What’s Current: Figures reveal a surge in young girls seeking to change their gender

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

  • Figures from England’s only child gender clinic, previously under review for fast-tracking children into transitioning, reveal that three quarters of children seeking help are girls. The numbers also show a rise in younger patients, with parents bringing in children as young as three years old.
  • New research reveals that the global increase in sexual violence against women is driven by an upward trend in armed conflict.
  • After his acquittals for two rape charges last week, Ottawa insurance salesman Paul Batchelor faces new complaints from three different women.
  • Oxfam staff are allegedly still demanding sexual contact in return for humanitarian aid in African refugee camps.
  • A New Jersey Judge says that a teenage boy’s sexual assault of a drunk girl is not real rape, despite the boy recording the assault and sending the clip to friends with the caption: “When your first time having sex is rape.”
