On particular issue I have with the transgender community is their inability to identify those who commit violence against M2T individuals, and their astounding ability to perpetuate misogyny against women as well as blaming women for condoning this violence by not letting them into women only spaces. In the interest of seeing if the blame of women for transgender related deaths held any water I looked up hate crimes committed by women. There was only one news report that I could find which stated that a woman had murdered a transwoman.
The victim of the Kings Cross tube death on Monday evening has been named as Sonia Burgess, who was a trans woman.
She died after being hit by a tube train during the rush hour.
A 34-year-old woman, Nina Kanagasingham, of Chichele Rd, Cricklewood has been charged with murder. Police said yesterday that the death is not being treated as a hate crime.

Now this article mentions the “gender identity” of the victim- Sonia Burgess, a male to trans human rights lawyer is stated to be a transwoman. However, the perpetrator, Nina Kanagasingham is simply referred to as a woman. The article was out-dated so I took to Google again to find out more information on how the prosecution went. What I found was this.
‘Woman’ accused of transgender Tube murder is actually a MAN undergoing a sex change
A man accused of pushing a transgender human rights lawyer under a Tube train is in the process of becoming a woman, a court heard today.
Unshaven Nina Kanagasingham, 34, of Chichele Road, Cricklewood, north-west London, appeared at the Old Bailey today charged with the murder of David Burgess - also known as Sonia.
This is the first time since his arrest that it has been revealed Kanagasingham is actually a man.

Both Nina Kanagasingham and Sonia Burgess were male. The attempts made by the transgender community to blame women for male violence are a direct threat to preserving the safety of women and women only spaces. This has been just another attempt to blame the persecution of transwomen on actual women, and can be shelved with other nonsense ideas like cis privilege. There is no cis privilege, there is male privilege, and women are not responsible for the widespread persecution of transgender individuals, and should not welcome transwomen into female only spaces. Transwomen are men.
