Lucy Meadows was a primary school teacher who did nothing other than to transition while keeping her job in the school. Unable to get her fired under the equal rights act, the more bigoted members of the community contacted the Daily Mail, and Richard Littlejohn wrote a column personally attacking her. He used the young children that she taught as a weapon, insisting that the transition would “damage their innocence”, referring to Miss Meadows as “he” throughout and declaring that she was putting her own wants above the well-being of the children she taught.
She was subsequently harassed by the press, all because she dared to transition and keep living her life like any other normal human being.
The Daily Mail only removed all mention of Miss Meadows from its article after she killed herself this week.
