After a concerning number of US states launched their 2024 legislative sessions by introducing bills targeting transgender healtcare, it’s a relief for advocates everywhere to see politicians like governor Laura Kelly taking a stand against anti-trans bills.

On Friday (12 April), Kelly blocked the Substitute Bill for Senate Bill 233 which would prohibit medical personnel from performing gender-affirmation surgery and treatment on trans children. The bill would also allow a civil cause of action against medical providers offering such treatment, with professional disciplinary action taken against doctors.

The bill would further restrict the use of state funds to promote gender-affirming treatment, and prohibit professional liability insurance firms from covering damages for healthcare professionals offering it.

In her veto message, Democrat Kelly said that the bill “tramples parental rights”. She explained: “This divisive legislation targets a small group of Kansans by placing government mandates on them and dictating to parents how to best raise and care for their children. I do not believe that is a conservative value, and it’s certainly not a Kansas value.”
The Republicans take away our healthcare, they don’t care what harm it does as long as it gets them votes! They only care about “Family Values” when it is their values being shoved down our throats.
Definitions outlined in the bill also state a female is a person who produces “ova” – in other words, eggs – meaning cis women who are infertile and are unable to produce eggs, or postmenopausal women could theoretically be barred from spaces under the legislation’s legal terms.

The bill was passed by 84 votes to 40 in the House and subsequently 28-12 in the Senate.
They say that it is to protect the children but that is all a pack of lies! They know it does harm, they heard testimony from medical professionals but they ignored them for the votes of their cult followers. They also ignored intersex people in their mad dash to do us harm and votes.

The other day I went to my cousin’s memorial service at a Catholic church. I didn’t know what to expect, but I was prepared for the worst but it turned out to be a none even… totally.

Let’s face it, I stick out like a sore thumb. If you can’t tell I’m trans you need glasses and a hearing aid.

At the wake… no problem.

At the funeral service… totally no problem. And the Deacon stood right in front of me since being immediate family we had the front row seat. The only thing was some guy gave his wife sore ribs when he elbowed her after seeing me.

The only problem that I had was my back. During the service the sitting, standing, sitting… standing got to my back. Those who know me know that I have a hard time standing. Also the hard chairs at the funeral home are not conducive to sitting so that meant standing around talking.

Anyhow, my back blew out and I left at the reception brunch. Now I’m home doing exercises that the physical therapist taught me.
