At present, an individual’s claim to either of the two sexes – with attendant sex-based rights – is founded on scientific criteria – including, but not limited to, the presence of the Y chromosome. The SNP+SGP/Scottish Government propose to dispense with all scientific criteria and make sex a matter of personal choice.
We know, because the science tells us, that sex cannot possibly be a matter of personal choice – not least because sex is determined prior to development of the capacity to make and express informed choices. The SNP+SGP/Scottish Government proposes to get around the problem of legislating an impossibility by making it illegal to point out or refer to the impossibility.
The ‘reforms’ being proposed by SNP+SGP/Scottish Government will place upon me a legal obligation to accept – or at least refrain from openly denying – that the impossible is possible. The law will prohibit me from referencing the science which indicates beyond even unreasonable doubt that sex is predetermined, and requires that I reference only the law which says that sex is a matter of personal choice.
Effectively, the SNP+SGP/Scottish Government proposes to outlaw my rationality.
In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality was tacitly denied by their philosophy.1984, George Orwell.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four.ibid
Freedom is the freedom to say that there are only two sexes; that they are mutually exclusive and predetermined and cannot be a matter of personal choice.
