A California law allowing transgender inmates to choose the gender they are imprisoned as has received backlash from a women’s rights group which has pointed out that it allows biological male criminals to “prey on women.”
In a letter to Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom, the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) wrote, “The State of California is violating the civil rights of incarcerated women and subjecting them to serious physical, psychological, and emotional harm.”
The letter adds, “SB 132, which went into effect on Jan 1, 2021, has already resulted in dozens of male inmates being transferred to women’s correctional facilities at CCWF and CIW, with hundreds more on the way. On behalf of these incarcerated women, WoLF demands that the State of California and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation take immediate action to protect the women in its custody.”
“Under the law as written, there is no method to screen out males who genuinely self-identify as transgender from those who are using the system to prey on women,” the letter continues. “Even if sincere self-identification was the criterion for transfer, however, it would not mitigate or remove the danger posed to women. A 2009 report found 20% of trans-identified men in California are sex offenders, and 50% have committed crimes against persons. Based on the known criminal histories of the men who have been transferred thus far, this study appears to understate the problem. We’re informed that at least one of the trans-identified male prisoners is on death row, and a considerable number of the others are serving life sentences for brutal crimes.”
WoLF Legal Director Lauren Adams said, “We are working with a woman who was punched in the face so hard by a new transfer that she couldn’t chew for three days. He was taken away and released back in a different yard with no restrictions. He was her cellmate. She had to sleep with him.”
According to WoLF, “Those running the prison system know how dangerous conditions have become for the women in California state custody. Many of the correctional officers have openly acknowledged that they expect the women will be raped and assaulted, there will likely be pregnancies, and, in general, the environment will be ripe for exploitation of the women and challenging to control. Some COs have privately expressed concern and have reportedly urged leaders to take immediate action to right this wrong. Conversely, at least one CO has used this situation to torment the women in his care, threatening to put men in their cells to rape them. The LA Times even reported that prison officials are already aware that men are pretending to identify as transgender so that they can access women’s facilities.”
California currently has 273 transfer requests, 266 are men at male institutions requesting transfer to female institutions, and only 7 are women at female institutions requesting to be transferred to male institutions.
A spokesperson for the California Department of Corrections told the Washington Examiner the transfer process includes “a thorough review of the incarcerated person’s history prior to and during incarceration, their crime, arrest and criminal history, trial and sentencing documentation, medical and mental health needs.”
According to Adams, however, many of the male transfers have been convicted of forcible rape. In their letter, WoLF states, “We demand the following: Immediately halt transfers of male inmates to women’s facilities, and remove all-male inmates who have been transferred thus far; Halt the processing of applications for transfers pending a safety assessment and proper notice and comment period, and Barring that, segregate male inmates together and allow women to refuse sharing housing with male inmates.”
Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes
Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”
As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.
Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.
The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”
The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”
“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
U.S. Military Hands out Toys, Hygiene Products to Afghan Refugees Arriving at Fort McCoy
11 flights are reported to have landed at Volk Field Air National Guard at Camp Douglas, Wisconsin yesterday, according to the Director of Public Affairs of the 88th Readiness Division at Ft. McCoy.
Wisconsin’s local NBC station reports, “Transportation, temporary housing, medical screening, and general support are being provided for 50,000 Afghan evacuees as quickly as possible.”
“It was not specified the number of refugees that had arrived on those flights” and there are already a few thousand Afghan refugees living at Fort McCoy. More will reportedly be arriving in the coming days.
“In time, more than 10,000 men, women, and children may get processed through the fort before relocating across the country according to figures released by both the Department of Defense, along with state and local officials and agencies” WXOW News 19.
Video shows U.S. Army Soldiers handing out toys and basic necessities such as soap and other hygiene products to the refugees as they arrive at the Fort McCoy base. “Items being handed out are part of 1,600 comfort kits currently being issued by the American Red Cross, reports the U.S. Army 181st Multifunctional Training Brigade.”
“The Department of Defense, through U.S. Northern Command, with the support of the Department of State and Department of Homeland Security is assisting in the effort.
The initiative will provide Afghan personnel essential support at secure locations outside Afghanistan” adds the NBC News affiliate.
WXOW News 19 detailed a “day in the life” at the fort with the refugees:
