People ask why does it seem that Democrats are taking such a pro-transgender stand.
Well…when the other side is pushing for genocide of trans people…
What other side is there to take?
It’s not complicated to be anti- genocide.
Transgender people are the shiny object of hate shoveled to the religious right now that Roe has been struck down.
The disrespect shown to the first transgender representative elected in Montana is just another example of GOP hate.

Zooey Zephyr is a hero.
Her courage in speaking up for her constituents—even amidst her microphone being cut off so that Montana Republicans wouldn’t have to hear words they disagree with from someone they consider subhuman—deserves *universal* admiration.

Jon interviewed Leslie Rutledge, Arkansas Attorney General, about why her state banned gender-affirming care for minors – ignoring the guidelines of major medical organizations and taking the decision out of parents’ hands. Watch the full interview on @AppleTVPlus pic.twitter.com/4SoH3orWa6

Whoa. This is the scene in Montana right now after Republicans silenced a transgender State Rep for speaking out against an anti-transgender bill. Republicans are pissing off young people in Montana & this is the response. Incredible. pic.twitter.com/qnd8O22biQ

MAGA Republicans are once again trying to silence the speech of those with whom they disagree. GOP legislators in Tennessee tried that and failed. These MAGA Montana GOP legislators will fail too. https://t.co/Q5dVIKGjdk

On the one hand, a State Rep in Florida called members of the public “demons” and faced no accountability. And on the other hand, the Montana GOP is taking a hacksaw to democracy because the truth hurt their feelings.

Here is the Disney complaint against DeSantis.
It’s 77 pages long.
I was wondering why Disney waited.
I saw on a couple of TikTok’s that Disney waited until it had been ‘ damaged’ by DeSantis’ stooge board. They took their first votes yesterday and voided about 17 billion dollars worth of contracts put in place by the previous board. When that happened, Disney had been ‘ damaged’ and filed suit.
DeSantis taps D.C. law firm billing $725 an hour to defend culture war laws
A conservative Washington, D.C., law firm with deep political connections has emerged as the courthouse defender of much of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ culture war agenda, raking in nearly $2.8 million in legal fees and contracts from taxpayers to defend some of his top priorities.
One of the firm’s star lawyers, Adam Laxalt, roomed with DeSantis during officer training school and is now running for U.S. Senate in Nevada with his endorsement.
Did you know about this company?🤔🤔
