Lesbians are Women

In Australia we lost the right to exclude male-bodied people from the category ‘lesbian’ or 'woman'.

EXAMPLES

 

  • It’s not woke versus woke if lesbians want to exclude trans-women  July 2020 The Australian, it was reported LGB Tasmania spokeswoman Jessica Hoyle brought a test application for an exemption from the Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination commissioner to hold some single-sex events.  “Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination Commissioner Sarah Bolt has ruled lesbian events that exclude trans-women (heterosexual males that identify as lesbians) carry a “significant risk” of breaching legislation.”
     

  • The decline and fall of freedom of association for Lesbians and Gays in Australia. "Tasmania’s anti-discrimination commission has trained its sights on the contemporary version of the controversy that gripped Byzantium: whether an organisation of lesbian “people without penises” (previously known as women) should be allowed to exclude “people with penises” (once termed men) from its “drag king bingo, drag king karaoke, and drag kings” nights, along with other events."
     

  • State Sanctioned Rape Culture, what happens when we say men are lesbians, in prisons, in our associations to our freedom.
