Thread: 1/ Dear @thesundaytimes @RFord4. There is an error in this article published today.

"The 60-year-old, known only as KK for legal reasons, had sought reassignment surgery after she *transitioned from male to female* while in jail"…
@thesundaytimes @RFord4 2/ The prisoner in question "identifies as a woman". It is inaccurate and misleading to say the prisoner has "transitioned from male to female". The words male and female have a very specific meaning related to someones sex. The two phrases are not interchangeable.
@thesundaytimes @RFord4 3/ Sex is commonly regarded as a biological term. There is also a legal meaning. It is possible to legally transition from one legal sex category to the other. Self identifying as a woman does not change someones legal sex status.
@thesundaytimes @RFord4 4/ Could you please edit the second paragraph to say "The 60-year-old, known only as KK for legal reasons, had sought reassignment surgery after she *identified as a woman* while in jail.
@thesundaytimes @RFord4 5/ No matter what side of the 'debate' we are on I hope everyone agrees that accurate and meaningful language is going to be essential going forward. The conflation of sex and gender identity is at the centre of every argument.
@thesundaytimes @RFord4 6/ This is particular important and relevant after the #MayaForstater court case.

Here is a handy media guide on terminology and context that I hope you find useful.

Thank you.
