Arkansas Lawmakers Ban Gender-Confirming Treatments for Youth

The state becomes the first to ban gender confirming treatments and surgery for transgender youth

On Tuesday, Arkansas lawmakers officially made the state the first to ban gender confirming treatments and surgery for transgender youth. The Associated Press reports “The Republican-controlled House and Senate voted to override GOP Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s veto of the measure, which prohibits doctors from providing gender-confirming hormone treatment, puberty blockers or surgery to anyone under 18 years old, or from referring them to other providers for the treatment.”

Governor Hutchinson initially vetoed the bill “following please from pediatricians, social workers and the parents of transgender youth who said the measure would harm a community already at risk for depression and suicide” reports the AP.

Proponents of the measure say the procedures are experimentation when it comes to minors and compared restrictions to other limitations states place upon minors. “They need to get to be 18 before they make those decisions,” Republican Rep. Robin Lundstrum said.

Those who oppose the ban have vowed to sue before it takes effect this summer. Opponents include “several medical and child welfare groups, including the American Academy of Pediatrics” reports the AP. The law is to take effect no earlier than late July, and the American  Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has said it plans to challenge the measure before then.

Governor Hutchinson stated he vetoed the measure because it went too far in interfering with parents’ and physicians’ decisions. He was also concerned that it will cut off care for the transgender youth in the middle of their treatments. He added he would have supported and signed the bill if it had only focused on gender-confirming surgery, which currently is not performed on minors in the state.

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

shoplifter

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
