Transgender Woman Claims Former Male Self a Murderer

Quote
Authorities in Washington State believe that a series of murders of prostitutes in 1990 were committed by Washington resident Douglas Perry. Now Perry has been captured and charged with the murders, but Douglas has become "Donna," a transgender woman who claims that she is not responsible for the murders because Douglas no longer exists.

Donna's novel defense is that as a male she was prone to violence so she had gender reassignment surgery in Thailand a few years ago in order to purge herself of those violent tendencies. Further, since she is now a woman, she is a wholly different person and therefore she isn't responsible for what her former male self did.

Donna was arrested for the murders in 2012 after being apprehended on an unrelated weapons charge. Police found that her fingerprints matched what had become a cold case in the murders of the three prostitutes decades ago.

If Donna’s defense were to be accepted by the courts, it could lead to unintended consequences for the transgender community as their former selves could possibly be universally considered mentally ill. This is a diagnosis that people with alternate lifestyles have been working hard to defeat for decades.

LGBT spokesmen warn against accepting Perry's claims at face value.

If she hated women so much that she killed them, why would she become what she hates?  Don't answer. It's something liberals do.

How convenient for him.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

Should have had a fingerprint transplant while he was having "little Doug" hacked off.

Somehow this defense will probably work.

Very simple to disprove that defense:  the whole point of gender reassignment is to change your outside so that it conforms to who you feel you are on the inside.  In other words, it doesn't change who you are, it just changes how you look.  As such, the thinking mind, the being who makes the body do things, is still the same as s/he was back when he committed those murders.

Stop being so logical!    :smokin:
