redsquid: This man is a terrorist and a misogynist. I have no time to waste speculating on his inner turmoil. He's trying to game the system and until we have a better metric than "I'm a woman because I say so" we need to be really careful about putting the claims of violent men over the safety of incarcerated women.


How about we let a board-certified psychiatrist review the case, ideally one that specializes in transgenderism and gender dysphoria? That sounds like a pretty good metric to me.

Why feed HIM for almost 6 more decades into the future, when HE could just be killed? I'm sure somebody will say "But it's cheaper to keep him alive than to kill him" but seriously, how can you say that? We're talking about decades here. If you don't want to waste bullets, then just use a hammer to the head and BAM, dead terrorist that can be turned into fertilizer right away.

Can't really suggest feeding him a hundred bacon cheeseburgers since he's not Taliban or ISIS so it's pointless. Since he seems fat, maybe feed him bitter vegetables as his last meal before giving him the hammer to the head.

That man does not deserve a place on earth as a living creature due to how dangerous he is to others.

She also said the victims who testified during Monday's hearing have been through a "traumatic ordeal" and she wished them "God's richest blessings in Christ Jesus."

Even in apology, she's an asshole who isn't respecting their religion.

Flab: redsquid: Flab: redsquid: This is not a woman and he has no business in a women's prison. This is a scam to avoid getting his ass kicked by Muslims in a men's prison.

Replace the word prison with the word bathroom and reread your statement.

Why? Those are two different things. Are you defending this transparent bullshiat!?

I'm just saying you need to take a step back before:
1. Accusing them of making this up.
2. Wishing they were beat up by other inmates.

People were saying the same thing of Chelsea Manning.  It wasn't ok then, and it isn't ok, now.

This being said, did Hari's attorney try to use gender dysphoria as a defence?  Absolutely.  And they rightfully got called on it.

But personally, I'll wait until I get more info before making a judgment on this.


Has he ever mentioned gender dysphoria before just this moment?

If no, then no need for caution.

That is precisely why I'm waiting for more info.

I never said anything about putting Hari's safety above that of other inmates.

His "gender identity" is nothing but a ploy to go to a women's prison where he imagines he will be safer. Playing along with this puts women at risk.

I suspect that he or his lawyer was trying for some ridiculous ploy that by declaring transgender status, liberals would be "conflicted" in how to go about punishing him, because in their mind, liberals "like" Muslims and the LGBT community and they'd have a Sophie's choice scenario.

Huh? The choice is whether she dies in a women's prison or a men's prison. Calling it a "Sophie's choice" is more than a bit of a stretch.


See my last paragraph - the Sophie's choice scenario is how right wingers perceive that liberals act.

According to right wing mentality, liberals believe that Islamophobia is the ultimate sin, but LGBT can do no wrong, hence why he's declaring himself as transgender, and "hoping" that some gullible liberal feels sorry for him to be lenient.

I like how the court system on their planet is full of liberals.

That's an odd lease term on new housing. One would think it would be an even 50 years.

Anyone can identify as whatever they want, isn't that what you people said?

She's a woman, because she says so :-)

Wow this thread got uncomfortable and transphobic really fast

Pro tip: They don't put you in a "women's prison" because you "say you're a woman". Jesus Christ

So I know this thread was totally going to stay on topic about their crimes And the fact that they were convicted (LOL what I saying even the liberals on this site are transphobic as fark as a rule) But some of you have a very strange idea about how prison works for people like me and other transgender individuals.

So let me lay out in basic terms how this usually works. And keep in mind this is only gotten better in the last year, as the Trump justice department was happy to let use visibly trans in gen pop so we could get beaten and raped regularly.

If you say you're transgender but you are not "visibly transgender ", they still let you stay in a regular prison for your assigned at birth gender.

If you are on hormones, and or are " visibly trans" You might get lucky and be put in protective isolation, which basically means that you're kept alone and separated. If you're lucky your prison has other transgender inmates that they put you with. Because in this case you are definitely going to be beaten, raped, and possibly murdered in general population for existing.

If you are "visibly transgender "enough and you have had sex reassignment surgery, they might allow you to petition for a court order to move you to a women's prison.

That's it. That's your experience in prison. Even during the Obama administration when there was massive reform in the way transgender prisoners were handled, the best you could hope for was to be potentially isolated with other transgender people.

Remember when Republicans claimed transgender was bad because people would just say they were transgender to get stuff?
Pepperidge Farms remembers.


// not a slight towards actual transgendered folks
