Response to UK TG Action Plan

An Action plan to address hate crimes against TG people has been released in the UK. This plan is deeply flawed as it has been written from a TG centric position. The plan prioritises hate crimes against TG over hate crimes against lesbians and hate crimes against women. This plan deepenes the oppression of lesbians and women as it creates anothe class of people who are more important rahter than equal.

It gives TG people all the rights of citizens and then extra rights. A TG man can argue that he should have any job over an equally or better qualified woman.

More to come.

  • I get spitting mad whenever I see this stuff. As far as I’m concerned, if you have the XY chromosome, you can never, ever be described as a “woman”. Culturally and in all other ways, the direct experience of XX women can not possibly be understood by someone raised as male and with all the attendant privileges that brings.

    In fact it p*is*es me off so much that I just don’t care how “unreasonable” or “prejudiced” I may sound to anyone else. This is just another means of disenfranchising and abusing women, as well as invading our spaces. It is beginning to feel more and more as if we will have nowhere safe to gather together. I speak as a female-born and raised feminist lesbian. Maybe I should add “radical” to that too!
