Dear Transphobic People
So let's get this party started.
Dear Transphobic People,
One of the things I've been quite pissed off about is you peeps who call yourselves Republicans or conservatives, mad because you lost the Obergefell SCOTUS case, retooling and turning your anti-gay industry and Right Wing Noise Machine loose on the trans community.
You ran your standard disinformation and demonization playbook. You've retooled the predator myth you used on the gay community to attack trans women, and attacked our trans kids and their parents.
And what made you peeps think that trans folks, who have fought tooth and nail and gone through hell to become their true selves, were going to just roll over for you?
Hell naw, we weren't. We're going to fight your GOP behinds tooth and nail until you leave us alone and stop attacking our humanity and human rights. .
But Pat McCrory found out that hatin' on trans people isn't the ticket to electoral success. So did former Texas House state reps Debbie Riddle (R-Tomball) and Gilbert Pena (R-Pasadena) who pushed four anti-trans bills that were defeated in the 2015 Texas Lege session and found themselves flushed by the voters outside of the Pink Dome when the 2017 session started.
We can only hope that Dan Patrick. Sen Lois Kolkhorst (R-Brenham) and Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr's (DINO-Brownsville) the only Democrat to vote for SB 6) political careers will suffer the same fate as SB 6 for messing with Texas trans kids and Texas trans women.
