Will the Federal Court agree that it’s ok to say no to males in female spaces?

Women’s rights are seriously under threat in this country. An increasing number of males are participating in female sporting divisions, males appropriating female stereotypes are accessing women’s spaces and services, while men in “womanface” (drag queens) are desperately trying to gain an audience with children.

I have had two applications for apprehended violence orders against me for campaigning for the rights of women in sport, which I am currently opposing in court.

The media, politicians and even the police seem captured by an ideology that forces people to lie and deny what is plain to see before their very eyes. No one can change their sex, yet we are all being asked to accommodate a lie that ultimately leaves women and children at great risk of harm. At the very least it is conditioning people to accept lies and disregard simple truth.

The good news is strong, beautiful, articulate women like Giggle founder Sall Grover, and lawyer Katherine Deves, are prepared to stand up and go all the way in protecting our sex-based rights.

Tickle vs Giggle is heading to the Federal Court for a hearing Friday 29th April.

In the first test case of its kind in Australia, the Federal Court is set to determine whether a person who claims a “gender identity” can nonetheless be discriminated against by reason of their sex. Roxanne Tickle, a trans identifying male was removed from Giggle for Girls, an online space for women and girls to connect without unwanted attention, intrusion and harassment from males. Tickle’s removal followed an examination of a selfie uploaded, which revealed Tickle’s male sex.

Tickle claims the removal was unlawful discrimination on the grounds of gender identity.

Tickle wants “a public apology, full access to the app for males who assert “female gender identity” and aggravated damages against Giggle and Sall personally.

Justice Bromwich will preside over the public hearing in the Federal Court in Sydney. Giggle’s legal team will argue that Tickle was removed due to his biological sex as male, not his gender identity.

Should the case proceed, it will launch a landmark constitutional challenge. 

If successful, this could set a precedent that resolves the conflict introduced by Gillard’s 2013 Sex Discrimination Act amendments, protect necessary sex-based rights for females, and render any inconsistent State legislation such as sex self-ID laws questionable.

Katherine Deves announced on Sky that she is on the legal team for Giggle.

We haven’t had much political appetite to protect women’s rights. With this case, it has the potential to be the definitive case to go all the way to the High Court to ensure that women and girls have the right to say no to men in spaces where they are vulnerable.

This will be a very important case in Australia.

Will truth, facts, evidence and science matter more than ideological lies and deception?

Or will legal loopholes triumph over women’s sex-based rights?
