The British Medical Journal has been accused of ‘abandoning science’ after it rejected research from top academics over their views on the trans debate. One researcher had his paper rejected because he was ‘opinionated’ and had tweeted in support of author JK Rowling’s gender-critical views. The other’s research was taken offline by BMJ staff who accused him of being ‘transphobic’ based on a student paper article about him. Both academics saw the discussions in BMJ staff emails after making Freedom of Information requests. Dr Michael Biggs, an Oxford University sociologist, was blacklisted over a paper saying the official number of transgender people in the UK – 262,000 – is unreliable because of a confusingly-worded census question.
