A significant minority of men will go out of their way to gain access to preferred victims. You can't be this clueless, CB. This never happens in schools, churches, with coaches, youth organizations, right? 

 

Hello??????? Men don't have to do anything but say they are a woman now. No wigs necessary. And you are seriously asking if women can be stalked anywhere? Does it not occur to you that is why we want and need protected spaces?

You seriously need to educate yourself. You are obviously oblivious to any stats that aren't put out by advocacy groups. So let's ask you a question. How many of the males being sent to women's prisons are sex offenders or have committed violence against women? I mean, they wouldn't even consider putting an intact male who had tortured women and raped them in a small cell with a biological female....right? 

 

I am open to looking at any data you might have to support your position.  As I stated earlier I don’t have a position on any transgender issues because I haven’t seen any studies showing increased risk to women in restrooms by transgender women.  So if you know something, please share it

Transgender prisoners are five times more likely to carry out sex attacks on inmates at women’s jails than other prisoners are, official figures show.

Male prisoners who were transferred to women’s jails during gender reassignment and women inmates who are transitioning committed seven of the 124 sex attacks recorded between 2010 and 2018. They occurred at HMP Low Newton in Co Durham, Foston Hall in Derbyshire, Peterborough, Bronzefield in Middlesex and New Hall, West Yorkshire.

An inmate at Illinois’ largest women’s prison says she was raped by a transgender inmate who was transferred into her housing unit last year, and claims Illinois Department of Corrections officials conducted a “sham investigation” to help cover up the incident.

In a federal lawsuit filed last week, a Jane Doe inmate at the Logan Correctional Center in central Illinois said that after being sexually assaulted in June 2019, she was coerced by a supervisory officer into denying the attack took place and then punished for filing a “false” complaint under the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA).

The suit names Logan’s acting warden Beatrice Calhoun as a defendant, along with officers Brent Keeler and Todd Sexton.

“The transfer of transgender inmates from male to female prisons has been a contentious policy within IDOC,” the plaintiff’s Peoria-based attorneys wrote in a five-page complaint. “In an attempt to justify the transfers, Defendants Sexton, Calhoun, Keeler and currently other unknown IDOC employees covered up the sexual assault of Plaintiff and tried to falsely classify it as consensual, to keep it from being considered a PREA violation.”

The California prison system has received 261 applications since January 1 from transgender, intersex, or non-binary inmates to transfer to facilities that match their preferred gender identity, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday.

The requests were filed after a state law came into effect allowing transgender inmates to transfer to different prisons. Around 1 percent of prisoners in California, 1,129 inmates in total, have notified the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation that they are transgender, intersex, or non-binary.

 
 

The transfers have been welcomed by transgender women who reported suffering sexual violence while incarcerated at men’s prisons. However, inmates at Central California Women’s Facility in Chowchilla told the Times that staff have warned them of potential sexual violence from men who may try to take advantage of the transfer system.

Guards said “that if we think it’s bad now, be prepared for the worst. That it’s going to be off the hook, it’s going to be jumping,” inmate Tomiekia Johnson told the Times. “They say we’re going to need a facility that’s going to be like a maternity ward. They say we’re going to have an inmate program where inmates become nannies. 

he California initiative to consider transfer requests from transgender inmates was passed in part to align the state with the f Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003. The law requires prison agencies to decide on a case-by-case basis whether to transfer inmates based on their sexuaMassachusetts and Connecticut have legislation similar to California’s allowing inmate transfers. The first such transfer took place in 2019, after a transgender woman jailed in Massachusetts sued the state in order to be placed in a women’s prison.

A half dozen men have been transferred to the Washington Correctional Center for Woman, according to an employee at the facility.

 

The employee tells KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson Show that the women’s facility in Pierce County has adopted the practice of allowing a transfer for any person who identifies as female. Those transfers are being housing in the general population with female cellmates, the employee says.

...

The concern among staff and inmates is a risk of sexual assault. The employee cites a recent incident in which an inmate from a male facility raped a female in the women’s prison upon arrival. The transferred inmate, according to the employee, is incarcerated for a sex offense and has “fully functional male genitalia, a history of violence and sexual depravity in the community, and has been found guilty of sexual assault against other inmates while housed in the men’s facilities.”

