Gender identity politics seems out of hand here in the U.S., where men are identifying as women in order to dominate female sports. But that’s nothing compared to the United Kingdom where a mom was arrested for calling a transwoman a man.
“Mrs. Scottow, 38, will face magistrates on charges of making malicious communications over social media comments about trans campaigner Stephanie Hayden.
The Crown Prosecution Service said she had been charged over ‘persistent’ messages designed to cause ‘annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety’ to another person between September 2018 and May 2019
Three officers arrested Mrs. Scottow at her home in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, in December last year as her then ten-year-old daughter and 20-month-old son looked on.
She was taken to a police station where she says she was detained in a cell for up for seven hours before being questioned.”
“She wrote: “I was arrested in my home by three officers, with my autistic ten-year-old daughter and breastfed 20-month-old son present.
“I was then detained for seven hours in a cell with no sanitary products (which I said I needed) before being interviewed then later released under investigation…
“I was arrested for harassment and malicious communications because I called someone out and misgendered them on Twitter.”
“She was subsequently charged over ”persistent” messages which were intended to cause ”annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety” to another person over a number of months, according to the Crown Prosecution Service. She is now due to appear at Stevenage Magistrates’ Court on September 18.
“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Ms Scottow are now active and that she has a right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.”
It sounds like this transwoman, Stephanie Hayden, should not get on the internet. Twitter and the internet are supposed to be about free speech. It is not a “safe space.”
