Finding what you wanted to find in the first place

Lost it? A ‘huge majority’ is 58% of 1 001 sampled, based on a question which predisposes the outcome?

If a woman requires an intimate medical examination after being sexually assaulted, do you think she should have the right to ask to be examined by a doctor who has been biologically female since birth, or should she only have the right to ask to be examined by a doctor who is legally regarded as a woman, regardless of that person’s biological sex at birth?

That question only comes to mind if you and others in your circle think that it is a problem of any substance in the first place and then leads respondents to a yes answer.

A 58% only yes response is the first sign that many already doubt its validity.

The question emerges from no statistical evidence whatsoever that it has any basis in the even remotely probable experience of women. Also, on what evidence-base is the implication that a trans woman is likely to be less professional than one ‘biologically female since birth’ implied? This hysteria is almost entirely based on evidence from a tiny, statistically insignificant, number of trans women prisoners who have abused women prisoners.

You might as well ask:

If a woman requires an intimate medical examination after being sexually assaulted, do you think she should have the right to ask to be examined by a doctor who has been biologically human and not a Martian since birth, or should she only have the right to ask to be examined by a doctor who is legally regarded human, regardless of that person’s planet of birth?

Kelly used to know what bad research looked like. What has happened?

Why hasn’t he, as my daughter suggests, in the wake of the Sarah Everard case and of real and massive abuse of women in, for example, the Army, the police force and universities, then tried to fund research into attitudes toward the Scottish Government’s actions to try to stop it?

  1. I am a man, one that was born with a prostate, testicles and a penis. I personally do not care what sex the person is that would examine me medically after say a rape.
    Having said that I feel that had I been born with eggs, uterus, cervix and a vagina and had been raped I would want a female medical person to carry out any examination. A male person would be OK with a female person observing. How do I think I would feel if a trans person were to examine me. A hard question but I feel that I would say no. Obviously I am not PC.

    1. Would you necessarily know they were trans? If they have gone through the process set out in the Gender Recognition Act 2004, which is still the legal route to certification of a trans identity, then I don’t think they have to tell you. I could be wrong.

      1. I agree with you comment. It is just my view at present which I am unsure about but nevertheless feel it. I think it is what I see from television and that I am being influenced by images of trans men. I am confused also why you would wish to be any sex other that you are born with. I know some people are born with both sex organs, whole or part. Lesbian and Gay men do not have a problem dealing with this, I have friends in both gay camps.

  2. It does seem clear that he has come under the influence of the GRA-lobby in recent months going by the content of his blog and Twitter feed. He’s not alone in this of course . It has infected significant parts of the independence movement – cui bono?

  3. No matter what
    At the end of the day
    We are all Human Beings
    Do unto others as you expect them to do
    To you
    Let ye without sin cast the 1st stone
    Speak ill of none without cause

    1. Probably very few. The last figure I saw for the number of people who have gone through the process set out in the GRA 2004 in order to obtain the legal certification of their identity is 5,000 or so.

      It is estimated, note estimated, that there may be several hundred thousand people living as trans but they do not have legal recognition for their trans identity.

  4. A nurse is always present.

    Not one trans doctor?

    Another none problem.

    There have been mixed changing rooms in health clubs, swimming pools etc for years. They are safe and allow women more access with their families and friends. There are separate cubicles. Family changing rooms.

    Give women equal rights with other women to stop abuse. Women who co habit (the majority) do not have equal rights. They have to put in a claim within a year. It costs £thousands in legal fees. There is little legal aid. Women are abused through the Law. The Law has been changed in England to give women legal aid. So women do not lose their house, their home. Women and children have to stay in abusive, unsafe situations or lose the roof over their head.

  5. O/T BBC Reporting Scotland this evening finds a restaurant owner/manager in Glasgow – in Finnieston – who is bemoaning the fact that he has seen ‘no boom’ from COP and that his ‘regulars have stayed away’. He had stocked up in anticipation of increased demand but (in terms) his businesses has suffered as increased demand hasn’t materialised.

    Just checked the restaurant’s online booking system. Seems to indicate no tables available to book this evening and indeed none until next Sunday apart from a slot between 5.00pm and 5.45pm this coming Saturday. Makes one wonder!

      What people say and have actually done
      Are 2 different things
      Online booking systems have to be over ridden as more often than not the booker selects their seating then its allocated
      Repeating till none left
      Any researcher worth their salt would have checked what you have
      Prior clearance for Transmission/broadcast
      And ABC (BBC) have plenty experienced and qualified researchers to call upon
      In this case the veil of propaganda may just have slipped
