Hi Amelia!

Yeah you're very right. And the proposed Human Rights Act is very troubling in that it allows British courts to ignore jurisprudence nd. Previous case law established. In Strasbourg. Given how often trans people, in particular, have had to rely on the superiority of the European Court of Human Rights to force the UK government's hand we could be looking at the need to re-establish extremely important prior judgements through new case law.
It's of profound concern and is something I'll be covering in future articles.
The level of active collaboration by the media (including, as you say, the BBC) with government who are being influenced by small but disproportionately powerful Anti-Trans lobby groups is likewise of great concern.
The future for British trans people is not bright right now.
Live and solidarity, sister.
