Utah Rupblican’s bill would mandate genitila inspection of students

Meet Michael S. Kennedy (R) the Republican wants to look at school children’s genitalia. OK, so he wouldn’t personally gawk but he wants to have everyone he deems suspiciously gendered certified by a doctor.

That’s creepy.

Lets not stop there Rep. Kennedy! Why don’t we stare at every child judgmentally, to decide if their genitalia should be inspected. You never know these days, there are many trans children using hormone blockers living fully integrated lives, happily with their peers.

This grown man doesn’t have anything better to do? And he’s a ‘doctor’? As first broke by PARKER MARIE MOLLOY at the Advocate….

Well I guess it’s pretty much a sure fire way to get reelected in Utah if you prey on trans children. Here’s a partial transcript of HB0087:

             1185          (ii) a signed, written document from a physician, as defined in Section 58-67-102 , that,
             1186      based on a physical examination of the individual’s genitalia, designates the individual
             1187      phenotypically as either male or female, if:

             1191          (b) “Gender” does not mean an individual’s own opinion of whether the individual is:

             1196          (v) another designation.
             1197          (c) “Gender” is defined for the purposes of state law only and does not apply to federal
             1198      law.
