No. Not actually.
Teaching bigotry is wrong, but not quite to the level of lopping off offending appendages of minors.
Says you. And when a government is elected that sees things the other way (with better factual support, given the number of suicides and other diseases of depression caused by untreated gender dysphoria), this will set the precedent necessary to act on that judgment.

We've been here before, where government literally takes over lives because it doesn't like the way people are living those lives. It's not pretty. You really don't want to go there.

And by the way, my understanding is that surgery generally is not performed until after the age of majority. --Bob

Well, then

If course one must define which actual definition of bigotry is correct. Which newspeak is acceptable.
My point exactly. Abbott is preparing to use the power of Texas state government to take kids away from their parents because he thinks he knows better than the parents what's good for the kids. You really don't want to give that power to state government in that circumstance, because if you do, then when the pendulum of government swings the other way (as it inevitably will), you really won't like how that power gets used. --Bob

Yes, actually. It's begun. --Bob

But this is like prosecuting parents for insisting on traditional medical care, when the State of Texas wants them to rely on faith healing.

You have no evidence, other than bigotry, that these parents aren't doing right by their kids. The State of Texas is using its power to interfere with that relationship for no reason other than to implement that bigotry. This is far, far worse than anything that's happening with public schools, and I think it will result in a backlash that makes the public school issue look like a tempest in a teapot.

Particularly if a transgender kid is actually removed from the parents' home and then commits an act of self-harm as a consequence of that removal. --Bob

Lia Thomas won the NCAA championship in the 500-yard freestyle, her strongest event, beating the field by almost two seconds. She became the first known transgender athlete to win an NCAA Div I championship in any sport. The championships are being held at Georgia Tech this weekend. According to the ESPN article, the applause she received when introduced was noticeably less than that for the other swimmers. Although Thomas comfortably outpaced this field, her time was nine seconds off Katie Ledecky's world record in the event. FYI, NCAA events are contested on a 25-yard pool (because many colleges don't have longer pools), not 25 or 50 meters as in international competition. A number of protestors both for and against Thomas held up signs outside the arena. Most of the other swimmers in the competition spoke in favor of Thomas, including runner-up Emma Weyant from the University of Virginia. Thomas will also compete in the 200-yard freestyle tomorrow and the 100-yard freestyle on Saturday.

Turns out bigots are good at bigotry and at getting elected as Republicans. Which is why the national Republican Party deserves to suffer the same fate — electoral irrelevance — that it has already suffered in California. —Bob

Stating facts doesn't equal bigotry. Except in the weak-minded.

You've hit the nail on the head.

And speaking suffering a fate of electoral irrelevance, November will be here before we know it, and if Bob is not concerned he should be (but not really because it is what is best for him, he just won't admit it).

FINA, the world's international swimming governing organization, has just changed its eligibility requirements for transgender athletes to compete in women's elite competition, including the Olympic Games. From now on, trans women must have completed their transition by age 12 to compete in women's events. FINA also announced that it would form a new "open" category in which other trans women could compete, although how that category would work is uncertain. This policy would prohibit Lia Thomas from competing in the 2024 Summer Olympics.

29 year old trans beats out a 13 year old female in skateboarding competition.

Whatever their pronouns are must be so proud of their achievement in addition to getting the cash award.

This has a word for it. it's called CHEATING.


https://nypost.com/2022/06/27/trans-wom ... g-contest/
Skateboarder Taylor Silverman led the chorus of discontent, writing in an Instagram post: “Male wins women’s finals and money at Boardr Open NYC presented by DC today. My story is not unique in skateboarding.”

Silverman, who has been skateboarding for 11 years, previously complained on social media that she had lost to transgender rivals twice, including at the Redbull Cornerstone competition in May, when she missed out on $5,000 in prize money by coming in second.

“I deserved to place first, be acknowledged for my win, and get paid,” she wrote. “I reached out to Redbull and was ignored. I am sick of being bullied into silence.”
I especially like this quote:
The outlet said Tres took hormones to suppress her testosterone but still came in over the limit.

Tres served four years in the Navy and had three kids with her now ex-wife before becoming a woman, according to The Mail.

The pair still live together in Los Angeles and co-parent their children, according to the report.

“I am 28, I have three kids, I’m married, I did my time in the military, I own a company,” she said in an interview, according to the Mail. “I’ve decided that I like being pretty and cute.”
