"Ireland's oldest independent human rights body", the Irish Council for Civil Liberties is seeking €450,000 in a pre-budget submission to promote the upcoming Criminal Justice (Incitement to Violence or Hatred and Hate Crime) Bill 2022 which will protect "gender identity" and "gender expression".

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.

Statistics we can't rely on

Statistics we can't rely on

Statistics based on self-identified gender identity rather than sex are misleading and unreliable. By contrast a survey based on sex by the Red C polling company for the new grassroots women's group The Countess deserves far greater coverage by the media.
