Prisoner Sues State To Get Sex Change!
I’ve heard of some crazy prison stories, but none to the nature where an inmate sues the state for a right to a sex change. What’s even more amazing is the prisoner will try to perform the surgery with a disposable razor!
Ophelia De’lonta born Michael Stokes is trying to ‘get rid of that thing between her legs’ as she describes it. With the help of three disposable razors in her commissary, she hopes to do what the Virginia Department of Corrections won’t, GET RID OF HER ANATOMY!
Ophelia is housed in the men’s facility serving 70 years for robbery, drugs, weapons and other charges. She states that the surgery is necessary to treat her gender identity disorder, a mental illness in which people believe they were born the wrong gender.
Months after her October castration attempt, De’lonta filed a federal lawsuit Friday claiming the state has failed its duty to provide adequate medical care because it won’t give her the operation. So she’s decided to take matter into her own hands…..
If she wins, De’lonta would be the nation’s first inmate to receive a state-funded sex change operation. Similar lawsuits have failed in a handful of other states, and lawmakers in some states are trying to ban the use of taxpayer money for the operations.
If she loses, she says she will continue to try self-surgery, acknowledging another attempt could kill her. Here’s a fun fact:
At least 12 other inmates have castrated themselves over the past 14 years!
Talk about ridding yourself of demons!
