Connecticut prison officials are working to establish a new policy for housing transgender inmates following a court order handing the Correction Department custody of a male minor who identifies as a woman.  The 16-year-old is extremely violent, and you can read about his crimes here. The juvenile was committed to DCF in November after violently assaulting a woman at Bridgeport Detention Center.

In the juvenile system, the teen has been recognized as a “transgender female” and has been housed in female living sections at child detention centers and DCF facilities, or in isolation at male facilities.  Given the male’s violent history, as well as his maleness, this is an appalling civil rights violation against actual females.

A Connecticut court ordered the youth transferred to the DOC, initially for an assessment at the state’s only women’s prison. Thereafter, the correction commissioner, James E. Dzurenda, will decide where he will be placed for a longer period.

Historically, DOC policy has been to place transgender people with the inmate population they correspond with biologically. Michael P. Lawlor,  Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s advisor for criminal justice policy, said the DOC was re-examining its policy and considering best practices from around the country.

“I think the time has come in Connecticut and every state for people to adopt a clear policy on this,” Lawlor said. “Moving forward, you want to have a process by which you treat prisoners consistent with state laws and we have gender non-discrimination policies on the books here in Connecticut.”

In 2011, the legislature passed a bill making it illegal to discriminate against someone based on their gender identity and expression. Gov. Malloy signed it into law.

Lawlor said the issue gets complicated in the prison system. Correction administrators need to have a way to verify an inmate as being legitimately transgender, he said. Otherwise, inmates could claim to be transgender in order to be transferred.

In the meantime, the teen has been ordered to the women’s prison for 72 hours. In a written statement, DOC Commissioner Dzurenda said the department was working to accommodate the youth.

“We will do everything in our power to provide a safe, secure and humane environment for this individual, as we would for any other person under our supervision,” he said.

Dzurenda  offered no such comfort to the girls and women housed with this violent male.

  1. People need to wake up because this is only going to get worse. A violent male juvenile broke the jaw of a female staff member. Apparently, this teenage boy still has his male genitalia. Males should not be housed in female correctional facilities. This is endangering females and encroaching on their privacy rights.

    Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that a male who identifies as a “woman” has assaulted girls and women. A man by the name of Christopher, “Jessica” Hambrook preyed on women in two different women’s shelters. He stalked and sexually assaulted them. He was allowed into the women’s shelters because he called himself “Jessica” and identified as transgender.

    For people unfamiliar with the way that most “gender identity” laws work, it kind of goes like this.

    (1.) Under most of these “gender identity” laws, sex reassignment is basically optional. All they have to do is “identity” as a woman. Many transwomen have fully intact male genitalia. About two years ago, a man by the name of Colleen Francis trotted around nude in the women’s locker room at Evergreen State College. At the time of this incident, Francis definitely had male genitalia. Francis is a retired military man and father of a couple of children He is definitely male. A high school girl’s swim team was using the pool area, and a seventeen year old girl saw his male genitals. Twenty years ago, males like Colleen Francis would have been arrested, or kicked out of the women’s locker room. The actual campus police report says, “her legs open with her male genitalia showing”.
    (2.) It doesn’t matter if they are a registered sex offender or not. Transgender activists still fought for the right of registered sex offender Paula Witherspoon to use women’s restrooms. He was born male, and his victim was a teenage girl.
    (3.) Even if they undergo sex reassignment surgery, it doesn’t mean they are sane, or aren’t a sociopathic serial killer. Any male can fly to Thailand to undergo sex reassignment surgery. If people have the money, they don’t care if they are sane or not. There is currently a case in Washington State where a transwoman, Douglas, “Donna” Perry is on trial for murdering three women. Douglas, “Donna” Perry is by his own admission, a “sociopath”.

    Richard, “Sherri”, Masbruch tied two women up and sadistically tortured them with an electrical wire before raping them. He definitely had his penis when he committed these brutal crimes. While he was in prison for this crime, he self-mutilated his own penis and had to have it removed. At any rate, he started calling himself “Sherri”. The California Department of Corrections sent this monster to a women’s prison.

    Also, there are numerous cases of incarcerated males who sue the state they are held in for hormones and surgery. Robert, “Michelle”, Kosilek murdered his wife. With the help of transgender activists, he was successful in getting the taxpayers to fund his surgery. If a man murders a woman, the state will pay for his surgery and female hormones. Ronnie Darnell repeatedly raped a thirteen year old girl. He is another male who expects taxpayers to pay for his “gender identity” treatment.

    The safety and personal privacy rights of girls and women are clearly taking a back seat to politically correct insanity. Moreover, many of the female inmates have histories of domestic violence abuse, rape, and PTSD. No one can prove one psychological diagnosis, “gender identity”, is more important than another equally valid psychological condition, PTSD in women.

    This must stop, and we need to start SUING THEM FOR THE HARM THEY CAUSE US.


  2. “Moving forward, you want to have a process by which you treat prisoners consistent with state laws and we have gender non-discrimination policies on the books here in Connecticut.”

    This violent teenage boy physically assaulted a female staff member, and he is now the poor victim. How will female correctional officers handle an angry teenage boy?


    Every female who has been brutalized by this violent boy should sue the state for placing a violent male into a facility for girls. Their emotional and physical suffering are just as important as his psychological belief that he is a “girl”

    I feel sorry for this troubled boy, but he needs to spend time in a men’s prison. It’s obvious that he has no respect for female authority figures.
