Certification rendered meaningless

In Ireland through self-identifying one can obtain a Gender Recognition Certificate, change of name, new birth certificate. Having a criminal record is no bar. It can also be revoked or altered - again just by filling in a form and having a legal witness.

Sex should matter in Census 2022

Sex should matter in Census 2022

Why have gender identity lobbyists been influencing the Central Statistics Office regarding Census 2022? Those who say they feel "uncomfortable" at acknowledging their sex have been allowed tick both boxes and where the response is not clearly indicated, a sex "will be assigned at random."

Politicians abuse women for defending our rights

Some elected politicians believe they can verbally abuse women who defend the rights of women and children and don't subscribe to gender identity ideology. Demonising women for exercising the human right to express our views has no place in a democracy.

Legislation promised - now evidence of need required

Legislation promised - now evidence of need required

Many see including "gender identity" in a ban on conversion therapy as a Trojan Horse to prevent health professionals from doing their job of counselling young people. Is "affirmation" of young people leading to hormones and surgery the real "conversion therapy"?

FLAC fails to support women's sex-based rights

Women and girls are provided with protection on the grounds of sex under our equality legislation. FLAC has just published guidance for making submissions to the Public Consultation on the review of this legislation. Why have they not mentioned the need to protect the rights of women and girls?

Grooming girl guides

Grooming girl guides

What consideration was given to the rights and needs of girls in Irish Girl Guides before the policy on boys who identify as girls and want to join the organisation was adopted? This policy includes guidance on overnight sleeping arrangements and toilets and says nothing of the rights of girls.
