    Given that Walsh works for the Daily Wire, this is not only awkward but quite amusing.

    She left ESPN because they had basically the same policy as Fox News. Oh well. She’ll have her safe space at the Daily Wire.

    Except, apparently, if she gets near Matt Walsh.

    Not a big shock that those who were well positioned financially prior to Covid came out of it even better.

    So this person apparently believes that the GOP's war to roll back the clock will eventually allow red states to go after gay marriage rights again. "Back to the Future" should just be the official GOP slogan on culture/social issues now. "Things are going to get very, very bad" may well apply to a lot more than just gay marriage rights in the next few years.

    Another depressing example of the very real and prominent threat that the Republican Party poses for minorities, and exactly why there can be no Democratic Party schism while the Republican Party exists.

    Gov. Greg Abbott signs Texas bill restricting transgender participation in school sports

    A Texas bill seeking to limit transgender students' access to school sports is now law.
    Gov. Greg Abbott signed the bill on Monday that prohibits students in public schools from competing in sports that don't align with their gender listed at birth. The bill was passed by the State's Republican-led legislature earlier in October and sent to Abbott's desk for his signature.

    The bill passed via a 76-61 margin in the House of Representatives and a 19-12 vote in the Senate. Abbott didn't publicly comment on the law upon signing it. It will take effect in January.
    The bill overrides a previous provision to state law that allowed students to obtain a court order to permit them to compete as the gender with which they identify. Republican state Rep. Valoree Swanson, a vocal advocate of the bill, argued that the new law's intent is to protect girls in sports.

    "We need a statewide level playing field," Swanson said while advocating for the bill on the House floor earlier in October. "It’s very important that we, who got elected to be here, protect our girls.”

    LGBTQ advocates argue that the law's intent is to discriminate and further stigmatize transgender lifestyles with which its supporters don't agree. Ricardo Martinez, chief executive officer of Equality Texas, argued against the the bill while speaking with the Associated Press last week.

    “This cruel and grotesque ban puts a target on the backs of transgender children and adults, erases intersex people and sends a clear message that transgender and intersex people aren’t welcome or safe in Texas,” Martinez said.

    Republican-led legislators in more than 20 states have proposed bills limiting transgender participation in public schools. Texas joins Tennessee, Mississippi, Florida, Arkansas and Montana in passing such bills into law.

    Critics characterize the bills as solutions without problems and argue that legislators can't point to instances in their states where girls have experienced unfair treatment or even competed against transgender athletes.

    An Associated Press survey of legislators supporting such bills found that several couldn't cite an instance of a transgender girl's participation in sports existing or causing a problem in their states. Others pointed to a case in Connecticut that's received widespread attention and is often cited by supporters of bills limiting transgender rights.

    Monday's is the latest controversial measure approved Abbott in recent months. In May, Abbott signed Senate Bill 8 into law prohibiting abortions as early as six weeks into pregnancy. Earlier this month, Abbott signed an executive order outlawing COVID-19 vaccine mandates in Texas, including those among private employers.

    At this point it does seem pretty clear that the next great GOP assault will be rolling back gay rights and especially gay marriage in at least red states, just like the Obergefell lawyer said. They're not going to stop until they've legally rolled our culture back to the 50s.
