Catholic Journalist Gets Visit From Police After ‘Misgendering’ A Trans Person
Police want to question Catholic U.K. journalist Carline Farrow for allegedly “misgendering” a transgender activist’s daughter on Twitter. If she doesn’t show up for a taped interview, she has been told she will be arrested.
Since receiving a message from Guildford police Monday night, Farrow (pictured above, right) has been doxxed, her children and husband have been sexually and violently threatened and she has been called names like “p*ssy” and “c*nt.” Enemies siding with the activist, Susie Green, have also signed up her and her husband for porn accounts. Farrow published the offending tweets in September after appearing on Good Morning Britain, co-hosted by Piers Morgan, who has gotten himself in various pickles with the transgender community for not being sensitive enough back during interviews when he worked at CNN.
Back in 2014, Morgan had his nuts handed to him by Janet Mock, a transgender woman, after she appeared on his show to promote her book. She claimed he asked inappropriate questions. “Going to bed. What an annoying day,” Morgan tweeted just before 2 a.m. at the time. Mock claimed he mistreated her by stating that she’d been a male prior to the age of 18.
Farrow can relate.
“Had a message from Guildford police tonight about my tweets following an appearance on @GMN with Susie Green and Piers Morgan. Susie Green has reported me for misgendering her daughter,” Farrow tweeted Monday night.
Morgan replied, “WHAT????” (RELATED: Piers Morgan Wants To Be Trump’s Chief Of Staff)
Farrow’s life has since turned into a pile of steaming roadkill.
“A man has published photos & identifying details of my kids, doxed my ex, talked about my ‘Catholic pu**y’ called me a slag, slut, c**t and scrubber together with sexually humiliating insults & gets away with it,” she wrote. “Whereas I use the wrong pronouns referring to a public figure.”
Farrow has tried to defend herself.
“I have pointed out to the police that I am a Catholic journalist/commentator and it is my religious belief that a person cannot change sex,” Farrow explained. “That we are in the middle of a national conversation about what it means to be male and what it means to be female.”
Green runs an organization called Mermaids, a U.K. charity that raises money for children with gender variance.
“My daughter told me when she was four that she wasn’t a boy,” Green wrote in a first-person account for The Guardian in 2018. “I spent more than three years on suicide watch when she was a teen. Every phone call would strike fear into my heart – this might be the one to tell me that my daughter had been successful in her wish to die.”
Here’s the interview from Good Morning Britain.
Police tell Farrow they want to question her for cautionary reasons regarding Susie Green’s child.
She is standing strong to her belief that sex cannot be changed.
“I don’t even remember said tweets!” she wrote. “I probably said ‘he’ or ‘son’ or something. …This was in September! But I really not [sic] got give a flying toss. I have done nothing wrong, nothing illegal and will happily do jail time for my right to say that people cannot change sex.”
Despite the stress of having her life turned upside-down, Farrow insists she’s OK.
“For those wondering if I am upset or hoping I am. Nope. I have 5 kids. Might catch up on a bit of sleep in the clink!” she tweeted.
Green’s daughter was born a man but identifies as a woman.
“Thing is, I try really hard not to misgender people,” Farrow reasoned. “So if I did so it was inadvertent and Freudian. I can’t help think of a teenager who is having their penis and testicles removed, as male. Mea maxima culpa. ….Except this child is now an adult and is in their twenties. Their mother made a documentary when they were a teen exposing every intimate detail about them and has gone on to build a career off the back of projecting her experience on to others.”
Farrow says she’s being flooded with media requests. Meanwhile, she has worries about her own family. For instance, her daughter is scheduled to sing Vivaldi.
“I am overwhelmed by media requests but I need to concentrate on a parent consultation about how my son is getting on in pre-school (he has a speech delay) and tonight my daughter is singing the solo in a choral society production of Vivaldi’s Gloria & is a bag of nerves.” she wrote.
Also, this: “Had one hour’s sleep so husband has volunteered to do school run as I am too shattered to drive. He is 100% behind me and believes far from suffering genuine anxiety, I am being targeted by a professional activist seeking a test case.”
The journalist suffered a bout of insomnia Monday night.
“I can’t sleep I am so furious,” she wrote. “According to the police I ‘misgendered’ which implies that I used the wrong pronouns/nouns and this potentially constitutes a criminal offence [British spelling of ‘offense’]. Let that sink in.”
Yeah, sweet dreams.
