My dog has a name. Even fucking goldfish have names.
My name, Toni Grace, is my legal name and its on my license, voter registration and my social security card…etc. It was changed by a State of Connecticut Court when I transitioned.
…and you better use it when you speak to me face to face.
But its a little more delicate when we are speaking about children. How do you suppose those trans kids feel with this bigot, as a authority figure, refusing to even acknowledge their names, let alone their gender!
Ill give you an analogy. Google Jewish students in Nazi Germany or Black children in the 1960’s Deep South. That’s how they feel!
In this so called “enlightened society” we are falling back to those dark days where bigotry ruled. The courts under the current administration are stripping our rights as trans people away at a alarming rate
I believe we are in for the fight of of lives against this spiral of bigotry and hate and I pray that it doesn’t take the price that other groups have had to pay in order to achieve equity.
Pay attention my friends…Rome is burning.
