2549 - How GOP-Controlled State Legislatures are Enacting Anti-Transgender Legislation w/ Chase Strangio
Sam and Emma host ACLU Deputy Director for Transgender Justice Chase Strangio to discuss the anti-trans legislation make its way across GOP-controlled statehouses across America. We're live at noon ET.
Sam and Emma begin with discussing the Biden administration's immigration policy at the border and react to Dan Crenshaw’s interview with Mehdi Hassan. Then, Sam and Emma host ACLU Deputy Director for Transgender Justice Chase Strangio to discuss the increase in anti-trans legislation that has made its way across GOP-controlled statehouses. Chase explains how the current wave of anti-trans legislation in girls sports is the new manifestation of the same kind of GOP generated transphobic panic that informed the restroom bills in 2016-17 and is used to drive up Republican voter turnout. And further, Chase discusses the current legal precedent set by Bostock v Clayton County that protects trans rights, which GOP state legislatures actively disregard. Finally, Sam and Emma discuss Glenn Greenwald’s “oppression ladder” in the LBGTQ community.
