What is a TERF? Or Sex Segregated Spaces: Where and Why

[Edit 2/24/2015: I originally made this chart as a means of parsing what the ‘E’ in TERF actually means. So I have changed the title to include the term TERF (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist). The central question is: what exactly are transwomen being excluded from (where)? And what is the purpose of that exclusion (why)? […]

Restatement of political position on “gender identity” laws in the USA

I opened this site in 2011 as an internet placeholder for an extremely controversial letter I had written with another lawyer. This letter, hereinafter referred to as the UN letter,[i] is about a legal trend in the United States towards the state level adoption of anti-discrimination laws designed to define and protect something called “gender identity.” We described […]

Gender legally replacing “sex” reaches new heights of absurdity in Utah

I hate to say I told you so, but….confusing sex with gender is back-firing. Big time. The Advocate has run a news story about some pretty outrageous legislation being proposed in Utah. Their primary concern seems to be that physical exams will be mandated for trans-identified students wishing to use the bathroom in accordance with […]

(G)ENDA back up for a vote in the Senate

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) has been introduced to Congress numerous times, and is up for a Senate vote again, but has thus far failed to be enshrined in law.

Cracks in your foundation: Dana Beyer, M.D. and Monica Roberts support Brennan and Hungerford’s UN letter

WE ALL AGREE THAT OBJECTIVE CRITERIA ARE LEGALLY NECESSARY FOR PROTECTION OF A “TRANS” IDENTITY Shocking, isn’t it? Well, let’s not waste any time proving my alarming assertion with screenshots and links! First, here is the view represented by the 2011 shot-heard-round-the-world-UN-letter that elicited threats of violence, harassment, and claims of our complicity with murder: […]

Impact litigation? The ADA vs. “gender identity” laws

I received the following comment from a reader and decided that the best course of action– BECAUSE WE DO NOT GIVE LEGAL ADVICE AT SEXNOTGENDER.COM– was to edit it slightly for clarity and open it up for a larger discussion. It is, indeed, a FASCINATING legal question. I love it! Please email me at elizabeth.hungerford@gmail.com […]

CHART! “Gender Identity” laws by state: definitions, citations, contexts

I made this excel spreadsheet of “gender identity” anti-discrimination legislation almost a year ago.  I have hesitated to share it on the internet because there are surely errors (in the weblinks and citations if nothing else) and because IT SHOULD NOT BE RELIED UPON FOR LEGAL RESEARCH. But still, it’s pretty sweet and helps frame […]
