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

Zack Ford

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)

ezs note:  This is a rather compelling pair of articles.  However, if you read one, I strongly suggest that you read the other.  Jesse Singal's piece is at https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2018/07/when-a-child-says-shes-trans/561749/.
When you read both, I hope you will reach an informed decision.  IMHO, while much of Singal writes is thoroughly discredited, there are other parts which Ford stretches... ahem... a bit. But I dunno.  What do you think?
PS - Also see from my archive Here's A Huge New Survey Of Transgender Americans(also by Singal)

ezs note:  I am cautiously optimistic regarding the use of Truvada.  It certainly wouldn't hurt.  Be aware, though, that there is a virus in Cuba which is more stubborn than the old HIV/AIDS virus.  Be safer and ask your doctor.
