Transgender Rights Threatened Again

The story is on NBC.

Republicans are once again targeting transgender individuals with laws that will reduce access to medical care, restrict funding for schools that let transgender athletes participate in sports for their gender, and limit access to information and reading material regarding LGBTQ+ issues, specifically those facing transgender individuals.

The usual suspects are behind this including Kevin McCarthy, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, and Marco Rubio. McCarthy claims that the bills have the support of 127 out of 211 Republicans.

Once again, white cisgender bigots are targeting vulnerable minorities and fomenting hatred. It doesn’t help that the bill has no chance of passing. If the house changes, it will.
