When you see a news story which makes no sense, in which a woman or girl commits a crime associated with the opposite sex, it is a cue to look closer.
Take, for example, a viral news item from Ireland. The Irish Herald reported, on Sept. 24, 2020, that Garda (police) were on alert as a "homicidal girl" was to be released into the community. "The 18 year old, who cannot be identified, suffers from a personality disorder and has repeatedly expressed a wish to rape and murder," it said.
It urged readers to be vigilant, as "she was a danger to the public," specifically "a grave risk to women and has threatened to kill her mother on a number of occasions." The alleged teenage girl was reportedly "on bail, facing charges of sexually assaulting two women and threatening to kill" a third.
Of course, the only type of "girl" with capacity for the crime of rape, and capable of frightening her mother into hiding for safety, is an imaginary one. And so it was. For this teenager with a "continuing wish to murder and rape" was male, referred to in youth court records as 'G,' and subsequently identified as Alejandro Gentile.
At a court hearing in September, the aspiring femicidal psychopath appeared under the new name Barbie Kardashian—a monicker communicating a fascination with women as a subhuman sexual objects (Kardashian/Gentile's ambition was, indeed, to move to Los Angeles to appear in pornography to fund plastic surgery)—bearing a gender recognition certificate. Kardashian's lawyer relayed that her client was "very anxious she be detained in a prison facility for females, as she identifies as a female."
Kardashian, who has retained the most male of sexual organs—not that having it removed would neutralize the range of threats he poses to women—is currently being held in Limerick women's prison. The prisoner has been convicted of ten counts of sexual assault against women, and one count of cruelty against a child.
In some countries, such as Canada and Ireland, the gender identity lobby succeeded in implementing ultra-liberal gender identity laws which make it a civil infraction, or even a criminal matter of hate speech, to fail to honour the preferred pronouns of a person who calls themselves transgender.
The "recognition" of a person's sense of their 'gender identity' then moves beyond a matter of polite consideration for otherwise pleasant people who are struggling with the reality of sex, to become coerced pronouns which disguise important facts
In other countries, such as the UK, gender identity campaigners failed to change the law, working instead on policy capture: misrepresenting the law to introduce policies which manipulate organizations to believe they will be in the wrong to uphold their previous understanding of the law. A prime example is convincing media legal departments that their publication will be sued if they note the sex of even the most obviously male criminals.
Ireland's liberal self-ID laws enable absurdities. A 2019 court report said:
"Born male, G. has from the age of fifteen self-identified as a transgender person male to female. Accordingly, at the express request of of G., female gender pronouns are utilized throughout this judgement."
Kardashian/Gentile's background is extremely troubled. His father behaved sadistically towards his mother, with emotional, sexual and physical abuse witnessed by him as a child. Mr Gentile Senior prevented his wife from breastfeeding and tending to her infant, later recruiting him to join in abusing his mother.
When the child was nine, Mrs Gentile left her husband and took her son with her to a woman's refuge where the staff expressed concern at his violence towards her. At ten, he was taken into care, moving through nine residencies because of his "extreme and excessively sexualised behaviour towards female staff." Then, in 2018, he was remanded in Oberstown Children's Detention Campus.
When being driven to a court hearing by his female social worker, Kardashian lunged at her behind the wheel, digging his manicured nails into the social worker's face, "tearing her eyelids," shouting "I'm going to kill you," and tearing out clumps of her hair which he kept in his pocket. She was hospitalized with these injuries.
When interviewed by the police, he expressed annoyance that he had not succeeded in murdering her. He said it was "music to [his] ears" to hear her scream and cry while asking [him] to stop." He spoke of having a list of female staff he planned to assault. His demeanour was described as "gleeful."
As for his diagnosis of "alleged" gender dysphoria, the psychological risk assessor said it was "as though [he] was reciting from something [he] had learned." The psychiatrist found no evidence of mental illness, but also narcissism & extreme personality disorder. He noted that Kardashain/Gentile posed a risk of violence, particularly to women, and that he used threats of suicide to "manipulate clinicians towards complying with [his] wish to be referred for gender reassignment." He recommended that the subject be remanded in a high security psychiatric hospital, as his deceitful behaviours would make safeguarding measures ineffective.
