This the issue that propelled Jordan Peterson to global internet super stardom. He refused to bow to the Trans lobby's lock on the Canadian legal sytem and took a stand for free speech. The rest is history.
This guy is a brave man and should be applauded and supported. This kind of thing is obviously nonsense and brings the police into disrepute. All of us should exercise our free speech, and if it is treated as a criminal offence, not back down.
It isn't about bigotry, or even a lack of kindness to those mixed up people who think they are women or men, but don't have the requisite penis or vagina. It is about naked power by the cultural marxists. They want to force their ideological view, that gender is a social construct, upon the rest of society, by making it illegal to deny it. The police are just their pawns.
So the OP was being misleading as to the actual story. Surprised.
Most UK Monarchs were just as bad before Victoria.. posing around in tights, split mini-skirt and a codpiece. At least she introduced some family values.

I suppose at the end of the day it's the police's job to keep the peace. Perhaps a slightly misjudged action though, and clearly not one that's actually had the desired impact.
A shame that after being told what a total pillock he's being, he's decided to double down on it rather than actually listen to anybody except himself. Now he seems to be bleating on about suppression of free speech (on Twitter and in the media, ironically). It's all rather pitiable to be honest, imagine wasting your life on all that hatred. What a pathetic individual.
Imagine being a copper and wasting your life harassing innocent people because they post opinions you don't agree with!

But from the sounds of it the police didn't make any actual threats per se, they just mentioned that his transphobia could end up costing him his job if he doesn't wind his neck in. Sounds like fairly solid advice to me but I guess he felt threatened by it somehow. Who'd have thought it eh? A thin-skinned bigot...
The only reason it doesn't seem threatening to you is because you don't agree with what the man is saying, so you're happy for him to be challenged over it. But imagine a slightly different scenario. You are a gay person posting pro LGBT stuff on your feed all day because it's something you believe in. The police phone you up, threatening your job if you keep posting stuff and telling you to "check your thinking" if you keep posting that material. Wouldn't you feel threatened, and concerned that your right to express your political opinions was being, not completely denied, but heavily suppressed?
If an officer tried this with me I'd instruct them not to contact me again. Failing to do this could see the officer themselves fall foul of harassment laws, if they knew their contacting me was unwanted.

Lesson to be learned from all this: if you ever get a knock for something you've written in here, the Mail is the place to take your story to.
Funnily enough, I'd had that thought ages ago.
He means that I am surprised, despite my stating of the opposite. He thinks it's clever, best he could manage...

There's a poster around who is decidedly not a fan, she warned me once that the secret services might one day take an interest in my posting. The first danger is that someone like that may spark the whole thing, Miller's case was due to a complaint by a member of the public.
Hate speech was created as an antidote to the US constitutional right to free speech, one of those american things that end up travelling over through a well oiled and politically motivated network. It is a leftist tool on both sides of the pond. Mind where you go, you lot.
Consequently if I complain about racism then no-one cares.
