Legislators in several states are proposing bills to restrict transgender rights, with a focus on adults.

These bills aim to limit access to gender-affirming care, restrict bathroom use based on gender identity, and define sex in a way that could harm transgender individuals.

Ohio state Sen. Kristina Roegner said, “There is no such thing as gender-affirming care.”

“You can’t affirm something that doesn’t exist,” added the lawmaker.

The push for these laws reflects a broader trend of conservative efforts to limit LGBTQ+ rights.

Transgender individuals, like Charlie Adams, are facing challenges and fear the impact of these restrictive measures on their lives and well-being.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said, “Just like we did with girls’ sports, this bill protects women’s spaces and rights afforded to us by Iowa law and the constitution.”

Cam Ogden, who co-runs Trans Allies of Ohio, said, “The General Assembly hasn’t exactly been passing legislation to protect trans people the last few years.”

“If the data is intended to help the legislature, the only way it can is to help them attack us further,” Ogden continued.

Logan Casey, a senior researcher at the Movement Advancement Project, said, “We’re under attack across virtually every aspect of our lives, and each new day is bringing with it some new escalation.”

The bills signal a significant shift in the political landscape regarding transgender rights, with potential far-reaching consequences for the community.
