A transgender woman says a pharmacist refused to fill her hormone prescription:
Great way to start a weekend, and hey pharmacies have already denied birth control recently… what’s next?
“I was finally going to start seeing my body reflect my gender identity and the woman I’ve always known myself to be,” she said.Her elation quickly turned to anxiety when the pharmacist refused to fill her prescription and humiliated her in front of other customers, she said.
Hall said she called the CVS customer service line twice. When no one addressed her concerns, she decided to file a complaint with the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy on Thursday.In a statement to CNN, CVS said the pharmacist violated company policies and is no longer employed.“We also apologize for not appropriately following up on Ms. Hall’s original complaint to CVS, which was due to an unintentional oversight, ” the statement added. “We pride ourselves in addressing customer concerns in a timely manner and we are taking steps to prevent this isolated occurrence from happening again.”CVS has a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) Corporate Equality Index, which ranks businesses based on their support for LGBTQ equality.

Judge denies trans teen’s name change because Caitlyn Jenner may have brainwashed them…:
Hmmmm… here’s a judge out there who needs a couple of thousand protests/letters/etc. [ i.e. Princess Consuela Banana-Hammock ]
Elliott, 15, has been seeing a therapist for a year and has been seeing a specialist at the transgender clinic at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
“We thought it was just a formality, basically,” Elliott’s mother Leigh said.
She said that Judge Joseph Kirby’s questions were strange.
“He started out by asking us, ‘Did this all start when all of this stuff came out in the media?‘” she said. Kirby clarified that he was referring to Caitlyn Jenner.
He ultimately denied the name change, writing, “Children change significantly and rapidly.” He attributed Elliott’s gender identity to the “fevered identity exploration” of adolescence. Kirby told Elliott to “Age. Develop. Mature.” and that he should ask again to change his name when he turns 18.
Kirby’s ruling used Elliott’s deadname and repeatedly misgendered him.
