Interesting thread, overview of issues with the GRA

“we should remind ourselves again and again what the implications of gender self-id, or even easy access to a GRC are, for women: we are legally obliterated as a sex class.”
“An approach seeking to improve the rights and visibility of trans people without erasing women’s progress would acknowledge this, go back to the drawing board and start with the assumption that trans women are *not* women.”
“the GRA of 2004 was intended to protect the rights of a few extremely dysphoric transsexuals. It is no longer fit for purpose as the explosion of gender identity politics could not have been foreseen. ”
(Some of us foresaw problems at the time though , if not before, and I think there were those who were instrumental in seting the GRA uo who knew where it was going and intended the havoc it has wrought:
“This whole reports prioritises and panders to male fantasy, along with complete disregard for the reality of female biology and the social consequences we live with because of that.
They buy into every lie that that the transgenderists have spun, including this little gem: “Trans people often face shocking abuse online. Ms Belcher gave us a dreadful example of a Tweet that encouraged trans people to kill themselves.”
And the relentless barrage of violent abuse and death threats that the trans activists send to women ? Hey that doesn’t count at all.
Nowhere in the whole report do they do anything other than make out that these poor men are being so victimised, another example is supposedly by their spouses when we know that the abuse in marriages and relationships where the man transitions is perpetrated by the men themselves.
They repeat the bullshit “suicide stats”, again without addressing the narcissism and other comorbid issues that these men have.
They take testimony from GIRES, Gendered Intelligence, Mermaids without any fact checking, they talk about non-binary, gender fuild and all the other buzz word phrases without any attempt to make sense of the contradictions.
The whole thing is a complete fucking mess, and it is women who will as ever bear the brunt of it …
… If this recommendation becomes law then any women’s safe space, any group of women saying “no” to men effectively becomes illegal.”
