Hi, this is my first Mumsnet thread (yey!), I'm not 100% sure it's okay to do this so if not please let me know (!); basically I have written up a blog post to try to help people respond to the current consultation in Scotland on the GRA, and also to help people throughout the UK make the feminist case and outline the kinds of things we can fight for if self ID is to go through, as it looks to be in Scotland.
It is far too long to post here in full, so I wanted to post the link, and this is what I wasn't sure about, so again please just let me know if this isn't okay.
They are twisting themselves into pretzels trying to support the first big lie. That people can change sex. We cannot metamorphosis nor transmogrify, nor can we transubstantiate, into the other sex. Can you mandate belief? Can you codify into law the idea that some people can mind over matter themselves out of material reality and into the opposite sex and must be treated accordingly? It is like transubstantiation. A belief that no one actually believes. Will you allow people to drug and mutilate children based on this belief that no one believes?
