8: Are they, or the operator, guilty of criminal discrimination if it later turns out that that person has officially registered as a woman?

The same applies to searches, for example, at Schiphol Airport.
13: To what extent will gender-critical opinions of individuals and organizations be protected in the law? Will people who publicly (for example, at work, or in social media) say that biological sex is unchangeable be protected in their free speech and freedom of belief and conviction, or will it soon be considered “hate speech” and criminally prosecuted?
14: To what extent are people and organizations protected who are thwarted or barred by large, influential third parties (e.g. banks, tech companies) by depriving them of basic rights just because they see the concept of gender as an immutable biological fact?
15: If people with male bodies can also be ‘women’, is discrimination based on pregnancy and childbirth still discrimination based on gender?
