File this in the category of “this is what happens when you accept the premises of the transgender movement.” From the BBC on September 6:
A transgender prisoner has admitted sexually assaulting inmates at a women’s jail. Karen White, 51, who was born male but now identifies as a woman, has pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual touching at New Hall Prison, Wakefield.
The offences took place between September and November last year. She has since been moved to a male prison. Details emerged when White appeared at Leeds Crown Court to admit to a rape committed outside prison. White previously admitted two further rapes, which also happened outside jail.
This is not the first time this has happened, and it will not be the last. The media insists on calling biological males—in this case, one who has been belatedly sent to a male prison with a few extra convictions under his belt—by female pronouns, perhaps giving some people the mistaken impression that there has been a sudden outbreak of female rapists. I do hope somebody is keeping track of these instances so that when polling “reveals” that women are committing an increasing number of sexual assaults, people can be informed that these rapists are actually just men in drag.
For anyone interested, my book on The Culture War, which analyzes the journey our culture has taken from the way it was to the way it is and examines the Sexual Revolution, hook-up culture, the rise of the porn plague, abortion, commodity culture, euthanasia, and the gay rights movement, is available for sale here.
