Being a human rights activist both for trans people and women, I guess it’s normal these days to upset some people.
Sadly, though for some, a reasonable debate is not on the agenda, and they turn to hate. The message on this page (technically a hate incident) was sent to me via the contact page via the old Steph’s Place website on December 6th 2022. It was reported to the Police, who have done nothing other than send a letter saying they were sorry that I was a victim.
Trans hate crime has, in the last year, increased by 56%, driven by a media that demonises the trans community and, in particular trans women – aided and abetted by gender-critical celebrities such as J.K. Rowling.
Add to this the death threats I have received are concerning, if not surprising, the difference being if J. K. Rowling got the messages I got, it would be on the front page of all the right-wing press.
