Thanks for those links, Julie.

Now I have ‘heard’ of incidents of trans women attacking females in women-only facilities, but I was never claiming, of course, that such incidents never occurred at all.

But do any of those links specifically answer the main question: Are trans women any more likely than other women to attack females in toilets and changing rooms? And if they are more likely to do so, how large is the extra risk?

Surely it must be possible to see how many reported attacks there have been by trans women (and other women) in women-only facilities and estimate the number of visits there have been by trans women (and other women) to those women-only facilities in a particular time period? What sort of risk are we talking about? One attack per ten million visits, perhaps? Something like that? Any idea?
