Wiki

Oregon: Michale Wright, who was convicted of attempted robbery, has supposedly been transitioned enough from male to “female” by hormone treatments that “she” is being moved from the men’s prison to the women’s prison. Oregon’s Department of Corrections granted Wright’s request for hormone treatment after he filed a lawsuit. It is unknown if the state also will pay for his requested orchiectomy to remove his testicles. Oregon’s Corrections Department has 55 transgender or intersex inmates in custody. -GEG

You may recall a story on The Gateway Pundit from October 25th, 2017, where a transgender prison inmate in Oregon sued the Department Of Corrections for $267,500 because they refused to perform “transitioning” surgeries on the inmate. Now that inmate, Michale Wright, sometimes spelled Michalle Wright, has supposedly been transitioned enough from male to “female” that “she” is being moved from the men’s prison to the women’s prison.

The Oregonian reports:

Michalle Wright, 27, who has identified as a woman since 16, had requested a transfer from the Oregon State Correctional Institution in Salem. She’s been moved to Coffee Creek Correctional Institution in Wilsonville, where agency officials said she will be housed in the general population.

Wright, who grew up in Gresham, is serving time for attempted robbery.

Mat dos Santos, legal director of the ACLU of Oregon who represented Wright, welcomed news that his client is now housed at the women’s prison.

Transgender inmates, he said, are especially vulnerable to abuse. “We are really relieved that action was taken to protect our client from a known and foreseeable threat to her well-being,” he said.

The state’s online inmate database originally listed Wright as a male. As of Tuesday, Wright was listed as a female housed at Coffee Creek.

Last year, the Corrections Department granted Wright’s request for hormone treatment. She has also requested an orchiectomy, a surgical procedure to remove the testicles, before she is released from state custody later this year. The agency declined to comment on the status of the request, citing medical confidentiality.

The Corrections Department has 55 transgender or intersex inmates in custody, said spokeswoman Betty Bernt. Intersex refers to people born with a combination of male and female biological characteristics, such as chromosomes or genitals.

Bernt said transgender and intersex inmates are housed at prisons across the state. Some are housed in prisons that “match their assigned sex at birth, while others are not,” she said.

Bernt confirmed Wright’s transfer and said inmate placement decisions are based on “individual inmate programming and housing needs, and the department’s need to manage institutions and the inmate population in a safe and secure manner.”

Maybe if they cut off his nose and insert a beak he can convert to a chicken. Sounds like they removed his brain already.
