Dec 9, 2018 by

From BBC News.

A professor has said she faced online abuse and found her office door “covered in urine” after debating proposed gender law changes.

Prof Rosa Freedman said she feared for her safety after the reaction to her discussing a government consultation on how people can change their gender.

The human rights lawyer had raised concerns on how the changes might affect women’s rights.

The University of Reading said staff and student safety was a top priority.

Prof Freedman, who has said she is against self-identification, attended debates on the plans to change the Gender Recognition Act.

She told the BBC that afterwards she found her door had been covered in urine.

Prof Freedman also said she was called a “Nazi” who “should be raped” and added it was a “tipping point” for her to “push back” against the abusers when she received anonymous phone calls.
