Thoughtful reporting

Thanks to Amanda Peacher and the crew at Mountain West News Bureau, and Boise State Public Radio. This is a complex issue and doesn’t fit into the usual length of a news story. You dealt with it from all angles.
I look forward to the episode after the ninth circuit ruling.
As a mental health professional, I understand that psychological and emotional pain is not easy to understand for some people. It’s not visible. Others might think it’s insignificant. However, people who are suffering from any mental condition, including gender dysphoria, deserve to be treated with dignity, and to be provided the full care that would be provided for any condition if it was a purely physical one.
Thanks for your work on this story.
