I have never been one to subscribe to conspiracy theories but the older I get, I raise an eyebrow or two. When important decisions that effect the country in very critical ways come to a decisive point, sub issues seem to appear.
We have had the plight of other countries inserted into news coverage then vanish (Do "we" still not want refugees?), diseases come and go (Are we still wearing masks on planes?) and been on the brink of martial law (Have cops stopped killing folks on camera?) in an attempt to steer us into highly emotional states. Enter the Transgender bathroom FEAR!

How about we protect our children by giving them the tools to understand humanity.
Teach them to know, appreciate and defend their bodies, have compassion for people that have plights we may never experience, give them a voice and the ear to speak when something feels wrong without intertwining it with discrimination and bigotry.
Fear of the unknown is natural as an initial emotion but learn to move past it and be open to understanding. You will always have people that will take advantage of laws or regulation (Ever watch American Greed?) ... Don't miss an opportunity to give a human being a sense of dignity and acceptance.
