Pronouns For Who?

New census data in the UK shows that the percent of adults who identify as transgender is approximately 0.5%. That equates to about one in every 200 adults.

The question asked was “Is the gender you identify with the same as your sex registered at birth?” Six percent of respondents did not answer but of the 94% that did, 0.5% said no. Meanwhile, 3.2% identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual or another sexual orientation, meaning other than heterosexual.

These are interesting statistics, given the strong movement to re-order society according to gender pronouns and single-sex spaces. Is it worth doing that for such a small population if it has a negative effect on other populations of marginalized groups such as female prisoners or sexual abuse survivors?
