Will the wonders of stereotyping never end... A Virginia prison has been segregating butch looking women for appearing gay.
For more than a year, Virginia's largest women's prison rounded up inmates who had loose-fitting clothes, short hair or otherwise masculine looks, sending them to a unit officers derisively dubbed the "butch wing," prisoners and guards say.
Dozens were moved in an attempt to split up relationships and curb illegal sexual activity at the 1,200-inmate Fluvanna Correctional Center for Women, though some straight women were sent to the wing strictly because of their appearance, the inmates and corrections officers said.
Because, you know, moving all the lesbians to one area of the prison will stop them from having sex with other women. FAIL