“He is a proven sexual predator, having committed multiple crimes against women, yet the State of Washington had no problem moving him into a women’s facility and housing him with the most vulnerable in our population (our mental health unit),” the employee wrote.

Original case, quite horrific

Stats….

longterm studies finds criminality rate stays the same for male to female (iow, transgender women are just as dangerous as nontrans male prisoners) while female to male increase criminality (transgender men are more dangerous than nontrans female prisoners).

A safe space is not just about being safe, but feeling safe as well. A woman will not see a shelter as an alternative to domestic abuse if she does not feel she would be safe there. Women who have been targets of harassment and abuse won’t venture to gyms, rec centers, public parks, etc if they don’t feel safe in the public or private restrooms and lockers they would need to use in order to have extended time away from home. 

So transgender people are dangerous? Do you mean like back in the 60s and 70s when white women felt unsafe with black families moving into "their" neighborhoods? 

 

PS. Came back to add this because I just read a new thread Scott started about the boy scouts. How do you feel about the Boy Scouts letting girls join a all male organization? Is that a safe situation? Let's say it's a troop of 15 males and 1 female, how safe is that? That's what I don't understand about this argument. You're arguing females have the right to fell "safe" meaning biological males are dangerous, but at the same time femenist are trying to break down any organization that is male only traditionally, even for young boys. 

  Using your logic, would college campuses be safer if we separated the sexes again in the name of safety? We could do an experiment, let's make University of Virginia all female and Virginia Tech all male. If rape and harassment claims go down then maybe we should try it throughout the USA, for safety.

So you read an article and now your possibly convinced that the T in lgbtq are a bunch of sexually predators? Or possibly faking being trans ? If so, does that mean the other letters represented, L Lesbian, G Gay, B Bisexual and Q Queer, should I question if they're also possibly faking ?

My daughter is a lesbian and she's attracted to females, should she be allowed to shower with other women? All kinds of articles online about women raping women. Marie Claire magazine plus many other sources  talks about women raping women. You should check out those articles as well.

I think everyone would agree that prison bathrooms are not safe places.  But what is being discussed is whether normal bathrooms are safe if transgenders share them with women.   Does anyone  have any incidents where a transgender woman ***aulted a woman in a bathroom?

I am on vacation right now and don’t have good cell service but I do want to respond.  I can comment more later.

We really aren’t talking about violence in prisons here, we are talking about whether it is safe for women to allow a transgender to use the woman’s bathroom. I am asking how often a transgender has sexually assaulted a woman in a bathroom.  If this is a big issue where is the data on this issue?   So far no one has reported even one case.  To me, that makes this a non issue and is similar to being afraid of black peoples moving into a white neighborhood.  
 

so please let’s see the data on restroom assaults by transgenders in public restrooms and then decide if this is a real issue or just prejudice.  Like I. said earlier, I don’t have an opinion on this because I don’t know the data. But I am not going to make a judgment based on unfounded fear.

How do the women and girls in restrooms, spas, dressing rooms, prisons, etc., know if the person with the male parts is trans or not?

I think it is a matter of feeling uncomfortable more than being unsafe. If women started coming into men’s bathroom and showers, I wouldnt be concerned about being assaulted… I would just feel uncomfortable

So if white women feel uncomfortable with black women using the same restroom, then what do we do?

I agree that women should feel safe when using the restroom and if it turns out that transgenders are attacking women in restrooms then measures should be taken   But if that fear is not actually based on anything but fear, then overcoming that fear based on facts and education seems like a better approach   That is how we have dealt with unfounded fears in other situations in society

Please don’t speak for women. Twenty percent of women have been sexually assaulted in their lifetime compared to 1 in 71 men. 

I didn’t intend on it. I probably poorly phrased it, but my intention was to say that even if the stats didn’t show that assault in bathrooms was an issue, there was still reason enough to not allow trans into bathrooms.

Are you suggesting that potentially seeing someone of a different skin color is the same as potentially seeing someone of a different gender’s genitalia?

Not that I doubt but I’d love to see a source for that as well as a definition of sexual assault. I was sexually harassed once (girl grabbed my butt and tussled my hair in middle school). Even though it made me very uncomfortable at the time, I can’t imagine it compares to what women go through because I was never fearful for my physical safety.

I meant to include that.
