Anti-Trans Bill in North Carolina

68 so far! Let’s get to 100 signers!

it’s come to my attention that North Carolinian lawmakers are advocating for the passing of SB Bill 514, the deceivingly named “Youth Health Protection Act”. A clever misnomer to mask the outright stripping of personhood from so many trans youth. I am outraged with the lawmakers in North Carolina proposing the endangerment of trans people. By making it illegal to get the required treatment for gender dysphoria (blockers, HRT, etc.), you actively hurt innocent people who have the right to be their true selves. Transgender teens and adults suffering with gender dysphoria, the disconnect from the physical assigned gender at birth, causes great distress and increases depression and suicidal thoughts. Over half of today’s transgender youth have seriously considered suicide. Around 30% of transboys (assigned female at birth) & 42% of nonbinary youth have actively attempted to take their lives. This is the reality of trans teens who are forced to battle dysphoria every day without medical help or hope of transition. Not only that but requiring adults such as guidance counselors to alert parents of a teen’s gender identity without their consent puts many closeted trans youth in danger of mental, emotional, and physical abuse. The lives of these kids are in your hands. You must stop criminalizing queerness. Trans youth deserve rights because trans rights are human rights. Opposing SB Bill 514 is taking a stand for the rights of every trans youth to be respected and live happy safe lives. I urge you to stand AGAINST this murderous, illogical, and blatantly anti-equality bill.
