It rarely happens, but the powers in Austin got it right today. Remember earlier this month, when the Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council told social workers it was okey-dokey to ignore LGBTQ and disabled clients?
Well, the community backlash was too hot to handle, and the Board retracted their action by a unanimous vote. Make no mistake, they knew what they were doing earlier, and it was deliberate. They perceived these groups as low-hanging fruit, that would not have the power to fight back. They were wrong. Every time they are wrong, they need to be corrected. Loudly.
