Qn: What's the evidence transwomen exhibit male pattern criminality?

An odd framing of a question - surely it should be what's the evidence they *wouldn't* have male pattern criminality.

Nevertheless here's the Swedish study @GoonerProf cited /1
This is a population-based study using records from a variety of registers in Sweden in 2011. They found 324 transgender people that had undertaken sex reassignment surgery between 1973 and 2003. /2
It's a relatively small study of transsexuals - not self-identifying transgender people as Kathleen said @Docstockk

A total of 60 crimes were identified, 14 of those classified as violent crimes. Eight violent crimes had been committed by transwomen and six by transmen. /3
