News like this is always to be welcomed. It means that the world is almost perfect. The roof is fixed, there’s no rising damp, the WiFi extenders are getting a signal to every corner of the house. Now we have heated arguments over the correct way to hang the toilet roll.

The world is almost perfect, isn’t it? No major issues?

So, some lunatic Christian group commission a study that asks insane questions of random people on the internet and carefully tabulate what may or may not have been the answers. Which incidentally showed strong support for letting trans people serve in the military. And you left out the responses to whether people should be able to self define as non-human.

Ah - fair enough. There were also the oddly self-referential questions about whether people above/below the age of 18 should be able to decide their own age.

Anthony Ekundayo Lennon is a British trans-black theatre director (facing bigotry because he is trans-black)
Anthony Ekundayo Lennon: my genes are white but I’m black
I say it's nice to have people of color like Mr Lennon in the arts
