The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled yesterday that transgender youth can use the bathroom of their gender identity, reaffirming an earlier ruling.
The lawyers for the schools are absolute ghouls.
The “if you aren’t suicidal we haven’t bullied you enough” subtext from the school is chilling af
Woo boy. The USSC could really hurt us if they want to.
My heart breaks for the kids who are suffering and will continue to suffer. How is this constant litigation, now likely as you report to the Supreme Court, not child abuse?
Donalds, DeSantis and Gaetz have been inspired by a Klu Klux Klan and Neo Nazi playbook.
These Right Wing politicians are using trans minors as scapegoats. During the desegregation of public schools after the Brown separate but equal decision, the burden of implementing it was placed on minors.
Read the article about the first school to desegregate. Their parents were in a panic about how to protect their children. As MLK sang, we shall overcome.
Though of course I am pleased with the decision in this case, the fiercely determined anti-trans contingent, combined with contrasting decisions in more conservative circuits, will probably (as Erin notes) push this all the way to the Supreme Court. And with a 6-3 conservative majority there, that cannot be a good thing. Probably the best that could be hoped for in that scenario is a Dobbs-like situation,where states and jurisdictions can decide their own bathroom laws, and the normally politically “blue” places will (hopefully) decide to enact or keep protections.
I don’t mean to be a Debbie Downer, but I don’t have a ton of hope with this Supreme Court. For this but also I’m really scared what will happen especially when they get a GAC for minors case. 😭
If the Supreme Court takes this up someone in Congress should hold up all funding for restroom facilities for Supreme Court Justices until that is defunded. Let them use the public restrooms.
Looks like it's going to be up to scotus to determine if we're going to live in apartheid
What do you think our chances are with SCOTUS? I’m worried that with the conservative majority the outcome is predetermined unless by some miracle Kennedy and Roberts break in our favor.
