'Trans' Kidnapper Is Latest PR Disaster For Nicola Sturgeon's Gender Self-ID Law
A gift that keeps on giving
The fiasco continues at Holyrood. It will keep happening. It will not stop until Nicola Sturgeon stops pretending that men can be women.
A 53 year-old man was arrested in the Galashiels region of Scotland on Monday after police found an 11 year-old girl in his home. She had been missing for over a day.
Andrew Miller, a local butcher with terrible online reviews for “shockingly bad poor quality food, served by a staff member who was downright rude” and “surly with no manners,” is also a cross-dresser.
Sturgeon, the First Minister of Scotland, is still reeling from the embarrassment of placing intact rapists in a women’s prison. Any reminder that men never stop being men, no matter how pretty any particular man may appear with “his/her make up…applied nicely!” as the above reviewer noted, is bad for Sturgeon right now.
Her new “self-ID” law is unpopular, the Prime Minister has exercised his powers to block it, and Sturgeon has staked her party’s future to it. Whereas stories like these got little attention before Sturgeon pushed the law through the Scottish parliament. they now get long overdue coverage from a still-active free press.
Reduxx located two different profiles for Miller and his alternate female persona, “Amy George.” Both accounts have been active at the same time, and this has apparently been going on for a long time, too.
A source local to Miller told Reduxx that he had been labelled “tranny Miller” while in high school because of his proclivity for cross-dressing, and that he had been known as a “knicker pincher” even as a student.
These are red flags for male sexual violence, and people used to know that. According to Sturgeon’s Gender Recognition Act, none of that would matter anymore. Pending paperwork, “Amy” would already “be a woman” under Sturgeon’s law. He could have flown past all safeguarding of any kind because his legal fiction is now supposed to be treated as an untouchable, fundamentalist biblical literalism.
According to The Telegraph, Police Scotland have “defied” Sturgeon by referring to Miller as a man. They also report that “Miller transitioned around six years ago when he changed his name to Amy and began dressing as a female.”
Sturgeon, who refuses to say whether an intact rapist is male, and insists on using female pronouns for those rapists who claim a female “gender identity,” has an opportunity to do the same thing now with a kidnapper.
Reunited with her family now, the victim is said to be unharmed. This is of course false: she will be traumatized no matter what, which is the reason why kidnapping minor children is even a crime at all.
According to Miller’s social media profile, “Amy George” is a “single woman, only interested in single women.” This is also false. Miller is a man who wants women to validate the little girl inside him. And since no grown woman ever would, he seems to have developed a fantasy of taking someone young and malleable into his clutches, so as to groom them for his madness.
Miller’s last social media post about his shop announced it was closing. “Many Thanks for all your wonderful wishes,” it said. “The Shop in Melrose will Not be opening again as a Butchers Shop. 4 Generations and nearly 200 years in the trade is enough.”
He had a new plan for his life that involved kidnapping little girls. Don’t imagine she would have been the last one.
According to The Herald, Miller will be arraigned today at Selkirk Sheriff Court. Meanwhile, Nicola Sturgeon should prepare for questions. Such as:
Do you think Andrew Miller is a woman?
What pronouns will you use for Miller?
If Miller is or isn’t a woman, then why or why not?
What makes Miller less or more of a man than, say, convicted rapist “Isla Bryson”?
Do you still maintain that giving Andrew Miller a gender recognition certificate poses no risk to women and girls?
What is the material difference between a man kidnapping and/or raping women and girls on the one hand, and a man named Amy kidnapping and/or raping women and girls on the other?
There are so many questions, and they are finally being asked. What’s more, the drumbeat of “gender” stories will not stop. A man will soon raise a ruckus at a spa, or in a changing room, or in a shower area at a pool, or on a sports field, somewhere in Scotland, soon enough.
Reduxx deserves an award for consistently covering all the things that “never happen,” happening, all the time, without mainstream media attention. That has changed in Scotland, and Sturgeon will never live down the endless humiliations that lie in wait for her.
