A Labour councillor has claimed she suffered transphobic abuse from a fellow delegate at the Labour party conference, Councillor Patricia Hannah-Wood, of Pendle Labour Party said that she was abused by “one of our sisters in this conference hall now”.
Ms Hannah-Wood who is a transsexual woman, said “On Sunday evening I was in the loo downstairs with a few of my colleagues from the north-west when I was transphobically abused in this conference centre by one of our sisters in this conference hall now.
She continued, “It should not happen, we have got an anti-bigotry and anti-bullying policy in the Labour Party, “We need it to be enforced.”
One has to be so careful nowadays when wishing to comment on so many things, so I will attempt to tread as carefully as I can to try to put the other side of the story.
I have never seen this woman before and only heard her comments today on the television but one is forced to wonder, as she looks like a man and sounds like a man could the abuse be nothing more than another woman who entered the toilet pointing out that the men’s loos are next door, who knows?
