So I've been reading everything posted on the Maya ruling, and it seems to me GC folks need to be thinking about next steps and what those would be.

For example, the ruling talks about how DEI training that takes only a Gender Ideology-accepting approach might open an employer up to litigation for creating a hostile workplace for GC people. So should Sex Matters or another organization create a Gender Critical training that employers could give to protect themselves from such litigation? Could such a GC training actually help re-take some of these captured organizations?

And are there other things that come to mind that could be used to ensure the Maya ruling actually changes things? What are your thoughts?

I agree with you. I think the sports issue appears to be the one with the most potential at this point. I don't yet know what to make of that... I really, really hope it can be the beginning of a larger serious conversation. I feel like I've woken up to a reality where several laws have been quietly rewritten without any consultation. I'm still struggling to grasp how it happened.

"Just woken up ... how did it happen?" Well. I have three words that are going to change your life. The Denton's Document.

Now, I haven't actually read it, because I'm a little afraid to. I'm afraid it will make me too angry. But from what everyone says, it is a document produced by a legal firm to outline lobbying/policy-writing techniques to get gender woo woo policies passed quickly and quietly.

Thanks! I've read portions of it. Yes, it did blow my mind.

The horrifying thing to me is that there is no outlet in what we'd consider "mainstream press" in the US that would touch this topic. These days, I'm obsessively stalking UK outlets for news.

Me too! One funny side effect of joining Ovarit is I understand so much more about UK politics now.

We gotta get organized, Mil...we gotta figure it out. I keep trying to come up with strategies, but they seem to gain so little traction. I took out a billboard in my town. I write letters to legislators. I track state and federal bills. I send books to friends. But people just... I'm greeted with so much apathy. Something has to make a BIG splash to wake people up.

One consolation to me is that we are 4 years behind the UK because the US spent 4 years distracted by a gonzo administration, and every day and every headline was like a crazy dumpster fire. Hopefully now people can start to pay attention.
