"Manche Männer haben eine Vulva/manche Frauen haben einen Penis/TERFs haben keine Zähne" sagt ein "feministisches" Kollektiv aus Hamburg. Frauenhass und Gewaltandrohungen gegen Frauen..die #sexmatters sagen…sind bei den Linken mittlerweile gesellschaftsfähig 🤮 #TransEXTREMISMUS

🧵Yesterday another man appeared in court charged with threatening me on account of my belief that #SexMatters. I want to be very clear that every time someone in a position of power wrongly describes feminists or LGB people like me as transphobic simply 1/4
because we don’t share their belief in gender identity theory they risk inciting the sort of abuse & threats that I and others suffer from self styled “Trans rights activists” who in truth are nothing of the sort. 2/4
Instead, they are just good old fashioned misogynists & lesbophobes who are being encouraged & enabled by those who ought to know better. I don’t think enough attention is being paid to this problem. It needs to be called out by 3/4

We are hopeful that the discussion on issues around sex and gender is opening up. Such discussion is essential if we are to find solutions that meet the needs, and uphold the rights, of everyone.

Since November 2017, Woman’s Place UK has organised 30 public events and nearly every one has been hosted in the face of substantial obstacles including aggressive and intimidating protests.…
The intimidation of women meeting to discuss their rights has gone largely unchallenged and so has been allowed to grow. The failure of civic and political society to facilitate this important debate demonstrates an abject failure to adhere to the Equality Act and the PSED. /3

This is why I am an ex Union member. I won’t support the eradication of women’s, sex based, rights and the sterilisation of gay and autistic kids. What a sad day for women who used to support Unions.

🧵Today the Equalities, Human Rights and Civil Justice committee will hear evidence about how data will be affected by self-ID. Or will they?
As @EHRC wrote earlier this year to @ShonaRobison the collection and use of data is one are where they have very real concerns
But only two witnesses have been called to give evidence on data. Paul Lowe, head of National Records of Scotland, the man who has just delivered the worst census returns in living memory

Like @LoobyLouDino I am a traditionally published author who is now forced to be anonymous for sadly familiar reasons. I am a feminist and that has made me increasingly gender critical. I want to speak out but my industry throws GC under buses.
Over the last few years I watched the witch hunts. I have seen careers ruined and people hunted for no more than calling for a debate and allowing dissent. People like @RooneyRachel who simply wrote a book celebrating childhood.
Or @Gillian_Philip who simply put her opinion in her bio or @AmandaPCraig who called for a debate but was cancelled as a judge for *safety* reasons from a women's writing magazine who wanted to have a Transwoman poet on the panel as well.

I have no further patience or sympathy for securely employed, comfortable academics who are sitting back and saying nothing while dogma takes over humanities. I’m a PhD student. I have no job security whatsoever. If I can speak up, so can you.

There are scared early career women in your fields and in your departments. If you do nothing else, find them and support them. They need you.
This is not something you can sit out. Our jobs are to understand what is going on in society. What is going on in the UK is that two women a week are killed by men. Rape is effectively decriminalised. Women do three quarters of the unpaid labour. And you are presiding over an

The other day, I was asking my grandmother about her childhood. That got me thinking - what will MY future grandchildren say when I tell them about my childhood? Thread about how I imagine this will go:

#SexMatters #SexNotGender #LetWomenSpeak #RespectMySex

Future Grandchild (FG): What was life like when you were young?

Me: Well… misogyny was celebrated, stereotypes encouraged & healthy kids embarked on lifelong medical nightmares.

FG: What? Did that actually happen?

Me: Oh, believe me, it did.

#WomenWontWheest #misogyny

FG: How?

Me: There were these men who wore dresses, liked pink and did other stereotypical feminine things. They decided they were ACTUALLY women.

FG: You’re joking!

Me: I’m not!

