Arkansas continues to lead the way for GQP gawd-botherers to pick on children:

Transgender name ban advances

Bill would deny kids say on identity

Arkansas teachers wouldn’t be required to address students by a name or pronoun inconsistent with the student’s biological sex under proposed legislation that passed Thursday in the House, one of the latest of several measures in the state Legislature that human-rights advocates say targets transgender people.

The vote on House Bill 1749 came two days after lawmakers prohibited hormone treatments, puberty blockers and transition-related surgeries for transgender minors.

Transkids have enough problems to deal with without having the teachers pick on them, too.

Lawmakers who opposed HB1749, as well as LGBT-rights advocates, say it protects teachers who intentionally misgender students who are transgender, which sponsor Rep. Mary Bentley, R-Perryville, has acknowledged would be the case…

“It’s not compelling anyone’s speech. It’s not prohibiting anyone’s speech. It’s helping those professors and teachers in our schools that do not want to be sued for not using a certain person’s pronoun,” Bentley said.

Are there any examples of kids suing teachers over pronouns? Of course not.

Bentley said schools should do more to address things like students changing their name between classes or identifying as an animal.

“We have a real issue in our state, and I need our districts to take a look at this and do more than this bill does,” Bentley said. “This bill is just a first step to help protect our teachers but when we have students in school now that don’t identify as a boy or a girl but as a cat, as a furry, we have issues.”

I’ll say you have issues, Bentley. You shouldn’t be allowed around children.

I don’t know what pronouns Bentley uses, but I know what nouns and adjectives I would use for her/it.

    Rep. Bentley is an example of a person who (or “that”, as she’d say) who makes me cringe when they speak. Shame on her, shame on that House.

    Worry all the time. I live right by our burial ground. If they will be burned we do that also.
    We say he and she. No problem. We are not limited with that. It is an invention. A person is allowed to choose who they want to be. It is not important about their gender.
    That’s my advice, and that’s why i think latinx was not useful idea.
    I hear all this bullshit about the generations XYZ and Millennials and Boomers OK?
