How do you spell rape? [Gov. Newsom signs bill to house inmates based on gender identity]

Gender identity?  California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed a bill Saturday allowing transgender inmates to be placed in prisons based on their gender identity.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) will now house inmates based on their gender identity rather than their sex assigned at birth — but only if the state does not have “management or security concerns” with individual inmates.

The law Newsom signed Saturday requires officers to ask inmates privately during the intake process if they identify as transgender, nonbinary or intersex, then inmates can request to be placed in a facility that houses either men or women.

The CDCR cannot deny requests solely because of inmates’ anatomy or sexual orientation. When a request is denied, the state must provide a written statement to the inmate explaining the decision and give them an opportunity to object.
