Man sent to women’s prison in Canada because he identifies as female

A British man identifying as a woman who was sent to a men's prison outside Toronto for an immigration infraction has been transferred to a neighboring jail for women, reports LifeSiteNews.

British citizen Avery Edison, whose passport identifies him as a woman, was detained Monday at Pearson International Airport when he tried to enter Canada illegally.

Canadian Border Services officers found that on an earlier stay in Canada Edison had violated the time limit of his student visa, which reportedly had him listed as a male.

While awaiting transfer from detention at Pearson Airport, Edison used Twitter to give his girlfriend Romy Sugden a running commentary on his situation. He tweeted that despite his passport listing him as a female, the security officials sent him to Maplehurst Correctional Complex, a men’s facility in Milton, to await a hearing.

"Will be moved, soon, to Maplehurst correctional facility and assessed by a nurse before being placed in male or female cell. Literally going to jail. Actual jail. Because they don’t know what to do about my junk," Edison tweeted.

Sugden told Edison had tweeted that officials had told him, regardless of him being dressed as a woman, "male genitals equals male prison and it doesn’t matter."
