    Default Drag queens banned from Pride in Glasgow as they may offend trans people

    So there's a new Pride in Glasgow and drag queens are banned
    Drag queens banned from Pride event 'because they may offend transgender people' - News - London Evening Standard
    “The decision was taken by transgender individuals who were uncomfortable with having drag performances at the event. It was felt that it would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable."

    What do you mean by gone mad? It was always mad. It may have taken a while to come out, but it's essential intolerance, intellectual inconsistency an socially decisive nature is finally coming to the surface.

    This is not the first time the militant activists have turned on their own though, because a few weeks ago they banned the UKIP homosexuals from marching too. In these instances we see the true meaning of poitical correctness- a political strategy to use the front of fighting intolerance as means of disarming critics, so that once in a position of influence you can redefine intolerance to mean pretty much anyone who does not think like you do. It uses to rhetoric of the marginalized to mask the fact that it uses the tactics of thugs.

    Does this exclude "people outside the gender binary" also?

    Not much. Irrelevant and a yawn really, like an Orange March in a loyalist area.
    Brexit comes straight from hell. Everywhere it goes it causes disharmony, turbulence and misery. I think Brexiteers themselves must have some form of mental illness.
