Gov. Abbott promises to "end" transgender and non-binary people living in Texas

Greg Abbott on X

Listen to a recording of Texas.Gov. Greg Abbott tell a convention of young conservatives he wants to end gender nonconforming and transgender people living in "his state".

Abbott then segways as an example to the recent bullying of a teacher in north Texas. Rachmad Tjachyadi was suspended and eventually resigned after being targeted by anti-LGBTQI influencer Chaya Raichik. She posted a continuous loop of Tjachyadi wearing a red dress on Spirit Day which has over 5 million views on X.

Opinion: Abbott this isn't "your state" to rule by decree. He was speaking for himself, as proof, to wit, a petition to reinstate this beloved teacher presently has over 20,000 signatures.

In the recording, Abbott repeatedly said that he did not know if Rachmad Tjachyadi is transgender or nonbinary or if Tjachyadi talked about those topics in the classroom.  He indicated in that recording he just hates everyone who is, or anyone he suspects is, and he will "end that behavior."

The firing of Rachmad Tjachyadi violates the new Title 9 rules just announced by the Biden administration. The new rules explicitly protect LGBTQI people for the first time and will go into effect in August 2024.

The Supreme Court ruled in 2020 that Civil Rights Law Protects Gay and Transgender Workers, as reported by the NY Times. The court said the language of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits sex discrimination, applies to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Trigger Warning. Chaya Raichik posts on X as Libs of Tic Toc. She is an anti goverment and anti-LGBTQI extremist who is possibly connected to dozens of high school and children's hospital bomb threats.
