Boyd Kodak, 60, who was born Jan Joseph Waterman, says he was strip-searched and forced to put on a woman’s undergarments and prisoner’s gown, and paraded in public by Toronto police and jail guards. His complaint against the Toronto Police Service and the Vanier Centre for Women, a Milton jail, has reached the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal. Kodak files his lawsuit under Toby’s Law, which is the reason why Christopher Hambrook was allowed access to women’s shelters, where he sexually assaulted two women. Toby’s Law says that it is discrimination to, for example, house female people with other females in a prison if the female does not identify as a female.

  1. “Boyd Kodak, 60, who was born Jan Joseph Waterman, says he was strip-searched and forced to put on a woman’s undergarments and prisoner’s gown”

    There is no excuse for making derogatory comments, etc. Law enforcement should treat everyone with respect. Having said this, what is so offensive about a biological female having to wear women’s undergarments? Was this done on purpose? I doubt it. This was a women’s jail, so it’s logical to assume that the only underwear they had was women’s underwear.

    If they are so hung up over a biological female wearing women’s underwear, then get a few pairs of men’s boxers and give them to any female who feels uncomfortable wearing lady’s underwear. Or, they could make all prison clothing unisex. At least the tops, pants, and gowns. Will this make people happy, or do trans* activist just want to bitch something.

    Aren’t inmates strip searched before entering a facility? What are law enforcement supposed to do?

    This individual is a biological female who apparently has never undergone “bottom surgery”. Many FTMs don’t undergo bottom surgery because of the expense, and it doesn’t create a “penis” that is comparable to what a biological male has. Placing this individual in a men’s facility could endanger her safety or life. Seriously, she could be seriously injured in a men’s jail, or raped. Even with testosterone, many FTMs are smaller than biological males, and many still have their vaginas.

    “Kodak files his lawsuit under Toby’s Law, which is the reason why Christopher Hambrook was allowed access to women’s shelters, where he sexually assaulted two women. ”

    Imagine the terror that Hambrook’s victims experienced. Many homeless women are victims of domestic abuse. His victims should have sued the province.

    People should be placed in jails, prisons, and homeless shelters based on biological sex not “gender identity”.

  2. “His complaint against the Toronto Police Service and the Vanier Centre for Women, a Milton jail, has reached the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal.”

    Do people really believe that making a biological female wear women’s underwear is far worse than Christopher, “Jessica”, Hambrook sexually assaulting homeless women?

    Did the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal ever address the Hambrook tragedy in which homeless women were stalked and assaulted by a sexual predator? How did a sexual predator gain access to two different women’s shelters. He called himself “Jessica” and claimed he was transgender.
