The current dwellers in the White House has created a cascade of issues by pushing their woke agenda on Americans. One aspect is the seemingly endless war on women Biden has wages by giving gender-confused men favor over women. Just take a look at whats happening in women’s sports where Biden forced orders to allow biologically male students to compete against young girls in women’s games.
A prisoner in Virginia is suing because she was denied elective and costly surgery to remove her breasts. Jason Yoakam was locked up in a women’s prison for murder but she identifies as male.
“An incarcerated transgender man filed a complaint Wednesday against the Virginia Department of Corrections, or VADOC, for denying him surgery and other treatment for gender dysphoria, according to court documents shared with NBC News.
The lawsuit, brought by Lambda Legal, a legal organization that focuses on LGBTQ rights, is among the first filed by an incarcerated transgender man for denial of treatment for gender dysphoria. A number of lawsuits have been filed — and some won — by trans women inmates in recent years.
The plaintiff, Jason Yoakam, was convicted of first-degree murder in 2004 and has since been incarcerated at the Fluvanna Correctional Center for Women in Troy, Virginia.”
“…Medical providers have refused to provide Yoakam with treatment, including mental health services from qualified providers and a bilateral double mastectomy, or surgical removal of the breasts, according to the complaint, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia. Yoakam’s doctors and a transgender health care specialist requested the treatment, the complaint states.
“The only thing I am asking is to be treated fairly and have access to the same standard of healthcare that other incarcerated people receive,” Yoakam said in a statement. “It has been traumatizing, isolating, and stigmatizing to be denied health care services to treat the gender dysphoria that VDOC’s own providers have diagnosed.
Lambda Legal argues that denying Yoakam surgery and other treatment for gender dysphoria violates the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment and the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment.”
The LBGTQ community and woke media have rallied behind Yoakam’s lawsuit but so far the prison has not caved. They’re not likely to, either because it’s a prison, not a retreat, and officials still have to answer to taxpayers—Who, by the way, would be forced to pay for Yoakam’s surgery.
