President Joe Biden is getting ready to give every rapist and abuser in federal prison a free release card. Specifically, Biden proposes to transfer all male criminals to women’s prisons. All the men will have to do is say they feel like a woman, and the Biden administration will take their word for it.
This policy is perhaps the worst part of a draft law enforcement decree, a Rough draft of which was obtained by The Federalist. The major part of the proposal is devoted, if not to the financing of the police force, at least to its disarmament and neutralization.
But buried near the end of the sweeping action planned to soften the crime is a small paragraph of innocuous bureaucratic language that orders the United States Attorney General to “within 30 days of the date of this order, begin the process of” identification of any changes necessary for the [Bureau of Prisons] Handbook of transgender offendersâ¦ to allow the BOP to designate people in institutions based on their gender identity. “
In short, under this decree, the federal government will harbor criminals on the basis of a subjective and self-proclaimed “gender identity” rather than biological sex. Male rapists, child molesters and other sex criminals will be allowed to live in women’s prisons, and because the transgender ideology adopted by the Biden administration claims that gender identity is purely internal, they will be allowed entry regardless of whether they still have a fully functional male. genitals.
This move towards mixed prisons will result in male sexual predators who will exploit the system in order to abuse and rape inmates. We know this because it has already happened in places where these proposals have been adopted.
For example, Caroline Downey of National Review Online recently published a room detailing alleged rape and sexual assault within the Washington state prison system, which has started housing men in women’s prisons. History suggests that such incidents are covered up, possibly because of prison officials eager to appease their political overlords.
Similar problems have arisen in California, which houses male inmates who claim a female âgender identityâ in women’s prisons. In response to reports of rape and abuse, the Feminist Front for the Liberation of Women, which rejects transgender ideology, filed a federal complaint against the state.
Like Brittany Bernstein reports: âComplainant Krystal Gonzalez says she was sexually assaulted by a biological man who was transferred to the Central California Women’s Center by law. According to the lawsuit, when Gonzalez filed a lawsuit and asked to be housed away from men, the prison response called its alleged attacker a “transgender woman with a penis.” a penis.
In the UK, placing women with phallic powers in women’s prisons has produced such horrific results that even Guardian leftists admit that some “mistakes were made.” But that wasn’t enough to stop the trend, and now the inmates are threatens with extra time to call “him” or “him” transgender inmates. “
Now Joe Biden and his officials are eager to follow these examples. The Democratic Party, along with most of our country’s ruling class, has embraced transgender ideology and is eager to uphold it. Audiences, meanwhile, are realizing that what was sold as just nice when Bruce became Caitlyn extends to the transition. children, allowing men to dominate women’s sports, and now allows male rapists and murderers to write their own post in women’s prisons.
As these examples show, transgender ideology is misogynistic. The heart of this misogyny is the transgender’s hatred for the biological reality of human sexual dimorphism. Thus, the transgender disdains and tries to erase the recognition of the special vulnerability that women endure due to human physical embodiment.
Women are, on average, physically weaker than men. In addition, human reproduction imposes much greater burdens and risks on women than on men.
To a very large extent, therefore, civilization is about training men to treat women as persons and not as prey. It is a mark of civilization that even women who have lost their freedom are still protected from male sexual predation. Such efforts are always imperfect, but it is a definite sign of a relapse into savagery to deliberately allow male criminals access to female prisoners.
This indifference to female vulnerability demonstrates the casual cruelty of transgender ideologues, too enamored of intellectual fantasies to be disturbed by the real suffering they inflict. Moreover, contrary to his campaign promises to be a moderate, returning president, Biden rules as a far-left ideologue.
There was a time when putting men in women’s prisons would have been the cue of a bad Biden campaign joke. Now that is her policy, and if passed, some of the most vulnerable women in our country will suffer.
