Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves signed a bill into law Monday that would bar transgender people from using bathrooms that correspond with their gender identities in the state's public schools.

The legislation, titled the Securing Areas for Females Effectively and Responsibly Act, or the "SAFER Act," mandates that the state's schools have single-sex restrooms, changing rooms and dormitories. Its text defines someone's sex as "'determined solely by a birth,' without regard to the fluidity of how someone acts or feels."

Rob Hill, the Mississippi state director for the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest LGBTQ advocacy group, called the new law an attempt to "strip basic rights from LGBTQ+ people in our state."

"This bill does nothing but attempt to push us further apart at the expense of LGBTQ+ people, who deserve the freedom to be and to use bathrooms and locker rooms without the prying eyes of politicians peering over the stall," Hill said in a statement. "Shame on the governor and the MAGA agenda of hate."

Another example of someone who doesn't know the difference between sex and gender, making the rules for those who do.

Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything.
Maybe it's about un-becoming everything that isn't really you,
so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.
