DCC Julie Cook is making a fucking joke of the police, policing pronouns.

The bit she wrote about daily persecutions is she not talking about women???

Where's she getting her ill-informed stats from to not be standing up there supporting women, and doing something about their murder?

No, no...its all about the fucking pronouns.

Yes, you are making a mockery of policing.

There is real actual violence going on.

I love the tweet about calling the police cos of the literal grammatical violence grin grin

So glad to see so many sensible replies. She thinks everyone is stupid
Her mistake, again.

* So glad to see so many sensible replies*

Mostly, it appears, from blokes. So maybe they won't get deleted.

Yes, what a sad thought thats what its come to, or feels like for sure

Findumdum1 Thu 17-Oct-19 00:56:50

How can you educate a pronoun? God she's, well, uneducated.

TruthOnTrial Thu 17-Oct-19 00:59:14

It is fucking literal grammatical violence

TruthOnTrial Thu 17-Oct-19 00:59:51

Should we report it on 101? Or call 999?

I'm sure we're all very relieved that the pronoun police are out policing pronouns.

I don't know how I'd sleep at night without being safe in the knowledge that people's pronouns are respected. What's the odd mugging, rape, burglary, or car theft matter, compared to this important police work?

This is a corker. grin Thank you OP.

"Can you charge yourself with wasting police time?"

"Actual real life grammar police."

"I feel like I'm living inside an enormous prank."

I think this is what is must feel like to be living in a psychosis! Although, I keep having this sense of this can't be real which tells me its more neurosis?!? So confused

MagneticSingularity Thu 17-Oct-19 01:12:07

Welp, that went down like a lead balloon. I almost feel sorry for I mean him or is it them?

Actually it occurs to me that if misgendering is literal violence, getting a cop’s pronouns wrong equates to an assault on a police officer. <worries>
Maybe I should get a lawyer? Or is Pronouns Day like the Purge and it all gets forgiven and forgotten tomorrow?

TruthOnTrial Thu 17-Oct-19 01:13:11

Pronoun amnesties you mean? Hmmm...

zebrasdontwearbras Thu 17-Oct-19 01:13:19

TruthonTrial - YES! I feel exactly the same. It's making me feel crazy.

Findumdum1 Thu 17-Oct-19 01:17:37

This was funny on that thread grin

Christ what will the French some when this lunacy spreads? Their entire language is based on gendering and therefore probably misgendering things and people!

Findumdum1 Thu 17-Oct-19 01:21:38

The replies on that thread are hilarious 😀

AndromacheHelena Thu 17-Oct-19 02:38:15

Same in Italian. We're having a ton of trouble at home because my dining table identifies as a motorcycle and keeps accusing us of misgendering it.

Fallingirl Thu 17-Oct-19 03:00:31

Most of the comments concern the police wasting time on this nonsense, when there are plenty of actual crimes in need of policing. This is, of course, well deserved.

But on a more serious note, I am actually horrified at the implication that if a woman is raped or assaulted by a man claiming female pronouns, the victim would be compelled to talk about her inserting her penis into the her vagina/anus/mouth.

This is the police collaborating in coercive control, which, ironically, is also crime.

Thank you for sharing this OP - made my day lol!

"Help, help, I'm being attacked by grammatical mistakes!" Genius gringrinwine

Maria MacLachlan, the woman who was attacked at Speaker’s Corner, was forced to describe her attacker as ‘she’ during the subsequent trial.

If I get arrested can I identify as innocent?

DCC Julie Cooke is the Police Chiefs LGBT+ Lead

Why do trans people get to call us cis and we just have to accept that, but we're the ones that are accused of a crime if we point out the biological realities?
