After the state of California started to let their inmates choose their correctional facility based on self-declared gender identity, the Maryland law is also considering this legislation to be applied to their prison inmates.
Not the House in Washington state is working on a proposal on the same fight: men, sometimes violent, being housed with women.
According to the Just the News report after the program took effect on the West coast the East is joining in:
Just like California State, Maryland would let their inmates choose where they would prefer to be imprisoned according to their gender preferences. Joe Biden’s purported draft executive order would order the same for federal facilities.
“One chamber of the Washington State Legislature recently approved the nuclear option to deal with ongoing scrutiny of its transgender transfers: hiding basic information about male inmates, including their reported assaults on women, from the public,” the report said.

The Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) is active in all three state fights, most recently testifying against the Maryland legislation (HB 453, SB 550) at two committee hearings this month.
In California, the plan already is in place and has documented that men in women’s prisons already have been attacking women.
“Woman II Woman, an advocacy group run by ex-convicts, claimed female inmates had started ‘sleep schedules so that one woman is always on watch to make sure no one gets raped,'” the report said.
Washington state lawmakers are looking to move even beyond the standard, and are working on a plan to hide from the public any history of attacks or violence.
And it makes private “health information” concerning “transgender, intersex, nonbinary, or gender nonconforming status” and “genital anatomy.”
A former Tory Cabinet minister, Rory Stewart said men should not be given access to women’s facilities because male prisoners who “self-identify” as females have been raping women in prisons, according to WND reported in 2020.

“The important thing is: I think the rights of women to feel safe trump the rights of somebody who’s biologically male to enter that space,” he added.
Stewart said that when he was prisons minister in 2018-2019, there were “situations of male prisoners self-identifying as females then raping staff in prison.”
At the time, Frances Crook, chief executive of the Howard League for Penal Reform, said it would be “appalling” if “people who have been convicted of sex offenses or offenses against women who they say they’re female then get access to women’s prisons.”
