Texas Governor Gregg Abbott has directed Family & Protective Services to begin investigating all Trans kids in Texas. He’s also demanding that the parents be prosecuted as Child abusers. He has also instructed all Doctors, Teachers , & Caregivers to begin reporting any Trans kids they see. This is disgusting obviously and should be illegal. Where is the Department of Justice? He’s targeting Trans kids and it should be considered a hate crime. Here is the statement that he released.
There are plenty of actual crisis level problems in Texas right now and Trans kids getting to be who they are isn’t one of them. The electric grid for one, The border problem , Not the people crossing the people “guarding” the border under the direction of Abbott. Time and time again violating the human rights of people crossing. This is the Governor of a huge state in the year 2022 being Transphobic. He see them as an abomination, the only monster here though is Abbott & ANYONE that follows his rules. The letter says Honorable Jamie Masters. If he was honorable he would print it out, roll it up & slap Abbott in the face. It’s time, long past time to get Abbott out of office. It’s time to elect someone that will treat Trans kids/adults with the respect they deserve.
Making reporting requirements for all licensed professionals who have direct contact with children with fines if they don’t report is monstrous. He wants to “protect children from abuse” but we all know that Abbott doesn’t give a damn about Trans kids well being. Still no word from Biden as of this posting saying anything about Trans kids under attack in Texas.
Here he was during last years Pride Month. Saying the President has Transgender Americans back. Not surprising when it’s actually needed he’s silent.
Abbott will be fought tooth & nail on this. Trans people of Texas & the world has XUFN support. Here are a few groups/People that are fighting against Abbott.

I’ll of course be following up on this post with future posts until we defeat Abbott & his tyrannical ways.
