"Conservative" Governor Asa Hutchinson Vetoes Bill That Would Have Blocked Children from Transgender Surgical Mutilation
— Ace

Behold, your Blessings of Liberty Neocon/Neoliberal Corporate Shill Party. 

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KAIT) - Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson vetoed House Bill 1570, which would have banned gender confirming treatments for minors. 

Until Monday, Hutchinson had to either sign the bill into law, not sign it and allow it to become law, or veto the bill.

"This is a government overreach. You are starting to let lawmakers interfere with healthcare and set a standard for legislation overriding healthcare,” Hutchinson said in a Monday news conference. "The state should not presume to jump into every ethical health decision.”

Hutchinson left the door open for the bill to be changed, "If this was just to ban gender reassignment then I would support it, but those who are taking treatment are not grandfathered in, this is not the right path to put them on.”

"While the population of minors dealing with this is an extreme minority, this could lead to significant harms from suicide to drug use to isolation,” Hutchinson said.


Trans people are forever threatening to kill themselves if they don't get their way. This means that we have to let ideological-zealot transgender doctors cut off little boys' penises?

Hutchinson says the bill was overbroad, restricted people’s decisions, and <b>sent a message about Arkansas that he did not want to send. 

As far as any economic impacts to the state if he had signed the bill, Hutchinson said there was very little expressed.</b>


Bullshit. The "message" he didn't want to send is that sometimes the people of Arkansas may choose different policies than the Chamber of Commerce, AEI, Facebook and Google desire.

And neocons can't have that.

That ringing you heat is the Arkansas Gov. @AsaHutchinson
moronic veto, sounding the death knell of "limited-government" conservatism: If "conservatism" can't defend kids against mutilation, it needs to die. And it will die.

This is how I've felt about federalism, limited-government, and free-trade arguments for a long time now. I never get any of these - federalism or limited government or free trade - even when the GOP is in the saddle, but I'm supposed to keep treating these like fetishes that disallow my policy preferences from ever being enacted in any way while allowing all the Left's. No thanks. And by no thanks, I mean FOAD.

One of the outside experts charged with helping rename military sites currently honoring Confederate leaders on Sunday blasted the Confederate flag as a symbol of "treason” and said America should stop venerating individuals who "fought against this country to support and create a slave society.”

Ty Seidule, former head of the history department at the U.S. Military Academy and an appointee to the Defense Department’s Confederate Base Naming Commission, said in an interview with ABC’s This Week on Sunday that the panel’s work is important so that all Americans can better understand the myths of nobility and romanticism around the Confederacy and its leaders’ goals.

Yeah, but no one wants to be the first to charge the nutjob with a gun, even if there are more of you than he has bullets. And there's always the risk that once one or two states tries to stand up to the NCAA, the others will switch sides in order to get some of that sweet sweet cash.

Yep - right there.  It's a movement that always - at the critical moment - finds the hill not suitable to die on.  Honestly - and look, I hate government in all it's forms - but if you can't set a rule about cutting dicks off and turning Johnny into Jane - fuck it.  Fuck those that support that line of thinking.  We're not exactly talking about beer on Sunday here.

32 Again, details might be important here?  Even the quote used said "gender reassignment" was a legit target of the law.  Does the law cover non-minors?  I don't get the issue here.  Based just on what's in ace's post.

If it's only about minors, then how is there any issue of guvamint intrusion in health decisions?
Separately - and FFS, *especially* in 2021, WTF is the relevance or seriousness of "limiting" govt. interference in health care?  Umm - about 20 years too late?

It doesn't seem overbroad and it takes medically intersex people into consideration.  It also clearly delineates gender from sex, which seems to be necessary now.

They're going to eventually argue that 13-year old Johnny is capable of making all body autonomy decisions, such as gender reassignment surgery, smoking weed, taking poppers, having sex with a 40 year old man, and eventually doctor assisted suicide when the pain of his life becomes unbearable.
No operating a motor vehicle, however, because cars are the debbil.

