The Texas Saga Continues

By Sara Beth Johnson

Two weeks ago, a judge in Texas put a stop to the investigation of a family whose child was receiving trans-affirming care.  This did not stop child protective services from knocking on the doors of other families in Texas who have trans-teens.  Trans-affirming care is not child abuse, but more families are facing persecution from a state government that has no business in how parents raise their children.   

In a report by the Huffington Post, several families in Texas reported that inquiries into their child’s gender dysphoria treatment was pursued by people from child protective services.  Some folks didn’t answer the door because they knew authorities probes where witch hunts. 

These attacks on families of trans-children must not go on and advocates like us will keep pointing out government failures in protecting all youth.
