THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Sounds familiar? That’s because he’s the same Bible quoting, “DNA-expert” Oklahoma judge I wrote about a few weeks ago.
The American Civil Liberties Union has stepped in appealing Oklahoma County District Judge Bill Graves’ refusal to allow trans woman Angela Renee Ingram to make her name legal in the state of Oklahoma.
At Ingram’s hearing on Aug 30, Judge Graves told her: “You can’t change what God gave you.”
ACLU of Oklahoma’s Ryan Kiesel: “A person’s name is a fundamental part of their identity, and it is indefensible for a judge to rob someone of their legal right choose their own name.”
The ACLU filed the appeal on Sept. 27th. An earlier case which the judge quoted the Bible at length to deny another trans person a name change is already in front of the Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals.
Graves: “If you’re born male, you stay male, according to the study I’ve done on DNA. If you’re born female, you stay female.”
