OK- I've been hit with another weird twist of so-called equality and justice in the gender wars. How complicated can gender issues actually become? This news is from
I guess my main argument with the justice of the transfer is that the prisoner was sentenced as a man. With procedures performed while he/she was imprisoned, the likelihood of complete gender reassignment were heightened. What keeps any prisoner from attempting to seek transfer by using the system to alter any physical qualities? And, at whose expense? Should a complete psychological evaluation have been done before his/her first conviction? Psychiatric facilities are available. And, if he/she is not accepted at a woman's prison, what will his/her next step be? Does the public have to build separate facilities just to house transsexuals?
