Gender pronoun chart (trans website)A state representative is pushing back against the transgender movement and its "pronoun police." 

Arizona state Rep. John Fillmore, vice-chairman of the House Education Committee, proposed House Bill 2082 which would require public school staff and teachers to use students’ pronouns that correspond to the sex listed on their birth certificates.

The legislation marks a public attempt to push back on the transgender-rights movement, which has enjoyed an amazing run in public schools thanks in part to compliant schools and sympathetic media.

Harvey

Linda Harvey of Mission America, who has witnessed the transgender push in recent years, says the movement ignores reality and demands the public do the same.

“This is very harmful and destructive,” says Harvey, “to individuals and to our society."

Opponents of the transgender movement are routinely called “transphobic” for criticizing their demands, and meanwhile the suicide rate is a whopping 40 percent while claiming mental illness is not an issue but intolerance is.

On school campuses in particular, transgender girls – biological boys – are now enjoying access to girls’ locker rooms, competing against biological girls in sports, and demanding that teachers and coaches refer to them by their preferred pronouns or risk getting fired for their intolerance. 

"We have many, many situations around the country in schools where kids are being deceived routinely,” Harvey warns. “And the children of Arizona, like those in every other state, would be so much better off if adults will just tell them the truth."
