I care because I’m a woman who sees women’s rights being eroded due to this irrational unscientific belief the only definition of womanhood is ‘someone who identifies as a woman’. It’s ludicrous. Furthermore, as a new mum I want my child to grow up expressing himself however he likes, pursuing the interests and hobbies which fulfil him, without feeling that because he may like something stereotypically ‘feminine’ then he has been ‘born in the wrong body’.
I have commented anonymously on articles and social media posts online, posted on forums, and emailed my local authority regarding their removal of ‘sex’ as a protected characteristic on their website.
I have received backlash online.
