Texas: Hurting People for Political Gains


 A lot of people and commentators said that the Texas Attorney General and the Governor were simply posturing when they said that they would pursue parents who support the children's gender identification if not conforming to their birth gender as Child Abuse.

So parents of trans kids will be viewed as child abusers. 

For everyone who thought that. Wrong. Here is from the NY Times story.

Among the first to be investigated was an employee of the state protective services agency who has a 16-year-old transgender child. On Tuesday, the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas and Lambda Legal went to state court in Austin to try to stop the inquiry.

The employee, who was not named in the court filing, works on the review of reports of abuse and neglect. She was placed on administrative leave last week, according to the filing, and on Friday was visited by an investigator from the agency, which is also seeking medical records related to her child. The family of the child, identified in court documents only as Mary Doe, has refused to voluntarily turn over the records.
