womens prisons are no easier then mens. in most cases, womens prisons are worse.
he may be transgendered and most prisons separate these individuals from the general population along with the handicapped, ill, weak, and the elderly to prevent riots, fights, injuries, etc. the state should not pay for his sexual transition though. EVER! this is considered cosmetic. i have heard of prisons giving out hormone therapy though. but not the actual surgery. the state should not be concerned with cosmetic surgery. only surgeries that are necessary for the health and life of the inmate should be paid for as part of their healthcare system. but even healthcare in a prison system is paid for by the working inmates. if he wants to pay for it himself that is fine. but its not a necessary procedure. i know transgendered individuals who are pre-op and lead normal productive lives without having to be 100% one gender. they dress whatever gender they deem themselves to be. and they dream of going and getting the surgeries but these cost thousands of dollars. no average working individual can afford such luxuries. so why should an inmate be allowed such a luxury?
