last time things like this happened in history, those within the LGBTQ+ community were forced to wear pink triangles and Jews were forced to wear yellow stars. This is not hyperbole, look at what's happening around you. History is repeating itself as we look on disguised as (2/3)

In his closing, Rep. Stubblefield quoted a verse from Deuteronomy and just said he believes any man that dresses as a woman or any woman that dresses as a man is “an abomination”. So it’s not about “protecting children”. SB43 passes unanimously of out committee.

"But the fact remains that the origins of the current pedophilia panic being used to attack the LGBTQ+ community now, and the drag and trans communities in particular, originated with Q Anon and remains central to the conspiracy theory."
