I have to admit, readers, I'm now living for the day Nicola Sturgeon has her Jo Swinson moment on trans ideology, when some Scottish hack finally summons the stones to say "So, First Minister... can you tell us what a woman is?"
"Your proposals say someone must live as a woman for three months. What does a woman live like, please? What are the definable qualities by which this requirement can be measured?"
Feel free to use these, by the way, Scottish journalists and broadcasters.
"You say people must make a solemn declaration to live in their chosen gender for the rest of their lives, on pain of a two-year jail sentence. Does this mean you'll arrest them if they change their minds later?"
"And if not, how many times will people be able to flip back and forth, making this solemn lifelong declaration each time?"
"You say transwomen criminals will be risk-assessed before being put in women's prisons, despite being legally just as female as any other woman. Does this mean dangerous biological women might also be held in men's prisons?"
"And if not, does that mean you're acknowledging that there's actually a hugely important distinction between transwomen and biological women after all?"
"Why is there NO provision anywhere in the draft bill for people to detransition? Are you proposing to trap people in the wrong gender forever if they realise they've made a mistake?"
"Does your risk assessment for prisoners also encompass biologically-male people being placed in women's hospital wards, for example?"
"How in practice could you ever determine if someone had made a false GRC application, even in the most extreme circumstances? If women can have penises, then women can be rapists. It does not follow that their GRC application was false."
I mean, this shit writes itself. Open goal after open goal. The bill has been drafted by incompetent idiots who've learned nothing from the OBFA and Named Person fiascos.
But ultimately it's worse than that. Because in the end there's no way you can draft this stuff sanely, because IT ISN'T FUCKING SANE TO SAY THAT MEN CAN BE WOMEN OR VICE VERSA.
"If sex is really 'assigned at birth' rather than observed, how come everyone is assigned as either male or female? How come nobody is ever assigned as Deliciagender or Oneirogender?"
