In what may bring back memories of Proposition 8, the ill-fated initiative banning gay marriage that was ruled unconstitutional, California may see anti-trans ballot initiatives introduced soon.
None of us will be safe anywhere if a Republican wins the White House in 24.
As a Californian, I greatly appreciate you letting us know that this attempt to put hate on the ballot is happening. I would hope we can organize and get in front of this to kill it in the signing stage. I'll be contacting my local pride center and I suggest other Californians do as well. Let's find a way to get the word out so no one signs this atrocity.
I can't even imagine what it's like to be Chloe Cole. The amount of misery she has heaped on the trans community, especially trans youth, will follow her forever, no matter what she does or where she goes. It wasn't the fault of the trans community that she made shitty decisions. It's only a matter of time before she kicked to the curb with the likes of Jenner, Buck Angel, and that traitor Erica Anderson, et al. She's just as young and impressionable now as she claims she was as a transitioning teen, but now she sees her allies as phony patriots, Nazis, and liars for Jesus. If she wasn't running all over the country collecting her grifted expense funds from the pockets of the religious right, I'd almost feel sorry for her. Almost.
When she puts on her victim hat and hits her solo detrans testimony circuit, and looks out at the sea of trans people and parents of trans kids staring back. It's hard to get your head around the level of arrogance it takes for her to believe that she is a better judge of what's right for the trans community than actual trans people.
The large majority of trans people are happy with their medical decisions. The small number of people who aren’t should not be spokespersons for the rest. Even though this awful initiative may not pass or get enough signatures, California seems a little less long-term safe to me than it did just a few days ago.
Screw them. I'm in California and there's not a chance in hell these ballot measures win, even should they get them qualified. Most Californians are staunchly behind the LGBTQ community. What a colossal waste of time and money. Shame on them.
The Republican party truly deserves the truly deserving and historical beat down in the next few elections. Something big has to happen to break the fanatical base into fragments
If these people didn’t have hate they wouldn’t have anything. I wish their sad existences would not have such a great impact on all the rest of us folks who are happy to accept folks as they are.
Erin, or anyone actually, how can I help spread the word?
I am wondering if they’re hoping opposition to it will get lost in all the Trump trial chaos. Either through voter fatigue or unawareness.
