Last week Erin in the Morn previewed Kentucky HB 470, which Frankensteined every anti-trans bill in the country into one omnibus punch the trans people bill. In addition to all the rest of it, it bars mental health counselors from "affirming 'sex specific behaviors that vary from those typically associated with a person’s sex.' It then states that mental health counselors are banned from any of this and by doing so, they could lose their licenses."
[ Update: Arevised version of the bill that passed the state House yesterday stripped out the provision banning social transition services and threatening mental health providers. The rest of the bill is as terrible as ever, as far as we can tell — Dok Zoom ]
This was the scene in Kentucky yestertoday:
