Perhaps if the movement had spent its time & energy fighting the government instead of fighting feminists and for safe, prompt, well resourced & evidence-led support & treatment services instead of trying to usurp women’s rights & deny biological reality we’d have won those

Any 'Trust us, we know best!' policy needs to be closely scrutinised by the public. Also, the demonising of anyone who raises concerns, rather than actually engaging with their concerns, should always be seen as a Red Flag.

I don't know how adult services work or who is appointed 'control', but the problem here is that it was the NP who was the central person. Not the child and not the parent. A policy that inadvertently hands that level of power to a public authority needs very clear guidance.

It would be a shame to lose the Child's Plan, as there were some really good intentions behind it. But 'consent' is a massive issue here especially with agencies who have a tendency to overshare information. This will be a very difficult problem to work around.

Part 5 talks about the ‘responsible authority’, and that would be the NP in the vast majority of the cases. Either way the issue with information sharing would still exist regardless of whether it was Education or Health who creates the plan.

As it currently stands the NP has overall ‘control’ of the Child’s plan, so all the problems around consent and information sharing equally applies here. Who should get to decide where that ‘control’ lies? The NP? The parent? The child?

Replying to @VonnSand
How will this affect the GIRFEC policy, will only parts of it be scrapped, like the Childs Plan?

We've had 90 amazing submissions! Can we make it to 100? If you have read or written an article about violence against women or gender equality why not submit it to ?

How would the specific health care needs for trans people be planned if we don’t even know their sex? An NHS service that is so focused around a persons sex needs to know this vital data. We shouldn’t pretend female & male bodies are the same.

There is nothing dishonest in that blog. If you read it beyond the first quote you’ll understand my point. But tell me this, how can the specific health care for trans people be planned if we don’t even know their sex? A service so focused on a persons sex surely needs to know?

No, the blog is about asking people their sex. The additional voluntary trans question will help collect more information about this population. The sex question shouldn’t then be conflated with gender. Who would be benefited by skewing these stats?

Apparently quite a lot! Needing accurate data about this population was repeatedly stated as the reason to include a Trans question in the Census esp as they have ‘very specific health needs’.

If people only understood that sex & gender are different! Quote in Sun ‘NHS paediatrician Dr Julie Maxwell said: “Almost every kind of illness behaves differently in men and women. “You lose any meaningful knowledge of how often health problems are happening in men and women.’
