A 21 year old transgender woman has been found dead in Armley, a category B men’s prison in Leeds.
"She had been born male but identified as a woman from her mid-teens. She asked the judge presiding over the case to send her to New Hall women’s prison near Wakefield, but her request was denied."
"Vicky Thompson, 21, told friends she would kill herself if sent to Armley prison in Leeds, where she was pronounced dead."

Anyone who argues with me is a deity-phobic intolerant bigot.

Well this is not very compassionate is it? Now she is dead. Did she deserve a death sentence for such a minor offence? I think NOT.
