Response to Brummy Olivia

Maya Forstater did not send one, not two, but over A HUNDRED transphobic tweets, over the course of weeks. She repeatedly misgendered coworkers, she was admonished that her actions were causing a hostile work environment. She didn’t ease up one bit. If anything, she doubled down.

Ms. Forstater was engaged in political agitation to disrupt a bill that would’ve made it easier for transgender folk to change their gender markers. She did not want this to happen and actively campaigned to stop it from happening.

She is very clear in her public manifesto that she dismisses and rejects the transgender condition. It’s part of her credo.

Also, Ms. Forstater did not get fired. Her contract, which was over and up for renewal, did not get renewed.

Activist. Public speaker. Writer. Community Organizer. Mom. Creator & Host, Empowered Trans Woman Summit. Managing Editor,
