BATHROOM BRAWLS SPREADING
Oklahoma Lawmakers Introduce Vile Measure Attacking Transgender Youth
What the heck is happening to this country?
The doors of hatred, bigotry and persecution have opened.
Hate and discrimination are pouring down through opened flood gates.
This is the sad reality of our times.
What happened to:
The second paragraph in the Declaration of Independence states
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
Why this obsession about what people have between their legs?
Why this crap about security in bathrooms?
These seem to be demons that live in the psyche of very narrowminded people.
Scared people …. scared of what?
Vilify what you don’t know or understand.
I wonder about the demons/skeletons in their closet.
SAD REALITY INDEED
Today, HRC and Freedom Oklahoma, the state organization working to advance equality for LGBT Oklahomans, strongly condemned the introduction of a new anti-transgender bill in the Oklahoma State Legislature. The outrageous proposal would force schools to make accommodations for students who purport to have religious objections to sharing a sex-segregated space with transgender students. Going a step further, the legislation also strangely states that allowing students with religious objections to use a single-user facility is not an acceptable accommodation.
“To be clear, transgender young people are the ones being targeted. Legislators should be working to find solutions that ensure that they are safe and treated equally by their school, not stigmatized by the people elected to protect them,” said HRC Communications Director Jay Brown.
“Like so many of the anti-transgender bills we’re seeing, this is a solution in search of a problem that does not exist. School districts across this country have had policies in place for more than a decade with no safety problems at all. This does nothing more than demean transgender students and undermine their dignity.
If passed, Governor Fallin must veto this bill, which gambles with the lives and safety of young people.”
Human Rights Campaign
Despite claims to the contrary by anti-LGBT activists who have preyed on misinformation and ignorance, states with laws protecting transgender people’s access to public accommodations, including restrooms that accord with their gender identity, have seen no increase in public safety incidents.
Cities and states throughout the country have rejected similar attacks on the transgender community.
South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard vetoed legislation that limited restroom use for transgender children in public schools earlier this year, and the sponsor of a similar bill in Tennessee recently pulled the legislation from consideration. Additionally, after immense backlash, the City Council of Oxford, Ala. rescinded an anti-transgender ordinance that imposed jail time and a fine on violators of the law.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
From North Carolina to Mississippi to Missouri to Tennessee, HRC has been actively fighting more than 200 anti-LGBT state bills that have been introduced this year. #NoHateInMyState
