  • Toronto Centre NDP MPP Kristyn Wong-Tam tables a bill which, if passed, will increase provincial health coverage to include “chest contouring,” “facial feminization,” and electrolysis. “It allows for life-saving procedures,” says Wong-Tam. “It’s not a nice-to-have, as some people would like to say, but rather a must-have.”
  • Marissa Darlingh, a former school counselor at Allen-Field Elementary School in the Milwaukee Public School District (MPS), has filed a federal lawsuit against MPS employees after she was fired for speaking out against gender identity ideology. Darlingh said:

“As a private citizen, I have the right to express my views concerning gender ideology on my own time, and identifying myself as a school counselor doesn’t negate that right. My speech had little to no impact on my students, their educational experience or our therapeutic relationship. The basis of my unscripted speech stemmed from my desire to protect children.”

  • Republican lawmakers in Texas are filing bills that would expand the definition of child abuse, increasing penalties for medical professionals who transition children.
