Guidelines Changed For Transgender Inmates

DC: President Trump changed guidelines for how transgender prison inmates are housed on Friday.

The Obama administration had originally altered the guidelines in 2012 to allow transgender inmates to choose where they are housed based on which gender they identify with.

The president’s most recent change means those inmates will initially be housed based solely based on their “biological sex,” which was announced by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

It should also be noted that the change in guidelines does not suggest that transgender individuals will be forced to stay in prisons that do not align with the gender they identify with long term.

The move is a result of a federal lawsuit filed by four women who were being held at a Texas detention center. The inmates argued that, by allowing people to choose which prison they want to be housed in, they are put at a greater risk of getting sexually assaulted because they might have to share spaces with people who identify as women. more here

  1. If every prisoner was in solitary confinement and saw no one but the guard delivering food, and the doctor now and then, this would not be an issue.

  3. Guys who identify as women are not the most attractive in the dating world. It would seem that being surrounded by women starved men would put them in great demand – quite the ego boost.
