I’ve been documenting my own takes on the Self-ID Trans-activism story for 6 or 7 years now – last summarised here with many footnotes added.
Like prof Alice Dreger, doctor Sarah Rutherford has been a professionally engaged researcher for much longer. She’s done the research and recently published a historical deep dive into how the current (2020) reform to the (2004) Gender Recognition Act got to be the mess it is.
Exemplary piece on this twisted topic. “how interconnected academic theory, trans activism, law and policy really are… the ideology that gender identity has priority over biological sex”. https://t.co/kCmneG3UAh

Dr Rutherfordâs piece is very good. Odd to think that Norman Tebbit becomes the hero of the day here, but thatâs the genius of having different minds involved in pre-legislative scrutiny.
Theres an interesting consideration in this article about whether politesse and good intentions over this issue will lead us into a swamp. If they have not already.
Yes, who’d a thought the Chingford Skinhead could be a modern day hero?
Interesting piece. The BBC is screwed by its own political correctness. It’s very sad.
