Our Sadistic Journalist/Pundit Class

What did they think was going to happen?
According to the lawsuit, a 16-year-old transgender boy tried to kill himself the same day that Abbott issued the child abuse directive.

“[He] said that the political environment, including Abbott’s Letter, and being misgendered at school, led him to take these actions,” the lawsuit said.

He survived the attempt and was admitted to an outpatient psychiatric facility, where staff learned that he was undergoing hormone therapy. A week after he was discharged, an investigator from DFPS visited the family’s home and, according to the lawsuit, said that the psychiatric facility had reported the family for child abuse. The family remains under investigation.

Hating trans people is a cool kids club thing. People have told me a few names over the years, and, well, they aren't necessarily who you'd think!

Extra sad thing is that like so many things it's a lot fueled by older people's brains being sizzled by rage because young people think they're weird and out of touch. Not a new phenomenon, but until recently I didn't realize how much it would lead people to be willing to burn everything and everybody down.

Oh no, I saw prononuns in someone's email signature! Gotta admit that Mr. Abbott has a point!!!
