- On Tuesday, trans activists stormed into a talk at McGill University led by McGill alumnus Prof. Robert Wintemute. The talk, called “Sex vs. Gender (Identity) Debate In the United Kingdom and the Divorce of LGB from T,” was cancelled after protesters entered the venue and threw baking flour at Wintemute and unplugged a projector he used for the event. Wintemute told CTV News that Canadian universities should be shocked by the protest, which he called “extremely anti-democratic.”

He made an appointment by phone, giving a female name, according to the salon owner, Isabel Martins da Silva, then when he arrived for his appointment, was brought to a private room to await the female esthetician, who, after entering the room, came back to reception, saying the client was a man in his underwear, with full male genitalia (testicles and penis) and an erection.
