Jane Doe is a transgender teenager held at a Connecticut prison for women. His attorney, Aaron J, Romano, recently claimed his client, who identifies as a girl, is deteriorating at the women’s prison.  State Department of Children and Families officials say he has to be at York Correctional Institution in East Lyme because he physically attacked staffers and other residents at juvenile psychiatric treatment centers.  A Connecticut state court affirmed the move to adult prison based on his behavior; you can read that opinion here.

In a recent letter Jane Doe wrote, which appeared in the Hartford Courant, he said: “I admit I have acted out and got into fights; many DCF kids fight with staff and other kids.”

Jailed Connecticut transgender teen ‘deteriorating’ despite move within prison, lawyer says.

  1. This scares the living heck out of me. TEENAGE BOYS WITH A LONG HISTORY OF VIOLENCE DO NOT BELONG IN FACILITIES FOR FEMALES.

  2. Every female who has been injured by this very violent adolescent male offender should SUE THE STATE FOR ALLOWING IT TO HAPPEN. THE POLICIES OF THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT CREATED THE CONDITIONS THAT LEAD DIRECTLY TO THESE ATTACKS.

    HOW MANY FEMALE STAFF MEMBERS HAS THIS BIOLOGICAL MALE ASSAULTED?

    HOW MANY FEMALES HOUSED WITH HIM HAVE BEEN PHYSICALLY OR EMOTIONALLY HARMED BY HIS LONG HISTORY OF VIOLENCE?

    ALSO, JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY, HOW BIG IS THIS BOY COMPARED TO THE GIRLS? ONCE A MALE STARTS PUBERTY, HE CAN TOWER OVER FEMALES. PEOPLE CAN CALL HIM “SHE” ALL THEY WANT, BUT HE HAS THE STRENGTH AND SIZE ADVANTAGE.

    I PRAY THAT SOME FEMALE ISN’T INJURED OR KILLED.

    Again, this terrifies the hell out of me. It’s the stuff of nightmares.

  3. Doe is a female transgender child who was born male but identifies as female. She wrote that during the six-day court hearing last month in which a judge ultimately agreed to the DCF request to move her to York, “I was freaking out that I was going (to have to go to) a men’s prison.”

    FOR THE SAFETY OF OTHERS, HE SHOULD BE IN A MEN’S PRISON. I feel sorry for this young person, but his needs shouldn’t be placed above the safety and emotional well-being of others. If anything, he has been coddled too long. They moved him and did what they could to help him, but he is still complains. He can’t be placed with others because he is too violent.

    This is the State of Connecticut’s Frankenstein monster. There, I’ve said it because someone needed to speak the truth. It’s their doing and their’s alone. Deep down in the hearts of correctional workers, case workers, and staff they know it too. I’m not talking about the emotionally and violent young man. I wouldn’t call this young person a monster no matter how violent he is. Rather, I’m talking about “gender identity” laws that caused this young male to be placed with females in the first place. Truth be told, they don’t know what to do with him. Nothing that they do seems to work. What do they do with a very angry and emotionally disturbed young man who “identifies as a girl”? How many female staff members and girls have to be attacked? Do girls who have to be emotionally traumatized by this young man?

    Unfortunately, it looks as if nothing that the beligered juvinile justice system does is ever going to please this young man.

    (1.) Based on his violent past and disruptive behavior, he has some serious emotional problems besides the “gender identity”. Why not focus on these other psychological issues first? No, they have to drag up “gender identity” and berate any and everyone that accidentally refers to this male adolescent as “he”. Isn’t it interesting that transgender activists only focus on the “gender identity” as if this is the only thing that impacts the life of this disturbed child?

    (2.) If he is emotionally unstable based on a past history of violence and an inability to relate to others in a non-violent manner, why must we automatically assume that his belief that he is a “girl” is genuinely felt? Or, at least clearly understood. We must accept at face value a teenage boy’s belief that he is a “girl” even though we question his overal mental and emotional state of mind. It’s as if they are saying, “Yes, we know he is emotionally unstable and potentially violent, but his belief that he is a girl must be honored above all other matters.” So, he is emotionally unstable in every other way except the “gender identity”. Maybe he needs other counseling that does NOT involve people telling him that he is really a “girl”, or propping him up as some kind of transgender political cause.

    In a way, this reminds me of Douglas, “Donna” Perry who is charged with murdering three women. He is a seriously disturbed person with a long criminal history (federal weapons charges, assault), but we have to take his belief that he is a “woman” at face value. How can a serial killer be sane? I argue that if we have to question their core mental stability, how can we be assured that their belief that they are “women” is based on rational thought processes? Yep, they can be bat crap crazy and a serial killer, but by God, the belief that they are “women” is real.

    (3.) Has it ever occurred to anyone that forcing kids, or constantly telling them to pick a “gender identity” too young could be harming them? Or, has it ever occurred to anyone that using fragile, disturbed kids as political footballs or trans celebrities could be emotionally harming them?
