This Could Be Horrible!

Just when you thought that it couldn’t get much worst it, the haters are coming out of the woodwork.
GOP-Sponsored Anti-Transgender Bill Hits National Stage, Hate Group Applauds
SFGN
July 11, 2017

(EDGE) A Texas-style anti-transgender law hit the national stage last month with the introduction of The Civil Rights Uniformity Act of 2017 (HR 2796).

The House of Representatives bill, which purports to "repeal executive overreach," was introduced by Texas GOP Pete Olson and aims to roll back transgender rights by prohibiting the word "sex" or "gender" from meaning anything other than "man" or "woman."

Right up front in the second paragraph of its summary, HR 2796 is unapologetically anti-transgender, stating:

"No federal civil rights law shall be interpreted to treat gender identity or transgender status as a protected class, unless it expressly designates "gender identity" or "transgender status" as a protected class."
[…]
"The Civil Rights Uniformity Act would ensure that policies which affect the privacy and safety of women and girls are no longer reshaped to meet the demands of the special LGBT rights agenda," the hate group mouthpiece continued.. "The terms 'sex' and 'gender' refer to objective biology, not the subjective, self-professed 'gender identity' as the Obama administration tried to push in all federal anti-discrimination statutes."  
This could wipe-out all the advances we have made in the last thirty years. All the precedent setting court cases would be wiped out.

The Republicans are evil, they are persecuting us for votes, money, and their so called “religious values” but in reality it is nothing more that bigotry. Hopefully there will be enough moderates in Congress who will stop this hate.

The way I feel about this is that this is just one step down from Paragraph 175 of the German criminal code.
