Texas Congressional Candidate "Uncomfortable" Around Trans Students

To be fair, I'm not comfortable around Texas Republicans either

It is so heart-warming that this Texas congressional candidate thinks she just has the most perfect vision and deserves to be elected. It makes you wonder how much she really cares about the kids she is teaching. I can imagine her ripping into some poor kid who is different and then mocking the kid later. The other thing that is amazing is how many of these narcissists go running around trying to prove they are in someway "tougher" because they do not like anybody who is different. 

 

Either on a local, regional, state, or national level, you have to shake your head at the dismal state of politics in this country. Are folks like this, truly allowed to be candidates? I wonder. This woman is supposed to have an education...

There were highly educated Nazis that committed atrocities. I wish knowledge led to morals and ethics.

Erica,

 

You raise a great point. It is a sad commentary though. I just cringe thinking of some child trying to go to a teacher for some help and support, then having that cold, hard attitude tearing the child apart. I do not know what the answers are.

I know not all texans are bad people, but as someone on the outside looking in, does anything good ever come from Texas?  Over the last year or so I've watched as Texas tried to interfere in our elections in Michigan, as they did all they could to take away the right (and duty) to vote from minorities, as they tried to end-run around the constitution and supreme court  with the anti-abortion law, as young kids had to get up in front of their legislature to defend their own existences and now we have former teachers saying they didn't understand why it was wrong to allow other kids to make fun of trans kids, and this is just the stuff I remember...

It is such a pity that we have become such an easy target for political hate speech.  There has always been a history of belittling others for political gain instead of finding a way to move towards an inclusive society designed to support all.

Hate is too easily brought to folks.

 

Hugs,

Dangerous generalization. I’m from Texas. And you know what? It’s not nearly as bad here as the media would have you believe.

No they didn’t. 


Why is it we can expect an ID to drive, to fly, to open a checking account, to stay at a hotel, to buy alcohol, buy a firearm… but not to vote?

fair enough, "does anything good ever come from texas" was a bit of hyperbole and does make an unfair generalization.  Hard not to get angry though, when what those of us outside texas do hear are things like the governor is ordering parents of trans kids to be hunted down and prosecuted for child abuse.  It did come out later that a court did block that order so I do have hope that reason will prevail.

 

as for voter ID, that's not specifically what I was talking about (I agree you should need an ID of some kind to vote).  It was the actions taken to severely limit access to polling places and by fighting to eliminate the ability to vote by absentee ballot during peak covid.  From everything I had read at the time most of the places heavily affected by those efforts were largely minority populations.  republican lawmakers did the same thing in ohio and I recall some tried to do it here in michigan as well if that helps make it less of a texas-specific issue.  So  perhaps that particular thing was unfair as well since that is more of a republican politician thing.

 

So I do apologize for being a bit hyperbolic and snarky and for attributing an issue that is occurring across the country to texas in particular.  I'm sure the only news people hear about michigan are that we all want to kidnap the governor and that there are more pot dispensaries than grocery stores in our cities (this is kind of true in places).

It's the hardcore weirdoes that get the press.

Same with NC.

Yeah… this was the subject of at least 1.5 of my trans support group meetings. At first I thought he was just shooting his mouth off. Then I found out he actually put out an order.

 

And though it’s already being challenged, two major hospitals have already begun turning patients away.

 

That is infuriating. I’d sure love to know when “dead kids” became preferable to “trans kids.”

You should have seen the sea of people in line for testing, or at sporting events, or shopping.

 

I’d say voting is easily more important than any of those things.

True.  Unfortunately too many people would rather bitch about things than vote.

Indeed.

      Check your local LGBTQ+ center. I gave mine to a friend who donated them to the community where they live. They were much too nice to throw out.   Hugs!

      I’ve been wearing a bra with false breasts for almost a year, but i too have started to feel uncomfortable due to my breast growth. Yay!   So i’ve switched to some bra pads instead. It doesn’t feel as heavy or “natural”, but the lack of pressure is a definite plus.   Now I just need to find an organization to donate my old breasts to. Anyone know one? 😀   mara

      @JaycieI was in the Boston area for about 10 years with my previous (#3) wife. My job for 37 years was overwhelmingly male dominated. During those 10 years, my best friend was a woman. She came out to Chicago a few years after I left Boston to be the "Best Man" at my (most recent) wedding. Years ago by, and we exchange Christmas cards and occasional birthday cards. Sadly, I haven't told her that I'm getting divorced and transitioning. Lack of courage. Soon. Same for the friend who cut me off 5 years ago - maybe.    Funny, it only occurred to me as I wrote about the past regarding my chosen middle name. Renee means reborn, and that was my conscious reason for adopting it. I realized that, subliminally, it was because of Renee Richards.   @MmindyAgain, thank you from the bottom of my heart, and God bless you. Hugs to all at TGP.❤️

      Hmnn, worth a shot I mean using that angle [thank you] but issue with him is its his way and his way only, there is no compromising. I will try your way next time the topic comes up and will report back.

      I hope it feels really good to know that your wife supports you as she does. That she sees you as more than a collection of body parts and as a person who desires to be more themselves.

      You look amazing 💖

      At least maybe you can get the typewriter fixed properly now. Found one somebody was getting rid of and regret not picking it up.😔Oh well.

      Today I went out dressed as myself for the very first time.  It was only to the garage and back but that is far more than it has ever been before.  I also made an appointment with the local incursion clinic.  That's a very big step on my part.  To me it mean I want to move forward on my transition.  Gods, I'm so unsure.  I skipped my last appointment.  I HAVE to keep this one .

      Hannah,   I pray for you and your happiness with friends. Friends you make as Hannah, the woman you should have always been. Hannah is your chance to break the cycle of pushing people away. You will be okay, and I pray eventually happy.   Hugs,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Maybe try this approach; ask him to put himself in your place, and come up with a couple of suggestions that he thinks are good.  That kind of puts him in the "driver's seat" and allows him to see your side of things.  Might not work, but you never know.   Carolyn Marie

      I'm so glad you get to be yourself after all, I'm also sorry for all the losses you have suffered too!!   I had a total of 3-5 best male friends in my life most since grade school or college. One I have had no contact with for the last 10+ years and the others I see maybe 1 time a year if I'm lucky. They were my best friends and we saw each other most days for most of my life, now nothing. Thing is I don't even really miss them but I still like them if that makes sense. My absolute best friend was a woman friend from work and we were inseparable best of friends. I lost her friendship a few years ago because I was stupid. I still miss having her as a friend to this day. Hold tight to your BGFFs  they are hard to find and so precious!!!
