Mom arrested and jailed in front of her kids for calling transgender woman a 'man'

  • 1.7K Views

Police arrested and jailed a woman named Kate Scottow, 38, all because she called a transgender woman a 'man' on Twitter. For those who may not be aware, a transgender woman is a biological male who identifies as a woman. The transgender's name is Stephanie Hayden and they're an activist who complained about getting called a man on Twitter. That's what lead to the arrest of Scottow who was actually jailed for seven hours over this.

Scottow pointed out that Hayden is a man, which is correct, but apparently misgendering someone is a crime where Scottow lives in HItchin, Hertfordshire. To make matters worse, the police had confiscated Scottow's electronic devices, such as a computer and mobile phone, and more than two months later, still have not returned them.

Three officers detained Kate Scottow at her home before quizzing her at a police station about an argument with an activist on Twitter over so-called 'deadnaming'.
The 38-year-old, from Hitchin, Hertfordshire, had her photograph, DNA and fingerprints taken and remains under investigation.
More than two months after her arrest on December 1, she has had neither her mobile phone or laptop returned, which she says is hampering her studies for a Masters in forensic psychology.

Scottow wrote on a website called Mumsnet: '" was arrested in my home by three officers, with my autistic ten-year-old daughter and breastfed 20-month-old son present. ' was then detained for seven hours in a cell with no sanitary products (which I said I needed) before being interviewed then later released under investigation ... I was arrested for harassment and malicious communications because I called someone out and misgendered them on Twitter."

The Daily Mail stated that "Mrs Scottow denied harassing or defaming Miss Hayden and said she holds a 'genuine and reasonable belief' that a human 'cannot practically speaking change sex', but Deputy Judge Jason Coppel QC issued an interim injunction that bans her from posting any personal information about Miss Hayden on social media, 'referencing her as a man' or linking her to her 'former male identity."

Does anyone find it odd that misgendering someone who has misgendered themselves is a crime somewhere on this planet?

When a transgender identifies as the opposite gender, then didn't they just misgender themselves first? And if so, then aren't the people who are said to be misgendering them simply correcting them from the first misgendering?
