In Scotland, an 18-year-old male who identifies as a woman was given a slap on the wrist by authorities earlier this month after assaulting a 10-year-old girl in the restroom.
According to The Courier, the suspect, who goes by the name Katie Dolatowski, sexually assaulted the unidentified little girl in a supermarket restroom on March 4, 2018, reportedly grabbing "the terrified youngster by the face, shov[ing] her into the cubicle and order[ing] her to remove her trousers." From the report:
The girl had been sledging when the assault occurred on March 4, last year, a month after Dolatowski had filmed a 12-year-old girl on the toilet in another supermarket in Dunfermline.
When she came out of her cubicle, Dolatowski shoved her back in and told her there was a man outside who would kill her mother.
The brave schoolgirl, however, punched Dolatowski in the face, stomach and groin and ran to her father and siblings waiting just outside the toilets.
Rather than being sent to jail, Dolatowski has been banned from having contact with children and given community service and electronic tagging. "I have come to the conclusion that the public will be better protected by the imposition of a stringent community payback order," said Sheriff James Williamson.
The little girl's mother, also unidentified to protect the identity of her child, said she felt "very, very let down" upon learning that Dolatowski will walk the streets again.
"I don’t have any confidence whatsoever that he will not go out and do something equally as bad or worse," the mother told the press.
The mother said that her daughter continues to suffer horrifying flashbacks and was hysterical after the attack. "This is something that will remain with her for the rest of her life," she said.
The mother added that Dolatowski behaved as a sexual predator and specifically stalked the toilets to victimize a little girl. "He was stalking the toilets. He went there specifically to attack a child," she said.
"We were so, so lucky that nothing worse happened," she added. "It was only her reaction that stopped that. It could have been a five-year-old child that wouldn’t have been able to fight back."
Not only did Dolatowski admit to sexually assaulting the 10-year-old girl, he also admitted to following another girl into a bathroom at the Asda Halbeath supermarket in Dunfermline on February 8 and holding his mobile phone over the bathroom stall to film her urinating.
The court reportedly took sympathy on Dolatowski because he grew up in Britain's social care system since the age of three and suffers from mental health issues. But the mother said that's a petty excuse, considering the hundreds of people who suffer from mental health issues that do not assault little kids.
"A lot of people have been in care but they do not go out and assault children," she said. "I don’t care that he has issues or what his background is, he is a pedophile and he has been let out on a supervision order."
According to LifeSiteNews, cases such as Dolatowski's are not an anomaly. "Plenty of people have already used claims of being transgender to get access to female bathrooms for the purposes of voyeurism—and sometimes worse behavior," reports the outlet. "These examples are usually ignored entirely, and even mentioning them can get you labeled a bigot."
