So here we have "Lindsay" Hecox, young man with a paraphilia (textbook case of autogynephilia) and lead complainant in the ACLU lawsuit that has just taken down Idaho's Fairness in Women's Sports Act (hopefully only temporarily). Idaho's HB500 rightly focuses on the fair sports competition issue; the ACLU / Hecox challenge to HB500 provides an opportunity to widen the discussion (among the general public if not in the courtroom) to consider the threat to women's comfort and safety posed by giving AGPs like Hecox access to women's safe spaces. Are there any organisations/media in Idaho giving platform and support to female students (and/or their parents in the case of minors) concerned not only with fairness in sport but also with protection of girls' and women's right to same-sex spaces? Can anyone link them to the evidence in these screenshots?

Exposure. Find every way you can to show others what is happening. Best approach is to expose Gender Identity Campaigners in their own words and actions: screenshots of the calls to violence against women, the frequent baseball bat motifs, photos of massive male athletes posing as women.

"...given that they go through everyday life as women and are treated as such by most of the people they encounter."...
A vanishingly small number of TIMs actually "pass" as women. As such they are treated not as women but as what they are: men who LARP* as women, often as the most sexually objectified version of 'woman' they can put together. Aggressively requiring others to uphold their fantasy/delusion as 'real' exemplifies bad faith.
edit *LARP = live action role play

Don't lose hope. Keep your eye on social media (twitter and spinster) for information about the new GC website. Here is a message the GC mods posted on Spinster yesterday:
We are the mods of the radical feminist subreddit r/GenderCritical. Since we were banned by Reddit we have been working hard to get our community together again.
We are happy to announce that, with some amazing new volunteers, we are busily working on a new site which will restore our opportunity to speak freely about issues that concern women, including male violence, prostitution, pornography – and the growing impacts of gender identity upon women’s hard-won rights. It will have the format we enjoyed before, but this time, we will own the website and the data. No one will be able to take it from us again. It will be bigger in scope than r/gendercritical. If you're looking for a new home for your community, it may be an option for you. We are working out the details. Please note: we are NOT raising any funds at this time.

Is there a GC wiki? If not, I am willing to host one. by Bitchcraft in GenderCritical
Great idea! Just a caveat about "google-findable." A recent post on GC (before banning) pointed out that the Google search algorithm seemed to have been adjusted recently to foreground TRA content on "gender critical." Whereas in the past the gender critical subreddit had been the first or second item listed on page one of results, driving traffic to the sub, suddenly google searches for the term "gender critical" rendered up pages of TRA propaganda maligning and misrepresenting gender critical feminism before listing any actual gender critical resources (the gender critical subreddit itself was suddenly buried on page 3). The banning of the reddit GC sub seems to have brought mentions back up to page one however these are mainly through the distorted TRA lens (e.g. pink news "Reddit just banned its viciously transphobic 'gender critical' page). So it will be important to put energy (and resources) into an effective strategy for ensuring visibility of the new wiki.

What types of coordinated movements are there to support women in situations like these
What types of coordinated movements are there to support women in situations like these
As a community we need to develop a clear set of strategies for collective action when cases like this come to our attention, e.g. circulate a report along with contacts of the employer and encourage GC members to send messages denouncing the firing; make reports to media (cultivate media contacts); encourage consumer boycotts of the companies involved (whilst encouraging consumer support for the work of the writer herself); crowdfund to assist the woman whose livelihood TRAs have attacked
