So while I was rolling my eyes at this, I think it was actually strategically clever from the court. After the Keira Bell judgment the female judge (of course) was attacked, called a transphobe etc even by some lawyers (like Jo Maugham.) Even though the judgment had nothing to do with contraception, the TRAs jumped on it saying it would be used to deny teenagers abortions and contraceptives.

The court realises this is a very sensitive political hot potato, and they realise that misinformation is rife. After Maya's hearing there was loads of screeching from the TRAS that if she wins it would make misgendering legal, trans people could be fired for being trans etc. By laying it out so clearly, the court has blocked any avenue the TRAS might want to take in saying this judgment is 'transphobic'.

That was my thought too. They had to make their argument as water tight as possible. Obviously TRAs will find something to complain about regardless, but the less ammo they're given, the better.
