Missouri Trans ‘Snitch Form’ Down After People Spam It With ‘B Movie’ Scripts

The form asked users to submit complaints and concerns about gender-affirming care.

A Missouri government tip site for submitting complaints and concerns about gender-affirming care has shut down after people were flooded with fanfiction, rambling jokes and “B movie” scripts.

Missouri Attorney General’s Office start An online form for “Transgender Center Concerns” in late March invites those who have witnessed “problematic practices” at the clinics to submit tips. The site did not ask users to provide the names of patients or healthcare providers, but encouraged users to fill out the form in “as much detail as possible.”

But days after TikTok and Twitter users spammed the site with obscenities, the tip line has been removed from the Missouri government site entirely. Instead of the online form, the tip line link now says the page no longer exists.

Madeleine Siren, press secretary for Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey, blamed “far-left activists” for breaking the site. She said the tip line is temporarily down.

“Instead of standing by their supposed science to back up their facts, they’re trying to hack our systems to silence the victims of the exact network we’re trying to expose,” Siren told TechCrunch in an email. “To ensure the integrity of the government website, the page is temporarily closed while we investigate these matters.”

Siren did not specify what the “hack” was.

Bailey said her office has set up a tip line for parents to raise concerns about the gender-supportive care their children receive at transgender youth centers. It also issued an emergency rule that severely restricts access to gender-affirming care.

PROMO, a Missouri LGBTQ advocacy organization, said Bailey “fanned the flames of hate” in issuing the emergency rule.

“The Attorney General’s claims are maliciously cherry-picked and come from unverified sources that allow him to release outrageous, obstructive and misleading information in an emergency rule,” the promo said in one. statement. “It should be clear to anyone paying attention that the real threat to Missourians is the attorney general himself.”

Social media users on TikTok, Twitter and Tumblr ensured that Bailey’s office would have plenty of evidence to investigate, flooding the site with fake complaints and other spur-of-the-moment incidents.

When the online form was first launched it lacked captcha, which savvy Twitter users quickly used to their advantage. Using bots to spam the site. Users also a generator To release fictitious names and fake Missouri addresses. Others just dumped text into the complaint form, ranging from The entire script of “B Movie”. To Billy May’s OxiClean Sales Pitch, To Walter White’s opening monologue in “Breaking Bad”. TikTok users said they submitted “The Most Enthusiastic Fanfic From AO3” And “Mario and Luigi’s Saucy Love Story.”

“I knew the weird phoenix I read at 3am would come in handy,” one TikTok commenter said.

Many submitted elaborate anecdotes Mothers used to take their children “to the corner gender clinic to be changed”. And “Many Men Get Gender Confirmation Care Via Viagra.” Another tip joked referencing “The Crucible”.“I saw Sara Proctor injecting estrogen with the devil.”

A captcha was added to the tip form on Thursday, but that alone wasn’t enough to stop the trolls. The form was removed from the Attorney General’s site by Friday morning.

Spamming tip forms, colloquially known as “snitch lines” by opponents, is not new. Texas abortion whistleblower site shut down after 2021 Activists filled it with Shrek porn. Amid mass protests following the death of George Floyd in 2020, Activists spammed the law enforcement agency’s tip line With K-pop fancams and videos of police brutality against protesters. Relentless trolling has become a form of protest against strict surveillance.

The tip line is part of a larger “investigation” that Missouri’s attorney general is using to target the state’s trans community. Earlier this month, Bailey announced An emergency directive that severely restricts access to gender-affirming care in the state.

The new restrictions, which will come into effect on April 27, will require patients to attend 15 sessions of therapy over 18 months before receiving puberty blockers, hormonal drugs or gender-affirming surgery. In an emergency judgmentBailey referenced the state’s consumer protection law, claiming it is “charged with protecting consumers, including minors, from harm.”

Citing emergency rule a Disputed whistleblower report A transgender youth center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital allegedly rushed patients into gender-affirming care without informed consent.

The ACLU of Missouri argues that Bailey’s emergency rule is based not on scientific evidence, but on divisive claims.

The ACLU of Missouri states that “gender-affirming care is critical to helping transgender teens succeed in school, build healthy relationships with their friends and family, live authentically as themselves, and dream about their futures.” Tweeted. “This emergency regulation will have a profoundly negative impact on transgender youth, the prejudice, discrimination, violence and other forms of stigma they will continue to face in their daily lives.”
