Well, just knowing what kind of genitalia a person has does not
indicate where that person can be safely incarcerated.  If, for
example, a person is a pre-op male-to-female, she would not
be safe incarcerated with other people with male genitalia, nor
would the authorities wish to incarcerate her with people with
female genitalia.


It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up
their passion, than to restrain them and direct
them toward the patient labors of peace.
