“Among those 271 testimonies against SB6 were the many stories of transgender people, parents of trans kids, spouses of trans people, and people whose appearance does not conform to society’s gender norms” Many of those who testified were INTERSEX. INTERSEX. Not just “people whose appearance does not conform to society’s gender norms.” They spoke about the non-consensual surgeries performed for cosmetic purposes on intersex babies and children; people who biologically are not male OR female and often appear Trans to many, and suffer from the same societal judgment in public spaces. You have continued the societal practice of erasing intersex people hopefully without intending to.
