Gov Abbott of Texas now wants those helping trans kids reported because it is ‘child abuse’
From Florida to South Dakota to Texas, if you’re a Republican state governor in the USA, you are an enemy of LGBTQ+ people and a blatant transphobe. In a move almost to compete with the likes of South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem and Florida’s Gov Ron DeSantis, Gov Greg Abbott’s new position on trans kids is possibly even MORE cunty.
In a move that’s reminiscent to laws proposed in Ghana (not even joking), Abbott’s intention is OF COURSE under the guise of “protecting children.” He wrote a letter to the Department of Family and Protective Services saying that care for trans kids ie. puberty-blockers etc is “child abuse.”
The letter went event further (and darker) by advising “all licensed professionals who have direct contact with children,” including teachers and doctors, to “report such child abuse” and said those who don’t should be subject to criminal records.
These are dark times in US politics and once again it’s LGBTQ+ youth who are in the firing line.
