Is it logical to assume that a male rapist would attack women, when imprisoned with them?
Not in 21st-century Britain, apparently.
Incarcerated transgenders have carried out at least seven sex attacks on actual women in UK jails, MailOnline is reporting.
The dangers of imprisoning biological men alongside biological women are something to which government officials and other perversion-apologists appear blind. Prison officials are in fact still allowing trans inmates to move into other-sex jails in Britain.
Prisoners born male but who impersonate females were first allowed to request a transfer to women’s jails in England and Wales in 2016. A year later a convicted rapist was moved to women’s jail HMP New Hall and sexually attacked two female inmates.
“Karen White” dressed as a woman but was still legally male and had not even undergone a sex change operation. He was jailed for life in 2018 by a judge who labeled him a “highly manipulative” predator.
Now the Ministry of Justice has admitted the case was not isolated. In response to a Parliamentary question from former Labour Party General Secretary Baroness McDonagh, Ministers have described several other sex assaults by trans prisoners.
Incredibly, the initial answer left out the White case and was only corrected after The Mail on Sunday intervened.
The Ministry of Justice said: “Since 2010, out of the 124 sexual assaults that occurred in the female estate a total of seven of those were sexual assaults against females in custody perpetrated by transgender individuals.”
That means that although trans women make up about one per cent of the 3,600 female jail population, they are to blame for 5.6 per cent of sexual assaults there.
The Ministry of Justice also said there had been “no reported incidents of any type of sexual assault against prison officers by trans prisoners,” despite claims to the contrary.
