  • Actor Ralph Fiennes comes out in defense of JK Rowling, who has been harassed and threatened over her support for women’s sex-based rights. In an interview with the New York Times, he said:

“JK Rowling has written these great books about empowerment, about young children finding themselves as human beings. It’s about how you become a better, stronger, more morally centred human being. The verbal abuse directed at her is disgusting, it’s appalling.”

  • A Scottish government minister has resigned ahead of a Holyrood debate about proposed gender identity legislation. The community safety minister, Ash Regan, resigned in order to vote against the government’s bill, saying:

“I have considered the issue of gender recognition reform very carefully over some time. I have concluded that my conscience will not allow me to vote with the government at the stage one of the bill this afternoon.”
