Tennessee & Arkansas Go After Trans Youth With New Bills Comments (0)

Tennessee is the latest state whose GOP legislators are going after trans children — because they're low-hanging fruit.

The Tennessee House has passed an odious bathroom bill that would require businesses that allow trans people to use the bathroom of their choice to post offensive signage to that effect.

HRC's Melodía Gutiérrez says:

After watching Governor Bill Lee sign Melodia-gutierrez-hrc-boyculturetheir discriminatory anti-transgender sports bill into law on Friday, The Tennessee House quickly moved to revisit an old, failed anti-equality fight, the so-called “Bathroom Bill” and continue their relentless assault against LGBTQ and specifically transgender people. Denying transgender people the ability to play sports or access the bathroom consistent with their gender identity is part of a pernicious, degrading, and  systematic attempt to dehumanize one of our most vulnerable communities. Transgender children especially are faced with heightened levels of anxiety, depression, and dysphoria when they are denied the chance to live consistent with their identity. The people of Tennessee are facing serious challenges that affect their everyday lives, from healthcare to infrastructure, including a pandemic that requires decisive action from its state leaders. Instead, the legislature is focused on targeting transgender people and advancing their “Slate of Hate.”

And BTW, most Republicans don't care about where trans people pee — though more and more decide they do when their GOP reps whip it into a social wedge issue.

Not to be outdone, Arkansas is moving closer to a law that would ban all gender-affirming health care to trans kids. I guess Big Government is only a no-no when you're a right-winger?

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Is Considered Qualified To Be Governor In Arkansas — No, Really Comments (0)

Sarah Huckabee Sanders — Trump's former lyin' mouthpiece — is bragging that she needed Secret Service protection because she was such a truth-teller, claiming that a servicemember called her former job as tough as his and, of course, railing against cancel culture in her video announcing she is running for governor of Arkansas.

I can't imagine living in a state that believes she is qualified to be anything other than a demagogue. She leans hard on all the attacks on freedom and ideas, but:

Also, she says (in vilifying “the radical left”):

As governor, I will be your voice — and never let them silence you.

So much for unity, launching a campaign built on us vs. them.

She also announces that Arkansas is some kind of amazing land of opportunity because of Walmart ... but, like, how many businesses actually thrive there again?

The surest sign yet that Trumpism is not close to dead.
