The dystopian nightmare spoke of in the 80’s is upon us. Luckily America has The Bill of Rights that help protects people against these kinds of injustices. This story now has over 80 thousand shares on Facebook and has gone completely viral in just one day after the story broke in the UK.
While in front her her children a mother was arrested and locked up for seven hours for referring to a transgender woman as a man online.
Kate Scottow was detained by three officers at her home before quizzing her at a police station about an argument with an “activist” on Twitter over so-called ‘deadnaming’. It’s clear that Liberalism no longer represents its definition any longer. Liberalism is fascism.
The Daily Mail said that 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.
Writing on online forum Mumsnet, Mrs Scottow – who has also been served with a court order that bans her from referring to her accuser as a man – claimed: ‘I was arrested in my home by three officers, with my autistic ten-year-old daughter and breastfed 20-month-old son present.
‘I 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.’
Confirming the arrest, Hertfordshire Police said: ‘We take all reports of malicious communication seriously.’
The case is the latest where police have been accused of being heavy-handed in dealing with people who go online to debate gender issues.
Sitcom writer Graham Linehan was given a verbal harassment warning by West Yorkshire Police after transgender activist Stephanie Hayden reported him for referring to her by her previous names and pronouns on Twitter.
It was complaints by Miss Hayden that led both to the arrest of, and injunction against, Mrs Scottow.
High Court papers obtained by The Mail on Sunday detail how Mrs Scottow is accused of a ‘campaign of targeted harassment’ against Miss Hayden, allegedly motivated by her ‘status as a transgender woman’.
The papers claim that, as a ‘toxic’ debate raged online over plans to allow people to ‘self-ID’ as another gender, Mrs Scottow tweeted ‘defamatory’ messages about Miss Hayden.
She is also alleged to have used accounts in two names to ‘harass, defame, and publish derogatory and defamatory tweets’ about Miss Hayden, including referring to her as male, stating she was ‘racist, xenophobic and a crook’ and mocking her as a ‘fake lawyer’.
Mrs Scottow rightfully denied harassing or defaming Miss Hayden and said she holds a ‘genuine and reasonable belief’ that a human ‘cannot practically speaking, change sex’. Still the Liberal 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’. I think it’s time to switch to Gab for her social media and leave Twitter in the trash heap with the rest of the self entitled fascistic Liberals.
Good on Mrs Scottow for declining to comment, if she did they would probably go after for that too.
The story spread like wild fire on the internet even Timcast felt he had to weigh in on the issue:
