Much of the copy in Minnesota state representative Glenn Gruenhagen's most recent letter to the editor of the McLeod County Chronicle, Transgender is not an immutable characteristic, is nearly identical to that covered by The Column's Andy Birkey in Rep. Gruenhagen promises anti-transgender legislation in 2016 back in October.
But the Glencoe Republican doubles down about individual "homosexual" and transgender people--as well as their political allies in the new letter:
. . . Finally, what the governor and many liberal DFLers want us to believe is that sexual orientation cannot be changed (even though thousands of individuals have left the homosexual lifestyle) but that gender can be changed, which is biologically impossible!
Transgenders need professional counseling and our help to clarify their confused feelings, not our misguided sympathies.
Please speak to your local school district about this issue as training programs have already started in Minnesota to indoctrinate educators with the false narrative of “gender fluidity.” . . .
We'll look forward to more denial as the session ripens while keeping an eye out for more coverage in The Column.
