JK Rowling has condemned Police Scotland for “Orwellian” guidance which allows rapists to self-identify as women, as the author became embroiled in a new row over transgender rights.
The Harry Potter writer quoted George Orwell’s dystopian classic 1984 in response to correspondence from Police Scotland, which states that rapes could be recorded as carried out by a woman if the perpetrator “identifies as female”.
What’s the definition of rape?
Under Scottish law, rape is defined as non-consensual penetration with a penis, so it could not be carried out by someone with female anatomy.
Seems pretty open and shut really. Clearly it’s ridiculous too. But then the claim is that the folks really are women, penis and all. Part of society has gone mad upon this subject.
I also think that folk are missing a trick too.
So, the question some are asking is, well, how dangerous is it allowing the ladypenis into formerly women only spaces? Difficult to tell really, isn’t it? The claims of who has done what where are difficult to sort through.
Now we’ve got a simple measure. One to legal standards as well.
So, how many rapes in Scotland committed by women? That’s the number committed by trans people, there’s our measure of danger. I have a feeling that the number’s going to be higher than the trans advocates are going to be happy with.
