Contact Governor Lee as dangerous anti-trans bills head to his desk

As of May 18, Governor Lee has now signed all three of these anti-trans bills, in addition to his earlier signing of the anti-trans student athlete bill and the bill that allows parents to opt their children out of sexual orientation/gender identity curriculum in public schools.

HB1233 is an anti-transgender student bathroom bill that offers trans students separate and unequal accommodations in our public schools. Tennessee could be the only state this year to enact a bathroom bill this year. (signed into law)

HB1182 is the anti-transgender bathroom sign mandate bill that applies to businesses and organizations that have a trans-inclusive policy for multi-person restrooms. The bill requires them to put up a demeaning sign about biological sex. It could lead to increased policing of trans people in restrooms and aggression towards trans-inclusive businesses. (signed into law)

SB126 is a bill that puts into the Tennessee Code standards for gender-affirming care for trans youth. Why is that a bad idea? It is discriminatory because we don’t normally put standards of care into the law and if the standard of care changes based on research, we shouldn’t have to amend the law. It could also invite more restrictive amendments in future legislative sessions. (signed into law)

Contact Governor Lee today at 615-741-2001 and let him know your views on anti-transgender legislation.

    First it’s anti-trans and then anti-race, anti-religion when will this stop? Where is equality in these laws. How many medical doctors who work with transgenders were consulted before passing these bills? My son did not choose to have gender dysmorphia he was born this way. Children who are different use to be locked away and neglected by their parents. This would now be considered child abuse. These laws are essentially demanding that parents of transkids neglect our kids and lock them away and are stating this is not child abuse?!?!?! What is so wrong with a parent wanting their child to live their best life by allowing an implant which gives them the mental self esteem they need to wake up in the morning and live. Parents who’s kids were born what is deemed “normal” are allowed to gift their kids boob jobs, nose jobs, and other cosmetic procedures as young as age 15. I’m a trans-parent, fighting for equality for All people! If you choose not to veto these bills, I will remind you of the life my son could have had. He just wants acceptance. We have lived through this life of mental health and depression with him. Getting him the proper healthcare he deserved changed his life. I implore you to veto these bills for sake of lives that are in your hands.

    Sincerely
    Trans-parent to Charlie a boy who’s only choice was to be himself.
