‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Trailer Reveals Return of Green Goblin and Electro, but Still No Tobey or Andrew

Kind of puts you in a position hoping some of these legislators would have transgender children of their own. Please check Greg Abbots temperature. It’s discriminatory. Way-2-high. The word 'transgender' is meaningless when it includes magic. Is that why they say only Steers and Quires come fromTexas? Don't Americans vote to elect people serve then rather dictate to them ?

What about ban them from going to women and girls restroom. Trans boy already rape a girl in school. You can't play in women sports if you have testosterone as a man, you will be at the advantage!! Not hard to understand!! Common sense. The cancellation of women in society needs to stop. Sports teams are (or should be) separated by sex not gender.


Texas House Passes Bill To Bar Transgender Athletes From Women’s SportsThe vote puts Texas on the path to becoming the largest state to pass an anti-trans sports bill this year. Conservatism always loses in the end, their 'ideas' alway get discarded to the scrap heap of history...only a matter of time😃👍 Boo! good luck

Rule out Catholic Pedophilia cases only date back to when the Royal Government of Fascist Italy infiltrated and assimilated many of the Church's financial & political institutions. This then passed to Mafia families after the United States liberated Italy, only to turn power over to them. When the LGBT lobby finally voted to ban NAMBLA from marching unilaterally, members of both NAMBLA and the Gay Liberation Front formed their own competing march called 'The Spirit of Stonewall'...commemorating Riots over the Stonewall Inn sponsored by Mafia figures to sell drugs.

The International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) faced a firestorm of criticism in 1993 when it took on the challenge of speaking at the UN on behalf of LGBT groups worldwide. Right-wing groups slammed it for connections to NAMBLA, forcing the ILGA to cut ties with the group. Good going Texas! Keep up the good work!

The Pedophile Information Exchange (PIE) became an official affiliate of the 'National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL)' in 1978, but backlash over the organization's Pedosexual agenda forced the NCCL to disavow all connections to them by 1983; it wasn't made public until 2014. You are a country that does nothing about school shootings but pass laws prohibiting kids from playing sports. Barbaric.

Oh good then they must have fixed their failing and broken electricity infrastructure or else this would be a negligent waste of everyone’s time. Boy, the Repubs in Texas sure do spend a lot of time doing ANYTHING but actually helping the people of their state.

Appeals Court Again Lets Texas Continue Abortion BanThe decision by a federal appeals court pushes the anti-abortion law deputizing its citizens closer to returning to the U.S. Supreme Court Deputize people to turn in rapists -$10,000! Roe is gonna go!!! Abortion is Satanic. It occurs to me that when Democrats take Texas, they can make laws allowing vigilantes to take republicans to court for creating laws that create situations promoting sickness and death. It should be easy to prove, since the evidence of the one-to-one correlation is everywhere.

Texas is a national disgrace. Too bad they can't find a way to stop school shootings. Doesn't matter which team kids play on if they're gunned down in the classrooms. Just another example of gqp trying to legislate morality. In the end their divisive policies will fail. As the National Chamber of Commerce and the CCP work to divide and conquer the ability of U S Companies to compete , more woke coming.

Texas is a disgusting state under Abbott. Have they left the union Texans lead the way. If Democrats oppose this move to a Democrat cesspool like NY or Mexifornia. He'll yea although its pretty much common sense. I don't think it's fair if you got a 17 year old born male playing in women's softball or other sport Let's be honest You play in the gender sport you were born in Nothing will ever change who you truly are when you were conceived

Great! As it should be. 👏👏👏👏

Texas anti-abortion law upheld by federal court, setting up potential SCOTUS caseThe Supreme Court had previously declined to rule on the law's constitutionality, despite the wishes of pro-choice groups.

Finally some common sense prevails. Good. Great news Makes sense I can say I’m a Japanese but you know what …I’M NOT. I can say I want to be a woman…BUT I’M NOT I was born with a penis. Cut it off and I was still born with a penis. Born Males will always have x Y chromosomes Female x x and that my friend is that!

