Beyond harmful.
Grecia Munoz wrote 11 months ago

This bill isn’t meant to protect anyone. If it passes thousands of trans youth will be at risk of being forcibly outed into unsafe situations. This bill would be responsible for a spike in suicide rates in not just LGBTQIA+ youth, but also their friends and family. Their classmates and friends will start skipping school to cope with the fact that one of their teachers outed their friend and led to their death. Our legislators preach about protecting children and the importance of education, this bill does none of that.
