Excellent summary Katrina, thank you for all your hard work. Just after Laurel Hubbard was awarded his Woman of the Year sporting award from the University of Otago, I received a scholarship fundraising fancy printed solicitation from them. I emailed at least ten addresses to say that while a university that contains a medical school cannot tell the difference between a man and a woman, I would not be donating to any of their causes, however worthy. I had not a single reply from anyone at the University.

And in regard to the spineless NZCOM who have bowed to the bullies who call themselves the 'rainbow midwives', I suspect the situation here is not much different from that in the UK. According to this source https://with-woman.org/2023/01/04/open-letter-pause-midwifery-training-based-on-flawed-research/#more-344, "The current estimate of prevalence of TNB maternity service users is at most 1 in 2000, therefore most midwives will not care for a trans or non-binary person during their career." And of the approximately 60,000 births/year in NZ about six of these will be to women who identify as something else. So, these women are being catered to at the expense of thousands of truly vulnerable women having babies every year.

Terrific summary, Katrina. As you say, for such a small country, it’s a longer list than you’d expect. Here’s to opening more eyes and raising awareness in 2023.

The Left's approach to this issue could be characterised as being 'kind' to be cruel. As such, it's the end of the Left for so many of us long term lefties, which is depressing, to put it mildly, as there is no political alternative. But there is hope in the truth keepers and speakers like you. So thank you, and friends, for this vital record keeping. Hope is that thing with wings...

Rex Landy's is not the first example. I have had two complaints from Cate Spice that have resulted in visits by police to my door, both in 2021. The second visit I was told that Spice would be taken to task for wasting police time and I have not heard anything since. Spice trawls my substack with his various aliases making threats too btw.
