Your reminder from Police Scotland that they are not obliged to investigate crimes against women with the same seriousness as they do those below (which incl men going to Rock Horror)

Convenient for them, eh?
As @polblonde is saying on WH the police share many of the misogynistic attitudes of the perpetrators.

"Many men in the police do not believe women, they think they tell lies"

We really need some training in the force.
For those replying to them quoting the EA, this is Hate Crime where sex was deliberately excluded.

@Gedk Where to begin...

This must be the only condition in the world which is simultaneously not a medical condition, yet demands urgent treatment. Which cannot be diagnosed, indeed does not require any diagnosis, but can result in irreversible procedures./
@Gedk Where the people who require it are said to be so troubled that they will take their own lives if they are not permitted treatment, yet therapists are not allowed to fully explore - as they would with any other patient exhibiting self-harm ideation - co-morbidities or causes./
@Gedk Where surgery or irreversible hormone treatments (which have been proven to shorten life expectancy) are demanded on want with no understanding of the root of the body dysmorphia.

Something that would be anathema in the treatment of any other manifestation./

1. This is quite a column. It is in response to the excellent, rightly angry, article by @holyroodmandy for @HolyroodDaily which we highly recommend reading. Mr Giugliano is not named but in his over-blown prose, it was "character assassination"…
2. It is worth reminding ourselves of the original tweet which caused many veteran campaigners on women's rights to respond with indignation.

Apparently, accusing women of not caring about abusive men before GRA reform is "uncomfortable home truths"
3. Mr Giugliano repeats many of the myths that a generation raised after their rights were won now parrot.

He believe trans people "often led the charge" to win LGB rights, erasing the man and women who really did do the work and are now speaking out about concerns.

Much pearl clutching at @StirUni where "hate crimes" are occurring.

So shocking is the material, that the bold investigative reporter dare not reproduce it, but, Brig (student rag) had sight of "materials which contain references to women's rights". Stay safe out there!
There is a serious point here. At a time of an epidemic of violence against women, @brignewspaper and the students of @StirUni thinks that women's rights are hateful & dangerous and anyone who believes in upholding women's safety needs to be rooted out & reported to police.
We received an email from the student journo who demanded we "confirm or deny" we were responsible for this material.

He claimed "any further comment... would be welcomed and included within our article".

We like to help, so we did reply. Spoiler it wasn't included.

Mhairi Hunter's tip for politicians is to use 1984 less as a warning and more of a "how to" manual.
Presumably "adult" also means 12 year olds in this brave new world.
No, we really don't. And if Sturgeon's close advisor thinks we do, it is no wonder the FM is on such a mess.

Children In Scotland a charity paid £1m per year by the public want the Gov to allow 12 year olds to be able to change the sex on birth certificates without parental consent.

As Trina Budge says, our children deserve better.…
We recommend that @cisweb read this powerful account on how the gender industry in the US is failing children with autism or depression & medicalising them for life.

Brain maturity does not occur until mid 20s. Why damage children in this way?…
This week, we learnt guidelines for sentencing of people under 25 take account "that the brain takes some time to mature and young people have the opportunity to change as they develop intellectually and emotionally"

But gender is fixed at 12?…

In 2019 @NHSGGC told us that no young people below the age of 18 under the care of Sandyford Gender Identity Clinic @SandyfordNHSGGC were referred for surgeries.
It later came to light that this was not true. The previous year, according to a publication in a child mental health journal, a 16 yo had been referred, accepted, and was on the waiting list for a double mastectomy.…
Not willing to wait the few months, the surgery was arranged privately. Despite the surgeon's reservations about the patient's young age, viewing them as an adolescent and not an adult, the surgery proceeded after consultation with staff at Sandyford.
