What’s Current: Former Mumsnet intern Emma Healey publishes private user information over trans debate

What’s Current is Feminist Current’s daily news roundup.

  • UK parenting site, Mumsnet, has reported the exposure of some of its users’ IP addresses on Twitter by a paid, former intern, to UK data regulators. Emma Healey tells The Guardian she published this information because of “misgendering” and “deadnaming” ot trans-identified people.
  • In Liverpool, UK, prostituted women are forced to sell sex for less than £4 per encounter following an influx of competition from trafficked Serbian and Croatian women.
  • Zachary T. McClimans, a trans-identified male who now prefers to be called Claire Wolfever, has pleaded guilty in a Pennsylvania court to attempting to murder a WalMart coworker with whom he had argued over his planned gender transition. The judge ordered that McClimans be referred to as if he were female during the proceedings.
  • Proposed changes to New Zealand’s Births Act that would allow people to change their legal sex based on self-identification, combined with recent changes to Corrections guidelines that use birth certificates as the basis for determining prison housing by sex may endanger female inmates.
