Transgender Sex Offenders: Feminists Advocate ‘Allison’s Law’ to Protect Public

Posted on | April 17, 2015 | 85 Comments

Allison Woolbert was one of the most militant transgender activists on the Internet. Woolbert was executive director of “Transgender Human Rights Institute” (THRI), a founder of the “Transgender Violence Tracking Portal” (TVTP) and the website “TERF Tracker.” The acronym “TERF” (Trans Exclusive Radical Feminist) is a slur invented by transgender activists to demonize radical feminists who are critical of the transgender movement. (See “What Is a Woman? The Dispute Between Radical Feminism and Transgenderism,” by Michelle Goldberg, the New Yorker, Aug. 14, 2014.) One of the “abuses” for which Woolbert and her allies condemned their radical feminist critics was the practice of “dead naming,” i.e., identifying transgender “women” by their original male names. Radical feminists say that discovering and exposing the male identities of these “women” is important because, in many cases, the transgender activists who most vehemently attack feminists have histories of violence against women. Such transgender “women” may be dangerous criminals whose female personas are used to conceal their violent past.

“TERF Tracker” Allison Woolbert is, in fact, Dennis Wayne Woolbert, 51, who was convicted in 1992 of repeatedly raping a 14-year-old girl. This female family member was apparently Woolbert’s stepdaughter and, during a period of two months in the summer of 1991, Dennis Woolbert assaulted her “by performing vaginal intercourse, anal intercourse, cunnilingus and fellatio,” according to court documents. Woolbert was sentenced to six years in prison for aggravated sexual assault and the court noted “since the defendant is a repetitive sex offender, the risk of further offenses is high.” When Woolbert’s criminal history was exposed in January 2015, feminists at the site Gender Identity Watch called for enactment of “Allison’s Law,” which would prohibit “legal change of sex demarcation and name for rapists and violent offenders.”

The need for “Allison’s Law” was highlighted this week by the Virginia Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Robert Floyd Brown Jr. Brown is a 32-year-old inmate in federal prison in Petersburg, Virginia, who obtained a diagnosis of “gender identity disorder” and sought to change his legal name to Alicia Jade Brown. The trial court had denied this request, but the Virginia Supreme Court overruled the trial court’s decision Thursday, with only one member of the court dissenting from Chief Justice Donald W. Lemons’ ruling. Robert Floyd Brown Jr. is a dangerous sex offender.

Dothan Man Sentenced for Child Pornography
WTVY, Mar 29, 2007
24 year old Robert Floyd Brown, Junior of Dothan will spend the next 40 years behind bars for producing, possessing, and transporting pornography.
Posing as a woman, Brown convinced teenage boys to send sexual images over the internet then threatened public distribution if they didn’t perform more sexual acts.
His victims included a 14 year old and 10 year old in Kansas, a 14 year old and 15 year old in Colorado and a 15 year old in Texas.
Federal officials said Thursday the investigation began when the mother of one of the victims contacted officials who investigated and learned Brown was in Dothan.
Dothan police went to his house and arrested Brown and confiscated his computer.
Officials also said Brown engaged in sexually explicit chats with an adult male and threatened to publicly distribute the adult’s online chats unless the adult engaged in sex acts with a 9 month old baby.
The man did those acts and now efforts are underway to identify the baby authorities believe is in Australia.

Brown is suing to try to force federal officials to provide sex-change surgery. Should such dangerous criminals be allowed to legally change their names? Should federal taxpayers be required to pay for “treatment” enabling fetishists to indulge their perverse fantasies?

Radical feminist Cathy Brennan writes at Gender Identity Watch: “In 2015, Men who sexually exploit children are allowed to change their names to ‘Women’s’ names without any regard to the fact they they are convicted child sex predators. This is why we need Allison’s Law.”

    If you’re going to separate the gays from the trannies, you’re going to need 10 menpersons and a boyhorse—and a stout prybar…

  • arcadius

    Well I guess even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

  • Daniel Freeman

    On the one hand, homosexuality and gender dysphoria are separate things. That should be non-controversial.

    On the other hand, activists have long lumped everything together, to the point that I honestly can’t tell if LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM is a parody or not; even if it isn’t real, it could be. (Poe’s Law strikes again…)

    Furthermore, they can be conflated in the particulars, such as by a gay couple of transmen. It gets even more confusing if you make the mistake of looking at it from a transperson’s claimed perspective, since then Dennis Wolbert’s molestation of that girl would be theoretically “gay” (whereas Robert Brown’s offenses actually were).

    So, although I personally agree with you, I hope you can see why conservatives often don’t bother to make the distinction. Many of your “allies” don’t either, and there’s also overlap (whether actual and/or delusional).

    I have had a dog that qualified as a sex fiend…but come to think of it castration just slowed him down a little.

