I'll don't want to derail the thread so I'll accept my autistic ratings on this comment and then I'll stop talking about it, but I'm not sure you're correct about that. The EHRC's example of a pub landlord misgendering a troon customer is not an employment situation. The Wiki about the legislation says "The Act protects people against discrimination, harassment or victimisation in employment, and as users of private and public services based on nine protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment..."The Equality Act 2010 is employment law. It covers workplace harassment, not other kinds of harassment (ie criminal harassment).
All that said, I'm actually not sure that Rhys is referring to the Equality Act when he says misgendering is a crime. There's also the Criminal Justice Act which mentions "hostility towards persons who are transgender."
Anyway, I feel that if Rhys (and all the other Twitter troons currently screaming about this) were correct that misgendering had been "ILLEGAL!" in the UK for at least 9 years (depending on whether they're trying to invoke the 2010 Equality Act or the 2003 Criminal Justice Act), there'd be some case law they could point to. There isn't. But I still haven't seen a convincing rationale for why a troon can't go to court to argue that misgendering constitutes "harassment" (Equality Act) "...motivated by hostility towards persons who are transgender" (Criminal Justice Act).
EDIT: Here is the UK's definition of harassment, which specifically mentions Twitter.
Troonery is not a protected characteristic in the US.That makes ordinary crimes worse. Like a hate crime. They exist in the US too.
The Equality Act specifically prohibits 1.) discrimination, 2.) victimisation, and 3.) harassment.Regardless, it doesn't have anything to do with harassment.
