Deep In The Heartless of Texas

Things are not going according to plan in Texas:

A Texas judge on Friday temporarily blocked the state from investigating families of transgender children who have received gender-confirming medical care, a new obstacle to the state labeling such treatments as child abuse.

Investigating parents for child abuse is one of the most depraved orders dimwitted theocrat and 2024 Goat Rodeo wannabe Gov. Greg ‘Rolling Thunder’ Abbott  has ever written, and that saying something.

“I do find that there is sufficient reason to believe that the plaintiffs will suffer immediate and irreparable injury if the commissioner and the (Department of Family and Protective Services) are allowed to continue to implement and enforce this new Department rule that equates gender affirming care with child abuse,” Soifer said at the end of a roughly 40-minute hearing.

Arresting parents for child abuse, splitting-up families, and throwing these vulnerable, suicide-prone kids into foster care is irreparable damage? You don’t say.

    Well, a band of young women called “Pussy Riot” formerly from Russia staged a protest at the Texass State Assembly building, and had a few things to say about their private parts. When I see things like this, it makes me feel more hopeful for our future. And what brave and bold young women they are…

    I’ve commented before about this, but it is worth stating again: This Texas legislation is like the eugenics-based ideology of the Nazis. It genuinely demonizes trans kids, as if they were vermin to be ID’d and removed from society. while ignoring the harm to their basic health, safety, and welfare. And the interference with children’s rights and with parental rights is massively illegal.

    We can expect much more of this after the Supreme Court kills Roe v. Wade. I think it’ll be open season on anyone who the Christo-fascists feel is “different.”

      We have to stand by our fellow citizens regardless of skin color, religion, gender, and/or sexual identity, as a counterweight to the hatred that motivates the Christo-fascists. “We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately”. Mr Franklin was entirely correct in his remarkable statement…

      • Fr. Niemöller expressed it far better, IMO:

        First they came for the Communists
        And I did not speak out
        Because I was not a Communist
        Then they came for the Socialists
        And I did not speak out
        Because I was not a Socialist
        Then they came for the trade unionists
        And I did not speak out
        Because I was not a trade unionist
        Then they came for the Jews
        And I did not speak out
        Because I was not a Jew
        Then they came for me
        And there was no one left
        To speak out for me

    Is “Rolling Blunder” already copyrighted?
