Default Deena Kaye Myers Case/ updated with other cases

According to the reliable press Virginia DOC has placed an intersexed woman who has undergone sexual reassignment surgery to male institution. The reason is apparently ''medically determined sex'' rather than some court records listing her as male. Her BC says female and she was reassinged at the age of 1.

For years against pre-op transsexuals they have been used so called ''genitalia argument'': Prisoners with penis should go to male institutions and prisoners with vagina to female ones.

And now the VA DOC does that and it is not only a mistake done by some ignorant/prejudiced police officers but rather a consider decision made by the VA DOC.

The artickle can be found from Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The case seems to be now making headlines. And she has no skilled attorney. This may end up very messy.

This case seems to be an extremely serious case about civil right violations and inmate abuse and should have never been posted under LGBT-issues. The whole case is relating to the woman who has born with a medical condition knows as Cloacal Exstrophy. This is not a GLBT-issue rather than a serious issue relating to the inmate abuse. I petition this to be taken of from the GLBT-area.

An article describing the situation: (I don't see that the rationale for sending Ms. Myers to male facility would have been respect for the gender identity):

So what we know is that Ms. Myers is currently trated by standards for shame for any civilized society. And there is one particular writing, that from editor Carol Capo, so full of hate one can just wonder where the hole Western society is going to.

Not my choice. The same writing done by editor Capo can be found for example from Chicago Tribune and Daily Press websites. I just linked it here to show that certain people really want to determine inmate's gender solely based on chromosomes.

I am sorry but you 'petition' to have this thread moved - you will have to tell me where you want it moved or it stays here. If the forum you choose is appropriate for the content I will move it. If not then it is fine here.

I think this would fit more to the Virginia state forum.

Of course her lawcase was not succesfull, she was forced to settle an is still in male prison. This kind of justice is sick and should have no part in the civilized society. It is just like some Islamic Sharia justice. And the cowardly federal governt didn't intervene. The say they are for human rights, the current govermet. Really?

Default Velo Picardo-case

''Normal'' female again was put in male jail because she was thought to be a post-vaginoplasty MTF. Later she was confirmed to be female by two nurses.
This happened in Miami-Dade County, FL.

Do you have any cites? Quick search by that name finds ONLY this thread on google. It would be extremely useful if you would try linking when you want to make assertions like you have in this thread...otherwise, you come across in the same light as the whacktivists who are clamoring for special rights.

The rule in Florida has been that in case someone has had full SRS and changed their legal sex they will be still housed in jails and prisons according to the original birthcertificate. They even passed law in mid 1980's to ensure that. And what comes to special rights it is not a special right to demand that because of obvious vulnerability transsexuals after SRS or in the middle of the process will have others options than male general population or male protective custody.

There are other similar cases like Joan Gonzalez and Virginia Soto for example.
