How big is the transgender population in the UK? There is no robust data on the number of trans people in the UK. Data on gender identity is not collected in any government social survey. However, estimates are in the region of 1% of the UK population identifying as transgender.
In July 2017, the government launched a survey to gather more information about the experiences of LGBT people in the UK. Over 108,000 people participated, making it the largest national survey of LGBT people in the world to date. It was a self-selecting survey so may not be fully

I’m a scientist, so facts matter to me. At Fair Play for Women, we use hard data and proven facts to defend women and their rights. Knowing that the proposed changes to the Gender Recognition Act would allow any male prisoner to change the sex on his birth certificate to
“Girlguiding is not just sleepwalking into the next sex abuse scandal. They are wilfully turning the other way and hoping for the best.” Julie Bentley the CEO of Girlguiding made this statement on 12th March 2018 in response to media reports that parents and leaders are concerned about
There has been a lot of publicity and discussion on social media recently about a study which reports on a trans-identified male who has exclusively breastfeed a baby for the first 6 weeks. So is this possible and who might benefit from this; if male-bodied people are now able to nurse

Human genetics – sexual reproduction, chromosomes, how it works; genes, what can go wrong. Sexual development, disorders and gender identity! Masses of information, some guaranteed surprises, pictures, videos and loads of links. Clue yourself in.

Real physical differences between women and men are too far-reaching to cover in depth but I’ll try to be comprehensive. Part 1: structure. Skeleton, head, muscles.
Created by parents struggling to help their gender-questioning children, Mermaids Transgender was a support group. Now it’s a registered charity, receiving large grants and consulted by the UK Government, the NHS and others. And is still a group of blinkered evangelists. Despite their elevated status, Mermaids have shown themselves incapable of handling facts or seeing wider contexts. Our distressed young people need support, not sterilisation. We explain.
