Female prisoners are made to shower with transgender women offenders who are still “anatomically male” in at least one Scottish prison, an MSP has said.
Kenneth Gibson, the SNP politician for Cunninghame North, made the revelation to Scottish Parliament today after calling for a ban on transgender offenders who are physically male being admitted to female prisons.
Not the showering together, that’s only fun when it’s voluntary. But the can of worms being opened here. Checking grollies to decide between male and female seems sensible, logical, and in terms of prisons and enclosed environments, just plain right.
Then we’ve the currently fashionable insistence that grollies don’t matter and aren’t what defines.
Who to believe, eh?
