Democrats considering Transgender Bill of Rights

| June 29, 2022

In response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade, and Justice Clarence Thomas’s comments about what the Supreme Court should consider next, House Democrats have taken action. They want to codify a Supreme Court decision to protect transgender and gay individuals from discrimination.

From The Hill:

The proposal, dubbed the “Transgender Bill of Rights,” would codify the Supreme Court’s 2020 Bostock v. Clayton County decision that protects employees against discrimination for being gay or transgender.

The proposal would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to explicitly include protections for gender identity and sex characteristics, expand access to gender-affirming care and ban conversion therapy.

It would also require the attorney general to designate a liaison dedicated to overseeing enforcement of civil rights for transgender people and invest in community services to prevent anti-transgender violence.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force, said in a statement that the resolution would ensure transgender people can lead “full, happy lives.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” Jayapal said.

Jayapal introduced the proposal alongside Reps. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), Marie Newman (D-Ill.), Mark Takano (D-Calif.) and Ritchie Torres (D-N.Y.). The bill has 84 other co-sponsors.

Does, “full, happy lives,” also include transgenders competing in female sports? The Hill has the article here. You could view the resolution at this link.

How about normal peoples’ rights? How many of those have to get sh*t on for trannies/leftists to feel happy?

Finally the media doing something useful instead of their ridiculous pandering to the Democratic party.

*Sigh*

Will there ever be “The Unborn Bill Of Rights”?

Used to be one, ninja. It was/is number 6 on the FIRST Bill of Rights, downloaded on a tablet from The Cloud. Sadly, the despotic tyrants that want control over We, The People, no longer follow ANY of those FIRST 10 Amendments.

Remember when the demoRats voted against the 1964 Civil Rights act. Well I remember along with Peppridge Farms.

Wasn’t it a clever use of the commerce clause alone that rammed the act home with their (begrudged) consent?

Does anyone give a shit about anything that douche rocket thinks or says?

I know I don’t.

No rational person who is not deluded cares one whit about what Zero thinks or says.

On top of other objections to this bill, banning conversion therapy would be a bridge too far. Democrats are essentially saying that if you suffer from gender dysphoria and want to no longer suffer, your only option is going to be to give in to your illness (which does nothing to alleviate the suffering). If you want to get over it, too bad… sucks to be you.

It’s way past time for the people in White Coats to show up and with Car 54 for support, then show these people a nice rubber room for a while…

When a Transgender thinks, do they call it transpondering?

I’m all for equal rights. Unfortunately, some groups want special rights. Nope.

Off topic, but why hasn’t there been an article about 45 assaulting the Secret Service and attempting to storm the Capitol?
We need to get to the bottom of this, ASAFP!

Possibly because the Secret Service agents on the scene deny it happened, and are willing to so testify under oath?

Clearly all lies. Just so you know CNN says otherwise. That guy had a buffalo hat and is Drumpf’s 3rd cousin’s roommate in college, twice removed!

Which means that the Secret Service agents will never be called to testify in The Star Chamber January 6 committee.

So let’s make a new amendment for a very, very thin sliver of a minority of people, who do what they do by choice.

And, you know he doesn’t give a sh*t about ’em, except for causing disruption.

Welp, if the ex-Nazi collaborator is paying, it will happen. He has apparently told that spawn of domestic terrorists, the ex SanFransicko DA, he is running again.

On some level, you gotta feel sorry for the “others” in the alphabet – the trans population is dominating the current trend of being oppressed and needing a voice. The other letters are not getting as much attention.