Hooray! Hallelujah! That’s a good thing! NBC- law targets transgenders Reality-law [protects woman in sports Good for them I now identify as a girl, so I can go in their locker room

U.S. appeals court rules to keep Texas abortion ban in effectA U.S. appeals court on Thursday refused a petition by the U.S. Department of Justice to put on hold Texas's restrictive abortion law, which bars the procedure as early as six weeks into pregnancy. nice Texas is old school ayy 😂

Good. Nothing against transgender ppl, but their genetic makeup is that of which they are born as, and it is unfair for a transgender wo/man to compete in the same sport opposite of a natural wo/man. The unfairness is thrown at a heterosexual but we can’t turn it around Pure discrimination Common sense. Males compete with males and females compete with females! People who can’t identify who they are have more problems than competing in sports!

I agree with this sorry PC people! Yes..I have no problem with this 😡😡😡 GOP the Party of assholes and jerks! That’s disgusting And that they call democracy and equality. They claim that our freedom should be protected and all they do is the opposite!

How Matthew McConaughey responded when asked about potential run for Texas governor“I can confirm there has been no calls to Matthew McConaughey from this office that I am aware of or tracking,” White House press sec. Jen Psaki says when asked about the actor’s potential gubernatorial run in Texas. Why would this question be ask when it’s so many other good questions to ask like what is happening at the border and what are we doing to protect Americans? Elect a celebrity, what could go wrong You have the Greenlight Matthew....... Alright, Alright, Alright..... Time to Heal.........

We are too busy spending time fighting one Black male comedian while the enemy RNC is overturning protections for the LGBTQAI community! Marriage equality is next. Pay attention!! That is so cruel! 🤬💩🕳🕳🕳🕳🕳🕳🕳🕳🕳🕳🕳 This is a wonderful thing. Good for Texas Republicans. This should be a law in all 48 States. Its not fair to especially for a boy to compete against a girl.

They just Hate EVERYTHING that ISNT WHITE Wealthy men don't they now. You'd think there'd be a law or regulations against such kinds of discrimination and the denying of peoples human and civil rights. Oh thats right..this isnt that kind of country anymore. Just evil,all it is. Good. It should be biological not how you identify. If you can't understand that men and women are biologically different you should identify as a moron. Anyone think it's fair that biological males that identify as women should be in a women's weightlifting competition?

Good. Protect the girls and their scholarship opportunities. Smart I mean of course they did. The one star state. Don’t they have more pressing matters to tend to like clean water for all, funds for natural and environmental disaster victims, security of the electric grid, transition from fossile fuels to renewable energy? Why focus on matters related to people’s crotch?

Texas Man Is Sentenced for Using Dating App to Target Gay MenA Texas man was sentenced to 23 years in federal prison Wednesday for his connection in a scheme that used the popular dating app Grindr to target gay men for violent hate crimes, prosecutors said. The man, Daniel Jenkins, 22, of Dallas, pleaded guilty in June to one count of conspiracy to commit hate crimes, kidnapping, carjacking, one hate crime count, and one count of using a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, the Department of Justice said in a statement. Jenkins was the he looks sad ZaleskiLuke He's going to be crying more when he's in prison. 😉😉😉 ZaleskiLuke Prison will be an awakening for him. He may 'end up' changing or hating himself for what he's done, forced or otherwise.

Next stop transgender will be hunted for sports Not that I agree with their stance. Given that half the wealth in the world exists oceanside. I'll have to quote a once popular song. 'Wooden Ships, on the water, Very Free. Silver people on the shoreline, let us be.' Jefferson Airplane. GOOD!!!! If I were Transgender, I wouldn't want to play on a Team that didn't fully Support & welcomed me... and, if they do stand support me? then, this Tweet should be about the Team who refused to play Sports on the grounds of Excluding a Transgender Team Member!
