Caroline Farrow, a Catholic journalist, was investigated under the "malicious communications act" after the founder of a transgender charity accused her of misgendering her daughter in a tweet. Farrow said it is her religious belief that a person cannot change sex.
The Surrey police investigation followed a October 2018 Twitter incident after a television debate between Farrow and Susie Green, the founder of Mermaids whose adult daughter is transgender. Green later withdrew the complaint.
