Anti-Drag Law, the Police, and Trans Political Imagination
Your writing here and interventions on Death Panel have been essential in helping me better understand the precise aims of current anti-trans legislation and how they will likely be enforced, how policing of class is at their core, and the limitations of certain strategies to challenge this raft of bills.
I also want for you to help us keep declaring again and again, loudly and unapologetically:
So what if we actually ARE increasing the number of trans children and adults in absolute numbers? So what if the proportion of the population that is "gender non-conforming" reaches 100%, whether on a full-, part-, or one-time basis?
Why the fuck wouldn't we groom a generation to feel safe and loved and complete, not merely tolerated or rescued from depression, targeted violence, and deeply circumscribed labor options?
Thank you for the clarity, humor, and humanity of what you share.
