Texas Is Messing With Texans

The Junk Inspectors of Texas are getting started for the school year:

On the morning of Aug. 30, a 13-year-old transgender boy was pulled out of class by his school’s administrators, his mother says. While his classmates continued their studies, he sat in a conference room at a Texas middle school where a Department of Family and Protective Services investigator began asking personal questions, court records state.

The reason: The state agency was probing his family following a February directive from Gov. Greg Abbott (R) to investigate the use of gender-affirming care in minors as child abuse, according to court documents.

The nearly hour-long interview touched on a range of personal topics — from the teen’s medical history to his gender dysphoria diagnosis to his suicide attempt years back, court records state. The interrogation left the boy — identified under the pseudonym Steve Koe — shaking and distressed, according to a signed declaration from his mother, named as Carol Koe.

The Gret Stet of Texas said that they were going to do this, and look at that! They are! Believe them the first time.

We know what the rest of the threat is, too: Texas has stated that they are going to haul parents away for child abuse and put these kids into foster care, which is not going to help anyone. But better to break up an intact family than disappoint a theocrat on the ineffability of Gawd’s sacred plan.

    • Torturing her, of course. For Jeebus.

      Doing it loudly and publicly so the others get scared and comply with their opression.

    I was wondering that, too! At first I thought it was from a “Fitter Families” contest, but no — just as bad, though:
    “To enable fathers and mothers to order clothes with the confidence that a size 8 or 10, is all its supposed to be in length and breadth, the Bureau of Economics, U.S. Department of Agriculture, is undertaking the leadership of project in which colleges and universities will cooperate to discover the clothing dimensions needed by today’s children.. Special attention is being paid to racial characteristics as the experts believe that race and neighborhood has something to do with a youngster’s size.
