Police in the Canadian city of Toronto issued a missing person report on Thursday. “Isobella Degres, 27, was last seen on Saturday, June 25, 2022 at 3 a.m. in the area between Ryerson Street and Bathurst Street.” Moreover: She is described as being 1.70 meters tall, slender, with shaggy blonde hair and a small, stocky beard. She was last seen wearing a black shirt and gray pants.”
Police said on Twitter there were concerns about Degres’ safety, and the report is no joke. Users are still skeptical of the message – particularly the fact that Degres is treated with feminine pronouns. Someone asks “How is that supposed to help?” “Honestly, if this person is in danger, you are harming the public by misleading that.”
“Facts instead of identity preferences!”
The message from angry Twitter users: The fact that the police use women’s preferred pronouns doesn’t help at all in the search for Degrace, in fact it’s misleading and will make the search more difficult. How would you describe a woman on the phone or on the radio, for example? Will you then mention that she looks like a “normal guy”? Another user interrupts.
“Can you use facts for missing persons reports instead of identity preferences?” Someone else is poisoned. “This is about finding a missing person, not marking a virtue.” Toronto police have not yet commented on the allegations from the Twitter community.
One user even suggests using neutral English pronouns as “they” and “they,” and not referring to Degres as a woman, but simply as a person. That could have avoided the confusion. Another added: “For the outraged, this woman is missing and may be in danger.”
After all, everything went smoothly: Isobella Degres was found after 9 hours of searching.
