Senator Mike Moon defended child marriage the same night in which a gender affirming care ban passed the Missouri House. Senator Moon has sponsored several anti-trans bills.
JFC I can’t even
I have always assumed that sharing personal stories is an effective way for politicians to advocate for trans rights. Appealing to people's emotions is of course effective, but this video is somewhat eye opening as to the limits of this. This man apparently knows a 12-year-old marriage victim who is "still married" and I guess the implication is that they are loving life in this long marriage. Knowing this personal anecdote alone is almost more appalling because this isn't even an abstract situation for him. He apparently knows multiple 12-year-olds who have gotten married and is supportive based on his experience. Just something that struck me that it is probably crucial that statistics/facts are used immediately along with personal stories when communicating.
The actual and literal grooming of children, mostly girls is totally fine to these people. But please, do go on about how LGBTQ people are “grooming” kids.
Not surprised at the least. I honestly think that these lawmakers are addicted to transgender porn and are afraid what will happen if transgender kids grow up to be indistinguishable from cis folks.... because what will get them off then?
I was appalled when I saw that video Erin. I thank you for your service.
Un. Be. Leivable. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. Ugh!
Once again, thank you for your deep reporting. This is some scary s*!t to read about. #resist #lovethiscommunity
