What’s Current: Meghan Murphy files legal complaint against Twitter over account deletion

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

  • Meghan Murphy’s legal team has filed a complaint against Twitter, after they suspended her account for tweeting, “Yeah, it’s him,” in reference to a trans-identified male who took a number of female estheticians to human rights court after they declined to give him a Brazilian bikini wax. The case will be entirely funded through donations.
  • Following the sexual assault of two female prison inmates by trans-identified male prisoner, Karen White, UK MPs expressed concern about prison guidelines that allowed inmates to be placed by self-identification of gender, rather than sex, and are now planning to create separate prison wings for trans-identified male inmates to address concerns abuse.
  • A UK woman was arrested by Hertfordshire police and held in a cell for seven hours without sanitary products while menstruating, after referring to a trans-identified male with a criminal record as a man on Twitter, and using his former name (under which he was convicted of assaulting a man with a golf club).
  • As concerns grow about women in India’s exposure to sexual harassment and assault in the informal labor sector, the country, where a woman is raped every thirteen and a half minutes, has been shocked again by the rape and murder of a five-year-old girl after she was abducted in the middle of the night from her family home.
  • Arizona state representative, Michelle Udall, has introduced a bill that would declare pornography a public health crisis, saying that porn’s widespread availability to children leads to “low self-esteem, eating disorders, and an increase in problematic sexual activity at ever-younger ages.”
