Genital-obsessed Republicans in South Dakota attempt anti-transgender legislation
Creepy lawmakers in South Dakota are mouth-foamingly obsessed with people’s genitals, namely the genitals of children, transgender children, in public schools. Their obsession with what’s in the pants of twelve year old students has made it to the state senate. “By a 15-20 vote, the South Dakota state senate passed a bill on Tuesday to ban transgender students from using school restrooms that correspond with their gender identity,” reports Dominic Holden of Buzzfeed. CHRIST, isn’t being a teenager hard enough without some old Republican man getting all worked up over your gender identity?
Indeed, it is hard for transgender kids in ways that these men could never fathom. More than HALF of transgender youth will attempt to take their own lives before they hit twenty, and it’s obvious that this is because of a world and society that rejects them again, and again, and again. Senator Brock (like the Pokemon character) Greenfield asked, “Do you feel it appropriate for a 13-year-old girl to be exposed to the anatomy of a boy?” Woah, let’s dial it back a few notches, dude. Have you ever spoken to a teenager, much less seen what a women’s bathroom even looks like? Do you think that ladies are just trading vagina peeks in public washrooms, or is this just the weird fantasy that you’ve likely come up with?
The Governor of this hot mess of a state, Dennis Daugaard, (sorry to progressives hanging out in South Dakota; solidarity, friends!) recently stated that “I have not met a transgender person that I’m aware of.” Okay champ, well perhaps you should get on that seeing as you might be the deciding factor in how transgender KIDS are allowed to function in everyday life.
The whole lot of these Republicans are a creepy bunch. I’m excited to see how they deal with boycott pressure when this whole thing turns around on them.
