Thanks Katrina for this information.

It is strange times in which are living when the word ‘sex’ is excluded.

Sex refers to the biological differences between males and females.

Gender refers to psychosocial self-perceptions.

How many genders are there scientifically?

Sex - the chromosomal, physical and biological characteristics that distinguish males

from females. There are two biological sexes - male and female.

Let’s stick with science.

Your letter is written from a very generous position - assuming that what these people are doing is being done in good faith. That is, the exclusion of the category "sex" is accidental or mistaken. It is actually absolutely deliberate. The movement fully intends replacing the categorification of people according to biological sex by the synthetic property "gender", the consequences of this you are decrying are desirable to them. Its not a bug, its a feature, to use the IT expression.

The reasons for their apparent inattention to detail etc are just tactics being used to muddle this ideology through into public policy. They are playing on people's good faith these administrators/politicians are just making honest errors to get away with Machiavellian manipulation.

Outrageous attitude by Christchurch City Council for not acknowledging women's sex based rights in having their own dedicated session as biological females. The words 'inclusion and equity' are a liability when it comes to protecting women's hard won rights to their own dedicated spaces. I tried to sign the letter through the Women's Party website but can't access it.
