Full question: The Scottish Parliament has passed a law that changes the rules for applying for a Gender Recognition Certificate in Scotland. In future, transgender people in Scotland will be able to apply for a certificate after 6 months of living in their acquired gender (3 months, then a 3 month reflection period) and without the requirement of a doctor’s diagnosis of gender dysphoria. The minimum age to apply for a certificate in Scotland will be reduced to 16. It would become a criminal offence to make a false application. The UK Government has blocked these proposed changes, claiming they will have a negative impact on how equality laws operate in the rest of the UK. Others have claimed it would not make any difference to equality laws. Which of the following best reflects your view?
