What’s Current: Twitter reverses ban on free speech activist Lindsay Shepherd

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

  • Free speech activist Lindsay Shepherd has been reinstated on Twitter after her account was banned following exchange with Jessica Yaniv, the complainant against several female beauticians who refused to wax his genitals. Meghan Murphy, inexplicably, remains banned.
  • An Ontario, Canada man who molested his 14-year-old daughter was found not criminally responsible by a judge who accepted the defendant’s claim that he was “suffering” from sexsomnia.
  • A law professor’s study of 4,388 US divorce cases suggests that mothers who report the father for child abuse are more likely to lose custody.
  • A report in Edinburgh University’s journal, Scottish Affairs, argues that policy-makers overly influenced by advocates for “trans rights” have failed to consider how allowing people to self-declare their gender might affect other groups. Dr. Kath Murray and Lucy Hunter Blackburn state:

“The analysis shows how decision making has been directed towards the interests of one specific interest group, to the detriment of another, women and girls.”
