Scottish Bill confirms “Transwomen ARE Women”

The Scottish Govts newly passed gender bill, the Gender Representation on Public Boards (Scot) Bill, has redefined the language used in the GRA. A person is no longer reassigned a gender. This legislation now defines it as ‘becoming female’.


Scottish Prison Service Policy written by Trans Lobby group

There was an article in The Times Scotland about ‘Women are being put in danger because Scottish prison chiefs allow male-bodied transgender inmates to live in female-only areas of jails, campaigners have warned’ which stated –

“Scottish Trans Alliance did not respond to a request for comment last night. However the org has previously defended the SPS policy”


Glasgow Life

Changing room policy in Glasgow’s Culture & Sport venues, trans people can

“use changing rooms of their chosen gender – no matter if they look as if they are of the opposite sex”

Wrong interpretation of the law leads to cries of ‘rolling back trans rights’ when women speak out.


Scottish Womens Aid Guidance for supporting Transwomen

I think the reference to the Scottish Womens Aid guidance is this one here. It contains details about trans inclusion, the Equality Act’s general occupational requirement and a policy definition of Gender Based Violence that differs from the CEDAW defintion.