  • Matt_SE

    Even when feminists have a point, they can’t tell the whole truth. Sure, the risk of predatory behavior is a good reason to expose these “women” as men, according to their birth names.
    But the more straight-forward reason to do this is because it’s true: They aren’t women, they’re men with mental issues.

  • Matt_SE

    On the one hand, I sympathize with your position.
    On the other hand, it seems to me that the LGB parts were perfectly fine reaping the benefits of adding the T to the coalition, right up until it became inconvenient.
    So there’s a certain element of “hoist on your own petard” here.

    I think “gender dysphoria” is just another manifestation of homosexuality…

    A large part of the problem:

    Woolbert was sentenced to six years in prison for aggravated sexual assault and the court noted “since the defendant is a repetitive sex offender, the risk of further offenses is high.”

    And he received a mere six year sentence due to a plea bargain arrangement. The solution to Mr Woolbert being a repetitive sex offender with a high probability of further offenses was to lock him up until he was 99 years old.

    But, noooo! Our prosecutors are so fornicating lazy that they far too often, and far too willingly, agree to plea bargains from defendants against whom they have absolutely ironclad cases. Tell the defense attorneys, “Sorry, but your client can plead guilty, and save everybody a bunch of trouble, but he’s still going to get the maximum sentence allowable under the law.”

    We’d have more trials, of course, as defendants would hope that, somehow, they’d get away with it, but we’d also have a lot more criminals locked up for so long that they’d never get another chance to reoffend.

  • RS

    The problem from the prosecutor’s standpoint is this: Defendants are entitled to confront and cross-examine their accusers. In the instant case, a 14 year old girl who was undoubtedly traumatized.*
    Many victims either don’t wish to testify, they are psychologically incapable of testifying or prosecutors don’t wish to subject them to revisiting the crime. Sexual defendants know this. In fact, the true predators wish to inflict more terror on their victims during a trial. These considerations all play a role in plea negotiations.

    *I distinguish this from the college “rape culture” trauma of which progressives are so fond. Such diminishes the true trauma experienced by real victims.

    And, no. Eliminating the right of confrontation and cross examination is not the answer, alas.

  • Adobe_Walls

    Yes, that would do it, though I suspect public support for such a solution might be problematic.

  • Daniel Freeman

    More details from his conviction in March. There was also a DVD, but he successfully argued that he didn’t know how it got there.

    When asked why she had not tried to find out who had given her the DVDs, she replied: ‘I do not know the people who get into my van and tie me up and have sex with me. I wouldn’t know where to start.

    ‘Nine times out of ten I am off my head on drugs.’

    Remember that “first trans legislator” from NH who ended up being a felon whose past had gone undetected in the election because he had changed his name?

    prosecutors are lazy??

    Uh … maybe not so much

  • http://proteinwisdom.com darleenclick

    I’d also add that “plea bargain” is not an indicator of laziness.

    Every trial is a crap-shoot and the prosecutor has to weigh what he or she believes should be the outcome with what may be the likely outcome.

    I’ve seen what looks to be slam-dunk cases go south because the jury is either unsympathic or outright hostile to the victim or witness.

  • Quartermaster

    Often it is. The prosecutors I have had the misfortune to know (many are the scum of the earth, frankly) would go through the entire case with a fine tooth comb and place as many charges as possible beyond the original charge to intimidate the defendant into copping a plea. To say that such acts are unethical is like calling water wet. Yet, it is all too common for prosecutors to do. They are after notches in the gun, not truth. If a few eggs get broken on the way, then that’s just too bad.

    The real bad apples, alas, all too often escape unscathed or barely scratched relative to what they actually did.

  • Quartermaster

    The thing to do is require registration under both names, their “dead” name as well as their pseudonym. That would put an end to most of the finagling.

  • Quartermaster

    I think it’s much like Autistic spectrum in that regard. There are different ways in which the mental illness manifests.

  • Quartermaster

    Yeppers. Since the rule of law was wrecked in the 30s, the governing consensus has slowly dissipated and the chaos is increasing in step with the increasing lawlessness.

    God prophesied this would happen, and we are seeing evil consolidate and stand up.

  • Quartermaster

    Most leftists think a conservative is anyone saying things they don’t like.

  • Quartermaster

    My youngest brother used to have GI Joe tea parties when we were kids in the 60s. He ended up a man among men in the Army.

  • Quartermaster

    I think the normal crazy will take of the problem for you.

    DA offices are like police departments .. they reflect the ideology/culture of the people at the top.

    I feel fortunate to work at an office where I have not seen the over-charging in order to get a plea bargain.

    But obviously mileage varies.

    ******************

    Oh, btw, the issuing dda’s in my department are separate from the dda’s who do prelims who are also different than those who are assigned after info arraignments. Not a lot of chance of over-charging

  • Quartermaster

    I’ve known 5 Prosecutors and only one did not overcharge. In my neck of the woods, the issuing DA and DDA handles it all.

