The Guardian ran a piece today: Police investigate online abuse against charity for transgender children
From the article:
The charity, which supports transgender children and their families, said it had been falsely accused of “enticing” children by attending recent Pride UK events.
One tweet sent to the charity included a poster that described Mermaids UK as a “dangerous cult”, saying staff planned to “groom gay kids”.
Mermaids UK’s chief executive, Susie Green, said she was falsely accused of forcibly castrating her transgender daughter. “They [people on Twitter] have referred to my daughter as my gay son and I have been accused of chemically castrating her,” she said.
