In response to Gary Oliver: Warning: This police safety advice applies only to women with penises, The Duke of Umberland, England wrote:
Have politicians and the police lost their minds?
‘Liverpool and Merseyside Police are able to prioritise a rogue band of women who, armed to the teeth with stickers, are attempting to spread the radical message “Women don’t have penises”.’
In times past the Left would have denounced police action in this case. Here we have women telling us all a fundamental, indisputable, fact: ‘Women don’t have penises’. I say that the Left would have denounced it in the past, basing my judgement on its support for the Suffragettes.
It is now based on the authority of statute that the law does not recognise male and female as fixed categories but as states of mind. Equality Act 2010 s.7(1) states:
‘A person has the protected characteristic of gender reassignment if the person is proposing to undergo, is undergoing or has undergone a process (or part of a process) for the purpose of reassigning the person’s sex by changing physiological or other attributes of sex.’
What these women are now desperately fighting for is this: for all to come back to our senses and return to reality. We have arrived at a point in our culture (supported by law) where we are all compelled to dismiss reality and connect with fantasy.
The ‘Politically Correct’ may find all this amusing; but consider the following: what does a doctor do when faced with a male-female requiring the administration of a drug? Does he administer the dosage prescribed for a male or a female? A police officer requiring a suspect, male-female, to be strip-searched: does he instruct a female colleague to carry out the search? Any one of your readers may arrive at a port accompanied by their wife: what if a male-female officer says: ‘Excuse me sir, I want to carry out an intimate strip-search of your wife?’ Your daughter enters public toilets followed by a male-female stranger: what will you do?
