Part of the problem is the laws around "harassment" which are almost always used by men to abuse (and harass) women, but rarely are used to recognise the actual harassment that women suffer.

So, in the workplace a woman who does not want to comply with the pronoun nonsense, who states her right under law for single sex toilets etc - none of this is harassment at all.

However picking on an individual and subjecting them to a sustained campaign of threats, bullying, interference with their work - this is harassment - and it is all from the TRAs to women - rarely (if ever) the other other way round, yet the TRAs still bleat about how terribly persecuted they are. This is the next big step, to undo all that.

Honestly, what I am anxiously awaiting - and it WILL happen - is for a TRA to send death threats to a co-worker who believes in biology. That WILL happen, mark my words, and it will wind up becoming a major case, too. Only a matter of time.

Probably will also have enough cases coming to light in the coming years of TRAs or transwomen assaulting a female co-worker in a space that was formerly single-sex. Unfortunately those things will likely have to become commonplace enough (I know they have already happened) before people regain enough sense en masse to protest this.
