The “odd” omission

Day one of Scotland’s heightened war on women:

JK Rowling could be investigated by police for misgendering trans people under Scotland’s new hate crime legislation, an SNP minister has admitted. Siobhian Brown, the SNP’s community safety minister, initially stated that misgendering – for example calling a trans woman “he” – would “not at all” fall foul of the legislation. But after being challenged over calls for JK Rowling to be prosecuted under the Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Act, she then admitted it would be for the police to decide.

Speaking as the Act came into force on Monday, Ms Brown said: “It could be reported and it could be investigated. Whether or not the police would think it was criminal is up to Police Scotland for that.”

Ah yes – pass an insane law criminalizing women who object to laws that criminalize women, and then say it’s up to the poleees to decide which women are actually criminals.

The minister was also challenged over the “odd” omission of women from the list of protected groups included in the legislation. This means that threats made against Rowling and other feminists critical of trans ideology could not be investigated under the Bill. Ms Brown admitted “more work needs to be done” and said a misogyny Bill would be introduced.

Point missed. Why were women ignored in the first place? Why did you abject fucking tools pass a law making it a crime to say men are not women while ignoring the things trans “activists” say about women every minute of every day?

The new legislation covers hatred on the basis of age, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation and transgender identity.

However, an amendment to add sex to the list of protected characteristics at this stage was voted down, despite cross-party MSPs raising concerns about why women were excluded.

What does that tell us?

Nothing good.
