  • Maya Forstater has filed an appeal against the decision holding that her recognition of biological sex was “incompatible with human dignity,” and that she’d been rightfully fired for disagreeing with gender identity politics.
  • Gender identity activists in Brazil are demanding that politicians force female security guards to perform body searches of trans-identified males.
