Britain's first transgender hate crime prosecution has been halted by a judge who declared: ‘There is no case and never was a case.’ Miranda Yardley, 51, was put ‘through ten months of hell’ after being accused of harassing a transgender activist on Twitter. But District Judge John Woollard dismissed the case after a one-day hearing, saying there was simply no evidence. Campaigners called the decision a victory for free speech, while the accused claimed police were being used to ‘enforce a political ideology’.

The hearing at Basildon Magistrates’ Court in Essex last Friday brought into sharp focus the complex and often rancorous divisions within the transgender community. On one side was Yardley, an accountant, who describes himself as a transsexual and identifies as a man, even though he underwent gender reassignment to become a woman ten years ago.

Despite his own experience, his contention is that individuals cannot change sex – and this has drawn fierce criticism on social media.

So she advocates sex changes for children but wants to be anonymous. What is the point of that? Silly woman. Then again, she shouldn't be talking about her kid on social media. Poor children don't have any privacy these days.

What is most ridiculous about all this. Is that it even went to trial Rags

A number of people have been visited by the Police at home, for simple expression opinions about gender expression

Its becoming like a new Transgender Blasphemy law
