Also an offence in the UK.

And if the Equality Act passes possibly in the US as well.

Equality Act 2010

I remember a court case being covered by the BBC a few months ago.

The case was dropped.

I haven't found any successful prosecution for misgendering in the UK.

The one I was thinking of went to court, might have involved a TERF.

https://www.theguardian.com/society/...-to-transition

This is from today and is related:

School counsellors and mental health service providers are bowing to pressures from ‘highly politicised’ transgender groups to affirm children’s beliefs that they were born the wrong sex, a leading expert has warned.

Marcus Evans, a psychotherapist and ex-governor of the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, whose Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) is the only NHS clinic to provide gender counselling and transitioning, said many experts were living in fear of being labelled transphobic, which was having an impact on their objectivity.

btw has anyone seen the Indian version of the Office? It launched the end of last month. I have only seen 2 of the 13 episodes. The first was very funny, the second, not so much.
Sadly no subtitles on this trailer

I started to watch until I saw it was 44mins and 43secs. I'm not going to watch something that long.

Have you got a written version?

Sorry, from memory the last section goes into the more general situation. And the introduction you will know about but even so worth watching as it brings it all together.

The lawyer explained how the situation arose and with developments the inevitable consequences of competing rights. Apparently the Courts in Canada deny their is a hierarchy or rights and he explained that there is and has to be.

Now this person is particularly unpleasant, and I thought maybe this was a set up to show the illogicality of the laws. However nothing to suggest that s/he is not just taking advantage, sort of like ADA and ESA's.

Can't afford to waste that much time on a stupid man/or whatever it thinks/claims/wishes/pretends it is. The bottom line is who really cares-apart from his mother.

Well the people taken to court having their livelihoods destroyed may disagree with you.

And of course this is just the current example.
