Mass. is about to be a battleground over transgender rights
Stephanie Ebbert, The Boston Globe - 17 April 2018
"In the campaign video, the little girl wearing ponytails and Mary Janes looks bewildered. There’s a man beside her at the sink in a public restroom. He’s putting on lip gloss.
'A little girl shouldn’t have to wonder why there’s a man using the women’s bathroom,' says the child narrator.
Expect many similar images this year as Massachusetts becomes ground zero in the latest round of the nation’s culture wars. A November ballot question asking voters whether to keep or repeal the state’s 2016 antidiscrimination law is expected to be the first statewide referendum on transgender rights, taking the national temperature on a fiery hot social issue."
