It's transparently meant to avoid a repeat of last year's controversy over Queers Against Israeli Apartheid but the implications go far beyond that. Everyone's message will now need to be pre-approved with no clue as to what the criteria are.

Wonderful - and incredible, because it's so very dangerous!
Even as Uganda’s parliament considers the Anti-Homosexuality Bill — which calls for the death penalty for some gay acts — a group of about 100 Ugandan gays and lesbians held a secret meeting to determine how to stand up for their rights.
Do we not have a forum for LGBTI people? Well hey, here it is. Yet so far we've had two, a grand total of two, trans-gendered people and not one protected space. Not one!
So, why exactly add Trans people in if some people here a) don't get it and don't want to get it and b) are not criticized enough for their disgusting behaviour? and c) get away with tearing down a person's IDENTITY!!!
Is this what any other trans person can expect from Babble? I'd love to know, because despite the moderating maysie did in the two threads started by trans people, we still ended up isolating, silencing and not allowing for a SAFE SPACE!
