However, for critics, such debates are beside the point.

Russell Findlay, a Conservative member of the Scottish Parliament, said, “This rapist decided he was no longer a man only after he appeared in court for rape.” “We now have a completely perverse situation where a Scottish court refers to someone who it says identifies as female by using ‘her gender’ to rape two vulnerable women. We The SNP warned of the imperative of this happening when the Gender Self-ID Act was passed, but that it actually happened is deeply worrying and an affront to victims.”

Findlay was referring to a law passed by the Scottish Parliament last month that allows people under the age of 16 to obtain a gender identity certificate to confirm their change of legal sex after living in their new gender for just three months.

Many women in prison themselves have been abused and have sustained injuries over the years. … I am very concerned about the safety of women prisoners, with whom a convicted rapist was kept Is.”
