Britain to facilitate prisoners in sex change operation

Further indication, reported by Sky News, that Britain must hit absolute bottom before it has any chance of turning around:

Prisoners who want to change sex are to be allowed to choose padded bras, clothing and make-up to help with their transformation.

The Ministry of Justice has told jails sex-change inmates should also be able to buy “gender appropriate” clothing from a home shopping catalogue.

The rules apply to inmates in prisons for men and women.

The detailed set of mandatory guidelines has already been circulated and will come into force next week.

“An establishment must permit prisoners who consider themselves transsexual and wish to begin gender reassignment to live permanently in their acquired gender,” the 20-page document says.

Prison officers are told that transsexuals can use “various items to assist with their presentation”.

“These can range from sophisticated prostheses to padded bras. Regardless of their level of sophistication, access to them can only be restricted in exceptional circumstances.”

The guidelines say the only reason to prevent sex-change prisoners from getting the items they need is if they present a security risk.

They continue: “Make-up that is vital to presenting in the acquired gender, such as foundation to cover up beard growth, may not be restricted.

“If prisoners have funds available, they can purchase gender-appropriate clothing from the Argos Additions clothing catalogue.”

This really shows how sick Great Britain has become, and I can only assume we are next. The West is infected with the virus called Liberalism, as we all know.

There is no distinction between rights and privileges anymore. Liberals often recite the “the pursuit of happiness” as if it means that government and society must oblige to anything in their pursuit, and if they are denied something and that negates their “pursuit of happiness,” these people react as if their rights are being trampled upon.

As for the prisoners here, they have no right or privilege to order custom clothing or anything of any sort whatsoever. The reason they are in prison is precisely because they have proven they cannot abide by society’s rules. By committing murder, rape or burglary they then forfeit all luxuries, rights and privileges available to law-abiding citizens.

These prisoners who want to identify themselves as a gender in which they are not, to me, exemplifies how sick they really are, and as far as I’m concerned, prison seems like the appropriate domicile in which they should dwell.

Morgan writes from England:

I can remember when it was illegal to be queer here; then I can remember when they made queerdom legal; Now, apparently, they are encouraging it; I’ve got to get out before they make it compulsory (that is the logical progression).

Can I move to America? Montana looks good.
