Protect Trans Youth | Episode 284 (April 2, 2021)

The Humanist Report

April 4th 2021

In this episode we’ll cover a number of issues, but we’ll first examine the wave of bills popping up across the country that aim to criminalize healthcare provided to transgender and non-binary youth. Gender-affirming care is medically necessary and life-saving, yet Republicans are trying to criminalize the existence of young trans people under the guise of “protecting” them. We’ll talk about that along with the country’s ongoing stupidity with regard to COVID-19, the conservative hysteria over Lil Nas X’s new music video and shoes, and Georgia’s new Jim Crow law. Finally, we’ll close the show by talking to Real Progressives’ Steve Grumbine about the fundamentals of modern monetary theory.
