47%! How can they even attempt to justify that?

Wow. At least they're woke though. Woke Yorkshire Police.

So women with concerns around the gender act are ordered to stay away from Manchester. And the police back this?

As such a woman who regularly visits Manchester, I'm rather frightened by this - Greater Manchester Police tweeting support for hatred of women because of our fears, eh?

From the Daily Mail article:

The worst offender was West Yorkshire Police, which dismissed 47 per cent of crimes reported in 2017 after an initial assessment.

Well, duh. They are too busy supporting TRAs to, you know, actually investigate real crimes like burglary and sexual assault.

I was thinking the same. I go to quite a lot of away football matches, so usually one of either City or United.

Might I get stopped, or even arrested? And if I join the away end chanting of "we support our local team", or something more salty, when at Old Trafford, would that also constitute hate speech. Or are Manchester football fans not protected in the same way?

It would be useful if the police could make a more general statement of who they allow in their city.

Greater Manchester Police - where men's feelings are put before safeguarding women and children.

I have to say, as an Old Trafford regular, that you're on dodgy ground with that one! In an average crowd of more than 70 thousand (e.g. in Saturday attendance was over 74K), at least 55 thousand are Mancs living in Manchester and a lot of others (like me) are Mancs in exile.

Cracks me up when Palace supporters and the like start singing it.

I've raised this on my local labour supporters page and have been told my post is transphobic. By a man, of course. My post merely focused on the rights of women and girls. How this is transphobic I'm not sure but I've asked him and will wait with bated breath Grin

I'm not a footy fan but hasn't one of the Manchester Clubs decided to go 'gender neutral' (they mean mixed sex) with its stands?

Something's going on in Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds. It sounds fishy to me.

Vicky, I am sure supporters will have worked out something more fruity for Morinho on the coach on the way up. Presumably ok as long as he does not come out as transgender before then. Or are all men in Manchester super sensitive to what they might perceive as criticism?

toilets I mean! Although stands may be appropriate if the ladies' are converted to mixed sex..

Manchester United I think, within 4 tweets the response from fans was 'Tran United'

Does this apply to the many shops in Manchester? Presumably we must use other shopping centres instead.

I think, in fairness, we need to make it clear to those businesses we can no longer use that we are not boycotting them; we have simply been told by the police to stay away from them.

The striking thing is in their original tweet - the people they want 'off their turf' are people campaigning to keep the law as it is. The stickers/leaflets etc they are responding to is part of a campaign to keep the law as it is. They are setting themselves against those who are in favour of the current law. The law that the police have sworn to uphold.

Maybe they quite like policing hate crime as it's an easy collar for them and they're all on targets now aren't they?
Any muslim posters here? Why not report a hate crime - being forced to accept men in your spaces and being called names because you are opposed to that is anti-muslim, right?
I think it's pretty anti-lesbian. I might complain based on that, exclusion by default. Many terfs are lesbians, many lesbians are terfs, and we are being excluded by the police. My political stance is socially unacceptable to the police but this doesn't affect men who mock trans people, just women who want to discuss the law.

Advice, please. I want to write and ask if I'm welcome in the city I used to call home - whom would be the best person (or is it more than one) I should write to ask?

Who told them that being GC was tantamount to genocide?

Is the the G and the C? Is that it?

I suspect civilians are let loose on the twitter account? Young male type civilians?

Lesbians who say no to dick are "terfs".

So the police force is saying that lesbians are not welcome in manchesters gay scene unless they get with cock?

And that they will remove them from "their turf" if they don't comply?

I am tempted to contact Visit Manchester tourism
www.visitmanchester.com/
mailto:[email protected]

to ask for clarification.

If their police don’t want TERFs on their turf, what do they feel about culturally conservative overseas tourists. And who is there to protect people from the police.

Just a reminder that the Woman's Place meeting in Hastings had a bomb threat, and that very shortly afterwards there was a news story about potential explosive materials found in St Leonards, although whether this is actually connected has not been confirmed as far as I know. Still bomb threats alone count as terrorism when they're made with a political motivation.

www.theargus.co.uk/news/16294758.potentially-explosive-materials-found-in-house-in-bexhill-road-st-leonards/

So Greater Manchester Police are aligning themselves with terrorists.
