Skip to comments.Spain: Transsexuals can choose jails (based upon their "psycho-social identity")

(hopefully I don't need to add the "sarcasm" tag to that......)
One slight problem.....from the article:
"Prison officials would conduct an inquiry to confirm the sexual identity of the prisoner, notably by requiring the inmate to show proof of having started the sex change at least one year before being jailed."
Who cares which jail, as long as they lock the perverts up?
So, what are you in for?
To be included in or removed from the HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA PINGLIST, please FreepMail either DBeers or DirtyHarryY2K.
do you get tool look through the other before deciding?
So I guess if a guy pretends to be a transexual to get into a prison filled with woman prisoners it's ok?
I don't know how the selection process works, but you might wind up in a women's facility where they can kick your butt, or gang-rape you. Best thing is to never go there.
Remember Rush's great bit about the "male lesbians"? Works for me!
Gee, makes you wanna go to prison. The other prison, of course.
Yes, I saw that. but what does "starting sex change" include? Taking hormones and seeing a therapist? Both of those are completely reversible by just quitting I think.
Both of those are completely reversible by just quitting I think.
And yes again.
Population of women's prison: 350,000
Population of men's prison: zero
Some people may object to such a Governmental policy shift on the grounds that it not only legitimizes what many consider to be a "lifestyle choice" or a mental disorder but also becomes another weapon that criminals can use to manipulate the system when they are placed in that system for the express purpose of limiting their ability to manipulate the world around them.
Regardless of what body parts you have a surgeon hack off or add, every cell in your body contains DNA that specifically identifies you as male or female. Therefore, these gruesome surgical procedures don't actually change your sex, they are merely exercises in carpentry and remodeling if you will, without changing the essential foundation or framework of the house..
So, all of this ultimately comes down to it being essentially the state of mind that the person is in which determines their 'gender'. and so which prison they are sent to. Some find it objectionable to make such determinations based not upon physical reality but on a person's state of mind.
We already have a precedent of clinically deranged criminals being sent to prison mental hospitals, but this circumstance will be dictated by a clinical diagnosis of insanity. Here in the USA the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from a categorization of mental disorders a few years ago (without the usual scientific studies and factual rationale....it was an entirely political move).
Therefore, we now have a situation where a criminal's state of mind and / or lifestyle choice is allowed to dictate their type of incarceration but it's not being done on the grounds of it being a mental disorder. Many view this sort of thing as being an erosion of the severity of the penalty being served (a woman's prison might be viewed as preferable, on numerous levels, to a men's prison)
I think Spain was better off under Franco.
Ok. Just making sure I wasn't crazy to see potential nefarious motivations.
The Muslims are going to win over there.
Indeed, although one may also argue that they have already won, as evidenced by Spain's capitulation in the war on terror.
Putting criminals in charge of their own destiny, in large measure, further erodes Spain's status as any sort of a nation that takes its own criminal laws seriously. Terrorists watching world events will see Spain as a weakling in the world. Terrorists, being cowards, eagerly exploit perceived weaknesses.
Just tell me to stop if it's too much.
I'm trying to get out of what I should be doing by sneaking onto FR.
I'm sure neither of you has ever done that.
I just double pung Linda's article out by mistake after waglebee already got to it first. **embarrassed hiding head**
Seems like Spaniards are confused.
Right off the top of my head I don't recall what policy regarding transsexuals exists in US or UK prisons, but I have no doubt that if the Left were to have it's way there would be an identical policy to Spain's here in America.
"The Muslims are going to win over there"
May not, if the female transsexuals who used to be woman but now are men will get equal treatment and have to spend time in the mens cells.
In this case the Muslim men will fear of going to prison where they would be treated equally to those whom they perceive as females, and thus would be too afraid of committing crimes .
