Public consultation on reviewing the Equality Act:…
Doesn't take long to complete.
Page 3.
Do you think the EA should be reviewed?
Answer: NO
If yes or maybe, please describe how you think the Equality Act 2010 can be improved.
Answer: Retain sex as a separate category. Make clear difference between gender reassignment & sex.
Could you provide any real-life case studies....
Answer: give examples of situations where single-sex spaces need to be defined by sex and where all males, notwithstanding PC gender reassignment and GRC should be excluded because of:
* the nature of the space/service
* the activities that take place within it
* the reasonable expectations of the women who use it
* should be defined by space/service not individual male

e.g. hospitals, prisons, school toilets, Girl Guides, @helenstaniland question

Been asked for receipts for report that Karen White intention to formally transition. Here we go:…
He refers to 'reassignment surgery' not GRC per se. Intention is specifically for force prison authorities to re-house him in female estate.
This can be achieved with GRC and NO reassignment surgery. Image
MoJ & HMPPS Policy Framework states that males with a GRC MUST be housed in female estate. (Scotland already works on basis of gender identity and self-ID).
Unlikely that a criminal like Karen will succeed? Double child rapist Martin Ponting managed it. As have others..

My TL:DR take on GEO Report:
1. The GRA is not changing appreciably. Whilst repeal should be ultimate aim focus on GRA and the changes that were announced risks losing sight of the real danger to women.
2. The Report made clear two things:
The lack of clarity around gender and specifically the conflation of sex and gender.
3. The Government interpretation of the EA exceptions & how these are to operate in practice. In particular the statement of how ‘proportionate means to a legitimate aim’ is to be assessed is of great concern.

Posie & 1 other arrested in Leeds.
@JackieDP @Baroness_Nichol

Police claimed breach of covid regs. Refused to allow this as POLITICAL protest. Refused to allow the group to split in subgroups of 6 or less. Or even as individuals. Because 'you are all here for the same purpose'.
This shows that breach of covid regs is not the issue.
@WestYorksPolice - we see you.

Saying something that someone is offended by is not an offence. Someone needs to read the ruling by Justice Julian Knowles in Miller.
@KonstantinKisin @triggerpod - seen this?
This guy needs to check that this has not been recorded as a non-crime hate incident against him.
@WeAreFairCop - at least one set of officer's numbers are visible. Care to follow this up?

1. If 'sex work REALLY is work' then the first thing they'd do is vigorously campaign for working conditions and workplace activities to be brought inline with other work where employees are brought into close contact with 'clients' naked bodies and bodily fluids.
2. For starters that's full PPE as used in healthcare where HCPs are at high risk of 'spatter' from fluids and excretia.
That should be the very first thing they campaign for. In any other workplace environment where employees were subjected to these risks there would be outrage
3. Luckily, NHS & similar have procedures in place for caring for/administering treatment where there is contact with bodily fluids. So it is easy to copy & easy to campaign for.

1. Those who are parroting 'sex work is work' from a comfortable position of believing that they will never be compelled or coerced into making that 'choice' need to be careful what they wish for.
2. If 'sex work is work' then those 'tasks' that are included within the remit of 'sex work' become legitimate work-based tasks that can be attached to any job description and can be asked of any employee.
3. Want to get a job as a PA? Job description now includes giving your boss blow jobs and hand relief.
