To extend the definition of “woman”

Bad lying dishonest deceptive evasive manipulative “reporting” continues:

The UK’s first transgender judge is seeking leave to join the litigation in a crucial supreme court case that could significantly affect legal protections for transgender women, the Guardian has learned.

Terrible lede. Deliberately omits the most vital piece of information. This is a man who is trying to steal women’s rights for himself.

Victoria McCloud, a senior civil judge who became the youngest person appointed as master of the high court in 2010, will make an application to intervene in the supreme court appeal brought by the campaign group For Women Scotland about the legal definition of “woman”. Interveners can put a case without being among the main parties to the litigation.

And male judges who pretend to be women can use their power to trash women’s rights further.

The Gender Representation on Public Boards (Scotland) Act 2018 has been the subject of a long-running court action by the group, which most recently resulted in a ruling by Lady Haldane at the court of session that it was lawful to extend the definition of “woman” to transgender women with a gender recognition certificate.

Great. Just fill the public boards with men who call themselves women then. You can get away with having no women on the boards at all! It’s magical!

McCloud, who transitioned in the late 1990s and subsequently changed her legal sex under the 2004 Gender Recognition Act, is supported in her application by the Good Law Project.

Of course he fucking is. He and Jolyon are probably besties.
