Thread with links on the trans issue?

I was just wondering if we could have a thread which consolidated all of the useful links on the trans debate - like the thread for people in emotionally abusive relationships which has loads of useful resources in the first post of every new thread?

Good idea. Should we post the links in this thread?

Is that not what the general trans thread is for?

Okay, so to start, there's no such thing as a 'female' brain, also defines what biological sex is:

And here's that reported recently in New Scientist:

Also by Joel, non trans people have gender fluidity/variance/dysphoria.

Thanks! I meant to come back and start the ball rolling but I got sidetracked somehow. I'll try and add some later tonight though!

The general trans thread is where I came across most of the great links that started me off down this rabbit hole of education but I was looking to create a more condensed resource where the links weren't nestled amongst so much chat. Or have other people create it for me. And add more links as we find them.

Here's the one about the British Association of Gender Identity Specialists warning people about transwoman sex offenders

gendertrender.wordpress.com/2015/09/13/gender-identity-specialists-warn-of-ever-increasing-tide-of-transwoman-sex-offenders/

And the gender apostates site with blog posts by various gender critical writers

genderapostates.com/

Terfisaslur which documents trans threats and intimidation directed at women who are gender critical.

And thenewbacklash which sets out the theory that "Transgender identity politics are about men weaponizing the suffering of transsexual people in order to destroy women's boundaries and undermine basic feminist analysis."

This site is great for research sexnotgender.com

See, this is where editing posts could be useful. Then the OP could simply update her original post with all the links.

Here's a link to the research paper I think Daphna Joel's talk is based on:

The Morning Star feminism section is consistently gender critical.

Being politically collectivist, they don't buy into individualistic neo-liberal consumerist versions of identity.
