I finally got to model #WestwardboundLatex ❤️😱 the craftsmanship is truly admirable AND comfortable. So happy this finally happened, I’ve been a fan of them for years.
“It’s troubling to see a persistent belief that cases not going to trial represent falsely reported rapes or false accusations of people who were innocent. Such attitudes feed directly into rape culture and put a heavy burden on victims/survivors, who are again not responsible for determining whether their cases go to trial, though they can sue for civil damages if they believe they have a strong enough case to make it worth it (as in certain other types of crimes, it is possible for a matter to be pursued in both civil and criminal court, if it can be proved both a tort and a criminal harm).
When cases don’t go to court, it’s important to stress that there are many elements involved in determining how and whether a case is tried, and that these factors don’t necessarily have anything to do with the validity of the initial complaint and accusation. Without this emphasis, observers may come away with a false notion about the significance of the news of a case not going to trial. The thing of note here is not the decision not to press charges, but the circumstances behind it, and the cold calculations that had to go into that decision.”

“I just feel like no matter what, prisons are bad for everybody. They aren’t just bad for trans people—they’re bad for all people. It wouldn’t be fair for me to make it seem like it was so hard for me, just as a trans women, because I’ve been around a lot of people who don’t deserve to be in prison at all. Prison is hard for everybody. We’ve all got our personal issues and have to do what we need to do to survive in there and be strong.
It’s not the right approach for people to sensationalize this story and say: You were a trans woman in a men’s prison. Because at the end of the day, all prisons are bad for all people—trans, cys, gay, straight, Black, white, Asian, brown, purple, polka-dotted, striped, zebra, alien or whatever.
Yes, I had my issues. I dealt with extra discrimination and extra scrutiny. I had to deal with things that other people wouldn’t have had to deal with in prison because I was a trans woman in a men’s prison. Of course, it was upsetting, and it was hard.
But I was blessed to have the support of a team that was willing to support me in this fight against the system. Not everyone in there had that—not everyone had support or someone to help them or be there for them, to protect them or understand them or get them in touch with the right resources. I was blessed to have that.
So yes, I can say how hard it was for me, but what about the people in prison who are there wrongfully or for petty charges or because of the criminalization of everything? There are men and women who have been in there for days, years, even decades—what about them?”
