Female Prison Guards Can't Sue Over Masturbating Inmates

There's some jobs that, as a woman, you just wouldn't want, and being a prison guard is one of them. Here's why:

A group of female guards have been denied the right to sue the state of California over thousands of instances where male inmates have exposed themselves, ejaculated, and much, much more. The women claim this perverted and indecent behavior has been going on since 1989 — and the state hasn't done anything to stop it.

But Judge Phyllis Hamilton (yes, a woman) denied them the ability to sue the state as a class, saying, among other things, the complaints of the plaintiffs — including 10 women, as well as the estate of a deceased former guard — are not similar enough to move forward as a class action lawsuit. Apparently, a there's many different ways to classify the offense of an ejaculating man.
