Vanguard Party will champion women’s and girls’ rights. It will oppose any denial of biological truth and preserve the distinction between sex, which is binary, and gender, which is fluid and seemingly unlimited.
Vanguard Party will protect women’s rights to same-sex spaces by not enabling gender changes for legal purposes, such as claiming discrimination in the provision of services. It will oppose self-identification.
Vanguard Party will oppose any attempt to reduce the age of consent. It will oppose taxpayer funding, and expose government support, for any organisation that supports, directly or indirectly, a reduction in the age of consent.
Vanguard Party welcomes the appointment of Baroness Helena Kennedy QC to chair a working group to tackle misogynist abuse and consider whether there is a need for a new standalone offence, or whether “sex” should be added to the list of protected characteristics in the new Hate Crime Bill, following much criticism of its omission.
However, Vanguard Party believes that the Hate Crime Bill, dealing with offensive behaviour, is fundamentally misconceived. The government itself volunteered “the conduct in question would already constitute existing criminal offences such as breach of the peace or threatening or abusive behaviour”. It took six years for the equally misconceived Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Act 2012 to be recognised as bad law and revoked. The new law must be revoked asap.
