Spot on, Bridget. Especially this part. I don't think it can be stressed enough how the politics of today are synonymous with where you stand on basic human rights. Honestly, I could've highlighted every single word of this piece! Thank you for articulating so accurately the mental barriers us parents of trans kids face all the time. Well said.
