I was groomed into the sex industry and later trafficked. While being kept hostage by a violent man, the only place I could escape to was the female toilets. Female toilets enabled me to call for help. If the same scenario were repeated today, he would only have to declare himself a woman to walk in after me. Abusive men don’t have the boundaries or sense of shame normal people have - I know without a shadow of doubt that abusive men like him really would really would take advantage of gender ID laws. I need sex-based spaces to safely navigate the world. If female spaces are opened up to natal males, then we will bring back the “urinary leash” and destroy women’s basic protections.
