The law Newsom signed Saturday says officers must ask inmates privately during the intake process if they identify as transgender, nonbinary or intersex. Those inmates can then request to be placed in a facility that houses either men or women.
So why would any male inmate not say he “identifies as” whatever to be placed in a female jail?
Newsom is a man who’s putting vulnerable women in a position to be raped and victimized by male criminals. There’s no better example of patriarchy in action than a dude who helps other dudes rape women. But for some reason nobody is running around Newsom’s mansion in Handmaid’s Tale costumes. The real patriarchy, for our brave feminists, is all about a woman getting into a position of power by virtue of her achievement and intellect.
