"While the number of participants was relatively large, they were not a random sample of the overall national population so the results may not be representative...Any follow-up to this study should use a representative sampling approach to overcome these limitations."
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 are politicians proposing a ban on conversion therapy which includes "gender identity?" Who stands to benefit if health professionals find themselves obliged to "affirm" a child's claimed gender identity and at what cost to children's lifelong health and happiness?
Next week Dublin City Council's Comhairle na nÓg is to send out “pledge packs” to 22 schools which expressed an interest in having one as part of the chosen LGBTI+ topic this year. What's BeLonG To's role in this?
If our equality legislation is amended to include "gender identity" it may effectively abolish women's and girl's right to single-sex provision of services or spaces. Why should the demands of some men override the rights of women and girls?
There are only two sexes, which hormones or surgery don't alter. Amending our equality legislation to include males who claim a female "gender identity" risks losing the protections women and girls have on account of our sex. Please let Oireachtas members know your views.

Allowing people to tick both sex boxes in the next census would be yet another attempt to slowly boil frogs and replace the reality of sex with the indefinable concept of “gender identity”. The CSO should resist this attempt by activist groups to capture public policy.
Why are those with Differences of Sex Development (DSDs) being "incorrectly" grouped with sexual and gender identities? Why are campaigners doing this?
