No doubt by those who would label themselves liberal, but who are in reality closed minded, progressive, authoritarian bigots seeking to impose their views and only theirs on society. The flavour comes through from this ‘ embed gender, gender identity and sexual orientation into the fabric of your organisation” – why should this be used as a primary lens in determining the attitudes of people and orgnaisations. Surely tolerance and and an open mind or more important.
