    It just says he passed it on to conversative activists, I still cannot begin to understand how this furthers a conservative agenda?

    Dude… Come on… 🤦‍♂️

      Could you spell it out for me? Genuinely drawing a blank here.

      Edit: No need, some kind user came through. Horrifying.

        Step 1. Right wing anti-trans doctor steals medical records proving the hospital was providing gender-affirming therapies for trans kids despite publicly saying they would stop doing so (Though it was still legal to do so in Texas at the time).

        Step 2. Right wing anti-trans doctor gives stolen medical records proving the hospital was providing gender-affirming therapies for trans kids to anti-trans conservative activist.

        Step 3. Anti-trans conservative activist uses right wing anti-trans doctor’s stolen medical records to cause malicious harm to the patients, their families, doctors, and the hospital.

        How on earth are you struggling to understand that this furthers the conservative agenda?

          Thanks, I guess it was the part where how this caused “malicious harm” given he didn’t reveal any sort of hidden scandal or illegal acitivty but the other user explained it’ll result in patients being afraid to access medical care which is beginning to make sense to me. I’m not based in the US, this is all so alien to me.

            I’m a trans person that lives in a purple state.

            Watching stuff like this happen in other states makes me afraid to get healthcare even here where it’s currently safe and accessible.

            So, actions like this affect all trans people. As many other posters mentioned, it’s a terrorist act. The intention is to keep trans people afraid so we don’t seek healthcare.
