And another plank of the Obama legacy hits the wood chipper: Attorney General Jeff Sessions has reversed an Obama policy that allowed transgender felons to move from men’s prisons into women’s prisons. The new policy will instead base prison location on the prisoner's “biological sex.”
This will be spun as an attack on transgender rights that will expose transgender prisoners to physical and emotional abuse in men’s prisons, although threats to the prisoner’s safety will be taken into account. Its opponents will do their darnedest not to mention the potential physical danger and emotional abuse that the Obama policy inflicted on women prisoners, who were to be deprived of privacy and personal safety and security by being locked inside cells with male criminals – most of whom, it should be noted, have not undergone surgery to become physically female, but who simply claim to “identify” as female. In fact, the change was sparked by a lawsuit by four female Texas inmates who were frightened for their own safety.
As I’ve pointed out again and again, in the current “progressive” atmosphere of dividing people into victim identity groups and pitting them against each other to promote the leaders’ power, women are increasingly finding themselves at the very back of the line for civil rights protections.
