Men who say they are women have slammed plans to let people in Scotland ‘self-identify’ as the opposite sex as ‘naïve, misguided and simplistic’.Members of the SNP have also raised serious concerns with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. Last month, The Sunday Times reported that the Scottish Government had delayed reforms to gender recognition laws. In a letter to Nicola Sturgeon, a number of transgender women expressed their opposition to self-declared sex swaps. The letter states: “We are deeply concerned about naïve proposals to weaken safeguarding protections in a misguided attempt to support a simplistic notion of inclusion.” “When women do protest they are accused of bigotry and transphobia, and dehumanised as Terfs.” ‘Terf’ stands for Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist and is frequently used as a term of abuse against women who deny that it is possible to change sex.
