Trans Health Under Siege in the 2020s

Here we have another example of politicians who are sure they know better than Medical Associations or parents of children who are living with dysphoria. 

"North Dakota joins at least 13 other states that have enacted laws restricting or banning gender-affirming care for minors.

Republican lawmakers across the country have advanced hundreds of measures aimed at nearly every facet of trans existence this year.

That includes bans on gender-affirming medical care for minors, restrictions on the types of restrooms transgender people can use, measures restricting classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity, and bills that would out transgender students who want teachers to address them by the pronouns they use."

Welcome to the 1950s folks... your politicians, mindlessly making the world 'great' again ... right.

  1. If you don’t mind, I’d like to take a look at https://emilysvirtualrocket.blogspot.com. There are four sections:

    1- A Wikipedia section which features LGBT people of note. When possible, transgender folks are featured. On Sundays Leeja Miller takes over, with legal blogs.

    2- “Livin’ in Connecticut” is here, with various towns and cities featured. If you live in Connecticut, or know someone who does, please sign the petition.

    3- Transgender news is here. Various newspapers are featured, among others.

    4- Ed Trevors is here. He is an Anglican priest, with a liberal bent. I appreciate him more and more each day. I hope you will too.

    Please leave comments in the blog. Thanks.
