Gwendolyn Herzig, a transgender pharmacist, went to the Arkansas statehouse last month to testify in support of providing transgender youth with gender-affirming health care. Herzig hoped lawmakers would take her expert background into consideration as they debated a law that would allow anyone who received gender-affirming care from a doctor as a minor to sue for malpractice for up to 30 years after they turn 18. Instead, she was met with transphobia. “You said you’re a trans woman,” Republican state Rep. Matt McKee said. “Do you have a penis?” Herzig later told NBC News that the experience “was probably the most publicly humiliating thing I’ve ever gone through.”