Uh, Alex, that is the law,  for a parental consent law for abortion to be constitutional, there has to be a judicial bypass option where a yute can go to court and get approval of an abortion without parental involvement or consent if the court finds them mature enough to consent themselves to the operation.

Welcome to our current world.  Virginia, which was Democrat for 120 years before it was Republicanish for 20 before it was Democrat again - has the most crazily liberal laws on this.  A minor OF ANY AGE - yes, that could include a toddler - is to be considered an adult for medical purposes if the treatment is for mental health, drugs, STD, or abortion.  
That stuff was put into law before the Republican interregnum.  Notice it was not rolled back.  Even a little bit.

89 I think there is an element of Legal Mentality at work here. 
I have noticed that lawyers often think they are very smart, but also are very easily persuaded with a string of logic that leads them to nonsense. 
Their intelligence is good at argument and logic, and they are honed at understanding written and case law and finding a way to make it mean what they want it to mean. 
Reagan was such a breath of fresh air because he did not have that mentality, and he had a grounding in principles and morality. He understood instinctively the difference between good and evil.
[Trump was not quite there. He had good instincts, but I think he was also susceptible to being bedazzled by the process and what he was told regarding the way things are done. ]
But many "conservatives" have no grounding. Tell them it is a "medical procedure," and that it violates conservatives goal of small gov. and interfering with a medical decision, and they figure that it is a pretty good argument. It's not that they are RINOs, they are not even that. They are nothing. they have no principles, can not tell good from evil, and can be argued into anything if it is in their interests politically, financially, or socially.

I watched the Dr. Ryan Cole presentation on Covid.  It was on YouTube (with those YT warnings about Covid misinformation) and I was shocked that the video is still up, nearly all the comments are positive, I could only find one(poorly argued) rebuttal, and the comments for the rebuttal were all negative regarding the rebutt-er's arguments and supportive of Dr. Cole.
I feel like I've been sequestered in an internet ghetto with people who think like me.  If I weren't being confined to a ghetto, I would expect to see more sheep and narrative-pushers commenting.

They found that something like 40% of post op people killed themselves anyway IIRC. Not just attempted, succeeded (which leaves a wide area for those still unhappy not with major scars or a need to constantly scrape at their new "genitals" least the gash close for Male to Female) and decided that the surgery wasn't actually treating anything, so they weren't going to participate anymore.

177 'My neighbor across the street just rang everyone's doorbells and told them to come to her house and witness her leaving. '
I imagine she has left many times in the past and when she threatened her hubby said "yeah right, like this time is any different." So she tried to make it more serious by adding witnesses. I guess it beats the usual option of aggravated assault and property destruction.

Looking back Reagan's incredible political capital should have been used to fight the real enemy within that was the American Left that we now see in it's ascendancy.

The press are not going to be able to control this political arm they think they've corralled forever, they'll break free and do what profits them as sure as Huggy Bear pimped whatever prostitute sold at the moment.

263 Tami, wounds want to heal and this reassignment "surgery" on guys is nothing more than a gaping wound that wants to heal. I don't think these people have to scratch at it to keep it open, I think they use a device normally reserved for female pleasure to keep the wound open.

I think Ace or a Cob posted something from twatter a few weeks back - some gal who's "husband" was now her "wife" and transitioning - was post op and the shit he was making her do to keep the hole open, pleasure him etc. went way beyond domestic abuse. It was absolutely gag inducing. Maybe somebody here remembers where to find it - but trust me, it's better unseen.

300 I'm going to disagree about Thomas. It's hard being the one who actually applies the constitution, on a regular basis, and, therefore, goes against the crowd.
The man is not liked by the left, at all. Heck, he isn't like by the Deep State, but, since he's one voice, the Deep State doesn't care.
It would be a lot easier for Thomas to go along to get along, but, instead, he chooses to remain as faithful to the constitution as he can. For this, he is routinely maligned.
