Meanwhile, Irvine Welsh, the Trainspotting author and a prominent supporter of Scottish independence, on Tuesday became the latest high-profile figure to voice concerns about the protection of women’s spaces. “My personal view has always been that if you have a penis and testicles, wherever you should be, it shouldn’t be anywhere designated for women only,” he tweeted. “I don’t see why there’s anything contentious in that.”

Good for Irvine Welsh. I love the way he put this.

It gave me a laugh, too, it's refreshing to have someone speak as if they never heard of this issue and it could be addressed using simple common sense. (Where does he live, on the moon?)

In the land of misogyny.

He’s got to be free to say who a woman is so we can be victims of glamourised rape in all his work🤷🏼‍♀️

"However, a survey conducted by the party’s women’s committee found 45 per cent of female members did not support Ms Sturgeon’s plans, compared to just 28 per cent who were in favour.

I wonder how the men answered (if they were even surveyed, it's not clear)....
