Imagine a case where an 18-year-old male cornered a 10-year-old girl in a sequestered area, grabbed her by the face, shoved her violently, and ordered her to take her pants off as he towered over her.
When the girl tried to push past him and escape, the man shoved her again, telling her there were men waiting outside who would kill her mother.
When the police investigated the assault and found the man guilty of assault, he was simply banned from having contact with children and given community service.
All this did happen to an anonymous and brave little girl in Scotland, and her parents are understandably outraged.
There is one key aspect to this story that may have struck you by now.
The man identifies as a woman, and the assault happened in a public bathroom.
On March 4, 2018, a man who goes by the name of Katie Dolatowski assaulted the girl, whose identity has been kept anonymous for her protection, in a supermarket restroom.
The Daily Wire has more:
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.”
This dear child is certainly very brave, but no child should ever be forced to defend themselves against this kind of attack.
Do we really care more about the comfort level of a scant minority of mentally ill adults than we do about the safety of our children?
Keep men out of women-only spaces!
