‘A rapist cannot be a woman’: Kate Forbes shares views on transgender people
A rapist “cannot be a woman”, SNP leadership candidate Kate Forbes has said.
Speaking to Sky News, the finance minister shared her views on transgender double rapist Isla Bryson, who was initially sent to a female prison. She was then moved to a male estate after an urgent review into the case, a reversal of the Scottish Prison Service’s (SPS) previous policy.
“My straight answer would be that Isla Bryson is a man,” the MSP for Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch said.
Ms Forbes previously told ITV Border that she believes a trans woman is a “biological male.”
