I decided to do this thread to explain why I think repealing the GRA is the only logical solution to the current women’s rights versus trans rights conundrum. Whenever this issue arises, it usually spirals into either ‘not all trans’ or ‘it’s impossible, so let’s not talk about it.’ Here’s why I think we should […]Read More A GUEST POSTER WRITES: WHY I WANT TO #REPEALTHEGRA
Non-fiction Paperback, £11.99 With a name that conjures ghosts of the first-wave past, retired medical doctor and women’s rights activist Isidora Sanger informs us that this essay collection is “a record of an ignoble moment in history that should not be swept under the carpet and forgotten.” There could be no finer commentator. Ever since […]Read More review: born in the right body by isidora sanger
As of November 2022, there are three women’s rights petitions in circulation calling upon Parliament to debate biological sex and “gender” in law, and change legislation. (1) “We call upon the Government to repeal the Gender Recognition Act 2004. The Act makes it impossible in practice to keep biological men – who are statistically responsible […]Read More Petitioning parliament to #repealthegra
The NHS interim service specification public consultation ends on December 4th. I call upon anyone with kids, or who cares about kids, to respond in a manner that calls into question the role of gender identity ideology in evidence-based healthcare. If you have experience of “gender identity” services, as a service user or parent, or if you […]Read More An NHS consultation response
Prompted by a Canadian street activist “Billboard Chris” pinning on feminists the blame for transgender ideology, and attendant harms to children, I wanted to write something short about ‘gender’ to help bust a myth, in the hope that it will not take root and lead to misdirected retribution against feminists women. I also want to […]Read More On ‘gender’: put blame on mame, or was eve framed?
Yesterday, counsel for For Women Scotland submitted to the court two technical—but important—truths related to ongoing legal attempts to reconcile women’s rights and ‘trans rights’: To date, activists, politicians and lawyers have worked together to create concepts whose conclusions are so patently absurd (e.g. it is lawful to incarcerate male prisoners—even those without a GRC—in […]Read More On mission creep
Having written a piece skimming over the main arguments in favour of retaining the GRA 2004, I note that some gender criticals who favour retention of the Act continue to cite the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) case of Goodwin v United Kingdom 2002 as an impassable obstacle to repeal. I consider this to […]Read More on the ghost of goodwin
I wanted to respond to the latest round of UK socialist feminists going out of their way to make independent feminists less safe in their public consciousness-raising efforts. I’m telling a story from below here, as I understand it. As always, I welcome corrections if I’ve got anything wrong, and if any readers care to […]Read More on women’s safety & letting women speak
Next, I thought it would be worth summarising the headline points arising from a few years’ worth of discussion around GRA repeal. Can we start calling it what it actually is – the Sex Secrecy Act? After all, far from gatekeeping “transition,” that legislation actually enables self-ID. It lets any man, for any reason, access […]Read More A serious proposal to the ladies & gentlemen: the nitty gritty of gra repeal aka the sex secrecy act
I’m glad to say, for this my first post since the end of 2021, that a sliver of space has finally opened up (thanks, in no small measure, to the fracas over socialist “GC lite” once again attempting to smear sex realists as “far right/fascist”) to discuss a subject which cannot be avoided. No time […]Read More On gra repeal: a matter of principle?
