www.telegraph.co.uk/women/life/truth-female-sex-offenders/

Articles about record number of female criminals, lead with a picture of a transwoman. Rises in reported 'female' crime...ignoring that figures will be screwed from this day on given MALE crimes are logged as by females. And so on.

I am actually fucking raging about this and cannot vent anywhere except here as I would be deleted.

Surely noone actually thinks this is right?!

Story from earlier today about the 'female' featured on this story too

Wtaf??? So a man committed crimes, is now living as a woman yet the reporting is on female crimes?!

TheVermiciousKnid Tue 07-Mar-17 19:18:06

You're not on your own. It's ridiculous.

FlaviaAlbia Tue 07-Mar-17 19:19:06

YANBU that article is infuriating! angry

DJBaggySmalls Tue 07-Mar-17 19:19:16

Its insane. We cant go on like this.

Yanbu. Although I thought your OP was going to be about this story:

www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4289920/Woman-26-appears-court-charged-raping-man.html

This woman was formerly called "Gavin".

I'm angry about how long I've been angry about these kind of cases, with nothing I can do. What can we do?

TheVermiciousKnid Tue 07-Mar-17 19:21:19

And if anybody wants to call me a TERF, fucking bring it on.

An article on "female" sex offenders and they lead with a case perpetrated by a man.
And the second link - man who usually dresses like a woman is now dressed as a man.
So, a man then.

YANBU. I am angry too angry

The authors Twitter handle (?).

@andreajdarling

I don't do Twitter but some of you might do.

WankingMonkey Tue 07-Mar-17 19:26:35

Yeah the other 'woman' that raped a man has annoyed me a bit too but this one is something else. A (male) woman who may be dressed like a man indeed. Fuck this. Fuck it all.

Pawpainting Tue 07-Mar-17 19:28:06

Maybe they know it's ridiculous but know they will face a backlash for saying so? That's why the lead the article with a picture of a clearly male person, so more people will think 'hang on a sec, this isn't right'

Or am I just clutching at straws?

WankingMonkey Tue 07-Mar-17 19:38:33

I would say its overly optimistic paw..but I guess a possibility.

I am just waiting for my friends to start posting this on facebook. I have a feeling this may be the matter that excludes me from a lot of friendship groups as I have stayed pretty quiet on most ridiculous matters so far but this has actually angered me a lot more than it (probably) should do...

WankingMonkey Tue 07-Mar-17 19:39:01

Though i guess, deep down, everyone must know that this is bollocks right? Or is THAT clutching at straws? sad

SallyGinnamon Tue 07-Mar-17 19:42:12

It's a bad case of the Emperors new clothes. Nobody is prepared to speak the truth for fear of a backlash.

God knows how we're going to move away from all this nonsense.

GahBuggerit Tue 07-Mar-17 19:46:50

id like to think its all one massive "awww lets humour them then" exercise

PlymouthMaid1 Tue 07-Mar-17 19:47:16

Bloody ridiculous. I find it terrifying that most people have no idea this is happening.

MaidOfStars Tue 07-Mar-17 19:49:22

For the record, the author is a PhD student researching female-perpetrated sex crimes. One hopes that when she digs down into societal and cultural influences for sex offenders, she remembers to separate by sex, not gender.

ChickenMe Tue 07-Mar-17 20:05:58

Journalist confusing sex and gender.
DM has a headline today - woman charged with rape. A female cannot commit rape because you can only rape with a penis. So it's a man living as or dressed as a woman judging by the pics. But not "a woman".

However, a female with a surgically constructed penis could commit rape.

She's not though, she's a social science PhD student at a really fucking good university.

That's worrying.

I don't trust ANY report any more concerning sexual abuse, child abuse, murder/attempted murder, violent assault etc - where the suspect/perpetrator is described as a "woman".

The recent case of Bethany Hill's gruesome murder really shocked me. I remember when it happened and thought what a horribly cruel premeditated crime - especially for a couple to commit. When i saw the report on the conviction recently thst Kayleigh Woods was male, i realised we really have moved into some Orwellian doublethink shit.

Strangely, I've never heard of a case of that happening. It's almost as if females, regardless of their self identified gender, don't commit anywhere near the amount of violent and sexual crimes as males, trans women or not.

Bambambini Tue 07-Mar-17 20:22:24

I thought a surgically constructed penis didn't work like the real thing. Think it needs a device to try and get some kind of erection. Dare i google ... 😰
