Transgender sensitivity training for police officers

Despite decreased budgets for police departments. And despite the shocking wave of attacks against police officers. The St. Petersburg Police Department has seen fit to provide special training to ensure their police officers don’t “mis-gender” dead “transgender” people.

As most readers know by now, “transgender” is an official sounding word intended to legitimize a mentally ill person who wishes to be the other gender from which they were born. And toward that end they may change their name, alter the way they dress, manipulate the way they speak, physically mutilate themselves, ingest large doses of hormones, and increasingly make quite a fuss about the pronoun used to describe them.

Embracing this race to normalize that which is pathological, Anthony Holloway, St. Petersburg Chief of Police, is putting his officers through sensitivity training. Per Chief Holloway: “times are changing and we need to change with the times.” Holloway wants to “get ahead of this before we start getting complaints.”

 

“This,” presumably, being complaints about police having the temerity to identify those who appear to be men as men, and women as women – a common sense, obvious, long-standing, no brainer practice that caused a problem last month when a man who identified as a woman and renamed himself India Clarke was found dead in a North Tampa park. It seems the police identified him as a him on the police report.

Gasp!

And so, St. Petersburg police officers are being taught that, among other things, when identifying deceased “transgender” persons, it doesn’t matter what the name and/or gender is on the deceased person’s government issued ID. What matters is the name and gender they identify with. (How the officers come by this information is unclear since, obviously, the dead person can’t tell them, though that’s hardly the point.)

Taking things one step further (because there’s always one step further when it comes to the “progressive” march toward madness), for all you cat lovers out there in St. Petersburg, if you want to be ID’d as Felix the Cat, now’s the time to make arrangements.
