To all the lovely people who’ve wished me happy birthday, thank you so much and look at my surprise birthday cake! https://t.co/cgkohO7Hs0
The writers of this letter are just two of a growing number of whistleblowers. The bleak truth is that if and when the scandal does erupt, nobody currently cheering this movement on will be able to credibly claim ‘we couldn’t have known’. https://t.co/8ughoMKCun 4/4
Since speaking up about gender identity theory, I’ve received thousands of emails – more than I’ve ever had on a single subject. Many have come from professionals working in medicine, education and social work. All are concerned about the effects on vulnerable young people. 3/4
It feels as though we’re on the brink of a medical scandal. A second paper concludes:
‘Psychiatry sits on this knife-edge: running the risk of being accused of transphobia or, alternatively, remaining silent throughout this uncontrolled experiment.’ 2/4
‘NHS identity clinics have been functioning as if acting outside the ordinary requirement of good medical and psychiatric practice.’
Some may dismiss this paper by experienced psychoanalyst @marcusevanspsych, but they do so at their own peril.

RT @TheIckabog: There’s been such a great variety of illustrations so far, keep it up! Why not try drawing a theme you haven't drawn yet? How would you draw The Ickabog’s song, Fright, Hatred or Bitterness? See the full list of illustration themes at: https://t.co/rSJAL8RmZo #TheIckabog https://t.co/uhLa0cpIin

"I fear that the detransitioned women I interviewed are canaries in the coalmine. Not only for detransitioners, but for womanhood. They all, in some combination, found being a woman too difficult, too dangerous or too disgusting" -- Laura Dodsworth
Nor me! That's why I'm not judging - I'd have put about 300 pictures in every edition! https://t.co/T6TKD7fNao
So that’s the end of The Ickabog! I can't adequately express how much I've loved seeing your pictures and hearing your thoughts on the story. If I’d ever needed reminding of what a joy it is to write for young people, this would have done it!
Ah, I love this picture, James, because [SPOILER ALERT]
it shows how easily Spittleworth could have mistaken Bert for his father in the final chapter! Bert looks as though he's passed through some serious hardship here, as he should! #TheIckabog https://t.co/rbh5PHjusY
Anasuya, I LOVE Mrs Beamish looking fierce with her saucepan, that kindly Ickabog and the cheerful sheep! Lovely work!��#TheIckabog https://t.co/t7nFyt8Lkp
There's nothing better to hear than that, Libby! Keep creating! https://t.co/x4KYF8c0uq
Srivathsan, this is a MAGNIFICENT picture of the Ickabog inside the cold cave, with our heroes in their nest of wool! You've painted it all so deftly, from the texture of the rock and the blaze of the fire to the Ickabog's scaly skin and those hanging icicles! ��#TheIckabog https://t.co/JHOj7urUKu
