Transgender Activists Protest TX Senate Bathroom Bill

Curry, Jennings urge Texas House leader to continue opposition to Texas 'bathroom bill' noting General Convention

North Carolina's controversial House Bill 2 has been off the books for three months, but organizations that filed suit against the so-called "bathroom bill" say the law that replaced it leaves transgender people in this state unprotected from discrimination after they were put in the middle of highly publicized political debate. The compromise eliminated a provision that required transgender people to use restrooms in many public buildings corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates.

"Under HB 142, North Carolina is sending a message to LGBT people like me that we are not welcome here, that we are not deserving of protection from discrimination, and that we are not equally valued members of our communities", said Quinton Harper, 32, a bisexual cisgender black man who lives in Carrboro and is the other new plaintiff. It's disappointing that Governor Abbott has decided to bring legislators back to Austin to waste taxpayer time and money to discriminate against LGBTQ Texans. She came to speak up for her transgender daughter, but the people she made her case to already made promises to their voters back home and stand on those promises. The bathroom bill hinders economic growth, community, business development and Texas' overall ability to stay competitive in the search for the kind of diverse, smart talent that moves our state forward.

In the years since Harry Potter's debut, fans have developed a muggle-friendly version of the wizarding sport Quidditch, and like other sports, there's an annual national competition: the U.S. Quidditch Cup.

"Even if a boy wants to be a girl, biologically they are not", 5th-grade student Shiloh Satterfield told the committee.

But the bills' fate, and similar measures proposed in the House face an uncertain future because Speaker Joe Straus has strongly opposed the bills.

"The governor's ultimate goal is statewide LGBT protections and he is going to continue working toward that", a spokesperson for Cooper said in a statement. "It's not something that merits the support of anyone". Charles Schwertner, R-Georgetown, to say whether the bill was targeting Planned Parenthood specifically. Failing to comply would lead to a $500 civil penalty or loss of licenses for repeated offenses.

"Spending time on this during a legislative session is time wasted trying to solve a problem that does not exist", Horn wrote.

"This law invites people to single us out for discrimination, harassment or worse, violence", Goss said. Judith Zaffirini, D- Laredo, who asked Kolkhorst if it would be more effective to pass new laws increasing penalties for people who illegally pretend to be transgender to gain access to bathrooms. Patrick called the House education funding plan a "Ponzi scheme".

The Special Session began July 18 and lasts for 30 days. "The concern here is that these are state elected officials that are now dictating what local communities can do and how they can address public health issues". In May, a review of more than forty studies conducted over nearly two decades found that transgender people attempt suicide 22 times more often than the general public. "Because the blessings, if you will, far outweigh the price that I've paid". The memo was re-read to the committee by San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg on Friday.
