A young woman tricked into having sex with a transsexual has told how she has been left traumatised.
But men and women are what they believe themselves to be aren’t they? Bruce is Caitlyn because he says so and that’s that.
The victim told the court how she has been left devastated by what happened.
She said: “What happened is still very much affecting my life.
“I was lied to and manipulated into falling in love with someone who deceived me. That has hurt me emotionally and physically.
“Finding out that Kyran Lee/Kyran Scott was a female shocked me to the core. I truly believed Kyran was a man.
“Everything I know about Kyran Scott is a lie. What happened to me was wrong. Kyran manipulated me, deceived me, and lied to me and had sex with me.
“I don’t think he fully understands the pain he has caused me. I don’t feel that he feels any remorse. I don’t think I will ever be able to forgive him for what he has done.”
And isn’t rather the point that he isn’t?
And to be vaguely serious for a moment. Presumably at some point in this process she really does become he. That is the claim at least. And then this deception, this assault by penetration (which is the charge), would not actually be something that was prosecutable. Because bloke shagging bird isn’t a crime. But, apparently, bird lying that they are a bloke to shag bird might be one. But, so we are told, at some point bird does become bloke and we’re all horrible people for claiming that this isn’t so.
But what’s the point at which that not a crime occurs? And, obviously, is that the same point at which we’re all not horrible people for calling her a bird?
