Law Professor threatened with rape and murder after saying, “a woman is defined by law as biological not psychological.”

A UK professor has received a barrage of abuse after suggesting a woman is defined by law as biological, not psychological.

Rosa Freedman, Professor of Law, at The University of Reading, posted a series of tweets detailing the backlash. “I found my office door covered in urine,” Professor Freedman said.

“People are continuously calling my phone from an anonymous number, and when I answer I am laughed at and told that I am a ‘TERF’ who ‘should be raped and killed.'”

“If this is how a University Professor is treated, little wonder that women who work in jobs without protection regarding academic enquiry… feel unable to speak up to protect women’s rights,” Professor Freedman added.
