Fears of transgender people are a distraction from the real problems all face women

In recent weeks my DM were flooded with messages of good friends intentions, many wonder just what was on their transphobic published essay by JK Rowling “TERF wars.” (Summary :. Much) “TERF Wars” was, coincidentally, the title of a chapter in my memoirs, gender games. I wonder if she’s read it? Your piece contained nothing that you will not find in general critical forum ‘and op-eds: that of transsexuals freedoms on which cisgender strike (non-trans) women. Rowling also trans-affirming reparative health, and suggested the following tweets, than young men trans lesbians are just confused. In all this we are to understand that Rowling is not transphobic, but fear. Words of Rowling should promptly dropped along with a government review of the U.K. Regulation, which legally transgender allowed their gender on their birth certificate to be changed. The Gender Recognition Act 2004 was – at the time – progressive, but since then, many countries, including Ireland, Argentina and parts surpassed the United States of America. A Gender Recognition Certificate in U.K. to obtain a trans person requires two medical specialists to diagnose with gender dysphoria and a mountain of bills to prove ‘, it does not change its identity over a period of two years. The majority of trans people in the U.K. just do not care. The Gender Recognition Act has never had anything to do with public toilets, changing rooms or shelters, but. Trans people can these spaces-with some exceptions-in Access Equality Act 2010. If the government of these spaces obstruct trans people, they would return the rights, implement already own. Let’s be clear: there is no evidence that the crime attacks leading trans-inclusive laws of an increase, stalking or harassment in single-sex rooms. In 2018, peer-reviewed journal Sexuality Research and Social Policy concluded that “have the fear of an increase in security breaches and privacy because of laws against discrimination is not empirical.” If you are generous, I realize that fear is real if completely unfounded – but it takes a lot of that generosity to do my part. After my last appearance in the drama of BBC / HBO destroy, Twitter users have criticized my voice, hands and cosmetic surgery performed; There Mumsnet forum looked at my genitals and call me a pedophile. I usually only transphobic suspect that trans people are weird and funny looking, but they chose their fanaticism into a fear of the unknown to bed. live in a patriarchy is always fear for all women. One in four women in the U.K. It is a victim of domestic violence in their lives, and two women a week are killed by a partner or ex-partner. What woman would not be afraid? Trans women at risk: 16% of trans women had experienced domestic violence in the past year compared with 7.5% of cisgender women. (Trans. Prisoners are ten times more frequently victims of sexual violence than the general population of the prison) was a victim in 2017, but even if you do not know personally, I would say, we have all seen – grow, or our friendship group. We also know help is not coming. Domestic violence is and are reported by the violence are the least likely in 2019 for police referrals to the prosecutor’s office dropped by 11%. In his essay Rowling has revealed that she is a survivor of domestic violence and was in his next breath, she described to share in a hypothetical woman trans abstract discomfort to a shelter. Because? She was attacked by a man familiar cisgender, since the vast majority of victims of domestic violence. Worldwide, most women are able to know their rapist at the time of the attack. It cools your friend, friend, husband of thinking, or a member of male family is the bogeyman. Easier, perhaps, leveling your fears in a small minority. A scapegoat. (It’s even easier if, as the Netflix Disclosure Documentary, Hollywood and the wider context of cross-dressing serial killer average. Produced for years) We must continue to walk together on the theoretical or philosophical debate “on this ghost hazard. United Kingdom, Rowling Tweets won more attention to beat the average compared to the real case of Kasabian Tom Meighan frontman, who was captured on CCTV his ex-girlfriend, and went with service to the community free of judgment. While speaks endlessly, cisgender men are getting away with violence. Instead, we must focus on surviving – the British government has recently introduced a new bill domestic violence (and emergency aid for a while ‘domestic violence and sexual abuse charity between the pandemic crown included), but previous austerity measures have affected many shelters and the Frontline nstleistungen. Some women have to be rich to apply for legal aid is controlled by the partners, despite their finances. Like a broken record, there will be transphobic readers who respond only to say here, “but the Trans women are men I think I’m unlikely heart or change the mind -. But we know it’s not that you should be afraid of us. We scare.
