Every Wednesday, this newsletter presents a roundup of the best gender critical news and content we have found in the last week, including action items such as petitions and opportunities for public comment on pending legislation.
- TOP STORY: Marcus Evans, the former head of the Tavistock Gender Identity Service (GIDS) in the UK, has published a new paper through Cambridge University Press that peels the politicized paint right off of the “affirmation only” approach to pediatric gender dysphoria
- Dr. Em points to the moment that feminism split over transgender inclusion in 1972 and you will not be surprised to find out that the man at issue turned out to be no ally to women
- Sanity prevails: the global rules-making authority for rugby has decided that men should not share the field with women due to “significant safety concerns that have emerged following recent research“
- Dr. Jane Claire Jones has had quite enough of the quasi-religious assumption “that trans-ness negates maleness“
- Gender Report, a Canadian website, is organizing a letter-writing campaign to the BBC, New York Times, and the Guardian calling on these news outlets to offer more objective reporting on transgenderism. This is a fantastic idea. However, their sample letter is far too long. An effective letter to the editor is no more than 250 words, and preferably written below tenth grade reading level
The last complete week in July is #ROGDWeek🛡️when we seek to raise the awareness of the massive increase in young people believing they are transgender.
Two years ago Lisa Littman wrote a paper on this phenomenon demanding more research.
Where is it?

- UK blog Legal Feminist argues that “women who are compelled to declare female pronouns in their signatures may be vulnerable to stereotype threat and also to unconscious bias on the part of the recipient of the email, thereby entrenching those biases further;” the British Modern Law Review has published a response by Alexandra Asteriti and Rebecca Bull to Alex Sharpe’s essay denying the harms of “Self-ID” to women’s sex-based rights
- Jennifer Bilek is always focused on the transhumanists using transgenderism as their leading edge for a post-human kind of capitalism
- The Federal Executive Commission of the Spanish Socialist Party has issued a statement supporting sex-based human rights. We are still waiting for someone to explain what the hell is so “left” or “progressive” about an ideology that consistently censors all feminist class-based analysis
- Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull, aka Posie Parker, appeared at Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park this Sunday (VIDEO). Organizers say this will happen regularly now, which is a good thing, but I do hope someone will show up for future events with a better microphone
Keira Bell is bringing perhaps the most important legal case yet – challenging the 'affirmation' model that is causing so much harm to young people. She's on the home stretch, can you help her get to the £10,000 initial funding she needs? #ROGDWEEK2020 https://t.co/3QZ70pb4Vp
