Trans Lives Matter insurgents descended on the Oklahoma Capitol building yesterday, demonstrating inside the interior rotunda,to protest new bills banning sex changes for young people.
The common sense bills seek to ban life altering treatments for anyone under the age of 26 by holding doctors responsible if they provide those services.
I guess it’s not an insurrection if Trans Lives Matter takes over and occupies the Oklahoma capital… apparently the best part of equality is not having to abide by the same rules as others. pic.twitter.com/8BcflEKjDX

The interruption was spurned on by the the groups anger over Republican Governor Kevin Stitt’s proposed collection of new legislation.
Militant #trans activists occupied Oklahoma Capitol on Monday to try to stop conservative lawmakers from passing bills banning the transitioning of children in the state, as well as restrictions on teachers hiding trans identity of students from parents.pic.twitter.com/QrUheoobQO

The protesters called the legislation ‘genocide’.
Trans Lives Matter carried out an insurrection at the Oklahoma Capitol Building yesterday and everybody just went on with their lives. No 24/7 national media coverage. No statement from the FBI. No demands for justice and accountability from Democrats.
Nothing. Just silence.

Even claiming that it will drive youth to suicide.
Trans activists stormed the Oklahoma state capital to defend their right to castrate, sterilize, and mutilate children. This is not only an insurrection but easily the most bizarre and disgusting one in history.

But Governor Stitt later doubled down in his State of the State address.
According to Daily Mail he said:
“We must protect our most vulnerable – our children. After all minors can’t vote, can’t purchase alcohol, can’t purchase cigarettes…we shouldn’t allow a minor to get a permanent gender altering surgery in Oklahoma.
That’s why I am calling on the Legislature to send me a bill that bans all gender transition surgeries and hormone therapies on minors in the state!
As governor, I will never shy away from calling out right from wrong.
I will not be intimidated by partisan interest groups or make decisions based on groupthink.
I will continue my responsibility to lead, not follow.
I ran for this office five years ago because I was tired of seeing other states succeed while ours got left behind.”
The bill is based on often cited research claiming a person’s brain doesn’t stop fully developing until 25.
Oklahoma is currently proposing some of the strictest transgender legislation in the country.
