I care about the physical safety and dignity of women and girls and I think this is jeopardised by self ID and I think it is wrong that we are being asked to take this risk to appease trans women. Single sex spaces should be preserved.
I care about fairness for women in all fields and consider that women and girls face a loss of opportunity in sports and perhaps at work and in education if their places are being taken by males who identify as women.
I am worried that health issues arising from biological sex ie pregnancy and birth, ante and post natal depression, menopause etc may be impacted when male bodied people identifying as women access services designed for females. I believe women are being bullied and silenced, and asked to “be kind” at best. This is unfair. It is important that we are allowed to defend our sex-based rights. Without a recognition of our biology we may lose these rights which is what concerns me most of all.
At the moment not a great deal but I have talked to family and friends and I have started to make my views known on social media. It feels dangerous.
I have been criticized in twitter. A follower of mine whose son is a trans man said something very unpleasant about how I should worry that my husband was raping my daughters if I was so concerned about sharing bathrooms with men.
