Mississippi - Mississippi lawmakers propose ‘license to harass’ for transphobic teachers

Zack Ford
ThinkProgress


ezs note:  If you haven't heard of this yet, HB1176 is an absolutely repulsive bill that allows 'teachers' to harass transgender students with impunity.  If you live in Mississippi, please tell your legislators to vote 'no' on this bill.  If you live outside Mississippi, please tell your legislators that if this bill passes, Mississippi will no longer be on your state's dime.  I have already contacted State Rep. Jillian Gilchrest. (D-CT)
