A New York Times article, written in response to the failure of HERO to pass, declared in an op-ed on November 4th that “Sometime in the near future, a transgender teenager in Texas will attempt suicide — and maybe succeed — because vilifying people for their gender identity remains politically acceptable in America.”
It was a frightening rebuke as they equated rejection of the bathroom bill with hate, bigotry and potential suicides.
The Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) which was voted down is allegedly an anti-discrimination rule, but it doesn’t grant any civil rights. It just provides a course for a discrimination complaint though there always has been a clear path through the courts and other venues.
Reality dictates, however, that if a man is still physically a man, he should not be in a bathroom with a young girl or a woman who doesn’t want him there. It’s simply not safe. It’s not hatred and it’s not bigotry, it’s common sense. We can’t turn the rights of one class into a war on another.
The New York Times is apparently opposed to the safety and privacy rights of women and girls. Even if they don’t buy into the safety issue which any sane person would, what about privacy?
It’s not enough for a transgender to say he’s a girl or a woman or feels like a woman. It’s absurd. Having a penis makes them a male.
Houston’s mayor Annise Parker went so far as to insult her constituents on Twitter, calling them transphobes and blocking their accounts if they commented back.
She is a lesbian activist and she took the decision to heart.
A political agenda must not deprive people of liberty. It must be equal rights for all. Moral relativists want us to abandon reality in some kind of mass delusion so they can use the authority of government to control us.
Haters are people who encourage the delusion, not the objects of the delusion. They hate, they silence, and they control all who dissent.
They are Totalitarians. If they could, they’d burn us at stakes but they will settle for simply calling us racists, fascists, haters, sexists, and homophobes.
