Fair Play For Women
by Fair Play For Women in London, Greater London, United Kingdom
It is absolutely vital to defend the long fought for, hard won, rights of women and girls, for separate safe spaces, correct health and crime data etc. and fair sports. To retain the right to use our names, "woman, women, girl, girls" and, among other things, to be able to use the long accepted names for parts of our bodies eg breast, womb, cervix, ovary etc. Otherwise, in a very short time, any acknowledgement of our existence as an embodied, female sex, will be removed.
Thank you for standing up for the legal definition of the female sex. You cannot self identify your chromosomes. Surely trans people must want their numbers accurately captured for purposes of funding for services allocation etc? And that can only be achieved by collecting both natal sex and gender identity in the data set. It makes no sense to collect inaccurate data because then your conclusions become meaningless. It becomes a pointless exercise and not scientifically accurate from a statistical point of view.
