“Arkansas Governor Signs Bill Targeting Trans Children.” That’s the headline from Time Magazine.
Oh my. That sounds bad, doesn’t it? Has the governor allowed hunting trans children from helicopters like Sarah Palin did with wild wolves years ago?
No. But that’s what Time Magazine clearly wants you to think. Sarah Huckabee Sanders is malevolently plotting some nefarious plot against trans children like that weird evil dude from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang who kidnapped children.
That dude gave me nightmares when I was a kid.
So what actually happened?
Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday signed a bill into law that bars transgender people from using school restrooms that do not align with the sex listed on their birth certificate, the latest in a series of GOP-led legislative efforts to restrict LGBTQ rights in schools.
The bill, which cleared the state’s legislature earlier this month, covers restrooms, locker rooms, changing rooms and shower rooms. It allows superintendents, teachers and principals to be fined a minimum of $1,000 if they do not comply with the law, which applies to pre-K through 12th grade in public and charter schools. It goes into effect in late summer, Sanders’ office said.
The law requires “multiple occupancy restroom or changing areas,” be used by those of the same sex “as identified on his or her original birth certificate issued at or near the time of his or her birth,” the law says.
OOoooooooooohhhhhh. Well that’s a bit different. So we could just as easily say, “Arkansas Governor Signs Bill Protecting Children from Predators.”
In fact, wouldn’t that be closer to the truth and the intent of the law? But no. They don’t care about truth. The media only cares about spin. How to make half the country look like hate filled bigots so that the Democrat Party can look like the heroes of compassion and tolerance.
But that’s why we’re here. We fixed it for them.

If opinions are still allowed…, they really ought to propose a law that institutes the death penalty for surgeons and operatives providing or assisting in sex changes not in agreement with ones DNA on people under 18. Life in prison without parole over 18. After a fair trial of course, if that’s still possible.
And they ought to suppress the APA.

Interesting that restricting rights is always the paradigm being put forth. I would say, ensuring the rights and safety of young girls/women from potential harm (based on evidence) of males in the female restrooms. Quite the spinning of yarns by our media.

Is the author seriously suggesting that trans boys and girls are sexual predators for using a bathroom that aligns with their gender identity? Just how many incidents of trans sexual predatory behavior were there in the last year? Any trans boy brave enough to use the boy’s bathroom or locker room should be applauded for courage.

There is no bravery or courage for someone who suffers from gender dysphoria and is continuously persuaded to live in their fantasy by others. Learn your science. There are two sexes and two genders. You call them brave when bravery has nothing to do with it. People have convinced them that it is their right to be what they want no matter if it is fantasy and it offends anyone else. . What about the boys who do not want a girl who fantasizes being a boy in their bathroom or locker room? Or how about the girls who do not want a boy in the girls bathroom or locker room because their illness tells them they are a girl? It is an illness not a lifestyle and mutilating a healthy body to fix a sick mind is even more sick and perverse.

Instead of mutilating those who suffer from gender dysphoria(there is no such thing as transforming from one sex to another) why not show them true compassion and help them seek mental health professionals who could possibly help them in the real sense and bring them back to living in reality. Many people will have to answer to lying and propagating a lie to these people who are mentally ill and cannot help themselves, either in this world or the next. People will pay for this.

children suffering from gender dysphoria are not physically at risk.
it is wrong to perform medical procedures on people who are not physically sick or injured.
