You should not have even bothered posting cause that was pointless.

There is a very real issue here.

Until now a functional penis was not allowed to be locked up with the women.

Statement of the American Medical Association



H-65.990 Civil Rights Restoration. The AMA reaffirms its long-standing policy that there is no basis for the denial to any human being of equal rights, privileges, and responsibilities commensurate with his or her individual capabilities and ethical character because of an individual's sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or transgender status, race, religion, disability, ethnic origin, national origin, or age. (BOT Rep. LL, I-86; Amended by Sunset Report, I-96; Modified: Res. 410, A-03; Reaffirmation A-05)


From the Statement of the American Psychological Association



Therefore be it further resolved that APA encourages legal and social recognition of transgender individuals consistent with their gender identity and expression, including access to identity documents consistent with their gender identity and expression which do not involuntarily disclose their status as transgender for transgender people who permanently socially transition to another gender role;


The medical and scientific opinions of over 200,000 doctors and medical professionals and 80,000 or so psychologists beg to differ with the "known fact" that people are either "innies or outies."

I know they were taking things into account and the original judge made the right decision by putting him in a male prison then the only factor that reversed it was public outcry.
No you have your facts wrong, again.
The original decision to send to a male prison was made in a lowly Magistrates court , by a magistrate, not a judge. This also indicates the offence was minor because it didn't go to Crown court.

The prisoner appealed the conviction to the higher Crown court and the judge confirmed the conviction, but ordered female prison to reflect her gender.
The lowly magistrate was tied by guidelines but the higher court judge was not.
Public outcry was irrelevant.


My point is that you do not want to acknowledge that this person is still a male with male tendencies/ You want this person to represent a female that used to be male but this is not the case but if it were then your arguments would hold water.
Well, she has been on female hormones for 6 years and looks more female than some females I know so nope, you are just making that BS up.

Regardless, the judge disagrees with you so I guess you should quit yer bitchin' and suck it up.
It doesn't affect your legal system in any way though, it's a UK case, you can still continue throwing your trans folk to the wolves in male prisons.

Unlucky, a UK judge disagrees with you, get over it...it's the law, as people said in the thread before a judge overruled the original magistrate hahaha

Puleeze. Now we're back to the "functional penis."

Ever hear of male guards and corrections officers? Stop the silliness.

It is your opinion that there are only two genders based on only two sexes, and that it is perfectly reasonable for we as society to treat folks that way. Medical science, psychology and every known scientific and medical fact disagree with your simplistic understanding.

That's the issue. Care to concentrate on that?

As I said before, it is a real conundrum. The sex is male, the gender female. The courts have to decide whether to use sex as the deciding factor or gender as the deciding factor. In this case, gender won out.

(I'm still worried for his penis though. Hope they get that taken care of sooner rather than later.)

Yep, probably when she is released. I'm happy that my taxes fund transgender treatment for all folk in the UK who require it.

We are talking about prisoners not guards.

They have always separated the male prisoners with a penis from the female prisoners that do not have a penis.

Men are stronger than women.

It is perfectly fine if you want to question the norm but don't pretend that it does not boil down to innies and outies.

This is the first functioning penis locked up with the females.

It is very clear tome that this guy will keep his junk and has no plans to remove it.

He may run into a bunch of people though that try to change his mind.

He has a clear history of enjoying his masculinity.

So what, a judge made that decision.
Do you know better than the judge?

Seems a load of folk here were saying 'it's the law' before the judge overruled the magistrate mid thread lol.
Now I smugly say back, it's the law.

Is she interested in women sexually?

Another faux "concern" that is merely smoke ...

Why should the legal system take only sex OR gender identity into account? Why should it be an either/or when we know medically and scientifically that the human person is more complex than that?

If a woman is living as a woman and has been living as a woman for that time under her control to do so, she's a woman.

If a man how has lived as a man suddenly puts on a dress and make-up for his hearing and asks to be assigned to the female-only prison for prurient purposes ... he's a man, and should be treated that way.

Irrelevant, plenty of lesbians in prison.
A judge overruled a magistrate and unless any of us have more information than the judge then just suck it up, and unlucky if the decision troubles you.

No, a moment ago you were talking only about a "functional penis" ... now you're worried about which side of the bars the penis is on??? BS.

If you were at all worried about female prisoners being abused, you'd be crusading to make sure that no males were placed in positions of such power over females as is the case with male corrections officers.

Since you are blatantly quiet on that issue, the truth of the matter is clear.

And no one here is questioning "the norm", we're talking about accepted medical and scientific facts.

I'd like to ask everyone here who is cool with the judge sending him to a female prison, if you would be cool with the judge sending someone with a vagina to a male prison?

I would think that the man with a vagina would be the one at risk in an all-male facility rather than the other inmates.

Are you concerned for his safety? Is that the basis of your question.

Irrelevant to this case and OP.
If you are aware of such a situation then share it here or start a thread about it maybe.
A judge has decided that the gender appropriate prison in this case was a female prison.
I guess you just gotta suck it up as 'it's the law' as so many said before the judge overruled the original magistrate lol.

I thought she had been moved, but that was yesterday, so maybe some thing has changed, in my opinion she wasn't being very lady like when she headbutted a waiter which is what she got locked up for.

Nope, a judge set a precedent after considering all the facts and you don't like it. Unlucky lol
