There was talk on this transgender thread about starting a list of references.

Hope no-one minds me starting one. Please feel free to add to it!

I'm still looking for a good link to dispute the pink/blue brain nonsense. Maybe @M0stlyBowlingHedgehog can add one with references to d values of 0.5.

I'll start with Gender Identity (Protected Characteristic) Bill 2016-17
services.parliament.uk/bills/2016-17/genderidentityprotectedcharacteristic.html

(Extract: Hayes assigned a rating of D2, no proven benefit and/or not safe, for pubertal suppression therapy in adolescents. This rating was based upon insufficient published evidence to assess safety and/or impact on health outcomes or patient management. A D2 rating is the lowest rating possible on that particular institution’s scale of safety and efficacy. The Hayes Technology Review is considered to be the industry standard in linking treatments with patient outcomes.)

(Comment: Fig. 4.2 shows rape/sexual assault on males fairly static from 2005-2011, but shows increases on females. Also shows that in 2011 only 0.9% of imprisoned sexual offenders are women (including any trans persons))

(Comment: The BPS statement on the whole was very supportive of transgender people and their rights, but this piece of evidence suggests that male sex offenders could well be over-represented in the trans community, and is a good argument against self-declaration without additional safeguards.)

Transsexualism typology
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blanchard%27s_transsexualism_typology
2 types of transwomen: homosexual transsexuals who seek sex reassignment surgery to romantically and sexually attract (ideally heterosexual) men, and "autogynephilic transsexuals" who purportedly are sexually aroused at the idea of having a female body.

Prisons in the UK

House of Commons Briefing Paper - Transgender Prisoners 10 Dec 2015
www.insidetime.org/download/research_&_reports/house_of_commons_briefings/HoC-Transgender-Prisoners-Dec15_07420.pdf
Policy guidelines for England and Wales state that prisoners should normally be located in the prison estate of their gender as recognised by UK law. For transgender prisoners, this will normally be the gender of their Gender Recognition Certificate (GRC).
In Scotland, policy guidelines state that the social gender in which the prisoner is living should be fully respected, regardless of whether or not they have a GRC. (Scottish Prison Service - Gender Identity and Gender Reassignment Policy for those in our Custody 2014

The intersex society saying they do not want to be used to endorse transgenderism. Insisting on it in fact. Quite useful to read on its own as it shows how they have been pressured by GIRES to do so.
