Even though challenges will be filed, the chilling effects will endure.

Some days, the cumulative impact of what we've become as a country is overwhelming.

In the space of a week, a man is murdered in the subway, while onlookers casually film his death, a family is murdered for asking a neighbor to stop shooting his gun so their infant could sleep. Texas is openly disenfranchising a city. SCOTUS' corruption seems unending, with daily revelations. Finally, the former president openly promises to pardon insurrectionists.

I don't know how this country can realistically be governed.

The parade of cruelty from the Sunshine State continues unabated. It’s despicable and disgusting.

This is why I haven’t come out.

Why I only use the family restroom, if at all possible, and try not to think otherwise. Why I don’t announce my pronouns (PLEASE, allies, don’t force people to do this).

I’m in Missouri. We’re not safe. My biggest question: am I better here like this, or homeless somewhere else?

The party of "my body, my choice" with respect to masks and vaccines pissing all over everybody else’s personal medical choices. But it's not worth even bringing up. They ceased caring about their hypocrisy a long time ago.

Feinstein needs to be pushed out. Now. Her selfishness in holding up judges is impacting the entire country at a time when people cannot afford that.

Is the ACLU poised to file suit? Hope so.

Remember when NC passed a bathroom bill and was promptly subject to widespread condemnation and boycotts, including by major corporations and NCAA? Simpler times...

Just curious - when the line at the ladies room has been so long that I have been at risk of peeing myself, I have used the men’s room. This is now against Florida law?

Question- in several sections of the bill it says “this paragraph does not apply to students” or prisoners or educators and so on. Does that mean they are allowed to use the bathroom of their choice? Im so confused.
