Are we trying to override science in trans debate?

Letters to the Editor: from Herald Scotland:

YOU report on responses to the consultation on the Gender Recognition Act laws (The Herald, November 24). So is being male or female something that happens to us? Or is it something we choose? This can be a difficult subject to talk about. I have friends who are transgender and I am not wanting to upset them. But at the same time this is an important subject which needs to be discussed.

The consultation itself was a consultation …. not a referendum. As so often happens with government consultations, one side or the other claims to have more “votes”. Your headline was “Scots back new laws to allow people to self-declare gender”. That is nonsense. Scots have not backed anything. The aim of a consultation is to get the whole range of views out on the table.
