Violent male rapist faces court and lies that he is a woman
Adam Graham has been accused of being a violent male rapist in a UK court.
He has been charged and faces court for two assaults on women, one in Clydebank in 2016, and one in Drumchapel, Glasgow, in 2019. He now goes by the name Isla Bryson and tells the lie that he is now a woman. The court and media affirm the lie by referring to him as a woman.
It is alleged he met his victims online because they “are not the sort of people who go to pubs to socialise”.
Incredibly his defence lawyer, Mr Edward Targowski said Graham was “vulnerable”.
“If you accept that evidence, that she is transitioning, that she is aiming to continue on that path to becoming female gender, that goes a long way to acquitting her of these charges,” he said.
The Defence said Bryson was going through a marriage breakdown in 2016, around the time she met the first alleged victim, adding: 'If you look at the circumstances, you do not have a predatory male - you have somebody who is vulnerable.'
He added: 'Her (Bryson's) evidence is a complete denial of rape, asserts that all sex was consenting.
'Where I do take issue with the trial and advocate depute is that there is no way Isla Bryson could be described as a predatory male.
Advocate depute John Keenan disagreed and said there was “clear evidence” of a lack of consent in both the alleged victims' accounts, which he described as “credible and reliable”.
In front of the 15-strong jury, Mr Keenan spoke of how one complainer's account described when the accused was at her home.
He told the court: 'He (the accused) was too strong and she couldn't push him off, she said no, loudly, on multiple occasions.'
'She continued to try and push him off but he said no.'
Mr Keenan said 'she was scared and sick to the stomach about what had gone on' and that 'she was worried about her family.'
In relation to the account from the second alleged victim, Mr Keenan told the jury: 'There is clear evidence from the complainer there was not consent.
'She told the accused to stop, that she couldn't breathe, that she didn't want to. The accused did not stop,' he said.
'That account is corroborated by her distress.
'It must have been obvious that there was no consent.
The jury are out for deliberation and Lord Scott adjourned the trial until Tuesday.
Binary spokeswoman Kirralie Smith said liars are not credible.
“Lying about something as obvious as a person’s sex, insisting the lie must be respected and upheld, is the ultimate expression of delusion,” she said.
“For the courts and media to insist a man is a woman is a lie.
“How can the courts be trusted to handle evidence, facts, truth when they are so willing to distort the truth and protect liars?
“How can any woman feel safe or trust a system that insists we all accept the lie that men can be women?
“These women are not only victims of sexual assault, but the victims of damaging lies.”
