Texas initiates investigations into trans kids families 

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services has opened an investigation into one of its own employees who has a transgender teenager after she was reported for alleged child abuse according to a lawsuit filed this week. The suit follows a non-bonding legal opinion issued last week by the Texas Attorney-General which stated that providing gender-affirming medical care – including puberty blockers and hormone therapy – to any person under age 18 is considered child abuse under state law. A day after the opinion, Governor Greg Abbott (pictured) released a directive calling on ‘licensed professionals’ and ‘members of the general public’ to report the parents of transgender minors to public authorities if it appears the minors are receiving that type of medical care. 

Zoë Kravitz says she ‘interpreted’ Catwoman as bisexual in ‘The Batman’

Kravitz also agreed with the interviewer who said they were happy Catwoman was finally portrayed as bisexual.   

Singapore’s top court dismissed attempt to overturn gay sex ban

The Court of Appeal in Singapore has dismissed a challenge by three gay rights activists against a law criminalising sex between men, ruling that since authorities did not enforce the law it did not breach the plaintiff’s constitutional rights.  The activists who brought the challenge against the rarely used law under which offenders can be jailed for up to two years, included a retired doctor, a DJ, and a former director of a non-profit group. Singapore’s Chief Justice said in a written judgment that although the law had “long been a lightning rod for polarisation,” the court did not find a breach of the constitution. He further said the law was “unenforceable” because Singapore authorities do not plan to prosecute gay sex.
