I am primarily concerned about safety of women in single sexed spaces e.g. Refuges, toilets. Secondly I am concerned about women’s sports. Women’s sports exist to provide a level playing field and allowing trans women with women to compete distorts this level playing field. It will have a negative impact on the careers and livelihoods of women athletes which is already underfunded and under resourced compared to mens sports.
I have talked with family and friends when the topic arises but not done anything practically.
I care because just today a trans women came out at work. However they won’t be dressing as a woman all the time as it “wouldn’t be practical in their job”. It has made me so unaccountably angry. Putting on femalehood like a costume and then taking it off when it isn’t practical.
An acknowledgement that women have it worse but doing nothing about it and just taking the “good” bits.
I am concerned about consequences at work if I was to be more vocal, particularly as my twitter account is mainly used for work, but not exclusively.
I would be fired
