Conflict, Recognition & Gender Transitions

by Jules Joanne Gleeson

Following our piece last month which argues the UK government has weaponised the Gender Recognition Act (GRA) by failing to act on its public consultation on gender transitioning; here Gleeson reconstructs how the UK got here, analyses the toxic debate we find ourselves immersed within and what needs to be done to productively move forward.

Recognition Against Liberation: On the UK’s Unreformed Gender Recognition Act

By Chris Griffin, University of Brighton

Last month, the UK government finally published its response to the 2018 public consultation on the Gender Recogniton Act. Trans activists and allies, alongside leading charities, have described the response as ‘lacklustre’ and thoroughly insufficient to support those who are transitioning. Here Chris Griffin goes further and argues that the government’s response has the effect of ‘weaponising’ the law against the movement for trans liberation.
