the workplace , in this era of pandemic joblessness and perpetual financial crisis it is nothing but an attack on the businesses that provide the real, wealth producing, revenue generating jobs in the private sector.
Is Criticising Black Gang Culture Racist
In Britain and America the left are always ready with the knee jerk reaction, crying raceism whjenever there is an opportunity. But do the facts justify the hysteria or is there more racism among poor black communities than mainstream society?

Transgender bullying is scaring respectable old organisations into silence
For years Katie Alcock had helped The Guide movemeny run Brownie and Girl Guide groups in her hometown, Lancaster. Then suddenly she was fired. The reason given in a statement by Girlguiding was that Dr. Alcock, had violated its policies on equality and diversity. Her offence was to suggest that science is correct and fashionable virtue signalling wrong, that people born male must be welcomed by a female-only organisation and, for instance, share tents or bathrooms with adolescent girls.

‘More than 30 Oxford academics have blasted Stonewall for pushing ‘tendentious and antiscientific claims’ in the trans awareness training it gives to universities according to a report in The Sunday Times (a more sensationalized version of the same story appears in The Daily Mail if you are blocked by The Times paywall).

Tacit Approval From US Liberals For Islamic Indoctrination In US Schools.
Swedish Government Review Of White Genocide (Immigration) Policy Concludes That Swedes Don’t Actually Exist …
Some schools in US State Of Virginia are closed today, because parents objected to Islamic indoctrination by the state education system. The US Constitution’s clauses on the separation of church and state forbid the promotion of any specific religious teaching, in fact US liberals tend to get their knickers in a twist over signs in classrooms that show the motto “In God we trust.”
… so its OK to give the country to a bunch of foreign terrorists whose medieval culture inclues stoning, raping and beheading women who are not servile enough, making a living from drug dealing, extortion, pimping, poncing and mugging.If you are Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, atheist or pagan, there is no future for you in Sweden because the elite are fobidding the prosecution of Muslims for crimes that are not outlawed in Sharia law.