Over the last few years, along with the TWAW chant, trans rights extremists have said some pretty ridiculous things! Here are some of the craziest:

#TransCult #TransActivismIsMisogyny #TranswomenAreMen #TransmenAreWomen
“Gender neutral toilets are fine. We all have them in our own homes!”
I mean, who amongst us hasn’t encountered an unknown male in our private toilet?! What a winning argument! (And they still make it. All. The. Time.🤦‍♀️)

#SexMatters #SingleSexSpaces #SexNotGender
“Nobody can tell a transwoman from a biological woman.”
Nope. Far too difficult. There is absolutely no way that I can spot the TIM here!

Has anyone ever heard of the song “One Man and his Dog 🐶, Went to Mow a Meadow”? Ever since some revelations today 👀, it’s been reverberating around my brain. And now, for your delectation, I share my new version.

One man and his dog, went to answer questions.🎶

1/6 My school is fully captured by the #TransCult. As I’m able to differentiate fact from fiction, I often find myself standing alone against the madness.

2/6 My classmates AND the teachers try to intimidate me but I refuse to be silenced. I take every chance I can to stand against the gender insanity. Case in point? A recent reading survey.

#IStandWithJKRowling #IStandWithAllisonBailey #RespectMySex
3/6 I was given a form to fill out about books & authors.

First question: “Who is your favourite author?”

Of course I put @jk_rowling not just because of her books (outstanding as they are!) but because of her amazing work standing up for the rights of women & girls.

A short thread🧵 on why #NoToSelfID is important right now. @scotgov want to reform the Gender Recognition Act #GRA & remove the need for a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria. To a process where people can self declare the gender they wish to live as This is Self ID /1
Self-ID allows individuals to declare themselves to be something they are not. They use the word ‘gender’, which is not adequately defined for individuals to declare whether they are a man or a woman and a boy or a girl /2
Implications for women & girls are:

👉Self ID allows any man to say he's a woman & be treated on a female hospital ward

👉Self ID allows any man to say he's a woman & play in women's sports

👉Self ID allows any man to say he's a woman & enter a rape crisis centre

1/10 In school, there is one genderwoo-obsessed handmaiden who claims to be a lesbian. (Note that word “claims” - that bit is important.)

#SexMatters #SexNotGender #SexIsReal #WhatIsAWoman #AdultHumanFemale
2/10 Last week she insisted on asking me about my “transphobic” views. I asked her how she, as a lesbian, could support a cult that seeks to erase both women AND same-sex attraction?

#SexNotGender #BiologyIsNotBigotry #TransCult #LGBDropTheT #SexMatters #SexIsImmutable
3/10 She told me that TRAs do nothing of the sort. I pointed out that women are being kicked off lesbian dating sites, for saying they won’t date men. Which OF COURSE they won’t. These women are lesbians i.e. exclusively same-SEX attracted females.

The Scottish government @scotgov is proceeding with Gender Recognition Act Reform Bill.
They are seeking public views up to the 16 May…

It is important that we have our say as decisions in Scotland will affect the UK & NI. /2
Over the coming days, alongside the consultation, we have a series of questions & comments in graphics to use to highlight to our politicians that this needs to be addressed. /3

1/9 🚨 Latest Update from my “Inclusive” School:

This week in SPHE (social, personal and health education) we were discussing puberty and how our bodies develop in adolescence.

#SexMatters #SexNotGender #WeWillBeHeard #IStandWithMaya #IStandWithAllisonBailey #NoThankYou
2/9 The teacher taking the class has been trying to make my life rather difficult since I started asking questions and raising the issue of women’s rights. I suspect he is a men’s rights activist and quite possibly a misogynist too.

#WomensRightsAreHumanRights #SexMatters
3/9 Anyway, during this class he asked, “Can you tell me something that boys have, that girls don’t, that grows in puberty?” “Penises!” yelled a classmate.

