I truly will not ever understand what runs through the minds of the lawmakers who approve such nonsense. For example, California inmates now have the opportunity to have a sex change if they “identify” as transgender. Guess who pays for the surgery? None other than the hard working tax payers of America.

Not to mention, they are now mandated to receive “special flattering” undergarments, as well as given access to jewelry, brushes, and hair accessories. Once again, all on the tax payer’s dollar.
Daily Wire Reports:
A federal judge made all this possible on Friday via an order. The Associated Pressreports:
U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar issued the order in a federal lawsuit that earlier led California to become the first state to provide taxpayer-funded sex reassignment surgery to an inmate.
The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation also agreed as part of the suit by Shiloh Quine to give transgender inmates access to certain products. Quine, 57, had sex reassignment surgery in January and was transferred from a men’s facility to a women’s prison in Chowchilla. She is serving a life sentence for murder, kidnapping and robbery.
Prison officials are said to be “reviewing” Judge Tigar’s ruling.
Transgender inmates in the state were already awarded special goodies their non-trans counterparts were not, says the AP, but the Friday ruling “expanded that list to include pajamas, nightgowns, robes and scarves.”

Apparently some of these “goods” were already available to the male inmates before, like the special undergarments, if they believed themselves to be trans.
First of all, if you are in prison, you need to be in the prison that matches the genitals on your birth certificate. Second of all, if you are in prison, it is because you did something wrong. Therefore, a person in prison DOES NOT deserve to receive treats.
