Italy Opens First Prison For Transsexuals
 
# 1 : Thursday 28-1-2010 @ 16:35
 
 
Guards will undertake special training in how to treat transgender prisoners when the prison block opens near Empoli, in Tuscany, in March.

Campaigners welcomed the initiative, the first of its kind, because they said transsexual prisoners face discrimination in Italy's mainstream prisons and are rejected by both male and female inmates. They often have to be segregated for their own safety.

I get that, but being in a Transexual priosn only means the rape/ abuse is from another Transexual. It's not exactly a solution is it?

There are separate prisons for men and woman, so if the law does not recognise transgender people where do you put them. You could put them in a prison for the sex they were born with, so you have a woman in a mens prison or a man in a woman's prison. Or you could put them into the prison they have changed to, in a way that is recognition of their gender reassignment under the law.

This is a humane thing to do for now.

italy's hardly the most enlightned country when it comes to rights of sexual minorities. if they felt this was necessary then it must have been really bad for transexuals. end of.
