Wow, the incredible tolerance and love his son showed by allowing him to attend is impressive. I don’t know if I could be so forgiving in a similar situation.

The dad’s speech at the wedding.

“As they grow and as they get a little older, we also hope and pray they’re going to find that one true love so that they have the opportunity to experience that: Someone to grow old with,” Thompson said.

“We love it when they find their one true love, especially when they become a part of our families then,” he added.

I wouldn't want to live in Florida if I were LGBTQ.

Would you want to live there if you weren't?

been there, done that, not doing it again. Unless you are in Miami, you are basically living in Alabama.

They hate libraries and public schools. They want the people dumb, scared, and angry.
They want the public dumb and ignorant, thus easier to manipulate...

Like most places in America, rural Michigan is extremely extremist and full of hate and fear of anything different/new/unique from the lived experience of the people that have only lived in rural America.

I sure wouldn't want to do that in these Michiganders Indy describes above. I can imagine it though. A lot of ignorance and fear.

Any of you heard of this site, KiwiFarms? It's a new toxic online community site, kind of like 4chan or 8chan. They tend to harass and dox trans people. May be worth reading this thread.

The mother of a transgender boy says her 13-year-old son was removed from class and questioned without a parent present by a Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) investigator on Aug. 30.

In a letter filed in court late Wednesday, Carol Koe, using a pseudonym, said the DFPS investigator questioned her son in a school conference room about "his most intimate thoughts, his family, his diagnosis" and "she asked him if he was taking any 'performance enhancing drugs.'
The interview lasted nearly an hour, the mother said in her declaration to the court.

The filing is part of a new batch of evidence filed in an ongoing lawsuit by LGBTQ+ advocates asking the court to block Gov. Greg Abbott's order requiring DFPS to investigate families of transgender youth for providing gender-affirming care.

Koe told the court the DFPS investigator said she "was being investigated for 'child abuse' for seeking testosterone treatment" for her son "and that it was 'illegal' to do so."

During the 2021 legislative session, Texas lawmakers failed to pass bills restricting gender-affirming care.

The declaration shows DFPS continues to pursue child abuse investigations into parents who provide gender-affirming care to transgender children despite ongoing litigation to block the inquiries.
