Legislators in Oklahoma are quietly working overtime to permanently institutionalize anti-LGBTQ bigotry and are deliberately targeting those in the most need of protection and care — trans children.
In a vicious display of cruelty, Republicans in Oklahoma have passed a bill banning trans girls from participating in any team sports, ostracizing and stigmatizing them for who they are while actively discriminating against children who want to play athletic games with their peers.
Call on the Biden administration to protect trans kids and overturn Oklahoma's bigoted bill!
Make no mistake; this bill is going to heap psychological trauma and hardship upon trans kids Surveys show that 14% of trans youths have tried to commit suicide, including over half of all transgender male youths. Young people shouldn't have to feel like they're being oppressed, harassed, and rejected by their own state government.
This bill is nothing but a deeply cynical and morally reprehensible attempt to rile up the GOP's voting base and fuel the ferocious culture-war hysteria that the GOP is hoping to ride to victory in the 2022 midterm elections — and they're bullying children to do it.
We need the federal government to step in and help protect our children from these heartless bigots!
Tell the DOJ to fight Oklahoma's discriminatory anti-trans children bill!
