Tennessee's Governor Signs Bill Outlawing "Gender Therapy" for "Prepubescent" Children (But Not Any Children Who Have Begun to Go Through Puberty)
Kristi Noem Signs a Real Law into Effect

Lot of transgender news today. I didn't make the schedule.

Note that the fact that this bill only applies to prepubescent minors means it barely protects any children at all.

It's a hoax. It's another Con the Rubes play by our repulsive and treasonous "leaders."

But check out the incredible bias in this AP "news" article about a law that actually aids and assists the cause of Transgenderism for Children.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- After signing two bills into law targeting transgender people over the past week, Tennessee's Gov. Bill Lee has approved legislation that bans gender-confirming treatment for young minors despite objections that the series of bills unfairly discriminate against an already vulnerable population.


I'm not even mad. This is amazing.

"Gender confirming treatment," the AP calls it -- in other words, we know this boy is actually a girl so we're just going to lop off his penis to "confirm" what is obviously true.

The move makes Tennessee just the second state in the United States to enact such a ban after Arkansas approved a similar version earlier this year over a veto from Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson.

Tennessee's version, which goes into effect immediately, is slightly different. Under the new law, doctors would be banned from providing gender-confirming hormone treatment to prepubescent minors. Arkansas' ban applies to anyone under the age of 18 and also specifically bans doctors from providing gender-confirming surgery.

This bill is actually Failure Theater to Con the Rubes -- it bans hormone therapy for prepubescent children, that, kids around, what, thirteen or younger?

That's the definition of "prepubescent:"

of, relating to, being in, or occurring in the period of development immediately preceding puberty

But gives the green flag to anyone who's merely started to go through puberty?

The very first Hair On Ball and it's time for the cancer-causing puberty blockers?

It's unclear how many will be affected by the new law. Advocates argue that no doctor in Tennessee is currently providing hormone therapy to youths before they enter puberty.

Probably only because very few children have thoughts about this kind of thing before the onset of puberty. I'm sure that even 9 year olds can get puberty blockers from the right butcher.

Note that this "news" article relies exclusively on the claims of activists -- "advocates argue" that no doctors are providing puberty blockers to the prepubescent.

What do the supporters of the bill say? Did AP even bother calling them?

Nah.

Meanwhile, the Endocrine Society also does not recommend offering puberty blockers or hormone treatments until children reach puberty.

So what's the problem? It's a bill designed to fool conservatives into thinking the Tennessee government is doing something -- and that's still too much for the rabid sexual left, as represented here by this AP "journalist."

The problem, it turns out, is how the bill makes "targeted" trans youth feel unsafe.

It doesn't actually do anything -- or at least nothing much. Even the AP concedes that medical authorities already recommend against giving puberty blockers to kids not even in puberty.

But it feels so icky!

However, with Lee signing off on the legislation, Tennessee continued its streak of being on the front lines of Republican statehouses across the country targeting the LGBTQ community through legislation. Only Texas has filed more anti-LGBTQ proposals this year than Tennessee.

Lee, who is up for reelection next year, quietly signed the measure on Tuesday without commenting on why he approved of the contentious legislation. Such bans have been opposed by several medical and child welfare groups, including the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Medical Association.

And have any groups supported them?

Again, AP doesn't want to tell you.

Which is strange for a "news" service.

But not strange at all for a rabidly-passionate advocacy organization.

Just a day earlier, the first-term Republican governor signed off on legislation that would require businesses and government facilities open to the public to post a sign if they let transgender people use multiperson bathrooms, locker rooms or changing rooms associated with their gender identity. The law, which goes into effect July 1, is the first of its kind to be signed.

In a statement, American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee Executive Director Hedy Weinberg said the group is "prepared to challenge" the bathroom sign requirement in court, and asked businesses affected by it to contact the organization.

The ACLU fights to impose "gender neutral" bathrooms on private businesses -- and then when Tennessee passes a bill stating that businesses that have "gender neutral" bathrooms must warn the public of this fact (or advertise this fact -- I mean, everyone loves this, right?), then businesses suddenly acquire a constitutional right to be free of government imposition.

Lee also signed legislation late last week that puts public schools and their districts at risk of losing civil lawsuits if they let transgender students or employees use multiperson bathrooms or locker rooms that do not reflect their sex at birth. It was the first bill restricting bathroom use by transgender people signed in any state in about five years, according to the Human Rights Campaign.

Well that is something.

But the ban on gender hormone therapy for only the youngest of kids?

That's nothing. That's typical Con the Rubes bullsh!t.

Speaking of typical Con the Rubes bullsh!t, Cowboy-Hat-Wearing, Gun-Holding governor Kristi Noem (you know she's a Real Conservative because, look at the hat and the gun!!!) has also signed into law some measures to curb the butchery of children.

Gov. Kristi Noem signed House Bill 1080 into law Monday, prohibiting several forms of gender-affirming care for minors.

"Care."

The bill prohibits several forms of bottom surgery, prohibits the potential for top surgery for those assigned female at birth and prohibits hormone therapy and puberty blockers.

Note that the media again euphemizes -- the bill specifically forbids cutting off the penis of boys, and sealing the vagina and creating a fake penis made from skin from the arm or thigh for girls. They call this "top or bottom surgery," which is the cutesy euphemism that the butchers have created to hide the horrors.

That sounds like a pretty good law -- unlike Tennessee's fake "prohibition." Kristi Noem might have learned her lesson. Last time she tried to Con the Rubes when she refused to sign a bill protecting girls sports for girls, claiming that she just didn't want to create a "boon for lawyers" or whatever bullsh!t excuse she gave.

This is the farthest any healthcare ban has gone for transgender individuals in the state in the last five years, and will have several implications for gender-diverse children, their parents, medical providers and the LGBTQ+ community at-large.


Noem signed this bill with little media notice and without any press conference or media event as she held when she signed House Bill 1217, which limited transgender students' participation in sports, into law last year.

Again, dodging the media.

Do they think that parents want this crap being pushed on their kids? Do they wholly live in the leftwing media bubble?

Here's what the law does:

The new law prohibits health care professionals from providing the following forms of care for patients under 18 who want to alter the appearance of, or validate their perception of, their gender if it doesn't match their sex assigned at birth:

Any drug to delay or stop puberty;

Testosterone, estrogen or progesterone, "in amounts greater than would normally be produced endogenously in a healthy individual of the same age and sex;"

Performing "any sterilizing surgery, including castration, hysterectomy, oophorectomy, orchiectomy, penectomy and vasectomy;"

Performing "any surgery that artificially constructs tissue having the appearance of genitalia differing from the minor's sex [assigned at birth] including metoidioplasty, phalloplasty and vaginoplasty;" or,

Removing "any healthy or non-diseased body part or tissue."

Any minors taking prescriptions or being administered drugs or hormones prohibited by this new law will have to stop taking those prescriptions, drugs or hormones by Dec. 31, 2023.

...

This law doesn't apply to minors born with a medically verifiable disorder of sex development, diagnosed with a disorder of sexual development, or minors needing treatment for an infection, injury, disease or disorder that's been caused or exacerbated by gender-affirming care.

Noem said in a statement that the bill protects kids from "harmful, permanent medical procedures."