  • Daniel Freeman

    Bradley Manning isn’t on a sex offenders’ registry. Are you cool with someone like him (but less famous) using gender dysphoria to effectively clear his Google results? What about taxpayer-funded hormone treatments and elective surgery?

    It’s one thing for the press to humor a mentally ill man and call him “her,” and another thing entirely for a court to mandate that we pay and play along.

  • DeadMessenger

    The tares are separating themselves from the wheat.

  • Quartermaster

    I have no trouble at all with applying such a law to every convicted felon. Preferably, any convicted felon is stuck with the name under which they committed their crimes.

  • Adobe_Walls

    Faster please.

  • Michelle

    Well, that’s the thing. You could make that argument for any person facing a long sentence and it doesn’t appear any evidence was produced to show they are at more risk than anyone else, but claiming this means they get special consideration. To the point they might as well not bothered prosecuting the offence, there’s no real penalty imposed.

    I can’t believe no one has noticed the obvious scam here, Don, no, Dawn here claims they are at risk because woman feelings, they get special treatment and don’t get imprisoned when they should be. John, no, Joanna is imprisoned for the rape and murder of a woman, starts to play the system and claims they are a woman despite demonstrating their risk to women, and viola! after this they get special treatment, can wear women’s clothes, get protected from other inmates and possibly even moved to a women’s prison because of these alleged woman feelings. Paul, no, Pauline commits a crime and reckons they have woman feelings, they get either special segregation or sent (often as fully male in all other respects) into a women’s prison to create havoc.

    It absolutely works, they get everyone bending over backwards in fear of being sued for not complying with the demands or these claimed risks. It’s certainly something that passes the time, and processes that are meant to prevent abuses of inmates are used to their benefit and the benefit of a raft of therapists that claim, unlike any other psychiatric or psychological problem where the mental health problem is addressed that a whole set of physical interventions are required as well.

    This is all done because of claimed subjective feelings and despite that this gives these men obvious advantages within the prison/judicial system, no one seems to have any interest in the safety of women prison inmates, who in some cases have definitely been put at risk of rape and other violence from these ‘women’ e.g. Maddison Hall, aka Noel Crompton Hall who ended up being transferred back to a male prison in Australia after being charged with rape of his female cellmate, and who got a $A25,000 settlement for ‘trauma’ after suing the NSW department of correctional services while the rape charge was not pursued after the cellmate was released.

  • Anion

    Yep. It’s horrifying.

  • Elizabeth Creegan

    Stats, please.

    I would expect transwomen to commit sexual crimes at a higher rate than average men, if for no other reason than that they’re less likely than the average man to be in a relationship which allows them to obtain regular consensual sex.

  • BigBooButch

    We actually haven’t “reaped” any “benefits” from the T. Ever. They have been riding on the coattails and the money of the LGB for years now. But I guess it is easier for you to believe the bull of the trans propaganda, like everyone else. Since you have to rely on propaganda yourself, that is. Keep on hating lesbians and gay men, who you so homophobically refer to as “gays.” We have been ok on our own for years. But the more you keep lumping in the craziness of the T in with the LGB, the sillier you will look over time when it becomes clear we are not and were never meant to be lumped together like that. Aside from the obvious hatred for a group of people just for being gay, not a bad article. Good luck trying to sort out what it means to hate on TWO groups now, gay men and lesbians and transgenders. It’ll be tough, but I’m sure you can pull it off; after all, hate is what you guys do, the average man needs SOMEONE to blame, after all, amirite?

    It’s mentioned in the Abstract, but the more detailed look is just over halfway down, under “Gender Differences.”

    Admittedly, the study is a couple of years old at this point, but it’s definitely worth a read; to my knowledge it’s the largest (by far) and most detailed look at trans people post-transition, and it proves false a number of propagandist assertions about the necessity of transition to prevent suicides and save lives, and its status as a “cure” for dysphoria/the idea that dysphoria does not often come with a number of other mental or emotional problems.

    It’s very difficult to say what the stats might look like in the US, and that’s at least in part due to how A) the criminal’s cross-dressing or “identifying” as female may be glossed over or hidden in the reporting of the crime or in crime statistics, and B) the way crimes committed by transwomen are reported and listed as crimes committed by women, period. Hence this charmer in the story above, or Kryzie King’s brutal murder of a little boy, or various other transwomen I’ve read about, are all counted as women for the purpose of crime data.

    Or, of course, the fact that their being transwomen means their crimes are not crimes, so a regular dude lurking in a girls’ locker room sauna fully nude, inviting sixteen-year-olds to come take a steam with him would be rightfully reported as a sexual predator, but that same fully intact male who claims to “identify” as female is given the run of the place and any girl who objects is called a bigot and told she can go change in the broom closet.
