Spotify podcast host Joe Rogan panned women’s prisons for allowing transgender women to violate women inmates because they’re a “protected class.”
“There’s a lot of people that don’t want any criticism,” the host began on Wednesday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
“People have a lot of opinions, they just do. You can’t stop them, you can’t change their opinions, you just gotta be you, but some people aren’t good at it,” he remarked.
“As a group, if you achieve protected status, like a lot of people, they categorize trans people in a protected class because they’ve been maligned and because they’ve been discriminated against,” he detailed.
Rogan was discussing the case of an inmate named Brooke Lyn Sonia, a male-to-female child rapist that was convicted of sexually exploiting a young girl in 2005 and again in 2006.
Sonia, who used to go by Brett David, convinced a 13-year-old he was going to help her become a model, then pressured her to take off her clothes, photographed, and repeatedly raped her.
He was convicted in both Californian and New Hampshire for the crimes, and must serve a minimum of 22.5 years, according to the Daily Mail.
In 2016, Sonia began identifying as transgender, and was bounced to multiple male only jails when he complained that he wasn’t receiving sufficient “gender affirming care.”
In 2020, Sonia claimed that as a transgender woman, she was at “risk of male aggression,” and appealed to be transferred to a women’s only facility.
She now resides at the Washington Correctional Center for Women, and according to a relative of an inmate at what is affectionately referred to as “Camp Cupcake” because it’s a comfortable facility, many aggressive “men” have been transferred in.
Female inmates are reportedly “terrified” of Sonia, and use the “buddy system” to go to the bathroom, because Sonia “looks like a regular middle-aged man,” and does not “look trans at all.”
“An individual approached my relative and informed her that Sonia is identifying as a man,” the jail source said. “He was saying that he’s both… Identifies as a man sometimes, and a woman sometimes.”
“Now they’re in a superposition, you know, like some quantum physics s–t,” Rogan said.
“You can’t even criticize them, even if they’re murderers. Even if they’ve brutally raped and murdered their ex-girlfriend, you still have to call them a woman.”
“Even if they were a man at the time, still, it’s a woman. ‘It’s very rare for a woman to do this.’ Is it? Is it also rare for a woman to have a d–k?” Rogan snarled. “What the f–k are we doing?”
Recently, a transgender inmate at Rikers Prison in New York, pleaded guilty to raping a female inmate in April, when they were housed in the same facility.
The 33-year-old female inmate had just finished showering on Feb. 8, 2021, when Ramel Blount, 33, held her down by the back of the neck and raped her with his intact male genitalia.
A rape kit was performed and confirmed that the DNA belonged to Blount, who received an additional seven-year prison sentence in April.
Another transgender inmate, who identifies as female, was allowed to transfer into a women’s prison, based on New Jersey’s gender self-ID policy, which allows inmates to be housed according to their gender preference.
While in the women’s facility, Demi Minor, who is serving a 30-year sentence for stabbing his foster father to death 27 times, impregnated two women behind bars.
Rogan went the lithium battery industry on Friday, when he interviewed Siddharth Kara, the author of “Cobalt Red: How The Blood of The Congo Powers Our Lives.”
Kara told Rogan that “clean cobalt,” which powers smart phones, laptops, and electric vehicles, is a myth. The author also detailed that every major industrial cobalt mine utilizes child labor and slavery.
“We can’t function on a day-to-day basis without cobalt, and three-fourths of the supply is coming out of the Congo,” he noted. “And it’s being mined in appalling, heart-wrenching, dangerous conditions.”
“I don’t think people are aware of how horrible it is,” Rogan remarked.
