Florida politics, transition being banned 

"Florida begins rule-changing process to ban gender-affirming care for trans youth"

"The proposed standards would ban trans youth care recommended by major health groups and require waiting periods for trans adults to begin treatment"


"...including “social” transitioning measures like changing pronouns or wearing different clothes."

"The department also suggested that physicians who are already supporting patients who are receiving that care should stop – which would allow the state to forcefully detransition transgender people in Florida."

"How Florida Twisted Science to Deny Healthcare to Trans Kids"


",,,VICE News found that all 12 citations Florida presents against the use of gender-affirming care are either distorted or from a source with clear anti-trans bias."

"Abortion rights are trans rights,” Dee Ojeda, senior national organizer for the National Center for Transgender Equality, told VICE News. “They’re one and the same. It’s all about having rights to our bodily autonomy, having rights to getting the medically necessary healthcare we need.”

re: Florida politics, transition being banned 

Just to be clear, this push to make transition illegal for kids and near-impossible for adults is only the legal thrust of an effort that's long been socially enforced in Florida.

I lost my Florida doctor of seven years when I started to transition. His office stopped even being willing to take my calls. And that was for a chronic illness, not trans stuff.
