You are so right to be suspicious about this Katrina. Women are lied to and manipulated into "being kind", which here is a code word for prioritising the wants, desires and feelings of men (and their followers) over the actual needs and safeguarding of women and our hard fought for rights. Exactly how many is "too many" girls and women harmed by entrenching misogyny into the NZ legal system? Who is counting? Written over two years ago, this is even more relevant and frightening now than when it was published: https://grahamlinehan.substack.com/p/sex-and-statistics?fbclid=IwAR3SM-HWUPsr_zDUlUnFpM_llG6M0WUN0rFQrMKzTCRkeqx9fkKs4OqgFgI

"I see merit in this, and if the word ‘sex’ got further defined to ensure the differentiation was clear, then it could be a useful distinction to have in legislation. Even as it stands now, the mere use of the words ‘sex’ and ‘gender identity’ separately in the bill indicates a heretofore unspoken acknowledgement that they are two different things."

This is an important distinction. I am often minded of the observation of both of my 3 year olds sons' independent response to finding sticks of a certain size on the ground. These were almost immediately utilized as swords or rifles for war play without being told or shown that possibility. Unfortunately I do not have any daughters so I cannot say they do not do the same, but I strongly suspect they tend not to.

However if a three year old girl, were to pick up a stick and join in that behaviour that does not mean she is a male and should go on hormone blockers and have her breasts removed.

Nor if a 6 year old boy pretends to gallop like a horse and play ponies with a group of 6 year old girls, does that make him a girl and allow him to go into girls changing rooms.

But there is no room for nuance in this cult, so the nuance is deliberately ignored, nuance being an enemy of ideology.

Yes, women are being emotionally abused by this movement. I feel so nervous when I speak the truth to others about it. I'm surprised how many agree with me and breathe a sigh of relief once one of us has said it. Sex is binary - end of story. Plus, I choose to protest gender theory due to its origins...I.e John money

No idea. It was just a chat in the line at the supermarket.

Thanks for another good read Katrina! I'm gobsmacked by the insanity of this movement. I was talking to a transgender woman (man) this morning and have full respect for his choice to present and dress in 'feminine' ways but I still did not see a woman when I was talking to him.
