An Idaho inmate currently incarcerated for sexually assaulting a child has received taxpayer-funded "sex-reassignment" surgery after suing the state for it.

Yep, really.

Adree Edmo, a 32-year-old man who identifies as a woman, has been imprisoned since 2012 for "sexually assaulting a sleeping 15-year-old boy." He filed suit against the state of Idaho in 2017, claiming that the state was violating his Eighth Amendment right against cruel and unusual punishment by denying him free (taxpayer-funded) transgender surgery.

Really. It went all the way to the Supreme Court.

Is all of this Orwellian enough, or would you like another shot?

OK, here ya go: Edmo is now going to be transferred to a women's prison and he'll be getting out of jail next year.

This is all real. It really happened.

What a time to be alive.
