Cops should be patrolling the streets, not our pronouns

IT IS a damning indictment of a supposedly civilized country that the majority of women in Britain do not feel safe walking the streets alone at night.

Meanwhile, law enforcement seem more interested in policing our pronouns than easing our fears of being attacked.

Sussex Police have had to defend a despicable pedophile over “hateful comments” directed against her gender online.

John Stephen Dixon was a man between 1989 and 1996 when he molested five girls and two boys between the ages of six and 15.

But after becoming Sally Ann in 2004, Sussex Police announced last week that “a woman” had been sentenced to 20 years in prison on 30 counts of indecent assault or indecency with a child.

The resulting backlash was entirely understandable.

Sally Ann has never legally changed her gender, so by law she is still a male.

The fact that a taxpayer-funded police force – which deals with the rule of law – would find it “hateful” to state this fact seems beyond absurd.

Sexual assaults on children are rarely committed by women – less than four percent of the time – so it’s frustrating to see particularly heinous crimes being blamed on a female perpetrator.

Yes, 58-year-old Dixon’s gender change had tipped the waters and Sussex Police, whose officers regularly take part in Brighton’s Pride march, are perhaps more gender-segregated than most forces because they have the most LGBT officers and cover more LGBT community than most.

But the force really showed their confused priorities in response to the uproar when they tweeted that “regardless of crimes committed,” they “do not tolerate hateful comments” about a person’s gender identity, adding, “It’s irrelevant to the crime that’s being committed.” was committed and investigated.”

It seemed totally relevant to me and others, and people had every right to express it without the power getting on their high horse, what free speech they might or might not tolerate.

Victims know exactly who abused them, no matter what Sussex Police tell them.

No wonder Home Secretary Suella Braverman condemned the force for “enacting identity politics and denying biology.”

By the way, I’m not disputing the fact that Sally Ann now really identifies as a woman.

Although the fact that she will serve her prison time in a women’s prison and not a men’s prison if she does not have a gender recognition certificate, i.e. is still male under the law, raises other questions.

But bad people come in all shapes and sizes. And genders.

The focus in this case should be on the crime itself and not on the perpetrator’s pronouns.

Just to reiterate, the youngest of Dixon’s poor victims – all adults now – was just six years old.

The thought of it is enough to make the blood boil, and I cannot imagine that there is a person out there who would object to the idea that anyone – male or female – guilty of such a crime is a terrible person who deserves the maximum punishment the law allows.

It is all the more important that our police force focus on catching criminals rather than worrying about what to call them.

Legacy fit for Molly

It must have felt like a hollow victory, but I really hope that the inquest’s verdict on the death of teenage girl Molly Russell brings some peace to her family.

This week, a senior coroner concluded that Molly died of complications from self-harm while suffering from depression and the “negative effects of online content”.

Andrew Walker said images of self-harm and suicide she saw on social media contributed “more than minimally” to her death.

Molly, 14, from Harrow, North West London, died in 2017 after seeing the disturbing content on Instagram and Pinterest, prompting her family to campaign for greater online safety.

Coroner Walker said the online material viewed by the teenager was “not secure” and “should not be accessible to a child”, showing what Molly’s father has been saying all along – that these companies have Molly’s blood on their hands.

I’m so sorry nothing will bring Molly back to her family.

But let’s hope this ruling means that social media companies must finally take responsibility – and act – to keep our children and young people safe.

This is the legacy she deserves.

Tell me how you stay so young, Tom

I often compliment women who look amazing, but it’s about time I turned to a guy.

Because what I really want to know this week is — what’s Tom Cruise’s secret?

He has surfaced in the UK in recent months, most recently after he helicoptered himself to London on Thursday to continue filming Mission: Impossible 8.

And honestly, despite being 60 years old, the Scientologist looks like he hasn’t aged at all since the handsome original first appeared on our screens in the ’80s.

His rather insane religion believes humans are immortal spirits.

If Tom has anything to say, maybe there is something to it.

Kate’s Happy Snapshots

There’s something very special about Kate and Williams’ photos of their beautiful children.

They seem all the happier being photographed by their mother in natural shots than staged snaps taken by a stranger.

So if anyone has a problem with the Princess of Wales enjoying sharing her sweet photos with the world, that’s pretty grumpy to say the least, don’t you think?

According to royal photographer John Swannell, Kate is smashing the hopes of a generation of photographers by taking her own pictures of the royal children rather than letting someone else “make their name”.

How ridiculous to criticize a mother for taking beautiful photos of her children and sharing them with the world – something other members of the royal family are often criticized for not doing enough.

It really shows that they’re damned if they do and damned if they don’t.

Amazing Amal is a true wonder woman

GLOWING Amal Clooney is a rare example of someone who just seems to get happier and more glamorous with age.

She also seems content to keep a relatively low profile, which I think happens when you’re married to the most beautiful man in the world.

But seeing the pair together as they arrived in New York on Thursday to host the Clooney Foundation For Justice’s inaugural Albie Awards was truly a sight to behold.

It’s hard to believe that not only is she Mrs. Clooney and a total goddess, but she’s also a human rights lawyer.

What a woman.

Don’t discard the jab

ONE of the many domino effects of Covid appears to be a growing suspicion of vaccination.

Figures show that vaccination rates have fallen against virtually all major diseases, such as polio and measles.

As a result, thousands of children who have not received their routine vaccinations are now at increased risk of contracting deadly diseases.

I’m sure the reasons for this are varied and complicated.

But now we have been warned that the UK needs to prepare for a big, early flu outbreak to coincide with a rising number of Covid cases. Can I just plaintively remind you that getting bitten really is worth it for everyone – for both flu and Covid.

I get mine on Saturday.

Anything to avoid another lockdown winter or illness.
