Ten laws impacting LGBTQ+ rights set to take effect today

  • Ten laws restricting how LGBTQ+ people – particularly LGBTQ+ youth – are able to participate in school sports or spoken about in the classroom will take effect today.

    Alabama House Bill 322
    In April, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed into law a bill preventing transgender students from using facilities like restrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity. An amendment to the law also bars kindergarten through fifth grade educators from engaging in classroom instruction related to sɛҳuąƖ orientation and gender identity in a manner that is not “age appropriate or developmentally appropriate.”

    Florida House Bill 1557
    One of the most highly publicized measures of the year, Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law – dubbed by its critics as the “Don’t Say gαy” law –  will prevent public primary school teachers from engaging in classroom instruction related to sɛҳuąƖ orientation or gender identity.
    Public school educators through high school will be prohibited from addressing either topic with their students in a manner that is not “age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate.” Parents will also be given greater authority to take legal action against school districts they believe to be in violation of the law.

    Florida House Bill 7
    Florida’s Individual Freedom Act prevents workplaces and schools in the state from requiring training or instruction that may make some people feel they bear “personal responsibility” for historic wrongdoings because of their “race, color, sex or national origin.”
    The measure has also been called the “Stop WOKE Act” by the state’s Republican governor Ron DeSantis, where woke is used as an acronym for “Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees.”

    Indiana House Bill 1041
    The now-law prevents transgender women and girls through high school from competing on sports teams consistent with their gender identity.
    Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb, a Republican, in March vetoed the measure, writing in a letter that he believes the bill does not solve a problem that exists in Indiana. The state legislature later voted to override the governor’s veto.

    South Dakota Senate Bill 46
    In February, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) signed into law the year’s first transgender athlete ban.
    Under the law, transgender women and girls through high school are barred from playing on sports teams that match with their gender identity. Students and schools that “suffer any direct or indirect harm” from the law being violated are permitted to take legal action.


    South Dakota House Bill 1012
    Much like Florida’s “Stop WOKE Act,” this new South Dakota law was designed to “protect students and employees at institutions of higher education from divisive concepts” related to race, color, religion, sex, ethnicity or national origin.
    Under the measure, colleges and universities are not restricted in their ability to teach certain courses or subject matter, but “forced” or “compelled” speech in college orientations or trainings is prohibited.

    Tennessee House Bill 1895
    In April, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) signed into law a measure to pull funding from state schools that allow transgender students to play on sports teams consistent with their gender identity, doubling down on an existing Tennessee law which already bars transgender athletes from playing on sports teams inconsistent with their sex assigned at birth.
    The new law requires Tennessee’s education commissioner to “withhold a portion of the state education finance funds” from local school districts that fail or refuse to determine a student-athlete’s gender using the student’s “original” birth certificate.

    Tennessee Senate Bill 2153
    In May, Lee signed an additional law prohibiting “males from participating in public higher education sports that are designated for females.” The legislation requires Tennessee colleges to determine a student-athlete’s gender using the student’s “original” birth certificate.
    Under the law, any government entity, organization or athletic association is barred from taking “an adverse action” against a school that complies with the law or a student who reports a violation. 
    If evidence of a violation is found which “deprives a student of an athletic opportunity or causes direct or indirect harm to the student,” the affected student will have a private cause of action for injunctive relief, damages and “any other relief available under law.”

    Tennessee House Bill 2454
    This law expands an existing requirement that internet vendors block “obscenity and pornography” on school computers. Previously, an exception to the law was education material. That is no longer the case.
    LGBTQ+ advocates worry the law will be used to restrict access to resources about LGBTQ+ issues and identities, which Tennessee lawmakers have made clear they believe are inappropriate for children.

    Utah House Bill 11
    The new Utah law bars transgender women and girls from competing on sports teams that match their gender identity.
    Gov. Spencer Cox (R) vetoed the measure, which requires school sports teams be determined by the players’ sex assigned at birth, in March.
    “Rarely has so much fear and anger been directed at so few. I don’t understand what they are going through or why they feel the way they do. But I want them to live,” Cox wrote in a veto letter at the time. “And all the research shows that even a little acceptance and connection can reduce suicidality significantly.”

  • Good momentum lately; given Clarence Thomas’s comments and desires, maybe they can keep it going?
    Disagreeing with Ladislaus is heretical and blasphemous!

    I keep thinking there has to be something sinister going on behind the scenes. 

    This one worries me:

    Yes, definitely. The Right is still largely unaware that there is a war on, and that the enemy wants us and our children dead or enslaved. Let's still enjoy these minor victories and steel ourselves for what's ahead. Whatever happens, our Lord can still end it at any time, but we can't allow ourselves to be demoralized into uselessness before then.

    Indeed.

    But I find it is becoming more and more difficult.

  • We should recognize the propaganda machines we are facing are the biggest and most sophisticated ever seen in known history. They are a serious force, an implacable enemy that hates Christ, the Church, and you. Managing our morale is an essential part of surviving the onslaught.

    If it helps, look at how many people are on just this forum. Many more still don't have an online presence. There are more of us than we know, and all over the world, too. Don't give up :smirk:

    Slate is far-left. Re-read the article. AZ wants legitimate elections and state control over their elections as guaranteed by the 10th Amendment. Given 2000 Mules and all the election "irregularites" that's a good thing.

  • And yet with all of those "irregularities" the Republicans snatched defeat from the jaws of victory and Jan 6 is still with us. Don't underestimate their ability to lose to the Democrats. We haven't seen this drama fully played out yet.

  • Trump missed his chance by declaring the Democrat Party a terrorist organization and making the Republican Party the sole legal party in the United States.

    In addition, he should've had everyone who voted to impeach him tried by military tribunal and put away for life for treason.

    He should've also:

    • Constitutional amendment to ban abortion
    • Constitutional amendment codifying traditional marriage
    • Constitutional amendment banning atheists, Jєωs, Muslims and Protestants from public office
    • Repealing the 1st, 15th, 19th and 22nd amendments
    Hold fast to the Holy Catholic faith -- never will God let a faithful soul falter.
