The Green Party must respect our sex! – Emma Bateman

As some of you may know, a couple of weeks ago I was expelled from the Green Party (GPEW). I expect it will come as no surprise to hear that the complaint that triggered this expulsion is centred on my gender critical beliefs.

It has come as quite a shock, as I believe that that the evidence against me is extremely poor. I will be appealing against the decision because it is important to challenge the structures and processes in the Party that are being employed in an unjust way against members. It is tempting to put the “evidence” that was used to expel me out in the public realm to show how ridiculously threadbare it is, but I have been advised that this will not help my case or my appeal. All I can say is that it is a real shame that so little progress has been made on recognising the validity of different opinions in GPEW since July 2020 when Bea Campbell observed of the debate on sex and gender “Clearly, there is a debate and there isn’t: it is mangled in the party’s disciplinary – rather than democratic – processes.”

I spoke to Graham Linehan about my expulsion a few days ago. You can watch that interview here
