A British woman who was arrested in front of her children for referring to a trans woman as a man on Twitter has been charged with malicious communications, according to the Daily Mail.

The woman, Kate Scottow, 38, was arrested in her Hertfordshire home in December after she misgendered a trans activist on Twitter. She was detained for seven hours and then questioned. The Crown Prosecution Service reportedly said that Scottow was charged over "persistent" messages designed to cause "annoyance, inconvenience, or needless anxiety."
