Richard Masbruch was convicted in 1991 of rape, sodomy, false imprisonment, torture, and burglary. He was sentenced to 2 life sentences.

Jason Hann beat his 2-year old son Jason to death, along with his 10-month old daughter Montana. Their bodies were found in storage containers. His third infant child showed signs of abuse but survived. He was sentenced to death.

David Chester Warfield stabbed, shot, and murdered 2 women and their adopted son. He is awaiting trial.

Rodney James was convicted of kidnapping and murder. He was sentenced to 17 year without the possibility of parole.

Jeffrey Norsworthy was conviced of second degree murder and was sentened to 17 years to life.

What do all these inmates have in common besides being violent predators?

They are all being housed in women prisons in California. Yes, biological men are being housed with female inmates in California. California correctional facilities now join those in Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York City and Massachusetts in allowing gender identity when housing inmates.

What does that mean?

All it takes is a biological male saying they self-ID as woman. From that moment on, nothing further is asked, their records are changed from “male” to “female” and they are placed in women facilities, housed with women, shower and sleep with women and no questions are asked.

That’s all it takes, thanks to SB 132. https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200SB132

I honestly have much more to say about this and will continue to write more, but I wanted to first get the work started to educate people about this travesity and ask you to read, sign, and share the petition below to have this reversed.

What struck me at first glance was this has come about because of the violence against trans people in jail. No one should ever be harmed, but why hasn’t anyone spoken up for women? Why is it that as soon as men become the target, we now need State and Federal law to step in? Why wasn’t this important before?

Because as soon as men were being affected, then it became a problem, but violence against women inmates has been going on since the beginning of incarcerating women.

Where is the protection for them?

The solution is not to take away the safety and security of women by housing males in women-only spaces.

The soulution is not to take away space where women can recover and heal.

The solution is to ensure that ALL inmates are protected while in custody. That is where the reform needs to take place and not by taking away the rights of many to secure the rights of a few.

Women are continuing to be erased, but there is something you can do.

You can speak up and let your voice be heard.

If you know of someone who wants their story told, feel free to send them my way. I’ll speak for them if they can’t or don’t know how. Comment here and I’ll reach out to you.

Support those of us who are speaking up. Share the petition below and tell others what is happening not only here in the US, but Canada and England as well.

Don’t let your rights as a woman be taken away.

Don’t allow yourself to be erased.

Demand same-sex spaces be yours and mine and demand that the transferring of men into women spaces immediately halt.

Please write to your Federal Representative. You can find out who this at https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/CA

I disagree that sex and gender are the samething.

I disagree that I am being forced to give up my rights and those of women just to “play nice and be quiet.”

I disagree that violence towards anyone is to be “handled” by redirecting it towards another group.

Enough is enough.


Speak up!

    Outraged doesn’t begin to cover it.

    Susan, I don’t know what to say. I really don’t. As an LGBTQ ally, it makes sense to me to have a place where individuals who self-identify as female would be housed. At the same time, it is horrifying that these violent offenders would be under the same roof as females who have no way of escaping from them. I am truly appalled and speechless. I suppose this quandary had to happen eventually. When you are in the business of dealing with the various shades of mental problems (and sexual identities) that you do, it is inevitable at some point.

    Holy hell.

    Well, let’s see. They are State prisoners, not federal or county. The common sense thing would be to have one place to house these particularly violent prisoners who do identify this way together. Whether that would be a discrete unit within a facility or a separate facility altogether would likely be a matter of funding. Prisons are not cheap. However, the State does have the obligation of the safety of the other inmates and staff to consider. I assume that these people may be transitioning, but they still have the physiology of males for at least the first part of the process. That would make them more dangerous for the COs than a female of comparable size.

    I have owned horses all my life, Susan, and that has included stallions. I’ve castrated my share of them. The process is called “gelding” and I can tell you that it takes TIME for the “big brain” to engage and take over from the loss of those two “little brains”. Lots and lots of time and some of them never forget that they had them. When you mix a pathology of violence with a sexual identity like this? I really wonder if there really is a sexual identity thing there or something else. These people are in a very dark place and, frankly, I don’t want to follow them in there. It’s a horror show they can keep to themselves.

      It took me quite a while to get to writing the post. I have more to say and write, so I’m sifting through so much information and statistics. The even bigger problem is this is about to be federal law with The Equality Act which is based on the Californa SB132. I’ll be putting together a post about castration not working, but I still have a ton of research to do.

      I am getting daily stories of women inmates on what is happening inside the prisons and it’s not good. Harassed in showers, leering, etc. has started with no end in sight. Several hundred males have been arriving in the facilities.

      This isn’t, and never has been about trans women IMO. It’s yet another attack on women. If transwomen are being raped in prison, well…so are female inmates and there’s no excuse for any of it.

      I can almost guarantee taxpayers won’t pay for additional facilities for trans people. I don’t think that’s the solution.

      The solution is to make incarceration safe for everyone. Start with the people and the system. Start at the top.

      Please do write back. I’d love to continue our conversation and hear what else you think.
