Yeah I’m kind of a dick. Ms Forstater's position is that even if a trans woman has a GRC, she cannot honestly describe herself as a woman. In his ruling, he said that Forstater had been involved in a "very bitter" dispute with a transgender co-worker, Gregor Murray, who had accused her of misgendering them. Ever since transgender women starting competing in biological women’s sports, not only do they break records by massive margins, ITS DANGEROUS. This is probably the most public she's been about her views in this area, given A: she's posting instead of liking/following, and B: The person she's supporting is solely relevant for her views on trans people. JK Rowling found herself at the center of a fiery Twitter debate on gender identification on Thursday. IT IS NOT FAIR.

We can acknowledge that formative experiences that occur directly as a result of sex formulate gender parts of identity while not being transphobic. It gives judicial license for women and men who speak up for objective truth and clear debate to be subject to aggression, bullying, no-platforming and economic punishment," she said, per The Independent. Caitlyn Jenner's Wild I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! While I may chose to use alternative pronouns as a courtesy, no one has the right to compel others to make statements they do not believe. There’s still some people out there who believed I should be barefoot and pregnant and subservient to a man, but nah.
