By | Politics | No Comments

(CNN)The Rev. David Wynn told Texas lawmakers how the proposed “bathroom bill” would affect him, one of the hundreds to speak in about 13 hours of public testimony.Wynn, a transgender man with a full beard, said his birth certificate still says “female,” so he would be required to use the women’s restroom under the new rules.”There’s been a lot of conversation, too, about having men in the women’s bathroom,” Wynn said, according to The Texas Tribune. “And I guarantee you there’s going to be a problem if I show up in a woman’s bathroom.”

I know that I have been quite on the politics front lately, that is because I have been trying to catch up with the work that I  have missed in the last month when I was sick. However, I decided to now speak out once again because this HORRIBLE bill is advancing in the Texas Legislature. I urge everyone who reads this post and who happens to live Texas to call, text, email, and mail their representatives and demand that they vote NO on this bill. This bill has nothing to do with protecting children from perverts. To even insinuate that is Transphobic in of itself. This bill has EVERYTHING to do with discriminating against Trans and non-binary people by banning them from public spaces. This bill has EVERYTHING to do with trying to further disfranchise and humiliate Trans and non-binary people

Instead of concentrating on items such as Education (we have one of the worst educationals systems in the country), or doing something about our staggering unemployment rate the Texas Legislature has decided to gin up a non-issue just to make them look good. So please if you care about Trans or non-binary people please, PLEASE contact your representative right now!

Texas’s anti-transgender bathroom bill, explained – Vox

Last year, North Carolina Republicans passed a sweeping anti-LGBTQ law that, among other measures, prohibited transgender people from using the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity in schools and government buildings. The law inspired a furious backlash, leading businesses to boycott the state and contributing to Gov. Pat McCrory’s defeat on Election Day.Despite the backlash, Texas is gearing up to pass its own law prohibiting trans people from using the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity.On Thursday, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick unveiled SB6. The bill, if approved by the legislature, would prohibit trans people from using the bathroom or locker room for their gender identity in schools and other public buildings, with violations enforced through a civil fine of at least $1,000 per offense. It would also let businesses set anti-trans bathroom policies, overriding any local laws that say they can’t.

Hello, guys! I know it’s been a while since I did my last post. I have been really busy with my real life and with my other work. Especially, since this past week was the first week after the holiday season. So I  was really swamped at work.

However, this is not what this post is supposed to be about. I want to talk briefly about a very important subject of this anti-transgender bill that’s currently going through the Texas legislator. It is obvious that this bill is based on unsubstantiated paranoia and fear and it must not be passed at all costs.

Not only is this further oppressing a segment of the population that is already been seen so much discrimination both legally and socially. This is trying to strip the transgender residents of Texas basic human rights as the US citizens and transgender residents of their very dignity.

I have social anxiety and I was very nervous call my state representatives but I did it anyway because I value the rights of my transgender of my transgender brothers and sisters. And if you are any part of the LGBT+ community or even consider yourself an ally then you should you care about this! So please if you live in Texas, please drop everything now and call your state representatives.
