Did it never cross your mind when women who've been engaging with you on twitter for over a year now, questioning the threat of losing their sex based rights & single sex services/spaces might actually have had a valid reason as to why they were concerned?

New policy on sexist behaviour and harassment fails to mention prejudice or discrimination on grounds of, er, sex. Anyone else raise an eyebrow, or is that just me?

Dr Barrett's written submission to the Committee raised many valid concerns and has been overlooked by many people who should have been paying more attention.

numerous researched studies and full impact assessments - that support the Government's proposals. Isn't this the normal process for when we want to make changes to laws? We first of all prove there is a need for it, we consult ALL interested parties for their views to

that will obviously have an impact on how effective those protections would continue to be. 6/ Rather than wanting to reeducate women or waiting for us to 'catch up', why don't the people who are advocating for changes in the law present us with solid evidence - including

Also, is it only a problem if they were there to 'harass' women? Do women and girls no longer deserve the right to privacy and dignity to not undress in front of a male person.

that support the needs of women and girls to have single sex spaces. 4/ Although you haven't personally experienced this I'm sure you're not dismissing the accounts of other women and girls who have reported this happening?

3/ Yes you're right, it is an abuse problem. But rather than dismissing our valid concerns as 'unsubstantiated nonsense' why not advocate for further research on these issues. I'm sure it would benefit everyone if evidence existed that could reveal the offending rates for

have 'arguments rooted in fact' where the 'evidence is lacking'. Instead we have to rely on media reports. "a media that is too quick to condemn the heinous actions of individuals as the collective responsibility of a group" . No one I talk to believes these heinous actions

We know that the perpetrators of these crimes are reported in the media as 'women'. We know that the Police and Courts record these crimes as the persons self identified sex i.e. Female. If they had instead accurately recorded sex and trans status gender then perhaps we would
