Texas is at it AGAIN!

It is still legal in Texas to get affirming medical care for transgender children. Ken Paxton’s opinion and Governor Abbott’s directive have not changed anything. So mandatory reporters are not required to report affirming parents. Period. Of course, opinions and directives from adults in positions of power, embolden the bigots. And when Texas politicians are bullying trans children, the school bullies will feel free to do the same. It might be a political stunt, but it causes real harm to transgender children and their families.

Our Search for Affirming Care

A few years into our journey with our transgender son, we decided he needed affirming medical care. We had been going to the same pediatrician since he was a newborn. That pediatrician had retired by the time my son was ready to transition. However, the remnants of his practice that had always made me uncomfortable were still there.
