I can still feel the horror of visiting one of our men's prisons in the early eighties and seeing an obviously trans something person...I am thinking she would likely have been on hormones at least...being processed by a bunch of standard issue prison officers with the sensitivity of bull elephants in musth. They had the sense to stop taunting her when they saw me. I complained on her behalf, but I know it would have made no difference.
