A 25-year-old biological male who identifies as a trans woman has been arrested in the US state of Kentucky. He is said to have sexually abused a baby as an employee of a day care facility. Cases of child abuse by so-called trans women have increased noticeably in recent years.
“Maria” Childers (actually Mark) worked at the “Explore Learning Academy” in Paducah, Kentucky. According to a Facebook profile where he poses in a classroom as Alice in Wonderland, he is said to have graduated from an online university. In February, police received an anonymous tip from another officer alleging that Childers touched a baby inappropriately while changing a baby’s diaper and made inappropriate comments. The incident is said to have taken place in November last year.
Police then drove to the facility on February 8 and spoke to a witness who confirmed the details of the anonymous tip. The director of the facility was also interviewed. Apparently, she was aware of Childers’ behavior towards the baby, but for some unknown reason had not taken any action. It’s unclear if Childers is still employed at the facility.

The transgender was arrested the same day. When questioned, he initially denied ever changing the diaper, which turned out to be a lie. When police showed him a text message to the warden confirming he had changed his diaper, he relented, but claimed he did not sexually touch the baby or make inappropriate comments.
Childers was reportedly charged with first-degree sexual abuse of a victim under the age of 12 and is in the McCracken County Jail on $100,000 bail, according to media reports. (His gender is listed as “male” on the prison inmate list.) He is scheduled to appear in court on March 23.
Not an isolated case
In 2021, the case of a YouTuber from the USA, who had kept a video diary about his life as a trans woman there and who ran a day care facility together with his friend, made headlines: the transgender had saved numerous images showing sexual abuse of young children . Some of the children are said to have been only three years old. He nevertheless told the police that he assumed the children had reached the age of majority.
Also in 2021, a trans woman in the UK was sentenced to 22 years in prison for molesting and raping young girls – the youngest four years old – over a 17-year period.
In 2022, the case of James “Hannah” Tubbs caused sharp criticism of the cosiness of the judiciary in Los Angeles. In 2014, when he was almost 18, Tubbs molested a 10-year-old girl in a local powder room. Eight years later, he was finally arrested — and then began identifying as a woman. His sentence was so ridiculous that he poked fun at his father in a phone call from jail: “I’m going to plead guilty,” Tubbs said in a related recording. “They’re going to put me on probation and it’ll be dropped, it’ll be done, I don’t have to register, don’t have to do anything.” What he meant by that was that he didn’t even have to register as a sex offender. In another recorded phone call, he advised the caller to address him with female pronouns from now on, because then he would be put together with other “trannies” (transsexuals) who had done similar things to him.
