The appeals court anonymously granted Angela Renee Ingram her request. A year and a half ago the same appeals court overturned Judge Graves’ decision in a separate case to deny trans woman Christie Ann Harvey a name change.
Judge Graves gained notoriety for quoting the Bible in denying trans people name changes and for his “expertise” on DNA: “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.”
Graves says he is going to abide by the appeals court’s decision.
This is the third or fourth time I’m writing about this fellow. Voters in Oklahoma, it’s the 21st century, vote accordingly!
