No Magic Piece Of Paper Will Change The Basic Facts...

A human rights watchdog is set to confirm that employers can limit some jobs to women only after a rape crisis centre in the UK appointed a...

Man...? 

Why, yes, actually! 

...transgender head.

But if only 'she' had a bit of paper, it'd be fine, presumably? 

While The Times describes as a so-called “trans-woman”, the ex-member of the leftist Scottish National Party reportedly does not possess a gender recognition certificate denoting that they are not a man.
The publication also notes that feminist campaigners have complained that there is an issue of rape crisis centres across the UK hiring “transgender” people without such certificates denoting a legal gender change.

Because apparently that would make all the difference. Is the world going utterly nuts, or am I?

You're not going nuts nor is the world. Unfortunately, the nutters are those in a position to make/confirm these appointments and the severely mentally ill appointees themselves.

At some point, sanity HAS to take control back, though?

"only to be followed by this!"

You'd think so but, it seems to me, apart from the odd ineffectual squawk from a "Conservative" minister, nothing happens. Since the UK's institutions have succumbed to Gramsci's long march, I expect worse to come.
