Unelected Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has appointed Kemi Badenach, who is staunchly opposed to trans parties, to his cabinet as Minister for Women and Equality.

Sunak spent the day (October 25) appointing his new cabinet after being named the third Tory prime minister in as many months.

Among his appointees are Jeremy Hunt, who remains chancellor, James Cleverley as foreign secretary and Dominic Raab as deputy prime minister.

Badenach not only received a high position in State Equality Office (GEO), but she was also appointed Secretary of State for International Trade. Because, apparently, Rishi Sunak doesn’t believe that a brief on women and equality is worth the minister’s full attention.

She took over from Liz Truss’ Equality Minister Nadhima Zahavi, who in turn took over as Boris Johnson’s Women and Equalities Minister after Liz Truss.

Badenach previously served under Truss at GEO during the Johnson administration, where she said she felt “empowered” to fight back against trans rights.

“I couldn’t have done anything without my senior minister, Liz Truss, allowing me to challenge the advice, meet with those involved and do my job as she saw fit,” she wrote in The Sunday Times July 31.

In her time as junior equalities minister, GEO not only failed to ban conversion therapy, but also failed to deliver significant reform of the Gender Recognition Act – both of which were promised by Boris Johnson ahead of the 2019 General Regulation. election as reported PinkNews.

Bodenock met in secret with both anti-broadcast campaigner Kira Bell and the anti-transgender lobby group LGB Alliance during her first tenure as equalities minister. It was reported that the LGB Alliance had approached her to oppose a ban on conversion therapy, a practice the UN considers to be “torture”.

At the time, civil servants reportedly said it was “inappropriate” for Badenoch, whose job it is to promote “equality of transsexuals” to talk to people who want to limit the rights of young trans people.

The Tory MP “rejected” them and nevertheless spoke to anti-trans transport campaigners.

After Boris Johnson resigned in disgrace just a few weeks ago, Kemi Badenach was one of many, many MPs who threw their hat into the race to succeed him as Prime Minister. Although Truss won one of the two leadership races this year, making history as the UK’s shortest-serving prime minister, Badenoch was one of the power-hungry MPs who saw themselves as prime ministers in British politics.

But despite saying she was “going to win”, getting the support of fascist far-right group Britain First and positioning herself as an “anti-awakening” candidate – whatever that means – she failed to make the final round of voting. being dropped from the race on July 19. 2022. Literally at the beginning of this year.

Greens MP Caroline Lucas reacted to the news of Badenoch’s appointment with a sarcastic quip on Twitter: “Kemi, Badenoch’s ‘culture war warrior’ to be our equalities minister…great.”

In comments leaked in 2021 but made in 2018, just a year after Kemi Badenoch became an MP, she reportedly described trans women as “men who use women’s toilets” and asked : “We have gay marriage and civil partnerships, so what are transsexuals looking for?”

The remarks were revealed in a leaked recording VICE World News.

In the audio, Badenock said, “It’s not about minority rights anymore in terms of race or nationality, now, you know, it’s not even about sexuality, now as a whole transsexuals movement where, well, we have same-sex marriage and civil partnerships, so what are transsexuals looking for?’

She continued: “Even though, you know, yeah, people hear about, you know, like this whole bathroom thing, it’s actually more of an American thing, but they have a similar problem that now it’s not just about being free get married for whom you want, now you want men to use women’s toilets.’

The government spokesman defended Badenach’s comments at the time were said to have been taken out of context. No, we don’t know how either.

A year later, Boris Johnson appointed her as the Deputy Secretary of State for Children and Family Affairs in Parliament.

She was also offended because she allegedly arranged meetings with the so-called “ex-gay” groups. and jumping to defense of anti-trans professor Kathleen Stock.
