A Scottish Greens MSP has quit the party over its "alienating and provocative" stance on trans rights.
Andy Wightman said he had been threatened with possible expulsion over his concerns about the potential impact of the issue on women's rights.
And he accused the party of being "very censorious of any deviation from an agreed line".
A spokesman for the Scottish Greens said the party wished Mr Wightman well for the future.
