No-one who remembers the lurid sexual revelations that came out when the Conservatives were trying to represent the Moral Majority will be surprised by the . As then, what matters is not what they get up to but that they ruin the lives of others for doing likewise.

I'm part of a generation that grew up afraid to hold hands with perceived same sex partners and that kind of behaviour from men used to make me feel that I had no right to be affectionate with a woman in public because I was putting her in danger.

It probably felt most dangerous at night, on the way home from clubs, but it frequently happened inside clubs with men apparently unconcerned to be seen to behave like that, and it happened on busy streets in broad daylight.

I was never afraid to do what I had to to look after myself but I used to worry for the women I was with, and it was fucking infuriating that I couldn't just go about my business without having to be ready for a fight.

Aye. As someone generally assumed to be female I've had this problem since around 1988. I've only actually been queerbashed by women but I've been grabbed and sexually assaulted by men who targeted me because I had a female partner, on numerous occasions.

They're also significantly older, on average, than the general population. Young people are being denied a say in a decision which, at this pivotal point in history, could have a devastating impact on their future.

I'm all in favour of PR - FPTP is just about the worst available option - just wary of making predictions about it. I'm really pleased to have found this account. btw. :)

My team at has spent almost a decade working to see trans and intersex issues represented fairly, accurately and respectfully. We're always happy to assist other groups on the receiving end of hate.

These things are always tricky, mind, because whilst you can predict what might happen the first time, afterwards people would start figuring out how to vote tactically and the pattern would shift again even if policy preferences didn't.

If Duterte really has made some brilliant discovery that he thinks could actually help those who want it, in an area where all others have failed, why isn't he devoting his life to science rather than to organising pogroms against assorted vulnerable minorities?

We don't need to be cured because we're not diseased. This is the kind of rhetoric that, time and again, precedes genocides.

I'm with you on that. That popular belief is part of the reason why most celebrities basically have the same faces, which makes them (a) quite boring to look at, and (b) quite hard to tell apart (quite a problem is my line of work).

I signed a new book contract today. Over the next few months I'll be researching and writing 'Growing Older as a Trans or Non-Binary Person'. As always, I'm seeking a wide range of perspectives from people living those experiences, so get in touch if you'd like to contribute.

Weirdly, I just finished rewatching the final series of 'Blake's 7' about half an hour ago - apart from the final episode, which continues to make me feel sad.

He and Michael Keating were particularly entertaining together. I don't think they ever stopped being Avon and Vila when in one another's company. The banter as exactly the same offscreen as on.

I'm really sad to hear about the death of Paul Darrow. We met a couple of times and he was always fun. 'Blakes 7' meant a lot to me as a child. I was four when it started and I remember feeling, watching it, that at last I had found my people.

. Could you give your permission for Ken Macharia to remain the UK and not be sent back to Kenya where he risks persecution because of his sexuality, as you office has ordered?

'Ultra-remainers'? Degrees of Leave I can understand but there's really only so much remaining we can do.
