    I heard the complainers frustration on the news last night. I can't help feeling that he missed the point.

    The best way to promote freedom of one group is not to attack the freedom of another. I hate to use the word snowflakes, but at times I feel the rainbow alliance is putting the advances in civil liberties which have been achieved in jeopardy.

    They should be careful what they wish for. Most people are reasonable but when activists start going to excess like this, and hit the wrong target, it sends out the wrong message.

    For example, a museum in London had been forced to change its exhibition praising the contribution of "womXn" in society.

    Google what's that about, and you start to feel that there are much more important jobs to be getting on with.

    Peter Tatchell's take on it.

    He's not always my favourite guy, but IMO he's spot-on here.

    Like the way he phrased it, "a gay baker doesnt have to bake a cake with a homophobic message".

    Hard to argue with any of that. Spot on covers it.

    I normally can accept people holding an alternative view and can understand why someone I disagree with holds their opinion, but Tatchell nails it 100% and I find it hard to understand how anyone can disagree with his position on this?

    if its the Wellcome exhibition you are referring to, they weren't in any way "forced to change the name". It was the museums own choice, and it has been widely derided and mocked by womens groups, and they ultimately issued an apology accepting they got it wrong.
    It does change your point somewhat, unless it is a different event...
