Half of Gender-Confused Men in Wisconsin Prisons Have Sexual Abuse History: Report

The state’s Department of Corrections wouldn’t say whether or not these men were housed in women’s prisons.

MADISON, WISONSIN — Over half of the gender-confused men in Wisconsin prisons have a history of sexual violence, according to a new report from The Daily Signal.

Wisconsin Department of Corrections (DOC) records obtained by The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project revealed that 81 of the 161 gender-confused men in women’s prisons had been convicted of at least one count of sexual assault or sexual abuse.

According to the outlet, the Wisconsin DOC wouldn’t say whether or not these men were housed in women’s prisons – despite being given “multiple days and numerous opportunities to respond.”

The report noted that possible crimes that fall under those type of convictions include: sexual exploitation of a child, sexual exploitation by a therapist, forced viewing of a sexual act, rape, sexual intercourse without consent, incest, sexual intercourse with a child, indecent behavior with a child and enticing a child.

“Men belong with men and men only in prison,” Oversight Project Director Mike Howell told The Daily Signal. “Putting sex offender men claiming to be women in cells with women is another reason the world laughs at America’s moral decline. Prison is for punishment, not degenerate sexual behavior.”
