About

Anti-trans advocacy in the UK has somewhat different patterns than in the US and some other parts of the world in that trans rights have been firmly established in law since the 2004 Gender Recognition Act (GRA). Transmisia advocates often focus on (a) fighting against proposed improvements to the GRA and (b) fighting to remove some of its protections.

  • Maria MacLachlan, blogger: "My real-world experience of trans people doesn’t amount to much beyond getting robbed and assaulted by a few of them at Speakers’ Corner in September 2017, though I've made a few real-life trans friends as a result of that experience and a few more online." [1] (more about that incident here and some early details here)

  • 2018-03-28 [L..T] Is J.K. Rowling Transphobic? A Trans Woman Investigates "Ultimately, the answer is yes, she is transphobic, at least in the ways that so many average cisgender people can be. However, because she’s J.K. Rowling, creator of the best-selling book series of all time and an idol to so many LGBTQ+ children and now adults, she gets called out for it. I think it's fair that she receives criticism from trans people, especially given her advocacy on behalf of queer people in general, but also because she has a huge platform. Many people look up to her for creating a singular piece of popular culture that holds deep meaning for fans from different walks of life, and she has a responsibility to handle that platform wisely."
