Look, you want me to call you Sue? I'll call you Sue. Even if you are a boy named Sue. Maybe you're like Johnny Cash and you want me to call you "Frank or George or Bill or Tom, anything but Sue."

I just heard about a court case involving a prison inmate named "Nikki" who apparently decided to "sue" the State of Montana.

Our friend David Knobel gave us a good tip. He told us to sign up for the Montana Supreme Court digest. It is sent out by Bowen Greenwood, the clerk of the Montana Supreme Court. And David was right, it is a great way to stay up to speed on news coming out of the Montana Supreme Court.

Here is one of the blurbs I saw in this week's digest:

DA 23-0359

Petitioner Thomas Nichols (“Nikki”) appeals a Third Judicial District Court order denying her petition for a sealed-record name change (“Petition”). Nikki is currently incarcerated at the Montana State Prison for committing sex crimes against children.

Did I hear this right? This dude is in prison for committing sex crimes against children, and now he wants everybody to call him "Nikki?" If I read the case right, he was able to get a name change signed off on by the courts, but the Supreme Court (rightly) refused to seal the records of his name change.

(And why does the Supreme Court keep calling "him" a "her." Do facts not matter in a court of law anymore? You could simply leave pronouns out altogether)

You want people to call you "Nikki?" Ok. Whatever. But here's my deal, a male sex offender who now wants to identify as a woman should never be allowed to be placed in prison with women. These women should be protected from male sex predators like this guy, no matter how they want to "identify." Some states have crazily been allowing men to be placed in women's prisons.
