Law enforcement in Berkshire, England, Thurs posted a photo of the purple-wigged suspect who they say “ exposed their genitals in order to two teenagers and masturbated in a station shelter, ” asking the public for assist identifying the “ individual. ”
Recognise this person?

“ At just before 3pm on 2 September, two teen girls, aged 15 plus 16, were sat on-board a train at the train station when someone on the platform approached the train’s windows, ” BTP explained inside a report online.
“ As the train began the depart the station the person exposed their genitals to the two teenagers before making lewd hand gestures in their direction. ”
“ They then walked in to a shelter at the station plus masturbated. ”
The department was roundly mocked for putting open public safety at risk by declining to correctly label the suspect, despite the fact victims would have likely reported the suspect’s gender to police.
“ Does it assist find criminals when you imprecise important and obvious information about them? ” one enthusiastic Twitter user asked.
Does it help find criminals when you obscure important and obvious details about them?

Oh look, #ThisNeverHappens occurring again.
Is this a:
-Sex offending man pretending to be a woman
-Sex offending man pretending to be a ‘transwoman’
-Sex offending man in a dress?

Let us let the sex offender explain himself however , he prefers & let everybody else – including the Police – talk the truth & state the facts.

Despite your description of a “person” I think we can all accurately guess the sex of the genitals on display. What makes the police so careful about protecting deviant males?

Well there you decide to go, that thing that never happens happening again.
BTW- just say male. It’s ridiculous not to. It’s dangerous to not let the public know this is a male.

Possess your sharp detective abilities not enabled you to consider that this is a man yet? Or are you just deceiving not to know.
That’s a bit of a worry.

Start with a better explanation if you want to catch this intercourse offender.
This is a white man, that rules out over fifty percent the population. What height and roughly what age would be useful. “ Person” is usually meaningless, we know you aren’t searching for a hedgehog or elephant.

You understand very well that exposure is a sex specific offence
& That men frequently target girls… Female children
How dare you conceal the sex of the perpetrator & victims?
Know how many girls are usually sexually abused this way?
It is indicative offence @jameskirkup have you seen this?

Thank you for investigating this
This male is a flasher, possibly an autogynephile, so a man whoms aroused by wearing female attire in public. This is a known paraphilia, a deviance
If he’s using because disguise, he’s wearing a dress to make it easier to expose themself

You need translating:
Their own: his
A pink wig and a school girl skirt do not a “their” make.

This is a man. Please say may man.

Wouldn’t you become more likely to find this male who exposed his genitals to two teenagers while masturbating if you actually referred to him as a male? @SuellaBraverman
— 💚 🤍 💜 Hoardosaurus 💚 🤍 💜 (@coccinellanovem) Oct 27, 2022
No I don’t recognise that person but it might help you to know is actually definitely a man so you can rule out 51% of the population.
— Rose (@RoseWorthesee) October 27, 2022
That’s a man.

Several mistake surely.
We have been told to believe that will no transwomen commit criminal offenses of a sexual nature. This particular tweet must be an error. Or else a transphobe is operating your twitter account.

Hint: you’re not searching for a woman.

So , a male pedophile then.

A 6+ foot tall hunchback maIe with a purple party city wig should be pretty easy to find.

BTP Berkshire’s tweet was seriously ratio’ed as of writing.
Let’s hope police make use of the proper pronouns when they nab the obviously male child sex predator.
