Your vote is your voice. If you vote for politicians who support legislation that discriminates against transgender people… that limits their ability to get the essential, life-saving medical care they need, or that does not allow them the full rights and privileges that every cisgender person has, then you do not support transgender rights, and you do not support my child or my family.
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.
