This is a great piece, I'm terrified of what comes next for us. Almost no one else seems to give a flying fuck what is coming

I got my school counseling degree about 18 months ago. I'm already out of the field. Living in a red state, it's genuinely not possible for those of us who very decidedly do not pass to get started. Some still try, they're braver than I am.

A friend of a friend was just fired from her 27-year career for advocating for a trans student, and she was a cis woman with all those years of experience and community involvement.

I genuinely do not know what to do.

It's really quite dark how openly hateful Conservative forums have become, and screaming their hate out in public has become almost a duty.

They also obsess over free speech while banning all dissenting voices at a speed that would make Putin proud.

I'm sorry Parker. I don't even know what to say anymore. The right has gone nuts, the media is helping them, and the public seems to be tired of having to pay attention.

I'm so tired and so sorry this happens over and over and over again. I wish people could see that individual liberation is bound with communal liberation and that it is all of our responsibility to counter this in every way we can. I ... just don't know how to counter it when it seems no one wants to listen.

I just have one teensy bit of concern here.

What effects do taking testosterone have on a developing embryo/fetus?
