Almost 200 biological males behind bars in Pennsylvania’s state prisons say they identify as women. A small number of them are seeking a transfer to a women’s prison.
But the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections says it doesn’t have information on how many of these biological males who identify as women were convicted of sex crimes.
In November, an inmate born as a male who says he identifies as a transgender woman sued the Dauphin County Prison in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
In the suit, the inmate claims he asked officials not to be housed with men, and that he had been groped by other inmates and assaulted by guards.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania announced a $300,000 settlement June 2 between the Allegheny County Jail and a self-identified transgender woman housed with male inmates over an alleged sexual assault in the jail.
This case isn’t associated with Pennsylvania state prisons, but Allegheny County is the second most populous county in Pennsylvania. The jail is located in downtown Pittsburgh.
In California, a women’s group sued the state in November, alleging that a biological male raped a female inmate after being tranferred to a women’s prison because he said he identifies as a transgender woman.
In New Jersey, two female inmates became pregnant after having consensual sex with a self-identified transgender woman at the state’s only women’s prison, corrections officials announced in April.

Only 10 of the 193 biological males who say they identify as women requested a transfer to a women’s facility, the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections said in response to a public records request from The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project. (The Daily Signal is Heritage’s multimedia news organization.)
Five of the 10 who requested a transfer had been convicted of sexual abuse or sex offenses, according to the data provided so far by the corrections department. None of those convicted of a sex offense was transferred, the agency said in its response to The Daily Signal’s public information request.
However, in response to the question of how many male inmates who self-identify as women have at least one conviction for either sexual abuse or sexual assault, the Department of Corrections said: “This information does not exist.”
Maria A. Bivens, press secretary for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, told The Daily Signal in an email:
The DOC has access to criminal history, medical, disciplinary, and other information of all incarcerated people in the department’s custody and care; however, the format for tracking transgender individuals does not include information relative to their criminal histories. As a result, no responsive records exist relative to the original RTKL [Right to Know Law] request.
Regarding the relatively small number of transfer requests, Bivens said Pennsylvania’s corrections department follows the requirements of the 2003 federal Prison Rape Elimination Act.
A provision of that law states:
In deciding whether to assign a transgender or intersex inmate to a facility for male or female inmates, and in making other housing and programming assignments, the agency shall consider on a case-by-case basis whether a placement would ensure the inmate’s health and safety, and whether the placement would present management or security problems.
Another provision of the federal law states: “A transgender or intersex inmate’s own views with respect to his or her own safety shall be given serious consideration.”
California goes beyond the federal law. In 2021, the state’s Legislature passed legislation–called the Transgender Respect, Agency and Dignity Act–designed to make state prisons more accommodating to inmates who say they identify as transgender.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
