A trans law confronts Scotland and London

The British government scrapped the project approved in Edinburgh because “it would have serious adverse effects”.

A small group of trans rights advocates have accused the British government of “transphobia”. This is because the executive has blocked legislation passed in Scotland to make it easier for people to self-identify as transgender without the need for a medical diagnosis. London says the rules could affect equality laws that apply across the UK.

One activist says, “They’re lying when they say it’s anything other than transphobia. There’s nothing in that law that repeals or harms the Equality Act.” Another believes that “seeing UK government intervention to prevent Scotland from reforming its gender identity reform basically means that the UK government is doing so much to not allow trans rights to improve within the country.” committed that they are prepared to damage his reputation and his relationship with Scotland.” Do it.”

It is the first time since the formation of the Edinburgh legislature in 1999 that the British executive is to use Section 35 powers to quash a bill passed by the Scottish Parliament. “We assessed that the Bill would have serious adverse effects on, among other things, the operation of the Equality Act 2010. Those adverse effects include effects on the operation of single-sex clubs, associations and schools, and protections such as equal pay,” the State of Scotland Secretary Alister Jack said

Scottish Chief Minister Nicola Sturgeon has accused London of launching a “direct attack on the institution of the Scottish Parliament” and said the case would “inevitably end up in the High Court”.
