Another cis woman convicted of rape but gender critics will blame trans people
According to gender critical feminists, cis women cannot be convicted of rape, therefore the 400+ women who are currently in prison serving sentences for rape must be trans women.
On 22 December 2021, head teacher Julie Morris, 44, was sentenced to 13 years and four months in prison after pleading guilty to 18 child sexual abuse charges and two counts of rape for offences, with her partner, against a girl who was 8 at the time. They even recorded their crimes.
Morris also admitted three counts of taking indecent images of a child, one of engaging in sexual communication with a child, and one of possessing indecent images of a child.
She will enter prison, as a cis women, who is also a rapist.
In gender critic circles, she will simply become yet another ‘trans rapist’ in the stats.
This is important for a number of reasons.
Firstly, GC feminists say that there are over 400 trans women rapists in prison, when this simply isn’t true. There aren’t even 400 trans people in prison and the number of those who are incarcerated for sexual offences is a tiny fraction of that.
This deliberate misinterpretation of the stats is crucial to their campaign to demonise trans people. It’s far easier to take away the rights of sex offenders, right? Who could argue with that? You are, after all, just ‘protecting women’.
Secondly, they then use this fake stat to prove why trans people, especially women, should not be allowed access to single-sex-spaces. Cis women, they maintain, cannot rape (some even assert that cis women are never a threat to other women or children) nor can they be charged or convicted or rape.
“What makes this case even more concerning is the fact that Julie Morris held a position of trust as a teacher – she held the role of safeguarding lead – and yet she saw fit in her own personal life to completely disregard all of the responsibilities and the trust that her role held,” DCI Bev Hyland said.
Thirdly, while they focus on the illusion they have created of the trans woman as a rapist, they distract from the very real abuse that women, cis or trans, actually experience.
They claim they are worried for the safety of women in prisons, but only cis women. They would like trans women in men’s prisons, where they don’t care if they are regularly abused and raped.
They don’t care about cis female sex abusers, who are also housed in women’s prisons women, nor do they seemingly care about the systematic abuse of prisoners that happens at the hands of those in charge of their care and protection.
Last year, The Times, a paper that could be rightly called incredibly hostile to trans rights, stated that seven out of 124 sex attacks that took place in prison were by trans women.
The Ministry of Justice said: “Since 2010, out of the 124 sexual assaults that occurred in the female [prison] estate a total of seven were against females in custody perpetrated by transgender individuals.” The Times then added “It is not known what gender the attackers had been born.”
As GCs like to remind us, trans people represent around 0.5% of the population, so the answer there is likely be ‘hardly any’ rather than what The Times would like you to believe.
This is, of course, horrendous. One is too many, but while the Times article discussed, at length, the danger trans women pose, they completely ignore the 117 attacks on women that were not committed by someone they could label (and then misgender) as ‘trans’.
You won’t hear famous authors or sports stars tweeting about Julie Morris.
Or those 117 attacks.
But remember, they only want to ‘protect women’.
