If men with Gender Recognition Certificates continue to be put into women's prisons in Ireland separate accommodation is needed. But why might lesbians need separate accommodation in the new Limerick women's prison and why is the "I" for "intersex" included in "LGBTIQ+ prisoners"?
A man's feelings of having a female “gender identity” is a belief. The concept of “gender identity” cannot be allowed to replace the reality of sex in law. For women and girls, any legislation needs to prioritise safeguarding protection and privacy on the basis of our sex.
Why should women and girls be expected to have fully intact males, who claim to have an undefinable "gender identity", in our private spaces?

Why is the Department of Education and Skills funding a lobby group to tell school students during Stand Up Awareness Week that a lesbian is a "woman who is mainly attracted to other women"? How does this fit with the 2013 Action Plan for Bullying?
