      I realize that no matter which type of prison CeCe is placed in, she will be at risk and/or offend some of the other prisoners. Because she will not be safe in a men's prison, and because some women in a female prison might object to her (as a pre op trans woman), perhaps the safest place is in a cell apart from others but in a women's prison. Definitely not a men's prison as she will be most likely be raped and assaulted by the male prisoners, and she is a trans woman, not a man. There is no real way to guarantee safety for any prisoner, short of complete isolation.

      Because she is a girl and should not be placed in a mens prison!

      This is a blatant case of transphobia and racism, but first and foremost it is severe abuse and endangerment of this woman. Whatever your views on gender putting CeCe in a man's prison, or any goddamn prison, is unjustifiable. Solidarity with all transgender brothers and sisters. ACAB

      If CeCe would feel safer in a women's facility, she has the right to be there! FREE CECE!
