Texas Court Says Transgenders Don’t Exist

Wharton – The wife of a Texas firefighter killed in the line of duty won’t receive any of his death benefits, thanks to the man’s ex-wife, a Texas district court judge and the fundamentalist legal organization, Alliance Defense Fund (ADF).

The problem? Firefighter Capt. Thomas Araguz’s wife Nikki (pictured) used to have male genitalia before sex reassignment surgery, and according to Judge Randy Clapp of the 329th District Court of Wharton County, that meant that Nikki was a male – and therefore couldn’t have been married to Thomas.
