Justin Lee Naber

A Florida inmate who demanded to be referred to by a female name committed suicide in his jail cell.

Justin Lee Naber died on Aug. 6 inside Florida City’s Dade Correctional Institution, the NY Daily News reports.

Naber filed a handwritten lawsuit claiming that being forced to use his male birth name was "cruel and unusual punishment".

His family said Naber was supposed to be on suicide watch when he hanged himself in his cell.

He was in protective custody, and yet he hanged himself,” his aunt, Lee Kahn, told the Miami Herald. “It struck me as odd,” she added.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) assisted Naber with his lawsuit after it was filed.

The ACLU argued that the name change -- though not legal -- was a "form of therapy" for Naber who suffered from gender dysphoria.

Gender dysphoria is listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) as a disorder that causes sufferers to reject their birth sex for an idealized image of the opposite sex.

Female sufferers often adopt an ultra masculine exterior image, while male sufferers project an ultra feminine image that is typically unrealistic of the average biological woman.

Naber was serving a life sentence for stabbing a man to death in 2013.

The lawsuit was dropped last week in light of Naber's death.

    In other white ho news, Amber heard is getting 7million from Johnny Depp. "Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm. Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity." From People.com

  • Karma WhO

    wont get into heaven commiting suicide.. its sad when you have to live life fighting demons..especially to know there will be no peace in the after life..

    This ranks as one of the dumbest comments ever. ?

  • God is working on me!

  • hottlanta

    No more than white people in the past killed themselves to be called child molesters would that be lawsuit worth?

  • hottlanta

    I see why ole girl step down from the ACLU months ago and she was right how the ACLU is all over this transgender issue but if my black butt needed help they will look at me like I am crazy.

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    this was no foul play?

  • Lisa daniels

    She whupped her own ass.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I don't believe she's donating those millions to charity seeing that was the reason for marrying him in the first place. Monetary gain.

  • Lisa daniels

    Exactly, she knows she can't act. Her best role was Johnny's abused wife and even that acting was bad.

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    How about this man was being raped, so he needed to be put in PC. That's why he originally wanted the name change. His abusers forced him into it. Once it didn't happen, being raped on top of the refusal to give the other images what they wanted (at his expense) was too much to handle.

  • Liah

    Ok.....

  • Liah

    Right!

  • JustB

    Only if he knew he would not have passed for a women...

    You should send one of your scripts to Mona Scott-Young. I hear she's looking for good script writers.

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    I agree but she wants black ignorant drama queens, not real life scenarios. Ijs

  • Purpleaxxe

    The rhetoric in this thread is cold and heartless. I worked as mental health professional/director at a correctional facility for two years until I returned to education recently. Although the man suffered from gender dysphoria, he more than likely had other diagnoses such as major depressive disorder and/or suicidal ideations due to people's lack of understanding/sympathy regarding his condition. Also, protective custody (PC) is not the same as suicide/psychiatric observation. There are even levels to suicide precautions including constant watch by an offer or incremental checks by an offer. Something is a little off about this story.

  • Particularly petty

    Im honestly tired of trans issues being shoved down my throat. I mean live your truth but come on. All this "Im a woman,' talk from trans folk is killing.

    Im so over people thinking a pronoun or name change or putting on a dress is going to make you a woman

    If you're a woman than what am I? Superwoman?

    A face lift and some new tits can never make these half the woman I am.

    You have no idea what it feels like to be a woman and no title or bathroom privilege will change that. It only shows how entitled people have become.
