The Trump Administration threw another gut punch the other day with an announcement that it’s now moving toward defining gender as “immutable” and defined at birth by genitalia. While we suspect that Trump’s understanding of transgender issues is something like “dislike because Obama”, unfortunately he has a whole cabal of people in his bureaucracy that are malicious and clever enough to figure out how to write their personal contempt into law. You DGB for today is to respond to this by channeling your rage into the upcoming midterms. Or more particularly, channel your specific outrage to this specific nonsense by specifically supporting a transgender candidate. Let’s put people in power that are living this experience. Logan Casey, a political scientist, has done the work of gathering a list of transgender candidates. Go to this link, find someone, and donate, follow and/or volunteer for their campaign. The list is on the left side of the page, candidates still in play are in green.
