Supreme Court Decision on Texas Oppression Law

The Supreme Court of the United States decided not to block Texas from oppressing its citizens as the case goes through the courts. It’s pretty disheartening and there have been lots of frustration and anger and sadness online. Here’s a link to the decision: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/20pdf/21a24_8759.pdf

Justices Kagan and Sotomayor make great points in their dissent. Excerpt from NPR.

In my opinion, the Supreme Court needs to be reformed, since it was unethically packed by Trump/GOP leadership in order to reverse the precedent of Roe v. Wade which protected the right to have an abortion. It should be expanded, or disbanded and new Justices appointed. Kavanaugh should be dismissed at the very least.

I think Texas is shameful and unamerican for doing this, and I hope the good people of Texas rise up against their oppressors.

Just my 2 cents.

Twitter’s Anti-Trans Problem

Just as with racists, homophobes, and other bigots, Twitter is littered with accounts that voice anti-trans propaganda. I encounter them from time to time, whenever JK Rowling makes another pro-TERF tweet, or if a celebrity posts something in support of trans people. The comments are riddled with “Trans women are men” and it’s variations, as well as the old “it’s a mental illness” bullshit, which I fight against wholeheartedly. And I report their accounts as well as their tweets. And every once in a while, twitter will lock trans accounts(and trans ally accounts) for standing up to these bigots, in essence twitter defends anti-trans bigotry. That is Twitter’s anti-trans problem. And they’re probably not going to try to fix it.
