In Canada, men who claim to be women can be moved to a female prison. They do not need to take hormones or have surgery - it is the "feeling" that is important. There have been several instances of sexual assault in Canada's prisons by trans-identified males. This makes me sick. Women in prison are vulnerable, but men's feelings take precedent. No one in the government cares that there have been sexual assaults. They just want to show the world how "fair" they are. Once again, women suffer at the hands of men.
[*Moderator's note: the submission said 'rape' but included a link to a news story that said 'sexual assault' and that further details were not made available by the prison. If there is another story confirming a rape then please send it to me and I will update the post. You can email me directly].
