Karen White

The HM Prison Service in the United Kingdom has ended the controversial policy of housing male-to-female (MtF) transgenders in all-female prisons.

The new policy calls for MtF prisoners to be housed in separate wings over concerns for the safety of genetic female prisoners.

The policy change was enacted shortly after public uproar over the case of Karen White, a MtF prisoner and registered sex offender, who sexually assaulted female inmates after he was transferred to an all-female prison.

White was sentenced to life in prison for rape. The 52-year-old legal male, who was born Stephen Wood, was initially moved to an all-female prison after he claimed to identify as a woman.

Prosecutors say White used a "transgender persona" to gain access to vulnerable females.
According to The Times newspaper, justice minister Ed Argar confirmed that the government "revised" a previous guideline that called for MtF prisoners to "experience the [prison] system in the gender in which they identify."

In a statement announcing the new policy change, Argar said, "We take the Karen White case very seriously."

Argar confirmed that the "difficult decision" had already been made to transfer a "small number" of "high-risk" MtF transgenders back to male prisons.
Argar stressed that the government is trying to "strike the right balance" between women's safety and transgender rights.

"New guidelines will be published shortly to ensure that [the policy] continues to strike the right balance between ensuring that all female prisoners are kept safe [and] that transgender prisoners have their rights respected," Argar said.

Options under consideration include transgender-only prison wings to house MtF prisoners.
Public debate in the UK has grown as feminists and lesbians sound the alarm on the issue of women's safety in female-only spaces.

Feminists in particular are calling for greater protection for genetic females as the government considers a new law that will allow people to self-identify without the need for medical intervention, such as hormones or sex reassignment surgery.

The new law is being fiercely opposed by feminists and lesbians who fear that giving males the option to self-identify as women without medical intervention will expose genetic women and girls to increased danger from sexual predators in female-only spaces.

Nicola Williams, of Fair Play for Women, told The Times that the revision to housing transgender prisoners was "an admission that allowing males to self-identify as women and letting them into women's spaces is dangerous"

The prison service admits it was a mistake to house White with female prisoners.

A spokesman said, "We apologize sincerely for the mistakes which were made in this case. We work to manage all prisoners, including those who are transgender, sensitively and in line with the law. [But] we are clear that the safety of all prisoners must be our absolute priority."


  • Yardgirl

    A convicted male rapist claiming to be “female” housed with real females?? WTF?? Stevie Wonder could see what would happen!!! ?? The fckery of it all!!?

  • Wyteprivilege

    Why do you emphasize that feminists and lesbians fiercly oppose this law? After learning that many women were raped in prison over this, I would think that anyone with common sense would oppose it.

  • Kayke

    This shouldn’t only apply to prison. They shouldn’t be in our restrooms either. Just like this Rapist.... the pedos and men who intend to cause females harm, who can just say “I’m not Harry, I feel like Sally today” are being assisted in carrying out their evils in female spaces by the government.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    This wasn't well thought out at all. The ones who have not completed their surgery can live on a separate wing, on the same grounds with their birth sèx. When they've completed the sèx change process, they can be moved from that wing, over to the population thats related to their new sèx. Women changing to men may want to really think about committing crimes though. Just because she is now a he, does not exclude them from getting ràped in prison by males. If it's happening to men who are born male, it can happen to them too. And they don't have the strength of most men, even if now, look like one.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    The fact that he is a convicted male rap?st, should have given the judge pause.

  • Yardgirl

    Exactly!!

  • Ebony Starr

    It's seem that everyone's rights are protected except Biological women who identify as women.

  • R in NYC

    In NYC they house these transgenders and also gay males who are afraid to be housed with men in women's shelters. I never thought that was a good idea. I always felt they should have their own facility. Why did it have to take women being assaulted and or raped for them to see the idiocy of that policy?

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    “Transgenders” have a mental defect. Plain and simple.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Black, bio women especially

  • Harley

    That was my thought exactly!!!

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Biological black women.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I just write the same thing before reading your comment. Very true!

  • violet_skyz

    Very not okay. I thought going to prison means you get stripped of all your rights. Now they care about the MtF's experience, like you broke the law to end up in jail, why are they being accommodated??????

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Am I a Golden Retriever just because I say I am?

    Folks, this just isn't that hard. We must use Wisdom, compassion and practicality.

