This right here below is a 48 second history lesson which folks like myself have been trying to communicate to the public for the longest. The recent legislative attack on transgender Americans under the guise of "protecting women and children" is nothing more than a continuation of the lies the religious right and their allies used to claim that children needed to be "protected from homosexuality in the 1970s. It also illustrates that our community cannot rely on the media (and especially podcasting frauds like Joe Rogan) to do the right thing in telling the story. It's up to us and our allies to forcefully educate people on this.
Today’s attacks on trans youth are the latest in a long line of anti-LGBTQ rhetoric focused on kids. pic.twitter.com/ngZAjsSNZi— ACLU (@ACLU) May 10, 2021
