Trans rights in "Female only spaces"



BBC

We have some pupils who are transitioning at work and will complete the process after they leave school should they wish to. They have access to different toilets and changing areas and Guidance staff check in with them on a regular basis.

The law in England and Wales might be changing to allow people to call themselves whichever gender they like without the need for the person having had the medical route. This is out for consultation.

Some women are extremely concerned about this. Vulnerable women, naked in changing rooms or at rape crisis centres are cited as some potential exceptions along with women's prisons etc.


As it currently stands:


Quote:

It can take more than five years for trans men and women in England and Wales to legally change their gender under the current system
To change gender in the eyes of the law, individuals have to apply for a certificate under the 2004 Gender Recognition Act
They must be aged 18 or older and must live for two years in their preferred gender
They need to have a diagnosis of gender dysphoria from a psychiatrist - a condition where a person experiences distress because of a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity
Once someone has this diagnosis, they can apply to a gender recognition panel - a legal tribunal which will look at the evidence submitted before deciding whether to issue a certificate
People can change the gender on documentation including passports and driving licences without a gender recognition certificate




Quote:

"'Women are oppressed on the basis of their biological sex, not their gender identity," she added. "There has to be a place for the female sex as a distinct group."

I think it's fine.
There will always be "predatory males/females" transgender or not.
