    Oh my Goodness !!..these digusting people ought to hang their heads in shame. Can not the police bring any prosecutions in relation to this?. In my opinion these people are now tainted with association of a violent sex pervert, who brings shame upon the community and his family. Can only hope the poor woman can now put this behind her eventually.

  2. This must of been done by the family and friends of the rapist. Where are the police yet again?

    And why are not the Welsh assembly addressing the frequent cases of Transphobia and Homophobia in Wales.

  3. Oh, at times I do really hate some people, talk about kicking you when your down. We should get these people raped and mock them, well I couldn’t because it’s not in my nature to be just that mean, I suppose that’s because I am an actual human being but they would just so deserve it.

  4. Good for her for standing her ground in the face of such blatant intimidation .. and good on the jury for not being swayed by anything they may have found unusual about the victim’s sexuality.

  5. Do some inhabitants of Llanelli have bruised knuckles because they scrape the ground?

    Are those who attacked trans-woman Roman-Catholics ?

  7. So let me get this right: Vilified throughout her home town in a malicious poster campaign, being subjected to hateful abuse in the street and on the internet, herself and her family forced to move house because of the sheer volume of abuse they were getting…?

    Isn’t this sort of thing usually supposed to happen to the rapist? Yet, here, the victim gets it – purely because she’s trans.

    As it is so unusual for a rape victim to suffer widespread abuse from the community to the extent of being forced to leave home, then you’d think that somewhere in the national media this story would have got coverage.

    Naaah…’news’papers are only interested when the transperson is the crime perpetrator; not the crime victim!

  8. Can you believe this sort of thing still happens in 21st century Britain. The bullies should also receive a punishment to discourage such behaviour from others!

    There should be severe punishment meted out to the inhuman scum who did this. And I don’t care how much valuable police time is used: this is precisely what the police are there for and they shouldn’t be allowed to forget that for a second.

    Alas, these things would only happen in a fantasy land. The real world is far too sleazy and barbaric for such things to be possible.

  10. I don’t think cis-gendered women are treated much better when they ‘cry’ rape. Sex, even forced sex, is still very much a male prerogative.
