Supreme Court reported for T***phobia

the awe-inspiring Sarah has reported the Supreme Court for transphobia in relation to the transman applying to be named as father on the baby's birth certificate as a third party bystander.

The judgement in the court case satisfied the conditions for defining it a Hate Incident so Sarah has reported it as such and will be waiting for the response.

If she is criticised for wasting police time then she will be asking why all the malicious and frivolous reports being made against her are not also deemed to be a waste of police time, and after repeated requests, these records held against her and previously without her knowledge are not being deleted.

If not and the complaint is upheld, that will be an interesting test of the Hate Crime/Incident reporting. Will it mean that any judgement made in court that 'particular groups' don't like/deem offensive is automatically a Hate Crime/Incident??

Law will eat itself.

I suspect it won’t be recorded.

Does anyone find the name of the hate crime recording system a bit weird?

True Vision.

Is it really called True Vision? Why??!

Sounds mighty evangelical.

I thought it was a joke. But apparently not. Liking the all seeing eye of Sauron.

I have often wondered, given what has happened to people as a result of not believing humans can change sex and simply following jk Rowling on twitter can cost see you hauled in front of HR, how, when even the supreme Court doesn't uphold the complete capitulation , the rest can be allowed to happen...

Until the definition of hate crime expands to include misogynistic crimes, how are women to take it seriously? Sex is the last bastion. While anyone is free to behave in a verbally abusive or bigoted way to another simply because they are of the opposite sex - yes, either way - we have barely begun to address hate crime.

I don't think I would enjoy playing poker or chess against Sarah grin
I think her opponent is going to need a couple of extra queens on the board.

Clappy. Clappy!

But judges and the legal system have immunity from liability, so even if this qualified as a hate crime they can't be prosecuted. The reason the reports against her are not a waste of police time is because she, as a private citizen, can be liable for hate crimes. Courts cannot.

Very funny

highame Tue 17-Nov-20 15:24:59

She is making a point, but I'm not sure this is the best way to do it.

She's shining a light 💡
