sure, why not

There’s PLENTY of money to go around…

The Los Angeles Police Department will begin housing arrested transgender men and women in a women’s jail by the end of the month, making it what administrators believe is the first police department in the country to do so.

The announcement came Thursday night from Capt. Dave Lindsay, commander of the department’s jail division, speaking to a meeting in Hollywood of transgender people with police Chief Charlie Beck and members of the city’s Police Commission.

The department will open a women’s module at its Metropolitan Detention Center downtown. One of the sections within the module will be reserved for up to 24 transgender people, Lindsay said.

At the new module downtown, transgender people will have their own area and be able to receive male and female clothing and medical treatment, including hormones.

    How do you make a hormone? Don’t pay her.

    (ba-dump-bump. Thanks. I’m here all week.)

    But on a serious note – medical science has done some wonderful things in the last century. But Jeeeee-SUS!! When in hell did voluntary mutilation ever become acceptable to the medical profession?

    And how do the “doctors” who perform these acts of butchery still call themselves the heirs to Hippocrates? (Of course the same question can be asked of all the assembly-line abortionists across the land …)

    I think it would be easier with the toss of a coin when they’re arrested. It sure would save some money.

    It does keep them from getting beat up by the general jail population. On the other hand, they’ll need some extra bathrooms:

    Men
    Women
    Men formerly Women
    Women formerly Men
    Undecided

    Which brings up an important point: Why do we still have “separate but equal” bathrooms?

    Isn’t a transaxle part of a VW bug?

    Or maybe a small pianist who posts on The Olympian using women’s names?
