“If you have gender critical views you wish to express this can be done on other platforms or your own page, not targeted at an individual.”

Sussex Police have declared that it is “irrelevant” that a convicted child sex abuser is a biological man who identifies as trans, warning people that they do not tolerate “hateful comments” about his gender identity.

On Monday, Sussex Police posted a press release, noting that Sally Ann Dixon, 58, had been sentenced to 20 years in prison earlier this month, after being convicted of 30 indecent assaults against five girls and two boys, aged between six and 15, with the offences dating back to between 1989 and 1996.

However, at the time, Dixon was John Stephen Dixon. According to Sussex Police, Dixon transitioned in 2004, and were legally male at the time of the abuse. Of course, having transitioned, the Sussex Police ran with a headline of “woman convicted of historic offences against children in Sussex.”

This headline angered a number of people online, with one user arguing that this was “a man committing sexual offences against children,” and calling for the Sussex Police Commissioner, Katy Bourne, who was elected as a Conservative, to “get your force in order.”

In response, Sussex Police declared that they “do not tolerate any hateful comments towards their gender identity regardless of crimes committed,” and declared that the discussion of Dixon’s sex was “irrelevant to the crime that has been committed and investigated.”

Twitter user Weatherwax6655 then proceeded to ask Sussex Police if declaring that Dixon is a man, a gender critical view that is “protected in law,” is a “crime” or not.

Sussex Police proceeded to link their page on hate crimes, but then explicitly confirmed that if people have gender critical views, they are free to express them “on other platforms or your own page, not targeted at an individual.”

Unsurprisingly, the tweets from Sussex Police declaring that it was irrelevant that Dixon is trans saw an immediate backlash among prominent conservative commentators. Julia Hartley-Brewer, said that Dixon was in fact a man, and that the police should “feel free to charge” her with a hate crime, as she was “happy to go to court” and argue her case.

Conservative journalist Poppy Coburn highlighted that it was a Conservative government who created the College of Policing, which “expressly trains police officers to be inclusive of transgender ideology.”

As Valiant News reported in July, the College of Policing was forced to create new guidance among policing legitimate debate online, after the Court of Appeal ruled in favour of Harry Miller, a former police officer who had a non-crime hate incident recorded against him for retweeting an allegedly “transphobic” limerick.

Sussex PCC Katy Bourne has been pictured celebrating LGBT Pride in Brighton in August this year, which was also attended by Sussex Police, dressed up in a rainbow luau, complete with rainbow face paint.
