There have been some horrifying cases recently of people being prosecuted for failing to reveal their status as transgender to sexual partners in Scotland. It's been prosecuted as "gaining sexual intimacy by deception", under fraud legislation, and apparently they're the only known examples of this. No one has ever been prosecuted for, say, lying about being married on a dating site. The reporting has been thoroughly muddled and transphobic, and who knows what's actually going on with the court cases but that sounds very odd as well.

There is a very well-written petition being run by the Scottish Transgender Alliance. Please sign it and tell other people about this.
