On Tuesday, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), presented the "Transgender Bill of Rights" to Congress, which attempts to make health care about gender transitioning easier to access, enable people to play on sports that align with their gender identity rather than biology, as well as codify Roe v Wade.

The bill mentions the 2020 Supreme Court decision of Bostock v Clayton County, which includes sexual orientation and gender identity under protections from discrimination, with a press release from Jayapal noting that the bill comes both after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, and further on the 53rd anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York City.

Airlines that have poorly stumbled over the last two holidays are facing their most significant test yet of whether they can handle big crowds when July Fourth travelers mob the country's airports this weekend - and the answer seems to be no.

Problems were popping up well before the weekend, with many disruptions caused by thunderstorms that slowed air traffic. But as Saturday came it was apparent that weather was not the only problem facing air travel - from a work slow down from Delta pilots to incomplete flight crews caused hundreds of flights to be cancelled and thousands delayed.

American Airlines canceled 8% of its flights on Tuesday and Wednesday, and United Airlines cleaned 4% of its schedule on both days, according to FlightAware.

It happened after the actor tweeted about testimony during the January 6 Committee hearings.

“Trump tried to choke a Secret Service agent. I mean…what more do you need?” the actor said.

“Better than shooting you cinematographer,” the Twitter user responded.

On June 15, the White House issued an executive order promoting the expansion of gender-affirming services, including for children and teenagers. The order represents the Biden administration's latest effort to expand legal protections based on sexual orientation and "gender identity."

While sexual orientation is widely acknowledged and respected, the concept of "gender identity" remains novel and highly contentious. Dissenters, including many feminists, argue that allowing people to identify into whichever sex category they choose carries negative consequences—particularly for women and children's rights.

Biden's executive order seeks to "promote expanded access to comprehensive health care for LGBTQI+ individuals, including by working with States on expanding access to gender-affirming care." When it comes to sex and gender issues, the "gender-affirming" model argues that health care professionals must not question, challenge or even explore ideas or alternatives with patients who identify with the opposite sex. Therapists are simply tasked with affirming patients' rejection of their biological sex, forbidden from questioning the underlying reasons behind these feelings.

The federal government's decree that this model is the only way to deal with cross-sex identification raises important questions about the medicalization of youth who desperately want to escape their bodies, and the freedom of professionals whose first commitment is to do no harm.

The US Supreme Court last week overturned the right of a woman to take the private decision to terminate a pregnancy.

What had been a constitutionally settled right for 50 years, was abrogated by the stroke of a pen. This followed decades of relentless work by right-wing anti-abortion groups, including top lawmakers, to erode rights to healthcare and control over one’s body, family and future.

A majority of Americans views the overturning of Roe vs. Wade as a serious step backwards for women’s rights, and worries that other rights may now be in danger.

Indeed, the same court could decide to prevent consumers, companies, publications and state contractors from exercising their right to engage in political boycotts – a right that has been recognized by that court for decades.

Reversing its own 2021 decision, the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on 22 June that boycotts of Israel are not protected by the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
