The police service said that it would "not tolerate any hateful comments about gender" in an online statement after it was criticized for referring to the pedophile as a female.
The statement said, "Sussex Police do not tolerate any hateful comments towards their gender identity regardless of crimes committed. This is irrelevant to the crime that has been committed and investigated," leading some, including Maya Forstater, who won a test case ruling that gender-critical views were a protected philosophical belief under the Equality Act, to note that Dixon is a biological male.
"It is not 'hateful' or criminal to call someone male a man. It is a simple statement of fact. The paedophile who committed these crimes, like 98 percent of those who undertake sex crimes was and remain male," Forstater said.
"There needs to be a review up and down the justice system from the police to CPS to courts and prison system to record and speak truthfully about sex," said Forstater to the Daily Mail.
In another post, the Sussex Police told another women's rights activist that Sally Dixon should not be misgendered, saying that Dixon's gender identity had no relation to the series of attacks that had been committed.
Dixon transitioned 18 years ago, and carried out several attacks on children from 1989 to 1996 while living as a man. Dixon was found guilty of 30 offenses including indecent assault or indecency with a child against seven victims, including one victim who was just seven at the time.
The jury took just 17.5 hours to find Dixon guilty. Dixon will do 18 years in the HMP Bronzefield women's prison.
Dixon does not have a Gender Recognition Certificate, which allows people in the UK who have gender dysphoria to change their legal gender.
Psychologist Pam Spurr said that what the police are doing is "insane."
"The police are doing a terrible disservice to crime statistics actually being meaningful with this 'parallel universe' approach to allocating sexual assault crimes to the wrong gender."
Ryan Richter, the prosecutor on the case, told the courts that Dixon "living as a man in the late 80s and 90s, was a brazen and callous sexual predator.
"He exploited young males and cultivated a toxic relationship with female children who he systematically abused throughout their childhoods."
Dixon was also jailed for six months in 1997 for sexual abuse of a teen boy. Dixon's other offenses would not come to light until 2019 when one victim came forward.
Dixon committed his crimes in lock-up garages and in a camper.
Detective Constable Amy Pooley of the Sussex Police Complex Abuse Unit said: "Dixon came to know these vulnerable young children successively through family connections, and used that trusted access to systematically abuse each of them for sexual gratification, in some cases for several months at a time."
"Only when one of the victims eventually came to us in 2019 was the terrible and distressing nature of Dixon's offending over many years finally uncovered."
"As one victim escaped this predatory interest, another would take their place, but sometimes some victims would be offended against simultaneously."
"This case shows again that we will always follow up such reports, no matter how long ago the events are said to have happened, to support victims and to see if we can achieve justice for them wherever the evidence justifies that."
