It’s utter lunacy. It’s a war on women. It’s vile, evil, and it’s heartbreaking. What am I referring to? A recent article highlighted “a nightmare’s worst nightmare” for women in women’s prisons in states such as California. In California, inmates are able to be housed in the facility that aligns with their “gender identity”—with devastating consequences for women.
The article states that “prison officers must privately ask inmates in the intake process if they identify as transgender, nonbinary, or intersex. Inmates can then request a move to the facility that houses other inmates in line with their preferred identity.” Unsurprisingly, hundreds of men are claiming a transgender identity and requesting a transfer to a female facility.
Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows this is a terrible idea. Men are bigger and stronger than women, and all kinds of atrocities can take place in such a situation. (But, of course, when people deny the sin nature of man and believe man is basically good, they will make disastrous decisions!) So how is the state of California dealing with the influx of biological males to female prisons? Apparently by handing out contraceptives, Plan B (an abortifacient often advertised as “morning after” birth control), and offering abortion services, prenatal care, and adoption referrals to “pregnant people.”
A left-wing feminist organization, quoted in the article linked above, explains what this means:
The new resources are a tacit admission by officials that women should expect to be raped when housed in prison with men, where all sex is considered non-consensual by default within the system.
One inmate told The Los Angeles Times that staffers have been preparing for the reality of pregnancies following the law’s passage: “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.”
Transgender ideology is a war on women. Not only are the survivors of rape and sexual assaults who become pregnant referred to by the very de-humanizing language of “pregnant people” on posters, but the state’s solution to the wave of rapes that they know is coming is to focus on preventing pregnancy or destroying or (thankfully, in some cases) caring for the child—not on refusing to allow biological males to be housed with women so such situations won’t happen in the first place!
The LGBTQ+ agenda really isn’t about caring for women or people in general. It is more about advancing an ideology, regardless of the consequences on bystanders and even those within the movement. Ultimately, it’s a movement rooted in rebellion against God and his natural order (Genesis 1:27 and 2:24), so this news shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Incarcerated women are people made in God’s very image with dignity and worth. What is happening in California, and other states (and spreading), is disgusting and evil in the sight of God (consider that under the Old Testament law, rape carried with it the death penalty). We must stand against the lunacy and denial of biological reality of transgenderism and advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves.
