You Know What The Right Wingers Will Say…

I can hear them now using this against us.

  • She said defendant, aged in 20s at the time, acted as if nothing happened
  • Ayrton, now 34, from Fordingbridge, Hants, denies rape - trial continues

A transgender woman allegedly raped a 15-year-old girl before changing sex from male to female.

Davina Ayrton, now 34, is accused of raping the teenager in Portsmouth in 2004, when she was known as David.
[…]
Jurors heard how the rape allegation was reported to police around the time of the alleged incident but that the teenager did not want to make a statement.
This had nothing to with non-discrimination laws, she didn’t sneak in to a bathroom or locker room, she didn’t use being trans as a defense but you know that this will be used against us by the conservatives.

Being trans doesn’t mean that you are a saint, all it means is that you are trans.

Every so often we also see a headline that reads: "Man dressed in women's clothes robs (bank, convenience store) etc.)" These headlines, while not necessarily relating to transgender individuals, don't necessarily help our cause, either.
