I care because I feel my identity and lived experience as a woman is being challenged, judged and altered without my consent and any attempt to raise this as a concern is attacked. This matters because important legal rights that protect me are being eroded – making space for everyone should not mean removing protection and disadvantaging others.
I have spoken to friends and interacted with people on social media.
I have been told to shut up because I don’t know or understand what I’m talking about. I have been told I am a TERF so therefore nothing I say is valid.
