The U.K. will no longer allow males who identify as transgender women to be housed in women’s prisons if they have been convicted of sexual offenses or have intact male genitalia, according to a Wednesday announcement from the U.K. government.

Males who adopt transgender identities have been housed in U.K. women’s prisons since 2016; seven sexual assaults in women’s prisons were committed by transgender inmates without gender recognition certificates since then, according to The Guardian. Of the 163 transgender prisoners in England and Wales as of 2019, 81 had been convicted of a sexual crime and 34 were held in women’s prisons.
“The safety of all prisoners is paramount. These changes will ensure a sensitive and common-sense approach to meeting the needs of women in custody, while we continue to ensure that transgender prisoners are appropriately supported in whichever estate they are located in,” the announcement read.

Scotland: A #trans woman has been convicted for raping two women in Clydebank and Glasgow. Isla Bryson, formerly known as Adam Graham, is being sent to a women’s prison in Stirling. At the trial, jurors were explicitly told “Adam” was her “dead name.” https://t.co/EsmsKiJ7zC pic.twitter.com/YjBLxF8AA2

Ministers will be allowed to let some males with intact genitalia or sexual crime records into women’s prisons in “the most truly exceptional cases,” the announcement reads, though it does not specify under what conditions this would be allowed.
The previous transgender prison policy has stirred outrage and controversy since 2016, but anger erupted in recent days after Isla Bryson, who was convicted of raping two women, adopted a transgender identity and was placed in a women’s prison in Scotland, according to the BBC. Bryson will be kept apart from the general prison until a risk assessment is conducted, at which point authorities will decide where to place the prisoner.

EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?
Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?
Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?
No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.
Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.
WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
