It’s the Republicans Again

They think up the most draconian, hateful, and dangerous laws for us.
Get a load of the bill they introduced in Ohio.
Opponents of 'Parent's Rights Bill' say it's unnecessary, discriminatory against transgender youth

COLUMBUS (WCMH) -- Ohio lawmakers are considering a bill that strips judicial discretion in some family cases involving kids and gender-based treatments.

This all came about after a judge in Hamilton County granted custody of a teenager girl to their grandparents after the parents refused to allow the child to receive a hormone treatment to identify outwardly as a boy.

Back in February Citizens for Community Values rallied against the court ruling in Hamilton County.

Friday, president of the organization Aaron Baer explained his support for House Bill 658 (HB 658) via Skype while he was attending a conference in Grand Rapids, MI.

“You can have whatever views you want on LGBT issues and on all of these things,” said Baer. “This is about insuring parents are the ones in charge of their child’s upbringing, not the state, not anyone else.”
Then another part of the bill…
Republican bill would force teachers to ‘report’ boys to their parents if they aren’t manly enough

A Republican-backed bill in Ohio would force teachers to out children to their parents if they do not conform to the “manner” of their “biological sex”.

The bill, submitted by Republicans Thomas Brinkman and Paul Zeltwanger, would force schools, doctors, and care providers to immediately notify the parents of any pupil who acts “in a manner opposite of the child’s biological sex.”

It states: “If a government agent or entity has knowledge that a child under its care or supervision has exhibited symptoms of gender dysphoria or otherwise demonstrates a desire to be treated in a manner opposite of the child’s biological sex, the government agent or entity with knowledge of that circumstance shall immediately notify, in writing, each of the child’s parents and the child’s guardian or custodian.
Although apparently targeted at transgender youth, the provision on “manner” is so loosely worded that campaigners have warned it could even be deployed against boys who don’t want to play football.
This flies in the face of all medical research that shows by allowing a child to explore their gender it reduces self-harm in the children.

This legislation is going to cost the lives of our youth but the Republicans don’t care if we die.
