Transgender Follies in California

File this under-- better late than never.

California feminists have now figured out that putting biological males in women’s prisons is not such a good idea. They have figured out that if a male can request a transfer on the grounds that he has changed his mind about his gender, then we have no way of judging whether said being has really changed his mind.

In short, transgenderism is a delusional belief, not based on any biological reality, so, nothing prevents a convicted male felon from deciding that life would be better in a women’s prison. After all, these men did not end up in prison for being honest.

Zero Hedge has the story:

On January 1, a law went into effect in California (foreshadowing Democrats' "Equality Act" bill - requiring people to be treated according to their gender identity, not biological sex), holding that state prisoners must be housed in a facility consistent with their gender identity, regardless of their anatomy.

Six months later and guess what has occurred…

There has [sic] been numerous complaints of assaulted, abused, and traumatized women at the hands of male inmates transferred into their prisons.

Now, women inmates are being assaulted, abused and traumatized by male inmates. A progressive feminist group has taken notice:

And one group of traditionally progressive activists - the Women's Liberation Front (WoLF) - has sent a letter to Goverror [sic] Gavin Newsom, accusing the state of violating the constitutional rights of incarcerated women by allowing men into their living quarters to "prey on women."

WoLF Legal Director Lauren Adams said:

“We are working with a woman who was punched in the face so hard by a new transfer that she couldn’t chew for three days. He was taken away and released back in a different yard with no restrictions,” Adams said.

“He was her cellmate. She had to sleep with him.”

Other women have been sexually abused in the past and must now contend with nude men sharing communal showers, Adams said.

“One woman went in there with two naked men showering who still had penises,” Adams added.

“It was incredibly traumatic and scary, to know for, [possibly], the rest of their lives they are going to be subjected to this.”

So, rape culture comes to women’s prisons, thanks to Gov. Newsom and the leftist radicals in California:

Yahoo News reports that the state currently has 273 transfer requests; 266 are from people housed at male institutions requesting to be transferred to a female institution, and seven are from people at female institutions requesting to be transferred to a male institution, according to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Currently, 24 male prisoners have been transferred to female institutions.

The feminists have decided that the men requesting transfers are not really women. Duh? But again, how can you know? You cannot know on the basis of biology.

In a shockingly truthful (and sure to get you canceled) comment, WoLF theorizes that many men transferring into women’s prisons are not transgender but are just trying to escape their current living situation.

“A lot of these men checking the box and trying to get transfers are probably trying to save their lives. I wouldn’t want to be in the men’s prison,” Adams said.

“You are giving them a way to get out of that, but now it’s the women who are in danger.”

WoLF is asking the governor to halt all new transfers and remove the inmates who have already transferred until a safety assessment can be made.

As though that were not enough, Roger Simon, a former California resident, reports on a scene that occurred in a Los Angeles spa.

Nothing happened there then remotely similar to what occurred the other day—a man walking buck naked into the women’s only side, declaring his “gender identity” female, while not bothering to hide the contrary evidence in front of the assembled biological women and their children.

Later, a black woman expressed her justifiable anger at this display before management only to be herself confronted by a particularly obnoxious “woke” individual defending the right of the gender dysphoric to freak out kids. (This is also on video at the link, if you haven’t seen it.)

The right to freak out kids. Let’s call it the right to abuse children. As you might know, any male who exposes himself to a child on a playground will be committing a felony.

Then again, the transgender lobby has received wholehearted support from Antifa. If you do not want men in the women’s and girls’ locker room, Antifa will beat your brains in-- literally:

The next chapter had defenders of traditional human privacy (aka “normals” as my friend Kurt Schlichter calls them) protesting in front of the spa when they are confronted by the violent Antifa psychos who are apparently immune to any kind of serious prosecution by the district attorneys of Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle or, for that matter, our Department of Justice.

When you look at the silent faces standing in the lobby of the Wi Spa while the “woke” spokesman pontificates, you see this fear and all you can say is “Welcome to Weimar Los Angeles.”

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, at the casual sexism of Lauren Adams, who is claiming that a person cannot be female, based only on such superficial features as a penis.

Other than that, Californians voted themselves a circus, and a jolly circus they will have.

California feminists are sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow on the uptake. The STUPID is/was STRONG in these ones...

California: Where bad ideas come to LIVE!

Is California's Governor inhabited by the SPIRIT of a dead Roman emperor? Caligula, is that YOU???

You keep demanding and demanding till you get what you want, then discover it wasn't what you thought it would be. How is that working out for you insane gender ideologists?

While I do feel somewhat sorry for the women prisoners, I have zero sympathy for any of the spa-goers: What did they think was going to happen? (making the wild assumptional leap that California spa-goers are likely Democratic voters)

Overall, "schadenfreude" well describes my reaction. (I believe we have covered the "you are nicer than I" ground, already.)

Rereading that, I just noticed something: Why is the sight of a naked "man" traumatic to these children when the sight of naked "women" is not?

In other words, why is ANYONE wandering around naked in a spa that has children present?

It is not acceptable, of course. OTOH, it is California, so why should anyone be surprised?
