The 2010 Equality Act protects people from discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
But the #GRA reforms proposed have NO IMPACT on this!
Allowing a trans girl her LEGAL RIGHT to use the facilities that align with her gender is not infringing on anyone else’s privacy and dignity.
I’d feel uncomfortable showering naked next to ANYBODY!
This is a problem with the policy and facilities, NOT equality law!
All lawyers should know this - even the ‘gender critical’ ones!
Again, this has nothing to do with #GRA reform!
Allowing trans people into the spaces with which they identify does not inherently impinge on privacy or dignity.
Personal choice to not want trans people near you is not upheld by law!
This has NOTHING to do with proposed #GRA reforms!
That a SMALL NUMBER of women keep conflating the rights afforded by the EA2010 with having a GRC, shows that they either don’t understand it, or are willfully misrepresenting it!
Perhaps Joan can explain how to foster good relations with people with the protected characteristic of gender reassignment after they have been positioned as someone to afraid of?
What does Joan recommend for those people with religious views that don’t like lesbians? Are lesbians going to be prevented from going to the toilet? Changing rooms? If not, how come some religious views are used to exclude and others not?
