“And by the way, I’m from Texas, born in Texas, and this is happening in Texas. I also couldn’t sue because my statute of limitations ran out.”

Democrats on a Texas House committee walked out of the room during a hearing this week, missing testimony from a detransitioner on the harmful effects of gender mutilation procedures on minors.
The Texas House Committee on the Judiciary & Civil Jurisprudence heard public testimony on a measure that would extend the statute of limitations for minors who have undergone “gender transition” procedures.
Deep state bureaucrats, ideology-driven medical practitioners, and lawfare coalitions have set themselves against the grassroots movement to protect children from gender mutilation and hormone manipulation. With scientific research sounding alarms about the risks these abusive medical procedures pose, subject matter specialists offer clear policies to help kids be kids.
In our investigative series on this subject, Texas Scorecard has reviewed and reported scientific research pointing out the dangerous side effects and permanent consequences of gender mutilation and hormone manipulation. These alarms escalated after efforts in the Western world to expand the target range for these abusive medical procedures from adults only to children as well.
At a showing for the new documentary “Trans Wreck,” State Rep. Briscoe Cain (R-Deer Park) advised parents in the audience to let the school districts know they’re watching because “we’ve been too quiet for too long.”
In an hour and fifteen minutes, “Trans Wreck” takes the audience through the hazards of the malignant gender ideologies sweeping through the youngest generation via public schools and social media.
In recent years there has been a sudden and dramatic rise in the number of children being referred to gender clinics for gender dysphoria—the experience of distress caused by a perceived mismatch between one’s biological sex and “gender identity.” This is likely due to the equally sudden rise of a radical new ideology—gender ideology—which is a set of beliefs asserting that whether someone is a man/boy or woman/girl is entirely rooted in one’s subjective “gender identity” as opposed to one’s objective biological sex. In practice, “gender identity” reflects an individual’s affinity to, or rejection of, masculine and/or feminine stereotypes.
