As title, who are the "trans persons" the judge refers to? What is a "trans person" legally?

There is clearly a difference to those with a GRC, as the latter is said to be a subset of the wider group of "trans persons".

So, what are trans people legally? How are they identified? Is it just people who are assumed to have a GRC?

The Forstater case is important because the "trans person" she was accused of harassing was a big, bearded dude named Gregor Murray who identified as non-binary. And non-binary Murray whined about Maya's tweets making him "unsafe" while his Twitter routinely referred to women he disliked as "b!tches" & "c#nts" (keep in mind, Murray's job often put him in direct contact with vulnerable women & children in need of charity). I wish he was brought up whenever speaking about Maya's case because it makes it crystal clear that a double standard was at play and Murray was permitted to use trans as a shield to intimidate women
