Hello - right before you get stuck into this I think you aught to be aware that the top of this discussion spends some time on sexual violence, in particular violence against trans women being held in male correctional facilities.

Please read http://noprideinprisons.org.nz

A note from Dave: in this I misspoke and said "it could have been anyone" when discussing the sexual violence experienced by a trans women incarcerated in a male prison.  What I meant to convey by that is that the double-bunking of prisoners is a catalyst and multiplier of violence and risk for all incarcerated people.  However this particular violence experienced by this trans women could not have happened to anybody - it is a violence faced exclusively by incarcerated trans women as a result of a confluence of shitty policies and inaction.  Hopefully the wider point is made in the rest of the discussion around it but that line I used has been bugging me since I said it - it is incorrect.

In more a more light-hearted, light-headed vein: Dan went to the gym and you'll never guess what happened next.
