PC debate: Brash 1 – Clark 0

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Helen Clark has axed Georgina Beyer’s Human Rights (Gender Identity) Amendment Bill from the legislative agenda this year.

Clark has told Beyer that her bill to protect transgender people from discrimination is “history”, and Beyer blames a “climate of intolerance” for its demise.

“I feel quite disappointed that I have had to capitulate. The political landscape has changed… They want to appease the more conservative elements that have come to the fore in recent years. It is quite alarming when you see this growing tide.”

Oh boo-fucking-hoo. Now there is no reason at all for Georgie to stay in Parliament. Odds are s/he will slink off into the never-never.
