Hi Edie. Thanks for your information. Just a question. When you say the legislation passed but they are taking submissions until 11/1/23, I’m a bit confused about the status currently. This is my ignorance probably about process.

It's so disheartening the way the governments are sneaking legislation through and ignoring women and girls rights.

Stopping the trans borg is the hill I will die on, if necessary too...

Just an observation about the threats of doxxing...perhaps there is something wrong with me that I am totally nonchalant about it. In fact, I have replied to TRAs threatening my safety by sending them my genuine home address. It seems strange to me that is there is so much fear that our place of residence or work might become publicly known. I am of the generation where almost everybody had a great big fat book in their home that listed the name, address and phone numbers of the majority of citizens. It was called the phone book. Did we live in a more civil society in those days that nobody feared strangers would arrive on the doorstep to do us violence because someone had discovered we had a world view they disagreed with? Even for most of the early 20thC when observant Catholics and Protestants disdained each other to the degree they would not marry, it was inconceivable for most ppl to worry that they had to hide where they lived to avoid the potential of violence.

Perhaps some will dismiss me as a naive old fogey but I really don't think we are really in any more danger today than 70 years ago. There are still laws about assaulting others.

Happy to give out my true place of residence to anyone here...34 Haydon St, Murrurundi, NSW 2338. Believe me, its funny that once you say it...the fear that it has to be kept secret, goes...poof

I know you would have the courage to go to prison. As a fellow Australian woman from a long line of traumatised women descended from ‘damned whores’ who were transported here, I am proud of you and greatly admire your courage. My eldest son is now trans so it’s a bit too close to home for me to get involved politically, but I’m seething with a kind of rage that I worry is too much and will become destructive if I let it. It doesn’t even matter if it could be proven that the male pattern violence is absent in trans people (it’s not). It’s just wrong. It breaks down our boundaries and takes away a mother’s power to protect her children- even unisex bathrooms are a violation. A little girl was singing asking for her bottom to be wiped and there was a man standing outside her stall while her mother called out ‘wait, don’t open the door!’ with a hint of panic in her voice as she got baby out of pram and squeezed all three of them into the cubicle- which smelt like a men’s toilet with no seat and piss on the floor. It just makes our lives harder. No privacy, no escaping hearing a man piss loudly. It’s so bloody horrible. The whole thing.
