Campaigners claim

Problem at all?

Rape suspects are able to self-identify as female, it was revealed after a freedom of information request by a feminist policy think-tank.

Police Scotland said that if a rape or attempted rape was perpetrated by a “male who self-identifies as a woman . . . the male who self-identifies as a woman would be expected to be recorded as a female on relevant police systems.”

Campaigners claim that the position could lead to a “distortion” in society’s understanding of crime and the measures needed to tackle it.

“Campaigners claim” – of course it would lead to a distortion. If you falsify the stats so that it looks as if some (or many or all) rapes are perpetrated by women when actually it’s men who call themselves women (perhaps for this purpose alone) then obviously that’s a distortion.
