"Trans Woman Fights Charges She’s A Danger To Her Son"

Jessica Lynn, a trans woman living in California, is fighting for the right to see her son. When she separated from her wife, her ex (now living in Texas) was supportive of her transition, but that changed when Lynn said she wanted to talk about it with their 13-year-old son. The ex filed a temporary restraining order preventing Lynn from informing their son about her transition because it would have an “irreparable” emotional impact and be “dangerous to [his] mental health and emotional well-being.” There is nothing to substantiate such claims, but Texas does not have much case law on custody and transgender parents, so biases could influence the results.
