"prison conditions don’t usually register in the minds of people who suddenly give a hoot about incarcerated people only when the topic can be used to score a “win” in anti-trans discourse."

Nail on head. Not just for this issue but many, many others.

A lot of people have forgot to hate the sin and not the sinner.
