A record high attacks by children in Scotland
It’s a dangerous time now, people are doing crazy things against trans people. The only reason is they can’t accept others orientation and trying to harm and destroy LGBT. Transgender people living in Scotland are facing record high attacks carried out by children. A report on hate crime in Scotland revealed that in the last two years, no children were charged with offences.
However, now the number of under 18s facing criminal charges for hate attacks against trans people revealed that young defendants make up 10 percent of hate attacks carried out against trans people. The report also found that reported crime against trans people had increased by a third since last year. The “alarming” figures suggest that young transgender people are being targeted by their peers. The findings of the report have been deemed “deeply troubling” by LGBT activists in the country.
Monica Lennon, the inequalities spokesperson for Scottish Labour and MSP said that the figures “should concern us all”. It comes after the Scottish government announced a review of LGBT equality in schools after activists from Time for Inclusive Education (TIE) put forward proposals to tackle bullying of marginalised sexualities and genders.
Jordan Daly, who headed up TIE, said that the rise in transphobic crime prove that Scotland has a long way to go before achieving equality. “The group will consider whether legislation is required for schools to be proactive in tackling homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, as well as recording specific incidents of homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in schools.”
