This story speaks volumes about what is wrong with modern Britain:
A charity supporting transgender children and young people has issued an apology after thousands of emails were made public online.
Mermaids UK said it was “deeply sorry” for what it called a “historical data breach” after it was first reported by the Sunday Times.
The paper claims the correspondence included “intimate details”, names and addresses, but the charity denies this.
Mermaids said it had taken immediate action and reported the breach.
We have a political lobby group masquerading as a charity which is granted access to young children in order to “support” them should they believe they are of the wrong sex and wish to transition. But that’s all fine, apparently: what’s not is they’ve mishandled people’s data. This is like prosecuting Al Capone for tax evasion while being quite happy with the murders and bootlegging.
If Britain was a serious country those who founded this “charity” would have been run out of town on a rail the very first time they brought the topic up. But it seems degeneracy is nowadays to be celebrated, and adults with an unhealthy obsession with sex and sexuality given access to children regardless of parents’ wishes. I mean:
Transgender and gender variant children and young people need support and understanding, and freedom to explore their gender identity whatever the outcome.
This is taking place 9 years after a supposedly conservative party took the reins of the nation. Everyone is focused on Brexit, but it’s quite obvious the country has far deeper problems than membership of the EU.
