SB 132 would

  • Allow any incarcerated male to claim that he has a feminine “gender identity.”
  • Give any such incarcerated male the legal right to be housed at a women’s facility, unless the incarcerated male’s “perception of [his] own health and safety needs requires a different placement.”
  • Force correctional facility staff to use language pretending that males who claim to have a woman “gender identity” are women.
  • Forbid facility officials from considering anatomy, the presence or absence of a diagnosis of gender dysphoria, and the presence or absence of any other physical or mental health diagnosis.
  • Forbid prison officials from overriding a prisoner’s demand to be housed in a women’s facility unless the prison official meets the extraordinarily high bar of demonstrating in advance “significant security or management concerns.”>

This is currently on the floor of the California Assembly, having already passed the Senate.

This. is. evil. I refuse to believe they don't understand what they're doing to women. I'm not in California, so I can't help. Good luck.

I wonder if any Republicans are voting yes on this and whether it's more efficient to call them or the democrats.

In terms of efficiency, yeah most votes on this have been along party lines thus far. So that might be a good strategy, yes. I don't know enough to know where the reps stand on it. Thanks.

Sometimes I really do love my state, but things like this make it an embarrassment.

The strategy is painfully obvious : "Who cares about women CONVICTS, anyway-? We'll go for this low-hanging fruit, an' then-"

Just utterly disgusting. These women are captive and hence completely vulnerable. Maybe-MAYBE-the creatures voting yes on this still think transwoman=Sad Gay Man, but even if that were so (and the vast majority of "transwomen" these days are violent, entitled heterosexual men aka "transbians" and autogynephiliacs) , the feelings of the convicted women matter too.

This is why I'm voting for Jo Jorgensen in 2020. I just cant anymore with either of these parties.