This illustrates the problem of self-ID: the supposed gatekeeping measures don't work in practice. It is relatively easy for a male psychopath and/or fetishist to give the right answers and obtain a license to terrorize women in the spaces where they are most vulnerable of all. Once a gender reassignment certificate is issued to an individual, and legal sex change enacted, it is unusual for the legal regime to provide for the process to be reversed. Having cleared the paltry administrative hurdles to acquire a diagnosis of 'gender dysphoria,' and receive the certificate, the individual is then administratively stranded in the wrong sex category.
Despite all this, the Irish authorities saw fit to accommodate Kardashian/Gentile in a women's prison. His gender reassignment certificate closed down the moral courage of the public servants handling his case, and their willingness to do what is obviously right. If even government officials fear professional and political backlash from the powerful transgender lobby, we should all be worried.
Ireland seems to have learned nothing from the UK case of Karen White, a male convicted rapist and pedophile who used a "transgender persona" to gain access to vulnerable women. Only after he assaulted two female prisoners was he moved back to the male estate, where at least he would find no potential female victims.
It is worth scrutinizing who, in the penal system, is interpreting self-ID laws and the sex-based rights of women in such a way that dangerous trans-identifying males are housed with women. For example, in Scotland, Gordon Pike agreed to a policy allowing male-bodied sex offenders into women's prisons. It turned out that White was a sex offender who hoarded 22,000 indecent pictures of children. Sexual sadism towards, or simply not caring about, women and children can be a motivator, although of course it may not be in the Kardashian case.
Such is the chaos caused by self-ID laws, everything societies have known about safeguarding women flies out of the window the moment a man invokes the magic words "I identify as a woman." Rory Stewart MP, ex-Minister of State for Prisons in Britain, said that while he served in government there were "situations of male prisoners self-identifying as females then raping staff in prison." Being a decent person, he was firmly against the practice.
Transgender activists have demanded that women who campaign to prioritize the safety of their sex be labelled as 'hate-groups.' Such demands may lose traction as, just last week, the UK government moved to reject self-ID law reforms, and retain women's sex-based rights.
Irish professionals are speaking out. Criminal defense lawyer Robert Purcell said that the Gender Recognition Act 2015 created "an impossible position" with regard to male prisoners who identify as transgender by simply signing a sworn statement.
However, Fíona Ní Chinnéide of the Irish Penal Reform Trust handwaved the vulnerability of the female prisoners who will have to share space with Kardashian, preferring to focus on how vulnerable a male would be, despite the fact that males are on average stronger, and more violent, and that only males are capable of rape. In her view, the women prisoners are relegated to the status of therapeutic aids for the special male's recovery from trauma, instead of female humans with conflicting rights deriving from their sexual difference from men, their femaleness making them additionally vulnerable to men.
Predictably, instead of advocating for the women prisoners, the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission declined to comment at all. It may well have ambitious gender identity activists in leadership positions, hoping for career progression if they enable the destruction of women's rights to make way for gender identity-based rights.
In a statement, Radicaílin said what right-minded people think: "We are horrified at this blatant disregard for the rights of incarcerated women, many of whom are locked up for minor, non-violent offenses and are extremely vulnerable people. We believe this case has highlighted some major flaws in the Gender Recognition Act 2015. In no circumstances should a male-bodied person ever have access to women's services such as prisons."
This is the second time an adult male, with a history of violence against women, is being handled by female prison guards, and kept company by some of the most vulnerable women in Ireland. Kardashian's case may be the one to pull the wool from the eyes of Irish people who were mostly unaware that their government passed self-ID laws in 2015, bundled together with equal marriage legislation. The public was not alerted to the implications for women's safety, privacy and dignity.
While gender identity campaigners for self-ID point to Ireland, Argentina and Malta as post-sex utopias where such laws have caused no problems at all, it will be increasingly difficult for them to sustain such counter-factual claims as stories such as this one come to light.
It is unclear, from Kardashain's case, how anyone in the penal system could justify treating him as a vulnerable potential victim when he openly expresses his intention to kill and rape women. There ought to be no judicial or executive discretion to house such a male in the women's prison estate.
The law's blind spot—or 'kind' spot?—for safeguarding women, and identifying dangerous men, just because they assume the fiction of legal sex change, is deep and dark indeed. Gender identity ideology, once again, makes an ass of the law, and it is vulnerable women who are forced to carry the cost of administrative cowardice and stupidity.