  • Kimocha

    These confused transgenders have caused confusion in the world and now EVERYONE is confused!... Smdh

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I hope there is similar focus being placed on prisoners being raped by staff.

  • Jack Blakk

    "Genetic female prisoners!" That's the key part in this post.

  • Ebony Starr

    Exactly!!!

  • Ebony Starr

    Exactly!!!

  • Chicagowise

    In Chicago, the gay males, even the ones pretended to be women, are housed in a separate area of men's jail. Back in the day, they used to have a policy about wigs, too. If it isn't attached to your scalp, it's coming off! So, the trannies would fashion shirts and rags into substitutes for hair. They would also put colored chalk in vaseline and create make up.

  • Renee26

    They should be housed separately in either a male or female prison anyway...it was stupid to put them in general population

  • Renee26

    Makes sense...they need protection too. Just cause they're gay doesn't mean it should be open season on them in general population

  • Rayne

    It’s jail!! You should be housed accordingly. There shouldn’t be any special treatment for anybody period. If you’re born make you should be with the men etc.

  • Renee26

    Lies

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    In DeKalb County jail they used to put all the gays and men with HIV in the same pods

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    All dykes and carpet munchers need their own pod!!

  • Goodii2Shoes

    i was just thinking about this story up top the other day when the other guy posted a video about a random woman's hygiene product use in a public restroom & wondering why are people acting like it's rocket science to understand that "allowing males to self-identify as women and letting them into women's spaces is dangerous"???

    This isn't rocket science. You're giving pedophiles/predators easy access by "playing along" with their mental disorders. Trans bathrooms/prison wings, etc. would be a better solution. Unisex restrooms aren't really the answer when it comes to mixed-age use & location..

  • Phillybruh

    They were a rapist who assaulted women why would they put them in the playpen.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    He should’ve been housed separately in the first place. A bunch of idiots.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    criminal justice reform is really not just about sentencing but improving the conditions inside the prison. the english society's use of jailing for punishment was established over here & expanded after slavery was generally abolished but the massively inhumane conditions of the prisons & jails show that prison reform is a top priority for people not interested in creating breeding grounds for barbarism & predators.. being incarcerated should focus on rehabilitating people to improve our society-----not creating hells for suffering.

    s/o to all those on lockdown running the prisons!xoxo run it.make it better. show up

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Off topic ERICA Dixon is pregnant with twin girls. I wonder who’s the father ? will this earn her a spot back on love and hip hop?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Let's make it interesting...I'll say Jeff Bezos!

  • Goodii2Shoes

    no ma'am. they are not stripped of all their rights&we need to make that clear. an injustice ANYWHERE is an injustice Everywhere.

    you don't want predators becoming prison employees thinking they can abuse the people there.

    He's convicted of raping women by using a transgender persona. His punishment is to serve his time in a women's prison where he continues his raping spree. His victims are about to be some rich inmates.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Look better in wig

  • J2PC

    I'd say: Feminism allowed for the rise of "faking femalism" which is a way for imprisoned men to exploit to idea to not only be with women, but to avoid being raped & violated by other men. In turn, women are violated raped, impregnated or taken advantage of by something nothing worth carrying the seed of.

    Always made sense to simply create a connecting unit to house the imprisoned transgender folks.

  • J2PC

    Time for the US to create such a prison policy similar to the UK.

  • Harley

    HIS!!

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Like I said b4 and I will say it again, I don't care how much U dress it up or how U feel inside, if U were born a man, u are a man! There is no need to put a man who wears a wig and who prance around like a woman inside an all women jail unit. Now if he no longer had his male parts then I could see him being housed separately from the men facility but until then he needs to be in regular male population to avoid sh***** like this from happening. Like they say just bcuz U take a Lion out the wild and put him in a cage, he is still a wild animal so same goes for a man who thinks or acts like a woman, he is still a MAN!

  • Sassie

    If you are a man, you go to a male prison. I don't care HOW much lipstick u wear. Come on, this is not rocket science.

  • TheOwley

    They need a prison for men, women and MTF people. Rest assure the non-surgical MTF would be having sex with the women and getting them pregnant. But the USA insist this thing up here is OK to enter a woman's bathroom or a shower room for girls if he identified as a 12 year old.
