I really attribute scientific illiteracy with fueling this problem.
If people better understood science, they wouldn't tolerate such scientific regression.
The name "STEM the Tide" is perfect. It's about time that grassroots movement has finally started to form to combat bad science being used by politicians to promote their agendas.

Time and time again, religious right lawmakers introduce bills attempting to ban transgender folks from public bathrooms...as if transgender people are a danger to women and kids. All the while, there are on average 70 reports of sexual abuse in churches per week in the United states. Link.
Transgender folks aren't the problem.
Where are the bills banning sex offenders from bathrooms? Where are the bills protecting kids from rapey pastors and priests?
Oh, right... the religious right doesn't give a fuck about real sexual assault that is happening in their own churches. They would rather demonize transgender folks than deal with the real problem.
Raping kids is already illegal, no need for new laws (trans or otherwise).
It's just a ploy to get votes.

This will have monumental effect on the next generation as millions of children will be brought up in secular households.
And it's mostly tax-free...
