Texas bill to ban transgender students from sports heard again

We get the message Texas Republicans.

Governor Greg Abbott failed to get a bill to exclude transgender students from sports passed during the regular session and and failed to do so again during the first 'special session'. So having nothing better to do as the pandemic rages he tried again by making it a top priority during the second special session.

After a hearing that began at 10:30am and lasted until 6 am chair Dutton adjourned the hearing without a vote and left SB 2 pending.

Planet Trans would have like to attend the hearing but her community abandoned her when she was forced to retire due to covid and couldn't pay for the site anymore.

That and Equality Texas refused to acknowledge her existence, even committing acts of microaggression against her.

They fought well for the trans community that they felt worth fighting for which is better than nothing I suppose.

The future of SB 2 is unknown. A similar bill was heard in the same House committee chaired by Dutton during the regular session that ended by Dutton saying that a vote wouldn't be taken.

Later during the regular session, Dutton used transgender children as a tool of revenge against fellow democrats and passed it anyway.
