    Bizarre – especially considering that women’s prisons (like men’s prisons) have a tendency to foster same sex relationships. In fact in women’s prisons there is a term for a ‘straight’ woman who has a lesbian relationship while in prison. Those are called LURDs (Lesbian Until Release Date)

    Utterly unacceptable. I hope anyone found to have even contributed to this debacle is punished severely. It’s not the Middle Ages anymore.

  3. Cruel, prejudiced and utterly ignorant.
