Why are so many transgender prisoners sex offenders?
Trans prisoners are Sacred. The other prisoners are Scared.
Just listened to Wesley Yang's Year Zero podcast of Sept. 13 wherein he interviews Anna Slatz, the founder of Reduxx Magazine. Reduxx focuses on the worst of the transgender dictatorship and especially the unbelievable level of danger and violence that some transgender women (men) have committed and how that horrific situation is tolerated and even promoted by society's institutions and governments. For instance, the case where a man who raped an infant, almost KILLING the child with his penis, has been quietly moved to women's prison where he leers at female inmates and their babies. How about, man who beat two infants to death (very much deliberately, as in it was planned) now awaits breast implants as he resides in woman's California prison? You think it's unbelievable and then.....it gets worse.
There's another possibility. Rapists and child molesters are generally physically attacked in prison, by other men. They are the lowest of the low, the scum at the bottom of the barrel. And many of them "discover" their trans identity in prison AFTER being arrested for a sex crime.
These guys aren't being persecuted in prison for their gender identity. They're being punished by other male prisoners for the nature of their crimes.
Of course the rapists would rather be with smaller, weaker, and less vindictive prisoners: actual women.
Thank you Mary for courageously compiling these statistics for us.
Thank you, Mary. A very important essay. I respectfully suggest that it be posted on UnHerd (a broader audience).
All this brings top of mind for me something I have wondered about. Why is sex the primary thing that these people identify themselves by? It's like, is there any other aspect to your being besides this? It just seems like sex, how I like it, what accoutrements go with it, how I dress how I do my hair is defined by sex, what groups I want to hang out with, what I do in my spare time....it is in fact all roads lead to SEX!. It's the be all end all of everything. What is with that? Maybe the squeaky wheels here are necessarily the ones for whom it is all consuming and who are getting the most attention, but seriously, that cannot be all there is to it. It is weird. Am I correct that mental illness is disproportionately represented in the trans population? If I'm wrong about that, my bad. But, it seems like unhealthy obsession/addiction. Maybe there is a 'normal' population of trans people who just go about life, have other hobbies, interests, and facets to their personality and we just don't hear about them. Has anyone else wondered about this?
Oh THAT statistic
It wasn’t that long ago that it was received wisdom that men in make up, obscuring their true identity, such as clowns and female impersonators were potentially dangerous and to be given a wide berth. Sometimes “received wisdom” apparently correlates with clear statistical evidence. Maybe some social norms protect the vulnerable and should be retained?
"So what’s going on here"? What's going on here is that the progressive establishment are putty in the hands of any 'human rights' scam - however manipulative, however ridiculous - just so long as it makes them feel virtuous.
Hello, I think the number in the first paragraph might be a mistype, from the original statistic. 161, not 181. Have a nice afternoon! (this is not written in the sarcastic internet tone, its the middle-aged mum on email one).
The next time someone berates me for saying that progressivism is a religion, I'm going to point them to that billboard.
Mary wants to be thorough, but do we really need a study to "prove" that men who are obsessed with sexuality are more likely to be sex offenders? If I'm obsessed with food, I'm likely to be fat. No study is needed in either case.
Amen! I've been waiting for an article that connected the dots between these stats in the UK, Canada and the US. It's pretty damning--a MtF identity is highly, highly associated with greater propensity to commit a sex crime. And that means there is a very good and legitimate reason to keep them out of female spaces, and also for their crimes to not be recorded as having been committed by a female.
Thank you for writing this up, Mary. So much bothers me about the effects of gender ideology, but this really enrages me because it shows without doubt that transferring men who identify as women into women’s prisons is akin to a war crime in its cruelty. Especially considering these are policies crafted by left-leaning ppl in the Western world, who proclaim themselves defenders of women (at least in US politics).
We can only draw two conclusions: either (1) men who identify as women are more likely to be sexual predators, or (2) predatory men exploit gender self-ID. This alone should be enough to scrap gender intrusive policies.
I’m going to put my Angela Davis wig on and apply the same logic to trans sexual criminals she applied so successfully to the Soledad Brothers: the 50% figure is prima facie evidence of institutional discrimination against this marginalized community. It’s normal behaviors have been criminalized by a trans-hating establishment.
If you suggest that these innocent trans criminals committed serious crimes by any definition I’ll say that only proves that the police and judicial system is totally corrupt and has framed innocent trannies. That defense worked decades after the Soledad Brothers to spectacular effect in the OJ Simpson trial and works routinely right now in all the Blue jurisdictions with Soros-funded DAs.
I did notice a plethora of pointless facts and irrelevant logic in your article, but who cares about the truth? Get on the right side of history!
Good article. It's depressing to feel like articles like this need to be written, but they do
No no no. We were repeatedly told this kind of thing would never happen. That statistic is un-possible.
