Yeah a judge disagreed with you and the original lower court magistrate who decreed male prison.

I think he needs to stop complaining and serve his time. He is still male, and should be in a male prison, but in solitary.

Sure, you want to be called spider-man, whatever. What's in a name? Who cares if you think you're spider man? As long as you don't violate my freedoms or break any laws -- I could care less if you walk around in a spider-man costume.
I also could care less that my neighbor is insanely religious and believes in things I think are delusional and silly. She's happy with it, ignores me and we both live in peace.
Let me know how the surgery turns out, I'm curious how they're going to do the web shooters. If you don't mind, may I ask what you do for a living? I would imagine that a spider-man surgery would be extremely expensive indeed!

I am just curious why we are having sympathy for an admitted violent criminal here?? All he needs to do is start a fight and they will throw him in isolation. Thats how it works in many prisons. You want to be left alone?? Just start a random assault and they will isolate you. Cant understand why people will insist on calling him she, especially when he is legally a man. At the very best, I would refer to him as it if he is having such a problem being the male that genetics birthed him as.
Let the violent man remain in a male prison, we dont need him committing acts of violence on other guilty female prisoners as well. he can be as violent as he wants now.
To answer this question in an uncontroversial way, you’d have to first get everyone to agree on what counts as intersex —and also to agree on what should count as strictly male or strictly female. That’s hard to do. Do you count “sex chromosome” anomalies as intersex if there’s no apparent external sexual ambiguity?
Here’s what we do know: If you ask experts at medical centers how often a child is born so noticeably atypical in terms of genitalia that a specialist in sex differentiation is called in, the number comes out to about 1 in 1500 to 1 in 2000 births. But a lot more people than that are born with subtler forms of sex anatomy variations, some of which won’t show up until later in life.
Agreed, my two upper front implant teeth came to £2000, that was after a headbutt as well lol

Nope, a judge disagreed with you so she is now in a female prison, unlucky, common sense won the day over bigotry.
And pre op male prison unfortunately that's just how it must be for now ... in protective cusity just like the sex offenders and snitches

From your source...
Hudson has had reconstructive surgery and lived as a woman all her adult life but is still legally a man.
The law is being followed. She is still legally a man and since that is the case, they cannot legally put her in an all women's prison.
She is where she should be by law IMO.
It's a bad situation all the way around. Gray areas that certainly need to be defined sooner or later.

Nope, both your good self and Kangaruex4Ewe are incorrect because a judge has decided that she serve her time in a female prison now. This has set a legal precedent in the UK so whether you like it or not 'the law' in the UK will provide for trans folk in the future to serve time in the gender appropriate prison.
And to all you folk in the thread almost baying for blood, just look at her:...you really think a male prison was appropriate? Really?
Either way, unlucky to all the bigots, a UK judge made a common sense decision, and I'm chuckling to myself at how angry I imagine some of you are right now lol
I like your thoughts

You know, sometimes i wonder if we ought to spend a year of our lives, perhaps during middle to late teenage years, as the opposite gender to that with which we identify.
In all probability, it would erase gender bigotry in a single generation, if those prone to such things could experience the other side of the coin for a while...if nothing else, it would create a great deal of empathy for all genders and we'd finally see an end to the 'battle of the sexes' i'd imagine.
Would probably work for many situations actually.
