The Political War on Trans People

Anti-trans advocates are using tactics from the anti-abortion playbook.

Anti-trans advocates want to punish trans people for existing. To make life more difficult for trans kids. It’s pure cruelty for cruelty’s sake.

From the hundreds of anti-trans bills being introduced in state legislatures and an ongoing fearmongering campaign by legacy media that refuses to temper their anti-trans coverage with some coverage from actual trans journalists to the right-wing extremism attempting to “ban transgenderism,” Jess and Imani have a frank conversation on the attempts to eradicate LGBTQ people from society.
