Equality Act is drawing opposition from feminists and conservatives alike


A prime case of "Baptists and Bootleggers": The Equality Act is drawing opposition from both feminists and conservatives, who claim that a law that requires people to be treated as the gender that they claim to be (rather than the gender they actually are) is going to be greatly disadvantageous to women, because it takes away "safe spaces" for women (not the best term, since that has loaded connotations, but I can't think of what else it would be called.) A man could then compete as a woman in woman's sports simply by claiming he is a woman, etc.
