The Labour MP Rosie Duffield attended an unofficial event in Brighton last night and, according to the Times (paywall), she objected to suggestions she was a “dinosaur” because of her views on trans issues. She said:

It’s ridiculous and nothing about me is a dinosaur. I’m angry at colleagues chucking me on the railway tracks. I’m even more determined. I’m not a transphobe, I never have been and I never will be. I simply want to use the word women.

David Lammy, the shadow justice secretary who used the word “dinosaur” at a fringe meeting to describe people opposed to trans rights, told Times Radio: “I don’t recall ever calling my friend Rosie Duffield a dinosaur.”
