I can see why your pissed Helen, some of them in the comments column are just the same as the Tangerine Mandarin you have ruling your country, bloody barbarians! We are the last free hit target of bigots..... :cry:

Ugh...

I followed the links. This whole thing is a mess, but basically, it all adds up to speculation and twisted facts. Ultimately, there are two sources for this story:

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/texas-p ... urt-battle
https://www.buzzfeed.com/dominicholden/ ... .msMW07QLQ

I don't trust Buzzfeed at all; still, though, it's only about an evaluation, not an announcement that it's being overturned or something. As for Dallas News, it's all speculation from the lawyer of the complainant regarding what the Bureau of Prisons might do. There are no confirmations of this speculation. The way the blogger originally linked to writes about it, you'd think this was based on what Trump said, or even what someone in Trump's cabinet said. That's not the case. A prison inmate, who is a natal woman, is fighting in court to stop another prison inmate, who is a trans woman, from being allowed to share the same facility with her. Concretely, that's all that's happened.

TL;DR: bloggers copying each other and morphing the story until it becomes unrecognizable. "Random lawyer thinks Trump will side with his lawsuit by doing X" becomes "Trump is doing X". Always click back on those links and find out where the claims actually come from.

you think i could solicit Trump to personally just execute me straight-up, kinda like a suicide-by-cop :?:

it shouldn't cost me more than a small loan of a million dollars i wouldn't think, given that he'd certainly have a vested interest in making an example out of such an unrepentant tranny scourge of society

he could double his money on the dark web if he cum-dumster-necro'd my *beautiful* porcelain corpse while he was at it

Not as barbaric as the inmates themselves.
