    Did we do that? I was under the impression that half of the states are in the process of making it illegal to be trans and nobody was stopping them.

      Not for lack of trying. The problem is that to be stopped, they have to be stopped every time they try it, but they just have to succeed once.

        Fair nuff. It’s easy to be doomer about this stuff but it’s still an ongoing fight, far from settled.

      The point he’s making is that we need to be saying “Hell no”, because there’s no version of letting them come after one minority that doesn’t eventually fuck us all. We all know how the poem goes. We’re grown-ass adults with the benefit of knowing history, we should be able to stand up and refuse to let anyone be the target of the right.

      The fact that some people seemingly can’t manage even that is damning.
