The California prison system is now taking on its first wave of those prisoners that are requesting transfers into women’s prisons. There are three hundred waiting to transfer since January when the bill became law. Twenty have been processed so far. No one has been turned down. 1237 now claim as being transgendered. Women’s prisons are known to be an easier place to do your time, so no doubt just the beginning of co-ed prisons. Violent males, rapists all are welcome to apply.
There are no exceptions in the bill to make sure that men who have committed violent or sexual crimes against women are not placed in prison with women. Once transgender inmates are housed and classified by gender identity as opposed to biological sex, crimes they commit in prison are cataloged with the stats of the opposite sex. This will make it impossible to track how many male-to-female transgender inmates abuse their male-bodied privilege and assault, harass, or attack female prisoners. In practical terms, this would both skew the violent crime stats and make it that much harder for women inmates to differentiate their male attackers from the rest of the prison population.
Statistically, men commit the majority of crimes against women. The World Health Organization estimates that 35 percent of women internationally have experienced sexual violence, most of it at the hands of intimate partners, and 38 percent of the murders of women are committed by male intimate partners. Women in prison who have perpetrated crimes have, in many cases, also been the victims of crimes. As they serve their debt to society, they should not be further victimized.
Here we go:
As The Daily Wire reported last September, inmates in California are now housed according to their self-proclaimed gender identity. SB 132 — signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) — states that prison officers must privately ask inmates in the intake process if they identify as transgender, nonbinary, or intersex. Inmates can then request a move to the facility that houses other inmates in line with their preferred identity.
The Women’s Liberation Front — a left-wing feminist organization that opposes gender identity legislation due to its negative effects upon women and children — revealed that corrections facilities are now offering contraceptives as a result of the policy:
Women incarcerated in California’s largest women’s prison are describing the conditions as “a nightmare’s worst nightmare” after the introduction of new pregnancy resources in the Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF) medical clinics. The new resources are a tacit admission by officials that women should expect to be raped when housed in prison with men, where all sex is considered non-consensual by default within the system.
New posters recently appeared in medical rooms outlining the options available to “pregnant people” in prison, including prenatal care, abortion, and adoption. The poster also declares that women have the right to “contraceptive counseling and your choice of birth control methods by a licensed health care provider within 60-180 days prior to scheduled release date.” However, the only methods available to incarcerated women to prevent pregnancy are condoms, which appeared shortly after the men, and Plan B emergency contraceptives.
Women’s prisons across the state appear to be making final preparations such as these for a massive wave of transfers after nearly 300 requests were initiated following SB 132 going into effect in January of this year. So far, only about 20 of the transfers have been processed (and exactly zero transfer requests have been denied) — leaving hundreds of men, many of whom are sex offenders, awaiting entry into the women’s estate.
As more men arrive at the women’s facilities, the crisis will only worsen. In just six months since the enactment of SB 132, the number of incarcerated people self-identifying as trans or non-binary (thus becoming eligible to request a facility transfer) has increased from 1,088 to 1,237. The nearly 300 pending transfers are only the beginning of the invasion of women’s prisons by violent male inmates, including convicted murderers and rapists.
“You might as well declare the prison is co-ed and ship us off to Pelican Bay!” one devastated woman currently incarcerated in CCWF said.
