A group of female inmates have filed a lawsuit naming the state of California as defendant over trans women being placed in their facilities.
The group has named itself the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), and is strongly opposed to recent California legislation which allows trans women to occupy places at women’s correctional facilities throughout the state. According to Bakersfield.com , “two of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, both incarcerated women, allege they were sexually assaulted by inmates who identify as transgender or gender nonbinary,” and that “the lawsuit said that one of the alleged assaults occurred after the law went into effect, while the other alleged assault does not specify when it occurred.”
In addition many of the plaintiffs named in the lawsuit state that they have previously been victims of domestic violence, and other cite their religious beliefs being violated by California’s new placement rules for prisons.
“However, the department is committed to providing a safe, humane, rehabilitative and secure environment for all people in its custody.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
