It's getting hard to keep track of the legal wins
L.W. v. Skrmetti and P.D.E. v. Linn Mar Community School District

This post is available to paid subscribers only. As always, thank you for your generous support, which helps me continue in the fight to protect the sex-based rights of women and girls and to stop the abolition of sex.
On July 24, the US chapter of Women’s Declaration International filed a friend of the court brief in a case called L.W. v. Skrmetti. In that case, a group of kids (and their parents and doctors) sued the state of Tennessee over a law that prohibits the administration of puberty blockers, wrong-sex hormones, and “gender affirming” surgeries in minors. They won at the district court level, but the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals lifted the district court’s order, expedited briefing on appeal, and promised a decision by the end of September. That decision came on September 28.
Yesterday, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the First Amendment prohibits public schools from compelling students to “respect a student’s gender identity.”
Both are solid wins for the movement to protect the sex-based rights of women and girls and to stop the abolition of sex.
