Amy Desir of @ManFRIDAY_ transphobic direct action group just lying on @BBCPM yesterday that a trans woman prisoner had been sexually assaulting other women in jail. Women prisoners actually more at risk of sexual assault by non-trans women abusers inside independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-n…
Sexual offending by women against other women more common than people think - and often minimised by some feminists when it doesn’t fit their ideological, and especially transphobic, agenda about victims and perpetrators scientificamerican.com/article/sexual…
We need more research but this Howard League report describes the horrific practice of ‘decrutching’ where woman hiding drugs in vagina to bring in to prison is pinned down by other women on arrival & often brutally injured/traumatised in process howardleague.org/wp-content/upl…
Even more women prisoners, often survivors of sexual violence already, are traumatised further by excessive use of strip-search in prison independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-n…
Women prison staff also at risk of sexual assaults from prisoners. Overcrowding and severely stressful environment at the now closed Pentonville prison had evidence of this. Overcrowding & severe stress still huge issues across prison estate standard.co.uk/news/crime/two…
And of course the other absolute lie told by Desir, ManFriday & the rest of the transphobes & ‘gender-critical’ feminists is that most trans women in prisoners are sexual offenders. Utterly dangerous transphobic rubbish! independent.co.uk/voices/41-per-…
We know the vast majority of reported sexual offences are committed by men. We know that the vast majority of actual sexual offences are underreported - for many reasons - not being believed/not recognising it as abuse/embarrassment/minimisation etc. Magnified for women offenders
Ignoring/minimising sexual offending by women, even if majority offences committed by men, does survivors no service & perpetuates the myths that are barriers for victims to reporting. It’s convenient that by ignoring this, those with a transphobic agenda continue to scaremonger
The Grand Matriarch of one strand of 1970s feminism, beloved of transphobic feminists everywhere, demotes rape to little more than men ‘being lazy’. How dare the transphobic feminists suggest that it’s trans people who are the risk when Greer spouts this!
