MSM is wrong: no Texas Supreme Court did not declare open season on trans kids just now 

The mainstream media is doing a horrible job summarizing today's Texas Supreme Court decision. NO, they did not actually say it was fine for Texas to investigate trans young people and their families for abuse. In fact, every court case has affirmed the opposite.

The media is doing a terrible job of summarizing a complex decision into a short headline, and creating misinfo as a result.

MSM is wrong: no Texas Supreme Court did not declare open season on trans kids just now 

I've been on the phone just this afternoon with Shelly Skeen, a lawyer on the case for Lambda Legal, and what she says is literally the opposite of what most headlines are saying (i.e. NY Times, NPR). If you need reassurance, check out Chase Strangio on the birdisite: twitter.com/chasestrangio/stat

I've got more coming next week from Austin Chronicle, and maybe here later if people want.
