Seeing as how men’s prisons are violent, rough places to make a go of it, we’d have to imagine there are plenty of male convicts who would choose in a heartbeat to go to a women’s prison if that option were available to them. We’re not saying that women’s prisons are Club Med vacations or anything, but come on. If YOU had to spend the next five years of your life behind bars, wouldn’t you choose to go to a women’s prison if the option were available to you? Pretty sure it’s a no-brainer.
Well, in California, prisoners will now have their exact option! Thanks to a new law signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday, the California Department of Corrections will be required to house transgender inmates according to the gender they identify with rather than their actual biological sex. In a move that makes absolutely no sense unless you’re completely indoctrinated by LGBT propaganda, Newsom’s law essentially gives prisoners the right to choose whether they will be housed with the women or the men.
What could go wrong?
Under the new Transgender Respect, Agency, and Dignity Act, law enforcement officers must now take inmates aside and ask them if they identify as a man or a woman. At that point, inmates who declare themselves transgender may request to be imprisoned with others of their chosen gender. The law forbids officers from denying any such requests based on the genitalia of the inmate, their sexual orientation, or their birth certificate sex assignment. There is a clause in the law that allows officials to deny a request based on “management or security concerns.”
Um…we have some of those concerns!
But according to California State Sen. Scott Wiener, the Democrat who wrote the bill, our concerns are completely unfounded.
“It’s just a false narrative about transgender people and about transgender women in particular that they’re somehow not really women and are just trying to scam their way into women’s bathrooms or facilities in order to do bad things,” Wiener said. “Overwhelmingly the people who are being victimized are trans people.”
Welp, you said it, so it must be true. We’ve been around long enough to know that if an “oppressed person” claims to be oppressed, there is no amount of data, science, or logic that can overturn that claim. Indeed, you’re a bigot if you even try.
We are headed for some bizarre times…
