  • On Friday, a Grade 11 student in Ontario organized a rally at his high school after some female students complained to him about males using the female washrooms in St. Joseph’s Catholic High School. Josh Alexander told CTV News:

“As a young man I feel an obligation to take action against something like that. I know there’s a lot of misinformation posted online that this is an anti-trans rally, that’s not the case. We just simply want male students removed from the female washrooms.”

  • New data reveals an explosion in young women and girls questioning their gender identity within the past year. Referrals for cross-sex hormone replacement therapy and double mastectomies have risen sharply alongside.
  • Staff at an NHS-affiliated NGO are told to call the police to report “transphobic language” in a new employee guide titled “how to be a trans ally.”