1/10 Recently a teacher told my class that a baby can be “assigned” the wrong sex at birth… and that is how a man can “actually” be a woman. I rolled my eyes so much it’s a wonder they didn’t roll right out of my head! #SexIsObserved #SexMatters #SexIsReal #SexNotGender
2/10 I said, “No. Sex is observed and recorded, not assigned. If you have a penis you are a male.” It was at this point that a fellow student chipped in. #BiologyIsNotBigotry #Biology #WomenWontWheest #WeWillBeHeard #SexMatters #SexNotGender #SexIsImmutable
3/10 “Being trans is like being told you're right-handed all your life then realising you're actually left-handed,” she said. #NoThankYou #WhatIsAWoman #AdultHumanFemale #KPSS #BiologyIsNotBigotry

1/11 Recently my entire school was given a form to fill out. It was all about preferred pronouns and inclusive language. 🙄 We’d already had a class where we spoke about “inclusive language” so I knew what they WANTED me to put. #SexMatters #SexNotGender #Biology
2/11 The first question was, “Would you ever use the phrase “hi guys”?” Seriously?!? They're trying to get you to say no because a TIM might take offence even though in Ireland we often use the word guy for boys AND girls. #WomensRightsAreHumanRights #SexIsReal #Biology
3/11 The next one, “What pronouns are YOU comfortable with when being addressed by someone else? He/She/They/One/Other.” What the hell? Who ADDRESSES someone using he or she?

The new @EHRC guidance on separate and single-sex services is out!
We think it is a positive and welcome step in the right direction. Thank you @EHRCChair and @Marcial_Boo

1) It clarifies that “sex” (as understood in the Equality Act 2010) is binary, and that a person’s legal sex is their biological sex as recorded on their birth certificate.
2) It says that a gender recognition certificate is not relevant to decision-making about access to single-sex services.

Yes it is really true! @UCU are ready to vote on whether to harass members for their legally protected beliefs (that there are two sexes and sexism is a problem) #WORIAD Any UCU member thinking of legal action for belief discrimination has just been provided with strong evidence.
@ucu In case the legal team remove it, here is EQ7
And similarly B13, ordered onto the agenda for UCUCongress2022. Both motions propose campaigning against feminists who think #SexMatters smeared in the text as 'transphobes'. #Solidarity to those targeted @CEFA_Women @OU_GCN @LabWomenDec @UCLwomenslib @WomensTUF @legalfeminist

If you're a woman but you don't feel like a woman 'on the inside', you've resisted the pressure to internalise patriarchal gender norms.

If you're a man but you feel like a woman 'on the inside', you've internalised and eroticised patriarchal gender norms.

I've tuned into the webinar from @MerchedCymru, @LGBAllies_Cymru and @WomensRightsNet on #RSE #RSEWales

Scene being set... Huge challenges with sexual harassment in schools as per @EstynHMI report and @WelshGovernment's RSE code fails to tackle these.
Stephanie Davies Arai @cwknews speaking first.
Children being exposed to porn and gender identity ideology online and in life.
Link being made between toxic messages girls receiving and deciding to opt-out of becoming women.
Change of language has happened. GIRES presenting gender identity as innate.
Now looking at resources for teens eg. Gender Identity Workbook for Teens, 'Gender Quest' Workbook, all encouraging kids to interpret their lives through gender lens (likes, hobbies etc).
Good grief.

This is the WPUK written submission to the review of NHS mixed sex accomodation.

Representatives of WPUK also attended a meeting with other stakeholders which we were invited to at very short notice.… /1 #NHS #SexMatters
As well as outlining concerns about any move away from single-sex provision, we raised concerns about the process of consultation and engagement with women stakeholders and organisations. /2
Providing single sex accommodation is provided for by the Equality Act 2010 and is cited as an example of a legitimate use of the exceptions in the Act.… /3

I clicked on Katy Montgomerie’s latest blog post so you don’t have to..
Great start!
Gender critical beliefs are summarised correctly (and without the customary hyperbole of discerning genocidal tendencies)
A) Sex exists, it’s binary and humans can’t change sex
B) Sometimes sex matters and single or separate sex spaces, sports & services are needed
And yes, you’re right Monty, if sex didn’t matter it would be quite beside the point whether it’s binary, immutable etc.
