Show-Me Missouri Paying For Transgender Hormonal Therapy And Offering Access To 'Gender-Affirming' Hygienic Products



This is important not only because the burden typically falls to taxpayers but also because it represents a very real shift in an approach to local crime and punishment.

Checkit:

Post-Dispatch: U.S. judge orders Missouri prison to give hormonal therapy, other treatment to transgender inmate

Deets:

The Missouri prison system must provide hormone therapy for a transgender inmate serving a murder sentence.

Jesica Hicklin, a 38-year-old-transgendered-woman, was sentenced to life in prison at age 16 after she was convicted of fatally shooting a man during a drug-related crime in the western Missouri town of Clinton in 1995.

The (recent) ruling said there was sufficient evidence that Hicklin was at risk of irreparable harm, including emotional distress, suicide and self-castration, if she didn’t receive treatment. That treatment includes hormone therapy, permanent body hair removal and access to “gender-affirming” hygienic products and other products from the prison commissary store. Those products are not typically available at the all-male Potosi prison, according to the lawsuit.

The federal policy was enacted after the Bureau of Prisons settled a lawsuit brought by a transgender inmate in Missouri. It says officials must not only evaluate prisoners for gender dysphoria but also treat those who have it, whether therapy was prescribed before or after the inmate entered federal custody.

You decide . . .

Absolutely insane. A Magistrate ruled on this so hopefully the District Judge will hear the case and stop this insanity. If it goes further, who knows how the Appellate Court will rule.

9:31, it appears there may have been a settlement that will bind the bureau of prisons to offer special services to transies. It likely was part of a "sue and settle" arrangement, which is a method administrative agencies use to do whatever they want without needing a law or rule to authorize it.

"Believe science" means nothing. Clarify what you tried to say.

The science is that HE was born with XY chromosomes not XX. No matter how he mutilates himself, he will always be male. Playing along with his psychosis only makes you the idiot.

My thoughts exactly 12:50. “She” will argue that the male who was convicted of murder no longer exists now that “she’s” a woman with access to tampons in the pen.
