Elizabeth MillernoneIllinoisThe current version of the Equality Act is unacceptable because it redefines "sex" as something you can "identify" in or out of, thus decimating women's sex-based rights. The Feminist Amendments to the Equality Act fix this problem while at the same time creating protection against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender non-conformity for all people.
Michelle Follows SelfIllinois Women’s rights cannot be thrown under the bus for trans rights, trans women and women are different even though they tell you not to say it. Misogyny is not progressive.

J. Neath, S. Wiseheart, P. MariedaughterXX AmazonsU.S.Hooray for FIST's feminist Equality Act! The FIST Equality Act uses the simple strategy of ensuring the rights of women, LGB, and transgender people by creating three protected classes: sex, sexual orientation and sex stereotypes. All gender nonconforming people, including transgender people, are protected from discrimination on the basis of sex stereotypes. Women's sex-based rights are protected by eliminating the flawed and dangerous concept of gender identity from the document. This is a win for women, Lesbians, gays and transgender people!
Jeanne NeathNoneArkansasThe version of the Equality Act currently under consideration in the U.S. Senate would entrench the concept of gender identity in U.S. law, making gender identity equivalent to sex, eliminating female only public spaces, and, in effect, doing away with the legal existence of women. FIST's Feminist Amendments provide the desperately needed alternative. FIST has done an outstanding piece of feminist work. Now it is our turn! We all need to do everything we can to ensure that FIST's version of the Equality Act is the one that becomes law in the U.S.
Mary SyrettNone.CanadaIt is essential to have sex-based legal protections for people bearing XX chromosomes, which specifies that only such people are female.
Jay JacksonnoneMichigan
D. BrowernoneFloridaA person's sex isn't something you can identify into or out of. It's the basis of homosexuality and women's oppression. These amendments protect LGB people, women, and other non-conforming people with fairness for all.

Tina MinkowitznoneNew YorkFAEA represents a feminist approach to accommodating discrimination against trans people as a form of sex stereotyping, along with other people who are gender nonconforming, while maintaining sex discrimination as a separate category that addresses the systemic oppression of women (females) by men (males). Sexual orientation discrimination is also prohibited, and religious freedom loopholes for discrimination are closed - as in the original Equality Act. We do not reject the Equality Act entirely but correct it to bring it in line with feminism and respect women's human rights as a sex.
Christian Garland None UK Sex-based rights meaning feminism based on biological sex not 'gender identity' which this is very much part of needs to be widely understood and to make itself heard and refuse to be silenced as ReSisters, FIST and many others refuse to be. This ongoing campaign is also very critical of the nonsense claiming autogynephiles - heterosexual and to a much lesser extent homosexual men - who are sexually aroused by pretending they are women, should get all of the rights they have as men and also get all of the rights of women, and who believe their kink entitles them to exclusively female spaces: it doesn't, and must never.

Samantha HollandNoneLouisiana
Aleks KinclaraNoneMinnesotaI am convinced that the vast majority of people have no idea about the ramifications of the Equality Act as currently written. I am utterly grateful to FIST for laying out a coherent response that protects the basic human rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexual people, and transgender people without enshrining new quasi-religious concepts such as ‘gender identity’ into law. I think of it this way. Even though ‘race’ (human genetic variability) truly is a spectrum, and we are all ultimately of African ancestry, ‘white’ people should not have a protected right to unilaterally ‘identify’ as a member of an indigenous community, or as a person of color. Equally obvious, male people should not have a protected right to self-identify as women, as girl, as female. Material reality matters. I support feminists who understand their job is to protect the interests of female people, of women and girls. At the centennial of women securing the vote, let’s not destroy ourselves as a political class. Let’s get this right.

Amber AtiyaNoneNYI am a Black woman who currently resides at a women's shelter where trans identified males are accommodated under DHS (Dept of Homeless Services) policy. In the 20 months that I've been here, these males have threatened, verbally/physically assaulted, amd stalked female residents, staff, and security. I've heard stories about similar behavior taking place at other women's shelters in NYC, as well as stories of women in shared supportive housing being sexually assaulted by male roommates who ID as trans. Most of the women here are Black/Latina, so when trans males become violent, it's primarily women of color who suffer for it. As one of my dorm mates said, "it's bad enough to have to worry about defending yourself against other women. But men too?" We must fight to the death to protect vulnerable women and girls.

Jos GLGB Alliance USAFloridaSex is biological and immutable. Gender is a set of performative, draconian stereotypes which serve to oppress women and men. We cannot allow the Equality Act to conflate sex with gender and codify into law a redefinition of the words sex, gender, woman.
