  • US Rowing has updated their gender identity policy to allow athletes to compete based on their “gender identity” instead of biological sex. The policy also states:

“If an athlete wishes to change gender identity as listed in the membership profile in order to participate in an activity in a manner consistent with their gender identity, all discussion and documentation will be kept confidential, and any proceedings will be sealed unless the athlete makes these records available.”

  • Zero Tolerance, a charity fighting to end male violence, banned discussion about single sex spaces at their 30th anniversary event in Edinburgh. A note sent to attendees said it wanted “to create a safe and supported environment for our guests and ask you to support us in this aim by refraining from discussions of the definition of a woman, and single sex spaces, in relation to the gender recognition act”.

    It added: “As feminists we have strong opinions on these subjects, but this is not the place for that conversation.”

  • A trans-identified male convicted of murdering a 13-year-old child has been released from prison and is harassing women that are critical of gender identity ideology on social media.
