So, it turns out, a really good predictor for something awful happening is the Left telling you that it never will, and that for even thinking it could, you must be a mean, nasty fill in the blank with your favorite Leftist term of endearment.  Check your brain in at the door, in other words: you won’t be needing it going forward – and really, isn’t it a hassle doing all that thinking for yourself, anyway?  Folks, we have arrived at a time in history when the sanity which told us that it’s wise to have separate men’s and women’s prisons has been knocked over, stomped on, and lit on fire.  Presented for your inspection, the following headline: Trans Inmate Rapes Mentally Disabled Female Prisoner at Washington Prison.

Every once in a while, you really can see a headline that sums up the whole story.  Washington State has, of late, been allowing male prisoners who claim to be transgender women to be moved to the Washington Corrections Center for Women, because what could possibly go wrong with such a solid move towards diversity and inclusivity?  Introducing Princess Zoee Marie Andromeda Love, the new name of the walking human garbage can formerly known as Hobby Bingham.  This dude – or dudette, depending on how many times you fell on your head as a kid – went to prison for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl.  So, you know, the kind of guy who should only take up about thirty cents of the American taxpayers’ money.  Oh, wait…I forgot that ammunition prices went up.  Maybe it’d take a dollar.

Anyway, this delightful fella was transferred to the Women’s Correctional Facility because he claims to be a woman.  And soon after, it was discovered that he was raping a woman with the mental development of a young child.  So, let me make sure I have this straight – pardon the pun.  A guy who went into the clink for going after young girls capitalized on that most basic of glitches in the system – stupidity – and is now going after mentally young girls.

Not that her state of mind matters much as to whether or not it was a good idea to start letting this sort of thing happen.  Folks, prisons are where we send the people who don’t live by society’s rules.  In a free society, my rights extend all the way out to the edge of your rights, and no further – prisons exist for those people who don’t get that.  If you’re going to put Princess Zoee Marie Andromeda Love – this Venus with a penis – in with the female inmates, what the hell do you think is going to happen?!  

But the complicity lives inside the mentality, folks.  Make no mistake, the people in Washington State who are responsible for this nonsense will absolutely do the Olympic-level mental gymnastics necessary to convince you and themselves that what they’re doing not only isn’t the dumbest move in the history of the criminal justice system, but in fact is good and right.  And when you meet someone who can dance the Watusi around the truth with that kind of skill, it’s time to just set the microphone down and walk away, because you’re not going to convince them of literally anything.  

Ask yourself this: why?  Really, just that.  Why?  What is to be gained by granting men who claim to be women access to women’s prisons?  What good is it doing?  Is the relative safety of the women incarcerated there worth less than the supposed dignity of the man set loose to stalk them?  What possible reason exists that explains such asinine thinking?

Well, if you guessed “subverting the dominant paradigm”, you’ve clearly been sober while listening to me at least once or twice, because I say it a lot.  The ideology of the Left is to break the old in favor of the new.  And it doesn’t matter if the old works really well, or if the new will work at all.  Progress must march either way.  

Listen, Princess Zoee needs a good dose of lead poisoning – I think most of us can probably agree with that.  But he’s only a tiny cog in a gigantic, frightening machine.  And if we’re not careful, that machine is going to drive right over the top of all of us.
