clues are hidden in the video.”Internet investigators quickly solved the puzzle, identifying her father as Iowa state senator Adrian Dickey.
The TikToker seemed to confirm this in a followup video, pointing out that her father was one of the Republicans urging the state Supreme Court to overturn a court decision that abortion is a constitutional right in the state.“Yes my dad didn’t vote on roe v wade but he did support this!
That’s enough for me to finally cut him off and no longer claim him as a parent,” she wrote with the video.In a separate video, she pointed out that he has had a role in the GOP effort to demonize and discriminate against transgender children who want to play school sports.Dickey told the Daily Dot that she came out to her father as a bill was wending its way through the legislature to ban trans kids from sports teams under the guise of “protecting girls’ sports.” She said she made the decision because she “wasn’t OK with what was happening.”Her father dismissed her after she came out, she said.
