This policy has been adopted in numerous countries under the guise of tolerance. The California Senate also recently voted in favour of such accommodations. This is happening in Canada, where I live, even if most Canadians have no idea about it. The people who live in prison, including female prisoners, have very little constituency among politicians or journalists. The media reports on this issue rarely.

She also organized extra-curricular activities where, in one case, she had full intercourse with one boy. The boy, now in his 50s, told the court how the experience negatively affected him during his entire adult life.

The passage of time is never enough to erase the consequences of one's actions, and Casaubon needed to serve time, the judge said.

This is the report we published in October Since that time the Ministry of Justice MoJ have confirmed by Freedom of Information requests that 60 of the transgender prisoners known to be in prison in England and Wales are convicted sex offenders. Some claim that the figure of trans prisoners is too low, because the MoJ does not count prisoners on short sentences, people with a Gender Recognition certificate or people who do not declare they are trans. This has no meaningful impact on the overall conclusions. This is a problem that cannot be ignored.
