Swedish police now using gender-neutral pronouns

Not so long ago I joked about the Swedish police being overly politically correct when reporting the appearance of perpetrators by saying that they would soon start writing something along the lines of: “We need the publics help to find the hen who assaulted and raped a hen this week in a city.”

Much to my amusement they are actually starting to do just that!


“Östermalm. Person threatened and was robbed of watch.

In combination with a person selling a watch hen was threatened with a pistol by the prospective buyer who was forced to hand over the watch. The robber / buyer then left the scene on a moped / scooter.

A patrol is at the scene speaking to the plaintiff”
