Feminists decry sex change proposals on men who identify as women

“By allowing any person to self-identify their sex, it effectively redefines what ‘sex’ means under law,” Ms Anne said. “It stops being a reflection of a physical biological reality and becomes a social construct and a reflection of how a person subjectively feels about themselves.”

On a practical level, the group believed Ms Banks’s amendments would undermine protections under the Sex Discrim­ination Act that allow for women-only services such as domestic violence shelters and support groups, gyms, sports, events and clubs.
