California now allows any incarcerated man who claims to identify as other than male to serve his time in a women’s prison. What male would not jump at this chance?

As a result, incarcerated women are being raped and all are in terror that they will be next. California is downplaying this problem.

Can we all agree that exposing women to rape as part of their punishment constitutes unconstitutional “cruel and unusual punishment?” All women in this situation should sue for their immediate and permanent freedom and for damages.

If having men in womens’ cells constitutes cruel and unusual punishment, does it not follow that women sharing locker rooms with men does the same?

This type of insanity is part of the so-called Equality Act. If the Equality Act imposes an unconstitutional requirement, does that not make the Equality Act unconstitutional as well?
