Sorry can't link on phone. BBC article.

Australian woman convicted of an axe attack on 3 people. Pertinent paragraph at the end;-

She testified that her mental health had declined prior to the attack, after she began taking hormones to transition from male to female.

I wonder if they'll end up in a womans prison?

Is this Evie Amanti? Someone tweeted that she was being sentenced today, I think.

Blockyiursekf Fri 18-Jan-19 07:13:31

Yes that's the person.

SunsetBeetch Fri 18-Jan-19 07:15:36

Four and a half years.

SunsetBeetch Fri 18-Jan-19 07:16:54

Ah, I've found the BBC article now.

Due for parole in 2021?
For attempting to kill two people with an axe?

I wonder if they'll end up in a womans prison? All I can find about where they sent Evie say's male prison.

Wtf can these journalists not at least say transwoman? The levels ofbrainwashing required in this whole situation are astonishing.

Brave and stunning.

Badstyley Fri 18-Jan-19 08:23:05

Oh and this never happens of course.

Interesting how a decline in mental health due to hormone treatment was used as an argument by the defence.

NotMeOhNo Fri 18-Jan-19 08:46:42

When this was discussed before on here it was mooted that hormones could make people psychotic, and this was evidence. Interesting. They sound like a totally self absorbed misogynist though.

Forty whacks with a wet noodle, Bart!

Is there any evidence that female hormones make you psychotic?

Is this going to be the new defence of choice for violent transwomen?

‘It was the hormones that made me do it. My hormones make me crazy. It proves I’m a real woman.’

Next it’ll be PMS, because they have periods too.

So I guess I'm sending yet another letter to the BBC today...

He attacked 3 people with an axe. The last bloke was protected by his rucksack. And he also tried to attack s homeless man outside the store.

Far left radical. Hmm now where have I heard that before? hmm

This behaviour looks to me like that of someone who needs to be sectioned on the grounds of serious mental health issues (there's that co-morbidity again). A four year prison term doesn't offer the public a lot of protection.

GerryblewuptheER Fri 18-Jan-19 09:49:41

So basically it was their time of the month? hmm

Cos surgeons and pilots only work three weeks of every month cos hormones make them psychotic....

Fucks sake.

Actually if you read the Fail article, Amanti has had SRS in Thailand so I guess that means no penis.
