Re: News outlets report that a "woman" commits multiple assaults. Surprise! The accused is actually a man.

(raddy-set-go)
Honestly the whole "woman commits crime / oh by the way she's trans" is becoming the "jump scare" of news stories. It's meant to catch you off guard but you end up seeing it coming miles away.

(DontbetheGround)
Yeah. That's true. Headlines/articles along the lines of:

"Women rapes and murders women and children" Or "Women tries to murder random strangers with an ax in a crazed violence spree 'cause her feelings got hurt"....um....yeah. No. That don't sound right....hmmmm.

Takes 2 seconds to Google: Oh. Okay, not some rare outlier of our statistics. No. No. It's just another dude. This one is "claiming to be a women." Wonder how I knew to Google that?

These males are going to completely screw up data and research.

Yet another reason these sick and twisted men should stay men. They are not welcome as women. They are men.

(Penfragon)
Yes, absolutely. This was in /r/news with no one mentioning he was trans, only saying she/her, and I fucking knew something was really not right about it without realising it was an inevitable Tim yet.

(Feminazcabooby)
No real woman would go around attacking men because dude... HAVE YOU SEEN MEN? Unless you're targeting elderly or disabled men, you're going to get your ass handed to you.

(DontbetheGround)
Hate to break it to you: old men are still stupid strong. As for disabled, I reckon that depends on the disability. I know a paraplegic, double amputee, that works as a bouncer in a really rough place. If someone is within his reach (and dum-dums get cocky and move within his reach) their ass is grass.

Nope. Males are stupid strong. They, general statement, don't tend to be weak until they are 'death bed weak.' (Just sharing information.)

The standards for reporting that make this person out to be a woman are like nation-wide gaslighting.

Even with the outlets that are reporting on the fact that he is male, the powers that be will never let the story gain enough traction to spur discussion about the problems inherent in reporting feelings vs. facts and how harmful this is to women.

(Mountains_beyond)
If a man identifies as a woman, no matter how clearly deranged he is, he is taken seriously. In this case in Oregon, where some lady-identifying dude was arrested for “its just a prank, bro!” threatening people with a gun, they had to add “suspect identifies as a woman”, because there was no other way to tell.

I remember a while ago the news had a really tough time reporting on this TIM who went back into Male mode to avoid the police after committing a crime. They said they were looking for a woman who was impersonating a man. But of course it was really a man who had just taken his wig off!

AhhhhhhhhHahahahaha you’re joking right? There’s no fucking way real detectives/cops said “a woman impersonating a man”

I can’t remember that case now, but there was another case with a TIM and the newspaper headline said “woman commits fraud by pretending to be a man.” But he was a TIM who changed his identity back to his old male one to defraud people!

(morningtea50)
The job of journalists is to check and then report the facts. It is NOT their job to push a political agenda by lying about the sex of the person committing crimes because they think they’re winning social justice points or something. At this point I no longer trust anything I read about a ‘woman’ committing a crime until I go into the article itself and read the comments – sometimes the media will include a photograph of the criminal so we can see the person is a biological male that does not happen very often.

Great job, news media. I no longer trust what I read when it’s anything about women committing crimes.

(vulvapeople)
I've seen it suggested elsewhere that the attacker might actually be a TIF, which would track with one of the victims identifying the attacker as a woman and with the rather female body shape of the attacker. (That's all I have to go on anyway. I haven't been able to find a good image of the suspect.) It'll be interesting to see if this is ever clarified as the case progresses.

Regardless, this story is yet another example of how trans bullshit makes it impossible to report the news accurately.

Confused?
