With his calls to various brands to have “TERFs” blackballed from Threads, Shane Lol now claims that 84% of New Zealanders believe that transgender people should be protected from discrimination.
While I agree, nobody should face discrimination, this doesn’t mean that they get to impose on the rights of others. And, it’s a bit of a stretch.
As usual with Shaneel (like when he claimed people boycotted Kiwibank for giving him the Young New Zealander of the Year award “because I’m trans”, when it was actually because he’s a horrible person), this is a lie.
The study that he references is the LGBT+ Pride 2023 survey from IPSOS.
It surveyed 1000 people, and was opt-in (so, it was a survey of people who were on a site that is devoted to LGBT+, and who wanted to complete the survey), so there’s no way it can be used to say what Lal is saying.
“84% of the 1,000 people who completed the LGBT+ Pride 2023 survey from IPSOS” might believe that.
