Police let hundreds of rapists falsely identify as women
Police have reportedly labelled hundreds of suspected rapists as women, despite them being born biological males.
A Freedom of Information Act revealed the number of officers who accepted the alleged attacks’ so-called preferred gender.
In the last four years, police have referred 260 “females” to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
An additional 209 suspects have been recorded to have an “unknown sex”, the Telegraph reports.
This includes those who identify as non-binary.
CPS guidance states that rape is penetration “by a penis, therefore a women can only commit this offence as an accomplice”.
Earlier this year, rapist Isla Bryson was transferred to a men’s jail after initially being place in a women’s prison.
Bryson was found guilty of raping two women.
The CPS revealed that, since 2019, about 1.5 per cent of rape suspects referred for a charging decision were recorded by police as “female” and around 1.2 per cent “unknown”.
The data shows that in 2023 alone, 64 “females” were referred for rape to the CPS.
26 of these people were charged.
