Attorneys General in 21 states signed an amicus brief stating that transgender people must be allowed to use the bathroom of their gender identity.
Springfield, Oregon...A highlight....I very rarely go to fast food. Recently a newly built Wendy's opened a new restaurant. I noticed that both bathrooms were not gender specific.
The AGs have done something significant and affirming of trans and human rights!
Of course this is good news but no one seriously believes that the attempt to restrict bathroom usage is anything but based on hate and bias particularly aimed at women who are trans. This is in reality similar to the restriction of bathrooms based on racial discrimination and comes from many of the same states that instituted those laws. The deleterious effects of this hate far outweighs any unproven, ridiculous, potential effects of allowing bathroom usage by trans women. There are already laws that deal with those that commit actual crimes and has been said, if the desire to protect children is so important, they should go by statistics, they need to restrict bathroom usage by the 3 P's, priests, pastors and lots of politicians
I read “21 State AGs” and my eyes just glazed over. Not this shit, again. Imagine my surprise that this is actually positive news.
With the exception of North Carolina, all the states participating in this are Biden states (from 2020)....no surprises there.
I’m glad to see there is push back in a major way! I’m a cis passing trans man and if their plan is to keep men out of the women’s restroom then they will definitely fail in that.
North Carolina joined in on this? Good for them!
excellent reporting! thank you. these facts and analysis are quite useful
If no one has advised the Supreme Court on where you should use the bathroom, that's privilege.
