Lies, Damn Lies & Gender Identity
BBC NEWS: A High Court judge has ruled that the ONS census guidance on the question of sex must be rewritten.
A few months ago it was revealed that the forthcoming national census will effectively allow people to record their chosen gender identity rather than their biological or legal sex, thus affecting vital data needed to protect women’s sex-based rights and spaces. This is due to the accompanying guidance notes allowing people to respond based on documents such as passports and driving licences, which do not record legal sex.
Campaign group, Fair Play For Women, launched a legal challenge over these ONS guidelines and the recording of sex-based data.
At the court hearing on Tuesday, Justice Swift gave the go-ahead for a judicial review and granted interim relief, ordering that the census guidance must be rewritten to list only the documents which reflect a respondent’s legal sex ie a birth certificate or gender recognition certificate.
Of course, the usual suspects were foaming at the mouth over this decision.
Pink News deemed that those concerned about accurate and legal data collation are ‘anti-trans’. Because facts are transphobic, apparently.
In other quarters, trans activists were not only suggesting that people will complete the census based on self-designated gender identity regardless of the requirements, but advocating that they should.
He is the co-chair of Green Party Women, Policy Officer for LGBTIQA+ Greens, Equality & Diversity Officer for the Bristol Green Party and a Green Party council candidate for Bristol’s Eastville ward.
Here is Bristow, tweeting from his ‘political’ account, that he is going to record his sex as ‘female’ on the census form.
Here he is again, this time from his personal account, stating very clearly that, despite not having a GRC (and, therefore, being legally male) he is going to record his sex as female. And he’s encouraging others to do the same.
He claims that falsely recording one’s legal sex doesn’t have legal implications.
Giving false information on a census form can result in a fine of up to £1000. I’m no lawyer but that sounds illegal to me.
Somebody who is a lawyer is Alex Sharpe, a professor at Warwick University’s School of Law and a vocal trans activist. (You may remember Sharpe from that sneering ‘trans vixens in the henhouse’ article in which he defended accommodating a convicted rapist in a women’s prison.)
Recording false data on a national census form is ‘appropriate’? Is that really sound legal advice, Alex?
Trans activist, Shon ‘enjoy your erasure’ Faye, also seems to be advocating that people ignore the requirements and complete the census however they choose.
Paris Lees doesn’t have a GRC which means that he is legally male.
Apparently this doesn’t stop him falsifying his legal sex on official documentation, including the national census form.
That’s Paris “I was catcalled, sexually objectified and treated like a piece of meat by men… and it was absolutely awesome ” Lees.
You may remember trans-identified male, Jane Fae, from his comments about domestic violence and the ‘boring, pedestrian’ murders of women.
Sounds rather like he’s advocating for self ID on the census. Just saying…
Helen Islan, the former marketing officer at dodgy Munchausen mum’s ‘charity’, Mermaids, set up a Twitter poll.
Only 15% of those answering this poll agreed they would complete the census accurately and in accordance with ONS guidelines ie record their legal sex based on the required documents. 234 people said they would lie.
It seems quite clear that even with something as important as the national census, trans activists intend to appropriate the female sex. They will ignore that being female is a characteristic enshrined in law, they will disregard women’s boundaries and they will trample all over women’s right to define and convene as an individual sex class.
In short, their validation is far more important.
And not so long ago, when these very people were schilling for self-ID legislation, they insisted over and over again that there is no way any trans person would ever complete a legal document with anything other than intentions of the utmost honesty and integrity and never ever would any trans person even dream of making false declarations about their gender identity.
