Wherever gender self-certification or self-id is in force, women's spaces are violated by men who identify themselves as women - we said this the other day in the Senate hearing. In addition to bathrooms, changing rooms, hospital wards, prisons, work and political quotas, sports and so on, there are also statistics, and in every sector. Gender-critical feminism is also accused of spreading fake news. We have also been accused by centre-left senators who support the Zan ddl and gender identity.
Well, here is The Times, publishing a petition from Scottish feminism.
In April The Times has reported the news that the Scottish police had confirmed that a man accused or convicted of rape would have could be registered as a woman. Police Scotland had described its registration policy as follows: "If the male who self-identifies as a woman penetrates a victim's vagina, anus or mouth with his penis or attempts to do so, Police Scotland will record this as attempted rape or rape, and the male who self-identifies as a woman may be recorded as a woman on police records".
Theoretically, even women, in borderline cases, can be convicted of rape. But in the last ten years in Scotland all convictions for rape or attempted rape were recorded as committed by males, except one. And further investigation showed that this case was a mistake. Accurate registration of biological sex can be problematic in relation to aggression in general, but theor rape by definition reveals a male body. The privacy arguments often used in other contexts here are not tenable. Although in theory rape can be committed with a surgically constructed penis, there is no evidence of such cases anywhere.
Sex registration in these cases is important for the truthfulness of statistics, which affects research and policy development. The veracity of the media is a further problem. Press reports refer to what is recorded by police and courts. If even a few cases of crime were recorded and reported as being committed by females rather than males, it could misleadingly suggest that female crime patterns are changing.
The Scottish government has stated that it sees no need to record data on biological sex in these cases. Recent government proposals suggest referring to gender identity as a simple substitute for sex when collecting data. But recording biological sex would not preclude recording gender identity as well, if necessary.
After trying other avenues without success, inWe have decided to raise the issue with the Scottish Parliament's Public Petitions Committee, view the police statement. The Commission can set policies for the criminal justice system, gather evidence on how they have developed and give guidance to all bodies involved.
It is not clear how not registering the biological sex can make it easier for anyone, while it is clear that, if there are ever any relevant cases in Scotland, there could be serious problems. We hope that the Commission can take action to prevent this possibility and ensure that accurate and reliable data are recorded.
