Suella Braverman angered by trans-inclusive campaign, warns police to focus on ‘real crimes’

The Daily Telegraph are running a piece in their Monday edition about Suella Braverman’s latest nonsense while they also jump on the JK Rowling misinfo wagon.

Making Priti Patel look like a woman with compassion was a mission Suella Braverman took to with all the eagerness of raging bigot being given one of the most important roles in the UK Government.

As Home Secretary she has already been recorded talking about how she dreams of sending asylum seekers to Rwanda, where they will remain even in the (likely) event of their asylum being granted.

This is a woman who does not believe that humans have a right to live a life free from torture yet is herself so scared of unisex loos she carries around paper in case she needs to fashion an impromptu sign.

Now, Braverman has taken exception to a police campaign that she believes suggested that deliberately deadnaming a trans person could be a hate crime.

The Telegraph’s story:

Braverman rebukes ‘politically correct’ trans hate-crime push The Daily Telegraph 17 Oct 2022 By Charles Hymas Home Affairs editor ‘The police need to enforce actual laws and fight actual crimes’ SUELLA BRAVERMAN has criticised a “politically correct” police campaign after a force suggested calling a trans person by their former name could be a hate crime. The Home Secretary accused Leicestershire Police of undermining public confidence and told the force to focus on solving “actual crimes”. Leicestershire Police tweeted the campaign slogan, “You can report hate crime via Stamp it Out”, above a picture of a transgender woman. The woman was quoted as saying: “I get called by my previous male name on purpose but that’s not who I am. It can be really hurtful especially when it’s seen as a joke.” Ms Braverman tweeted in response: “This week I have seen confusion amongst police forces about what constitutes a ‘hate crime’. The police need to enforce actual laws and fight actual crimes. Freedom of speech must be protected and a proportionate approach must be taken.” She added that officers who allow “politically correct campaigns” would have to justify them to her. Her comments follow a letter to the police chiefs in all 43 forces in England and Wales. In her letter, Ms Braverman said there was a “perception that the police have had to spend too much time on symbolic gestures, than actually fighting criminals. This must change. Initiatives on diversity and inclusion should not take precedence over common-sense policing”. She later criticised Sussex Police for “playing identity politics” after the force said it would not tolerate hateful comments made on social media about a child abuser’s gender identity.

The Telegraph also run a piece on JK Rowling’s factually inaccurate rant from the Sunday Times:

Rowling: Blame FM if trans law causes attacks Author says First Minister will be responsible if letting Scots self-identify their gender leads to sex assaults The Daily Telegraph17 Oct 2022By Daniel Sanderson SCOTTISH CORRESPONDENT THE writer JK Rowling has said Nicola Sturgeon will be personally responsible if her overhaul of Scotland’s transgender laws leads to attacks on girls, as she accused the country’s First Minister of “riding roughshod” over women’s rights. The Harry Potter author said that Ms Sturgeon would be to blame for cases of “voyeurism, sexual harassment, assault or rape” which she expects as a result of allowing Scots to change their legal sex simply by signing a declaration. It is the latest escalation in a remarkable rift between the First Minister and one of Scotland’s most prominent residents. Earlier this month, Ms Rowling shared a picture of herself wearing a T-shirt that branded Ms Sturgeon a “destroyer of women’s rights”. Writing in The Sunday Times, Ms Rowling accused Ms Sturgeon of making the “extraordinary” suggestion that it was transphobic to claim that predatory men could claim to identify as female to gain access to women’s spaces. “Sturgeon loftily dismisses anyone who fears her new legislation could be wide open to abuse,” she said. “Nobody but the very naive can fail to be aware that predatory men are capable of going to great lengths to gain easy access to victims and have often sought out professions or special status that offer camouflage for their activities.” The Scottish Government is pushing legislation through Holyrood that would make it easier for Scots to change their legal sex. While currently a trans person needs a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria and to live in their “acquired gender” for two years to change their birth certificate, Ms Sturgeon wants to implement a “self-identification” system. The age at which someone can apply for a gender recognition certificate (GRC) would be lowered from 18 to 16, while the period in which someone must live in their acquired gender would fall from two years to three months. Ms Sturgeon has described herself as a “passional life-long feminist” and has dismissed the concerns of those concerned at her plans as “not valid”. Those supporting the reforms claim they will make no difference to the ability of male-bodied individuals to access women’s spaces. But opponents insist that a government endorsement of the notion that gender identity trumps biological sex will, in practice, make it harder to exclude males from women’s spaces. “Rarely in politics is it easy to draw a direct line from a single policy decision to the harm it’s done, but in this case, it will be simple,” Ms Rowling added. “If any woman or girl suffers voyeurism, sexual harassment, assault or rape in consequence of the Scottish Government’s lax new rules, the blame will rest squarely with those at Holyrood who ignored safeguarding experts and women’s campaigners. “And nobody should be held to higher account than the First Minister, the “real feminist” who’s riding roughshod over the rights of women and girls.” A spokesman for the Scottish Government said its reforms did not conflict with the Equality Act and the “rights and protections” it offered to women.
