A high court ruling in the United Kingdom should enrage every right-thinking person: They ruled a child could be taken away from his or her mother because she let the kid live “entirely as a girl.” If that weren’t bad enough, other divorced parents are fighting for custody on grounds that the other parent is respectful of their transgender children. That and more in our look at bad news around the world.
