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

Further categories to follow...

(Comment: look out for the 2 scenarios telling girls to shut up about having a boy in their changing room or playing on their sports team.)

Lupron: what’s the harm?
(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.)

Potential harm of pubertal suppression

Lesbian/gay adolescents more likely than heterosexual counterparts to have shown high levels of gender non-conforming behaviour in childhood
(Comment: because GNC traits are known to be common in l&g children, transitioning children is nothing less than permanent conversion therapy.)

An overview of sexual offending in England and Wales, 2013
(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))

Guidance on reporting transgender stories

Written evidence submitted by British Psychological Society to the Transgender Equality Inquiry
(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
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
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

Tara Hudson

Aaron Herschell is the first Scottish prisoner to attempt gender reassignment while awaiting trial for sex offences after being remanded as a man.
(Comment: Now released on bail, but was held at Polmont YOI, probably in the female wing since female officers raised concerns about conducting intimate searches.)

Scholarships, awards, etc.

Dr Rachael Padman took up one of the few science fellowships available at an all-women's college. Germaine Greer, who was then a fellow of the college, subsequently argued that since Padman was legally a man, her appointment contravened college statutes.

Someone should provide more references on the link between autism and transgender - it's been referenced many times, but i don't have any studies?

A 7-year-old boy removed from mother after mother & social workers insisted he was transgender and hated his penis. After living with father found to be happy and exhibiting no gender dysphoria.

Lise Eliot: The Myth of Pink and Blue Brains

Datun Tue 14-Mar-17 08:21:38

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.

Lalsy Tue 14-Mar-17 08:21:44

Great list, thank you so much, Betsy.

Here are a few things I keep going back to, especially when talking to well-meaning friends who are not used to being called bigoted:
