This is some next level clown world stuff right here:
We brought you this story a few weeks ago, and at the time we thought it was bad enough, because women being "assaulted, abused, and traumatized...at the hands of male inmates" sounds pretty nasty as it is.
I don't care what these males identify as. They're bigger, stronger, and faster than these women.
But lookie here at one of the ways California is trying to "solve" this sexual abuse problem they created (for those of you who don't know, California now allows males "who identify as female" to be housed in female prisons, and vice versa):
Posters displayed in [prison] medical clinics advertise a variety of options for "pregnant people" who might become pregnant while in prison. The methods available to female inmates to prevent pregnancies are condoms and the emergency contraception Plan B.
THIS IS DISGRACEFUL!
Instead of stopping the sexual abuse, let's just find a way to solve the problem ONCE THE SEXUAL ABUSE HAS OCCURRED. THAT'LL WORK!
And they literally wrote "pregnant people" as if this problem is so incredibly minuscule that we must go out of our way to not offend women who identify as men.
BECAUSE WE WOULDN'T WANT ANYBODY'S FEELINGS GETTING HURT!!
Here's the text from one of those posters.
So if you look there you'll notice there is also an option for abortion. So that's cool.
Some prison employees joke that the prisons will soon need a full-on maternity ward and even a nanny program. Given the poster I linked to above, I don't see this as very far fetched.
This is only the beginning, by the way. About 25 male prisoners are already living in the female prison system in California. However, there are currently over 250 requests from males in male prisons seeking to enter female ones.
Here's what feminist group WoLF had to say:
"Does anyone care that we are being forced to house with 6'2, 250+ lbs men with penises that are here for brutally raping women?" she continued, WoLF said. "We have been warned by the officials in this prison, more are coming with worse charges. Where is the safety concern for us? If we say we are in fear, we are the ones locked up."
I'll leave you with this, because it's just absolutely disgusting and I don't want to write it out myself:
Writing in the Santa Monica Observer earlier this month, Amber Jackson, who is incarcerated, [said]..."The one man I saw up close looked unhealthy and possibly diseased. I have little doubt these transwomen are positive for communicable diseases. Very little. This is a disgusting time to be in prison," she said.
An update to Jackson's July 10 op-ed claims that three out of the four trans-identifying men that she wrote about are HIV-positive, according to a CIW officer. The department's push to distribute condoms to the prison population for the purposes of avoiding liability was too late.
"The condoms were not yet available when the sex began even though CDCR knew these three transwomen had HIV, and it was possible to spread through sexual intercourse. Most of the population does not know this as it is protected by Federal HIPPA [sic] legislation," the update read.
I'm sorry I had to share that information, but this is the world we live in now and I'm afraid it isn't about to get better any time soon.
