Stonewall's easy marks
Stonewall's advice means the UK's media and judiciary are empowering and protecting dangerous men
As we reported a month ago, April saw several court trials in the UK of males who identify as women. In at least two of the cases, the defendants, both paedophiles, avoided jail because the judge expressed sympathy for them due to their ‘gender identity’ issues.
Since that article was written, it’s emerged that there were at least two more trials in April involving males in which the media mostly uses female pronouns. And yet again, child abuse is the recurring theme.
At the end of April, ‘Marcia‘ Walker was released from jail despite attacking a prison officer and other acts of violence while in jail, and for being found in possession of pictures of naked children. Marcia said the violence was partly due to his gender dysphoria and the judge, while admitting he was “taking a chance”, actually released him. Walker, who had wanted to be moved to a women’s prison, was originally jailed for raping a four-year-old girl.
The Northern Echo used she / her pronouns throughout its coverage, including phrases such as ‘when efforts were then made to restrain her, Walker shouted “rape”’.
Meanwhile, ‘Rachel’ Newton was jailed for four years and six months for sexually abusing a boy and downloading child abuse images.
YorkshireLive used she / her pronouns throughout its coverage, with phrases such as ‘She was ordered to sign the sex offenders indefinitely and made subject to an indefinite sexual harm prevention order.’
This trend continued in May.
‘Melissa’ Wilson, who was already in prison for child abuse offences, was tried for accessing sexual images of children at a public library. The paedophile, who has six previous convictions for 39 offences dating back to 2008, told the court he now identifies as a woman. The judge said: "Life must be difficult for you."
Liverpool Echo used she / her pronouns throughout its coverage, including extraordinary phrases such as ‘Wilson's probation officer received the letter from Wilson's alter ego, Dan Thompson, detailing how she had bypassed library security systems.’
‘Chloe’ Thompson is also a convicted paedophile, who in May avoided being sent back to jail despite breaching a sexual harm prevention order 11 times. Police found the abuser, who now identifies as a woman, had apps he wasn’t allowed to use, such as TikTok, on his phone.
TeessideLive used she / her pronouns throughout its coverage, including phrases such as ‘Thompson, who had 16 previous convictions for 11 offences, said she did not create the account for "sinister purposes or contacting children"’.
‘Jessica’ Brennan is a child rapist who was tried in May for raping four girls - the youngest was aged four years old - repeatedly over a 17 year period. He was jailed for 22 years. The media reports don’t state when Jessica started identifying as a woman, just that the rapes took place between 1998 and 2016, and that he assumed his new identity after that period.
The Press used she / her pronouns throughout its coverage, including phrases such as ‘The jury found her guilty of a number of sexual assaults’.
‘Mallory’ Wilks, who “identifies as non-binary”, has a history of violence, and has been sentenced to 12 months in prison for more extreme violence. The media, interestingly, largely used he / him pronouns for Mallory, probably due to the absurd picture that accompanied the story.
And ‘Zoe’ Watts was convicted in May of making an improvised explosive device. He also pled guilty (the day before the trial was due to start) to three charges of possessing prohibited weapons and two charges of inappropriately importing goods, namely butterfly knives, following an investigation by Counter Terrorism Policing East Midlands. He was working for Lincolnshire Police at the time of his arrest.
Even though ‘Zoe’ is an open misogynist who posted videos, for example, of himself smashing up watermelons with Germaine Greer’s face on them, the BBC used she/her pronouns throughout its coverage and made no mention of Watt’s real sex, using phrases such as ‘she will be sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court on 29 June’.
These are merely the cases of which we are aware because of local—and, rarely—national media coverage . There were probably more, but we know at least eight trials took place in April and May of men who identify as women, and one of a man who identifies as non-binary.
The media mostly, but not entirely, used their preferred pronouns, and mostly, but not entirely, their new name.
Seven of the nine defendants were convicted paedophiles, the other two were guilty of extreme violence and terrorism.
Their judges expressed sympathy for at least three of them, due to their ‘gender identities’, and two even avoided jail because of this. A third also avoided jail despite repeatedly breaching a sexual harm prevention order.
Psychologically disordered repeat offenders have been finding ways to game the system forever. Now, they’ve discovered a way that requires minimum effort, conceals their identity and may even result in them avoiding prison altogether.
In publishing, politics, academia and sports, trans ideology has given rise to a revolution of mediocre men, but even more worrying is that it has brought about a golden era for predators. They can escape justice and scrutiny, they can access their victims more easily, and the UK’s media and courts, both of whom are heavily influenced by groups like Stonewall, are helping them do so.
