The attractive state of Montana isn’t often featured very prominently within the information (or in my cartoons, for that matter). Sadly, it must be getting way more consideration now given the outrageous, anti-democratic moves of the Republican-controlled legislature.
Montana is likely one of the newest states to move anti-transgender laws, nevertheless it doesn’t cease there. Because the Home was debating SB 99, which might ban gender-affirming take care of minors, state Rep. Zooey Zephyr gave a transferring and pointed speech opposing the invoice.
As she criticized Republicans who supported the laws, Montana’s first transgender lawmaker mentioned, “I hope the following time there’s an invocation, once you bow your heads in prayer, you see the blood in your arms.”
The quick model of what adopted is that Zephyr was silenced and banned from the House floor.
I can’t resolve whether or not these Republicans are extraordinarily thin-skinned or autocratic . . . likelihood is, they’re each.
