Dr Adrian Harrop's revenge porn bullying

(191 Posts)

Even by Harrop's standards this is particularly despicable.

A couple of TRAs engaged in a twitter discussion saying that Caroline Farrow looks like a man (because saying a transwoman looks like a man when they do is a hate crime but saying a woman does when they don't is banter). And this led to a conversation that there are compromising photos of Farrow.

Harrop then joined the discussion, implying that he has seen these photos and will send them to anyone who asks via direct message. This is in breach of revenge porn legislation and the ethics of being a doctor.

Farrow called the police last night over this harassment - but Harrop seems to have got worse and has tweeted that he's tracking her menstrual cycle

I can't believe the GMC isn't doing anything about Harrop.

Findumdum1 Mon 13-Jan-20 08:46:14

Surely the GMC need to know about that? Or is he no longer a doctor?

Here's Farrow saying she's called the police about Harrop, and Harrop's comment about her menstrual cycle twitter.com/CF_Farrow/status/1216471744938156032?s=19

This is awful. Why are TRAs so obsessed with Caroline? I don’t agree with much of what she says, but she is always polite and respectful. She doesn’t deserve any of this. Nobody does really. sad

Eugh. I don't know much about him tbh, but I had a look at his twitter and he made my skin crawl in the same way that Yaniv does. Just a creep.

CaptainKirksSpikeyGhost Mon 13-Jan-20 08:50:16

The GMC will not care, the only thing they adviced him to do was remove "Doctor" from his Twitter feed,l.
To put it simply they have no power.

I wonder what Adrian’s friends and family think of this behavior? I couldn’t be mates with someone so nasty, and if he were my brother I’d disown him.

One would hope that this photo - if it actually exists as described and is being passed around Twitter PMs - does not share private material, which for the purposes of law is:

private materials are those showing anything not usually seen in public. Sexual material not only covers images that show the pubic region, but anything that a reasonable person would consider to be sexual so this could be a picture of someone who is engaged in sexual behaviour or posing in a sexually provocative way

Because the maximum sentence is two years in prison.

He’s utterly vile. The sheer nastiness is off the scale.

Whatsnewpussyhat Mon 13-Jan-20 09:16:30

He really does hate women.

megletthesecond Mon 13-Jan-20 09:18:21

I can't believe he's still a doctor. He's had a public nasty streak for years.

RoyalCorgi Mon 13-Jan-20 09:24:47

What on earth is he trying to imply with the comment about the full moon? Surely he isn't one of those men stupid enough to think that women's periods are controlled by the moon?

I went to save the whole twitter thread in one go but someone go there before me:

Adrian's LinkedIn profile shows his current employers.

Liverpool women in particular should be aware that if they need Out of Hours care, Adrian may well be the one providing it.

AbsintheFriends Mon 13-Jan-20 09:38:49

Quite apart from anything else, the demonstrable outrage at a woman's bedroom being 'untidy and unhoovered' (whoever this woman is, and whether or not this photo exists.)

Women are responsible for creating domestic order, and any who don't are clearly disgusting sluts and should expect to be shamed.

EwwSprouts Mon 13-Jan-20 09:53:55

Not sure if he's referring to her cycle or it's a sort of blue light anecdotal joke referencing the moon & impact on mental stability. Medical studies don't prove it but easy to find similar comments on eg UK cop humour. twitter.

Women are responsible for creating domestic order, and any who don't are clearly disgusting sluts and should expect to be shamed.

It's funny 'banter' because there are many TRAs that seem to actually believe that GC feminists like strict gender roles and want to keep them. Because they don't actually engage their brains with what we say and write - they don't want to listen.

Imagine believing that feminists think that women should all be the stereotype of '50s housewives'!

fuckitywhy Mon 13-Jan-20 09:58:27

He hates women - but deep down so do a fuck of a lot of men.

Even the ones who say all the right things can come out with some incredible things sometimes.

littlbrowndog Mon 13-Jan-20 09:59:50

Unhoovered bedroom. Every lol ever

ImFineThankYouSusan Mon 13-Jan-20 10:25:17

Adrian Harrop, for example, is a twat.

So is Joss Prior.

ScrimshawTheSecond Mon 13-Jan-20 10:30:55

What is wrong with this man?

DickKerrLadies Mon 13-Jan-20 10:39:18

Personally, I don't like using the word twat for really horrible people - I'm on a one woman mission to try and bring it down a few levels on the swear scale - 'I twatted my elbow on the door knob and it really fucking hurt' as an example.

I prefer MN-approved terms such as cockwomble or wankbadger.

So we could say that Adrian Harrop is behaving like a wankbadger.

Michelleoftheresistance Mon 13-Jan-20 10:39:41

Considering the police will call people up to 'check their thinking' if a TRA feels slighted, and TRAs ring up employers at the drop of a hat, why is there not serious police involvement and a restraining order against this individual whose stability is looking increasingly doubtful, and who would now score quite highly on a risk assessment by Women's Aid?

There's been mutters for years that this lot will egg each other on and escalate until a woman is killed.

JesusMaryAndJosepheen Mon 13-Jan-20 10:48:20

Joss Prior is unfortunate. So much is not right, must be a terrible cross to bear.
