SCOTUS to take up gender affirming caseThe Supreme Court will wade into the controversial topic of puberty blockers and hormone therapy for transgender people under the age of 18, taking up a case that could be a flashpoint in the fight for LGBTQ rights.

The court agreed Monday to hear the Biden administration's challenge to a Tennessee's ban on gender-affirming medical treatment for minors, an increasingly potent political issue that has divided lower courts and emerged as a leading front in the battle over LGBTQ issues.

The case will be argued in the next term, which begins in October.

It's the first time the justices will weigh in on the matter, which is being fought by transgender teens and their families.
