”Vi kräver att vården slutar experimentera med våra barn”
Vi är en växande grupp föräldrar med barn som i tonåren plötsligt uttrycker en stark känsla av att ha ”fel” kön. Vårdens ensidiga fokus på hormoner och kirurgi innebär att annat stöd prioriteras ned. Vi kräver omsorg och vård för våra barns lidande – inte en lång kö till kirurgiska och medicinska experiment, skriver Jannika Häggström med 16 andra föräldrar.

Sotto says no to trans women in women's restrooms
MANILA—Senate President Vicente Sotto III on Thursday said he is opposed to the idea of allowing transgender women in restrooms assigned to women. Sotto has become more vocal rejecting the idea after concerns were raised about the possible abuse that could take place in case this setup is allowed. “I now feel very strongly about it because it has turned from a transgender rights to a women’s rights [issue],” Sotto told reporters. “This is now an issue on women’s rights because I feel that a woman’s body is a temple and to her, the toilet is sacred. It’s where she has a weakest point. Kaya kung ikaw meron kang sandata, hindi ka dapat du’n nagsi-CR (If you have a penis, you should not use the women’s restroom). You go to the men’s room.” Sotto added some transgender women’s claim that they are vulnerable to assault in men’s restrooms is unfounded.

A gay critique of trans ideology
Gender identity ideology (Gender ID) is ripping through western society at full force, bringing out misogyny and homophobia from big sections of the so-called left. It’s in plain sight and is ugly as hell. Women’s and girls’ (human females) sex-based rights are being eroded to make way for the inclusion of males who “identify” as women in their spaces. Whether it’s women’s refuges, women’s prisons, changing and restrooms, or women’s sports, gender ID is having a profound effect on legislation that exists for the rights of the female sex-class to equal opportunity, as well as safeguarding.

Transgender MPs Are Over-Represented in Thai Parliament
As Thai women struggle to establish a foothold in the politics of a nation that ranks among the worst in the world for sex parity in government leadership, news outlets in the West are cheering on the progressiveness of men attaining political positions while wearing culturally feminine attire and the label “women” as their identity. “Earrings, neat make-up, Tanwarin, one of Thailand’s first two transsexual deputies, walks through the alleys of the Parliament dressed as a woman. A revolution in the kingdom,” LePetitJournal.com drools enthusiastically in an article announcing the entry of four transgender politicians – three of whom have not “been operated on” – into Parliament. The United Nations latest ranking of Women in Politics found Thailand at place 181 of 192 nations, among the worst. While Thailand’s population is 51 percent female, World Bank data shows that women currently comprise just five percent of seats in the nation’s Parliament.

Next Scottish census in 2021 will stick with binary sex question
The next Scottish census in 2021 will stick with a male/female sex question, after the body responsible backtracked on its controversial proposal to include a third option. The decision by National Records of Scotland to maintain a binary formulation was confirmed for the Scottish government by Fiona Hyslop, the minister for culture, tourism and external affairs. Holyrood must now vote on the proposal, but this is considered a formality. The Equality Network, which campaigns for LGBT rights in Scotland, had argued for a third option to the sex question, ideally offering a write-in box for individuals to define themselves using the terminology they prefer.

What is a Woman and Who Gets to Tell Her-Story?
What is a Woman and Who Gets to Tell Her-Story? Censorship, Dissention & Disruption at the People’s History Museum. Manchester People’s History museum attracted a rather more raucous crowd than its usual weekend visitors on Saturday afternoon, as two groups of protestors set up outside its entrance, complete with megaphones, banners, signs and flyers. On the side on which I stood, around a dozen other women, young and old, gathered with me, dressed in T-shirts bearing the messages, ‘Women Will Not Submit,’ and ‘Woman: Adult Human Female’ under suffragette style sashes. Our banner and signs proclaimed, ‘Women’s Rights Matter,’ ‘Manchester People’s History Museum Censors Women,’ and ‘Manchester People’s History Museum: Stop Erasing Women’s History!’

Biology trumps gender identity, says IAAF
Athletics' governing body said "biology has to trump gender identity" after welcoming the decision to permit restrictions in testosterone levels of female runners. Double Olympic champion Caster Semenya twice appealed against the new International Association of Athletics Federations rule that prevents her from running the 800m without medication. A Swiss court suspended the ruling which has now been lifted, though Semenya said she will not defend her 800m world title this year. The IAAF said competitors now have "parity and clarity" before the championships in Doha, which begin on 28 September. The ruling, which took effect on 8 May 2019, means those with differences of sexual development (DSD) must either take testosterone-reducing medication in order to compete in track events from 400m to the mile or change to another distance.

Men who identify as women may fill the 14.29% Bangladeshi parliament seats reserved for women
The Bangladesh parliament is comprised of 350 seats. Of these seats, 50 have been reserved for women since 2010, in an attempt to increase the representation of women in politics. In December 2018, Bangladesh’s parliament saw the highest number of women to be directly elected to the Lower House – though skepticism remained about the level of influence female members of parliament would actually have in a nation with staunchly patriarchal values. Less than two months after an election result that women greeted with cautious optimism, it has been announced that biologically male transgender-identified people will be permitted to take seats allotted to women.
