If you hare a "duty to report" in Texas, Texas is officially saying that you have to report trans youth to family and protective services or risk losing your job.

Unsurprisingly, Texas cites Tavistock vs Bell, the UK case that was later OVERTURNED that banned youth from transition care in the UK for a short time.

If you are in Texas, the safest nearby state to go to is likely going to be Colorado and New Mexico. If you are a parent with a trans kid and are looking to escape these issues from ever popping up again in your life, any state in dark green is best.

When we say that there is a trans genocide going on, this is what we are talking about. It's been slowly bubbling and percolating to the surface, and in the enclaves of anti-trans governments, they are deciding now is their time to act.

I am heartened by the massive number of influential cis people sharing this break-glass moment against trans rights. But I am also a little upset, because this has been 3 years in the making and we've been BEGGING cis people to come to our aid and signal boost this stuff.

If you are cis, and surprised by this, ask yourself why. And then promptly go ahead and start following the accounts that will let you NOT be surprised next time. There are MANY more states planning this. @chasestrangio @Esqueer_ @GBBranstetter @PinkRangerLB @StepUp4Trans

Thank you for all of your messages, offerings of help, organizing, etc. I need to step away for a few hours. I am still recovering from surgery and I need to ensure that I have enough spoons to continue fighting on. I will read the rest of my messages later today.

If you need immediate legal help, your best bets are the following... I can't promise they will help, but I have been told that they are aware and currently organizing help: Lambda Legal: lambdalegal.org/helpdesk ACLU of Texas: intake.aclutx.org

Enforcement has officially begun. A CPS worker with a 16 year old trans teenager is the first to be investigated.
“Among the first to be investigated ie a state protective services employee whose transgender child is 16” They have started the process to try to take transgender kids from their parents in Texas. They are actually doing it. This is unconscionable. nytimes.com/2022/03/01/us/te…
