Avery Edison

Avery Edison, a male who identifies as a trans woman, was arrested at the airport  and detained in a men’s prison in Canada in 2014 when trying to re-enter the country after previously overstaying on a student visa.

Edison, 25, chose to be detained for an inadmissibility hearing rather than immediately return to the UK and was allocated to a men’s detention facility due to being in possession of male genitalia.

Update July 2018

In a since deleted series of tweets (here and here) Edison trots out something akin to the common domestic abuser’s line of ‘She made me do it. She made me so angry I had to hit her. It’s her fault. She deserved it.’ 

It is not women who are responsible for “actual physical harm” done to individuals in the trans community. It is violent men.

You can find a very long list of the violent and sexually violent crimes that trans-identified male individuals have perpetrated against women and children in the UK here.

It is also women like Maria MacLachlan and Julie Bindel who have been physically assaulted by male trans activists at feminist meetings, as well as being besieged by attackers banging on windows, making bomb threats or setting off smoke bombs. A list of often violent protests that trans activists have staged at Women’s Place meetings is available here.

In addition, there are hundreds of examples of where trans activists threaten to punch, rape, torture and kill women at this website https://terfisaslur.com/
