I am only a few pages into reading the full judgement. Absolutely elated that she won, but disappointed by a lot of the language used thus far into the judgement; they spend an unreasonable amount of paper going on and on about the "real harms trans people go through" and the "harassment of misgendering". Cry me a river. Maya lost her job; what harms do trans people in a country like the UK go through that are worse than everyone else and aren't self inflicted?

Yes I was also surprised at the lengths they went to with that stuff too, even while criticising the fact that the original hearing went too far by starting to evaluate the belief itself.

Also if they’re going to be that finicky about it then joke’s on them because the ruling misgenders Bunce (p5):

b. Later that month, the Claimant made a number of comments about Pips/Philip Bunce, who is a senior director at Credit Suisse and describes himself as being “gender fluid” and “non-binary”.

Bunce's pronouns, last time I checked, were he/she so she wasn't even misgendering him in the first place.

True! If she did, then so did this ruling. I would have expected the ruling to refer to “himself/herself” since it was being so particular about that stuff.

Hahahahaha that's amazing! Goes to show how few people actually believe in this nonsense
