Attacker Assaults Three Men, Blames Suppressed Transgender Identity | Women Are Human
IE — Dublin. On December 7, 2017, Sean Kavanagh punched a bartender and threw a bottle at an event manager while being kicked out of the Malt House Bar for knocking over several glasses. Once outside the bar, Kavanagh tried to run back in, at which point a family friend, Thomas Coogan, tried to stop him. Kavanagh punched Coogan in the face, fracturing Coogan’s skull and causing bleeding to the brain; Coogan spent several days in intensive care.
At some point after the bar assaults, Kavanagh began identifying as a woman called Shauna, and now has a gender recognition certificate, which was provided to the court.
Noctor argued in court that Kavanagh is “vulnerable” and would find prison particularly difficult, referencing international research that “has found transgender women in particular are a vulnerable group in prison”.
Noctor referred to two males currently being held in women’s jails in Ireland, who must be kept separate from the rest of the prison population. The two males in women’s prisons are: Barbie Kardashian, who has demonstrated a pattern of extreme physical and sexual violence towards women An unnamed pedophile, who was convicted of 10 counts of sexual assault and one count of cruelty against a child .
