A new kind of bill, SB5599, just passed the House in Washington. It protects the rights of trans teenagers who enter licensed shelters from being reported to parents.
Oh, my heart just grew three sizes for those who can access these protections. Still on tenterhooks for the rest of us.
Am I alone in wishing that Jenner would just go the fuck away? (Sorry for my language.)
Thank you, Washington state, for READING THE ROOM.
But I see Caitlin and DonDon are talking to themselves in the MIRROR again!
Finally a voice for those who have no voice!
Thank goodness for sanity prevailing in SOME states.
Oh, this is wonderful to read!
Such wonderful news 😭
Great news! And it's got junior's panties in a bunch, so all the better.
of course Jenner would be opposed. She is the worst
Ooooooh there's some big mad from the right about this bill passing.
Good. Maybe they'll move away and we'll have more space for rational people.
This is really going to freak people out. They will say things that will make their freaking out sound like protecting kids. Except kids grow up. It's not right for a parent to try to force them to live a certain way if it permanently affects their life because it quickly becomes an adult life, and can be a life that they don't want if parents impose their will alone. But kids are not our property. If my kid is 16 in my state (I think) they can seek an abortion without my permission. The opposite of the other law requiring parental permission. Girls I knew in my teens always found a way around that law The parents of a pregnant teen don't have the baby. So it makes sense if you think a child should not be forced to bear a child. Your kids' body isn't your body. If your child is transgender it's their body. They always have to live in this body, not you. But it's extremely sad that any parent or even any person doesn't understand this --that the kid has their own body, they separate from you and become adults and your preferences should be about what their future desires will be for their kids life, not your wishes, so you must be willing to give them a life they want to live not a life you want.
Hats off to Washington! Wtf is wrong with Caitlyn though...she almost never ceases to disappoint me.
