So, there’s a Thing that’s a bit viral on Twitter.
Seems a young lady in a Minnesota school found herself assaulted by staff of said school.
Oh, yeah, see, there’s video evidence. One mo, and I’ll fetch that for you dears:
So … yeah, I mean I suppose that in some ways it could be argued it’s not assault … using a dictionary. Legally, however, there’s a few child sex crime kind of laws in violation by the adults seen. To say nothing of a little thing called psychological assault in violating her privacy like that and by misgendering her so thoroughly.
I kid you not, this has created an uproar. Twitter seems to actually be in consensus about it (only other time Twitter was in consensus about something Joffery had been poisoned). I mean never mind any trans rights debates, everyone is enraged about treating a child that way. Oh and maybe because they didn’t issue an apology, they issued a statement and were then suddenly worried about ‘privacy’.
So I had a little something to say to such a non-apology:
As did the amazing Amanda Jette Knox (this one a thread):
And hundreds more with thousands of reactions that basically come to ‘I’m with you, mate!’
